A Letter To Victoria's Secret From All The Pissed Off Women Needing Swimsuits

A Letter To Victoria's Secret From All The Pissed Off Women Needing Swimsuits

I'm not one to tell you how to run your company, but discontinuing your swimwear was not the smartest.

Dear Victoria's Secret,

I have never owned or ran a multi-million dollar company, so I am not making judgments regarding your marketing decisions. However, since your announcement regarding your decision to stop manufacturing your highly coveted swimwear, I have witnessed countless rants on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. and almost every girl I know have a mental breakdown over where they are going to buy their swimsuits this year.

So, why can we not just get them somewhere else? You just get us VS. You understand that underwire is important for us women who are bigger than an A cup, and push-up padding is helpful for those lesser blessed women. You understand our need for something sexy, yet also supportive and "covering." You were also easier to customize than some places, and sizing was not a problem, since most of us already buy our bras and underwear from you. We are also creatures of habit, so I, and others, have begun to look forward to seeing your new designs every year.

So, are we going to stop shopping at VS? Of course not! We just want you to know that we are deeply saddened and disappointed...and if you ever decide to bring them back, we will welcome you with open arms.

Although we are all a little ticked off by this decision, and I feel as if it will impact our lives greatly, I feel like it may impact you as well. I myself bought 3 or 4 swimsuits a year from you, and while on the website, a few other things. Most girls I know also bought a good bit from your website when summer came around. Now? You won't have that. Sure you have the fitness wear collection, but sorry VS, Nike has my heart in the fitness department. So while I hope it doesn't hit you too hard negatively, i kinda do, so maybe you'll bring them back.

So, VS, I hope you consider your customers anger and disappointment and give it a second thought for next year. In the meantime, I'll just be frantically searching the internet for my swimsuit for this year.

22 New Things That I Want To Try Now That I'm 22

A bucket list for my 22nd year.


"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

How To Pick The Best Birkenstocks

The best Birks for any millennial.

So this is a little odd for me to be writing because I'm not a huge Birks fan. But I am in the process of finding the perfect Birkenstocks for my feet. And at the price point that I am willing to spend for a pair of sandals.

Last summer I gave in and bought a pair of Chacos for the first time. I remember exactly how much they cost with tax because I couldn't believe it. These suckers cost me 119 dollars. I was in sticker shock and I resisted to wear them for awhile because I felt so bad. But everybody had them, and I just wanted to fit in. So after wearing these wonderful pieces of rubber with straps for about a week, I couldn't believe that I ever went without them. And I have a feeling I'm gonna think the same thing about my future Birkenstocks.

So to start out, you've gotta decide if you want a toe loop or no toe loop. This was a hard decision for me because I love a good toe strap, but I want to wear my Birks all year around with my socks. So what ultimately brought me to my final decision was asking myself, "what is everyone else wearing?" I know what you're thinking. Be your own person Holly. Wear what you want. But if everyone else is wearing the Birks with toe loops, then they surely MUST be comfortable right?

So then your next step is, what color do I want? There are only three colors of Birks with the toe loop. There is black, mocca, and stone. I already knew I didn't like the stone color, so I was in between black and mocca. But what ultimately did it for me was that I could wear the brown with a lot more and not have to worry about my feet looking pale. They would look tan all of the time with my brown sandals on.

So your very last step before ordering is finding the best deal. I looked on the Birkenstocks.com website, and I also looked at Amazon. But then I ultimately got a hot tip from a friend who had purchased her Birkenstocks to look on eBay. Usually, I steer far away from eBay, but I decided to give it a go.

And that is the best decision I've made in awhile. I found Birkenstocks 20 dollars cheaper than the retail price (THIS IS A HUGE DEAL FOR BIRKS!) So throughout the past few weeks I have been watching eBay waiting for the perfect pair to come along. And I think I found it! I hope you like your Birks and I hope this quick little article laid it all out for any prospective Birkenstocks buyers!
