A: GUH! Look what I found on eBay:


M: Oof

A: If they were my size I'd buy them SO HARD.

M: They are really gorgeous. Sigh.

(Random omitted chatter about punching people in the face. And making fun of a blogger's outfit. Not you! We love you. Someone else.)

A: I just went shopping! I bought stuff!

M: Ooh, what did you get?

A: This Gap dress:

Mine is black and white which they don't seem to have online anymore. It also comes in solid colors. I also got this cute top for $6.00 (great sale right now! Go!) at Ann Taylor:

Kind of a tent but will be good with shorts and sandals, I think.

M: Dang, I love that stripey dress. I need to go look for shorts there. And the AT top is adorable!

A: The stripey dress is an XS so if it shrinks I am hosed, but it's really quite nice - very thick fabric.

M: So cute. Just wash on cold and never dry it.

A: That is my plan.

M: I am half heartedly bathing suit shopping? Ugh. I kind of like this, for some reason:

A: Oh, that is cute! I love the back. I can't even think about bathing suits. No. I think I wore the one I bought last year once?

M: We live at the pool. Really, I should just get another one of these:

I wore my last one to death, and then killed it by wearing it when I was pregnant.

A: Oh, I remember that one! It's really pretty perfect.

M: I'm cracking up that it comes in VELVET, though:

Because nothing says beat the heat like a VELVET SWIMSUIT.

A: Um.

M: What, you've got a velvet swimsuit collection I didn't know about?


M: I just love the feeling of WET VELVET cupping my nether regions.

A: Dude! CHANGING THE SUBJECT. I bought my last suit from Boden and if I were to buy another, it'd probably be this one:

M: That is so cute.

A: It doesn't come in velvet, sorry.

M: Hey, you're the one with the velvet fetish, Costanza.

A: If only it were socially acceptable...


  1. Guys, if you ever see EBay Chies in a 35/5, you MUST let me know.

  2. You said cupping (snicker). You've been reading 50 Shades, haven't you?

  3. So I have this one from Walmart (I know, right?) that is identical to the Modcloth one and it's only 30 bucks. It fits like a dream.

    However, it does not come in velvet...

    1. Oh, REALLY? Have you tried the Esther Williams (Modcloth) one? And it's seriously the same?? I am intrigued.

  4. Yeah, I tried both because I heart Modcloth and Walmart makes me a little weary. I even think the Walmart one holds you in more and the reviews are glowing. It's sort of crazy.

    1. Okay, one more question for you, because now I'm obsessed: how is the sizing? According to the charts I'd be a medium (I'm a size 8 on top, 10 on the bottom), but the reviews are saying size up.

    3. I braved Wal-mart on Friday and bought two! In size Medium, you were definitely right to not size up. I got the black and a neon pink that's not online, wore both, and I am in love! Thank you again!

    4. Don't size up. I typically wear a 12 (sometimes a 10) and at first I sized up like the reviews said with an XL and it was waaay too big. I then got the L and it was perfect. I think people are thrown off by the initial snugness of the lyrica, but it's supposed to fit that way to keep things in place. :)

    5. Yay! Glad it worked out. I just ordered the purple since I already have the black, but I am jealous you got a neon pink! Happy summer to you and your new swimsuit!

  5. Oh, those shoes are in my size. Must resist . . .

  6. Wet velvet!!!!! I AM DEAD.

    Those shoes... omg! I have the flats but I really want the pumps. I didn't even know there were pumps! I need a half size up though. :(
