Now I’m going to be dangerous. I knew I could do this but I had not looked into it. I am hoping to use my blog as more of a Twitter-type update thing. Although I still use Twitter. I’m kind of all over the Social Maposphere.
Today I have been wasting time shopping online. If you were to visit my Amazon Wishlist, my global shaky-feeling-I-want-it list, you would know the days I am working and the days I am lusting.
While I shop, this commercial, my favorite thing to see during movie previews, plays in my head:
So when I’m shopping, and I want this Prada Patina Satchel (which I could have bought pre-owned and at only $875) but am trying to convince myself that the B. Mak (at $155.60 on sale) is similar enough, I hear “You can get with this / or you can get with that.” My you usually wants to get with Prada.
What would work for me is if I could post my wishes and you guys could come back with reasonably priced alternatives. I’m a busy girl, really. I’ll show you – not how busy I am, but how easy I am to please.
“Shellie. The Prada is ridiculous. The Dooney & Bourke Florentine Vachetta Leather Medium Satchel, however, is close enough, and likely to die for. $345.00, which now sounds downright reasonable, donchathink?” Doesn’t anyone remember when I was dying to have the Judith Leiber Zaria Bag ($1095) which I had found on sale, in person, for $400? What if one of you had said, “You ought to look into the Stuart Weitzman Ruche for $256.50 or the Cole Haan Penny Mini Denney Bag for $131.40 in deep aubergine? Something like that. Or even, really, a Jessica McClintock Pleated Satin Frame ($40.60).
Leather. I mostly want leather. Sometimes I don’t, but I never, ever, want faux leather or PVC. Just sayin’.
Today I’m wanting, badly, this Cole Haan ‘Penny’ Small Denney Suede Satchel in red ($110).
It won’t be there long. Should I just make do with my purple suede, left, from Coldwater Creek that I bought ages ago for, what, $19?
Probably. To be continued.
