Belated Xmas Ootd and Contest Winner!

Eeep It’s already mid January and I still haven’t posted any holiday outfits. I am behind on the times. Well after I got back from my cruise I got really sick, so I decided to spend christmas day curled up in bed in my pjs hugging a kitty while my family went out. So the only christmas outfit I have is from a friend’s pot luck dinner from the beginning of the month.

Outfit Details:
Top: Express size Large
Jacket: Torrid size 1
Skirt: Etsy seller PrototypeDesign size Medium
Belt: NY & Company size XL
Tights: We Love Colors size c/d
Earrings: Lia Sophia
Necklaces: Sanrio and Lia Sophia
Bracelet: Gift from mom
Shoes: ShoeDazzle

Let’s start with this skirt; if I could, I would wear it everyday. I first saw this Miu Miu inspired skirt on tumblr and knew it had to be mine. Well I first saw these Miu Miu shoes and knew they had to be mine…but without the price tag.

So the skirt was a very happy alternative. After conversing with the owner of Prototype Designs I was able to get a skirt in my size and I was in love. It was well worth the wait. Seriously if you have not checked this shop out yet, do it now. Along with cats, there are birds, bows, polka dots, florals, scarves, and everything else you’ve been craving.

The shoes, called Aubrey, from ShoeDazzle are the highest heels I have ever owned. I hemmed and hawed over ordering them, but they are just so similar to Jeffrey Campbell’s Litas, I just couldn’t let them pass. I have to say the height wasn’t too bad. I don’t think I could wear them if I had to stand or walk for a very long time, but they were perfect for a dinner party. I got a lot of compliments too and a lot of “I could never wear such high heels.” Me neither lol, but the width of the heel and the platform helped a lot. And I got to be taller than everyone!

Be a Leading Lady in the New Year: Review and Giveaway!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday; mine was a bit of a whirlwind, but I’ll post more on that later.  But first for something more important!

Recently I was contacted by Leading Lady to review two free bras of my choosing.

Leading Lady is a premiere intimate apparel company dedicated to creating comfortably functional, remarkably affordable, stylish and easy-to-wear bras, camis and sleepwear. A family owned and operated business, Leading Lady has been expertly tailoring nursing and full figure bras for top brands and retailers across North America for more than 70 years. For the first time, Leading Lady’s comprehensive line of nursing and full figure intimates – including sexy stretch lace wire-free and underwire bras, supportive and seamless sport and yoga bras, and cozy sleep and leisure bras – can be purchased directly on

Leading Lady is proud to celebrate “Leading Ladies” everywhere through its products, programs and philanthropic activities. Leading Lady is dedicated to arming new moms with the support – physically, intellectually and emotionally – they need to nurture their babies through breastfeeding and committed to supporting a variety of organizations and issues relevant to women across the country. Follow Leading Lady on Facebook and Twitter.

My first choice was the Scallop Lace Underwire bra.

This bra has a lot of sex appeal, the peak-a-boo lace cutaway gives it a perfect vintage bedroom noir feel. But it’s not just for nighttime wear. I was pleasantly surprised at just how comfortable this bra was for longtime wear. I even wore it on a recent flight and I had no complaints, it didn’t dig into my ribs and the lightly padded straps never slipped. I am so happy with this bra; I think it has become my new favorite (not so) basic black bra.

For my second bra I decided to go for something different and chose the Molded Padded Seamless Wirefree bra.

I hardly ever wear wirefree bras, with having a larger chest they seem to make my boobs feel heavier and a lot of the times I get this weird, uncomfortable fold over thing that happens on the side of the bra. But I wanted to give this one a try because my mom refuses to wear underwire bras, so I am always on the lookout for a good wirefree one for her. And honestly I don’t think you can get any better than this one! The light molding adds the perfect amount of support so there is no heavy feeling, but they don’t add anymore bulk or change the shape of my already large chest. And after a few days of wear I am happy to report no fold over! I can’t believe I actually found a wireless bra I love!

Finding the perfect bra is so important, because we all know that if your boobs are not happy, you will not be happy. When you have a larger chest it can be so difficult to find great bras for all your boobies needs. Leading Lady seems to have us and boobies covered in all aspects of our lives. Besides the two I reviewed, they also carry sports bras in case your new year’s plan is start working out more in the new year, and comfy leisure bras for days when you just feel like relaxing, and they also have a large line of nursing bras if the new year should bring you a new surprise!

Leading Lady is also going to give one of my lucky readers a chance to be a Leading Lady in the new year with a giveaway for one free item of the winner’s choice!
