Announcing our Winner...

We have just loved seeing all your childhood moments; some funny, some heartfelt, and all as cute as a button. Thank you so much to everyone who sent in a happy snap - it's just as well we've drawn the winner randomly, as it would have been a very tough job to pick just one winning picture! If you haven't checked out the competition album, you should definitely go and have a peek - so much nostalgic goodness, and some very nice retro fashion too.

But as they say, there can only be one winner. So, without further ado, the lucky lady is...

Kellie Montgomery!

You may already know Kellie if you've ever come across her lovely blog, Dear Olive. She sent us this sweet photo of her and her brother wearing their parent's boots:

Congratulations Kellie, you'll be receiving a very cool $150 voucher to spend at Shorties. Hooray!

We Were Kids Too! Competition

Ah, nostalgia. It's the rose-tinted glasses of memory. Thinking back to childhood, we usually remember all the totally awesome parts most vividly, and suddenly all that funny music and 'interesting' attire seems quaint, perhaps even amazing.

Let's take a trip down memory lane this November. We would LOVE to add your favourite childhood photo of yourself to our "We Were Kids Too!" Facebook album. Doing so will not only give you the sentimental warm and fuzzies, but will also put you in the running for a $150 Shorties voucher!

Simply 'like' Shorties on Facebook and send your photo through to us at before November 31st for a chance to win. All the fabulous entries will be uploaded to the competition album, so make sure it's a photo you don't mind being made public.

We'll be choosing the winner at random, and will happily hand over the big voucher just in time for a pre-Christmas shopping spree at Shorties.

Cannot wait to see all your chubby cheeks and baby curls!
