I Have an Interwebs Shopping Problem

Thanks to One Kings Lane, Rue La La, and Gilt Group I have an interwebs shopping addiction. Most the time I just skim the email and see if there is a designer I recognize, but I always check One Kings Lane.

Here's a sampling of some things I've purchased from One Kings Lane in the past year...

R Nichols Notecards, Salt & Pepper Shakers, Nesting bowls, Danica Studio's Tea Towels


From Rue La La, I've purchased a pair of pink Puma running shoes for my honeymoon and sexy bra and matching panties... but can't find those pictures. Today, I bought these Charles David "Souffle" Berry Patent Flats.

From Gilt, my site I've been a member of the longest, I've only recently started making purchases. In the past 5 months I've bought...


Wish I was at home so I could tell you who makes the bowl and toaster, sorry. The cookbooks are A Return to Cooking by Eric Ripert & Michael Ruhlman and Frank Stitt's Southern Table. I can't wait for April, when I have the whole month off from school and I can actually read them and perhaps even cook something! P.S. I also purchased a kitchen scale from Gilt too!

Today, from Gilt, I bought this Vera Wang Bridesmaid dress to wear to the (at least) 4 weddings I have coming up this summer.


See I have a problem! Today I purchased two things in a matter of 30 minutes. Perhaps for Lent I should have given up interwebs shopping?

Do you purchase a lot of things from the interwebs?

Do you need help with your addiction?

I share your problem. I bought rubber shoes from Gilt the other day. Rubber. Stilettos. What's wrong with me?

that's a beautiful dress!!! i love it!

i used to subscribe to one king's lane (great full day blog turned me on to that), but when i kept finding things like $600+ throw pillows (not exaggerating here), even though things like that would be mixed in with other more affordable as well as equally unaffordable stuff, too - i decided to end my subscription. not only because of what i considered outrageous prices for mostly decorator or entertaining items, i found myself wanting to purchase things i wasn't even looking to purchase originally - and that is never a good thing. like i don't already want to purchase a million other things!

i'm glad for you that you've found some things that you like, though.

Susan - I know what you mean, that is why I don't buy things over a certain price and I always Google what I'm about to buy to make sure the site is really the best price :)
Most the things I've purchased are things I've needed anyway and got something nicer, cuter or cheaper this way. It's hard not to go crazy though.

I love the dress! It's going to look beautiful on you! You have found some awesome things. I still have yet to buy from Gilt or One Kings Lane. I know lame. I'm trying to resist because I know once I give in it will all go downhill.

I love those bowls. I've only purchased a pair of Pumas and some letterpressed cards. I'm always too slow or can't make up my mind. :(
