Lane Bryant Surprise Offer, Lots of Fun Holiday Looks, and a Giveaway! #LB12Days

I like to shop {shocking…I know} and since Lane Bryant has started their 12 Days of the Most Wonderful Surprises, I’ve been doing more shopping than usual.  Before I tell you all about the shopping I’ve been doing, I wanted to make sure you knew what today’s surprise offer is.

Accesories: buy one get one for $1.

I’m totally heading back to Lane Bryant today to take advantage of this surprise offer!!!  I found so many cute accessories! Ok…now on to my shopping trip(s)!

On my first trip (I made 3 this week), I was in a hurry and just picked up a few basics (like panties and earrings).  If you’ve never checked out the panties at Lane Bryant, you’re missing out.  They have cute styles in fun prints.  How cute is this cupcake print?

On my 2nd trip, I was in the store less than 5 minutes, I just needed some Spanx.

My 3rd trip, however, I hit the jackpot!  The sales associates working (Nikki and Danesha) were so helpful and I was able to put together some really cute outfits.

I was looking for something that would be fun for all the Christmas parties and festivities that I will be attending, but that I would be able to wear after the holidays as well.  I decided to stick with my normal color palette (black, denim, more black, and a little gray to mix things up), but just add a few sparkles.  I loaded up the dressing room with things I thought might work and got started!

For starters, I found these fabulous boots and decided to work an outfit around them.  I found a pair of jeggings, added a black shimmery blouse, and topped it off with a shrug.  I finished the look off with a shimmery hat!

While the outfit was cute, I didn’t love it. I liked the top, liked the boots, thought the shrug was OK, and I loved the hat, but I wasn’t a big fan of the jeggings.  They just didn’t fit me right.  I decided to try on a coat next.

I liked the coat…and I liked it even more when I paired it with this fabulous red hat!

When I took off the coat and the shrug, I realized that the shimmery top from the first outfit looked quite cute without the shrug.  If only I still lived in Phoenix, I could pull off sleeveless in the middle of winter.  I mean, seriously, don’t’ you love the neckline on this?

My next choice was a black and white houndstooth shirt with a black sparkly hat.  I figured that I could pair it with black dress pants for work.

The shirt was OK…the pants looked hideous on me.  I have a friend that wears that style of pants and they look fabulous on her, but they definitely were not the right style for me.  Thankfully, Nikki and Danesha were on it and they found me a much better pair of black pants which you’ll see later with a different outfit.

The next outfit I tried on was not something I’d normally try on, but I was trying to get out of my box.

I tend to go for things that are a little more fitted, so I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about this non-fitted top.  I was actually pleasantly suprised.  I added a few necklaces and I thought it was a nice change from my normal look.  Then I headed back into the dressing room to try another outfit.

I tried on this shimmery Lurex sweater with the arm cut-outs and wasn’t sure how I felt about it.  I took quite a few pictures so I could see it from every angle.  While in the store, I decided I wasn’t too thrilled about it, but after getting home and looking at all the pics, I’ve decided I really like it…and I think I’ll like it even more if I’m wearing some shapewear under it. I think I may go back and get it. What do you think of it?

The last outfit I tried on was a pair of black pants (which I LOVE!!!) a grey shimmery top, and the black shrug I wore in the first outfit. {Note to self…wear shapewear when going shopping.  Rolls are just not flattering…especially when you post pics for the whole world to see.}

I thought it was a great combo.  The black pants were a must for me.  I took a picture of the tag because I wanted to be sure I told you exactly which style they were in case you wanted to go try on a pair.

I’m loving Lane Bryant right now.  And although this is a sponsored post, I spent far more money at Lane Bryant this week than what I’m getting paid to write this because I honestly love their clothes!

If you’re in need of some fabulous clothes, you’re in luck!
