Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week


Lattice Print Palazzo Pant, $29.99 (was $108)
Welcome to the Crazy Pants Edition of the Bin! That is, if two pairs of crazy pants count as an edition? Here we have some lovely palazzo pants that some of you are wrongly laughing at right now. I'd pair with this or this:


Nightcap Ribbed Bodysuit, $29.95 (was $150)


Liquorish Mini Vintage Bag, $27.25 (was $68.12)
Vegans: it's not even leather!


Cakewich Sandwich Cake Mold, $7 (was $15.99)
But... how?


Diner In Your Dreams Sleep Set, $57.99 (were $82.99)
Finally sleep in style, or at least head to bed in style.


Metallic Pointed Court Shoes, $40 (were $96)
These look like some expensive-ass shoes, no? They'd go perfectly with those pajamas. Think about it.


At Piece With the World Puzzle in New York, $13.99 (was $19.99)
One time I saw this actual poster for sale at a second-hand store and it was like $200. The end.


Sephora Wispy False Lashes, $3 (were $8)
These are my new favorite shape for false lashes. They're hilarious but not so hilarious that you can't wear them to the grocery store.


Beer Making Kit, $22.99 (was $39.95)
This only take 17 days to make! Does that sound like a long time or a short time? Either way, you should get this for that last person on Earth who would want such a thing but didn't buy it for themselves already five years ago.


Fishnet Inset Galaxy Leggings, $21.30
I just got these for myself and they are the most exciting leggings anyone has ever seen and I just sincerely thought you would want to know where to find them.


Playsuit with Pussybow, $$41.72 (was $59.61)
First off, "pussybow?!" Second off, you thought we were done with the rompers, but you were so wrong.


Gregor Knitted Scroll Calendar, $39.99 (was $90)
Yes, the year is more than half over, but this saddest of sad calendars doesn't really get its saddest looking until around October anyway. Pull string, walk away.


Sports Extravaganza Vintage Charm Bracelet, $156.75 (was $285)
Feeling that Olympic spirit? Thiiis close to getting a gym membership? Nah, forget it! This costs less and is way cuter (than a gym membership?) plus it draws the eye to your most decathletest looking, knobbiest part.

I NEED an allowance.

Sgt. Grumbles

@New Hoarder yo-de-lay-hee-hoooo. This feeling was articulated best by The Beets:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGFKaMsigok

New Hoarder

@Sgt. Grumbles Doug Funny is based on me.

Sgt. Grumbles

@ginalouise BECAUSE I DO

New Hoarder

@Sgt. Grumbles Now I have a medley of Killer Tofu and the Sweet Valley High theme song and Stand by REM (b/c I get them confused with Weezer). My headache is off the charts!

anachronistique

@New Hoarder I eat my sugar cereal, but it makes my teeth bacterial!

allendaniel

Brilliant woman. Genius. Thank you for posting.@a

aliceandstuff

An ASOS Curve item! I love how that model looks a little dopey in most of her photos.

aliceandstuff

@aliceandstuff Also I think everyone should spend their allowance on Half Empty by the recently departed David Rakoff. I am so sad that he is gone.

punkahontas

@aliceandstuff WHAT?! OMG I didn't know!

aliceandstuff

@sox I see that too!

coldheartedcitytheycalltheNo

@aliceandstuff I have a lady crush on that model! She's always kind of smirky (and looking completely high).

Judith Slutler

@aliceandstuff WHAT. NO!!!

cootiebreath

@aliceandstuff haha I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I keep seeing that model and she's always making that dumb face! Why does she do that and why does the photographer or whoever just let her do it and keep picking the same smirky fart photos? So weird.

elsbels

@aliceandstuff so sad, I have watched all his appearances on the Daily Show today, all of them so great and I urge everyone to download the How was your week episode with him. Wonderful man.

aliceandstuff

@elsbels I had no idea he was on How Was Your Week! Downloading that right now.

Killerpants

@aliceandstuff I concur. I watched Rakoff's daily show appearance for Half Empty today and laugh-cried. Augh.

New Hoarder

That bodysuit! I know I made fun of them when I was a teenager but they really are practical, what with the low-rise jean (and long torso) phenomenon.

