I've been interested in The Little Bra Company since I saw a handful of helpful reviews by my fellow bloggers (ExtraPetite and PetiteXXS) showing comparison pictures between normal department store bras and the specially-made for petite chested girls. They offer sizes starting from band size 28 to 36 and A or B cup. Make sure when you order to round up a band size though, so if you're normally a 30, a 32 should fit nicely. I've been meaning to check out the store in La Jolla but I don't have my own car at home or the guts to brave those California highways xD I'm sad to admit I haven't drive since high school ... I'm not even sure if I still remember how.
On Twitter yesterday, I saw a few ladies hype-ing a sale on ideeli (a sale similar to HauteLook). To join, click on the link or type in "pandaphilia" in the bar for invitation code when you get to the site. Yeah, super exclusive. Normally Little Bra Company bras can be pretty pricey at $50-60 a pop, but ideeli had the Lucia Lace bra for $29 (normally $58) and Isis for $24 (normally $54). That's about half off! Too much of a steal for nice petite push up bras to pass up.

I ordered a Lucia in Ivory and Isis in Nude (both in 36B) because I think light colours create the illusion of a fuller chest (that's why black pants are flattering and white pants are risky for most of us bootylicious gals). The lace creates more of a contrast with the ivory bra because I was contemplating getting Lucia in sexy black. Black just seemed to diminish fat in the area we want it ; ) Both bras have removable straps, so that should work great with a lot of the strapless dresses most of my normal bras won't hold up. The items will ship around mid-July but that didn't stop me. I have patience for money-saving opportunities :D Total came out to be $63 including $10 shipping. Not bad for two high-quality bras!
Forever 21 online sales always get me. The worst thing is that the day after I order something, they always release new things that I keep eyeing. By the time I actually make an income, I'll be too old to wear this kind of affordable trendy clothing xD I don't think too many people want to be treated by a doctor who dons military jackets and peeptoe oxford pumps.
You guys know I'm a sucker for kawaii things. Pandas and bows are my ultimate weakness. I just wanted to buy enough items I really loved for free shipping and soothe my clothing cravings.
Today, this top caught my eye. It's from Forever 21 Twist's new collection: a military-inspired set. I absolutely love the bold shoulders and would wear this unbuttoned over something else.
