****Still Blonde after all these YEARS , Modly Chic, K Squared Glamour , Fall Fashionista Events Giveaway or the Fall Fashionista Events Giveaway bloggers are not responsible for sponsors/bloggers that do not fulfill their prizes or for any product failure or harm caused thereby. I received a complimentary outfit from In Bloom by Jonquil in exchange for the following feature. No further compensation was received. All photos below are property of Momma Told ME Blog 2013.
Welcome to the Fall Fashionista Giveaway Event, hosted by The Chief Blonde at Still Blonde After All These Years and Katy from  ModlyChic with  K Squared Glamour as our co-host!   This is the web's only All Fashion, Only FASHION blogging event, with $26,000+ in prizes, 100+ participating blogs and 3/4 million entries.  Each individual blog has a minimum of $125 prize, and Momma Told Me has worked hard to bring you 2 bundles exceeding that value!

Our first Fashionista Events sponsor is classified as a lingerie company; though their vintage inspired romantic fashions are hardly the skimpy pajamas one typically associates with the term. In fact, In Bloom by Jonquil was inspired by the Silent Film era actress Aunt and illustrator grandmother of Diane Samandi, who introduced the collection in 1980 as bathing suits were quickly dwindling to 'dresses' and dresses quickly became 'lingerie.' You may recognize the Jonquil name from collections featured exclusively at high end retailers such as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue, featuring bridal lingerie ripped from the covers of romance novels. In 2007 Diane's European inspired designs were infused with a more flirty and playful range of patterns, colors, and designs, when the In Bloom collection was released. Featuring a new proprietary molded cup, and a touch of feminine grace, the In Bloom collection has been on my radar for years.

It's hard to imagine In Bloom by Jonquil as 'lingerie,' a word that is usually reserved for fashions meant to be kept behind closed doors. While Jonquil does have a variety of Bridal pieces intended to ignite passion, each and every piece is tastefully done with femininity and whimsy. In Bloom has a wide range of Chemises, Babydolls, and Robes in the Playwear collection, and a range of designs within the Loungewear category I have a hard time deciding between. The fabrics are rich and soft, with designs full of flattering cuts, gentle lace accents, and playful prints. I could see myself in nearly any of the Loungewear pieces while wandering down the walk to grab the mail, or lounging by the pool. For example, the Caramel collection features a maxi dress to a racerback top and tunic; with bold stripes and vibrant colors that scream my locale, Southern California.
In Bloom by Jonquil
For my Fall Fashionista feature I selected the Boho Stripe Lounge Set and Bathrobe, less than $100 together, which paired bold stripes and floral polka dots in a monochromatic palette. I recall, a friend of mine, had once told me that she wished she had a wardrobe full of In Bloom apparel, so she could literally live in it. At the time I thought her certifiable, until I unwrapped that delicate pink tissue paper and my fingers met the fabric for first touch. The polyester Spandex blend is impressively breathable and soft, while accentuating the form and minimizing problem areas with asymmetrical cuts. As a full busted woman I often struggle with sizing, especially in loungewear 'sets' that are meant to fit a standard size. My bust simply doesn't line up with my pants size ordinarily. Thankfully, the drawstring waist, and light formfitting crop top played perfectly with my assets.
In Bloom by Jonquil
Boho Sripe Set
The back of the  Boho Stripe Racer Back top is beautifully detailed with a floral lace panel that offers a peek-a-boo effect, while will remaining romantic and classy. Both the robe and lounge pants have wide, flowing, sleeves and legs that help keep the wearer cool and make me feel almost as though I'm wearing a silk dress. I admit to 'trying on' this outfit prior to my photoshoot and wearing it all day with an adamant refusal to take it off. I'm not sure I've ever owned an outfit so comfortable, and great for my confidence, as this Boho Stripe In Bloom Set. I am a pajama junkie, and can often be seen in yoga pants or booty shorts, when lounging around the house, but In Bloom has converted me to a casual fashionista. The only downside to In Bloom by Jonquil? Deciding which pieces to collect first- the fashions are constantly changing, and sell out often, so be sure to grab the set you love when you see it!
Whether you're getting married soon, have recently dropped those last few pounds, or simply feel you deserve a little pampering, indulge with a piece, or two, from the In Bloom by Jonquil collection and experience feminine fashion at it's finest! In Bloom redefines lingerie and loungewear by returning to an era of elegance and understated sex appeal.
