Last weekend I found myself sitting front row of a fashion show at Macy’s, hosted by E! News Style Correspondent Robbie Laughlin. Sitting on either side of me were bloggers far more fashionable than I. There was Casey, who always looks classy and has Pinterest-worthy hair. There was Emily, who uses her superb thrifting skills to always look vintage cool. And there was Leslie, who Indianapolis Monthly once named one of Indy’s Shopperazzi, and is simply head-to-toe chic (and, compared to me, there’s a long way between her head and her toes).
Then there’s me. While I know enough to spot a pair of mom jeans a mile away, I still wouldn’t call myself fashionable. So when I was given the chance to sit down with Robbie and ask questions before the show, I was stumped and more than a little nervous. I fretted so much about what to wear I made myself late. Thankfully Leslie, a journalist at heart, asked very pertinent questions and I soaked it all in.
I watched model after pretty model strut outfits and trends that would probably never see the inside of my closet. It doesn’t matter if it’s my style or not, it’s still fun to watch. Just like flipping through a magazine, I spotted things I would definitely love to try (hello, Minnetonkas and cozy shearling vest).
Robbie and I might have very different styles and lifestyles, but we both agree on one area of fashion that can’t be overlooked: bras. Yes, you heard me. We want you to spend more time and money on the one thing no one else but you (okay, maybe you and another special someone) will see. It doesn’t matter what you put on the outside, if you’re sporting a sag underneath it will never look good.
I highly, highly recommend getting yourself to a store that sells quality bras and having yourself measured. It just might change your life. Once a year I drop close to $200 and every shred of modesty (you will get fondled – prepare yourself) to get measured and suited up. It’s worth every penny. Chances are you’re in the wrong size. Chances are your bras have done all the work they can and have given up. Chances are you’ll find a new favorite – like my new love, the Chantelle T-Shirt bra with Memory Foam (or as Mike affectionately calls it – mammary foam) that smooths, lifts and removes every chance you’ll see nipple no matter how tight or light the t-shirt. Bras can do this for you, ladies.
And chances are there’s a bra out there that will make your girls look amazing in whatever you wear, be it the latest silk patterned shirt or your favorite sweatshirt.
