BETSY + IYA JEWELRY SALE!!!

Love Coin Earrings

Big Shameless Love Earrings $20!

Hello my little pr0n pop-tarts!  Have you ever looked at a clothing or accessories website longingly and thought, “Wow…I really love this stuff.  But I just have other things I need to do with my money right now?” 

It’s not that their prices are unreasonable in the least, but somehow your mind just…strays from that little clicky button.   That’s how I’ve been feeling about Betsy and Iya Jewelry.

Which makes the following information both good and bad news: Sunday was Betsy’s FIRST anniversary as Betsy and Iya Jewelry (well, that’s completely good news). To celebrate, she’s giving 20% off to anyone who puts a favorite quote or favorite book in the “message to seller” section before checkout.

The earrings above me (above here) are real vintage “Love” coins.  I don’t know where Betsy finds this stuff, but I’m fascinated by everything she uses.  I don’t know if the love is shameless or the earrings are or both (never mind: it’s from the Shameless Love Collection), and I don’t care; her earrings are seriously making me jones to have my ears re-pierced.  Damn you, Betsy!
..

Last time I showed you the Norrmisima Black Lacy Racy Earrings; this time I’m showing you The Louise Silver Pretties Earrings. 

Louise Silver Pretties Earrings, $31.20

Louise Silver Pretties Earrings, $31.20

Seriously, people I’m throwing a virtual temper tantrum right now because I love silver and would so totally rock these earrings with my platinum blonde bob.  But my ear holes closed up. *SOBS* 

Enough about my needs; a lot of these pieces are one-of-a-kind, or at least no two are exactly alike, because they’re made out of old silver plate-like filigree hunks.  So if you want these, and you should, don’t wait.

.

Grand Key Necklace, $39.20

Grand Key Necklace, $39.20

Let’s go back to my needs for a minute. I’m buying something; you don’t throw 20% off at girl and expect her to waste it.  But I’m really torn.  Option 1 on the right is the Grand Key Necklace.

I love the asymmetry and how graceful it looks on the model’s neck.  With 20% off, it’s $39.20.

Asymmetrical Square Copper Girl Necklace

Asymmetrical Square Copper Girl Necklace, $36

On the left is Option Two: the Asymmetrical Copper Girl Necklace.  Take 20% off and it’s $36.

Again, the asymmetry calls to me, as does the delicateness (is that a word?).  Quoting from Betsy’s website: The centerpiece is antique victorian gothic copper, which measures 28mm. There are three subtle, delicate sterling silver chains linked to one silver gunmetal chain. The back is a sterling silver clasp handcrafted by me that hooks into a unique hook of chain. The necklace extends farthest to about 20″ .

If any of you buys one of these before I make up my mind, I will cut you.  Nicely, of course.  What do you think, pr0n stars?

Night Owl Blue Star Necklace at Betsy and Iya.com, $44

Night Owl Blue Star Necklace at Betsy and Iya.com, $44

Let me share a few more pieces of jewelry from her other collections.  From Betsy’s “Color Blasting Vintage” collection, I pulled her Night Owl, Blue Star necklace.

This is how you accessorize – with one fantastic stand-out piece changing the entire look and feel of an outfit.

A royal blue vintage owl and vintage robin’s egg blue fillagree ball is attached to ribbon, sterling silver, aluminum, and gunmetal chains.

The way Betsy layers her chains is one of the unique and hallmark features of her jewelry collection. 

.

i am your letter dog necklace $68.80

i am your letter dog necklace $68.80

.

Finally, you will truly have a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry if you order from the i am your dog collection.

A ball chain is attached to a thick silver dog tag.  Tell Betsy what letter or letters you want on it and she’ll engrave, oxidize and abuse. 

A handmade item like this one is well worth the $68.80.  You won’t find anything this special or lovingly made in stores.

Please head over to Betsy’s etsy store, and Betsy’s blog (which is also great) and show her some Shopping Pr0n love.  And take my poll!

I have to scurry to the gym, my little pizza rolls.  One last thing!  There is no pay for play here on Shopping Pr0n.  Trust me, Betsy hasn’t given me a darn thing for writing these posts! :D  If I say I love it, I love it. 

Until next time, it was ever so good for me; tell me: was it good for you?

