September Birthday Gift Guide Sapphire Handbags

Dear fellow September babies,

I am so sorry. I forgot to put up your birthday gift guide the beginning of this month, and I feel even worse because September is my birthday month too. I celebrated my birthday on the 6th, and since New York Fashion Week started that day, I didn’t get to celebrate yet and I almost entirely forgot.

As you may have noticed, we didn’t do any posts about “Coachella style” around here. There are a few reasons for that: First, feathers + fringe + denim cutoffs does not = style. You only have to see so many pictures of Vanessa Hudgens in her day to day life before you realize that those sorts of looks don’t work when you’re not stoned in the middle of the desert, which means that I’m not going to try to force them on you, even if it is an easy post to write. Second, Coachella is an event that only a relative handful of people attend every year; isn’t having good summer style overall a much more worthy topic of conversation?

That’s why we’ve created our ode to the best summer bag option of all: the crossbody. Lightweight, completely hands-free and mostly small enough to carry off a bright color or a zany exotic print, you’ll be attached at the hip with the Best Crossbody Bags of Spring 2012 (almost literally) after all of the gossip chatter about celebrities at Coachella has long faded. Music festivals come and go, but a great bag is forever (or at least for a season for two). (more…)

Friends & Family sales are my favorite kind of sale ever. Instead of picking a group of merchandise from the site and giving it a uniform discount, the retailer hands the pricing gun over to its customers and lets us mark down things as we see fit. It’s the best opportunity to get exactly what you want at a discount, and since in-season pieces are included, it’s stuff you can start using immediately instead of putting it aside for when the weather changes.

For reasons that should be entirely obvious to anyone who shops online regularly, the ShopBop Friends & Family Sale is one of our very favorites. ShopBop stocks such an enormous array of pieces, though, that deciding what you want in a timely fashion (before everything good sells out!) can be a little daunting. That’s why we’ve done the work for you. If it’s accessories you’re looking for, we’ve already found the best of the best, all of which can be had for 20% off the listed prices via ShopBop with the code INTHEFAMILY20. (more…)
