So the holiday season is upon us.

And wouldn't you know that being pregnant is the PERFECT

for going out clothes SHOPPING!

Conversations go a little like this
in my house nowadays

"You spent $97 at Lane Bryant??"
"Well, yeah."
"But didn't you just spend $126 there last week?"
"Well, yeah but you see, I outgrew those clothes already."


It was about time for my weekly trip
when I got an offer a curvy sister could not refuse.
Lane Bryant is sponsoring a little mini shopping spree for me
(and for you - we'll get to that).

In any event, I have a few different holiday parties to hit this year

so I figured I wanted to get a dressy top that would wow the folks

who would be gawking at my midsection all night anyhow.

One that immediately caught my eye was this one
as I channeled my inner Nene Leakes fabulous self.


Thing is, while I was convinced to rock a strapless gig for the best day of my life

I really REALLY think the girls would not be having it right about now.

So instead, here's the look I was working with.

I know some of ya'll are all

"GIRL - you gotta flaunt those curves!"

And I'm all "I know, I KNOW!"
Here's the thing. 
I'm finally (FINALLY!!) starting to show.
So that top, is all kinds of mysterious
"is she, is she not" awesomeness.
Not only is it comfy, but it is ALSO
sparkly and shiny for the golden child.

As for the other curvy curves, 

I'm gonna do it.

I'm gonna rock leggings!
Because really, leggings with bling are just such an obvious choice.

As to really highlight those sexy legs?

I'll try some sparkly rhinestone heels.

Who am I kidding?

They will come off, but I'm preggers and I get to do that kind of thing.

At least my toes will be cute coming and going.

As with any of my outfits, it is ALL about the accessories.

This ring or that ring (how about both?!)

and a cute pair of earrings
with a pair of aviators for the sun that never comes out here.

I also have some really awesome black Lane Bryant necklaces
from seasons long gone that I STILL (and what)
rock with. 

Come to think of it,
this look is high school Caperettes all over again.
Black and Gold forever!
Gooooooo Matadors!

And I still say, And what?

Show me what you're working with this holiday season!
I'm off to shop this afternoon after work because today's surprise offer is

Any black pant/jean $25 (In stores and online)
Sassy cotton panty - 6 for $32 (In stores and online)

Maybe I'll find some black velvet pants instead for my ensemble.

And now, you've made it this far and it is YOUR TURN.
Lane Bryant is totally one of my favorite things.
