Disclosure: I was compensated by Christopher & Banks by payment and or product, however all opinions are my own.
I feel super lucky that I have recently been introduced to a brand that I wish I had known about before, Christopher & Banks!
Ladies, if you have not shopped at Christopher & Banks please do! I promise you will be so happy that you did! Their styles are amazing, but the feel of the fabrics, the fit, the empowered way their fashions will make you feel is something words can not even describe! I personally love that they have a wide range of sizes from 4P to 24W and offer clothing for all occasions including from work to play, which I am going to talk about in this article.
Christopher Banks is also holding an Amazing Women Contest which I will also introduce you to.
I learned that Christopher & Banks
has over 500 retail locations across the US and you can also shop online as well, which you all know is my personal preference! I do plan to make a visit to my local Christopher & Banks retail outlet soon in Overland Park, Kansas soon too.
I love all of the items I received from Christopher & Banks to show you today, my favorite item being the 5 Pocket Heather Ponte Pants which are so soft, I feel as if I am snuggling up with a kitten ladies, no joke! They fit me as if they were made for me, and I loved them so much I ordered two more pair of pants from Christopher & Banks yesterday!
How is that for endorsement that you should be shopping here too?
Work can be daunting, I do not need to tell anyone that! Even if you work from home, or an office, we need clothing that easily converts from day, to play.
It is important to get out and enjoy life, meet up with friends, and unwind from a busy day. This look from Christopher & Banks includes the 5 Pocket Heather Ponte Pant, Quilted Around Town Jacket, and Beaded Neck Pull Over Sweater.
To accessorize the look for day, I added a large red tote, printed scarf, simple dangle earrings in black to match the jewels on the sweater, and cute work friendly mid heel shoes.
For a super easy transition from work to play simply replace the scarf with a great necklace, and switched out the bag! I elected for a longer necklace as to not compete with the super stylish neckline on the beaded neck sweater. I opted for a smaller, but equally stylish clutch because we are already burdened with having to carry too many odds and ends with us during the work day. This gives the overall style an edgy look, but still streamlined, and classic as well.
I love how slimming the 5 Pocket Ponte Pants are, and having petite sizes as an option do not make me feel like I am wearing clothing that is too long for me. Since I do not have a defined waistline, often my upper and lower sections seem to bleed together making me feel like an oompa loompa! Christopher & Banks clothing makes me feel super slim, and super sexy! I also feel like I have an actual midsection since the Quilted Around Town Jacket fits me in both my larger shoulders, and is shorter so it does not hang too low, hiding my waist.
Nothing makes me feel better than well fitting clothing! With Christopher & Banks I feel like I am wearing my clothes, instead of them wearing me. Going from day to play is super simple with only a few minor adjustments.
You can be ready in no time to go out and converse with friends, and feel great doing so!
