Editors Pick: Annie & Isabel -- Plus a giveaway!

You pick out what to wear to a party. You pick out what to wear to the gym. You pick out what to wear everywhere. Why not be prepared? We have the perfect option for you when you head to the hospital. Yes, the hospital! 


Of course no one wants to think of themselves in the hospital but if you are anything like us, we like to be prepared with Annie & Isabel. Just a few months ago, you may remember reading about me in the hospital. Well luckily I was prepared! I had my Anita gown with me! Yes, I know. Who thinks to grab something to wear during their hospital stay? Well, ME! (I was the one in labor checking my make-up the whole time!) I can't stand those yucky, crunchy hospital gowns. Not to mention, I hate the contast feeling that I am showing people things I shouldn't be! 




As I sat in the hospital room I felt stylish & chic even though my hair was matted to the bed and I hadn't showered in days - my Anita gown was there by my side! I got stopped as I was wheeled to have an MRI - just because of my super-cute hospital wardrobe! Right before my operation, the nurse and I were talking all about my gown. What a conversation starter! Now, I am expecting #4 and I am so excited! Honestly, because I have a reason to wear it again! It is super-soft and comortable and I am confident I an not showing anyone my rump - yes, full back coverage! It is very important! 

Oh, and did I mention? They have pockets. The perfect place for lip gloss! And of course, it has all the hospital needs of a hospital gown. The gowns wrap and tie on the side for full back coverage. The shoulder straps also provide easy access for IV lines and those newly nursing mommas!

I also adore the inverted pleat in front  and beautiful grosgrain ribbon- it adds just the right amount of detail to make the gown even more perfect! Well guess what? We are giving you one! Well, the FABulous ladies at Annue & Isbael are! Read on to win now! It is perfect for every fashionista! 






Editor Note: I have to say, not only are the gowns amazing and the must-have essential for everyone but the ladies behind the gowns are even more amazing! They are genuine, down-to-earth gals and love to put a smile on your face! They do just that with their gowns! 

MORE about the ladies & the name:

We are sisters and registered nurses. Anna works in an Emergency Department and Selena works in an adult Intensive Care Unit. Our many years of working as nurses have made it clear to us that wearing a generic hospital gown is often a patient's number one complaint. We saw an opportunity, with our business, to improve the patient experience by designing gowns that are attractive, comfortable, and, most importantly, completely cover your "backside" : When you look good, you feel better.

The name "Annie and Isabel" honors our great-grandmother, Annie, and our grandmother, Isabel. We were so blessed to have our great-grandmother in our lives. Annie was a selfless, spirited woman and role model to many generations in our family as she lived to the age of ninety-eight. Our grandmother, Isabel, was a beautiful and loving woman who died of pancreatic cancer when we were young. She is the reason that we are both nurses today. Our childish dreams included the wish of naming our future daughters after these women who were so dear to our hearts. Six boys later, we are honoring our grandmothers in another way. Their names will live on with our new business venture….. "Annie and Isabel".

How sweet! NOW go win one! Read on below......

    Also, the reason I want to win...I am pregnant with our 3rd & last child. Last pregnancy I spent 13 days in the hospital at the end blown up like a balloon with pre-eclampsia. An a&I gown just has to make you feel prettier when you are down! I also have severe asthma, and last spring I landed in the hospital twice. Needless to say, I am all too familiar with the worn down over used generic hospital gowns. ;)
