Talbots Review and Gift Card Giveaway!


OK, I'll level with ya. For years, when I heard Talbots, I thought, "stodgy, nautical-themed clothes that aren't my style." But a makeover client sang the praises of the store's plus-sized offerings, we paid a visit, and I completely changed my tune. The store was full of well-made basics, pretty prints, and modern cuts. And that was four years ago! The brand has come a long way since then, even.

I've bought several dresses and a handful of cardigans from Talbots and been delighted with the quality, so when the company approached me to do a review and giveaway, I jumped at the chance. They sent me this darling sundress and, as you can see, I'm completely enamored.


The neckline detail is irresistibly cute, the full skirt makes me deeply happy, and the print is just gorgeous.




I see this dress becoming a summer staple. No doubt.

The best part about this post, though, is not how gleeful this new dress makes me. It's that YOU can enter to win a $250 Talbots gift card from me! Talbots ships internationally, so I'll open this up to everyone. Here's what you've got to do to enter:
  1. Go to the Talbots blog, Red Chair Confessions, and pick out your favorite look

  2. Leave a comment on this post telling us which look is your fave, and also leave A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.

  3. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Monday, July 5. I'll draw a winner at random the following week. This contest is open to U.S. readers only. Good luck, everyone!

I like the look with the green jacket from april 28th.

Oops, forgot my email last time: aburlock@gmail.com

Michelle Obama looks stunning in the red and white dress with the white cardigan. Hopping over to the Talbot's site, I fell in love with the Soutache-trimmed cardigan. Lovely stuff. Talbot's has really changed since the last time I tried to shop there. You're right...no more frumpy.

Nadia in the "Spotted" post on June 16 really looks like she's rocking her personal style.

I've always had the same perception of Talbots as you, but after seeing this adorable dress they sent you I'm ready to check themout!

The green dress from January 14th is amazing. Most everything on the blog is nice but that dress is a showstopper.

I like the April 23rd blue shirtdress - I could wear that so many ways!

I'm a big dress fan, so I pick the rose print dress from March 15. (Actually, I like the one you're wearing better!)

I have been wearing a beautiful black and white print Talbots cardigan in the office--since it is an oven outside the a/c is turned on full blast...

I've also changed my mind about Talbots in the past year or two. I love that they are also one of the few brands to offer petite sizes in the store (important for 5'1" me!).

I love the orange pencil skirt and crisp white shirt that are shown in the April 15 posting.

My fave is Ink 5/25/10. I'm a big fan of shirtdresses and dark colors.

How Does She Do It? said...

I love Natalia's look from June 2. I have some white capris that are similar but have been having a hard time planning an outfit around them. I am going to try to duplicate this look--it's so chic but not like she is trying too hard.

mommara said...

Ooo I love the INK post. I am in love with the dress in the middle. I haven't "looked" at Talbot's in a while I am excited to find them again. Thanks.

I've never actually gone to a Talbots store, but found an adorable summery skirt from there at Goodwill.

Christy Sews said...

Oh how I love Talbots. My favorite look can be found in the 4/18/10 Ink by Sophie. It's the polka dot trench paired with the polka dot top, white pants, red shoes and mustard bag. I love, I love, I love! (and surprising enough, do not have any of them items in my closet). Hmmm.

Deine said...

Incredible Giveaway! I recently lost a total of 80lbs. so I am updating my look with a brand new wardrobe! Someone plase tell me...when did clothes get so darn expensive??! ☺ Expensive or not, I am loving every minute of it!

I love the look of Natalia from June 2, 2010. Really pretty girl and her outfit in black and white is simple and elegant. I love her look because it's one that I could rock now! I also really like Terra's look from April 23, 2010...cool, casual, and fashionable!

Thanks for such an amazing giveaway!

My favorite is the blue skirt w/white top shown here (http://redchairconfessions.com/ink/ink-4/). So crisp and summery.

Great giveaway, Sal! I love it!

My favorite look is Natalia, in the white pants and black top. I dig the casual but still put-together elegance of her outfit!

I love the floral dress with the little butter-colored sweater belted over it from March.

I stalk things in Talbot's, but don't buy that often. I messed up and missed a great, Sarah Palinesque red portrait-collar jacket last winter that I still regret passing on. I have a couple of great interview suits from them in much more conservative colors/styles.

I really love the 'Venice' skirt and white sleeveless blose look on April 27, 2010. The whole look is so clean, fresh and I especially loved the necklaces, shoes and the scarf. But the skirt is what really drew my eye, it really is unique and gorgeous! :)

My email addy vilaipeyton@hotmail.com

I'll have to go with the Venetian conversation print pleated skirt that was featured in Lucky. Michelle Obama looks great too - not my colors but definitely a great silhouette.

Definitely the one from April 28th, BOTH the green and the Polka Dot jacket looks! It might be the shoes, I love the red shoes but am too chicken to employ them!!!!

My favorite look is the little girl in Spotted: NYC: Jayne [and Emilie + Alex]
She is probably, like, 6 or 7 years old and she's already way ahead of me in her little tiered dress and flats. Very cute!

