Get out your Credit Cards, mysisterwifescloset.com is ONLINE
The Time: 9:00 AM
Hold on to your American Express Centurion Card (you know, that Black one), the Sister Wive's Online store is now, officially OPEN for BUSINESS!!
A quick look around is...well...a little depressing. And extremely funny in a Are you F***ing Kidding Me kind of way.
First, only the jewelry "department" was live, and it only had 9 different items for sale. Excuse me for a moment, I just can't stop laughing at how meager the online store offerings are...let's just say Neiman Marcus they are not. In fact, I've seen better selections at Target. Really...how long has this been in the works and only 9 items for sale?
The cheapest priced item is $55.00, for a truly hideous My Sisterwife's Closet Pendant. I wonder if the sister wives understand that the 'beauty' of their store logo is its rainbow-like coloring. It's completely loss in a black and white photo -- let's hope the actual item maintains the rainbow affect, because it looks like an animal paw in black and white. The most expensive item is a $299.00 Claddagh Charm Necklace and Charms personally designed by Robyn, presented by Robyn to her Sister Wives for Christmas 2011. Looking around, it seems a majority of the items were designed by Robyn.
Hmmm.... isn't that a surprise.
No the real surprise is that one item was actually designed by Christine - the Super Woman Pendant ($93.50). Words simply cannot describe....
Anyway, I have many pet peeves that I'll keep to myself, but... (yeah I couldn't resist) why are the photographs in stark black and white, and why the hell aren't the accessories and clothing sections open yet? Why the mystery about what credit cards are accepted? We buyers like to know on your front page what credit cards you take! By the way, it's the standard 4 -- Amex, Visa, Mastercard and Discover.
So let's put out some numbers. If 1000 of their diehard fans buy the $299.00 Claddagh Charm Necklace and Charms, assuming they will receive a $40.00 discount (that's what it said - buy the whole set and get a $40.00 discount), how much money will Robyn make, Christine. Christine? Did you hear the question? You must have because I see you taking your shoes off to count your toes...
Okay, $259,000.00. Why, that's enough to put a 40% down payment on one of the cul-de-sac McMansions!
