POLL: Do You Have Trouble Finding A Good-Fitting Bra? (I do!!)

I could not be more frustrated about this, and I hope I’m not alone!

You all know that in the past few months I’ve been eating more healthily and incorporating exercise into my weekly routine.  It’s made such a difference in my energy level, and—bonus!— I’ve managed to lose fifteen pounds!  The bad news?  My boobs have totally shrunk, too!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still happy to look and feel healthier, but I was a pretty small-chested girl to begin with (34 B/C), so… yeah, I’m bummed.  I’ve shrunk out of all my old bras, which left me wearing sports bras for a few weeks until I finally made it Victoria’s Secret over the weekend to get fitted.

The first girl told me I was a 32 C.  I knew right away that she had no clue what she was talking about, and sure enough, the C cup was way too big (shame).  Another girl thought I was either a 34 A or a 32 B.  I tried on the A and was relieved to find that it was too small.  (I was not ready to accept that my boobs had shrunk a full cup and a half!)  I tried on the 32 B, which fit great in the cup, but not so much around my back.  The woman then told me that I was “between sizes” and would pretty much just have to deal with it.

I ended up buying a 34B, which is a little too big, but better than a sports bra… and it has some padding, so at least I can pretend that I’m the size I was a few months ago.  Am I the only one out there with bra-sizing issues?!

Have you had trouble finding good-fitting bras?  Which brands do you like best?  Have you ever changed bra sizes, like me?  Any advice for an in-between girl like myself?!  Please share your stories in the comments!

POLL: Do You Buy Used?

I was raised to believe that secondhand stores, garage sales, and flea markets were a main source of clothing/furniture/etc… and to this day I am totally into buying “vintage”.

In fact, I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had any time to scour thrift stores or hit up a rummage sale, and I’ve been missing it!  Fortunately, there are places online where you can shop secondhand.  Here are a few fun finds:

And have a happy weekend!!

POLL: How Often Do You Wear Nail Polish?

I introduced you all to my new favorite nail polish a couple weeks ago, and I think by now you all know what a fan I am of painted nails.

I have pretty weak nails, so if I don’t wear polish, they tend to break off.  Plus, I love how nail polish can add a fun punch of color to an otherwise mellow outfit.

The only problem is that I’m super weird about chipped polish.  The moment my nail polish starts to crack or chip, I pick away at it and eventually have to take it off.  Needless to say, I feel like I’m painting my nails every few days!  Even so, it’s worth the clean look and I end up having polish on my nails most of the time.

The same goes for my toes, but I change my toenail polish way less often, since it doesn’t chip as quick as my fingers…

Do you wear polish as much as I do?

How often do you wear polish on your hands?  What about your toes?  Do you leave the same color on for a while, or do you switch it up often?  Tell me in the comments!

And on a completely unrelated note… Anthropologie released a new wedding gown yesterday.  *swoooon*

How’d you answer the questions above?  Were any of them particularly easy or difficult for you?  And what are you up to this weekend?  Tell me about it in the comments!

Wedding Wednesday: Help Me Pick My Wedding Day Hairstyle!

Ok, lovely readers… I need your help!  Yesterday marked the 4 month countdown to the big day (how did that happen?!) and I’m really starting to focus in on the details.

I’m trying to pick my hairstyle for the wedding, and I’m having trouble deciding!  I’ve narrowed it down to three inspiration hairstyles, now I want you to help me choose.

Here they are:

Option 1 was my original inspiration, which I fell in love with before Travis and I even got engaged!

I stumbled onto option 2 a couple weeks ago, and loved the romantic, relaxed feel.

Option 3 is a recent look from the Cannes Film Festival… unique, right?!

Obviously I’m a fan of braids, and I’ve known from the beginning that I’d like to incorporate them into my wedding look, but now I don’t know which look I love best… help!

.

Which of these looks is your favorite?  Or do you have another hairstyle idea that I should check out?  How did you/would you wear your hair on your wedding day!  Give me your opinion in the comments!
