Waiting really does suck. If you are a True Blood fanatic like we are, then you have also been suffering from True Blood withdrawal. HBO realized the fashion world had an uncanny obsession with the vampire, werewolf, and fairy world so the company teamed up with Hammitt Los Angeles to create a line of bags geared toward the show and its fans.

There’s no reason to try and put lipstick on a pig, folks: Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was boring. Mind-numbingly so, at times. One of the most boring episodes in recent memory. Absolutely nothing of consequence happened except for Teresa trying to use her words and write a letter at the very end of the show.

Many of you might not realize that ShopBop continues to work on growing their Designer Boutique. If you did not know that before, you do now. I love everything about ShopBop, from their photos to their offerings to their customer service, and now I love their designer boutique.

See by Chloe Stamped Dotty Carmen Satchel, $495 via Neiman Marcus.

At first glance, the See by Chloe Stamped Dotty Carmen Satchel is a pretty nice choice. The leather is neutral and plentiful, the shape is classic and at less than $500, the price is right.

I am on end of the season sale overload right now. From Net-A-Porter to ShopBop, I am not sure where to start or how to whittle down my list of wants to a somewhat manageable number.

It is end of season sale time, which means some of the most amazing items that we all coveted at Net-A-Porter for months are now marked down. And the mark downs are very generous, making this sale one you do not want to miss.

I’ll be the first to admit that I appreciate a dose of absurdism in my life. I like weird movies and funny hats and people who wear bowties to daytime events without a note of irony. The weirdness that people bring to everyday life almost always makes me think that humanity might be ok after all, which is probably why the Les Petits Joueurs Mondrian Lego Suede Clutch makes me smile.

In the US, Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer and all the beachside fun that comes with the season.

Last week was a combination of many personal problems colliding and we missed out on featuring winners for our weekly Twitter competition. The good news is we are back in action and next week’s winners are going to get an amazing prize.
