GIVEAWAY [ENDED]: Win a Fitness Bra and Leggings from Ellie

***This giveaway has ended. The lucky winner was chosen via and has been notified. Thanks to everyone who entered!***

Spring is almost here and before you know it, it'll be summer! Time to work out outdoors. There's nothing like a new sports bra and pair of running/yoga pants to inspire you. Today I'm very pleased to announce a great giveaway, courtesy of Ellie, a new brand of fitness apparel.

Ellie offers high-quality, super-stylish clothing at half the cost of comparable athletic brands. I can personally attest that the fabric and craftsmanship are excellent, and I love that the clothes aren't made in sweatshops in export processing zones, but in the USA. Plus, the designs are truly fashionable.

Today, I'll be giving away the Under Your Spell Sports Bra in Small, and the Love Struck Leggings in Small. (Small sizing is standard US 4-6. Small measurements for the bra: 34" bust. Small measurements for the leggings: 26.5" waist and 37" hips. I would say these pieces run closer to US size 6 since the fabric stretches well.)

About Ellie

The company sells its own line of fitness apparel, ranging from XS - L sizes, exclusively through and offers its clothing two ways:

1) Via subscription to the Fit Fashionista Club.
Each month, Ellie offers 24 new tops and bottoms. If you're a member, you can choose two pieces -- any combo (a top and bottom, two tops, or two bottoms) -- for $49.95 per month. This is a fraction of what you'd pay from other athletic brands, especially if you choose two bottoms which run $50-65 apiece. You need to choose the items before the 7th of the month, or Ellie will ship a "surprise" box to you based on your preferences (size, color, length of pant, etc.). ** You can skip any month, as long as you change your preferences by the 7th. ** Also, it's FREE SHIPPING for all orders, exchanges, and returns.

2) As a non-member.
Pick and choose the items you'd like from what's available in that month's offerings, just like purchasing from any other online store.

Either way, you can save 20% through the month of March. If you decide to subscribe during the last 10 days of March, you can choose to pre-order from the April collection.

A Note about Petite Sizing

If you've been a regular reader of this blog, you've probably gathered that I am petite sizing. I'm short at 5'1". Ellie unfortunately does not currently offer petite sizes, although they are working on offering both plus and petite sizes as well. If you're petite, I'd recommend that, for the tops, you avoid the form-fitting strappy tanks as the straps aren't adjustable. For the bottoms, the capris and shorter lengths should work for shorter legs.

How to Enter the Giveaway

It's simple. Just go to, check out the March collection (you'll have to create a member sign-in), then leave a comment HERE on this blog post letting me know which item is your absolute favorite. Don't forget to leave an e-mail address in the comment so that I can contact you if you win. Giveaway will close March 25, 11:59 PST. Winner will be chosen randomly and contacted via e-mail. Sorry, giveaway open only to U.S. readers. Good luck!

xo, Gladys
