Goodness, where to even start with these! I love the oh-so-natural poses of the girls in the second one. And the gigantic sunglasses on the lady to the left in the third one. And the man looking slightly confused as to how he ended up wearing that vest and thinking he had better have something good coming to him for agreeing to take a photo.

After a nice long, warm bath I automatically reach for that itchy orange and white acrylic crochet bathrobe. mmmm. cozy.

I can't even imagine how HOT some of these outfits were...and pal, I don't mean stylish.

I am totally terrified by those green pants in the last picture. What the heck do you wear under green lace/mesh/net/full of holes pants? Is she wearing anything!? Thank you so much for sharing . . .unless we remember the past, we are doomed to repeat it.

Though I guess the pants might be kind of fun with bright yellow leggings underneath . . .

Ok, and now that I totally dissed on the pants, I have to say that I actually really love the dress on the left in the first picture . . . I would totally wear it. Even without yellow leggings.

Oh well, the granny dress is amazing! I'm thinking that maybe I'll give it a try with one for my kid!

Two years ago at Michael's, I saw someone wearing an orange version of the green pants. With matching jacket. And let's just say that she didn't present the slim, trim picture that these models do. The innocent youth who wandered into the store that day is gone forever.
