Twitter is a beautiful thing. I’ve met a number of ‘real life’ friends through tweeting. I’ve learned about breaking news from my Twitter feed. I’ve followed along and nodded my head in agreement with thousands of my closest friends during episodes of Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead. And I’ve discovered really cool, smaller brands with big personality on Twitter. Stonewear Designs is one such brand.
I can’t remember how or when I first came upon Stonewear – it was somewhere between devouring tweets about other people’s recent adventures and tweeting about devouring Dominos Pizza on a Friday night, I’m sure. #RealLife
What I first loved about Stonewear was their mission: a women’s clothing company designing functional and cute athletic clothes that made a gal feel GOOD about what she’s wearing. Stonewear clothes have a flair of femininity that I didn’t realize I wanted in athletic clothes until I put it on. I mean, why CAN’T my running tights have a reflective strip that’s also a pretty detail? Why shouldn’t my zip up jacket flatter my body rather than feel like it is boxy and too wide? Everything is made with high-quality fabric that has retained it’s shape and fit through many workouts and weekend trips.
The fact that Stonewear is also based out of Colorado, just up the road from Denver in Louisville, is another win for me. I’ve always tried to support local small businesses when possible and now, after working at a small business and living the blood, sweat and tears that go into creating a successful business, I am even more a champion for shopping local. I love knowing Stonewear clothes are designed in Louisville and manufactured in the USA.
You’ll be seeing a few product reviews in the future on some of my most favorite Stonewear items; right now, I’m totally in love with the hot yoga shorts. Super cute tie detail, no see-through fabric and withstands intense Corepower Yoga classes.
But don’t take my word for it! Head to Twitter tomorrow afternoon to discover a smaller, kick ass women’s clothing company, just like I did. Stonewear Designs is hosting a twitter party today at 11 a.m. MST where one lucky participant will win a Stonewear top or bottom. (If you win, I highly recommend the Sprinter Capri!). Just check in with @Stonewear and follow the #livestonewearadventures tag tomorrow to chat about solo adventures as a woman for your chance to win.
Catch ya on the Twitterz!
