Ladies, I have to tell you that I had a bit of a moment last weekend. I have been following Allison of Curvy Girl Chic for probably over 3 years and when I saw that she was going to be hosting the launch party for the new Livi Active line at my local Lane Bryant, I was a bit star struck. To tell you the truth, I am totally awkward in social situations, like Mary Katherine Gallagher awkward. As I walked in the store, I was so happy there were not a whole lot of people there yet, but I was a little early. I really wanted to take at look at the new active wear because it is a something I am lacking. Walking is a daily routine for me and I usually look pretty hideous doing it in way too small yoga pants with frayed edges and bleach stains paired with an old t-shirt of my husbands.
As I perused, I walked behind a woman waiting for the fitting room and I realized it was Allison. I was in total nerd mode when I circled around (attempting to act cool) and said “Your Allison!”. Ya, I know, not nerd like at all. Thankfully she was SUPER SWEET and gave me a big smile and hug. I could not believe how much we hit it off. She did not even make me feel bad when I dropped half of my granola bar on the ground as I was talking to her.
Well, besides meeting Allison, I was super pleased with the selection and tried on a few pieces. I decided to go with the Kangaroo Pocket Hoodie in Electric Blue and the Spa Pant. They are both super soft and are perfect for walking and hiking during the fall and winter. A total upgrade to my grungy workout gear that may or may not be used for house cleaning too.
And here is Allison pulling names for prizes (no, I did not win). I did however get my 2nd item for only $10 & got a free set of ear buds!
I know this is sounding totally like a sponsored post by now, but it’s not. I just really had a great time at the event and have been enjoying feeling cute while I am working out.
Now I just need to get some new walking shoes.
I hope you ladies are having a wonderful weekend!
Do you have special active wear or do just sport the leftovers & forget-me-nots?