ChickDowntown is having an absolute blow-out sale.  Use code “ADD40” and take an additional 40% off sale items. 

These are final sale items, and don’t qualify for free shipping, but with prices like $67.50 for this ADAM Midnight T-shirt dress, sizes 4 & 10, if you’re a fairly easy fit, check their size charts and go for it. 

This is 100% silk charmeuse, lined in 100% silk chiffon.  Seriously, people – buy this!

Tibi Red Gerbera Shell at ChickDowntown

Tibi Red Gerbera Shell at ChickDowntown

How about this Tibi Red Gerbera Shell for $54? Size 8, 100% cotton.  Brilliant blossoms top with back button closure.

Oh – I’m looking at this size chart and these are definitely not true-to-size.  I wear a size 6 on top, and according to their size chart I’d be about a 10 on their site.  So proceed with caution. 

If you have a store nearby that sells this brand (say a better department store) and can try a few pieces on just for size, that would be a good idea.

Juicy Flocked Shirt at Neiman Marcus

Juicy Flocked Shirt at Neiman Marcus

Finally, I was reading just the other day about how venerable luxury retailer Neiman Marcus posted a 20% loss compared to this time last year.  So it occurs to me – pr0n stars: it’s time to do our part.  We too must sacrifice in order to save the economy.  We must shop at Neiman Marcus.

Think you could never afford to shop at Neiman’s? Think again. Think about this Juicy Couture Flocked top. Very bohemian. Very mint. Very $59.00.

Theory Cargo Skirt at Neiman Marcus

Theory Cargo Skirt at Neiman Marcus

Or this Theory Cargo skirt for $75.00.  They call the color “Myrrh”; I think Theory would have made an excellent gift for the baby Jesus, don’t you?

You know what this post needs? More cowbell handbags and shoes.

These Taryn Rose boots are an incredible find.  Taryn Rose is a former Orthopedic Surgeon turned shoe designer who creates stunning shoes that are good for your feet.

Taryn Rose Helium Polished Leather Boot

Taryn Rose Helium Polished Leather Boot

Unfortunately for us humans, the prices are stunning, too. 

Her Helium Polished Leather boots are still available in a wide range of colors and sizes, and are half-off, at $203.   If you’re in the market for a pair of black or brown boots try these.

My BFF, K, was recently treated to a pair of Taryn Rose boots worth nearly my monthly rent! Now that’s pr0n!

Lauren Merkin Eve Clutch at Luna Boston
Lauren Merkin Eve Clutch at Luna Boston

Handbag pickings at Neiman’s were pretty slim, so I went to old faithful, LunaBoston, to show you Lauren Merkin.  I looove Lauren Merkin clutches. 

I’m not normally a clutch kind of a girl, but these are so stylish and chich that I’m drawn to them.

Like this Eve Textured Lambskin clutch in Coral – it was $180, and it’s now $135 – plus free shipping for any orders over $100 and free returns.  What are you waiting for? Go! Shoo!

.

By now certainly you’ve found something to stimulate the economy with. I hope you enjoy your purchases (send me pictures!), and I hope you enjoyed today’s edition of Shopping Pr0n!

Until next time, my lovely pr0n pickles – it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

Color Pr0n: Spring Fashion Color Trends

TBags Batwing Jersey Dress $106 at Bluefly

TBags Dress $106 at Bluefly

Hi pr0n stars!  Spring is about to…spring!  We’re about to spring forward, it’s time for spring cleaning, a young man’s fancy turn to love, and according to my sources color is back.  I don’t know where it went, but I’m glad to see it.  I have so much color to show you today: lemony yellows, coraly corals, and rosy pinks, just to name a few.

I’ve been beating the drum about how big cobalt blue is going to be this season, and (as usual) I’m right!  Check out this delightful cotton jersey dress by Tbags.  It’s got a deep v-neck (you can always throw a cami under it), ruched shoulders and bustline, and this marvelous abstract/floraly green, cobalt and orange print.  Throw on a cardigan and a pair of flats and try wearing it to work.

This style is so flattering and forgiving; whether you’re trying to camoflauge a tummy, or hips, or thighs and a rear – this dress is just going to skim right over your problem area, open up your neck and face and make you look great.

.

