Tools of Attraction: The First Day of Spring
Coming out of a New York winter is cause for celebration.

Thanks, I actually just bought it on my way to work this morning. I was wearing a totally different outfit, a raincoat. I was overdressed. So when I was walking to work, I passed by Forever 21, saw this dress in the window, bought it, and put it on.
Are there any outfits at home you’ve been saving for spring?
Well, I gained some weight since last summer so I have some dresses I’m going to make into tops. I just bought a sewing machine. My ass has gotten bigger, so I’ll make them into crop tops.
So do you work in fashion?
No, I used to. I work at a law firm now.
How have you had to adjust your style for the new job?
Well, I still don’t wear a bra to work. But I wear blazers now.
Why no bras?
They’re just uncomfortable. I find them unnecessary.
Do people at work care?
When I started there, I found out they referred to me as “the girl who doesn’t wear a bra.” But I guess now, they’re not so shocked by it. It’s a pretty conservative environment, but I refuse to dress that way.
So what would you wear on a date?
Something breezy, something that flows. I really like silk and chiffon. Lace. Layering different colors.
Any spring trends that are a no-go?
Cut-off shorts. I still see them everywhere. It’s really annoying. I don’t like them.
Any dealbreakers when it comes to what your date’s wearing?
Yea, I don’t like men in flip-flops. Board shorts. Khakis. Anything with big pockets.
Wow, that was a quick answer.
Yeah, I’ve thought about this a lot. I just steer clear of guys who show their feet in public.
