This year, I am simplifying and shopping local. Admittedly, there will always be things I have to go online for, or possibly (dread upon dread) to a mall for. But shopping locally makes me feel like I am giving in two ways:
1. I am supporting the small businesses around me, which feels amazing and I wish I could do more often.
2. I am finding small, quality gifts instead of a mass of generic, bath&body style pre-packaged gifts.
Plus, everyone loves opening a box from a small shop. It makes them feel more special, which is the best gift of all.

If you tend to wear black bras daily, purchase lots of black bottoms (multiple styles and labels) to match effortlessly.
When you buy a special color bra (teal, orange, pink floral) make sure to buy two matching bottoms--because you may wear your bra two days before washing it, but not your panties!

Step 1: Empty your panty drawer on to your bed or floor.
Step 2: Make two piles: 1-those with stains or holes, 2-the rest.
Step 3: Throw away pile 1! You need not be tempted to ever reach for those panties, again!
Step 4: Replenish your underwear drawer by treating yourself to some new, pristine panties from your favorite shop or brand.
(ahem, Bellefleur perhaps?)

If you can't stand underwire in your bra, opt for a supportive soft bra sans wire. Game on!

I recently heard Joan London speak (cool woman!), and she touted the attitude of "yes". If she hadn't said yes to the fortuitous offer of being a weather girl, she wouldn't have been on television, nor a beloved, household name.
So, say YES! If anyone offers you anything today, say yes. No matter what.
Refill of coffee? Yes, please.
Spare a quarter? Why not.
Can I take you to dinner Saturday night? Sure!
Take a job in Paris? Oui!

"My husband gave me a gift certificate to Bellefleur for Valentine's Day. I was very nervous about going to a lingerie boutique (she told me she cried when he gave her the gift cert). My body has changed over the years, and I had to confront my negative self image. I pictured myself in the dressing room in tears, unable to find anything to make me look attractive.
Then, I read your book (Underneath It All!!). The information on body types and suggestions for styles to flatter each gave me the confidence to venture in to Bellefleur. Within minutes, you had me at ease. You kept handing me different fun things to try. The whole experience was very enjoyable (she was in the shop for nearly 3 hours, trying on everything from basic t-shirt bras to sexy, dress up babydolls!).
I now consider my lingerie an integral part of every outfit (good!). Whether I am dressed casually or for work, I have something pretty and matching on "underneath it all"! (thanks for the plug!)

I just had to share my mention in February's InStyle magazine! Page 118, Clean Thoughts. Yep, the fashion bible used moi (und UIA book) as a source!
Also, not to toot my own horn, but Bellefleur was in the latest issue of People magazine (Style Watch). They touted our Panty of the Month program! We are famous!
Cheers to a very exciting 2010!
I have recently been chatting up an old friend from high school on Facebook. She really wanted a copy of Underneath It All, so I sent her one. The messages that ensued from there are hilarious.
Her: I read your bra life expectancy. omg, I keep them till they dirty and shredding, how sad is that. And how sad is that I don't have any matching anything. This book is inspiring me…
Me: I tell her she really needs to get a bra fitting and get some new bras. She decides to sort out what she has.
Her: Okay, I am left with 3 bras: a sports bra with a hole, my racerback and a black bra that fits too tight. Oops, make that 4, I have a hand me down from my husband's Aunt which I put an extra extension on to try to make it work. My left boob overflows…
Me: I tell her to destroy her bra with the hole in it. I don’t specify how.
Her: Done, literally just threw it in the wood stove, never burned a bra before, it really got going I had to damper down the stove.
While my good friend from years past (I won’t mention how many years) is on the road to recovery, I know that lots of you need bra or underwear interventions yourself. I would love to hear your stories about the good, bad and ugly parts of your lingerie wardrobe. Malfunctions, successful purchases or scenarios. Anything. Email them to me: firstname.lastname@example.org. Let me know if I can post them in the blog and whether or not I should use your name.
