Rebecca Michaels Performance Clothing (Giveaway)

UPDATE: 6/21/12 -- This giveaway is closed, and the winner is #43, Jacqueline!!  I will contact you, but if you miss it, please e-mail me!

I'd like to credit in advance "The Ukrainian" who helped me stage some photos for this post. =)

Perhaps because I don't dress well when working out, I was offered the opportunity to try some fun pieces from the Rebecca Michaels summer collection.


Since I complained about my issues with headbands staying on my head, I also got to try their Violet Love headbands.  "The Ukrainian" didn't hesitate in throwing one on, and I think he said he looks like Rambo in it.

Anyway, I'll start with my experience with the headbands.  They are very soft and actually look SUPER cute on!  They also cover a large portion of the top of your head, so those little fly-aways don't come drooping down.  Or is that just me?  My hair is normally cut in layers, so I do experience this quite a bit.

Unfortunately, they weren't able to hold on that well through my Insanity workout, at least not without adjusting it a few times.  I think that my hair is just very slippery (not oily, just VERY straight and thick), so I would rather wear these out or when I'm walking.  Again, they are cute!

As for the clothes, they are also REALLY soft and really comfortable, almost like a second skin.  I never wear workout clothing like this, so it was interesting to experience wearing items that are a little more fitted and... colorful.

Top and pants.  The pants come up to a comfortable point on my waist.  The straps on the top are adjustable, which is great because I had to bring them all the way up.  There is a shelf-bra inside the tank -- I'm typically not a fan of these since they don't usually feel like they are doing the job (and there's really not much job to do, really -- hah!), but I thought these were adequate... just not for running.

Whopping 3-pounders!!

The shorts were my favorite -- light and flattering, also coming up at a good point on my waist.  Even with all my sweat, they dried quickly.

Yes, I've already acknowledged my gnarly widow's peak...
Mid-length shorts: I was surprised because I thought these were the same length as the ones above.  I liked these also because they didn't ride up or anything.

The team at Rebecca Michaels was generous enough to offer a sampler to a lucky reader!  This giveaway will be open to residents of the U.S. and will end on June 20 at noon!

  1. Cool giveaway! A person can always use cute, new workout attire to help with motivation. I'd most like to try one of those headbands. My hair is also in layers, and it's a lot easier to concentrate on bike riding without wisps of hair flying in your eyes. :)

    BTW, aren't kettlebells awesome?

  46. My favorite dress in the whole world is Rebecca Michaels hoody dress. Next I'm going to try the triangle dress - the website says it doubles as a top.

    I have really crazy thick wavy/curly hair and use the performance headbands for serious workouts. The couture ones are good for looking cute but aren't really for sweating.
