I know that normally when I write my Saturday Sussie, I focus on handmade items. I do this because I think investing in local craftsmanship is an outstanding way to consume. Nevertheless, I was out and about this past weekend window shopping (note: I left my debit and credit cards at home so I wouldn't be tempted--believe me, it ended up saving me a ton of money!), and I wandered into Victoria's Secret.
Shuffling past in the "Pink" teeny-bopper and bath & beauty sections, I eventually made it to the "grown-up" corner, where I found a whole bundle of the laciest, most feminine lingerie I've seen in a while. Aside from those, of course (it is Victoria's Secret, after all), I found several items that I'd Love to Have (but probably won't buy). They are:
* Silky pinstripe bedtime shorts (above right). So cute, so soft, so waaaay better than what I'm currently wearing to bed. Just ask my husband. On second thought, don't--that would be weird.
* Cable-knit slipper-socks (left). Part chunky-knit legging, part sock, part slipper. What could be better for cold winter nights? Or with silky pinstripe shorts?
* Panties in adorable boxes. Admittedly here I was less interested in the lingerie than the box. What a clever, clever way to sell underwear. Damn those clever chain-store capitalists!
