In the meantime, if you’re not sure about throwing your hard-earned cash at a man who may or may not have requested sexual favors from his female underlings but are in dire need of a new v-neck, check out what LAmade has to offer.

We’re Firmly Against The Head Thong

Girls, you are wearing a thong on your hair. And no, Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens, I don’t care that it’s a fancy rhinestone-encrusted thong.
