I am a huge bargain shopper. I love coupons. I love free samples. I am always looking for deals. So when I hear about celebrities coming out with new clothing, fragrance, make-up or shoe lines, I don’t really pay attention to it. In fact, I rarely give any thought to them as I really don’t care if I’m buying a shirt made my J-Lo or Hilary Duff or Miley Cyrus. I like wearing comfortable, cheap clothes. I’m not picky or fussy. Comfort is key for me. But I also don’t want to break the bank.
Well, in this month’s issue of Shape Magazine, there was a spotlight article on Kate Hudson. In the article, it discussed a new athletic clothing line she helped co-found called Fabletics. My initial thought was “wow, another celebrity cashing in on their fame” but once I started reading more about the company, my skepticism diminished. I really began to admire the company.
The company strives to make high quality clothing at an affordable price. Obviously this prompted me to check out their site. I found out that the first outfit (yes, outfit – top and bottom) you purchase is only $24.95! You can’t go wrong with getting a workout shirt and pants for 25 bucks and they even offer free shipping! Immediately I knew I had to try them out. I ended up purchasing the Thrive outfit and received it within a week.
I bought the shirt in purple, just like in the picture. Initially, I thought the shirt felt a little thin. However, I’ve been wearing it outside in the 30 and 40 degree weather and haven’t been cold. Don’t let the thinness fool you. It is a very warm shirt. I’m really looking forward to running outside in it….instead of just wearing it to school
The capris are a little high for my liking, but then again, I’m SUPER short (only 4′ 11″) so that is probably why. But in the pictures, I feel like it has a high waist? Maybe it’s just me? I thought about returning them, but I absolutely love them. The material is great – and warm. The length of these “capris” are basically leggings on me so it works out perfect. Otherwise, I fold the bottoms under to make them into capris.
All in all, I love this company. They are trying to keep their prices affordable and make comfortable, cute athletic apparel. If nothing else, I don’t think you can go wrong with ordering a complete outfit for $25.00. As for you men, maybe it would be a good Christmas present for your significant other? (If you don’t have a significant other, feel free to send me one for Christmas )
