Fashionable History: Who's That Behind Those Foster Grants? Give Away!!

If you read my earlier Fashionable History post on sunglasses you already know that Foster Grant is one of the oldest brands of mass produced sunglasses in America. Still in business they are still making very affordable shades for under $30!! Not only are they affordable but they are also extremely sturdy, fashionable, and well made. I should know, Foster Grant sent me a few pairs to test drive and I am amazed at how fabulous they actually are. Good news for you, in this post I am going to be giving away a pair to TWO winners! But first some more fashionable history...
Who's That Behind Those Foster Grants? That is the question the company has been asking for decades now. The answer has included several starlets, actors, directors, and models. I thought it would be fun to share some of those ads. Raquel Welch, who is still involved with promoting Foster Grant is pictured above. Check out her tattoo!
The glamorous Carroll Baker.

Elke Sommer. Umm how cute are those white ones?



And Cindy Crawford.
Now it's your turn to be the one that's behind THESE Foster Grants! If you are feeling creative you can also enter in the Foster Grant Facebook video contest showing yourself behind your Foster Grants with your prize from this give-away! The prize from that contest is a big trip for two! So break out that video camera!
Here's how to enter my give away:
*For one entry leave a comment on this post stating which pair of Foster Grants you would like. Either the classic aviator "Guy" or the classic "Reinvent".
All entries will be divided into two groups and one winner will be chosen from each. The winner will receive the glasses they chose, so don't put "either one" or " I like them both" as your entry. You must decide!
*For a second entry tweet a link to this post on Twitter and put a link to your tweet in a new post below. Your second entry will be put in the original sunglass group you chose. That gives you two chances to win the pair you want! It would also be sweet if you followed me on twitter @BobbinBombshell and Foster Grant @FosterGrant1929.




"Guy"


"Reinvent"
*This contest will close on Wednesday July 28th at midnight NYC time. The winner will be announced on Thursday July 29th. Be sure to check back in to see if you won so you can contact me with your mailing info!
Good Luck!

Didn't Raquel just do another ad for Foster Grant recently? Not sunglasses, I think it was for readers or bifocals or something. I thought it was great!
I love the Guy glasses, very cool.

Love the "guy"! Too cute!

SaraGardens said...

Oh, my goodness, although my dear father Simon was definitely "the guy" - I am a 'reinvent' kind of gal! You are an inspiration - I go into these phases when I get defashionated, and you always bring my back ;) xox

Wow, i was not aware of this brand maybe because I was not born and raised in the States but I have to say I really like them. I should keep an eye on those...

As much as I reinvent myself, I'm ultimately a "guy" gal!

Thanks for the chance to enter! I really like the Reinvent glasses. (And somehow, I don't actually own any sunglasses right now...this ought to be remedied!)
