I will absolutely take point on this outing!
If you are in New York, here is your next Saturday afternoon, which will be the greatest afternoon, BELIEVE ME: 1) walk down to Columbia St, in Brooklyn, south of the bridge, 2) go to Winkworth Lingerie and drink wine with the proprietor and try on all the bras, ALL OF THEM, 3) buy way more than you thought you would because you never saw your boobs look so good before, 4) go eat dinner next door at Pok Pok.
Let me know how it goes/I'll see you there. Really good lingerie (+super good thai) FTW.
@Pixley Man, I've just learned (like hella people below, it seems) that you just have to pay for the good jeans. http://shop.imogeneandwillie.com/products/imogene-stretch These are my current jam, and they are AMAZING. Size down 2 from what you usually wear and then you will wear them always and forever and there will never be butt-gaps and the world will suddenly be rosy and bright. SRSLY.
@caprette Guys! I totally made a find-my-bestie-her-signature-perfume-somewhere-in-NYC map/trip last year. We hit like 5 different places in the day and found her the perfect perfect thing, after getting super exhausted and having our noses get sorta confused but also happy. I can totes put together a list of where in NYC to go for anyone who wants!
@TheBelleWitch Julia Allison is so terrible! Could they seriously not have found ANYONE ELSE to ask about this? And if this is the most insightful thing any lady they interviewed had to say, then damn, this reporter is also the worst.
Sorry, I'm not usually this negative, this whole thing just makes me feel icky inside.
@TheLetterL Oh man, but that's the problem with the horoscopes and the tarot and the whatever-else-have-you, isn't it? Because you don't, exactly, but reallyyoudoandyoujustdon'twanttoadmitit? At least, that's how I usually feel. Oof. Here's the abridged version of what mine said: "Queen! You used to be strong. Fool! You are now being a dumbass. Something with lots of swords! This $%&* isn't getting better any time soon, honeybunch." (background: I am in the process of maybe developing a huge crush on my ex).
Yo, Edith, it is too early on a rainy, stupid Monday to e-read any tarot, because damn. It just. WHY. WHY YOU GOTTA TELL ME WHAT I DON'T WANNA HEAR, CARDS.
@aliceandstuff OH MAN do you want to sublet my room (big, nice) up by Columbia for the summer?? June 1-Aug 31...then you can figure out where you really wanna be! And you're by a lot of trains. And the park!
@quatsch Oh man, tell me more. I bike everywhere and I'm definitely not going to carry the little tub thing around. And i sweat a lot. And I still try to wear nice clothes. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong.
@graffin I just laughed out loud so hard. And then thought of all those posters they have, where they show pictures of teenagers holding onto the outside of the subway cars? a) Does that actually happen, and b) OH MY GOD THEY HAVE MOUNTED THE SANDWORM AWESOME.
I'm going to start carrying around giant hooks for all my subway travel.
