The Zulily iPhone App is the most dangerous thing I’ve ever installed on my phone.
I was a latecomer to the wonderful world of Zulily, mainly because I was too lazy to actually go to their website. But somehow I managed to stumble across the iPhone app, and here I am. A complete Zulily addict.
“Oh! What a fabulous dress!! And only $12.99? It will be a perfect Spring dress for Ali!”
“Ali would LOVE that tutu!! And only $10.99!!”
And then I realize that $12.99 a few times over really adds up. And that one click ordering is a little scary.
But their stuff is so cute…..
Granted, they have a sketchily high selection of smock…
(and you know how hard this is hard for me to admit)
even some of their smock is…
Now I would still never buy it, but if I were to ever lose my mind and trash my convictions, something like that would be on my shopping list.
Ack!! What AM I DOING???
CURSE YOU, Zulily!!
Blessedly, every time I’ve almost stabbed my eyes out for being seduced into actually liking something smocked, I’d run into a garment that was slightly less than alluring.
Like for instance, club wear for children.
Or, perhaps, clothing that is shouting a message that I… just maybe… don’t want my daughter to be adopting as her own.
(However, if you need a present for a Mom on Toddlers and Tiaras, I have found the one for you!)
And then there’s the uncomfortably worded boy’s clothes.
But my eyes have never stretched wider and my eyeballs have never ventured further outside of their sockets than when I stumbled across this treasure.
WHOOOOA…. what was that???
I had to see it closer.
Well saddle up a horse and call me Daisy.
I hadn’t gotten the news that the wardrobe from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas had become acceptable infant wear!!
And this was no fluke sewing machine accident – they offered a Saloon full of choices.
Pink and white hearts, perhaps.
Or for the more Goth babe, you can always go Vampire Black.
Or perhaps you’re looking for the perfect Infant April Fool’s outfit.
Or for your husband to instantaneously divorce you.
In either case, I would definitely recommend that you go with Leopard Print.
Of course, diapers are easier to change if you go for the camisole option, so do be sure to consider it.
And then, as if all of that wasn’t skin-crawlingly repugnant enough, there’s always the Infant Bridal Collection.
For the love of all that is good, somebody please bring back the smock.
