Local blogger teams up with brand for contest

Big shopping news! H&Mhas finally launched an online store for the U.S.

With that, one of our regular guest bloggers, Lily Schlosser of Lucky Star, has collaborated with the Swedish style brand to help promote a contest that leaves one lucky fashionista with a $1,000 hm.com shopping spree and a trip to New York City.

Here's how to enter: Take a photo of yourself in some H&M gear and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #HMShopOnlineOH. (Feel free to tag it with #capstylemag too-you'll be entered in our weekly style contest.)

Your image will appear on the contest's page here.

The last two letters of the hashtag represent your state, and you can go to that page to vote for your favorite photos from other states, too. Judges will review the photos with the most votes and pick a winner, as well as a few others who will receive a $250 gift card to the site.

Don't forget to scan through Lily's blog for more H&M looks she styled herself.

Good luck!
