Hi everyone! Here's one long overdue story I've been keeping inside me. It's one of my happy thoughts to start the year.
Last, last Friday, AJ and I got it in our heads to wake up really early and head over to Bonifacio High Street to make the most of the La Senza sale!
(By the by, La Senza was also repsonsible for this wee, cheeky, holiday titilation here.) :D
A few things that make this trip special for me:
- This was the first time I'd ever been to Boni High Street. Most the shops there were quite high-end. Whenever I'd look around at one of the stores open at the time, I'd go into some sort of routine. Pick item up. Raise eyebrows. Inhale. Purse lips. Gingerly put item down, verrrrrrry carefully. Exhale. There.
Despite the exclusive feel to the place, the different art installations and strange water-and-stone sculptures were quite interesting to look at.
- Shopping for proper-fitting bras with the right support was something long overdue for me. Much as I love my girls, they can also present a number of interesting problems. A rather heavy and pressing one (pardon the pun) is finding the right bra size and fit. In the Philippines, a full-support 40D bra is either virtually non-existent with a number of the local brands, or costs a very pretty penny with the chosen few. It also doesn't help that my --ehem -- pride and joy have been going She-Hulk on my lady-holsters. I'm perfectly happy with inexpensive cotton panties, but my ladies need all the help they can get!
With my bras having served me well and borne the burden for a good long five years, I do think this shopping trip is in order.
- Shopping date with AJ! For the first time! Yaaaaay! :D
Lady-holsters. Learn it well.
The three pairs I picked: Dotty Pink, Pin-up Polka-dot Gray, and Pinstripe Navy. Aren't they gorgeous? Imagine my glee when the clerk said they came with matching panties too!
A view from inside the fitting room. Ooooh.
We noticed the details on the wall running parallel to the fitting room. Lovely! Then we looked up...
Aaaaah. Made me think of cool rain.
AJ perusing more pretty bras.
Raaar! "Drop and give me twenty, soldier, and say my name while you're at it." "Ma'am, yes, Ma'am!"
Oooh, as Jujubee would say it, wicked spah-kuhley! I feel a little Showgirl coming on.
Call 'em funky, call 'em stripper, there's so much sass to love!
Eye-candy pink and black.
Panties on parade! I got the bras' matching panties, plus three more thanks to an extra-special promo, courtesy of the La Senza discount card.
The usual suspects.
I really do feel very, very happy with all the goodies AJ and I bought that day. We got ourselves discount cards, just in case we found ourselves needing another pair of delectable unmentionables. This was indeed a rare treat for me. I'm not sure when I'll find myself at La Senza again, but I'd love to bring a gal pal along the next time!
The occassion and mood calls for this song, I believe:
