Versona Fashion Review

March 27, 2015

Contributed by Stephanie Clinton, OKWB Community Manager

It seems that March came in like a lion and went out like a lion this year.  I’m planning on April being a lamb of a month because I can not wait to put away my winter clothes.  I just can’t take any more black and grey and sweaters and leggings.  Please no more thick layers! Just when we can’t take any more cold weather, mother nature has mercy on us and gives us a new lease on spring fashion.

Versona fashionVersona was gracious enough to give a few OKWB bloggers gift cards to try out their new store in Midwest City.  Personally, I’m in love with Versona.  They have so much more than accessories and their prices are great. I decided to be a little adventurous with my gift card and get a few things that I normally would not buy and I’m so glad I did.  I’m in love with my new flowy tops and hoop earrings.  You can see the rest of my purchases on my Versona review post here.

Mari Farthing took her personal shopper to help her pick out something special and they both came away with some fabulous finds.  Find out more from Mari on her blog about not being a frumpy dresser and body image.

versona fashionWhen I visited Versona, I was impressed with the wide range of items available—from hats to shoes, tops and bottoms, accessories of all kinds—all organized and color-coordinated around the store, which cut down on the overwhelming factor that can hit when you walk into a giant store filled with great clothes and accessories.

I’ve avoided going to stores when I just don’t think I’ll find anything that will fit me, even if I’m just looking at the accessories. Finding a good range of sizes makes me feel comfortable. Finding friendly sales people no matter what sizes the store has makes me feel even better. Versona has both. On my trip to Versona, I was looking for accessories, specifically a necklace and a fun bracelet to punch up my existing wardrobe, and I found exactly what I was looking for pretty easily. The pieces are well-priced and on-trend, which makes it easy to update your wardrobe with accessories every season.

Adventures in Marriage

March 23, 2015

Contributed by Blogger of the Month Peggy Chambers

On March 22 sometime in the last century, we won’t say when—my mother-in-law brought a bouncing baby boy into this world. His brother named him. It took another 18 years, but I found my soul mate. We have been together since high school and lived, starved, raised kids, fought and mostly loved each other in the same house for a very long time. I wouldn’t be who I am today without him. He supports me in my writing and is my best critic. He edits my grammar and punctuation. He takes care of me when I have a melt down and lose my confidence and celebrates with me when I succeed.

We became parents at an early age and raised two children who grew up without too many scars, mental or physical. His second love, after his family, is hunting and nature. He took me to Africa with him in 2000 to hunt Cape buffalo. I was the photographer and believe me we have a lot of shaky footage. I have African animal heads in my dining room.

Not everyone can say that (or would want to). I would never have gone to Zimbabwe without him. What an adventure! Just another example of something new I learned because of him. March for me was lucky when he was born. I was lucky to meet the boy of my dreams in high school and stick it out this long.