I broke out my new toy again.  I love toys!  People tend to shy away from yellow and orange, when in fact they can be extremely flattering colors.  In the middle is a buttery yellow raincoat by Alice and Olivia; this heavyweight cotton is a perfect fabric for Spring.

Orange you glad you're not a lemon?

Center, going clockwise: Alice + Olivia jacket $303, TopShop USA shoes $110, Rebecca Beeson Tunic $29.99, Kate Spade Tote $221, Kate Spade Hobo $275, Nanette Lepore jacket, $249

I love the contrast coral buttons, and I found lots more coral.  To the left is the Nanette Lepore cotton “Come Together” jacket; the ribbon will help create or accentuate a waist, and along with the 3/4 length sleeves it will also draw up the eye .

On the right is a bright red Rebecca Beeson cotton tunic – again, a tunic style  that skims over like this will camoflauge a multitude of sins.  The shirt just looks so comfy, doesn’t it?

I’ve paired everything with coral chandelier earrings by Amrita Singh because almost everyone can wear coral (check out the little hearts!), and adorable lace-up “Jasmine” pumps from TopShop USA that come in two other colors.  More color!

Finally, two great Kate Spade bags; Union Square Opus in yellow is a structured hobo style  that also includes an adjustable shoulder strap (two bags for the price of one!)  and comes in lots of other cheery colors; Tamarind Cove Kyle is a nubby cotton tote that also comes in navy.  Collect both. :)

.

Pink is the New Black

L to R: BCBG blouse, $113; Rachel Pally dress $248, Milly sweater $202, Kate Spade case $125, Oliver Bonas Necklace £6, Coach bag $358, Costume National skirt, 198.

Okay, there’s a lot to look at in this set, pr0n petunias!  In the middle is Rachel Pally’s “Carrie” dress, which comes in sizes 14-24.  (This is Pomegranate. See it in Baltic and Blossom @ Nordstrom); to the right is my favorite designer, Milly, with a Cashmere Rugby Polo Sweater from Revolve Clothing; back on the left is a BCBG flutter sleeve pleated blouse (WANT THESE TWO), available at Bluefly.

If you’ve got the legs, show them off in this hot pink pleated mini-skirt by Costume National @ Zappos Couture.  I’d tone down the rest of the outfit.  Maybe a pair of flat boots…and a thin turtleneck sweater with 3/4 sleeves I’m thinking.

Back around again, how much do you love this purple Coach leather Sabrina?  Go ahead and splurge, the little glass beads right above it are only £6 at OliverBonas.com!  Colorful accessories like that are great to brighten up a neutral outfit, like a suit.  Try pairing lavender with something unexpected like brown or green.  You can stow all your accessories in the Kate Spade patchin place large colin; it’s big, over 7″ wide.  There are two smaller cases on the website if you’re looking.

..
Bringing up the rear is another one of my favorite topics: dresses!  (I love dresses!)  Petite frames should jump at Shoshanna’s fuchsia silk square link dress; curvy girls of any size stay away.  It’s a shame since my heart is breaking over the pops of turquoise and orange on it.

Think Spring

Top, going clockwise: Shoshana dress, $210; Suzi Chin for Maggy, $128 ; Yoanna Baraschi, $220; Emilia blouse, $38; Vera Wang dress, unavailable; Design History ermine dress $72

Plus sizes, I never forget you.  I fell in love when I saw this green matte jersey shift dress by Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique.  If you click on the picture to see it larger, you can see the banded neck and hem, which I think is a great detail; it comes in sizes 14w-24w at Nordstrom.

Lookie at the cobalt blue used again for this ’40’s styled Yoana Baraschi silk swing dress.  I’m just not sure a pale-face like your dear blogger can wear cobalt.  If I can, I’m snatching up this dress when it goes on sale at Bluefly.

The “Emilia” red blouse is also for plus sizes; it’s a wrap style, which works on almost everyone, and would look fab on it’s own with a pair of dressy pants and heels, or under a suit.  It’s going fast and is available in a smattering of sizes >14 in Tomato, Black and Chocolate at b&lu (Go ahead.  We’ll wait.).

Almost last, but by no means least is a Vera Wang dress, which seems to have become extinct.  Ah well, it was nearly $500, anyway.  Can I offer you a green Vera Wang in a size 8 as an apology?  I promise I’ll make it up to you with a carmine red Design History jersey pleat dress.  This also has a very sweet, retro feel to it, and would look fantastic with a pair of classic square heel pumps like these.

