So, I really needed to boost my spirits because I have been down in the dumps for a long time now (obviously).
We have an out-of-town wedding next weekend. I thought I would buy some sexy lingerie, that should boost my spirits - and I am sure the "spirit" of my husband.
Now - you have to know that I am not your run of the mill Victoria Secrect (VS) size person. While I wish I could just go to VS and just buy something - lord knows that is not really possible. Seriously, I totally envy the gal that can go into any store - you know ANY store - and just buy something off the rack. Possibily without even trying it on. Not me.
I am VERY big in the upper area - all my bras are custom ordered through a speciality lingerie shop. So, it is not like I can just go into any store and find something I like.
I decided to go to my trusty friend, you know, Google. I type in my zip code and lingerie. Got a couple of hits too. One even said that they have in stock all sizes from petite to plus. JACKPOT!
I live in Tim-Buck-To, NJ so I know every place will be a drive. I pick two that are about an hour away. I google the directions and I am off.
The first place is 46 miles from my house, I follow the directions to a tee. The last set of directions brings me to a wearhouise section. Basically all loading docs, etc. I look for the address and it is NOT a lingerie store. OK, maybe I should have called.
The second one is on my way home. Um....I guess I just have some bad luck. Store is closed. And not closed for the day closed, closed as in not in business closed.
There is a woman having a cig outside the store adjacent to the lingerie store. She tells me they have been out of business for a while. I guess I say under my breath (but out loud), I just drove 70 miles for nothing.
She invites me into her store (Real Estate Co) and she draws me a map and tells me other places where I might have some luck. OMG - how super nice is that.
I took her advice and found a really cute somewhat sexy piece at L.ane B.ryant. I looked on-line to see if there was a picture, but it is not on the website.
Lingerie is really a treat for me and my husband of course. I hardly ever wear it. But, I figured we really need some sexy time and not sex only for baby making time. We are staying at a hotel - so I thought that would be the perfect time to bring sexy back.
