Marketing is a scary thing. Someone, or lots of someones, have figured out how to reach out and persuade me to spend half an hour looking at pictures of products that I do not have a need for, and will rarely buy. In fact, I know that there is scant chance of my purchasing anything before I even open any of these catalogs.
Is it just daydreaming about having fabulous stuff, looking fabulous, or constantly having a fabulous time, as I'm sure the models always are? I don't know. One thing I should point out is that I rarely see a product in these catalogs that I haven't seen before in an earlier one. Sometimes the prices come down, and sometimes they don't. Another thing I should point out is that I'm not famous for being picky about my stuff. I wear most of what's given me, for instance. So, why am I attracted to such posh glamour? Maybe I'm fascinated by the freakishly good-looking models and the beautiful pictures, or maybe the marketing wizards know something about me that I don't. It's a mystery.
Oh, and just when my interest in the usual catalogs starts to wane, here comes the shoe catalog! That's just great.
Fun to browse, but--see? Wasting time.
Note about the dog picture: that is not from Victoria's Secret, but it almost could be. They use a dog motif for their "Pink" line, and it's really cute. Dogs have animal magnetism.
