Today's Everyday Fashion: Win an LG DoublePlay [closed]

This post brought to you by LG DoublePlay™. All opinions are 100% mine.






































True story: I was talking to my cell phone provider one day when they informed me that i was eligible for a phone upgrade. Since my current phone (an old Droid that someone gave me second-hand) is falling apart, I decided then and there that it was time for a new phone! The very next day, I was offered a brand-new LG DoublePlay™ to review and figured it was fate and that I should go for it. :-) An added bonus - they gave me two so I can give one away to a reader, yay! 

The most unique feature about this phone is definitely the double-screen action. It takes some getting used to when you are typing, however, I do like that you can be doing two things at once! For example, if a website it taking awhile to load, you can write a text message on the screen below. Super-cool. It also comes with a fancy 5 megapixel camera (I'm hoping this will improve the pictures I post on Twitter), group texting options like Cloud Text and Group Text, and is exclusively available at T-mobile. I don't know about you guys, but I always on my phone (pretty much every minute I'm away from my computer!) writing emails, jotting down notes, and tweeting like a crazy (I tweet more when I'm away than I do from my computer). Do you use social media on your phone? How do you think an LG DoublePlay™ would change the way you interact? Just leave a comment below to be automatically entered into the giveaway!

  5. I'm one of those scared-of-technology people (the one who couldn't figure out how to comment on an earlier post). I'm learning! This phone seems easy to use!

  6. It would be great to give one of my family members a new, tech -savvy phone!! They do so much for me, even during the toughest economies. Thanks for doing a giveaway!

  9. I just got my first smart phone a couple months ago.  I definitely take advantage of Facebook and Google on my droid!  There are definitely times that I wish my HTC had that double screen feature!  Like yesterday, I was writing a comment on someone's Facebook, and I wanted to make sure I had my facts straight before I hit send, but I had to close Facebook to open my web browser window.  Life is so hard, right.  Haha.  :D

    ReplyDelete
  10. That phone looks awesome...and so does your outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm the only one of my friends that still has an "old school" phone.  LOL.  This would be a big leap for me.  :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'd love to give the phone to one of my parents who are still rockin some old school phones!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ok, so this is an awesome phone, the split screen idea is really neat...and your outfit is really cute...as usual! 

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have to say that I am drawn to your handbag, sweetie!  It is amazing!  The phone looks great too!  LOL!  Good luck to the lucky winner!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. how awesome is this phone? and from tmobile? this giveaway is meant for me lol

    ReplyDelete
  22. Gorgeous outfit. And I would LOOOOOVE this phone. I've had my eye on it for a while. I have a Blackberry and it just isn't cutting it anymore, but the LG is pricey so I've been holding off. I have such limited time to use social media, that this would make the most of that time! 

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is so cool! My phone contract's about to end so this would be great to try out! 

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sweet shoes...sweet LGDP.

    ReplyDelete
  25. You always look stunning in red - it's such a classic color. And another classic, your bag, is fab as well!

  26. Shoe Carnival.... really???? I was looking at the pic thinking how gorgeous those shoes were - never would have guessed they were from Shoe Carnival!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the Red Blazer. I am always looking for new ways to style mine.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'd love to win!
    Also - your red blazer is so chic! We had to wear these awful ones as part of my high school uniform and I've been terrified of them ever since

    ReplyDelete
  29. cool phone! would love it! I do love that red blazer J...love, love love!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I still have a flip phone so this would be an awesome gift for me :) fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  31. This would be life changing! All I have is a cameraless (yes that's right!) small block of a phone that can barely make a call. Not to mention I am impatient and love to multitask. This would be amazing! 

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would love to use the fancy camera for Twitter too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm so intrigued by this phone and the double screens.  As a chronic multitasker I think I could do some real damage with this one!

