    Off topic but this just popped up in my email and screams “stand and lean against the wall party in a top” (ok, “jacket”) to me…. https://emersonfry.com/collections/holiday-collection/products/sequin-jacket

    I just came up with a term that I felt the need to share with GOACA: shoppelganger. As in, you feel compelled to buy an item because you fear your shoppelganger will snatch it up if you hesitate. That mysterious person with vexingly marvelous, identical taste, your shoppelganger…

      Re: Workshopping Your Shoppelganger Concept. When on sites like ShopBop, as a pressure technique, they display from analytics how many views the item is getting. Could all of those people possibly be your “shoppelgangers”?

        More generalized shoppelgangers, I’d say: I am not wary of them because the pressure is less precise. The True Shoppelganger desperately wants that one weird thing you obsess on, the thing for which you thought you were the only one in the world wanting it. My shoppelganger frustrates and delights me, as I’m sure I do them. I want to snatch up what’s in my shoppelganger’s cart, but I also want to have lunch with them, during which we commend each other on our excellent taste. By the way, thank you for accepting my spelling of shoppelganger. I know, strictly, it should probably be shoppleganger, but I just like the way shoppelganger looks.

          Your spelling clarifies the relationship with the root word, so I think it is perfect. In college (I went to a huge uni), I was told (by many people) I had a doppelganger. I was always afraid that if I met her, I wouldn’t like her. And, I never did see her. Too bad we didn’t have mobile phones then.

    Maybe I’ve lived in NYC for too long, but I immediately knew (and was excited about) what the Hanukkah classic would be!

      The last movie I saw in the theatre was his “Uncut Gems.” It was surprisingly intense. I screamed (really, not hyperbole) in surprise at the end.
