Bellas!! I know I’ve been scarce lately but I’ve got so much going on. Today is no exception. It’s my birthday!! And every year I LOVE giving YOU a present on my special day.

Let me tell you all about the wonder of Sejour by Nordstrom. Easy, breezy, effortlessly chic clothing intended to be layered and loved by full figured fabulous women. I was blessed enough to preview the line before it hit stores, and my Sejour pieces have become key essentials in my wardrobe.

Here I’m wearing the Sejour sequined jacket which is tragically no longer available online…but their items for spring are sure to be staples if you’re looking for luxurious fabric, timeless fashion and fabulous fit. For example, LOVE the cut of this faux suede jacket.

For this special birthday giveaway, my friends at Nordstrom are providing a $100 Nordstrom gift card for one lucky Afrobella reader!
Here’s all you need to do:

1 — Click here to “like” Nordstrom Encore

2 — click here to “like” Afrobella (if you haven’t already!)

and #3 – Leave a comment with the Sejour Piece you need in your life for Spring!

This contest is open to winners in the USA only. I’m going to close this giveaway by Monday and a winner will be chosen at random next week.

Good luck bellas!! 🙂

Afrobella I need the Sejour Sandwash Drawstring Ankle Pants in my life for spring. I have a very active lifestyle, but I still like to look dressy most of the time. These pants are perfect for me this spring. The fabric is silky which gives off a dressiness,then the elastic drawstring waist lends a comfortability that is a must have for me. These pants would look cute with a tank top for day or layered with a cute blazer and some pumps for evening. Im getting these pants!

I so need that cross-hatched woven pencil skirt!! I can see it now - teamed up with either my sling-backs when it's warmer or my black leather boots with the little side bows until then. I have a whole bunch of acessories and tops that would look so good with that skirt. PLus it is the right length to show of the benefits of working out this winter-lol