    ReplyDelete
  34. amazing..!! first of all I have never ever seen a double screen phone..!!! so THUMBS UP for this unique feature.
    It would change my world  because I am moving away from my family for my job & I don't have my own laptop as of now. So this can do pretty much everything that a laptop does..I mean I can play games, use internet (wow such a big scree!!) & most importantly owing such a phone will definitely make me THE STAR. :)

    P.S: i totally adore ur blazer n shoes.. <3 <3

    ReplyDelete
  35. that so cool i am an iphone user since 2009 and have been frustrated with the texting options since the beginning i love how this not only has the dual screen but has a slide to A REAL KEYBOARD!! very impressed and i really like how you can see eveything that is going on even though you are on the internet you can still see your texts and email without leaving the screen whicch is orricataing when your oin facebook lol oh and I LOVE the red blazer!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My phone is way old, it take 4 screens to access my email, i've been impatiently awaiting my upgrade though! This phone would save me so much time and make working on the go so much easier!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Awesome giveaway!  Love the outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  38. LOVE THE LOOK!!!  I've had a current obsession with red and leopard print (animal print). 

    ReplyDelete
  39. Clare, red blazers also remind me of ushers. Definitely want to proceed with caution when wearing them! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Christina, not only are these shoes Shoe Carnival and cost me $10, but I've had them  for about 6 years!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. This phone looks awesome! I'm a T-mobile customer and my phone is broken, but I'm not under warranty anymore and not eligible for an upgrade yet :( this phone would allow me to communicate with friends and family!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This phone looks awesome. I love having actual keys to type with and getting emails on a mobile device makes life so much easier.
    I got a red blazer the other day and love it too!

    Love this outfit - you look SO good in red!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Lord, Honey, your phone is falling apart and you get offered one to check out and one to give away.  My phone has fallen apart (i'm using a 5 year old $10 phone in the mean time) and you are giving one away!  The stars are aligned!  I NEED to win it!

    ReplyDelete
  45. LOL my fingers are crossed for you Venetia!! :-) 

    ReplyDelete
  46. What a cute outfit and phone! I definitely love the features on this phone like the double screen. And right now I am shopping for a red blazer for the holidays. It's a definite MUST!

    ReplyDelete
  47. This phone looks great....I'm currently looking through several cracked pieces on my phone which makes it hard to see what I'm looking at. So this phone would help me to view your page easier everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love this outfit, will try something similar on monday.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love the jacket and the shoes. Bright, crisp,and classy. And I could use a new phone.

    ReplyDelete
  50. LG DoublePlay would allow me to be touch regularly with friends and family.  Right now its either on lunch breaks, boss is out or when the kids are gone to bed that I can check messages on my computer.  My husband and kids keep laughing at me and saying even the teenagers are more up to date than me when it comes to technology.

    Today's look is really nice, I will be trying it out for next weeks casual Friday.

    ReplyDelete
  51. i love the jacket i want one, and i need a phone too
    pick me please

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm always using social media on my phone!  It would be awesome to be able to open a link from Facebook or Twitter and still have the original app open!  Sounds like it would be possible with the LG double play :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. This is my new favorite outfit of yours!  and the phone looks awesome as well :-)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love the red blazer!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think the the LG Double Play would change my life completely!! I've had my current phone for more than 6 years and it is falling apart. The internet is horrible on it...but really what can I expect from such an old phone. I recently graduated from college and will be entering graduate school. As I am maturing and am entering a more sophisticated and professional life, it would be nice to have such a sophisticated and professional phone. I'd be able to keep in contact with people from my current job, prospective employers,people from undergrad, grad school, family, and friends! I would love to win this phone!!! Pleassseee.: )

    ReplyDelete
  56. Love the outfit...your good a making me think of other options besides black! Have gotten quite a few great ideas from your blog...~ The phone giveaway is a bonus!  Does look like it would take a bit of getting used too. Keep up your fabulous fashion tips!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. J, you're awesome! I wore an outfit almost identical to what you're wearing today! I wore a navy blazer with a lavender button up and and lavender/purple flats!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I have a red blazer & I can't wait to recreate this look! Thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh!! My daughter needs a new phone desperatly!! This would be a GREAT gift for her!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh! I just re-read and must have skipped th e part that it was for T Mobile. We're Verizon. : ( I

    ReplyDelete
  61. I do use social media on my phone a lot.  I think maybe too much, but oh well!  This phone looks amazing and would make it easier to be organized :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Your outfits have been extra amazing lately!  It seems like you've been switching it up and trying different things - I love it!

