Zulily Zoo Singhs a Song for You

Bag: Betsey Johnson, ROSS Dress for Less

When I was a kid, there was a show called "Zoobilee Zoo."  It came on after "Reading Rainbow," I think, but wasn't even half as good.  It was kind of scary, actually, with grown people running around in animal suits and weird makeup.  But then, real zoos aren't my thing either, even if I did visit one last August.  (Nothing says good times like the smell of monkey poo wafting over the cart where they sell the corn dogs).  No, no reptile pavilion for me; I'm into sales, not scales -- unless they're on a pair of stilettos.  And when it comes to bargain hunting, Zulily is the zoo for me.  I'm growing increasingly obsessed with this online retailer, which offers limited time deals on name brand goodies, and, yes, some already cheap stuff, too.

My last take netted me a boatload (okay, dinghy) of Amrita Singh costume jewelry.  A fixture of the Bollywood stage, Singh designs colorful and ornate pieces as vibrant as any New Delhi production number.  Fun, affordable (at least on Zu), and easy to wear, these theatrical treats are the fast food equivalent of accessories.  (And no, that's not a slam, because deep down, who doesn't love Mickey D's?).  What's more, the product name of the cobalt blue and magenta bib necklace is Tracy, spelled the same way and everything.  No small feat in a world insistent on inserting that superfluous "e".

Finally, my Zulily shipment included a free sample of a Teddy Graham soft bake cookie.  The side of the box says "Meet Teddy," which is disturbing because you're supposed to eat Teddy.  But I guess there's no accounting for sensitivity in advertising.

Or, for that matter, in zoos.

Obviously it was really a strange show ... and I have to admit I neither like zoos. But for sure I love what you combined - as usual colourful and wonderful extraordinary! Have a very happy new week!

Soooo cute!!! Love those colors together, and that Betsey Johnson bag!! Oh my! <3 LOL, I remember "Reading Rainbow", I loved that show...I don't recall "Zoobilee Zoo" though! I've seen many ads for Zulily - I'll have to check it out. Gosh I love anything that even hints at Bollywood! Those Teddy Graham soft bake cookies look so good! The zoo photos came out lovely; I really enjoy seeing animals up close like that when I go to the zoo occasionally. :)
