Hello, hello! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was uneventful, but good!
So, lately I've been annoyed with Twitter and all the online social drama, it's not enough to keep me away from it, but because of these feelings, I was so relieved to have something GOOD happen as a direct result of Twitter. My faith in the blogging and online world is always restored at the most unexpected of moments.
You know the new Jason Wu line of clothing at Target? Fellow blogger and Twitter addict, Tara from Fabulous but Evil was desperate to find the cat tee. You know, the one from the commercial? So cute, right? Well, she couldn't find it anywhere in Houston, so she took to Twitter and sent out one final plea that got me...
All weekend I noticed her tweets where she was lamenting on how she couldn't find this t-shirt, and I think the fact that she couldn't find it just made her want it MORE. We all know how that feels!! Simple econ, right? Supply and demand...
So, Sunday night when she tweeted the link to the shirt, I clicked it, put in my zip code - the entire time thinking I'm not going to find it, but I'm going to feel guilty if I don't even looooook!
Well, what do you know, her exact size was in limited stock at the Target just down the street from me. It's a little Target, no grocery, and it's been there years and years so I was shocked they had it!
I tweeted her back and said it was there and I would go and pick it up in the morning! Don't you just loooove making someone else happy? I do!
Anyway, it really got me thinking about the power of Twitter and these other social networking sites. Sure, they're entertaining, but they also provide a HUGE audience from across the world to spread what you're passionate about, to learn from or.... to fulfill some fashion dreams. The sky's the limit!
Tara, your shirt will be in the mail soon. I'm so glad you finally get it! :)
What have you wanted so bad, but you just couldn't get your hands on? What was it? Did your wish ever get fulfilled?