New Hoarder

@New Hoarder Practical, ugh, okay, Mom. I MEANT necessary. And I LOVE the shimmer. Shimmer, sparkles! Every outfit needs some shimmer! Want that bodddyyyysuuuuuiiiit.

redheaded&crazy

@New Hoarder I'm also totally eyeing that bodysuit like HUH! I could see that style working for me. (also of the long torso)

parallel-lines

@New Hoarder Yeah but THE WEDGIES, man!

New Hoarder

@parallel-lines Ah, this is true. This is what elementary school-me learned when Muther made me wear them for warmth. Thank you for the reality check.

ALSO BUT SHIMMER.

parallel-lines

@New Hoarder But the peeing too! Oh man, I have some horror stories involving a bodysuit and Lalapalooza 1993. I bought a t-shirt just so I could take the damn thing off when Smashing Pumpkins came on* so I wouldn't get an atomic wedgie while bodysurfing. Mine was from Contempo Casuals and my butt winces in pain thinking about that thing (TMI!).

*Hi, I'm old, sorry.

New Hoarder

@parallel-lines Yeah, I only recently mastered the outdoor pee after an unsuccessful incident when I was 4 involving overalls. I suppose I shouldn't complicate things anymore for myself. Wahwah.

Nutellaface

@New Hoarder I continue not to understand the concept of having to get fully undressed at pee time.

meganmaria

@New Hoarder If I had that shimmery body suit, I'd bounce around my house pretending to be on the US Olympic Gymnastics team, despite my inability to even kind of do the splits.

anachronistique

@Nutellaface Seriously. I have to pee, I don't want to take off my entire outfit to do so.

New Hoarder

@meganmaria Just 10 minutes ago I had the urge to do a cartwheel down a dark hall at work. Now I know why!

New Hoarder

@anachronistique Too cold!

Ophelia

@Nutellaface Wait, the ones I had in middle school had snaps at the crotch, so you could undo them to pee? Was this not common? I think I bought them at, like 5-7-9 or somewhere, so they must've been mass-produced?

spanglepants

@Ophelia All the ones I had at a pre-teen had crotchpoppers, too.

tea tray in the sky.

@spanglepants New Whole Grain Crotchpoppers (Now made with less sodium!)

Hellcat

@parallel-lines I'm old too and, while I don't think I wore a bodysuit to it (though who knows?), I was at that Lollapalooza too and it was fabulous and, oh, my youth--where did you go? As it is, I have the feeling that, even if every single band on the lineup were a favorite of mine, I'd have to pass up the 'Palooza because I just can't anymore with the people and the toilets and the $12 bottle of water and the sun and the knowing I can't necessarily leave immediately if I feel like it. I am a curmudgeon now!

redheaded&crazy

oh those leggings. I WANT THOSE LEGGINGS.

zamboni

@redheaded&crazie I want those leggings so that someone can look at my ass and dramatically intone "SPACE. The final frontier ..."

Inkling

@redheaded&crazie
(There are way cheaper and not fishnetty galaxy leggings on aliexpress. Just in case the fishnets weren't doing it for you. "Retail Only" and "Free Shipping".)

@Inkling
My husband will hate them. I think I have to buy some.

EpWs

@zamboni HEY GIRL, ARE YOU WEARING SPACE PANTS

(beat)
CAUSE YO ASS IS OUT OF THIS WORLD

(apologies)

Ophelia

@NeverOddOrEven I'm not buying them because I think my husband would love them, and expect me to wear them in public (which I do not have the ovaries to do).

zamboni

@The Everpresent Wordsnatcher Hey, never apologize for living your best life.

shiv

@Inkling i'm going to say that all of those semi-ridiculous leggings are more acceptable than the ones with fishnet.

namtrung89hn

@Inkling I think I have to buy some.

I saw a woman wearing a bananas pair of palazzo pants today on the El. She looked so amazing that it completely shifted my take on palazzo pants from "yes" to "no"

redheaded&crazy

@teenie you mean from NO to YES!

New Hoarder

@teenie I have seen some ladies rocking those things, too. They look amazing. I bought myself a pair of palazzo pants, and I had very high hopes for them, imagining myself as a sassy cage dancer, etc. in them, but they just became fancy pajama pants. =-/

noodge

@redheaded&crazie oh shit! you're right. DAMN YOU FRIDAY BRAIN!
@New Hoarder - I think that there needs to be a really nice fullness to the bottom of the leg - I feel like that is the component that makes them graduate from pajama pants? i could be wrong. i'm really short/short legged too, so i'll clearly need to try before i buy.

iceberg

@teenie the bigger the bottom of the leg, the tinier the waist looks. SCIENCE.

