Pre-party prep and the panty parade
(Men, you can tune out now if you want. This is going to be mostly girlie stuff.)
So, thanks to my damned aching back last Monday, I had to bow out of plans to go pre-party panty shopping with Alex and SpankCake. As I’ve no doubt mentioned a time or two or 27 before, new panties before a spanking party weekend event are essential. New dresses are good too, but the panties are a must. You can’t have too many.
Thanks to my chiropractor, ultrasound treatment and a deep-tissue massage, I was feeling much better by Wednesday and found myself with a couple of hours to spare. So, before I went to my gym class in Northridge, I went to a strip mall nearby, where my two go-to stores — Target and Kohl’s — are next door to one another. Score!! I found two cute (and cheap) dresses, a new top, two bras and three pairs of panties. One pair was particularly gorgeous, and I was thrilled to see there was a matching bra. Eagerly I riffled through the bras… but my size wasn’t there. Meh. I bought the panties anyway, figuring I’d find the bra somewhere else, maybe even online, since it was a popular brand (Maidenform).
Aren’t they pretty?
The bra had the same pattern, with purple lace and straps. So I wrote down the style name and number, and later on that night, I started searching for it online.
Shop after shop after shop, I found that style of bra, but not that pattern. Not even on Maidenform.com. What gives?? Finally, I contacted Maidenform, gave them the stock number and asked where I might find this particular bra.
They wrote back the next day. It’s been discontinued.
Oh well. I guess I’ll wear them with a black bra. They will look great on Saturday night with my new dress, which has a print of black, blue, purple and dusty rose.
My hair is cut and the grays have been freshly obliterated. Lots of odds and ends to do this week, but without back pain, I’m feeling a lot more positive. I’ll be seeing Steve on Tuesday for some semi-light, party prep play. And last night, John and I had a fabulous dinner out with Alex, Paul and SC, eating marvelous food and laughing and chatting until the place closed around us. So much fun, and I get to see them all again in just a few days! 😀 It’s great to have Paul back home. Seeing Alex happy makes my heart happy.
Still anxious, mind you. That never changes. But I’m feeling more eager and excited, rather than completely overwhelmed as I did last week. Now I just have to get through the week in one piece, John and I will get there, and the fun will flow. 🙂
Erica, don't forget a garter-belt and stockings, along with your other lingerie items. Because in my humble opinion, they make you look even more sexy. And they will certainly WOW !, the boys. XXX Luv ya.
Erica, your photo is on Aunt Agony's blog. XXX Luv ya.
Erica, you made my day. Your photo is also on SPANKING BLOG. Enjoy your weekend party, by having a 'spanking good time'. XXX Luv ya.
Six — thanks. 🙂
Glad your back is feeling better and that you had some fun with friends last weekend! I'm excited for you for next weekend!
Jay — thanks! I will be doing my usual party reports after the fact, hopefully with some good pictures. 🙂
May the real thing be even better!
MrJ — I hope so!
Great choice on the undies! I wish I had a pair like that!
Mark — thanks. Kohl's. 🙂
Don't you HATE when that back pain flares? At times for me it can feel like a sprained ass cheek sometimes. NOT good bum pain.
Have a great week and take the days one at a time. Everything will fall into line.
Kelly — back pain is the worst; it colors everything. And trying to enjoy a spanking weekend with a bad back would have been agony — all that arching!
Hi Erica — Those panties are too cute 🙂 I am so glad, that your back is feeling better, that is a big plus 🙂 I am so happy, that you got to enjoy dinner with some GREAT friends. I can't wait to read about you and Steve and to read all about the SL party 🙂 I bet the pics are going to be AWESOME 🙂 Much Love and hugs from naughty girl Jade
We definitely missed you shopping, but it looks like you scored big time! I can never quite remember what cut I like and end up overbuying. Oh well… more to add to an already giant stash!
Bummer about the bra… could the store call to see if there were any at a different location? I love matching sets!
Dinner was amazing and it was great to FINALLY meet Paul! And of course, John is a hoot. Please remind him he owes me a night where we see the bottom of the wine bottle 🙂
Counting down the days!
Jade — I do hope I get some good ones!
SC — you know, I called a couple of other Kohl's branches — no dice. Meh. But it's OK. A black bra will work. But I love matching sets too. I always know what cut I like; I'm a boyshorts/cheekie/tanga girl all the way. No briefs, no bikinis — once in a while, a thong.
You are going to have a blast at this Shadow Lane, I just feel it! 🙂
