Gorgeous bra update/ OOTD

The review for the bra can be found here >> Gorgeous bra by Debenhams.

So I wore this bra today, as I needed to go to a CPR class for 4 hours, but had nothing else planned for the day. And I figured why not wear a bra I haven’t worn yet, since I was only going to be out a few hours.

Everything about the bra was comfortable except for the gore. This bra is probably the softest I own. The straps seem really wide, but they don’t dig in. The wire is fine, the band is fine, the freaking gore, man.

The bottom of the gore doesn’t tack, it’s very slight, but I’m aware of it. The top of the gore tacks. But it apparently pushes down on my sternum. I think there’s two reasons for this.

I don’t have a lot of cushioning there.

The gore is wider than the space between my breasts.

You can imagine how fun it was doing chest compressions with a stabby gore.

When I got home, the gore was really irritating me, so I tucked the top of my shirt into the gore. And I left it like that. Hours later when I saw my brother he said, “there’s something going on with your shirt. Maybe you want to fix that.”

Speaking of my brother….

When I got dressed today I pretty much put,on the first thing I saw. Which was a camo top from Zulily ($3.99), and a pair of boyfriend jeans from The Loft, under their Lou & Grey line. Ordinarily, I hate boyfriend jeans. They don’t do anything or my shape at all. Baggy/loose fitting clothing does nothing for my shape period. But boyfriend jeans tend to flatten my butt. This particular pair doesn’t. These jeans when I wear with a belt really just come across as looking like a mid-rise jean with a looser fitting thigh (not baggy though). This was kind of the look I was going for, minus the mid rise. I like low rise jeans. I really just bought these jeans because I loved the distressing, and they weren’t baggy on the model on the website. Lately with jeans from the Loft, I’ve been needing to get 24 curvy petite. The few 24Ps that I have (in the regular denim, not the colored denim) are… rather tight. Not uncomfortable tight, but butt flattening tight. In my experience, the clothing from the ‘full retail’ Loft doesn’t stretch out like the jeans from the outlet store- which means my non curvy 24p are too small.

Yes I’m outside barefoot

Anyway, when my brother and I went to take his daughter to the Dr, he was walking behind me and he so nicely commented, “Those jeans make your butt look flat” 😡

Does my butt look flat to you? 😏

This outfit fits 2 out of the 3 things that I love when it comes to clothing: camo/army print & distressed jeans (the third being houndstooth)

My outfit was 🔥🔥

Don’t laugh at my title, lol.

Today, I’m going to talk about my outfit from yesterday (since it’s 1:45est). I’m going to try to make this short, but is know it won’t be.

I wanted to leave for work at 2, so that I could stop and get some food. I’ve been so lazy the past couple of days, and it’s been so hot, that I have t cooked anything. The food at the food court where I work is very expensive. A “filling” meal will cost at least $9. So I decided to get penne aka vodka, because it costs $11.25.  Sounds like a lot, but it’s enough for 3 meals.

I wake up, eat, shower, and put a load of clothing in the washing machine. Then I go back to sleep at 10:45am, because I was very tired. I wake up around 1:20. I start looking around for something to wear to work.

My job has a dress code, either we can wear current product, or we can wear all black. Seeing as how I plan on leaving my job soon, I stopped buying stuff unless I absolutely NEED it, and even then I try to wait until it’s cheap. So just about everyday when I got to work, I look like I’m going to a funeral. All black everything. Today’s as obviously going to be no different. Every so often I do rebel, and wear clothing from previous seasons, but that normally requires me to think of the outfit ahead of time, which I didn’t do. I start looking through my clothes, and coming up with reasons for not wearing something. It needs to be ironed-not wearing it. It’s shorter than when I feel like wearing- not wearing it. It’s longer than what I feel like wearing- not wearing it. I had a maxi dress that I wanted to wear- it’s cute, but it’s like a tube top, I need a strapless bra. All my strapless bras are 32Cs, and require me to constantly pull them up, because that band size is too big, and I haven’t found a strapless 28/30 banded bra. So that was out of the picture. All of the black clothing that I washed before I went to sleep was also out of the picture, because it wasn’t going to be dry by 2:00. I end up putting two random pieces together.

A black top I got from H&M earlier this year (still had the tags on), and a lacy high waisted skirt that I got from target about two years ago, also new with tags. I bought the skirt, because the store I work for had a pair of pants that looked exactly the same (I bought the pants- this is how I know how long ago I bought the skirt).

 

 

I really didn’t think it was going to go together, but it ended up looking very cute.

 

 

I really hate that the bra I chose to wear was visible at the sides.

The bad thing about the skirt, is that there wasn’t a slit at the bottom, so I couldn’t really open my legs that much. I guess this skirt was telling me to be more ladylike.

This is how wide I was able to open my legs. 😅