New Hoarder

@teenie Well, mine are of enough quality to not be pajama pants, but that's what I've relegated them to because I don't have the cojones to pull them off.

NeverOddOrEven

@iceberg
It's a skort, but pants. Skants!
Wait, that's a little misleading...

Faintly Macabre

@teenie WAIT, where? Because the same thing happened to me by 30th St. yesterday evening! I was walking from the station and passed a tall black lady in sheer orange palazzo pants (they might have even been pleated!) and a green patterned shirt. She looked like some kind of 1970s goddess. Except I'm pretttty sure they'd just look crazy on me, because I am not the goddessy type.

noodge

@Faintly Macabre haha, no this was at Girard today, and they were black patterned, kind of like these. it's it crazy how some women can pull off those bold things? maybe someday...

mirror_father_mirror

@teenie I wore a pair of palazzo pants WITH A MATCHING VEST that my grandmother had bought me at K-Mart (it just keeps getting better) to a dance in the fifth grade. They (the pants AND the vest) were off-white faux silk with a gold/purple/magenta floral pattern. I believe there was also a ribbon choker. I am a pretty adventurous dresser today, but at the time I was an obliviously overdressed nerd with a terrible haircut, and this shameful memory has soured me on palazzo pants forever.

New Hoarder

Those eyelashes look like my husband's. I hate him.

TheDragon

@New Hoarder WHY do guys always get all the lashes and all the hair? My boyfriend's hair is so thick that his scalp doesn't get wet unless he actually works the water in with his fingers. HE'S LIKE AN OTTER. Don't even get me started on his long, jet black eyelashes. As a thin, fine haired gal with blond lashes, I really hate him some times.

New Hoarder

@The Kendragon And why do they get eeked out when you stare at these ridiculous features of theirs? Hey, if you're sporting that shit, you'd better suck it up while I gaze at you in envy. Nothing wrong with me imagining taking his eyelashes and putting them on my own eyes, geesh.

TheDragon

@New Hoarder It's fine, babe. I'll let you have mine in return. I'm not stealing your eye lashes. We are just trading.
Sharing is caring.

iceberg

@New Hoarder My son has those super long black eyelashes that wouldn't even need a curler, hand to god I saw one that was AT LEAST half an inch long, it actually reached his eyebrow. Little jerk.

Emby

@The Kendragon I really do have quite fantastic eyelashes. Unfortunately, I lack the thick head of hair.

But behold, my Bette Davis-like eyelashes!

Inkling

@The Kendragon
Is your boyfriend a selkie?

Plant Fire

@New Hoarder Ugh, I know! My boyfriend has super thick soft curly hair and the longest eyelashes I've seen. He'll even flutter them at me because he knows it makes me jealous. I always tell him he should grow his hair really long so I can shave his head and cut off his eyelashes and make a hair wig and little eyelash wigs for myself.

New Hoarder

@Sea Ermine Yes, and there is nothing wrong with this request!

iceberg

@Sea Ermine ah I ugly-laughed at "little eyelash wigs"

CrescentMelissa

@iceberg my little guy too -- the biggest eyes and the most beautiful lashes ever. When he was a baby he looked a little, um, funny because his head needed to grow into his eyes? But now, gah. he doesn't even know what he has!

TheDragon

@Inkling Haha no just Native American and Hispanic. So he has all the thick, glossy hair and long eyelash genetics. He's probably seen the ocean twice in his life.

ELECTROMAGNETIC CHAOS

@New Hoarder: Ergh, I hated it when my grandma and mom kept telling me what full, gorgeous eyelashes I had! LEAVE ME LONE, IMA BOY

TheDragon

@Too Much Internet Trust me, as women we are jealous of how gorgeous your eyelashes look, but we also DEEPLY appreciate how dang amazing your eyes are.
(On a less polite note: NEVER COMPLAIN ABOUT PRETTY EYELASHES, BECAUSE I WILL CUT YOU.)

