Fran’s Closet RX: Review and Giveaway! (contest closed)

in Giveaways!, Product Reviews

A short while back, I had an opportunity to work with Mandy, the mastermind behind Fran’s Closet RX. In helping to spread the word about her Crossfit clothing line, I was fortunate enough to review one of her popular designs, an off-the-shoulder sweatshirt lined with the softest fleece!

Love at first wear. To get an idea of how obsessed I became with this sweatshirt, I posted it to Instagram, after multiple comments from my youngest sister asking if I was ever going to take it off.. or wash it..

And continued to wear it..

Not too long after I became obsessed with my sweatshirt, a Twitter contest opened up with an opportunity to caption a tank top:

It was right around the time of the whole Miley incident, and a clever idea quickly came to me: “I don’t twerk. I jerk.” Guess who won herself a free tank?

So far, Fran’s Closet RX scored 2/2 with me..

I had a competition last weekend and my partner and I were trying to come up with a cute team name and accompanying design. The competition was called “Chicks and Dicks,” and since his name was Chuck, we came up with “Chuck and Chick.” Being the non creative types that we are regarding design, I emailed Mandy since she has created her own custom designs for Crossfit and non-Crossfit related things. Without hesitation, she came up with a design concept, put in an order for our shirts, and had the items shipped out with a turnaround time of about a week!

Adorable, aren’t we they? Most of her tanks and tees are between $17-$20, with sweatshirts $35-$40. Pretty much any design can be created on any style shirt, along with custom wording, if needed! Her product line has also recently expanded to include colorful wrist wraps, an essential for all-around Crossfit cuteness (and function)!

I am excited to announce that one of my lucky readers is going to win his or her own item from Fran’s Closet! Be sure to “like” Fran’s Closet RX on Facebook, follow on Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram and enter below!

Adorable designs! I really like the Wonder Under Woman shirt.

Lara ZP January 29, 2014 at 9:27 am

The barbell love off the shoulder sweatshirt, in purple…it’s so cute!

Beki January 29, 2014 at 10:41 am

I love the off the shoulder sweatshirt! And I didn’t know you came up with the “I don’t twerk, I jerk”! Brilliant!! I have a hoodie that says “for a good time call FRAN 21-15-9” which I have worn nearly every day for too long.

I love to WOD with shirts with sayings. I have one that says “I clean, I jerk & I have a nice snatch” haha. Crossfit humor is awesome. 🙂

My favorite item is her Wonder Woman double under shirt, which I own and LOVE, but I love the sweatshirts, too, they look so comfortable!!

sue January 29, 2014 at 10:47 am

I have ordered the sweatshirt and can’t wait for it to arrive. I’ve seen yours and you have expressed how much you like it. I didn’t think I needed one, but all I have is hoodies and the hood gets in the way.

I have been wanting to get the clean & jerk-off the shoulder sweatshirt for some time now. Reading that you wear yours all the time helps me with my decision. Will be ordering it in the near future!

Marijka January 29, 2014 at 12:21 pm

All of the shirts are great. I’m really I need of an off the shoulders sweatshirt.

Claire January 29, 2014 at 12:24 pm

Ha! I would have to say that I prefer to jerk… I took a twerkshop once (oh yes I did) and it was sufficiently awkward. About 1/3 of the girls in my class may have actually been professional strippers, and the autonomy with which they could move their hips was pretty impressive.

Do you prefer to twerk or jerk? – I think I’d dislocate something twerking. Then again, I KNOW I dislocate jerking. I’m just such a loose-y goose-y I am 😉

How would you have captioned the “jerk” tank? “Don’t be one, do one.”

Do you like to WOD in plain shirts or ones with sayings? Mine usually have sayings but they’re usually marathon shirts. I feel a little self-conscious doing a WOD in a Tshirt that says something because I suck so badly. I do have them, though. I’m waiting. 😉

Have you ever worn an article of clothing everyday for a month? Close… love my “WOD Angels” sweatshirt – 🙂 Tres comfy! 🙂
