Shopping all day

I spent the day shopping with a friend. It was great fun; we went to a number of stores, had lunch, and chatted about everything. I had a great time! Our first stop was Vicanie's, our favourite lingerie store. I've been going there for a number of years now and even though I hadn't been there in a couple of years, the owner still remembered me! Now *that's* great service. They have bras in tons of sizes and lots of pretty ones, too, as well as swimwear and nightwear. If you're in Guelph or Waterloo, I highly recommend the store.

You might remember me saying that I didn't think I was all that well-endowed. Well, it turns out that I was wrong and my sisters were right - I'm definitely more endowed than I used to be. The staff at the store did a bra fitting for me and it turns out that I've gone up one band size and one cup size. I was amazed at the size of the girls when I'm wearing a bra in the correct size. This isn't a bad thing, really, because my butt is also big, so at least now they'll be better balanced.

I was able to get two bra-and-panty sets on sale in my new and improved size. At another store, I also bought the cutest little waist-length black cardigan with 3/4-length sleeves, charcoal round buttons, fur trim on the peter pan collar, and wool lace and sequin trim beside the buttons. It is soooo adorable!!!! It'll be perfect with pencil skirts and the vintage dresses I'm making for the colder months.

Now I just need to find another waist-length, 3/4-length sleeve, light-coloured cardigan for summer. I could make a bolero to match each summer dress I'll be making... but that seems like a lot of work. I don't object to making one bolero that matches a lot of things, but I don't want to make more than two, so I'll be needing a cardigan as well.

All in all, it was a very fun and productive shopping day. And because we bought everything on sale, we didn't even spend that much - yippee :)
