fab'rik Denim Dinner, SPANX Denim and a Giveaway!

First I want to say "thanks" for hanging in there while I try to figure out how to juggle things now that I've had to go back to work full time!  I'm not ignoring the my readers and my blog are on my mind all the time... but I'm trying to fit in a full time job, the launch of a Stella & Dot business, home, family, styling and blogging so my three-to-four-times-a-week posts have become challenging to get done!  Hopefully it will all get worked out soon and I promise to post as much as I can in the meantime!  Now on to today's post...

One of the best things about being a blogger is getting invited to fun events and reviewing great products and when those two things are combined it's a win win!  Last week I was invited to attend a "Denim Dinner" at fab'rik Suwanee, hosted by both fab'rik Suwanee and fab'rik Mall of Georgia which are owned by friends Kim and Tiffany.  The idea of the Denim Dinner was to get a select group of fashion bloggers together to talk fashion, eat good food, and try out the new denim line by SPANX.  You read that right, our favorite shapewear line now makes denim!!  Right now the line comes in dark wash, black and faux leather.  I've been in the market for a good dark wash pair of jeans so that is what I chose to try on first and immediately loved!!  The jeans are more like jeggings (jean leggings) with the fit and feel of high quality denim combined with SPANX.  They have strategically placed back pockets with faux front pockets and fly and a medium/high rise.  Stay on the lookout for them to make an appearance on the blog in the coming days (as soon as I have a chance to shoot some pics in them!) I've worn them, oh, about 4 times since the dinner!  They are super comfy and extremely stylish.

And now for some good news for you... fab'rik wants to give one of my followers a pair of SPANX denim too!!  And more good news... fab'rik also wants to give all of you a 20% discount on your purchase at their Mall of Georgia and Suwanee locations for the month of October!  What do you have to do?  To win the SPANX denim you must follow me on Instagram (@mzsavvystyle) along with fab'rik Mall of Georgia (@fabrikmallofga) and fab'rik Suwanee (@fabriksuwanee).  Then you must repost the giveaway pic I've posted on Instagram, tag two friends, tag @fab'riksuwanee and @fabrikmallofga and use the hashtags #giveaway #fabrikdenimdinner and #mzsavvystylelovesSPANX.  The winner will be announced October 31st on my Instagram!!  And don't worry if you don't live in Georgia, you can still enter to win and fab'rik will send the jeans to you!  To get the 20% discount all you have to do is mention me (Elizabeth ~ Mz Savvy Style) and my blog at either location between now and October 31st!!  Free jeans and a 20% discount?  It's a win win for you too!

Decisions, decisions... I went with the taupe! ;-)

My pick ~ dark wash SPANX jegging jeans

I love the fabulous outfit on my new friend.  She's wearing the SPANX in faux leather.

First let me say that when this was taken I had been up since 4:15am and it was about 9:00pm at this point, hence the bags under my eyes, faded makeup and bad bangs!  Now for What I'm Wearing ~
Tweed cropped jacket: Entourage Athens (old) / (Similar)
Faux leather leggings: Target (old) / (Identical)
Snake skin pointy toe pumps: Ellen Tracy (old) / These are gorgeous!
