French Toast Review and Giveaway!

I cant belive that school is here! I have some readers that are starting as early as next week! Wow! So to celebrate the school year we are going to have a fantastic giveaway!

Several moms and I were talking about the durability of the uniforms we had all purchased and giving eachother tips on what to consider and what to stay away from. Since we live in a small town we have very limited options so online shopping is a pretty great oportunity to find things that we dont have in our stores!
French Toast is the brand that really got my attention when purchasing this year's school uniforms. They have so much to choose from and thier site has some GREAT tools to use!

French Toast very generously sent me 3 great items to review with Captian:

I love that these are a little more casual than the regular slacks that we nomally buy. The material feels sturdy but not to "stiff" as Captian says. With boys the knees are always at rish in pants! Captian is not hard on his clothes but I cant wait to see how they hold up through out the year! Captian's favorite part is that they have the cargo pockets because they are like "normal clothes" and the belt that comes with them! He has already decided that he would like to weat it with all of his pants... ;)

I chose the long sleve polo because they are very hard to come by around here. This top is heavy weight but soft. It will be perfect for when it cools off. I was super suprised to see all of the color options that Franch Toast has! If your child doesnt have to wear uniforms, their clothes are still great options for school and for church!

I picked this out because the students can not wear any outerwear inside the building. No hoodies, no coats, no jackets. They CAN wear sweaters as long as they are a solid school color with not logos on them. Needless to say, it is hard to find something for a boy that is plain and not girlish. French Toast to care of us! This sweater is perfect! Is is ligh weigh but warm so he can wear it in class and it wont bother him or take up to much space in his backpack or locker if he needs to take it off!

Over all I am VERY happy with the products provided by French Toast. The prices are cheaper than our malls prices so I was very happy about that, plus you dont have to beat the crowd because you can take care of everything on line!

Here are a couple of other items that I found that I really liked!
This velcro belt is so great for the kiddos that can work a regular belt!
 I love how it looks like a regulare belt!

How precious is this Canvas Safari Shirtdress? I think that Sissy would love it!

As if finding a great site to purchase school uniforms at a good price with out leaving the house wasnt enough... they would like to give one Mommy Minded reader a chace to win 2 tops and a pair of pants!
Giveaway will end on 8/31/2011 at 11:59 PM EST.
Winner will be notified via email and given 48 hours to respond.

I recieved the pants, top, and sweater mentioned above at no cost for me to review. No monetary compensation was recied. All opinions are my own and your may differ.
