Get Paid $100k to Blog for Sunglass Hut

Thursday, October 14, 2010

When I mention that I was a full-time fashion blogger for almost a year the usual reaction is something along the lines of "oh, you're so lucky." Um, yeah, it was fun and I survived and all, but it was quite a lifestyle change from my attorney's salary. For most of us, blogging is hardly the glamorous lifestyle that people imagine. And, like like acting or playing basketball for a living, it only pays well for an elite few. But, I just heard about a fashion blogging gig that really is kind of spectacular.

Sunglass Hut is looking for a "Full Time Fabulous" writer to head up a jet-setting style blog on for one year under the tutelage of Rachel Bilson, Sunglass Hut Style Director. If you are chosen, your compensation package will include:
  • A salary of $100,000;

  • A fully-furnished loft apartment in Manhattan;

  • An incredibly generous clothing allowance;

  • An expense account to cover all travel and incidentals;

  • And access to high-profile fashion events across the globe where you will socialize with designers, models, and celebrities.
Check out this video of Rachel Bilson describing the job opportunity:

Looks amazing, right? So how do you apply for this fabulous opportunity?
  1. Upload a 60-second video to detailing why this job is perfect for you.

  2. Promote the video and opportunity on your blog. You can include your video audition, or most importantly get your readers to go to the Sunglass Hut to vote for you.
Ten finalists will be chosen by a panel of celebrity and editors and asked to blog regularly between December 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010. The finalist is hired based on a combination of popular vote by readers (30% weighting) and panel judging.

Bilson herself will reveal a winner on January 10, 2011. Starting on October 1, 2010, submissions will be accepted until October 27, 2010. For more details and Official Rules, visit

Good luck!
