What did I win, you ask? How about a pair of Lee Slender Secret jeans from Leanne Wildermuth's Intricate Art blog? I really needed a new pair of jeans, so the timing of this win couldn't be more perfect. The only thing wrong with this win was that I had to tell Leanne what size/color I needed... and I usually try on several sizes in jeans to walk away with a pair I love. So this was a big leap of faith. Well, my luck prevailed, and they fit TERRIFIC. I love these jeans! They have a lil bit of lycra in them - I adore lycra in jeans. I hate regular ole stiff jeans these days; the lycra gives just enough stretch to be comfortable, but not to be clingy. Ladies, give these jeans a try, I guarantee you will love them! Here's a link to Leanne's original giveaway, with a photo of her wearing the jeans - as Leanne says, the denim is uber-awesome. (Sorry, all my regular blog readers - no pics of me wearing these lovely jeans!)
But first and foremost, Leanne is a pet portrait artist, and her portraits are beautiful. Check out her blog and enter her weekly graphite portrait giveaways. And keep an eye out for more Lee jean giveaways.
Leanne has been chosen as a Lee Fit Ambassador - she loves being able to give Lee Jeans away to her readers (and we love winning them!). The countdown is on to Denim Day, October 2, when thousands of people across the U.S. will be getting out their jeans and donating $5 in support of this day and breast cancer research. Leanne is honored to be part of such a meaningful cause. She lost her own sister-in-law to several years ago, so her participation as a team leader is a very personal one. Join her team as a contributor. Donate $5 and wear your jeans (even if they aren't Lee!) . Leanne's goal is to reach 100 people by October 2nd. Even with on board, we can’t do this alone!
Please go to Lee's National Denim Day website to join her team and donate. Her team's goal is $500. As of today, September 24, they have $470 to go. Let's all pitch in and help them reach this goal! Thanks everyone!
And a big thank you to Leanne for my new favorite pair of Lee jeans!
