"old lady"? Oh, no. It'll always be sexy. Congratulations on the find!

I came in here to post this link to a 50% off sale on feminist tshirts (US site called Coyotes Corner, offer only good until the end of Feb). The page that comes up gives the regular price, but when you go to checkout, the half price comes up (so, $9 instead of $18). I have a Pat Robertson quote one for myself and got a "This Is What A Feminist Looks Like" one for my sweetie.

Squee!
I just got the Jantzen Vamp retro bathing suit in red!

It's like the holy grail of bathing suits! My boyfriend was against it at first, because it's a "old lady" suit, but we've been watching madmen, and he's changed his mind.
I had to get a size up to get it for $50 at overstock, so I really hope it fits!

Beautiful DVF dress!!! I've always wanted one of those. Just so amazing and flattering, on everyone.

I think I might go to Value Village tomorrow. I haven't been in a while and I love the thrill of thrifting.

Total score at Value Village yesterday. Never worn Tommy Hilfiger argyle hoodie - not that I give a shit about brands, but it fits beautifully (it's plus size, too - I didn't know he did plus sizes), and it's grey, lime green and turquoise - my favourite combo! (Matches my kitchen and my bedroom. tongue.gif) Never worn black MXM jeans. Worn before, but comfy as hell, purple corduroy zip jacket. Also worn before, but sexy as hell, black crocheted pullover.

Me too. I'm having a fashionable winter, actually. I think it's because I wear scrubs to work every day so when I'm not there I've been dressing really nice. Usually a skirt or dress with a cardigan and my tall boots or something like that. And lots of great colors. I just got 3 dresses from Tulle. One is a weird green/grey/pink/white pattern and it has this bib thing that's all pleated, another one is blue and has two sets of buttons running on either side of the chest down to the waist, and a bow at the shoulder. It looks sailor-y. And the last one is kinda plain, schoolbus yellow with a keyhole neck w/ some pleating around it.

I've been having a fashionable week. Got a few really awesome scores at the Uni clothing swap that I'm stoked about: cute grey sweater with a huge, wide, low-cut neck; a cute, black, very slimming 3/4 sleeve stretch knit scoop-neck top with a large sort of keyhole in the back, fastened at the back of the neck with a couple of ties; a really funky pair of tall, black, platform, round-toed pumps with a chunky wood heel and a wide leather band that buckles at the side, which I totally can't walk in but they were free so I took them anyway; a white belt with little cone-shaped studs that I initially wasn't sure about but which seems to be growing on me; a nicely tailored crotch-length black corduroy jacket; and a cute little brown plaid blazer.

Then I went and blew a $50 Visa gift card on hair accessories at Icing, which I'm super excited about. Got a big floppy red rose barrette; another red flower barrette made of feathers with whispy ostrich feather bits and rhinestones in the centre which I'm not too sure about but got anyway; and two of those little headbands with the accents on the side, kind of like these. I have one with red and black feathers and black tulle, a bit like #2 in the picture, and another with a big black flower with a few feathers poking out, large but a bit more subtle because my hair is dark. I can't wait to wear them!

Yeah, they're calling that a snood AP, but from here it looks like a hairnet...

Okay internet savvy shoppers. I need at least one great pair of jeans. I have been lazily buying jeans as and where I find them, but I am sick of jeans which are still lower-rise then I'd like them to be (seeing also as it's 2010 I have been amazed they're still available).

I think I'm going to bite the bullet, try on some designer pairs at our posh dept store, then try and find them online for cheaper. Any suggestions/inherent flaws in this plan? Any sites to visit/avoid? Thanks, in advance...

Man snood? Although they are calling it an "eternity scarf". Yeah. Man snood.

I always thought that this was what a snood was. Back in my rockabilly/swings days I used to put my hair back in a clip with a big black grosgrain bow that had a little snood attached. Kept my 'do under control.

I think the snood is going to be one of H&M's misses this season, CandyCane. Although I expect to see a few fashion gals trying like hell to make them work with something (cropped leather jacket?). H&M will prolly have better returns with the Jimmy Choo line.
Your coat sounds elegant!

I already saw a bunch of those at H&M! I have to admit, here in a cold climate having a snuggly hood/scarf thing is a bit appealing, but I can't see how it would work with my black and grey houndstooth coat.

Well, this looks like the best thread to put this in:
There's a website called the Silver Jewelry Club that sells you their promotional pieces for 6.99 (in the US). They tout the items as free, and the 6.99 is for shipping. I've bought a few pieces from them, and they're all surprisingly quite nice.
Mind you, I don't think the pieces are actually worth what they say they are ($50 and $60 and up), but for 6.99, it really is a great deal, especially with christmas coming! I've picked up a peridot necklace, earrings, and ring for my mom, a necklace each for my aunt and cousin, and a topaz ring for me (yep, I'm broke, and a bit parsimonious because of it). The site insists that their materials are genuine (gemstones and sterling silver) and there is a standing $1000 offer for anyone who can prove their materials aren't what they say they are.
But the thing is, a piece will only be up for 15 minutes. And if you're looking at a ring, it's only available in the size listed. You can't go through checkout and change the size. If you pick out a pendant, it doesn't automatically come with a chain - you have to buy one (but it's only $4, so it's no big).
If you're on a tight as hell budget like I am, check them out! Just google Silver Jewelry Club. I'm not posting a link because I don't want it to look like I'm trolling. If you like, I can try to post pictures of what I've got.

Re: snoods -- Fashion-editor wishful thinking, Aural, although big, clumsy, funnel scarves will probably flop around a few fabuluous necks until said necks look in a mirror.

The fuck is up with the snood? Are people really wearing these?

So I ordered three pairs of gloves from Target.com & am going to make my own bedazzled gloves for the season. Hooray for me.

Honey, I am the QUEEN of internet bargain shopping. I don't check out of any place without searching for promo codes & the like.

I wish I'd have known about BTR sooner, they had the JS boots I wanted on fantastic sale, but they've now sold out.

I didn't until I typed "beyond the rack invitation code" into Google & it gave me the access code of "BTRACCESS". It worked. Give it a shot, if it doesn't work for you send me your email & I'll invite you.

It's hard to give recs when we don't know where you are. Major city or small one? USA or Canada or elsewhere? I always suggest Macy's when I don't know where somebody is & there are a lot fo great places online.

hi ladies! I've been trying to find an alternative place to purchase good bras other than victorias secret. I really like the fit of their bras but dont like the price or some of the company's stands on things. I've tried looking around other places but other bras just dont seem as well made or as supportive. I'd prefer a place that i can actually go to and try on the bra rather than just looking online, but if any of you know of an amazing online store too i'd be willing to try it out. any suggestions?

thanks!
