oscars rc roster

We’re so excited for the 87th Academy Awards, we needed to start fantasy shopping for them right away! Build a dream wardrobe for the Oscars with a $15,000 virtual budget at www.BattleShop.co this week and get glam. Don’t forget to add finishing touches like makeup and perfume to complete your looks! You could win an item under $50 if you’re a TOP 3 FINALIST next week so shop smart!


New to BattleShop? Here’s how it works:

– Head to www.BattleShop.co and click the orange START A NEW BATTLE button once you’ve signed in.

– Use our search bar to find the required items on our OSCARS RED CARPET fashion roster. Add all of the things you love to your Fitting Room as you shop, like you would in a real fitting room.

– Once you’ve found the pieces you want to compete with, move the required items to your Closet. Your $15,000 battlebudget will decrease as you move items to the Closet. Be sure to stay within your budget!

– When all of the categories in the Closet are full, click the LOCK button at the bottom of the roster and your Closet will be submitted to a voting league. Be sure to LOCK at least ONE closet by Friday at 11:59 pm (EST).

– First you’ll vote within your league and if you WIN, you’ll move on to the FINALS where you’ll compete for SOMETHING UNDER $50 FROM YOUR CLOSET! Not bad for online fantasy shopping, are we right?

Since we already have you fantasy shopping for silver & gold shoes at BattleShop.co, we figured you’d be up for this Choose The Shoes challenge.

Crossbody Bag


This week your BattleShop closet should consist of anything you’d wear for a high-spirited weekend of super fanning so our top pick for the most appropriate tailgate bag is one that leaves your hands free for cold beverages and heavy high-fiving! The hands free aspect makes the crossbody bag a winner but the fact that it literally becomes part of your outfit the second you sling it on makes it our tailgate MVP. Check out the details on our favorite crossbody bags at the moment.

Listen, we don’t recommend scaling any rock walls in these boots, but feel free to take a carefully paced stroll down a sunlit trail in them.

These great styles are perfect for your Glamping themed BattleShop.co closet this week. Just fantasy shop for the required items on our fashion roster and add unlimited accessories if your $2000 virtual budget allows for them, then you’re on your way to a chance to compete for AMEX gift cards!

Best Trends Forever, WWYW - Which Would You Wear?

Best Trends Forever – How Do You Take Your Peplum?

The peplum style has been around since the 1940s although most of us know it from the first resurgence in the 80s. Rocked as a dress or blouse, this flared or ruffled style is ultra-chic and figure-flattering which is what makes it one of our Best Trends Forever. We’ve put together two peplum looks. Tell us which one you’d wear!

which would you wear Peplum

Our look on the left features a brightly hued Matthew Williamson dress from Flannels.com ($1,010), Louise Et Cie Nerine heels from Lord & Taylor ($139), and the Erica Combo Cross-body from Tory Burch ($450).

Our look on the right features a gorgeous Alexander McQueen Ruffle-Drape peplum top from Saks Fifth Ave. ($1,085), skinny J. Brand Mid Rise Capri jeans from Shopbop ($158), deliciously nude Salvatore Ferragamo Pellas sandals from Zappos Couture ($750) and the fun Stella McCartney Faux Deer Foldover clutch from LuisaViaRoma ($1,340).
