I love new clothes! They make me feel happy and all refreshed, a reflection of what I find lovely about fashion. I don’t consider myself a fashionista, generally choosing a look that’s more understated than bold, working with colors that make me look my brightest. But I will say I am very particular about what I wear and yes, everything has to match… I mean everything has to match. So when Tablots reached out to me about sponsoring my wardrobe to BlogHer 2011 I jumped at the chance to head to my favorite local store and find a great look to put my best fashion foot forward all week long.
My experience was similar to many others that I’ve had at the store ~ simply wonderful! My usual conference clothing strategy begins with taking a look at my closet, choosing some core pieces, and then scooting over to my Talbots to meet with their talented staff to mix it up a bit with accessories, a new scarf, and some new pieces that are on trend for the season. Always mindful of my budget, they work wonders with the sale section and between what I have and what is often on sale, I usually come out feeling like I’ve hit the jack pot. This time, we focused on current collections and it was off the hook amazing. I found myself in outfits I might not typically choose and loving them, working with color schemes that are both fresh and edgy for me, with more assistance than I could have dreamed, and the added bonus of meeting a visual artist from corporate who was simply divine making sure that I bring it on what makes Talbots truly rock. Take a look here:

Disclosure: The Talbots Company has sponsored my wardrobe for BlogHer 2011. As part of this project, I am posting in advance of the event. My content is original and opinions entirely my own. However given that I’ve shopped at Talbots for more than 20 years and their clothing lines have long been my signature style, it’s fair to say we share many of the same opinions when it comes to classic style and trends that never end ~ enjoy!
