Talbots Contest: Enter To Win A $50 Talbots Gift Card And Pair Of Jeans From Their New Denim Collection

Are you ready for another contest? Me too! This one is from Talbots, who are promoting the launch of their new denim collection. Three lucky winners will each receive a $50 Talbots Gift Card and one free pair of jeans of their choice. :)

As I'm sure many of you already know, Talbots has released a new denim collection, which includes numerous fits, styles, lengths, and washes...offering something for everyone. A few of my picks are the Heritage Fit Straight Leg Jeans in Black Rinse, the Signature Fit Slim-Leg Ankle Jeans in Midnight Wash, the Signature Fit Premium Denim Bootcut Jeans in Twilight Resin, and the Five-Pocket Boyfriend Jeans in Desert Wash. (You can find out more about the fits and washes on the Talbots website or from an SA in your Talbots store.)

The lovely people at Talbots are very excited about the new line and are sure you are going to love their jeans. They're evening running a special Denim Event for a limited time to encourage you to give the jeans a try:

*In-store: if you try on any pair of jeans or pants in the store, you receive a $5 savings card which can be used towards any purchase. (This offer is good until 9.22.10.) If you buy a pair of jeans now through 9.8.10, you receive a $10 savings card which is redeemable through 9.22.10.
*Online and through the catalog: receive $10 savings on your purchase of denim jeans now through 11:59 EST on 9.22.10 (prices online reflect the discount). Plus you receive Free standard shipping on purchases of full-priced pants valid on Red Phone, catalog and Internet orders shipped via standard delivery (3-6 business days on in-stock items) to one shipping address within the USA or Canada (Red Phone available during regular business hours in U.S. Stores only).

I want to first say thanks to Talbots and the lovely ladies at Red Chair Confessions for sending me 2 pair of jeans, and for selecting me as one of 5 bloggers to hold the contest. I'm pleased and honored to be part of the group. :)

Now for the Contest Details:

The contest will run until 9.15.10. I will then select 3 winners from the Fabulous Florida Mommy reader submissions to each win a $50 Talbots gift card and free pair of jeans. I'll announce the winners here on 9.16.10 or shortly thereafter. After that, the winners will be showcased on the official Talbots blog Red Chair Confessions, along with the winners from the other four blogs, for a total of 15 entries. Each entry will have a voting widget, and site visitors will get to vote for the entry they like best. (Talbots will let me know when this happens so that I can notify the Fabulous Florida Mommy winners to rally their fans to vote on their denim style, and a chance to win an even bigger shopping spree.)

There are several ways to enter the contest:

1) Submit a picture of yourself styled in your favorite pair of jeans along with a note about what makes those jeans the ace in your closet, and send it to me at

2) Blog about how you would style an outfit around your favorite pair of jeans. Feel free to be creative! You can even add a picture, video, or Polyvore set to your entry...just make sure to post the link on the comments of this post.

3) Leave your story in the comment section here on this post. (Feel free to create a Polyvore set with this option and include the link along with your story).

The contest is limited to the U.S. and Canada, and will end at 3pm EST on 9.15.10. I will then select  the 3 winners and announce them here on 9.16.10. The gift card and jeans will be mailed directly to you from Talbots.

Soon after this contest ends the 3 winners will be showcased on the Red Chair Confessions blog for a chance to win an even bigger shopping spree!

Feel free to email me if you have any questions:

Have fun and good luck! I can't wait to hear your stories! :)



  1. Congrats to Talbots for reaching out to the blogosphere! Must put together a story and PV!

  2. I'm using the same 6-word story as my entry on

    Beaujolais Nouveau. Old jeans. New shoes.

  3. Hi! Well I've been head over heels with these lands end ultrafit jeans, they have the perfect amount of stretch to be flattering, deep color and timeless boot cut shape. This is polyvore is how I love wearing them (the scarf is tied around the bag of the tote bag and is actually from Talbots)

  4. Ahhh, the 80’s the time of MTV, bad hair - think wings stiff with Aqua net, and when blue eyeshadow was all the rage. And of course, the much coveted Calvin Klein jeans that Brooke Sheilds made famous. Out of sheer insanity, I was determined to own a pair. I must have baby sat every child in a 2 mile radius. Diapers - no problem. Sesame street telethons - no problem. As I rode to each job on my bike with the purple bannna seat, I could feel each push of the pedal propelling me to my dream. Finally, after two months I had enough money for my ultimate dream. My mother drove me to the department store and I proudly paid for my Calvins. I took them home and marveled at the deep blue denim that softy hugged my body. I wore those jeans so many times that they eventually started to fade and fray and still I could not bear to put put them to rest. As I think back, Brooke Sheilds had it right - nothing came between me and my Calvins!

  5. I wrote an entry for this contest.


  6. Because I am a former corporate type turned graduate student, I can pretty much wear denim daily, but I still like to look polished. My favorite "denim look" is a skinny jean, with a flowy top, and a great heel. (I'm petite so I need all the height help I can get!) I like to add a few great bracelets, a fun necklace, or a cute, yet sophisticated, headband for a little something extra.

    Here is an example:

    Thanks again FFM for offering such a fun contest!
