How about wording when you look at an item on a store do you want the specific description without all the jibber jabber or do you like a little story about the item? How about specific words that catches your attention in a description?

Example #1

It is commonplace that all colors and styles fall into and out of favor. The ones featured by Lilly Pulitzer have proven this theory wrong. Their bright iconic palette remains chosen over many others year after year. Just a briny colored green, typical of an olive in a martini, can temper the odd pairing of bright pink and bright green. With this, they fall by the preppiness roadside.
A long hot sandy day at a summer beach, a bracingly refreshing outdoor shower, the puckishness of exuberant suntan therapy, are all antidotes to full beach days. They signal the end of time filled with the grittiness of dry and wet sand, tidal surf movement, stinky free floating seaweed sheets, abandoned shells, sea side feeding at a favored snack bar or ice cream truck. Eventually summer's multiple daytime opportunities need to have a natural curtain fall

Example 2
Sweetest little earrings of small matte dark aqua blue acrylic flowers (12mm wide) and aqua luster fire-polished faceted glass beads. The flowers are accented by vintage floral leaf bead caps and metallic bronze faceted glass beads. Just a petite 3/4” (2cm) in length from the bottom of the elongated antiqued copper kidney wire earring hooks, for a total length of about 2” (5cm).


  1. I can skip the jibber jabber. I like to find the size/material information easily. But I honestly don't mind the story if the information is separated...does that make sense?
