hip-T {review + giveaway}



Let's all say goodbye to the days of uncomfortable denim disasters, and make room for hip-T's!!






For me, finding jeans (or any pants for that matter) that fit nicely is a nightmare. It seems that most jeans lack substantial coverage, which can lead to some pretty embarrassing fashion faux pas. (bending over to pick up a flung pacifier in the busy checkout lane? ughhhh! ) Straight from the hip-T website:


Don't let your style fall through the crack and become a
victim of one of the following fashion crimes:


An Unwanted game of thong peek-a-boo!

Bending over at work and showing your boss the green polka-dot
thong you're wearing is definitely not the way to get that promotion
you've been hoping for!
The Plumber's crack
Ladies, let's leave this one to the professionals.
The Dreaded "Muffin Top"
No one wants a muffin top - unless it's blueberry!




We all know what these gals are talking about! Christine and Kelley, the brilliant gals behind g3 Originals and these wonderful hip-T's were tired of compromising comfort and style just to save face. Let me tell you, I love my hip-T!! It's comfy and stylish, yet it's not bulky, and even smooths out my tummy! See how it works? Just slip it on, and voila! Genius!! I'm all for layering, and I love the way that the hip-T turns any old shirt I have into a more flattering look. Oh how I love you, hip-T!!!

See that "enter to win" logo on their banner? The fine ladies at hip-T host their very own weekly giveaway. Yes, I said weekly. Just another opportunity for you to become a happy hip-T wearer!!




We're not done yet either!





The Hoola scarf! The trendy, yet sophisticated look of a circle scarf, which is so versatile, and a super easy way to accessorize! We're all busy, and so you can appreciate a simple way to look like you just stepped out of a fashion mag :) (check out Beyonce sporting one here!) My Hoola is so cozy, and I can wear it out to the grocery store and running errands, or to a nice dinner with my hubby. I'm a big fan of products that simplify my life but still look make me look great!
The fabulous Christine and Kelley have offered a hip-T and a Hoola scarf to a lucky ready of The Ivy Twines! What an awesome giveaway!!
