LTDchix.com Living The Dream: Apparel For Mom's Like You Review & Giveaway




The powerhouse duo that head the fab Mom apparel company called  LTDchix.com are Nina Frye, former account executive, and Cindi Schmitzer, former CPA and corporate financial analyst. These gals traded in everyday jobs to pursue the challenges of raising children, and found a fun and dedicated way to celebrate the joys and humor of Motherhood by founding LTDchix.com , recently honored as a winner for 2009 in Leading Moms of Business. Here's how they came upon this great business concept:



"Back in the days when being a Mom was still just a dream for many of us, little did we know about the true realities of motherhood.  We didn’t know that along with the beauty and rewards of watching our children grow, we’d also have to contend with the daily mind-numbing tasks that go along with it!  But we’ve got to keep on smiling and persevere!
And that's why we created LTDchix.com. Here's how it all began...
In the summer of 2005, our two families were spending the day together at the beach.  Late that afternoon, as we wrestled to get seven rambunctious kids back into the truck, we both sat back and laughed at the insanity of it all.  Kids were fighting, sand was all over the place, wet bathing suits were soaking into the seats, someone had lost a flip-flop and two boogie boards were sticking out the back window.  We had to laugh…instead of pounding our foreheads into the car until we passed out. 
What had happened to that idyllic dream of being the perfect mom with the perfect kids and the perfect life? 
We came to a few conclusions that day. First: this was it.  We were Living the Dream.  Being a Mom really is tough sometimes, we’re faced fairly often with some pretty insane and chaotic situations, and WE LOVE IT!  We wouldn’t trade it for the world! 
On the way home that night, we started talking about how we got to this point in our lives.  Why hadn't anyone told us?  Did we ever truly understand when we were younger just how much time we’d spend every day doing laundry, carting our kids to activities, cooking, house cleaning and countless other chores in and out of the home? 
Back when we were sitting at our orderly desks in our organized workplaces, balancing budgets and spending our paychecks on business suits and happy hour, we had no clue what was in store when we traded in 9-to-5 for 24/7.  We decided then and there that we should come up with a line of T-shirts that relate to all the moms out there – shirts that really express what we all experience on a daily basis. 
Whether you’re balancing the full-time jobs of work and home or you’re holding the line on the home front all day – or somewhere in between – we can all relate to the trials and joys of being a Mom.
So we got busy and hired an illustrator, Steven Anderson from Appleton, Wis., who helped us bring our vision to life.  We came up with our slightly sarcastic theme – "Living The Dream" and then created our signature Mom, who is shown on our shirts overwhelmed and in various situations, smiling her way through daily life."





According to the
LTDchix.com website, Living The dream T-shirts are fun apparel for busy Moms-on-the-go with a slightly sarcastic sense of humor. Every Mom will be able to personally identify with at least one of the trademark Mom illustrations and captions on LTDchix.com shirts, or at least know a Mom who does.  
Living the Dream apparel is sold in select locations and online directly from the
LTDchix.com website.




 

Thanks to Nina, I received the LTDchix.com Laundry Mom short sleeve T-shirt in the lipstick/light pink color (shown above), which is listed at an affordable $15. The prices for various types of shirts on their website typically range around $10-30, and they often have super sale items at prices too ridiculously low to mention here 【ツ】. The Laundry Mom T- shirt was perfect for me because I love the layered look without the extra bulkiness of actual layers. It fits great and has washed very well, no fading or shrinking at all. To me that is the true test of a quality shirt that I'll have for a long time...what can I say, I love T-shirts--and LTDchix.com has a great variety of colors, various T-shirt styles, and of course--their trademark hilarious designs. I always get at least a dozen compliments on this shirt because anyone who knows me would say that this T-shirt describes my life perfectly, you know, with being a laundress for 9 people and all.





LTDchix.com T-shirts would make an afforable,  fashionable and much appreciated gift for any frazzled, loving Mom that you know.  I was also totally excited to see that LTDchix.com has their very own line of trendy Shopping Mom reusable tote bags  for a low $5! They are available in 4 great colors, and are roomy, sturdy and stylish. I plan on ordering several of these totes and tossing gifts and tissue paper together inside these totes for the coolest gift wrap ever!  Adding eco-friendliness and being ultra-chic, ultra-cute and totally affordable are a few more reasons to check out the Living The Dream line at LTDchix.com.



 Thanks to LTDchix.com. , one Multiple Blessings reader will have a chance to win their very own Laundry Mom short sleeved T-shirt in a choice of the Light Blue loose fit T-shirt, or one of  the sherbert/white or the Lipstick/Light pink fitted T-shirts.
