crazy8 ships internationally

Crazy8 finally ships outside the USA. More parents in more countries will have a chance to dress their brood in less expensive version of Gymboree from now on. There are no Crazy8 offline stores in Canada, for example. New collection is good, all green, blue, cream and orange.

Just received a newsletter with ‘Why Splurging Won’t Kill you’ subject line. Whoa, I have to keep it so I can show it to everyone! Get yourself something opulent for coming season and don’t leave out the accessories!

It turns out that it’s a letter about splurging in fats and carbohydrates while dieting. Okey…

my mornings

April 22nd, 2010 Posted in Dinnerware, Houseware, Opulent! Tags: , ,

My mornings are highly depending on how I wake up and what goes next. While I cannot control the quality of my sleep and waking time, I can have small secret fixings, like having my morning coffee from Chine bone. It doesn’t really matter if it’s a formal expensive piece of art or a casual one, it always works. It works so good so I cannot decide what to do with those. Eat from them? Put them on the wall so everyone can enjoy fine and vivid colors? Give them as gifts to my dearest ones? Cannot stop looking. Price tag isn’t wallet-friendly, but hey, life is short, eat your dessert now!

some like it hot too

Yes, they have it for toddlers and big kids in exactly the same color, vivid violet. Oceania blue for boys looks good as well. Sizes start from 3/4 (toddler) and go up to XL 14 (big kids). If you’re a size 0, you can fit in it yourself, just watch for sleeve length. Good thing is that the jacket is on sale, bad is that it’s a fleece jacket, not the shiny waterproof fabric thing they have for adults.

Do you remember that song?

It’s unusually nice and warm outside. Calm, almost sunny day. I’m dreaming of the seashore instead of chores. Do you remember that Chris De Burgh’s “Sailing away” song?

I wish I was sailing away, sailing away,
Sailing away, with you tonight, with you tonight

I guess I have to get a chores chart for myself. Or may be follow the flow and get a nice sailor outfit.

out of sync, out of sight

Last December I got a nice, hot and stylish Canada Goose Expedition parka in black from Holt Renfrew in Toronto, Canada. I liked it so much (hey, who wouldn’t when it was minus 15C outside!) so I decided to get it in red too. My reasoning was the following: it’s good for every day use, coyote fur kind of adds some flirting sense to it, but black is so classic, I want to get the same quality thing but in different color. For this particular model I remembered bright red and shiny steel in almost every size in store. But remember, I decided it almost two months later. Of course, they didn’t have the parka in store. Moreover, they did not have the entire fur and winter coats section in store at the end of January because spring styles just arrived.

Canada Goose business model is the same that for any other upscale merchandise, it never goes on sale. They also have the same models over and over again every season, adding only different colors and some limited-edition versions every year. Why not sell it all-year-round? Ok, I want too much, but what’s the reason to stop selling it in January? I may want a new winter coat till the end of winter, may be till the end of March. Sure, I enjoy to see what I’ll get in spring and summer before the seasons come, especially if the palette is appealing (read ‘no dark hues, no office style, lots of silk and linen’), but I cannot wear it now. Don’t get that model, ‘buy now, wear later’.

The story ended happily, I got the second one on-line. You can jump on the bandwagon on-line now, when the normals outside range from plus 3C to plus 13C and you, your kid or partner need some outerwear. Happy hunting tho, not every size is available. But there are sales ;)
