that's some pricey sauce!

so, there are definitely some material items for which i am willing to pay a pretty-penny (think: fabulous, zero-muffin-top jeans / comfy, cuddly high-thread-count sheets / luscious, buttery red-leather-soled-shoes) ... however... scandalous, saucy underthings have never made my Top Dollar List.

i mean, yes, i will gladly shell out $18 a pop for The Thong Created By God Himself - the Hanky Panky (obvs) - but $325 for a romper? gimme a break, Kiki de Montparnasse!


yes, they are gorgeous and floaty and probably pretty comfortable but come on, what's the point? let's assess:
  • how long do they really stay on?
  • can it double as lounge-wear? i think not. well, at least i don't make eggs in ruffly bras.
  • what is your dry-cleaner going to say when you drop off 7 shirts for with 25% coupon and oh, some silk bloomers that look like they came from the Naughty Laura Ingalls Wilder Collection?
i'll stick to Vicky S. (or, let's face it: GAP Body), thankyouverymuch.

  1. That bra is adorable, but yes, not hundreds of dollars adorable.

  2. Not to mention, most guys are not even into these looks. So: unwearable and un-seductive. Hmmm...

  4. That is way to much money to spend on any undergarment! Not to mention he probably won't even notice them except for seeing them as an obstacle :)
