frock you

there was the one that took us to the wedding on the beach: silky on our skin, a loose grip on the hip, creeping higher up our thigh as the evening unfurled. ooh, or how bout the one that spent the night with us underneath a blanket of midwinter sky: stars reflecting ethereal shimmer, hugging us close, rough bits brushing our ice-nipples and sending shivers down our middle. one of our favorites was tall, dark and strong: at once classically handsome and abstractly unexpected, standing out the sexiest from the crowd of the room, ours (all ours). we didn’t really want to give any of them up, that one especially, but we did. because dresses are like men: once you’re done, you pass them on. share that shit.

there’s just one more day until the frocktail, the annual fundraising fete for juvenile diabetes research, designed to bring new loves into your life in a chic and celebratory setting. with over 120 dresses donated from some of toronto’s best closets and clothiers (we have our eye on a calla number, and we’ll fight you for it) it’s safe to say this is the most fun you’ll have whilst shopping. last year’s event yielded brasandranties a brand new dress, an almost-girlfight and a six foot six giftbag. so we’ll see you there, then?

    B&R, you really need to stop writing and twittering about your ex every chance you can get (even from the beginning of the blog). It's weird. Everyone knows who you're referring to. I think you should stop. It's over. You look obsessed.

    I agree with Anon 7, it's understandable to be still be hurting after you've been dumped but please just move on, he really isn't worth it.

    People constantly commenting on every move you make (even anonymously on your breakup blues)? I can't fathom why you bother, Bras & Ranties.

    Anon 7 you are a bitch take some of that negative energy and do something instead of sitting at the computer at 7;44 on a friday night, loser bitch.

    You are no one's friend, Anon 7. Keep your advice to yourself, or on a different blog, obviously no one wants it here. We want B+R's.

    I get the feeling the B&R is giving her readers the cold shoulder as punishment for their own little 'Rantie'…. Anyone agree with that??

    No. Just think she's busy doing her own thing, that's all. Leave it, sending her positive chi! ๐Ÿ™‚