You can read whichever makes you feel better.

New Hoarder

@Too Much Internet A BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL BOY

Hellcat

@New Hoarder My BF trims his eyelashes with manicure scissors because he doesn't "like how they sometimes touch his eyebrow hairs and rub against [his] sunglasses." Poor baby. I'm not jealous of the length of his, but that natural upward swoop! Mine are longish, but pin-straight and in no way reaching my eyebrows without a good curling... which seems to undo as soon as the mascara is applied, damn it (uncurled, they do touch my glasses. It is a bit annoying, but I wouldn't cut them like he does).

one cow.

Oh, man, good luck ever getting that Weezer song out of your head with that calendar.

@frigwiggin LYING ON THE FLOO-OOOOR, I'VE COME UNDONE

olivebee

I approve of this whole thread (pun intended).

parallel-lines

I don't know if I can get behind this palazzo pant thing...until retirement. They go from 'chic' to 'wrinkled baggy mess" like whoa quick.

New Hoarder

@parallel-lines The thinner ones are also complimentary to cellulite in the butt.

parallel-lines

@New Hoarder there are far too many opportunties to clothesline yourself by stepping on the hem for clumsy ladies like me.

New Hoarder

@parallel-lines YES, especially for those of us that have short-ish legs and buy wedges for such an outfit but are too scared to wear them. ♥u, ripped hems.

TheDragon

Those leggings. I would never take them off ever. And I would get leg stripe tan lines.

avoidmadness

I highly recommend a beer kit! My boyfriend received the tubs and instruments needed to make beer for Christmas last year and he has a blast every time he uses it. Beer kits tend to run between $25 to $40, it a great little hobby.

Heat Signature

This is the LAST time you fool me with the Cakewich, Elaine. When I ask for a giant peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I WANT a giant peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

frigwiggin

@Heat Signature "Well chee, Gary, and I bet when you said you wanted an IPA you were talking about an Independent Personal Assistant or an Irritatingly Patronizing Antagonist, too! Well, you've got one of those things and a jug of beer, Gary--I hope you're happy."

(I totally overlooked your G&E and started my own below--ugh, it's such a Friday today.)

Heat Signature

@frigwiggin You can never have too many Gary and Elaines, I think.

Gertrude

the palazzo pants come in long! tall ladies rejoice!

TheDragon

@Gertrude I need to find long maxi-skirts. I found a floaty, flowly, bright turquoise one the other day that would be DIVINE with a simple white tank and gold jewelry, then I read the length. From hem to waist was 33.
My inseam is 35". I would have had a high-water maxi-skirt.

Ophelia

@The Kendragon Ooh, I haven't checked it out yet, but I ran into a tall woman with a fabulous maxi dress the other day, and she said she got it online at Long Tall Sally.

ETA: Urgh, I just checked it out, and there is only 1 maxi dress, and 1 long skirt. Baffling.

TheDragon

@Ophelia UGH. I was SO excited for a moment there. I know where to find long jeans and pants, but skirts and dresses still baffle me.

DianaPrince

I heard the term "pussybow" for the first time the other day (I think I was reading about Peggy's outfits on Mad Men?) and was like, WHAT? And now here it is again.

The end.

annejumps@twitter

@xx-xx-xx Yup, that's the actual term for those bows. So.

siniichulok

@xx-xx-xx I know! I thought it was just Tom and Lorenzo being unusually mean, but it's not.

allofthewine

@xx-xx-xx Just in case you are possibly thinking, "where is the best place to read about Peggy's outfits?" the answer is Tom & Lorenzo: http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/category/television/mad-men

edited to say: I see that siniichulok is also on the T&O train.

OhMyGoshYouGuys

@xx-xx-xx This is the first time I've heard it, but I think it's going to be my new band name.

DianaPrince

@allofthewine Thank you, I needed more places to read about Mad Men! (Not being sarcastic.)

@OhMyGoshYouGuys My new band name is Rein In The Nuns, an excellent turn of phrase from this NYTimes article today.

OhMyGoshYouGuys

@xx-xx-xx Maybe Pussybow could open for Rein in the Nuns sometime.

Sunny Schomaker

What with the bodysuit and the palazzo pants, it's like the 90s in here.

Oof, I am old.

