My Slightly Inebriated Late Night Internet Purchase

The other weekend, my husband had a guy’s night out. I decided to crack open some sparkling wine that I needed to sample for a post and get some work done (seriously, sometimes my job just rocks…and other times I am juggling two kids while trying to meet a deadline or take photos and chaos ensues, no dinner on the table, you get the idea). Moving on…

At around 11pm, I started reading researching Valentine’s Day presents for another post I was working on (Helzberg Diamonds– check out my post if you want to buy yourself something! I won’t tell!) and I realized that we don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day together. We don’t buy gifts, we sometimes exchange cards, but it really doesn’t have any significance in our relationship. Normally, I wouldn’t care about this because I totally understand that it is a Hallmark holiday, blah blah blah, but 1/2 way into a bottle of bubbly and researching diamond pendants, I got a little sad. So what did I do? What any kinda sad, kinda buzzed girl does when she is alone on a Saturday night with her credit card number memorized- I shopped.

Um, so this is what I bought.

Moschino Barbie iPhone Case

Yep. It is a Moschino Barbie iPhone Case.

Well, looks like you will see me rockin’ this on the daily! I kinda love it. It is ridiculous, impractical, yet thrillingly juvenile and kitschy. I would normally dismiss it, second guessing, thinking, “Do I really need this? I’ll bet people will laugh. Yep, they will. Will I ever use it?” And on and on. I recently read this article that said take a look at what you wore when you were a child to truly get a sense of your sartorial style. I took the author up on her advice for this one- the 5 year old Cheryl would have LOVED this!!

And my kids want to use it all the time. Too bad, suckers!!! This is mom’s phone…um…mom’s Barbie phone to be exact.
