The Perfect Jean Solution Giveaway!

Hey girls! If you're anything like me you love tucking your jeans into cute boots to get through this cold season. And of course you love your favorite pair of skinny jeans, but what about all your old boot cut and flare jeans that make your butt look fabulous but give you a full time job to pair with boots? I have found your solution! Jean Straps.

Tni Newhoff and Erin Tocalino have produced the solution to every fashionista's fret. Without having to peruse your mother's closet for her old 80s stir-up jeans you can buy your own Jean Straps and fit any of your jeans into place securely to pull those amazing boots over. The Jean Straps connect with a classic garter clasp for verstility on the many lengths and fabrics in your closet. And with Over the Knee boots in full trend swing right now, it is the perfect time to offer a GIVEAWAY for this huge fashion battle!

1. Where did the idea for Jean Straps come about?
My friend and business partner Tni and I had both just bought some fabulous new boots last year. While we were at a concert with our husbands, we started to discuss how much trouble we'd had getting the boots to play well with all of our jeans. Bunching knees, hard to pull on, riding up as the day went on -- all the problems that can arise . We both remembered wearing stirrup pants back in the eighties, but figured there was a more flexible -- and fashionable --solution. Basically, we wanted the convenience without having to revisit that chapter of our fashion history.

2. How did you get to where you are today?
We started developing prototypes soon after the show, which took place in November 2008. We went through probably 10-15 different iterations until we settled on the slim garter clips that you find on Jean Straps today. For us, they struck a perfect balance between being slim and low-profile enough to fit comfortably underneath even the snuggest boots and secure enough to hold jeans for a full day's (or evening's) activities.

3. What does the future hold?
We've gotten a ton of great feedback from our customers, and we listen closely to all of it. One of our guiding principles while we were developing Jean Straps was to keep the final product simple and easy to use. That's why we chose to not make them adjustable, instead choosing a length that worked with a wide variety of jean lengths. If a pair of jeans are a little longer, a simple cuff of 1" increments makes our "non-adjustable" Jean Straps infinitely adjustable!

Certainly, you'll see some fresh new styles from us in the new year. We hope to continue refining Jean Straps to ensure they're the most flexible, convenient solution to a perfect fit, every day.

4. If you could have any super power what would it be?
My super power would be the ability to be in multiple places at one time!

Hey, that's a pretty good idea. I hate trying to stuff my jeans into my boots. They get all bunched up around the top of the boots, it drives me nuts.

I was wondering if they are comfortable or do you feel it around your heel like stirrup pants?
