Sweet Nothing Du Jour: 8/28/12

Chocolate Almond Raspberry Tart

True Blood’s season finale is today, and while Ezmeralda’s viewing group has all agreed that the show is trashy and terrible and has been kind of beyond awful the last three seasons, we’re still gonna watch it. I’ve missed about three weeks because of various ailments, but since the plot is basically “Everyone wants to […] Read more…

On Shapewear

I’m deeply ambivalent about shapewear.  For years I thought it was the worst thing that had happened to the 21st century woman.  I felt like there was a campaign to convince us that we all “needed” to be wearing Spanx, all the time, no matter what.  I’d hear women in fitting rooms moaning about various […] Read more…

I remember timidly exploring the world of online lingerie shopping shortly after moving to New York.  I Googled my size at the time: 34DDD, according to Nordstrom.  Even though I soon found websites like HerRoom, FreshPair, Figleaves, and Bare Necessities, knowing my size wasn’t much of a help.  Some of these places didn’t seem to […] Read more…
