Old Sport


Last week I meet up with Lanae, Polished Plus blogger, for a meeting with her and parts of the Old Navy Plus team.  It was really nice to see a team that is really passionate about the plus size portion of their business.  That is such a rarity, especially when it's in addition to the regular sizes.  So kudos to them.  I decide to go a little more business-y for this meeting by just doing what I would consider to be traditional work wear look.  

So you may notice that I am turning up the knob on the giveaways.  It's Libra season and since I've been so blessed, I want to bless others during my birthday season (I'm Oct 17th). I kicked it off with the $150 Wal-mart gift card giveaway (you can enter the post right below this one).  But I also have a fun giveaway for this post.  See my fancy bracelet (it's really a necklace).  This was courtesy of Chloe & Isabel.  Want to win a piece of your choice. Enter on the rafflecopter below.  Also, make sure you check back so you don't miss out on any of the awesome giveawys...and please believe me some awesomeness is about to happen.  
Style Note:  I'm in love with this Nordstrom top. It's so on trend with the sportswear trend, but definitely still work appropriate.  The arms are chiffon on this top.  If you have larger arms you may want to up one size.  I got the 2x.  I really would have liked a bigger fit, but the 3Xs were sold out.  Please note that I did not cut my hair.  It's just a french braid where the excess hair is pinned up.  





Top:  Nordstrom, Skirt - Lane Bryant (similar) , Bracelet - Chloe & Isabel, Shoes - 6pm (similar)

Oh! If you have a moment, I am finalist in the #denimdebunked contest with AllYou Magazine.  Please take a moment to vote for me (no sign in needed) here.  The winner receives a feature on the AllYou website and a $500 gift card to Catherines (of course, I'll give that away) which can be used at Lane Bryant as well.

    4. Oh, that is actually helpful b/c I was trying to figure out if you were wearing eyeshadow and blush, or just liner and mascara, and I'm darker so the color's I'd use for this look would be slightly different. I'm pretty sure I can figure it out for my skin tone. I've been doing red and purple lips lately but this makes me want to pop out the pink...

    5. My sister is an MUA and she says that people can wear a lot of the same colors, but this is more of my natural golden brown look, so I try to work with colors that bring out my own natural colors and undertones

  5. I also thought your makeup was wonderful. The chiffon on the top makes this very different and the ring of embellishments on the top.
