 she has my full support

ok, a shoe post is coming shortly (thanks, in no small part, to marianne, who introduced me to this new site).

but first, bras.

do you remember this? my post on the pennyrich bra patch? i got an email today from a reporter at the N&O, telling me that the owner --sally-- is apparently trying to sell her business and retire... a revelation that shocked the reporter (who is also a customer) into writing an article about sally and her store.

the reporter contacted me after discovering my blog post about the bra patch; i allowed her to interview me immediately. we talked about our mutual admiration sally, a woman who could literally size you up in 10 seconds and put you in the best-fitting bra you could have ever imagined. she is more than a saleslday... she has a gift. her working life --or at least 36 years of it-- has been spent getting women into the proper bra. she's amazing.

and now she's leaving the biz. which i find very sad.

so if you need a bra, hurry on over there. who knows when she'll get a buyer.

(the N&O article will probably run on friday.)

Xta: I'm sad. My figure isn't stable enough to warrant going over and getting a new set of bras for the girls, and I've almost decided to just go braless always.

But worse than that? Your shoe site is woefully lean in the wide width arena. Good thing, cause who can afford $624 boots?

braless?!? stewie!! say it isn't true! you would be treating your girls horribly!!

as for the shoes, i ordered 5 pairs, all size 8 wide. all were too narrow. there will be no shoe post in the immediate future. nothing to see here... move along.

I'm something just short of devestated that I didn't read the original post about bras while I was still living in North Carolina. I'm pretty sure I'm wearing the wrong size, but I'm not just going to go into any department store and have them "fit" me. I want to make sure the person knows what she's doing. Fie on moving!
