What’s competitive shopping & why it can be too fun

Marc by Marc Jacobs Revolution Zip Tote Whats competitive shopping & why it can be too fun

The folks at Shopbop are really clever because they were able to heighten my interest to actually spend time over two days trying to grab this ordinary looking Marc by Marc Jacobs Revolution Zip Tote just because it was on sale. It was actually a matter of “the fastest fingers win” because bags from the Marc by Marc Jacobs label are really popular and so only a limited number were released for sale at certain hours. I had already missed a couple of bags from the label and so I was forced to strategize. How?

The necklace, the husband & the spiked collar dog

My husband says the most unkind words to me when it comes to what I wear. Actually downright mean and exasperating most of the time but he has a way of making it sound so funny, I usually can’t help but laugh out loud. Like when he saw this spikes necklace, the first thing he said was that it reminded him of a bulldog cartoon. And you know what? It occurred to me that he was…right. (o_O)

Thanks to some complimentary gift certificates I’d received, this Pour La Victoire Tate Satchel is my new carryall from Shopbop which is roomy enough to carry a bowling ball in there…LOL. Okay, the design and color is a tad boring but it fits my objective of having something sturdy and solid for a change. I’m definitely loving the buttery soft leather and the fact that it can function as both a shoulder bag as well as a hand carry.
