Weekend giveaway: a-thread

Today’s weekend giveaway comes from Simple Mom sponsor a-thread. Based in L.A., a-thread is an online boutique that’s all about giving back – their motto is, “Look good, do good.” Find out more about a-thread, in their own words:

a-thread is a new boutique that just celebrated its six month anniversary, and we aim to provide women everywhere with classic, affordable, and trend-inspired fashion! We carry everything, from dresses, tops, bottoms, accessories, and gifts.

We’ve been called the “quirky-preppy” brand, and we focus on wearable styles that have a unique twist, whether it’s in a pop of color, fun texture, or pattern.

a-thread is also about more than just fashion – we believe in giving back. As a part of our Shop & Effect program, we donate 5% of our sales to our charity partners. Current partners include Kiva, Thirst Relief, Children of the Night, and Los Angeles Animal Services.
