Lane Bryant Review – Plus Win & Save!

New York, New York…you stole my heart. I love this city and lucky for me the 2010 BlogHer conference was held here. I had so much fun making new friends, networking, and learning from the best in the blogging world. Plus there was so much swag! Amazing!

But, it wasn’t the perfect trip…let me briefly explain. My flight out of LAX was delayed and made me miss my connection. I was rebooked which delayed my arrival by 6 hours! I checked into the hotel and that night my laptop crashed. My cell phone battery was dying after only 30 minutes of being fully charged and the camera I borrowed didn’t work. I was having a tech nightmare. So, the photos you see are via my cell phone (after a new battery) and a small Kodak hand held camcorder. I apologize for the quality.

I promised to not let any of my technical difficulties ruin my time in New York. Besides, I had some fabulous clothes courtesy of Lane Bryant to wear. I picked them up during the L.A. Fatshion Bloggers event, and I couldn’t be happier with these pieces.

I started the first day of the conference in their leopard print maxi dress, which I got for an amazing price by the way! This dress was so comfortable and I got tons of compliments on it! Unfortunately, I don’t think it’s available on the site anymore. But, you can check their in-store sale section.

Did I mention it was really hot and muggy while I was there? I really didn’t have to worry about that, because I was nice and cool in this dress. I paired my Nine West gladiator sandals with it and a necklace from Forever 21. I wish I would have gone up one size in the dress, but this was the only one they had. I had to pull the dress up a couple of times. I also got my hands on a Cacique Seamless 5-way Convertible Bra. I love this bra! The support was great, especially when I wore it strapless. I didn’t feel like I was going to fall out or that it was going to fall down.

On Saturday, I wore their Sequin Lapel Sweater Vest, their Knit Denim Jeggings, and a white tank. I also got a lot of compliments on the vest. It was surprisingly nice to wear the vest in the 80 degree weather and I loved the length. The only issue I had was the sequins around the neck area would get caught on my hair. And can I just say that these jeggings are AWESOME! This was my first pair and I want to go back and get more! Loved the fit and stretch of the denim. I went down one size from what I normally wear and I was loving them! The length was perfect for me (I’m 5’6). Thanks Lane Bryant for outfitting me during BlogHer 2010!

**BlogHer Recap: You already know I had an amazing time! Not only did I meet amazing women, but I had to the chance to get my makeup done at the P&G Home, I got tons of swag, and I met model Veronica Webb (very nice) and Bruce Jenner. I even took the time to talk to HauteLook, Shop Style, and White House Black Market about carrying extended sizes. ASSETS by Sara Blakely were on hand and we had a great conversation. Hopefully, I made great connections! Here’s a slideshow of some pics:
