With Gratitude in a Hat

My trip to BlogHer09 was enhanced by a few companies that reached out and put an ambassador hat on me. I don’t know if you know it, but I wear hats really well.

First and foremost, Lane Bryant, one of my favorite plus size clothing stores for my plus size body, came through with a $100.00 gift card that was used in conjunction with a $50.00 off coupon.  They also sent me a great bra that make ‘the girls’ look like they never even suckled one baby, let alone FOUR!

Not only was LB good to me in the way of sponsoring a supplement to my wardrobe, I was treated very well at both store locations that I visited.   As a matter of fact, I am always treated very well by the associates of that store.  They are almost always plus sized women, too, and that really makes me feel welcomed, accepted, and understood.

I got the most compliments on this outfit, and I even wore the skirt twice.  I know, I know, mortal sin, eh, but it’s comfortable and I love it so.  Lane Bryant, I consider us kin.  After all my last name is…Lane.

The next ambassador hat that I donned was from Yummie Tummie.  At first I didn’t know how I felt about Yummie Tummie.  I’m glad that I measured myself before choosing the size that was right for me.  But, yeah, at first I was a little ambivalent about the shape wear.  After wearing it for a week, though, I do like how versatile it is. I like how pulled together it makes me feel, and it’s a whole lot easier to put on compared to my Spanx.  I’ve been a shape wear fan for many years.  I’ve always loved to wear body suits under my clothes because I just don’t like to feel the flabbiness.  No denying I am plus sized, but–dammit–if I feel pulled in, I feel awesome.

Out of no where I got this email from one of my sister-friends, Angie.  She put me in touch with Lily Oswald from Sorrelli Jewelery.  I had the hardest time deciding what to pick to wear because everything is just so beautiful.  I ended up with this set:

Thank you to all three of these companies for letting me represent them. They contributed to making me feel even more beautiful at my first BlogHer experience.

    You looked beautiful all weekend! The Lane Bryant clothing was lovely, but you would look good in just about anything.

    And I love my Yummie Tummie too – it smoothed without sucking me in uncomfortably.
