JEWELMINT IS A GATEWAY DRUG

Rachel Bilson Shoemint Edith street style  

JEWELMINT IS A GATEWAY DRUG. 

Take THAT and put it on a t-shirt Mary-Kate.

I dabbled with my first pair of earrings, (they were Kate Bosworth’s ‘favorite’ after all!) and then I was hooked. $29.99 streaming directly out of my bank account every month and before you know it I’m spending ‘credits’ willy nilly. Is anyone else with me? Enter Stylemint. Endorsed by only my two all-time fashion icons MK&A. With their quirky Halloween costumes and their ‘plowling,’ there goes another monthly $29.99 slipping right out of my bank account unnoticed (that’s $59.98/month but who’s counting?). And now. Who else to tug at a fashionista’s heart strings but street style’s sweetheart herself, Rachel Bilson! Peddling her fashionable wares in the form my number one addiction in life: SHOES. But how did she know??
And just when I thought I could ween myself off the Jewelmint and the Stylemint, the price point jumps up to $79.99 (with 20% off the first pair, naturally). Mint Corp: you will be the end of me.
Now that I’ve accepted my fate, let’s move on to other important matters. Can I wear Shoemint’s Edith pumps for both day and night? I’m a smart shopper, I don’t jump into purchases without completing my homework.

See my research below.

Now my only problem is that I do not in fact own any of these clothes. I do have in my possession the American Apparel nail polish and that iphone case. And that’s it. But on a slightly less sarcastic note, I do believe in purchasing a beautiful piece even if only to display it in my house and to wear on special occasions. Think of these shoes as two small statues to adorn a bookshelf, Coveteur-style.
So, have I justified this purchase yet? Did I mention it’s 20% off the first pair?
Did I Actually just convince myself that I’m gonna wear 6-inch pumps in my day-to-day life?
Help. I think I have an addiction.

  1. Love it! Big fan of Rachel, and those shoes!! I also need to get me a pair of those black and gold pants asap. P.S. Love your blog 🙂

  2. First of all I LOVED this post it was hilarious. Second, I refused to sign up to these things because I knew I would get sucked in desperately and be losing money monthly lol. Third, I am in love with your blog!

  3. O lord I do that with shoes ALL THE TIME. I somehow justify an insane purchase and don’t ever wear them. They just sit like art (which they totally are).

  4. If it helps your wallet from hating you, you can opt to skip paying every month for however long you wish.. Just every time you get the email to your new showroom, click skip, and you won’t be charged. I bet you’ve a bunch of credit stacked up, if you haven’t chosen a piece every month 😉 If so, then choose away, since you’ve already paid it seems.

    Also, see if Seattle 76 will work for a 50% off code next time for JMint. But I was uber excited for MK-A’s T line, and equally so for Bilson’s shoe one!

    They really should quote that on a T….

    te amo,
