Video Shopping: Jessica Alba’s House, Part 2

by Jamie Sanford on June 11, 2019


I recently watched this Architectural Digest video where Jessica Alba takes you on a tour of her $10M Los Angeles home. Since it has been a while, I thought a video shopping post was in order. Unfortunately, Jessica Alba has a lot of items that must be sourced from some magical location where everything is one of a kind, because I had trouble with some of these! I have included items that have similar features or themes, or that would make a good option at a lower price point.





More to come in part 3!

DONE! Brook Lynn Hytes with one of the best runway presentations on Drag Race, EVER!

Chefs tell you how to doctor brownies up when you are using a boxed mix.

I am not a hoarder and can part with a ton of things without issue, but I do have the issue of “I bought this and haven’t used it as much as I would have liked, so I can’t toss or donate it” and blog posts like this one about identifying which kitchen items are actually getting used and getting rid of the rest are quite motivating.

The best Instagram accounts for vintage home stuff.

If you like makeup at all, you should watch RawBeautyKristi try out magnetic eyeliner and lashes because it is everything. You have to watch all the way to where she simulates wind with a blowdryer.

Watch Cardi B’s stylist travel to Paris to find Mugler looks for the Grammys, and then all of the other prep to get it all ready for Cardi to wear.

This closet is an IKEA hack for the ages! I’m obsessed with the color.

This creamy dijon chicken looks divine.

This Lifehacker instructional on how to go through the process of deleting your Facebook is one to save for the future. I haven’t removed myself from Facebook yet but it seems inevitable.

Universal Standard is a brand that I do like, but don’t LOVE. I appreciate their mission to dress all bodies in size 0-40, because that isn’t happening enough, but I do wish that there were more items available and that they had a bit more variety in style.

A further exploration of that is for another time. For now, I wanted to briefly explore the size dropdown menu on Universal Standard product pages.

Here is a typical product page. This time for these cute Sava jeans.

On the right are the typical buttons, for selecting your size and then to add the item to your cart.

Here’s where I get confused. How is this the choice that they have made regarding the size dropdown? With so many sizes available, why has no effort been made to abbreviate the effort to find a larger size? There is clearly plenty of space to create columns in order to avoid this.

I was especially surprised to see this clunky presentation of size choices when I saw this “quick shop” feature on a page with a number of products:

This DEFINITELY needs to be replicated on the individual product page. It’s much cleaner and more concise than the incredibly long, space-wasting dropdown that is currently on the website.

Let me know how you would improve this dropdown on Twitter or in the comments below.
