#SnappedForACause

We had so much fun this week hosting our sweet #SnappedForACause winners. Do you remember seeing this photo contest on our pages last month? It was the cutest! We partnered with Platinum and our very dear friends at Livie & Luca and beloved fans at MJ addicts – all to raise money for the Mighty Acorn Foundation!

You all jumped in with so much heart! We had more than 200 gorgeous gals submit photos and over 30,000 votes. Together we raised $31,264.92 for Mighty Acorns! In the end, the competition ended ever so close.

Our sweet winner, 5-year-old Piper, and her mama thought it was too close – so they invited our runner up to share in the big prize: a trip to MJC headquarters to star in a Platinum photo shoot and to design their very own Platinum dresses!

Not only is Piper’s mom super generous, she is the amazing photographer behind our winning shot. Her grand prize was having the opportunity to lead and photograph our latest Platinum shoot. Just check out this sweet shot she captured! (If you’re in the Nashville area, you have to check out Gretchen Lee Photography!)

Upon arriving in Fort Wayne, it became abundantly clear that Piper, who traveled up from Tennessee, and 6-year-old Jada from Florida were just destined to become the best of friends. They had a ball smiling with pride at the Platinum shoot and later touring the MJC offices. But if you ask the girls – both longtime MJ fans – there was one huge highlight: designing their dress!

No girly detail was spared for these sweet girls who left with an experience and friendship to remember.  Their energy and enthusiasm and great big smiles certainly lifted our hearts and encouraged our spirits. In the words of our little muse, Piper …

“I love MJC – it just feels so good!”

You make us feel good too, Piper! And if any of YOU are looking for a new pretty piece to spread some goodness of your own, we have very good news – Platinum is all set to release brand-new pretties later TODAY … so be on the lookout!

Thank you so much for your interest in Matilda Jane Platinum! Although we already used the unicorn fabric in one of our sweet Ellie dresses about a year ago, be on the lookout as we always have new unicorn fabrics popping into our website (matildajaneplatinum.com). Have a wonderful day!

I have a question about the fabric and sketch posted above. Will there by any pieces with the unicorn fabric? I have a unicorn obsessed princess! 💕
