When I was young, or perhaps I should say when I was childless, one of my most significant forms of stress management was SHOPPING! I love to shop. I believe some people call this retail therapy. However, since Aiden came along and basically ruined shopping for me, turning it from stress management into stress manufacturing, I have pretty much given up shopping altogether. While this is good for the pocketbook, which has also suffered since the arrival of our not so little bundle of joy, it is not so good for my moral.
Enter online shopping! Don’t get me wrong, the internet will never replace the sights, sounds, smells, and excitement of hitting the shops with some girlfriends and scoring incredible bargains, but it’s something. It’s an outlet. And there is SO much out there that you would never find in an ordinary store in your local strip mall. One of my all-time favorite sites is ModCloth.com. Their retro style is amazing and I feel inspired almost every time I visit their site. They also have a blog called “Life in Style” that I have linked in my interests if you’d like to check it out. I think, if I could just perfect my money tree project, I would redesign my entire wardrobe based on items, or at least inspiration from their site. Here are a few of my recent favorites, just to peak your interest.
Love it. Do you know Trashy Diva? Another great site for pretty/retro clothing, in New Orleans.
Wow! I just checked it out. Very nice indeed. Thanks for the recommendation! And thanks for checking out my blog.
I think I would *love* a retro/pin up-ish bathing suit. I need to check out that store!
Do check it out. Like I said, if I had the money, I would buy my whole wardrobe there. It is quite fun and eclectic.
i love the polka-dot dress with the red bow! so cute!
I know! It’s all so very tempting.
I love Modcloth too! It’s a great little shop. They always have cute dresses.
