When bling needs to go undercover

I've really come to appreciate bling in more places than I have before. Aside from the expected jewelry bling, I've added it recently to my shoes (Jimmy Choo ballet flats). I've purchased boots and handbags with studs. It seems that the more ornamental, the better. I look around my living room and suddenly it seems a bit bland.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before Victoria's Secret picked up on this trend. I had a few coupons burning a hole in my pocket so I decided to see what my newest lingerie options were in-store. That, and my workhorse everyday bra had just gotten tossed into the trash after the underwire broke. (I wondered what was stabbing me in the ribcage for almost an entire day before I figured it out.)

This bra is the prettiest thing I have seen in a long time. It's neutral but has just enough bling to make it, well, pretty. Yes, it's a lot fancier than the bra that was unceremoniously trashed, but what the heck, I was due for an upgrade. I've always been a fan of the Body by Victoria line but they've really outdone themselves this time. And, judging from the new merchandise on the website, it looks as if a lot of interesting, pretty and unique designs are going to be in-store.
