Catherines Denim Debunked Challenge

2013-09-06 19.25.06

 

What could be better than an invite to test drive jeans? I was very excited when Catherines and ALL YOU Magazine invited me to participate in their Denim Debunked blogger challenge.  Full disclosure: I was provided a $100 gift card to Catherines along with an issue of ALL YOU in exchange for a shopping experience, product reviews and as a part of a contest for the chance to win a $500 gift card to Catherines.

I live about a 20-minute drive from two different Catherines locations in Atlanta, but I hadn’t been to either one in years. I’m spoiled by living within about 5 minutes of a major shopping area, so I rarely go far for clothes. Also, I’ve never been a big Catherines fan. They have a distinctive style, with lots of long tunic tops. However, I have friends who love this style and lament that they don’t have a Catherines nearby.

When I saw the New Direction of Denim campaign, I knew that I was overdue to give Catherines a try.

I went to the Catherines in Austell, GA, at the corner of East-West Connector and Austell Rd. (Click here for map to location. For those not in driving distance of a Catherines, all items pictured here are available at Catherines.com. Links in the post will take you as close I could get to the actual items online.)

The New Direction of Denim campaign is in full swing until September 15th, 2013, and the store had a large array of denim styles to choose from in sizes 16W-34W.  A very helpful store associate, Audrey, greeted me at the door and helped me load up a dressing room with different jean styles and tops to match (gotta try on the whole outfit or why even bother?).

I decided to try three different denim styles: the Knit Jean, the Right Fit Jean, the Slimmer Synergy Modern Bootcut Jean.
