Wino Wednesday: What's Your Ista Review & Giveaway


Welcome back to Wino Wednesday with me and Aubrey! Grab the Button and Link-up your wine-related post!
I love showing off my love of wine & I love T-shirts. So I was looking around online and discovered this fun site where you could order T-shirts to show off your personality! I got in touch with the owners about a review/giveaway and, Voila!
This is my Wine-ista T-shirt!

I love this shirt. It's become a weekend staple. During the cold weather I layer it over a long sleeve shirt or just wear it lounging around the house. I was actually wearing it when Jason proposed last month!
I love the material, it's a lot softer than most T-shirts, and they are pretty true to size. I tend to order up online (after purchasing several snug fitting tops) and this shirt is actually really loose. I could have stuck with my normal size.
The founders of "What's your Ista?"
Marlee is a school guidance counselor and a designer, who wants to save the world and make it more beautiful at the same time (peaceista). Amy is a special education teacher, who is a self-described word nerd (wordista or nerdista?) who loves the idea of creating new words with a clever sounding suffix. Between us, we have 5 children to put through college, I mean, who we are raising. Marlee and Amy have been friends since they met in the "transfer student" line at Clemson University in 1986. 
Our kids are tennisista, zombieista, spikeista, artista, and pizza-ista (which is just fun to say—try it).

How It All Started
Dig if you will this picture, over a glass or 2 of the house merlot, we lamented the current state of the economy and our husbands' job prospects. Someone said something like “Forget fashionista, I’m a recessionista.” Next thing you know, we are all throwing out other ista ideas. We got to thinking that it would be fun to create Ista T-shirts. 
Part of our mission is to be generous with others.  We know that many organizations have been suffering from a lack of donations. We know that passionate people like our customers will have their own pet charities.  We want our customers to suggest charities and we will donate a portion of our profits.
