Weekend Recap

That's my favorite scarf that I mentioned last week. Also, that outfit is going to become my 'winter outfit' because I have no clothes. Seriously. I went shopping this past weekend and tried on at least 10 tops at Khol's and left with nothing. I need Stacy and Clinton. And $5000.

That poor girl in the picture has no idea that in a couple hours she will be fighting back tears outside of Victoria's Secret. I'm sure the past 20 bras I've had, have come from Walmart. In fact, I just bought one from there a few weeks ago. I like everything about it, except you can see the top lines of the cups through my shirts. I decided to go to Victoria's Secret because I wanted a 'professional' to pick out the perfect bra for me that meets all of my criteria (secret criteria will not be divulged for the whole internet to see!). Also, I have never been fitted and I'm always hearing about all these women wearing the wrong bra size. I think even Oprah did a show about it. I couldn't find anyone to help me (it was so crowded in there), so I grabbed one I thought I might like and stood by the dressing rooms. Someone finally came by to open a door for me and she gave me a quick measure - same size I thought I was. The one I picked out was fine, I just didn't know if there was a better one out there, so I went to look. I guess the fact that it was so crowded, there were a zillion choices of bras, and no one was available to help me just sent me over the edge a little bit and I walked out feeling completely frustrated. That's when I had my mini-meltdown. After talking to Billy I decided to try again. We both went in, I grabbed a few more bras, Billy caught a sales lady passing by and asked if I could get a dressing room. I'm going to assume that she didn't know what he said because she just kind of chuckled and moved on. I said, "See how hard it is? No one is paying attention to me!" Long story short (too late), I ended up getting the first bra I tried on. This thing better last because I'm not going bra shopping for a long, long time.

That was the low part of my weekend. The high was laying on the couch in my pjs, eating popcorn, and watching Sex and the City reruns.

Did everyone else have a good (no-stressful-bra-shopping) weekend?

I was one of those women wearing the wrong size and am loving my new $11 racerback (sp?) from Walmart! Do not go to VS on a Saturday!

I hate bra shopping. I can never find one that fits the way I want it to fit. :( And hardly ANYONE carries my size. it really pisses me off.

I'm right there with you. $5000 would be nice. ;) haha!

Cute winter outfit! I Love it! I hate Victoria's Secret--I always feel like I'm fighting people just to buy a simple pair of underwear! Although they have really cute stuff it's almost worth it!

I keep walking around looking crappie hoping that Stacy and Clinton will notice me. :)

I hate bra shopping and the ones I am wearing are ugly but comfy but I would be embarassed if anyone saw them.

I love bra shopping its finding the shop assistants to help you though. That seems harder to come by. I think everyone is in the same boat about the $5,000 - oh well we can window shop I guess.

I hate bra shopping as well. Once I finally find one I like, I buy as many in my size as I can find so I can procrastinate the next shopping trip for as long as possible, even if they're all in beige. They NEVER have enough in my size. I had one of those VS women help me once. Turns out I was wearing the wrong size as well.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and entering my giveaway. Do you have a Nordstroms around you, by any chance? They are incredible about helping you pick out the perfect, custom bra. I highly recommended it!
