So, my Lands' End bikini order came today. Surprisingly, the padded halter top did not work at all and the bandeau top, which was only available in one size up from my usual XXS, fit perfectly. The reviews on the latter were accurate in saying that there is really not much fabric to cover the bust--I can't imagine what the XXS looks like, nor what the top would look like on anyone bigger than an A-cup (in swimsuits, sans bra, I'm a 32AA).

I had ordered two bottoms to go with the polka-dot bandeau top: striped size 2 from Lands' End proper and the matching polka top banded bottom from Lands' End Canvas. Honestly, I would probably want to exchange for a size up in either, although they both fit.

And I have had the same problem with pants recently... I'm closer to a size 4 than a size 2 right now. And I'm almost 10 lbs. above my ideal weight. Now that I'm finally home, I can't blame cafeteria food and/or my addiction to free dessert... but it is definitely time to start an exercise regime and be careful of how much I eat.

So here's my incentive deal with myself: I am allowed to use my belated Anthro birthday coupon no matter what, BUT if I want to splurge on something that costs more than $40, I need to have made real progress toward my ideal weight. I am probably also going to Otakon at the end of July; if I'm slimmer by then, and haven't spent too much money at Anthro, I'm allowed to buy a (useless but gorgeous) steel-boned corset.

And, I need to do yoga at least every other night. I despise the gym, and running, so hopefully that will be enough.

About

Seeing personal style through K's eyes.

I'll be chronicling my quest for personal style on a frugally-raised college student's budget. Fitting room reviews, style inspirations, musings/rants about dressing a petite, size-2 apple figure--just whatever is on my mind. I adore the Anthro aesthetic, but rarely pull it off in real life. Same goes for heels and make-up...
