Blogalicious 2010: What I Wore

Blogalicious Weekend in Miami was beyond anything I imagined. The women were smart, creative, and fabulous! I met so many great ladies, even from the moment I stepped of off the plane! We had such a busy weekend of sessions, that I didn’t have time to take proper outfit posts. It was a wake up early and go to bed late kind of weekend. Here are a few pics from that weekend with a description of what I wore. Oh and by the way, as you can see in most of the photos, I was having MAJOR bang issues! Ughhh!

This weekend I wore a few amazing pieces (above) that were gifted by Lane Bryant. I wore the Cowl neck “Is It” tunic($49.50), the Stripe sequin tank ($29.50), the Multi-layer friendship bracelet ($19.50), and Silvertone chandelier earrings ($14.50). If you know me, then you know I like to acquire multi-functioning pieces in my wardrobe. I love that I can dress up or dress down any of the pieces above.

Being that it’s Miami, I knew the stripe sequin tank would fit right in. I wore it out to dinner with the always amazing Lane Bryant denim jeggings and I got so many compliments on it! Seriously! The only issue I had were the sequins that were near my underarm were kind of scratching me. I think it’s because I got the tank a little too big. I should have stuck with the more fitted size.

As you can see below, I paired the tunic with a pair of gifted Sejour by Nordstrom rayon leggings (a new plus size line!). The gorgeous chandelier earrings brought a touch of sparkle to this all black outfit. This tunic can be worn as a dress. I would of done it too if I wasn’t too much of a chicken! I wore the friendship bracelet both nights and the day after. I love it!

Above I mentioned Sejour by Nordstrom, it’s a new plus-size line. I am going to do a post on this line soon, but I just wanted to mention them and show you the two pieces I wore this past weekend. I wore their luxuriously soft Rayon Leggings and this gorgeous Drape Front Embellished Top (below) that was also gifted. I wish you could see the sparkle of this top. I paired it with Lane Bryant earrings and black skinny jeans from Old Navy.

This is an amazing top I found on the clearance rack at Macy’s. It’s by Rachel Roy and it was originally $99 and I bought it for $20! I was in heaven! The colors remind me of a sunset. I think it was meant to be big, because the tag say’s it’s a medium and it fit me. I wore it with my Torrid jeans and sandals. Loved it!

**Some of these items were gifted. This has no way affected my review, all of the above is my honest opinion. Please read my disclosure policy here.

  • Ouidad Blog

    Looks like you had lots of fun in Miami, what a great city! Your outfits look great. Don't worry about your bangs, by the way, they look fine… rebellious bangs are kind of fashionable anyway. I never would have noticed if you hadn't said something.

    Oh man! I wish there was a Nordstrom within like, 400 miles of me! I have the double challenge of being both curvy and a small town girl. We do however have a Lane Bryant, and the stripe sequin tank is calling my name!
