Spam yes. HOWEVER.

I don't know if I mentioned that Mr. S and I bought a store back in October - a clothing store.  We did so that my sister - who has managed it for years - could one day take over and have it all to herself, because she's awesome at making the place hip, cool, and filled with things of awesome.  (Those of you who have her friended knew about her crazy former boss, etc.)

She's in the process of getting the website up with merchandise, etc.  and you can see it here.  Hip, hip, hip.  But great things I love, and I'm fashion trend retarded.  You can email her (on the site) for purchases outside of the DFW area, so really, what are you waiting for?  Make an honest woman of my sis!  She's in the process of adding pics right now, so bookmark the site and visit often!

*beams with pride*

(although I do wish there was less grey.  THERE.  I've said it. Sorry, Beth.  It's your site, so I'm holding my peace now.)

How very cool! The pics already there look very fun and funky.

*SQUISH!* Beth has a real eye for hip and cool. Her customers LOVE her. It's a teeny shop, but everything in there is neat. And hee - her whole focus now is to make it very New York. Of course this means I'll have to bring you on as a creative consultant. :D

You are a good sister to pimp her out like that. The only thing I'm not happy with is how you're 'holding your piece'. I think that's for private tawk. Maybe holding your PEACE? Put that thing away.

I AM HOLDING MY GUN. I thought that was obvious. ha

#1, the icon is HILARIOUS. #2, I am SALIVATING over these plants: http://www.danielscactus.hypermart.net/indexin.html because I am a plant geek extraordinairre.

Oh in that case. Hold your 'piece' as long as you'd like. MY BODY EATS BULLETS BITCH! I like that. Good one.

*beams* I am SO proud of her. She's an excellent shopkeeper, it has to be said. Personal shopping at its finest!

*squish* Hi, sweetheart! Surviving the remodel? It's getting CLOSE TO BEING DONE, omg.

Very attractive site. I love the kimono dress, but it's five thousand miles away wand would only fit me if I had half my body surgically removed.

Jan. 19th, 2007 09:59 pm (UTC)
Ha!! I have a few friends in the UK that I know want some things - if the shop ever takes off as a huge success, I'm sure shipping things far away can be arranged! :)

I love love LOVE that kimono dress. I wouldn't wear it, because I have body issues, but I LOVE how it looks.
Jan. 19th, 2007 11:55 pm (UTC)
It's such beautiful colours. I wear such colours and would happily wear teh style, but I'm a US size 18-20, so there's no hope for me there. :-(

I shall keep an eye on the site, though. But tell her big girls like pretty clothes too!

Hi! You are the Retailer Extraordinaire?

I know sourcing pretty stuff for big girls is hard. I just like to wail about it a bit at times. If you ever found that kimono in a big size I'd buy it like a shot, shipping to England and all!

Pretty site you have there.

I don't know how it happened but I have *finally* started taking an interest in what I wear. I want to keep my eye on here. Thanks for the heads up . . . and good luck to your sis!

And I love grey. I've been told I'm a color-hater.
Jan. 20th, 2007 04:57 pm (UTC)
Hahahaha, I love grey, too. But my thoughts are on the website it doesn't give it enough *pop* if that makes sense. My sister totally disagrees with me, and she's the artist, so....

*grins* Thanks, Joy, for the fb!

Cool clothes although not my current life style, so sad. My single thought on those shoes was if I wore any of those, I would fall over and break my ankles. (One inch heels is normally as high as I go. I'm short and I don't care who knows it.)

COOL NURSERY! Have you ever checked out plant delights? I wouldn't buy from there, but they do carry incredible plants.
Jan. 20th, 2007 04:59 pm (UTC)
Very cool clothes. And I can't wear everything, either, because I am a dull staid mom-type. But I like how the stuff looks.

(Ha, I TEWTALLY love high heels, though, and look forward to the few occasions when I can wear them!)

I haven't checked out plant delights, yet. I'm woefully behind on garden websites, as I tend to stick closer to home for native plants - extreme temps here, and all. But I will! I LITERALLY spent hours yesterday looking at the succulents' plant site. And made a list. :)

Oh *is a shopaholic*
*stares at kimono dress*
BTW you are an awesome sister.
Jan. 20th, 2007 05:00 pm (UTC)
Isn't that dress ADORABLE??? (And if you notice, she says for outside orders to click the email link. Ahem. She can special order stuff.)

Not to, you know, encourage you or anything. *beams*
Jan. 21st, 2007 01:38 am (UTC)
It is adorable and I have some really cute Kenneth Cole Louis heel Mary Janes that would look real cute with it.
*goes back to look at sizing info*
Jan. 20th, 2007 06:12 am (UTC)
Omg, the kimono dress is so damn cute. *ponders breaking no new clothing until finishes losing weight thing*
Jan. 20th, 2007 05:00 pm (UTC)
The great thing about the shape of that dress is how it will look good now on you, and even better minus five pounds. (But I've SEEN you. You don't need weight loss! *hugs*)
Jan. 20th, 2007 03:49 pm (UTC)
40s pumps, OMG! Must. Have. Now.

Thanks for the link.
Jan. 20th, 2007 04:55 pm (UTC)
I know!! There's a pair that's not onine yet, but they are patent black leather with a peek-a-boo cut out and a teeny little red bow at the top of the cutout. And on the side of the wee platform portion of the sole is a stamped pattern of bows. Eeee! Adorable!!

Thanks so much for the feedback! *is so proud of sister*

Didn't you have a pair like that? I didn't see them today...

Maybe they're dream shoes!

Hee! Aw, thanks, Anne! I went in today and got a CUTE little hoodie sweatshirt - I think she has a picture up, in fact. It's olive with birds on the back. Neat!

*hugs you*

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