New Hoarder

@Sunny Schomaker This Bargain Bin was the inspiration for the wardrobe department of Sweet Valley High: The TV Series. PRIDE.

Lexa Lane

@Sunny Schomaker '90s moment of the week: I recently rediscovered the song "The Hardest Part of Breaking Up (Is Getting Back Your Stuff)" by fake boy band 2gether. I had totally forgotten it existed, though I don't know how. It's awesome.

And then my five-years-younger roommate had no clue what I was talking about when I played it for her. Because she's too young. Speaking of old...

New Hoarder

@Lexa Lane OHHHH 2GE+HER!!!!! BEST BOY BAND EVER! Fake or not! "Say it, don't spray it, I want the news, not the weeeeather!" My little sister and I get so excited when we see the "members" in other things; Mickey (toothy blond guy) has been in lots of SyFy type of stuff.

anachronistique

@New Hoarder I know my calculus, it says U + ME = US

New Hoarder

@anachronistique Guess what songs my iPod has decided will accompany me on my ride home today...

werewolfbarmitzvah

I love the IDEA of those pants, but I sense that one needs to have a tall, willowy frame to pull off those off. I would ADORE that exact same print on some skinnier-legged pants, though.

frigwiggin

@werewolfbarmitzvah I definitely don't have a tall, willowy frame, but I'm contemplating it anyway. Or some Punjammies.

werewolfbarmitzvah

@frigwiggin Those Punjammies!!!!! They need to start making dresses, too!

NeverOddOrEven

@frigwiggin
Ooh, once I get rid of my pump I'm buying ALL of the adorable sleep shorts!

Ophelia

@werewolfbarmitzvah You can give me ALL of the wide-legged pants. Signed, Tall But Not Especially Willowy

frigwiggin

@frigwiggin oh god or these, so pretty...

JessicaLovejoy

Huh. I guess the scroll could be less depressing if you have some end of the year ritual where you burn the clump and scatter the ashes.

If you want to destroy the universe
hold this thread as I walk away...

TheLetterL

@JessicaLovejoy Or re-knit it into something, circle-of-life style, depending on how the year went...

Nicole Cliffe

Who has two thumbs and just bought herself a pair of crazy palazzo pants? (This girl.)

Nicole Cliffe

@Nicole Cliffe (Jane talked me into acquiring jean shorts, I'm totally into them, and now I will basically follow her off a fashion cliff.)

Jane Marie

@Nicole Cliffe PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN :)

JadedStone

I have bought two things with a 'pussybow'. And I looked INCREDIBLY STUPID in both.
Actually, my mother said of the dress version: "That is the ugliest dress I've ever seen in my life. Take that off. It's better to be naked then to wear that"

And yet! In my mind it would look adorable.

JadedStone

@Jade I keep staring at this romper thinking MAYBE THIS TIME...

NO! Tell me no? It's a no, right?

parallel-lines

@Jade Pussybows are way better in theory than in practice. I've bought a few shirts (including an expensive Tucker blouse) and it just.does.not.work. I look like a terrible Janine Melnick.

Inkling

@Jade
I bought a red "pussybow" dress off Asos an it's kind of adorable! TRY TRY AGAIN.

dj pomegranate

@Jade <3 honest moms. I was really into this one striped dress for a while, mainly because it had turquoise in it. The colors were great, but it was very stubbifying and made my torso look flat and chubby at the same time? It was strange, but I loved the color! Finally one day my mom said, "That dress...it is not very flattering. I think you can do better than that dress. I don't know how it eliminates your boobs and fattens your arms at the same time." And she was correct.

Tragically Ludicrous

@Jade Rompers are always a no.

candybeans

I don't know how i feel about saying this, but i think pussybows might only work on really skinny, flat-chested ladies? I've definitely seen women rock the pussybow, but they were always really slight.
also, doesn't it look like ol' romperface is starting to wink, but doesn't quite get there?

Daisy Razor

Do I make the off color joke about the leggings? Of course I do.

Oh look, there's a black hole at the center of the galaxy!

TheDragon

@Daisy Razor Great. Now I need those even more.

redheaded&crazy

@Daisy Razor my vagina is ALL-CONSUMING

nyikint

@Daisy Razor Those leggings seem like they wouldn't fit well over uranus.

