Fun with Shopping Carts

The party girl in me really wishes this post actually had something to do with a combination of rowdy fun and shopping carts, but it does not.

Instead it’s a follow up to the post I wrote about my Urban Outfitter purchases. My sister, who keeps a blog over at, and who has been known to guest blog for me, AND who is far more classy than me, sent me an email after reading about my very Lou-like purchases to share her own recent shopping cart revelation. Not that I think it was a revelation as much as it was, hey! Looking at your style in the sphere of online shopping cart collections is pretty fun!

I thought it was funny because at the end of the day, we have very, very different styles and I love that. And wanted to share it. Because she is adorable and wears stuff I would never think to wear and pulls it off like a babe. Like a classic, preppy babe. And… now remember how difficult it can be to write after a few glasses of wine. Ahem.

So, let’s take a look at what she chose, shall we? As I collected the photos I kept shaking my head like, no … but then being like, yeahhhh, when I started to think of her.


I would never in a trillion years wear this, which is why I really want her to send me a picture of her wearing it because I have no doubt she will show me how adorable it is on her. Ok…maybe a million years. Cause I’ll admit I could MAYBE see myself throwing it on in this color if I were borrowing it from her:

She also got this blazer:

I’m not a blazer person, are you? I don’t deny that it can look really babe-a-licious though….

Pick your poison, although I probably would have given first prize to Gwyneth … and who the holy hell is that Zooey Deshchanel crackhead looking lady? Is it Z.D. in character? I dunno, am I drunk? Yikes.

Anyway, I could, or would never, try to pull off the blue my sis went with. Black, maybe. And only black and shades of black, like gray.

Moving on!


Ok. These are cute:

I don’t know about pairing it with that sweat shirt, JCREW, and damn that model has grossly airbrushed skinny legs, but the shorts, the shorts are cute. My sis is wearing them out tonight and promised us a picture, so she better uphold my statement that these are cute.

She also got this skirt:

But again, in some weird blue color. I mean, it’s not that weird … I guess I just don’t wear a lot of blue. The skirt itself is tres classic. Very her. And basic, and well, just something you can’t really go wrong with as a wardrobe staple.


She is coveting this purse:

Which … really? I mean, again, it’s really classic. But a type of classic you could find the worn version of at a thrift store. How much is J. Crew charging for this? Probably like, $300 cause they’re assholes.

But you see? How cohesive is this for her? Very. I’m sure she’d sit around and call my clothes “hipster” and I sit around and say, classic, classic, classic, but that’s what she is! In style as well as in demeanor. Classy broad. And her online shopping cart proves it.

Now I just want to go fill up more shopping carts full of shit I can’t really afford because it’s just really fun to see the collections you can create.

Try it. Trust me. I mean, if you’re bored. Or maybe if you’re actually even shopping. … haha, ok wine.

Until next time … xoxo, Lou

PS – Grimes is really good music to blog to…and she makes me miss my bangs.

    PS- Trust her on the shorts. They’ll be great, especially with colored tights!

      Oh phoeb’s, yes! You and my sister are my J. Crew girls! Remember when I borrowed that leopard dress from you for my OTHER sister’s wedding?? You too should totes meet and go shopping. Love you classy bitches (from a dive bar where I’m drinking Budweiser) … (In a Canadian tuxedo and Vans).
