what i wore {orange lips & Wacoal - do you know your size?!}

this week has been very full.  my younger cousin has been here visiting so we have been doing lots of Seattle attractions {including major shopping!}.  also had the privilege to attend a Wacoal Bra event.  and a 90th birthday party.  so this ones gonna be a little lengthy.

outift #1 Seattle Aquarium date.  so I have completely fallen for my red lipstick, I love wearing it, but I feel there are times when glossy red smackers is too much?  case in point, the aquarium with my kiddos.  so I went into Sephora looking for something with a little less wattage, but this lovely gal Kali who helped me had the most fabulous orange matte lips.  so what do you think I ended up purchasing...  does it look too much like a popsicle?  I'm digging it utterly.

sorta sweatshirt - this was from shopruche.com  {but no longer available, sadly.  I would buy it in every color if it ever returns.  favorite.}
gray tanktop - H&M {like a 5$ purchase that has gotten TONS of mileage.}
jeans - H&M {just bought for 10$}
sandals - oldies from Sam Edelman, Endless.com 
earrings - Lucia K. Jessica

outfit #2 - Yiaya Papya's {greek for grandma and something about ducklings} 90th birthday party.  amazing woman with an amazing family legacy.  love my in-laws seriously.  remember this skirt? 

shirt - oldie from Anthropologie
skirt - Anthropologie
shoes - Frye, endless.com

 close up shot of the jewels.

outfit #3 - Wacoal event with Skinnypurse {at the chic Pan Pacific Hotel Seattle}.  it was so nice to be high above the evening traffic having tasty bites and drinks, viewing lovely lacy items, with a good friend, and meeting other great Seattle gals.  such a treat.

first of all, ladies - do you know your correct bra size??  meaning you have gotten fitted by an expert, here's the thing, there is a difference between a 32C and a 34B.  so many woman wear the wrong size and this makes such a difference in fit and comfort.  nordstrom is my preference for fitting - do it! 

did you know they have a shapewear line?  and a younger-minded b'tempt.d as well?  they do such a great job of mixing quality and comfort with price and style.  was so impressed!

these are my favorite styles, a little vintage touch in a bright lace.  but of course.

and loved this one for its small details in a great fitting black bra.

this was my pick for an every day bra.  was ridiculously comfortable but still cute.  {its now in my closet I liked it so much.}

this for some sweet sass.

this for a touch of vintage vixen.

here's what I wore...

tank top -- Weston Wear, Queen Anne Dispatch
jeans - Pilco and the Letterpress, Anthropologie 
bracelets - Lucia K. Monogram collection and leather wrap {not on site}

linking up with Pleated Poppy for what i wore.

Happy 4th of July, hope you all have the chance to celebrate our independence and cherish this country we live in for all that makes it beautiful.
