It is not often that I get excited opening my email. Usually it is more like, delete, delete, delete, repeat that move a few 100 more times, and you get the idea. However, a couple of weeks ago, I opened my email and had a message from Stephanie of Glamour Farms.Stephanie wanted to know if I would be interested in doing a collaboration. I bet I had the fastest response in history. I was like, oh my goodness YES!!!! I had heard of Glamour Farms through Cyndi Spivey’s blog. I have loved everything she has styled from Glamour Farms, but I am not one that usually orders online, unless it is a place I have ordered before. I am always skeptical of the quality, and then I wondered about the sizing. NO MORE! I should have known to trust Cyndi, but I am a doubting Thomas, what can I say.
Stephanie told me to pick out a few items so they could get an idea of my style, and then they would check inventory, and send me a couple of things. I waited anxiously for the mail to run with my package. I had no idea what would be in the package, so it was a little like Christmas. The first thing I saw was this Magnolia Vest in Yellow. You know I have been on a yellow kick lately, so I started dancing like a school girl. I knew what it looked like on the outside, but how would it be made? I promise you with all my heart, this is extremely well made. A beautiful color yellow, and the fit is perfect. I ordered a large, which is my normal size. For those who are not familiar with my size, I am 5’6″ and weigh around 150-155. I wear a size 10 or a large in both shirts and pants.
The yellow Magnolia Vest is perfect for Spring. I am cold natured, so this little extra quilting really is perfect for me. It adds a little protection without all the added bulk of a coat, and the color just screams Spring. And to sweeten the deal, if you order and use the code Tania01, you will get $10.00 off your entire purchase. I chose to wear this with a navy & white check shirt that I found on clearance a couple weeks ago at Belk. I think I picked this up for around 6.00, so I bought my daughter-in-law one also. Of course hers was in an XS. Haha Navy and yellow are perfect for each other, and by letting the shirt collar go over the vest, that is the color next to my skin. If yellow is not right for your skin tone, then add a shirt under the vest that is. Gray, navy, purple, and white are just a few combinations that you could try.
And here are some plus size options that would great with the vest.
I chose to wear a pair of white ankle pants from Van Heusen, but jeans would have worked too. I like these pants, they are a little dressier than my normal white jeans. These were not lined, but they were a thick material. Remember when wearing white to wear skin toned underwear if possible, to keep them from showing.
Here are the plus size options.
I also am wearing a pair of navy espadrilles from Gilli. I bought these at the QVC outlet store, I just couldn’t help myself. I went to take back a pair of shoes that I bought for my mother that didn’t fit, and I left the store with these. The gold braiding is what sold me. Here are some other similar shoes.
I am carrying one of my spring/summer purses. This Dooney & Bourke purse goes with everything, casual or dressy. From this side view, you can see how the vest dips down in the back, for a little extra bum coverage.I like that the vest is longer in the back, no bum shots here. Haha Please check out Stephanie, Pam, and Elizabeth out at Glamour Farms, and don’t forget to use the code Tania01 for $10.00 off your entire order.
