Memorial Day comes to Frederick’s

I can hear some of you now. “But Mir,” you say, giving me meaningful eyebrows, “doesn’t Frederick’s of Hollywood sell, you know, trashy stuff?” The answer, of course, is that yes, they do. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that!) Mostly they sell lingerie, and it’s often very… ummm… interesting lingerie, at that.

But they also sell regular clothing, and shoes, and accessories like bags, and some activewear that I swear no one would know came from Frederick’s if you didn’t tell them. And right now all activewear is automatically 75% off, and all swim and clearance items are an extra 40% off, and even though the site says free shipping on $75, I have a present for you: Use coupon code SHIPFREE for free shipping on any size order.

And hey, if you buy some of the interesting stuff, more power to you. I’ll just be over here in my yoga pants.

    Now I know how you “bagged” Otto. Good men like visuals. Handbags? Whatevs.

    I loved leafing through those catalogs when I was a kid, when they only had drawn models, no actual photos. Though in my youthful innocence, I had no clue who would want the panties with built-in butts and what-not!

    Oh! Oh! I remember the hand-drawn pictures in the Frederick’s catalogs too! (This would have been in the early 70’s.) I tell you, THAT was my sex education, right there. I was especially curious about the crotchless underwear and why one might want to wear them.
