Come on I know we all have a pair. I wear mine nearly every day at this time of year – they are perfect for slipping on for nipping out of the house to the yard or down to the bus stop – no where too public. Yes I’m talking about Uggs – frowned on by stylists around the world, yet worn by everyone. I just put mine on to take the Halloween decorations down – yes, yes I know it’s November 7th but I’ve been busy;) They’re also perfect for nursing blistered feet after their first 6 mile run in 6 months yesterday…yes I’m hobbling around today.
I prefer the simple Classic Ugg – these are grey – but my favorite pair were the short classic in sand – I wore them out over 2 pregnancies.
Here’s my catalog pose.
Having worn my Topshop camis a few times I came to realize that I was in desperate need of a new strapless bra. I hate bra shopping. Not that I mind being measured or anything – I just really dislike spending money on something that will never be seen by anyone except by me. Having said that the results of a badly fitting bra are plain for all to see, as you will see from my photos today!
I had already tried to order 2 strapless Wonderbras from Figleaves.com but it was one of the most painful experiences ever. Firstly as Figleaves are in the UK I was charged a bank fee for my transaction – a flipping hidden fee I knew nothing about until it appeared. Then the bras never arrived and I had to deal with Figleaves’ Customer Service. I have to say they were the rudest, most patronizing, most aggressive, most evasive CS representatives I have EVER dealt with. Most unpleasant. Thank goodness I eventually got a refund – I shan’t be ordering with them again.
So that meant I was stuck with my strapless bra that I last wore pre-kids – why it was even still in my lingerie drawer I’ve no idea. Today I braced myself and headed into Victoria’s Secret – not a pleasant experience for someone who has carried and breastfed two children. Perky my boobs are not. The service in the store was fabulous. They couldn’t do enough for me and I walked out with two multi-way bras and two bandeaux bras, very happy indeed.
I’ve been suffering from a miserable head cold all week and today I needed something vibrant to wear to cheer me up. Pink was obviously the color of the day, even the lighting in the VS changing rooms was VERY pink!

I also may have popped back into Diesel to try on the Jogg Fayza jeans again. I love the Fayza’s I won on eBay – but the Jogg version, with the jersey lining, is still calling my name. I’ll just keep trying them on until I cave. If you do decide to buy be warned the come up HUGE – I tried these 25″ and they were perfect. These are the 807 wash which is a lot lighter than the 601 – I think I prefer the 601 myself.
I swear there aren’t that many creases in my cami – bad lighting again. See what I mean by the bra though? The nips were on full show for the poor guy helping me in Diesel.
Finally here’s an outfit from the other day. It got mixed reviews from the Husband. In all honesty I was going to wear a blouse with the skirt, but found a hole as I was putting it on, so quickly made the decision to try the double denim look. The husband thought the skirt was sexy but the top not so much. Oh well we all learn the hard way:)
