Blessed Relief for the Oink Cadre

Gentlemen, the gods of the Intertubes have heard your piteous cries of anguish.

The next time the Little Woman asks [batting eyelashes innocently], "Does this dress make my butt look big?", send her here.

Thanks, Cassandra. I thought it was a creative idea...several other such at my cool startup stories thread. (The link you posted to my site doesn't go directly to the story due to a Blogger archiving problem I've been unable to solve)

A question for the estrogen contingent here, though: Would you actually *use* such a site? A high % of the women I know have enough confidence (or overconfidence) in their fashion judgments to feel little need for advice from others, either virtual others or real-life others..

I wouldn't, because I value the opinions of people I know and trust over people I don't know. I was trying to decide whether to comment more on this. Maybe I will :p

Sorry Honey, no fair blaming the dress. :-)

You say that like it's a *bad* thing!

*smoldering Valentino look*

"You're wearing a dress. Why are you still wearing a dress?"

Oddly enough, that's what The Unit usually says :p

/Husband caught in spotlight look/ "Dear, it makes your butt look perfect!"

I hope he has better luck carrying off the smoldering Valentino look. It's *hard* to get blue eyes to smolder...

Nah, it ain't the dress.

Being deployed means you never have to sleep on the couch...

...until you get back.

Maybe you should say, "women will be envious of that butt, I think".

That would do the trick... wouldn't it?
