I am at a lost for words today. Recently, I moved. The pain and frustration of packing, downsizing and finding good help can be too much. There’s a lot of fussing about all the s#!% you have, the s#!% you need to get rid of & the reason it’s taking you so long to move from one place to another. The main area of interest when I move is MY BEDROOM… Full of all the things us women & girls love shoes, bags, jewelry and CLOTHES. I won’t even mention the 36 coats of mine that need their own car and caregiver. (These are my real babies, Lol) Everything is packed with care as NOT to destroy anything. I mean it took us a long time to accumulate this stuff & it all means so much to us. RIGHT?!?!?! I carefully planned my way out of the room as not to leave an extra button or bangle behind on the floor. In this orchestration in decided to remove my undergarments from the wooden truck that I store them in. Allowing the chest not to be weighed down by the load inside. So, as I was preparing to go out last night I began to look for one of my INCREDIBLE bras from Victoria’s Secret (VS). I ripped through every bag and box only to find…. NOTHING!!!
My heart fell into my feet… All the years, money and support gone. It was then that I remembered that I may have forgotten them as the “HELP” packed my things. Some people are not understanding my hurt. I don’t do drugs, I drink socially and have never even thought about smoking a cigarette. Victoria’s Secret bras and panties are my narcotic. I live for lace, animal print, nice color combinations and satin. Valued customer for 8 years now, it’s all I wear. Dont get me wrong it’s nice for others to see but it’s mainly for me. I feel that I deserve to wear good undergarments, I’m a grown woman. Pack underwear is for little girls. I tossed and turned all night long… Thinking about the Biofits, Body by Victoria, Sexy Little Things, Incredible and Very Sexy items I had to replace. So when I couldn’t take it anymore… I reached for my trusty notebook and got online. To replace what was lost. First of all, only two of the lost were available for purchase. That’s when I became even more frustrated, but I realized I had to let it go and find NEW flavors. The final damage of the 1st round of picks $293. That included 7 bras and 5 panties. I snagged a few that were on clearance and searched out the matching partners. The new Fabulous in lace will be in the box when it gets to the house. I did manage to hold on to 11 of them. Only because I had packed a bag for me to live out of until I was settled. However, some of the panties of the lost ones are still with me… I can’t stand to look at them. Cutest thing about this whole situation was my mom and friends reaction to it. She said ” I know they may have cost you a lot of money but think about it.. It could’ve been worse you could have lost your TV, computer or anything of real value.” My look told her those things were after thoughts to the drawers, Lol My friend took a different approach and took me to breakfast and secondhand shopping. When we pulled back up to the house, all I could think of was my missing panties and bras. Smh
Unfortunately, the next Semi-Annual Sale takes place in January. (Always remember this happens in January & June, the beginning & halfway mark of the year 😉 ) So I can’t go wild in the stores until then. However, as a valued loyal customer, I receive coupons and promotions all the time. Great Lakes Crossing features a VS outlet store which is a real treat on the purse and finding things that weren’t so popular. Not to mention, I called VS and told them my horrid story and they offered me a coupon to assist me on my mission of sexiness and confidence. Gotta LOVE them for that!!!
I know this may NOT be a big thing to anybody else, but it’s a HUGE thing to me. Holding my head up and continuing to :), is all I can do even though I’m dying on the inside. You all have a great rest of the weekend and hold on to what you have.. You never miss it ’til it’s GONE.
