>AN OLD FAVORITE:THE TIE NECK BLOUSE

>

Yesterday I pulled out an old favorite, my tie neck blouse I bought last fall. I had an event to go to yesterday evening and I wanted to wear a top that was sheer and light enough to go under my sequin waiter jacket that was gifted to me from Nordstrom’s new plus collection Sejour. I also wore my pink lipstick from MAC, “Girl About Town” which I just love. I normally only put a dab on because I’m afraid of the brightness, but, after reading Coco and Creme’s article A New Era for the Darker Girl about dark skin women wearing bright makeup, I decided to put on a little more than usual so the color would show. What do you guys think, too much?

I had such a long day yesterday that I was glad I wore light pieces that were comfortable.  This snow is driving me crazy. I have to keep my heels in my bag for indoors and stomp around in my big old Timberland snow boots when traveling to and from. Hope you guys are hanging in there. I heard the groundhog saw his shadow and spring is coming early or is it the other way around? I don’t really believe in that, but after the weekly snow storms we’ve been having, I sure am hoping spring comes early and stays for awhile.

>NORDSTROM UNVEILS EXCLUSIVE PLUS SIZE LINE SEJOUR

>

Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Yesterday Nordstrom unveiled their new plus size line called Sejour. A few months ago I was contacted by Nordstrom along with some of my fave curvy girl bloggers to try out their new line. They reached out to seek our opinions on fit, fabric, and style, and let me tell you they were thorough with the questioning, making sure they understood our needs.

Currently the line consists of basic pieces that you can pair with your more fashion forward pieces. I know it may not necessarily be the young, trendy, contemporary pieces that many young plus size women are looking for but  it’s definitely modern pieces that are easy to incoporate in your wardrobe.

The two pieces I liked most from the collection were the over sized cardigan and the lace top. I do like that a couple of pieces like the sequin blazer and cargo pants let us know that they are paying attention to the trends. The oversized cardigan in purple is super cozy and warm. I wore it in an ootd HERE.

This is a little blurb from Nordstroms about their new plus size collection Sejour:

Nordstrom recognizes that plus-size women deserve more on-trend, in-store and online choices, and is pleased to announce its new plus-size brand with modern styling called Sejour. Sejour will be available exclusively in the Encore department beginning the first through second weeks of November. The brand will launch in two phases with the first roll-out in November, and culminate in the spring with our entire selection of styles.

 
Sejour is designed to meet the needs of the modern customer while still offering the core styles that our customers love. Sizes will run from 14W- 24W, and 1X-3X, priced from $28 to $200.
