Instagram.  Everyone knows it. Tons of people use it. But why? What’s the point? For some, it’s a place to show off their fabulous lifestyle. For others, it’s a place for the best food-porn available.  But what really gets us here at The Box is the insanely inspiring fashion we find there. You may have seen our post yesterday about 3 fabulous fashionistas on Instagram that you should be following (and if you didn’t, check it out now), so you know that there are some incredibly talented people out there.

But fashion and style aren’t just for the elite of Instagram. Even the most popular fashion-grammers started out small (because we all have to start somewhere!).  We know that many of you are working to be noticed for your incredible style and fashion sense, and we want to encourage that!

So here’s the deal– LightInTheBox is holding a massive Instagram campaign called #5DayFashion. Every day, from April 28 to May 2, there is a new theme, and every day you have a chance to win one of our daily prizes by sharing a picture that goes with the theme. At the end of the 5 days, there will be a huge Grand Prize up for grabs. Intro Facebook

The best part, though, is that winners for each day’s giveaway winners will be chosen by some established Instagram fashionistas, like @brewinkittiesandtitties, @mallorybby, and @kokokristenn to name just a few.

Ladies, meet your judge :)

Want to join in the fun? It’s easy.  All you have to do is follow us on Instagram, check in each day to see the theme, post a pic, and tag us @lightinthebox and #5DayFashion.
