Refinery 29 Contest: NYC's Most Stylish Hood

Hey guys! Ok so I know that I've asked you guys quite a few times to vote for me, in different competitions. The last one I competed in was the Silver Jeans competition and I got so incredibly close to winning, but unfortunately I lost in the last stretch. Well, if you know anything about me, you know that I never give up. I've been dying to take home a win in one of these style competitions, so with slight hesitation (and a little fear of failure), I entered myself again.

Refinery 29 just launched a new contest with luxury retailer Cole Haan and they're looking for NYC's Most Stylish Hood. They asked contestants to submit pictures that represent their 'hood for a chance to win an editorial on Refinery29, a Cole Haan wardrobe and FREE NYC transit access for a YEAR! Considering how much I pay in transit fees each month, I couldn't pass up this opportunity.

 I entered the following pic from my "Harlem Daze" post:

I feel like this pic best represents my love for Harlem and the classic uptown chic aesthetic. It really exudes how I feel about this neighborhood; the perfect mix of grit & glamour.

Ok so here's where I need your help! I need to rack up these votes in order to be a worthy competitor.

If you click on the 'Most Popular Contestants' tab, it should be easier to find me. Login with your Facebook account, then click the heart in the left hand corner:

Thanks in advance guys!!
