Lisa: your secret is safe with me

Lisa: Can I just say that big sweaters cinched in with little belts never looks good in real life? Just on the models in the Victoria's Secret catalog.
Sarah: Yes.

Sarah: Lisa. I might buy leggings soon. I'm apologizing in advance.
Lisa: NO. SARAH.
Sarah: I CAN'T HELP IT. I'VE BEEN RESISTING THEM FOR OVER. A. YEAR. They've slowly broken down my defenses.
Lisa: It is a slippery slope!
Sarah: What if I never wear them as if they're pants? What if I wear them with little shrugs and heels, and cut little holes in the backs where they rest on my calves?
Lisa: You are sentenced to watching Chocolat again to remember the flattering timelessness of 50s fashions, because blousy shirts and skinny jeans/leggings are NOT FLATTERING.
Sarah: NO ONE SAID ANYTHING ABOUT BLOUSY SHIRTS! I would not wear leggings with a long shirt. I hate you for suggesting that. This conversation is over. Just know that when i show up somewhere with leggings, you were warned beforehand.
Lisa: What are you going to wear them with?
Sarah: I would wear them with dresses, not blousy shirts, bitch.
Lisa: What about opaque tights instead?
Sarah: Opaque tights run. Plus, you can't wear open-toed shoes.
Lisa: Um. Leg coverings are worn in winter. Winter is not the time for open-toed shoes. I am just saying this for your own good.
Sarah: I am not fighting with you anymore about leggings.
Lisa: I was only fighting you because you ASKED ME TO A YEAR AGO.
Sarah: Okay, well now i am just saying that it might happen and there's nothing more to be done.
Lisa: OK. You have released me from my obligation. Also, what are your feelings on sweater dresses?
Sarah: Ummmm, I like them in the VS catalog, but they can be lump-magnifying.
Lisa: "Pleated cami has a luster so bright you'll radiate at every angle." I don't think that is a good thing.
Sarah: No. Not unless you're that one super hot model. Not Giselle, the other one. The brunette! Who's super hot! But not Adriana Lima, she of the huge lips.
Lisa: Hee. Oh, THAT one.

Lisa: Can i just say that a tube top should not have pockets?
Sarah: Now, with extra middle-widening!
Lisa: Also, an easy way to pull the top RIGHT OFF YOUR BOOBS.
Sarah: hee
Lisa: Do you know how many times i have almost bought that oxford shirt bodysuit?
Sarah: So many times.
Lisa: It's wrong. I know. It has a thong bottom.
Sarah: My question is, do you really want your nice oxford shirt to be wedged in your ass crack all day? I think not.
Lisa: I know! Thank you. But...it looks so cute and sleek and stays tucked in to your low-rise Marisa-fit butt-lifting pinstripe pants!
Sarah: I'm not arguing that with you. But...the ass crack. On your shirt.

Adriana Lima is to porn looking. Alessandra is by far my favorite VS model. Well those still modeling. If we are including retired models then it would be Tyra. Also if they ever make the oxford body suit not in a thong I will be the first in line to buy it.

You know when people say they laughed their ass off? I laughed so hard after reading this post and my ass is still there. I hate myself.

I feel so... exposed.

Oh and Marci, I agree. Adriana Lima looks a bit too much like a child porn star to me. But I think that Heidi Klum might give Tyra a run for her money as my favorite VS model ever. She's so pretty and serene, with her awesome legs, even when pregnant. But Tyra is so crazy in her happy, yelling way.

Sarah..........here is a quote from another favorite blog on the "Leggings" topic:

Now y'all know how leggings and those evil capris drive me up the wall but life has been good since the horrid trend seemed to die down ... and now we have Katie Holmes trying to make it happen all over again. I say No! We must take a stand and not let people think this fugly look is acceptable. Take up arms, people, fight back the desire to let it slide ... I know I can't be the only person afraid of all the heinous cankles that oftentimes come with this look. Join the Fight! Let's stop the insanity before it begins again!!!

HA! See?? Who doesn't want to be more like Nicole? NO ONE DOESN'T WANT THAT. *sigh* Nicole is so great...

How could I forget about Heidi. I've only dedicated the rest of my life to becoming like her. I change my answer to Heidi.

stop cheating off my paper, marci. hee.

i am laughing my guts out. this is oh so true and such a perfect convo between sistas. rock those skinny tights while you can girls. i have yet to go over to that side, but i think once i turn fourty i will regret not doing all the crazy 80s stuff all over again. do it. and while you're at it.. rock the bright painted white hoop earrings and splatter puff-painted shirts.

Posted by: marta on October 23, 2007 11:51 AM

i draw the line at puff-painted clothing. not because i should, since it's hideous, but because i always want to pick off the puff paint. and then you're left with mutilated clothing, which isn't usually the look i'm going for.
