I love a great running outfit. I like my workout clothes to be soft and comfortable. I mean who likes to be uncomfortable while running? I also like cute gear which sometime is hard to find. All I’m asking for is function and cute as well as comfortable. Am I asking for too much?
I was excited when these beauties arrived for me this week!
I was recently asked to review a new company called Ellie. I had my reservations, I’ll be honest. When the company first kicked off its service, I loved it. Although it had some hiccups. As a new company with rapid growth there were some issues early on and the company realized it was going to need to change its business model. And that is where Ellie clothing line comes into play.
Ellie is a new line of workout clothes made in the United States specifically for the Ellie company. After much feedback from customers on other brands feel, fit and design, the folks at Ellie felt they had a better understanding of their customers needs. And could offer a monthly collection they created to users rather than just providing them a selected outfit from other brands.
For $49.95 a month you get two pieces of workout clothing sent to your home per month! Let’s be honest I hate dragging my children into clothing stores to shop and if we all are being honest I think it’s safe to say they hate it too! AND not to mention when is the last time to spent just $49 on two pieces of workout clothing? My last pair of running shorts for spring were $32 alone at Dicks!
The program works in two ways you can sign up to be a Fit Fashionista Club member and choose any two pieces for $49 a month OR you can be a non-member and pay retail price for the pieces you want. I chose to become a Fit Fashionista which triggered me to fill out a fitness style quiz. Currently I love the gym and running, but based on the season and what I need in my wardrobe I went with I heart the gym.
After you finish your quiz the program selects for you the two garments that best match your style. The program had actually picked out for me a different top but there was something about Tempt Me Top that was screaming “PICK ME”. I really liked the detail on the back. The program selected for me the Kiss Me Capri’s which are completely my style. You can select any pieces you wish from the collection not just those that match your profile. That was great for me since I selected pieces from outside my profile.
The detailing on the top of the capri’s was great and they are a mid-rise which fit me perfectly! What’s great about the service is let’s say I am in desperate need of shirts…I can select 2 shirts rather than a bottom. For those of us who deal with constant changing seasons, it’s the perfect way to get exactly what you want.
From the moment I felt the material I knew these clothes were for me. I put them on and told my husband to look out cause I wasn’t taking them off all day. I even rocked out a run in them and felt great doing it. The top breathed really well and although I was sweaty, I wasn’t stiffing like in some tighter fitting shirts. Running in clothes you feel great in always makes me want to run forever! I’m comfortable and it’s easy to get on a roll. These clothes were well made and washed nicely.
This outfit was perfectly my style and I can’t wait to see what next month brings! You can view the entire February Collection on the site now!
