On "It was amazing* being able to wear yoga pants without underwear"

wait.... has everyone else been wearing underwear underneath their yoga pants this whole time? most pairs already have that little triangle-shaped thingy at the crotch with an extra layer anyway, i assumed you weren't even supposed to, like with tights.

@Sea Ermine YESSSSS

At 7 for $26, they're also a steal! And come in both pretty patterns and solid black/white/"nude" (not me-nude, but there's only so much you can ask for)

On The Beauty Bridge

Just ordered 10 different bras to try on! I love their underwear (lacy thongs and boybriefs—the only briefs that don't ride up my curvaceous ass!!!!), but never took the leap into the bras (at the pricey... erm, $20 with free shipping!). As my three four-year-old Victoria's Secret PINK bras fall apart, clearly it's time to switch to another teenage-oriented bra line, especially since literally all of VS's are actually pink-colored now.

We'll see if I'm really a 34AA (rather than an A) and if I've been deceiving myself all along! (They generally don't sell AAs in stores).

@Beaks I'm broad-shouldered (with tiniest chest ever) and i only know how to make my two statement necklaces work with higher crew-type necks, so i basically only wear them with my one white sleeveless peplum top. so it is only on the shirt. but also sometimes with a white/chambray button-down, with the top two buttons unbottoned, under the shirt? (cuz i'm not cool enough to do the jcrew button-to-the-top and wear statement bib necklace over the shirt, but that's a thing too.)

My guess is you will have better luck with scoop necks than v-necks? Because then it can sit on your chest above the scoop and not overlap with the shirt?

@Jinxie Oooooh I love those Loft cords, I got them too! Super comfy but don't look like sausage casings on my legs, unlike most jeggings-type pants. The almost make me wish I had to wear business casual again? Eh, not really. In terms of pants, though, I'm a big fan of black jeans as pretending to be black pants, which they are, but they're also jeans, which are more comfortable and cool looking.

I also liked wearing wool pencil skirts with brightly colored tights and booties, or my Frye boots (add personality and not really office-y but still work if you do it with a skirt all nice?). The pencil skirt dresses it up enough so you can get away with more silly stuff (in my head, at least).

In terms of pants, I don't ever know what to do in the winter because besides my black jeans, most nice work pants really do need dry cleaning/ironing and I don't do that... But I like wearing tweed pants, wool pants, etc. (Express for lower-budget, J. Crew is nice too, although more $$$). Have you tried your cropped black pants with more fun shoes? I would try cuffing them a couple times and wearing them with brightly-colored flats, oxfords, booties, heels if you do that.

@katiechasm there is some study that shows that people get drunker drinking diet mixers vs. regular mixers, so maybe she's referring to that, but i don't know what the mechanism is...

On Ask a Dietitian: Wine Time, Fruit Soup, Our Forbidden Lover (Diet Coke)

@sidral mundet Unfortunately I have a hunch that the point of the 1-glass limit for ladies is that you in order for alcohol consumption to be healthy you probably shouldn't be feeling much at all? I think it has something to do with the fact that feeling a buzz/drunk means your body can't keep up with processing the alcohol you're consuming, and the fact that it's floating around instead of being converted into not-alcohol is what makes you feel it, and that is also what is not good for your bod. 95% conjecture here.

@florabora If the NYTimes recipes for health are any indicator, fruit soup looks DELICIOUS.


Also, plum and red wine soup: two in one, delicious breakfast???
