This is a guest review by 5 Minutes for Books columnist Jennifer Donovan.
Amanda, Kyle, and I had the opportunity to check out some cool product lines. Read on and make sure to enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post. I am sure that you are not going to see us on the runways of Paris or New York anytime soon, and I think that we definitely need to get a professional photographer first, but we had a lot of fun feeling like we were a part of the Hollywood elite!
When I’m out and about with kids, there is a lot of stuff to keep up with: sippy cups, snacks, my purse, a stroller–and that’s just the beginning. When I was asked to try out the Sport LOOP from La LOOP (and to give away two of them), honestly, my first thoughts were, “It would be nice to keep up with my sunglasses, but do I need a special product? I can wear them on my head or put them on my shirt when I don’t have them on. Who cares if Heidi Klum wears one?”
But on a recent family outing, I wore the Sport LOOP all day long. I loved it! The sunglasses always stayed securely in the loop, even when bending down and taking care of Kyle. The rolled necklace stretches over your head and is very comfortable. I hardly noticed I was wearing anything, and then when I needed my sunglasses, I didn’t have to dig in my purse to find them. When I took them off, I didn’t later wonder where I put them, because it was so easy to just put them in the loop.
If you want something more stylish and less sporty, you should check out the La LOOP collection.
It all began when entrepreneurs Debbie Zoullas and Elizabeth Faraut envisioned the concept of high-end jewelry with a purpose. Following this inspiration, they designed the world’s first necklace created specifically to hold eyewear, an invention they named La LOOP. The debut of this chic, and most importantly convenient accessory marked the introduction of an entirely new category in the luxury marketplace – functional jewelry.
Since its launch, many have tried to copy the La LOOP concept. However, no one comes close to capturing the brand’s functionality as La LOOP’s design features a patented hinge. Known as the LOOP, this hinge uses 360-degree swivel technology to ensure that glasses stay safe and in place, without bending, twisting or falling to the floor. These LOOPS sit at the bottom of stunning, stylish and modern necklace designs that are made with a variety of high-end materials including leather, precious metals, coral, turquoise and gemstones. These designs are updated seasonally, reflecting and complementing current fashion trends just like every accessory does.
Amanda and Kyle were able to try out some of the summer collection from Ella Moss. The dark green is from Ella Girl and the peach and white stripe is from Splendid Girl. Kyle is sporting some shorts from Splendid Littles (and hamming it up as you can see).
What I like about these quality clothes are that they are very stylish. Amanda wore her top to the movies with some skinny capri jeans, and she looked much nicer than if she had just worn a T-shirt and some shorts. They are also made for comfort. The cotton knit is thick and soft. There is an adult collection as well, and I think that the merging of style with comfort is a perfect plan for moms who are generally out with our kids, and therefore don’t want to wear anything that is not easy-care. Both collections can be found at many online stores as well as at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and Saks 5th Avenue. You can view and purchase the Splendid collection for women right at their site.
