I've been asked to do a Product Review for
In exchange for my review Michelle,
American Hero Clothing & Accessories,
has provided me with
a long-sleeved t-shirt with a
rhinestone embellishment, to review.
She has also provided a T-shirt w/embellishment
to give away to a lucky Frugal Army Wife fan!
No other compensation has been given for this review.
WINNER WILL BE PICKED TUESDAY!
I received the t-shirt and immediately
I was not only impressed, but somewhat honored,
that Michelle had chosen me to review
the wares of her work.
To know that Michelle had made
the shirt with her own hands made it
all the more special to me.
The picture (above) is the actual
t-shirt that Michelle sent me.
I was a bit concerned because
during shipping (my thought) the
t-shirt's back had adhered to the
t-shirt's front where the rhinestone
So the first time I put the t-shirt on,
to take the picture,
not knowing they were stuck together
I ripped into the shirt and
panicked when it sounded like I may
have compromised the adhesive
on the rhinestones.
I wore the shirt to the nail salon
and while shopping that first day.
Getting compliments and
inquiries from other Army wives
and even several ladies at the nail salon
who weren't even military,
but loved the shirt.
If you are local here at Fort Campbell,
you may have seen me out and about
wearing the t-shirt.
If you didn't, keep your eyes open,
you probably will.
I love it!
I turned the t-shirt inside out and
washed it in cold water on the
"normal" cycle in our washer
(top loader with no agitator standing up,
just the shallow agitator that is much gentler with clothing)
and it came through the wash without
a single problem.
Remember, I was concerned with the
adhesive backing on the rhinestones.
I would suggest if you are concerned that
you use the gentle cycle if
you have a front loading machine or
a top loading machine with an agitator.
I then dried the t-shirt, still inside out,
and it fared just as well in the dryer.
I was sure happy to see I hadn't damaged
the rhinestones in my haste to wear it
and show it off!
I love the quality of the t-shirt,
along with the outstanding quality of the
rhinestone embellishment and
I have no doubt this will not be my only
American Hero Clothing & Accessories
shirt, or accessory, I'll own!
I think I feel a cap and short sleeve t-shirt
in the near future for me.
