Cage Kitten ABS

Merry Christmas to me

The latest Frederick's of Hollywood catalog just arrived and I feel like I really do need this bra. Ooooooh...sparkly!





The matching shorts I might be able to do without.




I hesitate to order it though because the bra doesn't come in my small size (although they do sell it in a B cup and I've made a B cup bra work before with a little creativity). I'm also concerned that while the picture looks like the bra is covered in red sequins, it may in fact just be red embroidery with with only a handful of sequins.

I've decided that if I order the bra, I also need this corset. The catalog says it is beaded and sequined, but I can't see them in this picture:




I think that worn over a black dress, it would be stunning attire for a company Christmas party. Ummm...if my little company had a Christmas party. Remind me to have a Christmas party next year for Pole for the Soul.

1shoppingcart

I just closed my account with 1shoppingcart. I just want to say for the record that even though I'm furious at them, I was polite and nice to the customer service folks I spoke with. I know they just work there, and it's totally not their fault that they work for a company that doesn't deliver what they promise to their customers and has faulty software. I politely closed my account and got a refund.

Among the two huge errors they made, they oversold one of my classes. I don't actually need a shopping cart system to sell places in my class by credit card online. PayPal accepts credit cards for me from people who don't have PayPal accounts. The only thing I needed 1shoppingcart to do was limit the inventory number. PayPal would simply sell places in my class to anyone who wanted them, even after they sold out. 1shoppingcart allowed me to limit the inventory so that I only sell 6 spaces in each class. So you can imagine my horror when 7 girls walked into my class Monday night claiming they were all registered. When I went online, I discovered that not one but TWO errors in their software had occurred. One which processed an extra order, and another which actually told me only 6 spots were sold even though they accepted payments from 7 people.

Anyway, we're making it work with 7 people. And the other error they made (which I won't go into), while it cost me quite a bit of money, won't kill me or the business. What I'm really bummed about is that I have to shop for a whole new shopping cart system online. More research, phone calls, figuring all new software, etc. I'm very disappointed.
