Yes, I own an ugly bra that is festooned with sequins, so what? It was $8!
I was in desperate need of a couple new bras but had little time in which to procure them (I was on my break and also had to make a quick trip to MAC for blush) so I had to stop by the LaSenza Express - less selection and literally everything is in bins - because it was on my route. I was elbow-deep in the 'c' bin when out of nowhere this salesgirl is all "Can I help you find your size?" "Uh, no, I'm doing just fine thanks" I said as I quickly fished out the first couple of non-heinous bras I could find in my size.
Of course, one of those bras happened to have sequins all over it, how I failed to notice that fact is beyond me, but the aforementioned sequins tend to fall off willy nilly, kinda like Hansel and Gretel, but with a trail of stripper sequins as evidenced by a recent google chat with The Engineer:
21:18 me: why do you ask?
21:19 The Engineer: ask what?
me: the bra thing
The Engineer: oh because i found these huge sparkles in my bathroom...
me: and you were wondering if they were from me or another ladyfriend?
21:20 just kidding I'm not totally crazy
The Engineer: right
me: um, are they sequins or sparkles?
if they're sequins they're def. mine
21:21 The Engineer: sweet, then i did the right thing by having them framed
me: as a tribute to our failed romance, you lurker?
21:22 The Engineer: don't hate
me: i'm getting a slushie at mac's
last time I went and got something you had to go and be a copycat on me
The Engineer: mhmm
but i really wanted ice cream
21:23 and to be fair you had frozen yogurt, and i had the real deal
not to be competitive or a scorekeeper or anything
21:24 The Engineer: right
how was school?
my classes are ok, all but one of them are in [the same room]
The Engineer: so you're the anthropology equivalent of veal?
21:25 me: sure if that gets you to sleep at night
21:26 The Engineer: i sleep better knowing that the sequins under my pillow are yours actually
