thefieldsofelysium 's Thoughts:

i’m a fan of United Colors of Benetton — simple silhouettes & quality clothing.

but damn it all, UCB (like so many other establishments) thinks women can have both a size-0 (or even 00) waist and boobs. who has both?? i’d like to freakin’ know.

this simple, black sheath dress was perfect everywhere….except the part where i couldn’t fill out the bust area. not even close.

the American market thwarts me, again.

p.s. either clothing has gotten bigger or i’m shrinking. apparently, i’m a 00 at Delia’s. (but that could be because prepubescents shop there, too.)

Ugh, i can completely sympathize. I have this gorgeous black dress. It fits beautifully everywhere but the waist area; the dressmakers, for some reason, decided that waists are ruler-straight. I'm not a box, thx.

haha. box-shaped dresses are decidedly not for humans. :)
