Bonobo at Mighty in SF last night was amazing. Such a great DJ -we danced all night long. For the live DJ set, I wore a beautiful handmade feather earring, dark skinny paige denim jeans, a black silk tank-top from Nordstrom, my favorite black blazer from Urban Outfitters (the BEST SF jacket for an evening out!), my gold Michael Kors watch and gold bangles from Nordstrom.
“Dance like there’s nobody watching”
How much more fun can a Monday night get then cocktails and a bra fitting by the very shabby chic bra experts – Wacoal! I was invited by my wonderful friend to join her at the “Cocktails and a Fitting” event put on by Wacoal and b.tempt’d to get a bra fitting by a Wacoal expert and take home a new bra! First and foremost, the event was hosted at the Prescott Hotel in Union Square, SF in this fabulous penthouse suite! As we entered the beautiful suite that had a very glamorous-vintage New York feel to it, we were greeted with one of the ‘bra’ experts for a personalized fitting and got to speak with Liz Smith – the National Spokesperson for Wacoal – also known as “The Bra Lady”. I had a great conversation with her about woman and bra’s and learned that we need to get fitted once a year! It had been at least two years (maybe three!) since I had my last fitting. I am guilty of taking the ‘bra shopping’ approach of ‘just knowing my size’, grabbing a new bra and out the door I go! However, we do indeed ‘change’ as we get older and it’s important to get sized once a year.
I tried on a few wonderful bra’s and found ‘the’ one (the Wacoal ‘Embrace Lace’ bra) and I’m so excited (thank you, Wacoal!) =)
In addition to learning new things and getting ‘fit’, we got to view Spring intimate apparel and shapewear pieces – including – the iPants!! Creative, right?! We were also treated to some wonderful cosmopolitans and my favorite – cheese and crackers – while we mingled amongst other food and fashion bloggers – Bowl Licker – Chictopia – Digitally Chic – Gelica Rae. As we left the event, we were handed a pink Wacoal tote bag with goodies inside – a leopard and pink travel bag and b.tempt’d compact mirror – too cute!
Lastly, from the very own Wacoal’s bra expert – Liz Smith – here are The Eight Bras Every Woman Needs – how many of these eight do you own?!
- One seamed bra
- One seamless, unlined bra
- One contour bra
- One strapless bra
- One T-Back or racerback bra
- A push-up or minimizing bra (depending on your figure type)
- One sport bra
- One drop dead sexy bra
And did you know that after washing and wearing a bra 100 times, it needs to be replaced and that 8 out of 10 woman wear the wrong sized bra?!
Enjoy the photos below and ‘stay fit’ ladies!!
Tonight I headed over to The Common in SF (Mission @ 7th Street) for the closing party of the JNBY Boutique! Gorgeous clothes and jewelry (my fav was a black leather jacket with these amazing buttons and this fun necklace – pic below!) It was a great space and event. Bar Bambino treated us to a variety of amazing desserts courtesy of their pastry chef Alyce Shields and libations by Root and Snap – delicious organic drinks mixed with your choice of apple cider or root beer – amazing! A live DJ spinning in the background, some art to browse and most importantly a fun fashion event – thanks JNBY and The Common!
