When we were younger (while I was in graduate school), we shopped at Aéropostale all the time. We love the causal look their clothes offers and being on a tight budget, we thought that the prices were very reasonable. After graduate school, both DH and I were working and we had to dress professionally, so we did not get any many chances to shop there like we used to. Now, we are rediscovering Aéropostale. One the the things I still love about Aéropostale is its casual look. I especially love their back to basics collection. Being a video game designer, DH can dress very causally to work. Since we live in Southern California, it means that he gets to wear shorts and t-shirts to work everyday all year long -- I know, how lucky is he! I, on the other hand, am a stay at home mom. I don't need professional looking clothes. What I need the most is causal comfortable clothes so that I can easily run after the kids in the park and play with them in the sandbox.
Thanks to Aéropostale, we have reacquainted with the company and the great products it offers. The company sent us a big box of products for DH and me to review.
I received a pair of chic, modern sunglasses, an adorable tote bag, 2 bottle of perfumes and a navy blue light weight scarf. DH received a button down shirt, one polo shirt, 2 t-shirts, 1 hat and 1 pair of shorts to review. DH, being 6'5" tall, has a hard time finding pants, shorts and jeans the right length. I did not realize that Aéropostale has his size. The shorts fitted him really well, so I will be buying more for DH. The t-shirts were really soft and comfortable to wear. The button down shirt looks great on DH, I think it is a great addition to his wardrobe. Personally, I love my tote bag. It is yellow (just the right color for summer) and so roomy too. The perfumes smell really great. They are light with wonderful scents-- not at all overwhelming. With the products we received from Aéropostale to review, I felt like we are totally ready for the summer ^_^.
