But this feature, on New York Magazine's The Cut blog (which the Fug bloggers edit), absolutely tears it. In this case, they're sharing their shopping expertise in a little thing they call "Shop-a-Matic." Each installment of Shop-a-Matic gives you a whole bunch of variations on a theme--in this case, spring dresses--in all price ranges. It's fun to click through the slideshow (No. No. Never. Maybe. No. No. Too expensive. Wait, I think I just saw that at Target. Seriously? Ooooh!). But as I was clicking away, thinking to myself, those Fug Girls have the best job EVER, I realized, Hey. I don't need this so-called Shop-a-Matic! I AM Shop-a-Matic!
The people, I am hereby offering you my services as your own personal ShopRobot. All you need to do is tell me what you're looking for, and I will find you something awesome that expresses your personal gorgeousness. That's right, you heard me: tell me the kind of clothing you want and I will find it for you, and at a price you can afford.
Do you need
- Black linen cropped trousers?
- Spring-y floral floaty top?
- Tee shirt in a silky soft but not-too-sheer fabric?
- A clever bag in just the right size and shape?
- Sculptural shoes?
Like a robot, which as we all know is made by science, I will use my proprietary algorithms to locate these items of clothing for you, and more. And to think, all you have to do is ask.
