I know clothes do not make the person. But they sure do help make you feel good about yourself. Great looking clothes makes you feel good about yourself and builds confidence. Last week I attended the third annual Shes Connected for the second year in a row. This event is for bloggers to learn, network and meet reps and companies. Looking good and being sure of myself was a must. Plus I was on a panel for the first time ever. Scary for me but it turned out great. Quite a few of my blogger friends mentioned how they loved my look. A few even said I looked very confident. I wish I could take all of the credit. But I can not. Penningtons was so generous they set me up with everything I needed for the conference. Daytime, nighttime and more.
Working from home people often think what we wear is not a big deal. However I attend quite a few events and need to make sure I am looking my best. Thankfully Penningtons had just what this Plus sized blogger needed, dressy styles and great fits.
I was able to get three pairs of pants, a few shirts a dress and a night shirt. I also went back and got a bit of big funky jewelry that was marked down. The colours for Fall are perfect for my hair colour. Red hair goes great with earthy tones and I really found that everything fit great. I felt curvy and confident not clumsy and frumpy. I also need to add, every time I walk into one of their stores the staff is so helpful and friendly.
For $250 I was able to transform my wardrobe and get lots of mix and match pieces. Many of the shirts I can wear with dress pants or jeans. The material is very durable and washes up really nice. I have a few events coming up and look forward to being able to still wear these pieces as they have so many “looks” to them.
