Saks Sale!

November 6, 2008

Good things come to those who wait. I told you I was holding out for a good sale and now that the retailers are not doing so hot this quarter, they have a lot of good discounts. Helping the economy and getting good bargains in the process, what could be better? I pulled up a few things that I noticed that were full price yesterday, but as of this morning are a sweet deal. ;)

Salvatore Ferragamo Origami Single Frame Satchel

November 5, 2008

This bag was from last season, I loved it then and I love it now. It is lady-like, but has the frills without overdoing it. Classy, but different in a good way. I am surprised that they still have this bag available online, but who am I to question? Buy through Saks for $2,650.

Yves Saint Laurent Y-Mail Black Patent Coin Purse

November 5, 2008

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that can make you happy. Case and point: YSL Y-Mail Black Coin Purse. It’s just so adorable. Simple, classic, and an affordable piece of one of my favorite designer houses. I am drooling for a pair of their shoes, but this would help take the edge off. You can purchase through Yves Saint Laurent online for $175. Not too bad for something that is practical and pretty.

Blue Dog Art by George Rodrigue

A Happy Sunshine Day by George Rodrigue

George Rodrigue started a cult following the moment he first painted a Blue Dog on canvas. I’m not sure what exactly brought about the frenzy, but I love it. I don’t have $22,000 (starting price) to pay for an original, and the copies aren’t exactly cheap either, but I guess that’s just what it costs to have a piece of the blue dog. I did buy the 2008 planner to satisfy my urges, but will that be enough? You can purchase the above silk-screen through George Rodrigue’s website for $1,200.

Chanel Fall/Winter Lambskin Pumps

Chanel Lambskin Fall/Winter Pumps

Chanel Lambskin Fall/Winter Pumps

Ah, the classic, enduring Chanel. Coco Chanel’s brilliant perspective on women’s clothing and accessories took functionality and practicality and made it beautiful and luxurious. This focus went into her clothing, her bags, and her shoes. Even Chanel’s stilettos are amazingly comfortable and I can tell that these would be dreamy to wear as well. I am in total agreement with how Chanel changed women’s fashions, which is probably one of the reasons why Chanel still is as lust-worthy as ever, even 100 years later. Comfort and aesthestic do not always go hand in hand, but that is what makes these shoes Chanel. Inquire at your local boutique or call 800.550.0005. You can get more details here.

LAI North Star Tote in Blue Ostrich

October 30, 2008

I’m in the midst of packing for my vacation and I couldn’t resist checking out bags this morning. Multitask-er is a good description of me. Some people can call it ADD, but it’s more like a gift. But aren’t you glad I did! This gorgeous exotic blue tote must be mine! Mine Mine Mine! It comes in olive green too, but I’m all about the blues in my own wardrobe. Buy through Lux Couture for $2,300.

Sorry for my lack of posting frenzy…

October 29, 2008

I’m in the process of building a bigger and better website and it’s not as easy as I thought :) . So, while attemptingĀ  to create something beautiful for you (and me) and heading off on a long weekend vacation tomorrow, I have my hands full. But no worries, I’ll hopefully get my genius brother to help facilitate the move, because I feel completely clueless. I’m good at online shopping, but websites? uh…no. Bear with me please, I’ll make it worth the while.

Top Ten Women’s Wallets

October 28, 2008

I wrote about my favorite men’s wallets with very specific parameters in mind. I have the same needs for a woman’s wallet. I am talking about an everyday wallet. One that needs to be able to switch out with *most* of your handbags. Easy, classy, and functional. I know some women do not like the large continental shapes, but I love them. When they are not overstuffed, but fit all of your necessities, it looks very elegant when you are at the Walmart cashier buying your weeks worth of groceries. ;) Seriously though, women need to have something that makes them feel like a princess! So here are my solutions:
