Rock City Skirts Review and Giveaway! {Closed}

This Giveaway has closed.  Check our most recent postings for other great giveaways.



Looking to add a little sparkle to your runs?  Of course you are!  This past month I got to add some sparkly-sparkly to my running, via Rock City Skirts.

I discovered the runner-owned and operated Rock City Skirts on twitter.  As a runner, Amy Maust knows what what works and what doesn't.  What caught my eye right away was the new offering for St Patrick's Day runs - that featured three tiers of color - in that case: representing the flag of Ireland.  Many of the skirts have fun, creative names! I also noticed on their website that they will do custom color combinations.  This was too good to resist so I contacted them and requested what else - but the good ole Red, White, and Blue!  In my head, I was calling it Miss USA - because it does put me in mind of something you might see during a beauty pageant talent competition. Well, the name stuck - and the Miss USA skirt was added to the official collection.

Rock City Skirts is a pretty new company (established 2012), but they are making a splash in the running skirt world with their Princess skirts, Superhero skirts, Holiday-themed skirts, Metallic skirts, plus the two and three color combinations.  The design-your-own option is fantastic - as you can put your fave colors together for a uniquely you skirt!

The skirts are extremely lightweight; you don't even notice you are wearing them.  Adult sizing is available for sizes 4 - 20.  One thing in particular I appreciated is that these measure a tiny bit longer than other well-known sparkly running skirts.  If you have a more... ahem ... generous backside like myself, you too will appreciate that extra inch or two of fabric to keep things modest.  I did ask Amy if she would do longer length skirts - as I know there are a few of us out there that like to cover up a bit more.  She said she will offer longer lengths on a custom basis - so be sure to check with her if you have something in mind.  This is good news indeed!

Kids sizing is also available, and while I don't have a little girl myself, in my head I am already planning matching Tinkerbell costumes for my nieces at future runDisney races.

There are no attached shorts; so pair them with coordinating tights or shorts.  This is what I wore for two recent local races.  (Please pardon the silly faces, but you can see I was having a blast in my skirt!) 




The skirt up top is my Miss USA.  The white is on the silvery side - not a pure bright white... in case that matters to you.  This one is made of the sequined poly fabric.

The one below is called Blue By You and is a smooth metallic fabric.  I'd love to get a few more of these in other colors- as the texture is quite silky.  I wore mine to my local Run for Boston event.  It matched my Boston Marathon tank perfectly.

These skirts shipped to me in just a few days, very fast considering I had a custom order.  Care instruction tag is included for your convenience.  I just did a simple hand wash in the sink plus drip dry, and they were good as new.  You can also wash in a mesh lingerie bag on cold water, gentle cycle.  I would still hang it up to dry though.   

Offerings are constantly being updated, so if you don't see the color you want straight away, send them an email inquiry.  I've already put them on notice that I'll be wanting a Black, Gold, and Red for OktoberFest.  Yep. So now you want your very own Rock City Skirt too, right?  

Well, go to the Rafflecopter link below and enter the giveaway.  One lucky winner will receive a solid color (two tier) running skirt.  Check out the website for the current selection.  Contest runs from May 7th - May 14th.  I will announce the winner May 15th.  Can't wait that long?  Gotta have it now?  

I love to support women-owned small businesses, don't you?  Here is the contact info, so you can get your very own Rock City Skirt. Hint: Be sure to check out the Facebook page, as a lot of contests go on there.

I like the "Blue by you" skirt for a solid or the "Miss USA" Running Skirt. I just recently found out I was pregnant and signed up for the famous 4th of July Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, GA. By then I am sure to have a baby bump, so I am looking into something comfortable to wear but also FUN!! :) Would love to win!! :) The elastic waistband is calling my name!!!

OR The JFK ROYAL BLUE RUNNING SKIRT!! :)
