So there was a big-ass blogging conference a few weeks ago.
Lane Bryant was nice enough to hook me up with a gift card to buy some clothes for the weekend.
Henna cotton sweater – $44.50
Ivory nylon cami – $19.50
Patchwork capri jeans – $54.50
Triple strand ribbon necklace – $29.50
I’m pretty sure every person who saw that necklace totally loved it. Which made me happy – I’m rarely the one who picks the perfect accessory – but this time I did it!
I wore that as my travel outfit and then swapped the pieces around the rest of the weekend – I’ve gotten a lot of use out of them since getting home too. Yay!
After I tried on the hot red dress I’d ordered for party night – I emailed the Clever Girls pleading for some shapewear to fix a few evils that red satin just wouldn’t cover. The hooked me up and helped me out – I was wearing the shortie when I met Heather Thomson the creator of YummieTummie – I showed her mine and she showed me hers – she said she loved how she always knew exactly where to put her hands on her waist when she was wearing the shortie – and she was totally right. I whipped em out again to wear under some pants when I went for a job interview, and even though my hair looked que terri-blay, my ass looked good.
I saw Stefania wearing the Chiffon Tier Top while we were at a conference in June – I loved seeing the top on a non-model – she looked fantastic in it – so when the Clever Girls asked the YummieTummie brand ambassadors what we wanted for our one year anniversary, I jumped on that action for myself!
For both the YT items, I’ve sized down to a Large – even though the size chart looks like I should be in a larger size, this is working for me – I get held in better and it looks better too – I’m in love with the ready to wear apparel – truly madly deeply.
(I don’t have any photos of me in the YT Chiffon yet – but check out their facebook photos for shots of people rockin’ the YT in NYC.)
I have the YT chiffon top and I HEART IT! I wear it all the time and I’m sure that people are sick of seeing me in it, but I still think it’s heaven.
We can wear our matching tops when we hit the town soon. Snort.
You look fabulous!!
Dawn: You still have me on your blogroll? That made me proud, and sad, and emotional and junk. My duckie named Kaiser died not long ago. He died in my arms. I have a memorial of him in the duck pen. Each night in our prayers before dinner the Little Woman always prays, “..and we hope Beau and Ooboo and Kaiser and our other pets are happy in Heaven and we’ll be together again some day.” I named him after your blog. Kido, I pray many blessings and happiness for you.
…Oh and P.S. my blog changed to WordPress. I’m simply ducksmahal.com.
