while still buying decent fitting and pretty undergarments
has been a bit of a tedious job.
Fortunately I found some great basics at Sears and Marshall's
and they were purchased at budget friendly prices.
My all time favourite rose
Jude the Obscure is in full bloom out front in the garden.
I would love a soft peach blush bra and pantie set.
This Bali bra was found at Marshall's for just under $20.
It is a serious workhorse in the undergarment world!
Thank goodness for the architects of bras!
The "granny panties" are by Jessica from Sears.
The lace is pretty and the stitched panels help keep the wobbly bits in check!
I purchased 6 of these and I usually hand wash and hang to dry all my lingerie as it lasts much longer that way.
These were very reasonably priced...I cannot remember exactly what I paid for them but I think all 6 were about $35.
I feel very feminine when I am wearing nice lingerie.
Do you read Jennifer's blog "A Well Styled Life?"
She recently wrote a post about granny panties.
You can read it here.
The Eres panties she used in her post cost a LOT of money!
Can you guess how much they cost?
$255 a pair!
Would you pay that for a pair of granny panties?
I suppose if money grew on trees I might but alas it does not and I am very mindful of expenditures since retiring.
My poor sister was thrown off her horse when they rode through a wasp nest on The Galloping Goose trail near Metchosin.
She sustained complex fractures in her arm that requited plates and pins and she is now recovering at home.
I made a tasty quinoa bean salad from the Whitewater Cookbook for her...
and I'll bring a rose bouquet, chocolates and magazines.
We plan to go out for lunch and I will be the driver as she has her arm in a cast and will be wearing that cast for about 8 weeks.
She is already going squirrelly at home...
it must be so frustrating
I totally empathize.
I'll do my best to cheer her up.
My morning espresso was wearing a Happy Face today!
Hope that you have a great weekend.
