The first time I met Jeannie Mai, we were drinking wine and hanging out at our mutual friend’s house. I was on my way to BlissDom (2010) the next day and she was reorganizing her blog, so we bonded over the blogosphere…and our shared love of sass. I knew from my friends that she was a fashionista and hosted a show on the Style Network called How Do I Look? I gave her a hard time over her blue hair, but then I realized she used her wardrobe (and even hair) to emphasize her amazing personality. I’ve always trended toward basic and classic work attire and my weekend wardrobe is kind of meh, so before she left, I asked for some quick fashion advice.
Without skipping a beat, Jeannie looked at me and said with total authority:
“GET A BETTER BRA!”
I think I stuttered and tried to make some sort of comment that I was just happened to be wearing a utility bra that day, but then stopped and realized she was totally right. My bras were super boring and weren’t doing me any favors.
At the time I was a few pounds heavier and she made a comment that even skinny chicks with poor support look bigger around their middle than they really are…and that a great bra sets the foundation for a great outfit.
I went shopping immediately and totally spruced up my undergarment wardrobe.
And the next time I saw her, I flashed her my bewbies.
And ever since, I’ve been really secure about my girls and confident about the way I look.
And I’ve named them Pride and Joy.
SO, IN HONOR OF THE FASHION ADVICE I ALWAYS FOLLOW,
I’M HAVING A VICTORIA’S SECRET GIVEAWAY!!!
Be sure to enter by Thursday, September 27, at midnight EST.
We’ll celebrate with the winner this weekend and I hope she rushes out to buy something juicy with the gift card that I purchased just for fun. This is not a sponsored giveaway…just something wild I cooked up! (For those of you who enter the RSS item, please leave your email address in the comments below so I can verify!)
