Neither my tub nor my bathroom sink has drained within an hour of their use since, I think, November. The tub sludge I’ve apathetically tolerated as a black, slimy, possibly sentient roommate suddenly became unbearable yesterday and I ran downstairs to tell my property manager I needed a plumber IMMEDIATELY. I’m going to have them take a look at the place where the floorboards are rotting out from the radiator leak in my bedroom, too. And the windows, they’re fixing the windows. And I need a new shower curtain and toothbrush. And sponges, piles and piles of crisp new sponges. And is anything so attractive as a small army of newly purchased bottles and canisters of untouched cleaning products, lined up on the countertop like proud little soldiers ready to spring into battle? (I really love Mrs. Meyers products in Lemon Verbena. They’re all natural, smell amazing, and the packaging is very cute.) That’s right. Spring. Cleaning. St. Patrick’s Day is in a week and just four short days after that is SPRING!!!!!! I generally really hate to clean or do any kind of housework, but boy do I love Spring Cleaning. Put on your ashes, shake off the dust (a little, uhhhh, Catholic humor…) and clean out your closets! That polyester hoodie sweater you got from Forever21 for $12 that seemed like a really good deal and is now so covered in pills you broke your boyfriend’s electric razor trying to shave it? Not so cute anymore. It’s not a sweater, it’s a scab. Pick it off and fling it away. Out with the old. Out!
That’s just what we’re doing today at Modern Love. All the Fall and Winter styles you’ve been ogling since we opened in October are WICKED on sale. Karen spent the morning ruthlessly grabbing piles of buttery leather shoes and hacking and slashing their pricetags. We are tired of looking at them, but you’re not. Scoop up these babies and ride their buttery leather asses into April and beyond. Up to 70% off, and these pictures represent a very small fraction of all the stuff that’s on sale.