I like Natalia in NYC on June 2 - a fresh, spring outfit yet urban in the black and white colors. Interesting silhouette in the blouse, and balances well.

(and agree with you on talbots, i've had great luck finding well-made and well-cut pants there, among other things).

email: brendamulrich@gmail.com

Anonymous said...

I agree with Rachel - I love the look Nadia is rocking on the 16th of June.
I recently bought some jeans at Talbot's. I wear petite sizes, so it's always a challenge to find great petites. I was VERY surprised by how cute some of their clothes are. I'm definitely going to be shopping at Talbot's in the future.

You look really great in this dress ! One of my favorite look on you ;)

For the red chair blog, the one I prefer is Cynthia (Feb. 11) : elegant and practical. The boots+jeans combo is always a winner in winter.

Bisous de France,

Sal, this sundress is SO CUTE. I am in love.

My fave look from the Talbot's blog is Kendi's on May 25th. The brown belt over the black shirtdress is great -- professional and chic!

I love both shorts looks from May 26. My summer quest seems to be dressy shorts and a good maxi dress, and these looks are exactly how I envision the shorts.

I love the "Daily Confessions" looks on March 22, especially the one on the right (the tweed pencil skirt, lingerie-inspired top, leopard cardi and platform sandals). I want to go buy the whole outfit!

I love the black shirt dress shown on Kendie on May 25--and I would totally wear the wild Venice skirt in the April 28 post!

I've been buying carefully chosen items for work from Talbots for years, but always with a careful eye to avoid the frumpy, matronly looks. They seem to be gone now! This fall's collection is fabulous.

I love the orange pencil skirt, 4/15, and Talbot's is great for the range of sizes - petites that aren't granny, yay!.

I love the orange skirt and white shirt look in the April 15th post. The orange skirt is cool. But Michelle Obama looks really good in the red summery dress too.

I really like Ink on May 25th.

madana said...

I am confused though. Is this open to international readers too? You initially said that, but then stated US readers only.

Favourite... April 27th- Classy and it looks so comfortable. Amazing.

My favorite look is Spotted: Belinda- love her layering!

thank you for such a wonderful opportunity :) I have never shopped at talbots but this would be the time to give them a chance ;D

I didn't check the date, but I love every single look on the Bazaar Return to Elegance post. The hair! The make-up! It's all perfect. Except for the blonde with no spine. That's just strange.

The April 28 post with the checked jacket and the white pants is really fab. The yellow handbag gives such a nice pop of colour!

I really like the "Spotted" post titled Belinda. I like the purple cardigan styled over a slightly ruffly top and then belted with a shiny metallic. Its good outfit inspiration for me for where I live, where layering in any season but summer is a must. I'd probably put my pink cardigan over a ruffly sleeveless top, belt with a metallic belt and wear metallic flats. And for funzies, I'd wear my vintage purple velvet blazer over it.

My goodness, that may become a staple outfit for this fall winter...I'm actually getting excited. And later I could swap the metallic belt and flats for leopard print belt and boots...

Thank you.

I like the white & blue outfit from April 27th - it's one of the very few pictured that I could actually see working on me.

Good to hear they have a good plus-sized line - but neither the blog nor the website show any plus-sized models, so it's hard to tell.

The last (and only) time I shopped at Talbots, I was very impressed by their quality, but very discouraged by their prices. A $250 gift card might get me a shirt or two, though!

Heather Freeman said...

Auuugh, I forgot my email on the previous comment. Can't figure out how to delete or edit it, either. hfreeman at fireseastudios dot com.

(And the look I like is the blue & white one from April 27th.)

EvaNadine said...

i adore the coat Doreen is wearing here:
http://redchairconfessions.com/spotted/spotted-nyc-doreen/

but overall, i think the outfit Natalia is wearing
(http://redchairconfessions.com/spotted/spotted-nyc-natalia/)
is comfy, cool, and laid-back. the sandals are cute, and i love how she rolled up the pants!

Alecia said...

clapping my hands over the news that linda evangelista will be in their fall ads- she is amazing!!

love the march 2010 look of the lambskin jacket and ruffled blouse and the post below with the black and red and animal print in the store window

like the quality of their clothes and the classic and ladylike style is defintely more "current" than they were in the past. I adore their pencil skirts

Margaret said...

I like the middle outfit of April 13th. Love the jacket!

Kris, Colie, & Ronan said...

Wow... Talbot's is revamped! I have to agree with so many of the posts- Michelle Obama in the red and white dress -- so beautiful! I love it!
~~ although the fun, daring side of me- is in love with the Chic Bohemian Shirt as well!
thanks for the chance...

The sonata stripe dress in the post from the 28th is super cute! I love the flared skirt and the blue stripes! The woven belt ties the nautical feel together without being over the top.

Liked the March 25th with leather jacket. I am impressed by the quality and construction of the few Talbots pieces I've been able to afford, and would love to be able to shop there with abandon!

I like Michelle Obamas look - love the white sweater I need one of those!

I love the post from April 23 - the blue shirtdress with the long trench! Oh how I wish I could pull off the shirtdress.
