I rarely do giveaways, mainly because I’m greedy and want all the stuff for myself. But I’m making an exception for you, dear reader, so please consider sending me things too (I like oreos, milkshakes and lipgloss mainly.)
Last month, I was invited to take a sneak peek of the latest Mondor threads while trying a ballet class at the L’ecole Superieure De Ballet Du Quebec here in Montreal. I have never taken a ballet class before so I was intrigued* and excited.**
Mondor gifted each of the students with a pair of tights and a sweatshirt in advance so we would arrive in costume and ready to get our twirl on. I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t include a tutu in the package because tutus are so pretty and also provide great ass coverage. But then I threw on the tights and hoodie AND WAS MAGICALLY TRANSFORMED INTO A DANCER. No shit.
The tights are designed to move with you and are made to withstand the tireless moves of professional dancers or even if you need to make a mad dash to the bathroom because you ate too many Oreos the night before (WHEEE!!)
And the drawstring hoodie is 98 kinds of awesome! Designed and made right here in Canada, this company knows how to flatter and shape a woman perfectly. If anyone ever asks, just know that side rushing is sexy! There were probably a dozen women in our class and everybody just seemed to instinctively know how much rushing suited them.
As for the class, I adored it! I was promised that I would feel it the next day, and I did but in a way that way that leaves you feeling strong and muscular rather than ambulatory or um, dead. I had never tried most of these moves before and without looking in the mirror (because why mess with reality) I just knew I had somehow mastered them. I liked the Chorus Line vibe of the class so much I plan to go back in the fall and take lessons regularly. And now I want you to this feel fine too.
Which leads to the GIVEAWAY! Mondor would like to gift one of you with a hoodie too! It comes in heather grey or black so the lucky winner can pick their preference. Open to anyone who wears hoodies or knows someone who wears hoodies.