    It would help keeping me entertained on my daily commuting trip - 11/2 hour each way-
    Thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  64. Love the blazer!  I'm adding a red blazer to my wish list!  I'd also love a new phone!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I don't have a smart phone, so an LG Doubleplay would change my life significantly. I could look up directions to places, so I wouldn't get lost all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I think this would be a great tool for my life!

    ReplyDelete
  67. This phone has got to totally be mine! I have the old Iphone 3 and you can only imagine the shap that that poor thing is in! I freezes like every second of the day and practically has a mind of its own when it wont even let me make calls at time. The button on top of the phone completly stopped working. One of the speakers on the bottom of the phone completly stopped working. It ischipping all around the corners, like litteraly there are little pieces missing on my phone. It is also cracked all around, ha it looks like i painted it using the crackle nail polish. And last but not least, my phone is so ancient that it isnt sold anywhere! Like if i got to the store i can find the iphone 4s for 200 dollars, iphone 4 for 100 dand then sadly the is for 99 cents! Like come on! My phone isnt even worth 99 cents! Having this new phone would definitely bring me back to the world. My current phone is just so old that i cant even download apps because my phone isnt the version all these new apps are requiring, i know, how sad! I enjoy Twittering and so it is just so hard because my phone is extremely slow and just loves to freeze. I love to twitter and so this new phone would be like a major gift if i won.  I could definetly update to the world and twiiter so much more, download great apps, and connect to the world much much faster than right now. I have it all figured out as to how i would be able to use this phone company wise. So please his would be a major win for me and I would be just about the happiest girl in the world.

    ReplyDelete
  78. The double screen action/being able to work while waiting for things to load is a huge time saver

    ReplyDelete
  79. It would help with my business..multi-tasking with consultants and able to look up their downline stats to help answer their questions when I'm away from computer...which is alot

    ReplyDelete
  80. This would be such an incredible Christmas surprise! I am a multi-tasking extraordinaire, so it would be fantastic to be able to surf a website while checking my emails and texts on the other screen.  Or maybe even take an image and send it on the other screen...at the same time? This sounds incredible.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I had a posted a couple of weeks ago, how I would love to do a wardrobe make-over, but needed to lose a couple pounds first (my cousin, Lisa, actually 'turned me on' to your site - I love your fashion sense) - a Droid phone would help me keep track of my eating habits/schedule, work-outs, and your fashion ideas (along with helping me find new tricks to help the pounds come off!)...  I can't wait for the day that I can shop with ease...thanks to your interesting and detailed ideas!! 

    ReplyDelete
  82. i love your blazer!

    ReplyDelete
  83. $10 shoe! Wow!!! Love the outfit...and the phone seems pretty awesome too.

  93. Red and cheetah print is a great combination!! I am not on the hunt for some red shoes...and I finally decided that I like red jeans -all your fault! :) 

    ReplyDelete
  94. i think an LG double play would change the way i interact a whole lot!  I am stuck with an older phone that doesnt do anything fancy! I dont even have the internet  i am deprived!  I would love to join the 21st century! AND i want a better phone than my boyfriend so I can rub it in his face like he does to me with his galaxy.... oh and I would get to check your blog while at work too instead of waiting til I get home!

    ReplyDelete
  95. *hand raised in the air* Pick me, pick me!  :)
     I am in the market for a new phone as we speak (er, type).

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'd love to win a phone! I run my own business and I've found trying to do it without a smart phone is getting a little challenging...

    btw -- LOVE the red blazer!

    ReplyDelete
  97. I think I'd definitely use twitter more... and also love this outfit :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. It would change the way I interact a lot!  I just have a regular cell phone now, so with an LG  doubleplay I may even start tweeting.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Omg.  I'm hating my phone right now.  If I had the LG I would do everything I do currently (post pics, social media, browse internet) but better and faster!

