A Cure For Shopping?

The sight of this fake fur jacket triggered my shopping addiction, big time. To make things worse, it’s called the Wolf Jacket. It seemed like destiny, if destiny were a voice in my head saying “Buy it, put it on your credit card, do it, do it, do it!”

In a stroke of unwitting genius, I asked my kid webmaster to stick my head on the lookbook model.

VOILA!!! It looks stupid on me! I don’t need to buy it. Free at last!

    Well, I think it looks better on your disembodied head than the original model, but I would steer away from buying it anyway, the whole world is about to be flooded waist deep in fake fur stuff and it will make you hate it.

    If you buy it with your credit card, it’s free- remember!?

    skye – You’re right, I’m ALMOST hating it already. xo

    TheShoeGirl – Things are only free at Nordstrom, silly!

    I think it looks great on you. But stay away anyway. My latest buying experience ended in tragedy…horrible, horrible tragedy.

    Your webmaster’s work should appear here more often…specifically with putting you in frame with a houseboy…or would that be weird?

  5. You need to trademark the cure!

    Am I the only one that’s wondering what’s going on the extra roadkill that’s body slammed onto the top of the model’s boots?

    Tell your webmaster to get a grip! He forgot that you always, but always, tip your head over your left shoulder when being photographed.

    (I know, I know, it’s difficult to get the staff these days!)

    The lookbook model has such a stupid look on her face. If she were squatting down in the pic, I’d swear she was a blogger.

    The jacket actually looks great on you. Don’t let your webmaster do that again, it is destined to backfire….

  9. Cricket9 says:

    Actually, doesn’t look half bad on you; now, the boots would look stupid on anyone.

  10. It’d probably look great on you, but I don’t want to be an enabler.

  11. Iron Chic says:

    Gnarlitude thinks you are KILLING it in that jacket!
    Does that help?

    I wanted a “Carol” coat so much that it hurt but worried that it might not be ethical to skin imaginary monsters.

    I think you’d look great in that jacket. But, like Skye, I’m going to say to stay away because of the upcoming glut of faux-ness. If I tell you that Shoes and Mom of Shoes are both CURATING that jacket will it make you want it less? And that they’ll accessorize it with lots of awful animal jewelry?

  14. Bevitron says:

    What are you talking about? It doesn’t look stupid on YOU – YOU make IT look stupid. Uuuhh, that didn’t sound right… That is to say, it’s inherently stupid, and you, UNstupid, being in it, intensify the contrast…

    In the first picture the model looks, in stance and facial expression, like she just pissed herself and she’s thinking, oh shit, it’s running down my right leg so I have to move my left leg over, and maybe nobody will notice. But it’s too late because the fur or whatever that shit is got wet and flat.

  15. After Kenita pointed out the road kill I dislike it all! Except for the photoshopping, of course.

  16. You’ve got some photoshopin’ skills!

  17. Aja says:

    I think it’s terrible. Good call on not buying it.

  18. Carmel says:

    It looks like you’re enjoying wearing it.

  19. Mark says:

    You’re a genius! We never have to buy anything again, except for Photoshop!

    Look what crawled out of the Pharaoh’s tomb clutching a Mastercard and a pack of Pall Malls…

  21. This one is really great. Just found your blog through another blog. What a great project! I love toys, I love photographs — you have just made my day! Thank you! ~Lisa~I’m not very good at English but I hope you understand me 😉
