The following is not a sponsored post. I received no compensation, other than a Foxcroft blouse as a gift for attending the BOOMBOX Network Social Soiree. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
A few weeks ago I was invited by BOOMBOX Network to a cocktail party for Foxcroft, the women’s apparel company. This year, they are celebrating 25 years of “effortless style”.
I looked forward to learning more about their line of clothing designed with the feminine figure in mind, with fabrics and designs I always count on for a casual yet polished look. Timeless, classic and comfortable.
After arriving at the party and getting settled in with hugs from friends and introductions to other attendees (and, of course, eating a few hors d’oevres since I was starving!) I was pleasantly surprised to learn Foxcroft also carries a men’s line. Their display enticed me to look around and touch all of the soft fabrics.
After entering the larger and more crowded back room, I had some time to catch up with old friends and make new acquaintances. It was a lot of fun.
When it was time to quiet down and learn what was new at Foxcroft, we heard about their newest arrivals, and the fabulous no-iron line they offer.
No-iron? Music to my ears. I hate to iron (just ask my husband), and doing so is fatiguing for someone with a disability. Standing for long periods of time is difficult, so ironing is the last thing on my “to do” list.
How many times has my poor husband tried to (ahem) iron his own shirt? He doesn’t love to do it (at all) but does it when he has to because he knows it makes my life easier.
No-iron? That’s a dream come true.
I purchased “no-iron” clothing before, and ended up being disappointed with the product. After hearing about Foxcroft’s I was cautiously optimistic.
We were then invited to try on a sample no-iron blouse. As an added bonus for attending the party, we would be receiving a Foxcroft no-iron blouse (in our choice of long or 3/4 sleeve, with an array of colors to choose from.)
I was thrilled.
Before the party ended, we were treated to a goody bag filled with items from the marvelous sponsors of the party.
Plus my own private hug from friend Audrey Van Petegem of BOOMBOX Network.
I couldn’t wait to receive my new shirt and try it on. Finally, the day came when my box arrived at the front door. Hallelujah!
The purple color of the blouse was vibrant, and the soft texture made it f-e-e-l good to wear.
Don’t you love the feel of premium cotton? PLUS, there was not one wrinkle in the blouse after being shipped.
Here I am wearing it two ways. Tell me which way you prefer.
Open as a jacket,
or closed as a blouse.
I love my new blouse and how easy it will be to keep it looking crisp and fresh every time I wear it.
Ordering Foxcroft apparel is easy to purchase online by going to the Foxcroft website.
What do you think of the new no-iron apparel? Will it make your life easier?
Thank you to BOOMBOX Network and especially to the ever-fabulous hostess of the night, Audrey Van Petegem. I want to also thank Foxcroft, and the sponsors for this fun event:
