1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    That's the only decent one I've found so far. I specifically looked for tan skin, dark hair. If I encounter any worthy blogs by a blonde I'll let you know.
    So far, what I've figured for myself is that just like with men's clothing, there are items that you shouldn't buy for cheap. Shoes for us, shoes for them. Cheap shoes just don't look good. Women can get away wearing cheap jackets, though, as most of them are cut slim and high regardless of price. I think that jewelry and purses mustn't be cheap as well. Everything else can be had at H&M if accessorized properly.
    Also, it seems to me that all the women's fashion industry is one big lie. Polyester dresses retailing for 1K? I just can't get myself to take it seriously.



    I wear her bath robe sometimes. Fits me well.



    I would too.

    So, we've done quite a lot of shopping lately. I've bought her this dress. And the necklace was a gift for Valentine's day. What do you think?

    For people who asked about more blogs, I found this site: http://lookbook.nu/
    Please avoid looking at the somewhat-male species present there. Focus on the good parts.
    Also, I found this blogger particularly interesting for my tastes: http://lookbook.nu/kryz

    Not that I'm an expert on women's clothes but the lacey parts of the dress bug me. I probably wouldn't have picked it, but wouldn't complain if the lady wore it on her own.

    Interesting. I rather liked this piece. Why would you not have picked a dress with lacey parts?

    Don't want to sound too harsh, but... looks too russian-prostitutey?

    She looks great, but that's more because of her figure. You also look really good, I especially like the shirt collar.

    Thank you. No offense taken. I'm just learning about all of this, so all opinions are welcome. I see where you're coming from, I just didn't see it that way when she was wearing it.

    I think it's one of those outfits that look better in real life.

    I actually couldn't put a finger on it but Fang66 is partly right. I like bare skin. Now, it's possible in person I would've liked the dress more but I don't know I'm not enamored with it - hence wouldn't have considered picking it out for her to wear. Oh yah, what's with the weird pulling on her right shoulder?

    Acecow, you got guts for sure. I'm really surprised this hasn't turned into the usual feeding frenzy grand fiasco. LOL!

    Anyway keep doing what you're doing, it looks like it's working out well for you and your lady. Oh and you're not alone. I've done the dress up the other half thing on more than a few ocassions over the years.

    I wouldn't have picked that for my wife but as long she is comfortable wearing it and you are happy with it , who are we to pass judgement?

    Beautiful young ladies with great figure tend sometimes to show their assets and overdoing it..

    If she was older and wearing that outfit , I would have more critical..

    I do the same with my fiance. I'll help her quite a bit with picks and finding items for her.
