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!

Now here’s your chance to win and save with Lane Bryant! Get your hands on this amazing gift cheque! You can get a whopping $25 off a $75 purchase, it’s only valid until August 24th. Go here to print it out!!

You can also enter to win a $20 gift card from Lane Bryant. All you have to do is go to my Facebook page and “Like” Curves and Chaos. Leave a comment under the post on the wall with the the following questions:

-What is sexy?
-What’s your favorite item of clothing?
-When’s the last time you had a bra fitting?
-Why do you love Lane Bryant?
-What would you like to see from Lane Bryant?

Good luck!! Contest ends 8/23/10 and winner will be chosen using Random.org.

**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:

‘Pinky’ Paisley Top Giveaway!!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

I must confess…I buy stuff and never wear it. Yes, it is true!! I’m so ashamed! So, to make up for it, I’m going to give one of you this ‘Pinky’ paisley top! I purchased this from Alloy and I thought I’d wear it, but I haven’t.

It is brand new, but I removed the tags. I promise that it’s never been worn. You have my word! It is an XL, but it is very roomy and flowy. It is a see through top, but you can just throw a tube top underneath. So, it should fit anyone from a U.S. size 12-18…maybe even a size 20.

The rules and entry form are below. Good luck!

**For an extra entry, please tweet the following: ” I just entered to win a chic paisley top @CurvesandChaos Enter today! http://bit.ly/9Tw38b “

{Please make sure to post the link of your tweet, as a comment. Or I won’t be able to keep track of your extra entry. Thanks!}
