I know! I know!! It's missile defense system, right? No?
Ah... phooey!

I love this whole faux scientification of women's stuff - especially beauty products. They just make up some highfalutin word and there you go, another must-have ingredient. It's like they have to make it sound important enough for us to pay the extra cash.

But we can't possibly see through that ruse, being laydees and all...

I had to work in my theatre department's costume shop for a while, and they have a surger there. The machine was terrifying, and for the longest time, I couldn't remember what it's actual name was, so I just called it the rapist. so now whenever someone mentions a surged edge, I automatically think of rape.

that's a good story

It's "serged," people! Not surged. Do not equate a harmless edge-binding sewing techcnique with a doomed-to-failure mission in Iraq perpetrated by a corrupt administration. It is not fair to the sewing technique.

i'm just waiting for spanx to come out with a version of this

DeeDee said...

Thanks, Mrs. Depoint, that was bothering me too. I love my serger but that Spanx slip looks uncomfortable as hell.

is it the compression or the serging that is causing her boobs to float upward towards her face?

Holy crap, Lady Coveted!

That thing scares the heck out of me. I started to hyperventilate just looking at it.

I think I need an episode of FMFFI to cheer me up.

is Lindsay or Paris going to start wearing spanx full body slips out (with nothing else except $500 heels) first?
my is that thing gravity defying- It makes sense that they need all that jargon to hold those up like that.

hey, and by wearing something that scientific it could even make lindsay or paris smarter!

Eryn said...

sergers aren't that bad.

Lily said...

Doesn't that look just like a pricey Herve Leger bandage dress? Look for less, you guys!