This should keep you shopping for a while, pr0n pals!  Do let me know what you think; I love your comments.

Until then, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

Pr0n Spotlight: Betsy & Iya Jewelry

Pronsters, today’s post is a long overdue post not only about jewelry, but a spotlight on a blogger & designer friend of mine in Portland, Oregon: Betsy & Iya Jewelry.   Betsy sells absolutely lovely and innovative metal vintage designs at prices you’ll love just as much.

.

$35

$35

Normissima Lacy Racy earrings are made out of vintage lace!  They’re stiffened overnight, and then have a sterling silver wire added to them.  Aren’t they stunning?  When was the last time you had a pair of big earrings that didn’t drag down your ears, much less that were made out of real vintage lace?

.

$49

$49

Imagine the complements you’ll get wearing The Grand Key Necklace.  She’s taken a sterling silver chain and attached to it three keys at varying lengths in varying metals.

The necklace ranges in length from 16 to 20″, but she’ll be happy to customize it for you if you like.  It’s good to have friends!

Sunset is attached to Sterling Silver 3″ drop.  Scowley, wouldn’t they look great with the Diane Wrap Dress you just bought from Budget Pr0n?  I’m just saying!

.

$25!

$25!

If winter is bringing you down, and you need a pop of color in your life, BetsyandIya has Rich Red Vintage Deco Earrings.

These are made from real vintage 1950’s plastic in this divine deep red color, and then attached to sterling silver wires.

They’re 2.5″ long, but again can be customized for your preference. They make me want to get my ears re-pierced…any excuse to go shopping, right pr0n stars?

.

.

$39

For something still colorful, but a bit more mellow, consider these real Agate Sunset Earrings.  Since it’s real Agate, each one is different and unique  (Just like you.  Awww.)

I’m not sure why, but these actually make me think of the moon.  I’d wear them with a different hue of one of the colors in the earrings,  like the turquoise Missphit top from Recession Pr0n.

.

$45

$45

Personally though, I’m jonesing for her Asymmetrical Copper Square Girl Necklace, which is part of the appropriately named “Stunning Metal Vintage” collection.

I’m just going to go ahead and quote Betsy here: “The centerpiece is antique Victorian Gothic copper, which measures 28mm.

There are three subtle, delicate sterling silver chains linked to one silver gunmetal chain. The back is a sterling silver clasp handcrafted by me that hooks into a unique hook of chain.  The necklace extends farthest to about 20″ at the tip of the centerpiece.  I can adjust the necklace to any size you wish.  Everything was designed and created by me.”

I guess I’d better start saving my copper pennies.  Are pennies still copper?  Inquiring minds want to know.

.
Anyway, do take a moment to check out Betsy’s own blog, where she has outfits of the day, and stores that she likes, and give her some Shopping Pr0n love.

More than ever, it was good for me! Tell me, was it good for you?

Pure Pr0n

It’s good to see you my little pr0n dumplings.  Did you miss me?  Say you did.  Tonight’s post is what this blog is all about: pure pr0n.  No holds barred, the best of the best of the fashion the web has to offer at any price from any designer.  The only requirement is that it gets your engine running: heart rate faster, pupils dilated, slightly flushed – the whole nine yards.  But enough talk, let’s get busy.

.

I have good news, dumplings; I’m in love.  It’s true: I’m in love with a handbag.  This is via the store/site Hayden-Harnett NYC , which I’d never heard of until I read Shopahol Hangover, and really – who among us hasn’t had a fashion hangover? Amirite?

Be warned this is a slim tote. “Din?” I hear you asking, “What means this ‘slim tote’?  What are the implications for me?”  Due time, dumplings.  Due time.

What it means is that a) the handle drop is 3.5 inches.  This bag is meant to be carried jauntily in the crook of your arm. “But Din,” I hear you ask, “I can’t carry much if it’s hanging on the crook of my arm.”  Precisely, lumpkins.

This “Oryx Clutch” is meant “for a night on the town”.   At 1.5″ deep, there’s enough for a light cardigan, your cell phone, wallet, condoms (we have had this talk, haven’t we?), and perhaps a pair of slippers for when those fabulous pumps feel a wee bit less than fabulous.  $325, coincidentally ships 3/25.