What can I say, I'm still in middle school

nyikint

@nyikint Although on the plus side, they do provide ample space for a knobula.

New Hoarder

@Daisy Razor So we found something that *could* lead to the 2012 Doomsday, after all.

fondue with cheddar

@New Hoarder You'd better buy a large because the universe is constantly expanding.

I'm Right on Top of that, Rose

Those palazzo pants had my inner Sassy Gay Friend screaming, "What what WHAT are you doing?!" But I'm about as chic as a Romney kid at a Utah barbecue on a Saturday afternoon. (That means not very or not at all. I think. Jet lag.)

That calendar would last about 7 minutes in any home with a cat. It would be funny to watch though.

frigwiggin

I saw a lady at my place of work the other day wearing these beautiful wide-legged white linen trousers, and I can't get them out of my head. I WANT WHITE LINEN TROUSERS. I found one pair of off-white half-linen pants at the thrift store the other day, and they had vomitous thigh-pleats. Someone, help.

New Hoarder

@frigwiggin The women in my office who wear these do it to taunt me, I'm sure.

wallsdonotfall

@frigwiggin H&M! H&M has wide-legged linen trousers (sheer, unfortunately) every summer.

noodge

@frigwiggin i have a lovely pair that i'm too nervous to wear because i seem to destroy/stain anything white

frigwiggin

@teenie Wear them anyway! They aren't doing you any favors sitting in a drawer. Or miraculously be my size and send them to meeeeeeeee~

meganmaria

@frigwiggin Linen trousers greatly appeal to the part of my belly that is rubbing on every. single. pair of work-appropriate pants I have because my baby bump is growing. I must get to H&M, even if the pants are sheer.

noodge

@frigwiggin hahaha, i think i need to wear them. i... just need to wear them. they're super sweet.

Ophelia

@frigwiggin I got a pair at Old Navy! They're mostly linen, super-comfortable, although, weirdly, they have a jersey waistband? So you need to wear them with a shirt that is untucked.

frigwiggin

@Ophelia Ooh, last time I was at Old Navy they only had them in the men's section. Maybe I need to try again...

nyikint

Heyoo,

It's been a while since I've posted this, but I wanted to remind everyone about the SHAREPIN, which is where Hairpinners give stuff away to each other. It's fun and you can either get lots of new free stuff (especially if you are staring wistfully at Jane's suggestions and realizing you can't actually afford anything), or you can de-clutter your own space!

Everyone is welcome. And don't worry if you live outside the US since people will still send their wondrous stuff to you!

I'll post this on the open thread too when it comes up.

frigwiggin

@nyikint Ah, I keep forgetting to post there! I have orange flats that are too small (CURSE YOU 6PM), but maybe someone else will like them.

nyikint

@frigwiggin DO ITTTTT!! At least one person (*cough* me) has ridiculously tiny feet and wants in!

frigwiggin

@nyikint I will! As soon as I get home so I can confirm the box info.

mmwm

Does anyone else just get a blank black page at whitehouseblackmarket? I liked the pants but ain't nothing at the link. I even tried their main page and got the same thing ... utter darkness.

Megasus

OMG I think I am too old to wear anything that is called a Playsuit. Also I do not have the ass for a romper/jumpsuit.

New Hoarder

@Megano! Or, finally old enough. Ba-dum-bah!

@Megano! Don't worry, no one ever has the ass for a romper/jumpsuit. And yet they still seem to fly off the racks.

@stonefruit I have seen a couple of people!

Baby Fish Mouth

I have no idea if the Williams Sonoma kit is any good but I highly recommend home brewing! We're out of control at our house and currently have a Keezer filled with three 5 gallon kegs of beer. I've always wanted to buy the 1 gallon kits from Brooklyn Home Brew for a friend but many of our friends have gone the full 5 gallon kits and haven't looked back. Also my husband just did his first all grain batch which ended up costing something like $26. For 5 gallons of beer!

purple monkey dishwasher

@Wiscowhitney I can attest that the Williams Sonoma kit is great, it's not actually made by WS just sold by them. It's made by my friend. :) Friendship perk = enjoying the test batches of beer!

geometree

I love that GoJane confirms that leggings are indeed pants (by way of where they're located on the site). On that note, I want those leggings but I'm afraid I'll have the tall girl problem of them sliding off my butt as soon as I walk around in them.

olivebee

Oooh, the vegan purse is lovely as all get out, but alas, I do not need another small purse. Gah, but it's so pretty!

