Happy Columbus Day everyone! Who else gets today off besides me? At least I think I get today off. When I checked my online calendar, the top was marked 'COLUMBUS DAY' and I had no appointments scheduled. What do you think - day off? Considering that it's currently 2am, I think I'll risk it tomorrow and justify my absence with the fact that it's a court holiday. 

I feel like it's been a while since I last blogged. I've actually missed all you special readers and frequent commenters! Perhaps because we all bonded so well over boy bands last week? Boys - can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. 

I took the weekend to catch up on some virtual treasure hunting. I much prefer online shopping to IRL in real life shopping. Online shopping just presents such a better deal from all sides of the rubik's cube: Coupon codes to save you $ome green, exclusive online items for all you kids who want to stand out from the rest of the F21 crowd, and if you're a tough egg to crack, how about stress free shopping from the warm comfort of your favorite faux sherpa lined hello kitty throw?  

I hate it when I've just broken a gnarly sweat scouring a modern indoor bazaar otherwise known as Forever 21 in a successful search for the perfect mixed metal spike bracelet, only to have it rudely snatched from me by a teenybopper half my size before my clammy paws have fully released, of course, the last perfect mixed metal spike bracelet, to try on a 'meh let's try this on for fun' jacket. 

And it's like, you know the competition has been stalking you too. She lurks behind every pillar that coincidentally doubles as a mirror, while you slyly catch glimpses of those scheming eyes and sketchy whispers to her accomplice. Hunger Games much?

Now up until last week I would have, no questions asked, busted my bum to score the perfect bauble necklace at the mothership of accessories suppliers. When you hit the accessories section at Forever 21, lights flash gold in every direction, a million bangles are jingling at once the beautiful sound that foreshadows a successful bag of loot; it's an accessories eye trip. 

So what changed last week? ShopLately. That's what changed. 

ShopLately is like Forever 21's bigger, badder sister who has more selection new items EVERYDAY - uhh what?! and the authority to command the Genie & his lamp to banish all the noise and 'mini-me's, so that you can get exactly what you want and what you didn't know you wanted without the stress and gnarly sweat. Forever 21 is an eye trip but ShopLately is Mind Baubling.

  3. Ahhhh you have created such a lovely color palette, yet again Lucy! It's really very rich looking :)
    I'm so happy I have the day off as well!! Although I wasn't so happy that my cat was being an absolute bugger this early in the morn... I was looking forward to sleeping in but he has an affinity to crawling under the covers and biting my butt (please don't ask, I have yet to figure it out). Then of course he was knocking things off counters and trying to shred the carpet... anything to get his mommy out of bed I guess. Glad I'll be able to take a nap this afternoon though!! Thanks Columbus!

  22. The only thing I hate with online shopping is the shipping. Well what do you know, I'm rhyming. I wanna feel the fabric more and I hate delayed shipping most. It's like delayed gratification.

  42. Hope you enjoyed your holiday (i was at work!)
    I think I actually prefer IRL shopping to online. You never know if you are going to like the fit/fabric/color until you have it in your hands, and by that time you've already had to wait for it to come, possibly pay for shipping, and if you dont like it worry about getting it back. which then takes a lot more time, potentially costing you more money, and you STILL don't know if a different size/color would be better, meaning you'd have to do it all over again.

    Even though I try to be smart about my online purchases, sometimes I still end up with that oddball thing I never did return that sits in my closet forever with the tags still on it.

    Plus, IRL stores often have better discounts in the clearance section.