.

But my love is fleeting and fickle.  From the people at Simply Yours who brought you Gok Wan, comes Simply Be for plus-size clothing like this Big Button Jacket, available in (UK) sizes 14-32!

This jacket is made in machine washable, uber-soft velour and is fully lined.  Looks like 3 buttons with a tab closure on the bottom.  It’s car-coat length, so it’s hitting around mid-thigh.

The jacket comes in three colors – this is Ochre; there’s also Burnt Orange and Green, which is sort of…minty.

Let’s talk turkey £50, which Google tells me is about $72.00 these days.  Sadly, Simply Be does not ship to the U.S. yet, but I’m thinking about a Pr0n Cultural Exchange program.

If someone wants to buy from Simply Yours or Simply Be, contact me and I’ll see if I can arrange for a UK friend to ship in exchange for sexual favors my undying love and a favor to be returned later.

.

But my lovely lemons cannot go naked underneath their new coats!  No no, that will not do.  And so I give you this actual vintage 60’s  red wool knit suit, courtesy of  Couture Allure.  When I say actual vintage, I mean actual vintage. There’s one of these, so if you want it – go get it.  We’ll still be here.

The chest is 40″, the waist is elasticized, so it’s 30″ not stretched out.  I would add several more inches to that in terms of actual capacity.  The sleeves are 18″ from the shoulder seam, so 3/4 length? and the top is meant to be looser than the skirt, which is 20″.

It’s 100% wool with a side zipper on the skirt.  Check out the website for actual condition information, but it’s $55.00.  Pr0n Approved.

.

Now, my under size 14 pr0nistas love vintage as well, and I have something for you.  Can you say Vintage ’60’s DIOR??  Let me repeat myself VINTAGE DIOR, PEOPLE.  I’m calm – I’m calm.  This is an original Christian Dior from the 1960’s sold by Neiman Marcus.  The fabric is tobacco brown in ribbed silk (ribbed silk!)

Please look at the detail on this dress.  The darting at the bust that leads down to the side seaming.  The skirt portion hits at low waist with a pleated bow detail.  The bodice is a scoop neck with cap sleeves. *sigh*

The dress closes with a center back metal zipper and has a brown China silk lining.  It is interlined in cotton batiste for added body.”

The measurements are kind of interesting; they’re not what you typically see in sizing today.  Bust – 37″, waist 27″, hips 40″.  Shoulder to waist – 16″, shoulder to shoulder 16″.  I’m envisioning someone curvy and petite in this dress.

If you have a special occasion coming up, look no further – plunk your $450 right here.

.

Why don’t we finish these outfits?  Try these green and yellow tear drop dangles from ShopTwigs.com. Or these simple yellow stone earrings, also from Shoptwigs.

The teardrops combine yellow and lime green; wear them with neutrals, wear them with anything that has either color in it, wear them with navy – just wear them!

Originally $163, they’re on sale for $82. (Makes me want to get my ears re-pierced).

The yellow stones, which are just so classic and will go with anything are 3/4″ wide with a 1″ drop, and sell for $110.

.

Both these dresses cry out for a wonderful pump (Can you hear the dresses crying, Clarice?)  For the vintage red wool, I recommend simplicity and modernity, both of which you can find in these suede Bottega Veneta platform pumps.

Did I mention they were suede?  Yes, well – 4.5″ heel with a 1″ platform (remember pumpkins, that means it’s going to feel like a 3.5″ heel).

They have an almond shape toe, cone shaped heel and a molded platform and heel.  You can purchase them for $690 at Net a Porter.  Save the economy, buy Bottega Veneta!

.

The Dior calls for something more delicate – Dior generally does.  One must be a lady in Dior. Once you’re out of the Dior, all bets are off – I’m just saying.  These red patent leather Jimmy Choos are all wrong but I’m showing them to you anyway.  Because it’s my blog; I can do that.

Red. Patent Leather. Mary Janes. Jimmy Choo.  Do you need to know anything else?

Fine.  Rounded toe, leather upper, leather lining.  Adjustable leather strap along vamp. 4″ heel, made in Italy

.

Ah, men!  I’ve neglected you!  Unless you have a shoe fetish in which case you should be all set.

