The trauma inflicted on me this afternoon was so severe that I have so far eaten five chocolate chip cookies and I am staring down a bottle of red wine.

Has anyone else suffered a similar experience with halogen lights in dressing rooms? How much chocolate and red wine did it take you to recover?


OMG YES. You poor thing. I know exactly what you're going through. I go through the same thing every time it's time to buy a new bathing suit. Last year, I even tried on men's board shorts! (I actually liked them... they covered more of my big bottom!)

However, I did find a beautiful Vince leather jacket for $750 and a lovely Vince wools sweater for $250. I want them!
I refuse to shop anything but clearance rack there. Mainly because everything feels luxurious, fits perfectly, and I wouldn't stop. I can't take a credit card in there because I'd probably clear out the Betsey Johnson in a heartbeat.
