Fishing Around on a Tuesday Afternoon

Seriously, I was NOT planning on doing another shopping post today as I had something creative planned (sit tight-it's coming tomorrow, I promise!), but I just received an email from Castaway Clothing and am so excited I had to pass it along. Go check it out. Does it look familiar? You're thinking Murray's Toggery Shop, right? Well, right family, but new store!

Andrew and Matt Bridier are the great-grandsons of Phillip Murray (the man we can all thank for those classic summer Nantucket Reds), and have decided to branch out and take the business in a new direction. I'm in love with the blue searsucker skirt with pink whales and I am picturing Mr. Monogram in a cute pair of embroidered shorts as well. If you get a minute, go check them out and see what they have to offer. Pass it along!

Until tomorrow, when I start bringing back the projects, Happy Tuesday!

I just got that e-mail too and was so excited to see this new line! Such cute stuff!

You are so always a good place for a giggle. That is why my friends and I stop by. I love that you took a shopping email and press release and then...voila. It morphs into some kind of personal selling point for you saying oh you're thinking Murrays Toggery. Lol. That was a store on Nantucket Island that you never saw or even heard of and your just passing on stuff. You should of gotten out of the damn house and gone into PR or the ad biz. You sure know how to spin everyone elses stuff as coming from your mind. Nantucket Reds. Lol. You never saw a Nantucket Red in your life or even knew what they were til you got that email sent to hundreds of people. You need to find an outlet for your creativity. I cannot wait to see what 'project' you have borrowed this time. Ciao.

"Andrea" (or whatever your real name is since your too too much of a wuss to actually EMAIL ME directly and keep attacking me in comments): Why do you come here, sweetie? Were you that poor lonely, picked on girl at school so now as an adult (if you even are one yet)you feel the need to be an internet bully to others and hide behind a fake name and not share your blog or email address? What is it exactly that you do that makes you such an expert on everything that you continue to come back and leave me rude comments?

Yes! I received the exact same email that loads of other people did and I'm happy to pass it along! When a respectful company branches out and asks me to pass along the news, I'm happy to help out. Just like I'm happy to pass along companies and sales of hardworking SAHM's. It's called being graciuos and helpful here in the South. I'm assuming though, you're not familiar with the kindness and polite manners we are all about in the South though, since you've shown nothing more than rude inappropriate, childish behavior. You might not THINK you're a troll, but you are the most pathetic type out there. You leave comments under a fake name with no link to email or website for other people to see what it is that you have to offer yourself that makes you think you are so much better than the rest of us.

Here's the thing. I don't give a rats ass if you like me or not. I don't care what your opinions are either, and I've repeatedly ignored and not even bothered to read all your other mean-spirited and un-called for comments and typically just hit delete when I see your name without even reading. But how exactly do you know that I know nothing of Murray's, exactly? I mean, you couldn't POSSIBLY know that my husband is FROM BOSTON and has family who LIVES ON NANTUCKET. But in your judgemental little eyes, I must not know about ANYTHING outside of the South. God forbid we actually wear Nantucket reds down here as well (which we do, btw).

As I said, I don't typically read your emails, or let alone respond to them b/c you are just a sad lonely girl looking for some attention so I really pity you. I have a great life and I'm sorry things haven't turned out so well for you. Perhaps if you weren't so cynical and rude you might have a better go at things.

P.S.Don't bother responding as I won't be reading or publishing any further comments from you.

Good luck!

Wasn't it cute, Mrs. P!

Burrus Boys said...

You go girl! And I'm proud of you for saying ass (even though I'm sure you thought for a second, "What would my mother think if she saw that?"). Even good Southern girls reach their boiling point sometime. Blessings from Birmingham, AL!!

Ashley said...

LMFAO!!! Are you kidding me?

Speaking of needing an outlet for your "creativity"....Get a freaking life.

What a Psycho. Who has the time?

Green doesn't suit you Andrea. That's what you get for being so damn charming Monogram Momma, jealous stalkers. I'm a little jealous that you have jealous stalkers....

Jodi said...

Hey Andrea
I know JUST the place for you.
The Babycenter boards love the likes of you - and are always up for a good fight....
It's super easy to find things to pick on there, too. You won't even have to be digging them out from your ass, which is what you did here....

Monogram Momma said...

Burrus: yes, of course, you KNOW I stopped to think about that for a minute! LOL!

Ashley: You know I'd hate for you to feel left out so I'm happy to share my internet stalker chick with you. I'd love to see her try to go toe-to-toe with you too b/c there's no way she could take you (since she's already shown she has no backbone by being afraid to link to her own website or email). Unfortunately this poor, poor girl is a regular nasty contributor over here but I am MORE than happy to share her with you if you are wanting some hate-mail! I assure you she's got plenty of hate to go around! Thanks for having my back!

Jodi: OMG you are SO right! HA! She is the perfect for the Babycenter boards!!! WOW- they would eat her for lunch, don't you think?

Tres Poshe Preppy said...

OMG! Crazy people in blogland! MM, Thanks so much for posting! I appreciate it and my BF will soon be seeing something from Castaway Clothing! MEAN PEOPLE SUCK!

Sarah M said...

You are to funny! I love it. By the way, I love the little cocktail skirts Castaway has. Thank you for sharing and please continue.

Future Mrs. S said...

Who knew that blogging could get so ugly?
I'm so happy that you share information with us. I, for one, didn't receive the email and was excited to see some new preppy products.
Keep up the great work!

Jennifer said...

MM--Even my southern mama would have cursed that loon out.

Keep up the informative and entertaining blog.

lady lulu said...

I placed an order the second I found this post....these were just what I needed to make up for the lack of critters on J Crew this summer...thanks for the info and keep on showing mean bloggers that us preppy Southern girls mean business!!!

ps...been wearing Nantucket Reds forever and been to Murrays too...

Monogram Momma said...

Lulu, the only thing missing that you need to purchase next are needlepoint critter shoes from "By Paige!" I love mine!

Monogram Momma said...

Jennifer: No, I don't think this girl has it all together (if you know what I mean), to continue to leave rude and demeaning comments on a blog she obviuosly doesn't like. I do know one thing's for sure... she's obviuosly never been to charm school, NOR does she have a single Southern bone in her body!
