I have been dealing with a super annoying situation with my iPhone lately. After I updated it in November it started doing crazy stuff with my iTunes. Songs skip, fast forward and play at double speed. It happens randomly and makes me want to throw my phone in the Chicago River, or Atlantic Ocean, depending on where I am at the time.
So I have been listening to a lot of Pandora lately. It is a nice way to change up my tunes, although I still want to figure the iPhone thing out. If you listen to Pandora much, you probably have heard quite a few advertisements for Kate Hudson’s athletic brand Fabletics. After seeing her clothes on the Today Show, I decided to give them a try.
By signing up online for their VIP membership, you receive your first outfit for just $25. While I don’t love the idea of a month-to-month membership, this one is not nearly as bad as Proactiv, where they just charge you every month without notice, regardless of whether you want their product or not.
How it works: As a VIP member you receive great monthly discounts on outfits that are picked out for you. Once a month you receive an e-mail that your picks are ready to be viewed. You then have 5 days to view these outfits, choose one, or opt out for the month. If you don’t opt out within those 5 days, your credit card on file is charged $49.95 which can then be credited to another month for a purchase. If you opt out, you are not charged for that month. Outfits start at $49.95 and ship for free.
I signed up and then looked through their outfits. I opted for an upgraded outfit for $34.95 for a pair of leggings, a sports bra, and a tank top.
What I thought: I love the idea of athletic leggings, but have never found a pair that looks good on me. Everyone looks great in Lululemon leggings, but I swear I look like a sausage in it’s casing in them. However, as soon as I put these on, it was love at first sight.
My husband knows how I feel about leggings and my struggle to find a good pair. When I tried this pair on, he agreed that they were great and the membership was a keeper. We both thought that these pants were flattering and well made. And I love the fun colors.
I also love the sports bra which is super comfy and has a stylish cut. I love how this outfit can go from the gym to a nice afternoon out running errands or grabbing lunch. As an athletic coach, it is the perfect combination.
I love the looks I have seen and can’t wait to see what summer styles come out soon. I did opt out of last month, but there is an outfit I might go back and buy. You can also easily cancel your membership at anytime.
Wait, there’s more: There is a men’s line that Rock has his eye on. The mens version also carries nice looking athletic clothes that can be worn to the gym or out and about. AND, there is a kid’s line. I will be trying out the first outfit free option soon.
Please note that I was not contacted or compensated by Fabletics. These opinions are, as always, my own. I simply really liked this product and wanted to share my great experience.
Have you ever tried Fabletics? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
