Striped Dress + Utility Vest with Old Navy


Are you ready to layer up ? It’s almost September and Fall is just around the corner. I am so excited today to partner with Old Navy to style one of my Fall 2013 must haves. As I mentioned in a previous post Old Navy just launched their women’s plus line here in Canada, and they sent me a very generous gift card to try it out and  off course report back to my readers. You already know that I immediately came up with a long list of items I wanted for Fall, ( you can see my list here) and this utility vest was one of them. I am wearing a 1x but this cute vest goes up to 4x. Shopping the women’s plus line is just like shopping the regular line and my shipping took about 8 days which was not bad at all. With the women’s plus line the free return can only be done my mail contrary to what I thought, so that will be something to think about when you make your order, I cannot wait to share the rest of my items in the coming posts. Have you started your Fall shopping yet?

Note: Always check the size chart before making your purchase. If you are used to buying from junior plus size  lines, note that the sizing might be different. 

Dress: Gap ( wore it last here ) | Vest: c/o Old Navy | Bag: Zara (sold out) | Belt: Addition Elle | Shoes: Nine West (similar here) |

    Tu es très belle ds cet ensemble et pourtant ce ne st pas des couleurs facilement associables. J'aime que l'ultra féminité du sac à main et sa couleur vienne adoucir le gilet vert un peu masculin. J'aime vraiment bcp cet ensemble. Comme on dit ds le monde de l'art ça fonctionne.

    Bonne journée.

      I swear I feel the same way but I am leaning how to layer too. Hopefully by the end of this Fall/winter I'll master. Thanks for stopping by darling.
