Today’s giveaway is a fun one. If you haven’t heard of Carbon38, you should change that. The brand sells high quality, fashion-forward workout gear from around the globe and has been featured absolutely everywhere… most recently, in the New York Times. They believe that activewear is the new denim and are all about getting women motivated to look chic to sweat (or not!)
I personally love this philosophy. I am so much more motivated to hit the gym when I have cute clothes to work out in and recently splurged on a few things from them to reward myself for all of the hard work I’ve been putting in recently. And up until now my splurge go-to was Lululemon but that seems a bit boring now that I’ve found Carbon38.
I always love hearing the story behind the brand and thought that this one is kind of cool. The founders are Katie Warner Johnson and Caroline Gogolak. Both started out as professional ballet dancers and reconnected at Harvard before moving to NY to pursue careers in finance. And both have (insanely) impressive backgrounds. Prior to working in finance, Caroline also did business development for Intermix + YSL and she’s a certified yoga instructor. Katie is a celebrity trainer (her clients include Emmy Rossum, Erin Andrews and Demi Moore) and teaches at Physique 57. I’d say they possess the perfect background of fashion, fitness, and finance and that some pretty big things are in store for them.
But anyway… back to the clothes! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite pieces above and if you use promo code 38SEQUINS, you can take 20% off your order. On top of that, Katie + Caroline have graciously offered to give one lucky S&S reader a $100 gift card + Carbon38 backpack! Just use the widget below to enter.