Well that was exciting.  I opened up my men’s file and found…a belt.  Fear not! I come bearing pr0n.  Feast your eyes on this Vintage by La Rosa ’60’s car coat.

This is a mint condition original car coat from the ’60’s.  Traditional collar, long sleeves with rolled cuffs and decorative buttons.

Chest width from underarm to underarm is 20″, sleeve length from shoulder to cuff is 24.5″, and length from neck to hem is 40″.

La Rosa is a vintage boutique on Haight Street in San Francisco, so if you’re nearby – stop in!  If not, head over to eLuxury.com and make sure you have $400 available, credit or debit.

.

.If vintage isn’t your bag, never fear.  Barney’s Co-op is here!  I’d love to see my suitors in this Marc by Marc Jacobs Happy Face Cardigan.  Exclusively at the Co-op (man that cracks me up.  $900 clothes at a “co-op”), this light grey cotton v-neck cardigan sweater has a contrast yellow placket , two front pockets and a happy face logo over the left chest.

It’s also available in sort of a heathered gray with a contrast pink placket.  Equally cute!

Why not slip on a pair of dark jeans and these Alexander McQueen bark zip-up ankle boots, and call that special gal pal of yours to go out for a malt?

.Now it seems to me that every time I feature lingerie, my hits go up.  Maybe you all are just a bunch of pervs, but as long as you keep reading, I really don’t care.

Besides, I want to show you this handmade cami and shorts from On the Inside (via Smashing Darling):”Sassafrass” cami and “Forget Me Not Panties”.  Each are handmade in New York City, and the pantiliner is made of organic cotton.

The designer says it’s a very soft cream colored lace with pink detail.  The panties are definitely low rise, but flattering to one’s booty.

The cami has curved cups and plush, adjustable gold straps.

If you’re a small C or below and need just a bit of support rather than underwire, these pieces really look delightful.

The Cami is $35, panties are $20.  Comparable to less that anything you’d find in a good department store, and wouldn’t you rather your money go to a real person anyway?

.

I’m going to show you lovelies two more pieces from On the Inside, because I stumbled across someone’s blog earlier, who was complaining that she couldn’t find a simple cotton, non-underwire bra (I swear it was complete coincidence.)

You have no idea how much I wish I would wear this organic cotton “Summersweet Bra” Mint cotton lined in cocoa with a cross-back for extra support.  The bra is $34 (which I would totally pay if I thought it would work on Olga and Helga here). Matching low-rise panties are $20.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Okay.  Is there anything we haven’t covered (get it? covered? get it? yeah.)  Oh, crap. I promised like 12 million people skirts.

If you’ve got a little more flexibility in your wardrobe, or just want a cute skirt, check out this classic Collectif pencil skirt.  It’s meant to be worn slightly low-rise and it comes in baby-blue, pale pink and lovely lemon yellow.

It’s available in UK sizes 8 – 20 and they do ship to the U.S. and Europe.  Only two left in this particular style and it’s £10 . Check out the rest of their selection to make shipping costs worthwhile.

.

For a more classic skirt with a more classic fit, over at ShopBop I found this purple crepe skirt by Black Halo.  It has rounded pockets at the hip with button flap detail, a hidden back zipper and notch at the back waistband (perhaps for a better fit?).  It’s 23″ long, made in the U.S.A., sizes 0-10 for $230.

.

.

.Rounding out tonight’s catch is this cute as a button “Shorthand” skirt, back at Smashing Darling .

White cotton denim with a front tab with buttons that cover a zipper.

.

This is by designer Laura Dawson…annnnnd I don’t have any manufacturing information.  $50 – currently available xs – m, which the site tells me is going to run a little small.   I’m calling it 0-8, even though they say 2-10.

.

Last one for tonight, and then I leave you.

If any of you are truly and I mean really and truly fashion forward, then I have a gem of a skirt for you.

High waisted, black skirt, with gathers going down the front and sides. 100% cotton, machine washable. by Zeto Clothing.

“Zeto pays utmost attention to detail – using only the highest quality original fabrics, custom-dyes, light weight inks, and in-house artwork to punctuate each piece of clothing”.  $88, with more specific styling details at the website.

.

My most precious pr0ners, good night good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night ’til it be morrow.

.

Once again – it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?
