Lane Bryant Best Fitting Denim

Ask 100 women what is the most versatile items in their closet and I bet 98% will say a pair of jeans. As I mentioned in my 2019 wardrobe goals getting another pair of jeans is on my closet to do this year since right now I only have one pair. And wouldn't you know it but the folks at Lane Bryant must have read my mind since they're offering the Best Fitting Denim event this upcoming weekend and they have asked me to be their special guest so not only I could find my own perfect fitting jeans but help y'all do the same.
Lane Bryant offers a good variety of jeans not only in shape but in color, wash and fun details. Before showing the perfect pair for me here's a look at just a few of the options. It was really nice to be able to play around with the wash, length and fit so see what I liked about each.

Although I LOVE the fun ruffle and ribbon embellishments I felt like a traditional pair of jeans matches my lifestyle. I tried on the straight leg and boot cut three times back and forth trying to decided because I liked them both so much. Ultimately I went with the Tighter Tummy Essential Stretch Boot Jean.

I'm lucky enough to be able to wear jeans to work but I prefer to dress them up a bit to keep the overall look professional and the length of the boot cut (32.5 inch inseam) works really well for me at 5'10 with heels. I also find darker wash jeans to be dressier. The tighter tummy technology of these jeans adds a little bit of shaping in the front and I'm in love with the way the fit hugs my curves in the back. I am currently between sizes so I sized down to the 20. My philosophy with jeans is that they should be a little snug in the dressing room since they will relax with wear and sure enough by the time I took these pics the fit felt perfect! 

I've also been on the prowl for a utility jacket - classic pieces with feminine details are the cornerstone of my wardrobe so I had to snag the ruffle-front anorak jacket; It's less formal than a blazer but still adds structure. The woven ruffle-hem hacci top adds a little more feminine detailing and I finished the look with delicate jewelry - the 60 in necklace with CZ and mini resin huggie circle earrings. I'm wearing the 18/20 in both the top and jacket. The jacket has a drawstring insert around the waist so it can be cinched making the fit adjustable.

On the weekends I can easily swap the top for a graphic tee and the heels for flats or sneakers and get a completely different look - which is pretty much my favorite thing to do with clothes.

There's literally so many great jean options that I just didn't have the time to try on everything to show them here so I'd love to see you on Saturday to help you find you best fitting denim and show you some fun styling ideas for dressing up or dressing down your jeans. All denim will be 40% off during the event and every purchase comes with a free pair on panties. In addition to giving some style tips we'll have giveaways at 2:30pm, 3pm, 3:30pm and 4pm. If you're in Memphis I would love to see you at the Country Crossing location in Cordova (off Germantown Parkway in front of Ikea) but if you're in a different city I hope you'll visit your local store for this event.

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Customize your clothing with Eshakti

Have you ever seen an article of clothing and loved it but thought oh, if only it had sleeves, or was longer - as someone who is 5’10 this happens to me ALL THE TIME! Allow me to introduce you to eShakti - the fashion site that allows you to customize your clothes. 

eShakti has hundreds of styles to choose from so picking a piece is honestly the hardest part. I selected this blue and white ruffle stripe dress thinking it would be perfect for spring and summer - I love wearing it now but I can’t wear it to the beach in May! Once you select your item you either enter your size or measurements and enter your height. You can then buy the item as it or pay a $9.95 styling fee to select the neckline, sleeves and length to your liking. My dress was above the knee in the default style but I thought a below the knee length would be perfect and I was not disappointed! 
Most pieces are under $100 making this an affordable and approachable way to have a unique and custom piece in your closet. Th…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Memphis Fashion Week Emerging Designers Preview

April doesn't just mean spring in Memphis is also means fashion! Tickets are completely sold out for this year's Memphis Fashion Week but what I love about MFW is the inclusiveness - the Trunk Show is open to the public Friday and Saturday and Saturday at 11am there will be a free designer talk also open to the public.   MFW always closes with the Emerging Designer Project Runway Show and it has become quite the popular event - you don't typically think of Memphis as being a fashion hub but there is a great amount of talent and creativity here! This year Memphis Fashion Design Network (the parent organization of MFW) hosted a preview of the emerging designer works. While it's always fun to see these works of art come to life on the runway it was really cool to see these pieces up close too - and of course to be able to share with y'all! A crowded party isn't the ideal spot for my best photography but I hope y'all enjoy seeing these designs and if you'…

Memphis Fashion Week 2019 Featured Designers

This year's Memphis Fashion Week (MFW) really emphasized Memphis Fashion and I couldn't love it more if I tried. The Friday Featured Designer Runway show featured four local Memphis designers and one regional designer. I tried to get a photo of each look but sometimes the models move before the shutter snaps or the pic just doesn't come out good but I hope this (pic heavy) post gives you an idea of all the talent in Memphis and the south! Tanganika by Tangie Tangie uses cotton African prints to make beautiful, colorful clothing. I think these items are just so beautifully made and I love the details. I'll admit that in our politically sensitive world I worry that if I wore such a print it could come off as cultural appropriation instead of appreciation but seeing these looks on the runway has really reminded me that my goal this year it to step outside my fashion comfort zone.
