Two reasons I must earn more money...

As much as I love my cozy, loft-style town home 10 minutes outside downtown Denver, I want, want, want a little house. Four walls all my own. The dividing walls in my unit (dirty) contain no brick and little soundproof insulation, creating a near constant flow of neighborly noise. Bah-boom. Bah-boom. Bah-boom. With sounds originating from the stereo, TV or in the pipes, it's like living in Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart".

Panties. Whether purchased from Macy's, Vickie Secrets or somewhere in-between, the quality and grade aren't cutting it. It’s ever-so frustrating to pull on a lovely pair and watch the lace unravel or tiny, stretchy threads explode from the waistband. I must build a better panty portfolio. All clothing, really. The more you spend, the more you save in the long-run, as I’ve learned by black tees that fade to charcoal gray with one wash, or 100% cotton sweaters that stretch to monkey-arm-length while in use.

Think the boss will buy the "panty theory"?

I love VS panties! Maybe I've just been lucky. There's some VS pairs I've had for like 10 years and they still look new...LOL TMI? Sorry. ;)

THAT must be the prob...most of my VS purchases are newer (last couple years) and some are just crap! They just don't build 'em like they use to.

Dawn- Are you saying they don't stay on long enough to get worn out? :-)

(Even if you're NOT saying that, I'm pretending you are!)

I hate VS panties. They just never fit me right. The bras are okay, but mostly I like their clothes, esp. the dress pants. I live in a townhouse end unit, and it's great. Never hear the peeps next door and the outside maintenance is all done for us. The only downside is not much parking and soon we'll have three cars.
