Let’s think for a moment about who exactly might be the target consumer for the Roberto Cavalli Gold-Plated USB Stick Pendant. A fashion editor? No, I don’t think she’d want to wear the same necklace to work every day. A graphic designer? No, USB stick drives are probably exchanged and tossed around so much in that profession that having one that’s also an expensive designer necklace is probably counterproductive.

Smythson continues to be an amazing brand to look to for travel accessories and everyday handbags alike. We have already shared our love of Smythson travel accessories and now we will bring you more of our favorite accessories from a brand we cover far too little.
As luxury shoppers, we grapple regularly with decisions of how much we’re willing to pay and what we’re willing to pay for. $2000 for a leather bag? Maybe. $2000 for python? Seems more reasonable. $2000 for canvas? Not unless it’s Louis Vuitton and you’re already a huge fan of the brand.
But everyone’s shopping agenda is clearly relative to their income and lifestyle, and being comfortable and happy with one’s own purchases should be the chief goal.
Many of you may be in the mindset that Labor Day brings summer to a close. Not so fast.
Indian summers can last into October or even November.
Although vacations have come and gone and it is time for back-to-school, I’m going to continue enjoying my endless summer. All you need to get in the mindset is the perfect beach attire.
The charming staff at the Sloane Street store made the experience delightful. I am completely obsessed with the extraordinary jewelry boxes (cerise pink!) and especially love the blue gift boxes. Smythson is the British brand typically known for its pocket notebooks embossed with cheeky titles like ‘Yummy Mummy’, ‘Wedding Belle’, ‘Inspirations and Ideas’, ‘Happiness is Shopping’, ‘My London’, and most recently, ‘Recessionista’.
It’s always great to see a big brand give back, and Jimmy Choo is putting their money where their mouth is with a new limited edition collection in partnership with the Elton John AIDS Foundation. The line, named Project PEP, will send 25% of its proceeds to help fund South Africa’s Simelela Rape Center. The center is often instrumental in administering patients the preventative medicine that lessens the likelihood that a victim will contract HIV from her attacker, as well as providing psychological services after the fact.
This right here, folks, is why they hate us. And when I say “they,” I’m not talking about terrorists. I’m talking about everyone. Because there are few things more imminently hateable than a $450 beach towel. The Louis Vuitton Ipanema Beach Towel, to be specific.
And I totally get that’s it’s all in good fun and totally hilarious and kitschy, but seriously, a beach towel?
Most handbag lovers are also shoe lovers. So this post will fit in nicely, amongst all the designer handbag chatter. Jimmy Choo shoes are positively known across the globe and their latest collaboration with Hunter is going to have the shoe world’s attention. Hunter, an iconic British brand, was established in 1856 and their Wellington boots are known for performance, durability and comfort.
It is not that I am a superfluous spender, though at times I may be. The fact of the matter is I have always had an affinity toward miniatures. Truly, not sure why, but it is a fact. So the Minaudiere’s from Judith Leiber have always been a favorite of mine. I pop on her website or into the department store to see what itsy-bitsy pillbox will show next.
