This post is sponsored by My Sister’s Closet Boutique. We are so excited that they are sponsoring this year’s event.
I have waited an entire year to say that it is time for March Madness: Fashion Edition again and I’m so excited to announce that it is finally here!!! It’s my favorite time of the year. This year we have some big plans and so we have changed the name to Style Showdown! Just know that anytime I mention Style Showdown, it is the same thing as March Madness: Fashion Edition from year’s past.
If you haven’t played in the past, we are so glad you are here to play this year! If you have played in the past few years, welcome back! This year is going to be even bigger and better and that is partly to do with the fact that we are excited to announce that My Sister’s Closet Boutique is sponsoring this year’s Style Showdown event. You’ve heard me rave about My Sister’s Closet before many times and I will continue to do so. They offer affordable fashion for women in sizes Small to 3X! I love their inclusivity and the fact that they sell their clothes at a much more affordable price than other boutiques. Make sure you check out their Instagram, give them a follow and if you see something you love….buy it! They are a small business that I love supporting and have been shopping with for years.
This year My Sister’s Closet Boutique is generously going to provide the grand prize of A YEAR OF DRESSES to the winner of the tournament! All you have to do to enter to win is play along and follow me and My Sister’s Closet on Instagram.
On top of the incredible prize that MSCB is providing to someone for participating, I am excited to announce that I was able to curate a special Style Showdown collection as part of this year’s event. The collection can be viewed below, but it launches online for purchase on Friday, March 11 at 9 am MST or in stores at 10 am. Come back here for links to the collection or watch my stories for links when it launches.

We start with 64 items, and after each set of votes we will go from 64 to 32, the sweet sixteen, the elite eight, the final four, and finally….THE CHAMPIONSHIP.
