Wrapped up in Norway

It’s been a loooong time since my last post. I am sorry for the silence but there are few things that I could review and there weren’t any profound thoughts I could share. Without further ado I present to you – Norway.

Unfortunately no, I was not able to enjoy the splendours of Norway but I was finally able to wrap in Norway, DD-Atelier’s wool-blend (80%) coat, as the temperatures in the UK finally dropped below 10°C. For too long it has been hanging behind my door.

Buttons and Snap

I almost can’t believe it. I never envisioned myself liking a button-up shirt this much. What I’m talking about is the Sicilia from DD-Atelier in red and grey.

One of the buttons is a snap-on button. I think DD-Atelier has a love affair with them.

Basic T-shirts for Summer and also BOOBS

**EDIT: Slight blurry pictures added!

[With what feels like ages since my last post I have become a bit lax in my grammar. Please forgive me for my laziness. Plus I just wanted to get my thoughts out here so no pictures for now but perhaps I’ll add them in later when I can actually take some decent ones.]

The temperatures in the UK have been rising and my wardrobe has been shamefully inadequate in dealing with it. So to tackle this I got four basic t-shirts from DD-Atelier and the Lucy from BiuBiu.

I got the basic t-shirts in blue, green, ivory and lilac in 34F-H. They’re rather stretchy so I could have gotten them in a 34D-F instead but for now I just wear my front-and-out bras. I never knew I could be so entranced by a basic t-shirt yet I am! I really like the v-shaped neckline and of course, the way it fits my torso without just draping down from the boobs. The colours have been a good way to introduce some brightness to my clothes. However I would wear a nude bra underneath if I were wearing the ivory top on its own – I have no nude bra so that’s a no go. So I’m going to wait until I get a nude bra (or the closest match to my skin) or wait until cooler weather (a virtual certainty!) to wear the ivory top. The composition of these t-shirts are 90% cotton and 10% lycra so they’re not too thin for the windier summer days and they’ve not been too thick for the current weather.*

First Post of 2015: DD-Atelier

Hello dear readers! It’s been about one quarter of year since my last post and now I must make it up to you. At first, I couldn’t think of what to write but that turned to laziness after my order with DD-Atelier.

DD-Atelier is a boob-friendly shop which hails from Russia. I’ve always liked their designs as I find that they’re a little less mature than BiuBiu and Urkye. However the prices are quite dear which lead to no hesitation in snapping up two items in the winter sale! I got a grey Cotton Top which unfortunately is no longer available as well as the Tweed Jacket in brown. Using the sizing chart on DD-Atelier and doing some comparisons to BiuBiu and Urkye I have estimated that my optimal size is about 34F/36D depending on fabric material hence I got the Cotton Top in a 34D-F and Tweed Jacket in 36D.