    ReplyDelete
  100. My phone is so old and so slow and I want to use it for tweeting but most of the time it won't work :(

    ReplyDelete
  101. I would so so love to win a LG DoublePlay! Please, Santa! :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. Umm, I use a "feature" phone, which basically has no features.  And LG DoublePlay would probably change my life.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I have the oldest phone right now and I don't even think I can download apps on it, so a new phone like the DoublePlay would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I am such a phone multi-tasker so this would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I have a phone that I use for texting only and to have a phone to interact via internet would be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Nice phone, would love to win it.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Love the jacket! What a great statement piece! I always go for a  neutral, but now I'm thinking I need a bold blazer :)

    ReplyDelete
  108. I love the red with the animal print purse.  I've been searching for animal prints to add to my wardrobe.  Very cool phone, I have not seen it before and I'd love to have a keyboard again.  BTW, don't you love Tmobile?  I always get such great customer service when I call.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Really enjoy ur blog. Thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I love love love the red blazer.  Especially paired with that bag!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  118. Hi J, I religiously check your email every morning to get some inspiration to start off my morning.  As for your question in regards to the LG DoublePlay, it would definitely change my world if I had one.  First off all I don't have internet on my phone and my black berry pearl (old model) the ball as stopped working so I can't make any phone calls unless people call me.  So has of right now I am just making it work with what I have but the LG DoublePlay would be a great way for me to get a hold of my family and friends during the holidays and have internet so I can be able to check my email from anywhere.  Plus, I have a birthday coming up on the 21st, I turn 34.  Happy Holidays and Thank You so much for your inspirations!!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I first noticed your blog through a news feed on facebook and I thought...HERE we go again...fashion sights are a headache to me. Well....once I actually browsed through your pictures I was amazed! In my mind I never had enough clothes, but then I noticed how you mixed different items, colors, shoes and my favorite blazers and cardigans...my wardrobe suddenly became endless!!! You definately inspired me and for that I say thank you!!! Now, in terms of the LG...to be completely honest I already have a new phone so I dont really need it but I know someone who would totally LOVE it! Awesome double screen :)

    ReplyDelete
  120. What a great giveaway, it would change a lot for me , all I can do with my current phone is text and of course voicemail. Yes, my phone is super old. Would like to be in the "know how loop" with apps etc.

    ReplyDelete
  121. Hi J, currently I do not use social media on my phone because my phone is slightly ancient. It would be cool to have an up to date phone. Also group texting sounds like it'll be fun.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Hey J! What an awesome phone :) The first thing I thought of when I read about the features on this phone is how it would be so so so helpful when you have to look up info on the net on your phone (addresses, directions, phone numbers, etc.) that you need to text to a friend. This phone would make that problem go away! 

    ReplyDelete
  123. This is amazing! I definitely think this is a game changer! Two things at once? Awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  124. I love the camera feature- it would be so nice to hot to have to bring along a separate camera everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  125. looks like a great phone. Mine is OLD and I need a new one :)  Love the outfits with the red blazer. I recently scored one at a thrift shop for $2 :)

    ReplyDelete
  126. Great giveaway thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Awe this is so kind. good luck to everyone!! your outfit is perfect for places where they let you wear jeans yet you need to have your look pulled together. 

    ReplyDelete
  128. I'de be able to check into work email more often and be up on the times~!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I'm the same way with social media. I only really check or update it from my phone. Love the double screen on this one!

    ReplyDelete
  130. woah! the double screen is pretty cool!

    ReplyDelete
  136. This phone is wayyyy nicer and more functional than my LG Neon...I would love this!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  137. I just scrolled through many blog posts to find one with this red blazer. I knew you had it. Knew it was VS (but that you got it somewhere else) 


    I have a few questions if you wouldn't mind.  How do you like it?  What is the length of it?  I'm looking on line and was thinking of the one that is 22" in length but am worried about sleeve length.  Is sleeve length an issue?  (This one is what I'm thinking but there are so many VS blazers. I hate not having their clothes in stores.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Colleen, yep I love this blazer! I think it has a very modern fit which helps it not look like a uniform. I'm 5'7" and wearing a size 2 and am very happy with the length and sleeve length. The link you posted isn't working :-( but the length of my blazer is about 22 inches! Hope this helps.
