Wednesday: Glitz and Glam

Top: Alfani c/o Gwynnie Bee | Jacket: Limited (similar) | Pants: Tahari | Shoes: Cole Haan | Bracelet: c/o In Pink | Necklace: Lillith” c/o Kristin Biggs, Stella and Dot

I love Gwynnie Bee for the holiday season – they have so many fun dresses, skirts, and tops with that hint of glitz and glam that is perfect for the office holiday party, a New Year gala, or a fete at your friend’s house. This top is a soft stretchy fabric with a nice weight that won’t let it cling – perfect with some skinny jeans and heels for a happy hour, or a pencil skirt for a dressier event. I paired it with simple black work separates to make it more day appropriate, and liked adding this necklace to make the gold look more tough.

Speaking of Gwynnie Bee, they are continuing their trial subscription promotion through the month of December.  Until the end of the year, if you sign up for Gwynnie Bee and Mention Wardrobe Oxygen, you will receive a free, 30-day trial subscription (up to 3 items at a time).  No risk, no committment, and many of you have told me you have tried and enjoyed this promotion.  If you like Gwynnie Bee, awesome!  If not, cancel on or before your 30 days are up and you won’t be charged (though Gwynnie Bee needs their clothes back).  New Gwynnie Bee Guests, request an invite (the site is invite-only at this time), tell them that Wardrobe Oxygen referred you, activate your account, browse around and give it a try. You will receive an email with the invite and the trial instruction. Existing Gwynnie Bee guests: you are also eligible to receive the 30 day free trial. You can use your current guest account to browse, then go to the “subscribe” part of the site to activate your trial. Remember to tell them Wardrobe Oxygen referred you so you can get the trial!

If you wear a 10 or larger and are intrigued by Gwynnie Bee, I encourage you to read my review of the company here. I have chosen to partner with Gwynnie Bee because I believe in the company.  I know how hard it is to find fun and fashionable clothes when you are plus-sized or cusp-sized, especially when you don’t live in a metropolitan area.  Gwynnie Bee offers the best plus-sized brands to you with free shipping, free returns, and a constantly updated collection of current trends.  Their customer service can’t be beat, and in my few months with Gwynnie Bee I have been amazed at how they have improved and grown their collection, much thanks to the feedback of their customers.  If you have additional questions about Gwynnie Bee, feel free to leave a comment or email me, though I do receive a commission on each person who signs up, I’d far prefer you to not sign up because you have the right information and know it’s not for you, than to sign up and regret it.  I promise to be completely honest with you about any brand I mention, partner with, or feature on this blog.

    Lovely outfit and your hair looks very cute today.

  • Anna D.

    I don’t normally comment here, but I did have to say that you look adorable in that outfit! It’s really flattering. (And I agree, your hair looks great!)

    Thank you for coming out of lurking, and for the lovely comment! :)

    Very glamorous! I have to ask – do you like your Cole Haan booties? I’m on a year’s shopping hiatus, but I think a pair of those Nike Air shoes might be the first thing I buy when this is over. Are they as comfortable as people say?

  • http://www.wardrobeoxygen.com/ Allie at Wardrobe Oxygen

    They are more comfortable than similar styles from other brands, but they aren’t my most comfortable shoes. While they have great cushioning, it’s still a very high narrow heel and a very thin sole. For their style, they are comfortable and I am glad I bought them, but they aren’t Holy Grail comfort shoes like Sofft shoes are for me. :)

  • Red Peeptoe Pumps

    That’s very good to know. Thanks, Allie!

  • natylite78

    This look is so flattering! Fit is everything, yes? Xoxo

  • Lindy

    Darling outfit, but why does one of my favorite blogs seem to be becoming an advertising outlet?

  • http://www.wardrobeoxygen.com/ Allie at Wardrobe Oxygen

    I gotta admit, a bunch of promotions seem to have been lumped together at the same time. BlogHer sent me two ads to post on posts yesterday, a plethora of giveaways, and then Gwynnie Bee on top of it. Do know this is not the norm. Yes, I will be featuring Gwynnie Bee when I wear it (and will only wear what I actually like), but long spiels like this I only do when there’s a new promotion for them. I apologize for the onslaught, and want you and everyone else to know that it won’t be a regular occurrence. :)

    I like your bracelet but I wish it came in silver.

  • http://www.wardrobeoxygen.com/ Allie at Wardrobe Oxygen

    Ooh me too, that would be gorgeous!

  • http://phenofab.blogspot.com/ katie terry

    agreed, *very* flattering look today! (i think it’s the trousers?)

  • http://www.wardrobeoxygen.com/ Allie at Wardrobe Oxygen

    These trousers are the bomb, glad Tahari keeps making this style!

  • Teri Stan

    I saw this on Gwynnie Bee but hesitated because the style looked a bit constrictive in the chest area. It seems to fit you so well. Do you feel comfortable in this without pulling and fussing? Your entire outfit looks so fantastic on you! Sharp!

  • http://www.wardrobeoxygen.com/ Allie at Wardrobe Oxygen

    Yes, I think this runs large. This is a Large, they also sent me the XL since they knew I would be wearing it on the blog and the XL felt more like a 1X, yet it didn’t gape in the armpits like bigger tops do. I have a large chest and broad shoulders and this top was extremely comfortable, no pulling at all. The fabric is a bit like scuba fabric or a more synthetic ponte which gives great stretch and doesn’t cling at all. No bra showing, no stretching, and nice and smooth inside. You should try it. :)

  • Teri Stan

    I think I’ll head over there and try it out! Thank you. It really is pretty!

  • Happinessatmidlife

    This is such a flattering look on you. I love the necklace and how it brings out the gold in your top.
