Today is a happy day at work. I found out that next year, I can spend 11.5% more on shoes, dresses, and junk food!!!! Oh, and probably alcohol. Though I’ll try to find poor, unsuspecting men to pick up those tabs.
Anyway, I got my first raise at work and I am so excited. It’s a beautiful thing. I have been through a fair amount this year, so the fact that I have kept up with my workload is kind of astonishing.
Under normal circumstances, I would certainly run out and spend the money I don’t have yet in celebration. However, if you recall, I had a rather successful (read: expensive) trip in NYC recently. So instead, I will share with you a few older purchases that I will definitely wear in celebration. These pieces are not from my Aritzia binge, they are from a separate shopping binge that I was too embarrassed to admit to after spending $685 the previous day (back in those days when I made less money).
Between NYC boys #1 & #2, I came to an important realization: now that I am single, I need cuter bras. Being an action-oriented individual, I took a short break from work and walked myself down to the closest lingerie store – Sugar Cookies NYC. I’ll be honest… their slogan, “cover your pink parts,” made me think it was going to be really shady and a little kinky. How wrong I was. Twenty minutes later, I walked out with $400 of new lingerie. Damn, those salespeople are good.
Here are some highlights that will be hiding under my clothes, secretly boosting my confidence in the coming days. I have included some supplemental clothes that I am coveting as well… I guess a girl needs those, too. All of the clothes come from the online love of my life, shopruche.com. Their stuff is modern-vintage and just my style. Love.
Red is the sexiest color. I wouldn’t mind wearing this with a sheer-backed number. Oh my gosh, you can see how cute my bra is? I totally didn’t know that. So embarrassing…
A pretty lace bra can make a blah day at work feel much sexier than it actually is. And we all need a little sexy in our lives.
Bold colors are so good on brunettes. In this scenario, I get to wear one on a date, and a different one after the date! Score.
So those are my beautiful new bras, paired with clothes that I will probably impulse purchase the next time I get laid. Damn hormones.
Everyone make an unnecessary purchase in celebration of my raise!!! I won’t pay for it, but I’ll think of you.
