calivintage: swedish hasbeens

oh, so many fun things to share today! first i will address the obvious: look who is making his first full-fledged appearance on the blog! it’s my partner in crime and patient photographer, brendan. he is actually quite the fashionable male, but generally prefers to stay out of the limelight over here at calivintage. but when swedish hasbeens contacted me to share the news about their new contest, the mister got excited and offered to model his very own pair of unisex swedish hasbeens from their fall 2011 collection.

and now onto the part where you can win stuff: swedish hasbeens is hosting a fun contest to celebrate their new unisex collection, and to support the idea of equality between men and women. simply snap a creative photo of you and a friend (could be your boyfriend, your girlfriend, your brother, whoever) that represents your version of unisex and you’ll be entered to win a pair of swedish hasbeens from their fall 2011 collection for yourself and your friend! one winner will be chosen based on the number of votes they receive and another winner will be chosen by the swedish hasbeens team based on creativity! you can enter and read all of the rules here! so get to it!

  1. Haha my ‘partner in crime’ made his own appearance on the blog too thanks to this campaign, we had so much fun goofing around with the SH boots the other day ;)
    I love how you guys interpreted it, I was sure it was going to look adorable!

  2. I covet every.single.pair. of swedish hasbeens that you have ever worn. I keep stalking ebay like a mad woman, but to no avail. I think I may just have to resign myself to choosing *one* pair and actually sucking it up and paying retail (the horror!!). Also – you two are the sweetest! I love how you have some super high heels on but Brendan is still towering over you. Cutey cutepants!

  3. I love the pictures in front of Lake Merritt! I grew up nearby, walking around the lake every week and your photos make me wonderfully nostalgic.

  4. Whoa, is that Lake Merritt? Weird. Also, I’ve never heard of Swedish Hasbeens, but now I want a pair. Ru-roh, I clearly cannot afford those choose. Sad face.
