Because this is the closest you will probably ever get to seeing me in my unmentionables...

Last night I had a new first experience and got to share it with a couple of girlfriends. As you get older and if you have been challenging yourself, there tend to be fewer 'new' or 'first' experiences so it's always fun to break out of the routine and do something different. Thankfully the world is still a big enough place that I hope not to run out of new first experiences any time soon (I plan to live a long time and maintain a healthy sense of adventure.).

A friend had gone to a charitable function where she bid on a private party at a fine lingerie boutique in Tampa's Hyde Park: The Pink Petticoat operated by Lesley Geyer.

I was impressed with the sheer genius of the marketing of the party and gladly accepted the invitation (up to 10 for 2 hours of private shopping, complete with rereshments and decadent desserts, plus 20% discounted off any purchases that evening).

Bras and Panties don't take up a lot of room so this shop is able to stock quite a variety of beautiful and comfortable things to don. Amazingly they had my size in stock. Usually only Nordy's can do that and they are a big box store.

After trying on half the contents of the shop (you WILL want one of Everything) here's my score (for all you Divas and Drag queens that wanna copy my swagger):

All 7 of the deadly sins!

These Besty Johnson bras are flirty fun, affordable, and so well fitted!

The honeydew panty set looks outrageous on - and it was ON SALE! The set was $33.

Just not feeling it

I've been much neglecting my poor blog. A million excuses. But it's time to regroup!

First of all i need to decide if I should keep that wallpaper photo of myself up or not. I kinda like it because it is a marker for me, but it is no longer current....maybe that is not important?

My dancing hobby is undergoing a transformation and I am in a bit of limbo. I started taking Argentine Tango with Simone and absolutely love the dance, her technique and teaching methods. If you are looking to try something new I highly reccommend it!

On the summer horizion:
Raid Cathy's Closet - this is a party I throw at the house where everyone invited is asked to bring anything gently worn to exchange with other guests and everything left over gets donated to local charity of my choice. It's a great way to clear the closet each season. No one minds giving that expensive item they have only worn once to a bestie, but they usually have a hard time putting it in the donation pile and dropping it off at the charity themselves. The girls get together (all sizes and shapes) and mingle - a great way to introduce all the people you know to one another, and everyone leaves excited with their new found free items. And in this economy free aint bad.

I am encouraging you all to go out and support your local businesses, especially the little guys that you would miss if they were not around. Everyone I know who is self employed seems to be having a very difficult time. Pay cash rather than credit as the extra 3% is going to help.

Lastly a ballroom gown that I am trying to help a friend sell. Post for details, thanks!
