Spice Up Your Style in Old Navy Dresses this Fall! Review

I am a proud member of the Style Council on Crowdtap. From time to time they do sample shares where they allow you to get an item(s) of clothing and try them out. They also include coupons for so many friends. This particular sample share included a coupon for myself and one for a friend to get a dress at Old Navy.

There were a lot of different styles right now. I was glad to see some long sleeved dresses for the holidays and loved that a lot of them came with belts. They were very figure flattering too. I still have a bit of baby weight to lose so giving the image of a new waist is important. I tried on this black dress and fell in love. I like that it can go to any size really. You control how tight it is by the ties.

Next there was this Purple dress, which I bought in addition to the black dress. I loved the little belt and I thought there was a lot I could do with this dress such as dress it up in scarves or even gaudy jewelry. Heck I was even thinking by itself it looked really sophisticated and I could see myself at any holiday party it this purple gem.

My friend and partner in crime chose a dress like my purple one. Melina, chose black. It really makes her look very stylish.

We had a hard time sticking to dresses once in the store. They were stalking as I shopped. Here was a few dresses that were also on the hangers!

I love being a part of Crowdtap and I really think if you have not had a chance to join, you should. Especially if you like earning gift cards, having a voice and doing sample shares!

I had the pleasure to review some great products from Parnevu. The Three products I got to try was :

The PARNEVU Salon Shampoo, a pH-balanced and specially formulated cleanser for your hair and scalp that rids the hair of oil buildup without stripping. A unique formula that uses gentle cleansing agents derived from coconut oils and palm nuts to effectively remove grease from the hair and scalp. Natural moisturizers penetrate the hair to replace and lock in vital moisture lost due to chemical damage and everyday styling, leaving hair soft and manageable. I have to say this was my favorite of the three. I got really excellent results using the PARNEVU Salon Shampoo. The scent was intoxicating and really left hair soft, manageable and smooth.

PARNEVU After-Shampoo Conditioner is a unique blend of 14 conditioning agents that absorbs quickly into your hair to restore moisture, and to improve body, strength, and manageability.

The vitamin enriched formula penetrates the cuticle and absorbs deep into the hair's cortex to repair damage. Rich emollients provide moisture to the hair shaft and protects against heat-based styling damage.
I think this product gave me the most moisture. I did not have a flyaway and I felt this product locked in the scent in my hair where I could smell it. I do enjoy when a conditioner can provide you with a scent that last longer than the shower.

My last product I got to try was PARNEVU Shining Gel. This product adds that extra control to help hard-to- hold styles in place while leaving your hair beautifully shiny. Unique formula gives long lasting style and gloss combined with moisturizers and conditioners that leave the hair manageable, full of body and extra sheen without flaking. PARNEVU Shining Gel assures greater control, deeper penetration, and the style you dare to create.
I really don't know how to describe it any better than what the website has for this gem. Its long lasting and I noticed that it is a very hard working product that stays on your hair till you wash it. That is a product that goes the distance and if you are having issues because of the fall weather, I will say you will NOT have flyaways using this Shining Gel.

My final verdict on PARNEVU products. They do what they say. If you have the extra dry hair this product is for you. I think someone who has thick hair that gets frizzy, or have flyaways to the extreme...this is for you. If you are someone who needs moisture because of the fall season and need a good deep cleaning, I totally recommend that PARNEVU Salon Shampoo. For a full experience don't forget the Conditioner. They are a really fair and reasonable price for all the products! I really enjoyed getting to try the products out and think its worth a try.