I adore pajamas sets, and they are all I wear to bed in the cooler months, so I am a big fan of the above ones. Unfortunately, my wallet isn't as big as my want. :(

laurel

@olivebee: They're adorable but when it's pj weather, I want long-sleeves. Womp.

olivebee

@laurel True. All the sets I have are flannel except one, which is silk, and I vastly prefer the cozy flannel ones. Gotsta be warm.

cherrispryte

Brooklyn Brew Shop! They are the best. Go buy the beermaking kit!

Pin Feathers

GUYS!

Keep a lookout on Lord and Taylor's website for some crazy bargain bin deals. Yesterday they had a flash sale for an extra 75% off sandals (even the ones on sale!). I ordered these awesome printed, height-giving 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent Wedges for $37.50! That includes shipping! I think the flash sales are sporadic but it's definitely worth paying attention to their website.

cabot_cove_syndrome

@Pin Feathers Wah! Awesome espadrilles now $74.99. How does one learn of said flash sales?

thatslikeyouropinionman

Nooo...the purse is already out of stock! I've been searching desperately for one JUST like it. SOB!

When I put the lashes in my basket they are not giving me the sale price...?! Sadly I have to go to work now and I don't have the time to fuss with it but if anyone figures it out, tell me what to doooooo

ColdFinger

Help, please, 'pinner friends! A few weeks ago (maybe even something like two months ago), there was this discussion about buying clothes that, I think, started because a mom was asking what best to wear to the playground over the summer. Anyway, the important part was that a lot of people put in suggestions for outfits, as well as online places to buy things - and now I CANNOT FIND THE SITE THAT WAS THE BEST! (Crocodile tears!)

It was one of these discount designer sites where expensive clothes get sold for a lot less. If you went to their clearance section, you could find things like Splendid dresses for $50-$75. (I definitely didn't know a lot of the designers, actually - and it's not like I'm purposely out for specific labels or anything - but... a lot of it looked nice!)

Anyone have any ideas on what the site could have been? THANKS IN ADVANCE!

dinos

@ColdFinger Maybe it was The Outnet. They have really nice stuff.

@dinos Oh man. That must be it, thank you. The weird thing is, I've been on that site before, but somehow the search I was doing made it look all wrong/not like I remembered at all. I'm pretty sure that's the one, though!

I thought it wasn't possible for rompers to get worse. And then they decided to start calling them "playsuits."

Ophelia

@thebestjasmine Correct. No one over the age of 3 should wear a "playsuit."

Killerpants

@Ophelia @thebestjasmine All of the amens.

I totally want to get the cake mold for my sister, but maybe I shouldnt give gifts that come with the implied "for you to make ME things with" sentiment. She made me an awesome pie I saw on pinterest for my bday and then last week I got her fudgy the whale for her's. Older sister fail.

@cd yes, but in your defense, Fudgy the Whale is delicious.

re: the cake/bread thing....wouldn't it be simpler to just bake a cake in a loaf pan, and then slice it? I suppose you wouldn't get the official shape, but...we already KNOW how to make things shaped like bread.

@Ophelia But why not spend money on a kitchen item you can only use for one thing???

Ophelia

@meetapossum Everyone has cabinet space galore!

If you're having doubts about the palazzo pants you need to go the the Giant Pants of the '30s tumblr and behold all the amazing ways in which palazzo (and other large) pants are fashion perfection.

Oh, god, I just bought the romper. It's going to be so wonderful. Or so horrible.

@StoryGirl I just bought the crazy palazzo pants and the bandeau top. I'm putting a lot of faith in Jane right now.

StoryGirl

@willowz My romper is here and it's not an ill-fitting mess!

Awesome. Wrap-around pants and a bodysuit: for the woman who never, ever has to pee.

...I mock because I am appalled at the degree to which I covet that bodysuit. Like, breathless, hysterical coveting.

ETA: AND THE ROMPER ZOMG

Between this (+ hovertext) and the Rakoff piece, I love you even more than usual right now, Jane Marie.

BornSecular

Wow. These are jokes, right? Or maybe I'm just a midwesterner....
