I thought this was called the "fuck zone"?

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

@thisisunclear Yeah, but straight-haired girls can wear bowlers and fedoras and all non-knit hats without having to worry about looking like Slash.

On Friday Bargain Bin: The Gramophone

@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.

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

@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.
