Romance and a Giveaway

Remember when I said I would be doing a shapewear as outerwear challenge? Well, here it is! 

I styled this Vedette bodysuit with a pleated skirt and bright jacket and topped it off with a statement necklace. And, yes, I am wearing this for some romantic drinks with my helpmeet, because we’re celebrating 6 years of marriage (and 11 years together) this month. That calls for a little va va voom (and tickets to the ballet - which I am indescribably excited about) and this bodysuit provides it in spades. 

pleated skirt: found on Amazon / shoes: Spring / shapewear: Vedette / tights: Target / clutch: Target / blazer: F21 / necklace: F21 

I have to admit, I feel a lot more confident wearing this than I thought I would; there’s certain boldness about it that I love because I feel like I have nothing to hide. 

And you can win some Vedette shapewear for your very own. Vedette is generously offering 3 surprise shapewear items to readers! All you have to do to enter is “like” Vedette on Facebook and “like” Sartorial Sidelines in the same place. Leave a comment below letting me know you want to be entered (and include your Facebook name so that I can verify you’ve met the entry requirements). 

I will be drawing three winners at random on February 27 and the contest is open to US, Canadian, and International readers.
