Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

Jennifer Garner – Here I Come


So two days ago I posted a video blog called ‘Fashion Hauling‘ where I showed you a few items I purchased during my latest shopping spree. Just wanted to show you what outfit I ended up wearing. It was the Urban Outfitter piece with the skinny belt.  I know I said I was going to wear flats or boots – but the weather played nice and I actually opted for a pair of heels. My feet are suffering today because of it. LOL!

While I don’t have time to talk about all the new and wonderful things I learned about Pantene, I will tell you I am SUPER EXCITED about the new line. They’ve completely revamped the formula and are now specifically targeting women according to their hair type.  During the event, I had a stylist wash, treat and straighten my hair. All that pampering!! I just couldn’t believe it. Each writer had their own stylist to work with so there was no rush and you were really able to be involved in the process. I asked a million questions and have a TON of tips to share.

I even interviewed Danilo who was such a pleasure. He’s done hair for Lady Gaga (her ‘Telephone’ video people!!), Gwyneth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway, Kate Hudson – JUST TO NAME A FEW. Talk about stylist to the stars.

As if yesterday wasn’t exciting enough – I am heading into the city now to meet Jennifer Garner! I was actually asked to bring my family – so the kids are getting ready as we speak. I’m trying my hardest to wrap up ‘I’m Not Obsessed‘ and get a few posts done over here because it looks like it’s going to be a full day.

Will post everything over the weekend! So very excited because Jen is just as sweet as pie. I’ve always wanted to meet her.

Oh an PS – the lovely ladies that I am standing with are my good friends Aly and Lauren. Haven’t seen them in a while so it was such a pleasure to hang out with them yesterday.

  1. Love the outfit Vera!!

  2. That is a lovely picture of you, Vera. I adore the outfit except I would’ve worn a different cardigan/vest. But that’s just my personal opinion. Everyone should wear what they feel most comfortable and cute in!

  3. I really like how it looks on, Vera! And funny, I was loving the vest even more w/it on you – I love the length. And yes…I gotta ask you – the shoes!! So cute! Do you remember what brand they are? Zappos or Piperlime, here I come!

  4. You are so cute, Vera!!
    Love the outfit. And I’m so jealous you get to take your whole family to meet her!

  5. Thanks ladies!! The shoes are actually from Steve Madden. I got them off of ideeli for like $70! Love them to pieces – but my feet were KILLING me after the event. Not used to wearing heels anymore I guess.

  6. Vera, thanks for telling us the name of the shoes. I *think* I found them…are they really 4″ tall? Maybe it’s the way you’re standing – they didn’t look that high. They’re beautiful, but I know I couldn’t handle that height. I am a TOTAL KLUTZ!!!

      I wear really tall heels – so it might be right.:) They aren’t that bad. You get used to it
