So, a couple weeks ago I was watching the TV show “Happy Endings” (which, if you’re not watching it yet, please stay tuned for my vaguely threatening 10,000 word essay about why you should be), and the super stylish character Jane made a brief appearance in a cobalt blue toggle coat. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was my coat soulmate. I had to have it. After an hour of frantic Googling, I randomly found it on the Victoria’s Secret website (victory!), but it was sold out in my size (tragedy!). Unable to accept the reality that my dream coat was gone, I called their customer service hotline and told them my sob story. Guess what? They had one left in the whole country, in my size, for half price. Bought it. Boom. Best day of my life.
Since Amelia also acquired her dream coat after seeing it in a movie and obsessively tracking it down online, we thought we’d join forces and offer our best tips for others who are attempting to hunt down coats/dresses/shoes/jewelry/whatever from movie and TV wardrobes. Your quest will require patience, diligence, and a shit ton of Googling. Ready to get started? Check our step-by-step guide, after the jump! Keep reading »

In an effort to trim their budget down a bit (by a bit, I mean $2 billion), the US Postal Service has announced a plan to end Saturday mail and cut back to a five-day delivery schedule. As I’ve mentioned before, I am a huge fan of the postal service and I have a giant crush on my mailman, so this news comes as a crushing blow. And sometimes, when pain is this acute, there’s only one way to express it: in iambic pentameter. Read on for my embarrassingly dramatic Sonnet to the Saturday Mail… Keep reading »
So, by now you’ve probably seen the travesty that is this updated Anne of Green Gables cover (that’s it above, no joke). Apparently Anne as an awkward, freckled redhead is out; Anne as a hot, blonde, busty bombshell with bedroom eyes is in. If you’ve read the books, you know this ridiculous makeover actually renders most of the important plot lines completely irrelevant (we can’t really see Anne renouncing God for giving her perfect skin and wavy, golden hair), so we thought we’d help out the publishers by proposing a few updated story ideas for their updated heroine… Keep reading »
