Bravissimo-Thanks Keri

A couple of weeks ago, Keri handed me the latest issue of Bravissimo's catalogue. After flipping through the catalogue and hearing all the wonderful stories from Amy and Keri herself, raving about the store, their fitting sessions, and the garments themselves, I was not passing up the opportunity of getting to at least one of their stores during our trip across the pond, no matter how many yarn stores I had to pass up.

As it happened, Frost and I went into London yesterday. The entire journey was planned around errands for me. They included Bravissimo, Loop, and Wools and Craft.

I got fitted at Bravissimo, after about an hours wait. I won't go into all the details but it's fair enough to say that I went up 2 cup sized and down 1 back size. I picked up two bras-a strapless and a simple one in my new size. Last night I wore the new bra and WOW did the girls in the front feel great. If anything I didn't feel them at all. I owe a huge hug to Keri. THANK-YOU.

At Loop, they still had their winter sale on. I was able to pick up a couple Noro books for 35% off, and four skeins of Noro Daria Multi yarn for 40% off. It has since been discontinued from the Noro line, and which I have never found in town at home.
Photos tomorrow I promise.

Wool and Crafts was an eclectic shop. The chap was very helpful yet I came away with only one pattern. No Alan Dart or Alice in Wonderland patterns.

Yeah! I went to a fancy bra store on Bloor St last summer for the first time and was totally surprised at what my size really is! Good bras are worth the big bucks, I'd been suffering in Zellers bras all these years.
