Why Do We Shop at Victoria’s Secret?

Let’s briefly talk about something that has been bothering me.

Ask any young woman where she buys her undergarments and she will most likely say Victoria’s Secret. Ask her why, and she will probably shrug her shoulders.

From commercials to billboards to fashion shows, Victoria’s Secret knows how to target audiences with branding and advertising. Young women grow up seeing thin models prancing around wearing pretty bras and panties and saying the word “bombshell” to advertise their lingerie. Victoria’s Secret is the idea of sexy, and that’s what young women want to be. So they lay out $30+ for a bra that may not even fit them that well, all because they want to be a part of an image, or the idea of an image. They want to be a member of the “Love Pink” Club.

Ladies, it’s time to open your eyes to the realization that you can get the same exact bra from Target, and the same exact mesh shorts from Nike, all for much cheaper!

Life So Far, Post-Grad

I am now a college graduate :o.

The big day came and went so quickly, and, ironically, it poured the entire day.

Tears were held back, hugs were had, and realizations were made.

Here are some things I realized:

  • I can now use the phrase, “When I was in college…”
  • From this point on, I’ll never not be working (unless I get laid off).
  • I’ll never have another winter or summer break.
  • I’ll only have weekends or after work or vacation time to do things I want to do.
  • I’ll never be walking distance from all of my best friends again.
  • I won’t have my own place for a while.

So, this is the real world. I start my first “big girl” job June 2. I’m excited and scared, of course. But I suppose it had to happen sooner or later, and I am quite lucky to have found a job so soon after graduating.

Here I come, world.
