I mentioned last week I hit up the 50% off sale items at Ann Taylor. This is all I kept. Everything else was... meh. And honestly this cardigan isn't anything to write home about, but it's the sort of piece I need when working in frigid office buildings and then stepping out into sweltering city streets. It's very lightweight, a unique color that can complement colors like navy and gray, but be a fun contrast with coral and yellow, and it was cheap (think it ended up being right under $30). The only other cardigans I have is a black jeweneck and my yellow merino boyfriend style, so it's a useful wardrobe addition. It's also a color that will easily transition into fall.
I'm not even going to review the other tops I bought but am returning because none of them sucked, they just didn't seem worthy of my money for my wardrobe. Basic tees and simple tops... just not needed.
Yesterday I attended a bra fitting party and boy was it an eye opener! I hadn't been fitted since before I got pregnant and yep, I was totally wearing the wrong size bra. Don't want to ruin the story of the post I am writing about this, but let me just say if you are properly fitted, if a larger cup size is needed it can actually make you look SMALLER than a smaller cup size. I bought two bras yesterday, a pretty useful smooth molded-cup style for every day, and a much needed strapless. I bought the everyday bra in black, the strapless in nude. I really wanted to also get a day bra in nude but they were out of stock in my size. After trying these new bras I just COULDN'T wear my old ones... so today I am wearing my new strapless bra (with the detachable straps added)! I also wore it yesterday after coming home... I can't believe it, a strapless bra that lifts, separates, flatters AND is COMFORTABLE! Details soon!
