New name, same girls!

Let me reintroduce, the VS Social Thread!

Since the Social Threads seem to have been done away with, this is the new home of the VS Social Thread. We talk about everything from VS to Express to Beauty to Coupons to Hot Deals...and of course, our personal lives.

Roll call! Let's get back to what we do!

This dress will need some modification at the shoulders. I have wide shoulders, so it really shouldn't slip off my shoulders, but if I move a bit, it does. Quick fix, where you see in the pic, and I'll sew it at the top, removing a bit of excess fabric. I think this dress runs a size too big. I would have ordered a size L, but they didn't have any instock, so I ordered a size M, and it feels slightly too large up top, even with my size chest. I feel like I could fit a pair of DDD in here! This dress is also dangerously short, if I bend over, the free seamless panty that came with my orders will show. There is a hidden blue side zipper which I didn't notice, but I see it in the picture. I love this type of anti-wrinkle fabric. I will be keeping this, and will wear with leggings underneath, and a pair of mid calf boots. nod
Beautiful color on that dress. Leggings are a good idea, I was flashing ppl at the beach yesterday :embarass: . It was so gusty I couldn't even gather all the fabric to hold it down.

Definitely! Also, about the men's polos, you can still get the deal they were getting b/c you have the A-list CC. Polos are $24.90, add something around $9.99 for filler (less after 30% off), then use $15 Off Q and they come to $12.xx (which is the same price they were reporting getting in the first few pages of the thread). It's a pain this way b/c we have to order them one at a time. But we still get the deal :wo ot:
It's about time you posted. Nono1 I hope nothing was wrong. hug

Thanks for the polo info. I think we've decided to throw the girls in the store a bone. Stick Out Tongue I have a box rounded over to return in just my name. (We'll wait a while on the stuff in his name.) Only two of them will be an exchange, & that's due to getting one so cheap & the other with a reward. Embarrassment I told DH I'd print out a coupon & he could use that & our rewards to buy the polos in store. It will still be a good deal & it will help them out a little. I always feel bad for them, when we return so much to the store. I just hope he can get there this weekend, while they're on sale.

ETA: Now that I think about it... do they get credit for purchases paid for with rewards? If not, I'll just buy the polos online.

I tried on a few more things from Express last night:

4" FRAYED CUFF WHITE DENIM SHORTS http://www.express.com/clothing/4.../cat320019 I ordered these in a 2. (For reference, a 0 is the best fit for me in the 4 1/2" shorts.) They fit good on my waist & I love the length. It takes work to pull them up over my hips, but they don't look tight in that area when I get them on. Plus, they'll relax a little with wear. Even if they don't, they're not too small. There's no way I could get a 0 over my hips though. A 4 would be too big in the waist. I just happened to have on light buff panties, & there was no show through with those. I'll have to try them with darker panties later to see how much they show. These are a definite KEEP & my favorite Exp. shorts so far.

STRIPED KNIT PEPLUM TOP http://www.express.com/clothing/s.../cat610008 in Panama Beige. This is another favorite. It's my favorite peplum top to date, because it's the only one that looks nice w/o altering it. I got it in S. The stretch fabric really helps us bustier girls. Some of the fabric in the waist can pull to the chest area. This makes the sides look kind of ruched, but gives the illusion that it fits my torso better. KEEP & going to buy black.

ZIP BACK PEPLUM TOP http://www.express.com/clothing/z.../cat320057 in Bali Blue. (I don't remember if I reviewed this earlier, but I tried it on again last night.) This was yet another peplum top where I'm in between sizes. The reviews say it runs big, so I ordered XS. It fits perfectly in the torso, but mashes my chesticles. There's no stretch to allow extra fabric to pull from other areas. I could go up to a S, but I'd have to alter the sides again. I'm just going to return it & forget it. That's a bummer, because I really like it. I'm just getting tired of having to alter them. RETURN

STRETCH COTTON SKATER DRESS http://www.express.com/clothing/s.../cat550001 in S. This dress is so cute & really flattering. It's also very comfortable. It will be perfect for the beach. I'm going to buy a hot pink belt to match the back zipper. I tried it on with one of my skinny belts & it looks much better with the added splash of color. After trying this one, I'm going to buy more colors. I'm just not sure which ones. KEEP

Yep, he voiced his pleasure, as soon as I walked out of the bedroom. Teehee I've been buying smalls & taking the sides in, but the extra fabric going to the chest area makes this one fine. Dontknow As long as no one knows it's not supposed to be ruched, it will be fine. laugh out loud I wish the lace peplum tops would have done that. I wouldn't have altered them either.

I got this garter slip today [victoriassecret.com]. I love it! The details are sooo beautiful and it's just soo goregous! I wish there was a zipper so that it's easier to get in and out of, but I know a zipper would bulge. Super pretty. Got it for $16 OOP, so definitely worth it for me!

I really love men in suits drool There is just something about looking sharp! I don't care much for men in uniform. They're kind of meh

Quote from Cheapeats View Post :
Ahh beautiful cop. I remember it like it was yesterday even though it was ages ago.:lol : He had dirty blonde hair probably closer to brown but not quite. He was tall with long torso and he had greenish/blue eyes that twinkled and perfect teeth and dimples. It was one of those unofficial holidays and I was in the car with my sister and we wanted to know if street cleaning rules were in effect or if we could park on either side of the street. We saw him standing on the sidewalk so she pulled over and rolled down the window so I could ask him and he smiled and said hello and I swear my sister and I greeted him in unison.:lm ao: It was ridiculous. He even had a slight tan and the sun sort of bounced off his face as he leaned in to answer me.
Wow, you have such a good memory of this encounter. Definitely made me drool

I've had some great times in the pat down area. : P There was one flight where they pulled a black gentleman & me out for the pat down & luggage search. This guy lost it. He said he flew out of there on business every week & now they thought it was necessary to pat him down. The funny part was when he started pointing out people walking by that looked like a bigger threat (trench coat wearers, etc.) He says, "I'm obviously an American & so is this little white lady. Look at her! Does she really look threatening to you?" Then back to pointing out people he goes. :lm ao: I don't think I've ever laughed so hard. He was hilarious. It was worth the extra hassle for the entertainment. I bet that guy is a blast to be around at parties.
laugh out loud He sure sounds like it! Good way to make an annoying situation a funny one Big Grin

Hoping to give that darn thing a new home!

I need more jokes training Big Grin
