The other day, I realized that I always put on my underwear with such intense concentration and anxiety that you’d think it was some kind of perverted carnival game. Why? Because I read in Cosmopolitan like six years ago that if you let your feet touch the crotch part of your panties while you’re putting them on, you will get some horrible vaginal foot fungus (it was discussed in an article called, like, “THE LATEST WOMEN’S HEALTH SCARE YOUR DOCTOR WON’T TELL YOU ABOUT).

This “pinafore dress” from Zara is reminding me of one of those old-timey bathing suits from the 1800s, which is reminding me of the episode of “Seinfeld” where Newman wears one of those bathing suits while yelling “Olly olly oxen free!” and cannonballing into a pool, which is a lovely memory, but not really an image I want my fashion choices to evoke. I’ll take a pass. [$90, Zara]

I haven’t decorated eggs for the past few Easters, but this tutorial for marbled eggs looks so fun, and the results are so gorgeous, that I might have to give it a shot this year.
