Speaking of Girls, "Taffy Brodesser-Akner" is Tally Schifrin, right?
@leon s In my day we called this the "backup boyfriend."
I thought this was called the "fuck zone"?
(Lord knows it's not always a girlfriend they want...)
@MoxyCrimeFighter You just blew my mind. K.A. Applegate wrote the "Girl Talk" books??
@thisisunclear Yeah, but straight-haired girls can wear bowlers and fedoras and all non-knit hats without having to worry about looking like Slash.
@KatnotCat Guys, I'm getting married soon, and I feel like this means I should own lingerie of some kind? But I don't really know how that works. Isn't it awkward to be like "wait, hold that thought" and go change? Or are you supposed to wear it all day? That seems uncomfortable/impractical. Also, where does one buy such a thing? Most of what I have seen looks pretty ridiculous. I suppose I would like something cheap that does not LOOK cheap, and is vintage-looking, and reasonably comfortable. A nightie, maybe? To complicate things even further, I have recently moved to Canada and don't know where to shop here yet.
@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.
@OhMyGoshYouGuys I really wish you hadn't told me that.
@KatieBarTheDoor I related to Felicity SO STRONGLY when the show was first on the air. I was about the same age! I was kind of awkward and took everything too seriously! I remember thinking that her dilemmas were just so REAL.
So I'm taking it as a sign of personal growth that ten years later, when I started re-watching it on Netflix, all I could think was "Damn, girl needs to get laid."
@miss buenos aires I am like this! I've just decided to think of it as a well-curated vintage dress collection.
