Before you give me credit by thinking that Jeopardy or some other braniac activity stopped me on my tracks, let me cut to the chase and set things straight: My closet stumped me.
Yes, my closet.
This was a very real issue that could very well stop my travels to Blog Her this year. Seriously.
Not only did my presentable clothes shrink (while my girth widened), my shoes were a major issue because they are either flat with no support, or too high to wear for more than a couple of hours.
In the casual fashion capital of the world, West Los Angeles, this is not an issue. I can get away with wearing flip-flops and be done with it. But presenting to a few hundred bloggers at the most important blogging conference in the world threw me in the limelight.
I had to look presentable, while being both comfortable and fashionable. Not an easy task for someone that is 5'10" and a size 16.
This is where my Fairy Godparents, called Earthies and Eliza Parker, came to the rescue:
They BOTH shipped me an entire outfit weeks before BlogHer. (Dress and Shoes)
|This is the beautiful Dress I received from Eliza Parker|
|These are my beautiful, comfortable and super stylish "Verias" by Earthies.|
Not only could I walk in the Veria Too all day, I would also get asked by mere strangers "where I got my shoes?"
|This is the outfit I wore for the Ricki Lake Show taping.|
But most importantly, ridiculously comfortable to wear. Maybe it's the arch support, or the wedge heel. Quite possibly it's the super lush suede, or the ankle strap that hugs, not chokes your ankle. Whatever it is, the actual build of the Veria Too and the look makes it a must have for any women's closet.
|LOVE how my Earthies Veria Too look when coupled with bright nail polish.|
Now it's your turn to feel beautiful, be fashionable and comfortable when you enter to win a pair of Earthies of your choice.
Stay pretty and fashionable - but most importantly "Good luck!"
