dear walmart,

i know the idea of l.e.i. bra camis is good in theory; however, i have a beef with them. they are relatively easy to put on, but removal requires atleast 1 disjointed shoulder and a lot of wiggling that feels suspiciously like putting on skinny jeans. also, why are underwires always required? also, the use of flimsy lace for straps is ridiculous and not adjustable. what kind of one-size-fits-all world do you think we live in? oh yeah, please state on the tag that these camis are, in fact, underwear. i have seen too many women at theme parks wearing them as tank tops. gross.
l.e.i. may stand for life energy intelligence, but i feel it is saying, "life is too short to be spent in you closet, disrobing. all of your energy will be drained trying to take this off. intelligence was NOT used in this design."


the hidden cost of good taste

did you know that you can design your very own decor at for furniture (which is what i tried), you choose style, fabric, wood stain, trim, etc. i chose a louis xiv chair and a great striped fabric. we were recently given a pair of louis xiv chairs and aside from the dark upholstery, i like them. i saw this chair on a furniture website:

and tried to emulate it on the joann site here:

now how much do you think this would cost for one chair?

$200? $300? $600?

try over $1000!!! fun, but NOT worth it.
