The Row Cat Eye Sunglasses

I spent last week on vacation in the Hamptons and enjoyed some much needed R&R. The Hamptons may have some parties happening, but for the most part, a getaway to the tip of Long Island means tons of down time. Vlad and I laid by the pool, read, ate, and slept.

What’s Krazy Unkle Karl up to this week, you ask? Oh, you know, the usual. Powdering his hair, dressing like a goth French cowboy, designin $37,500 collars that are so high they resemble bondage gear. Wait, what was that last part?

For part of Memorial Day weekend, Vlad and I hopped over to the Hamptons to kick off summer. We didn’t have the best weather, most definitely not sunbathing weather, so instead we walked the beach and picked out future fantasy homes that we want to buy.

Dolce Gabbana Animalier Bicycle

The premier designers of the accessory world have decided that all who love bags should also love a chic bicycle. From the Hermes bicycle to the Chanel bicycle to the Gucci bicycle, some of the best known brands have taken a chance on two-wheelers.

From time to time, we like to take a look at some of the lesser-known products that the world’s biggest brands stock on their websites. From pencils to flasks to wine accouterments, Hermes has always excelled at these nifty little pieces, and the brand certainly has a following that’s dedicated enough to snap up whatever it is it manufactures in order to round out their collections.

I’m often first in line to make gentle fun of things like $700 Hermes wine-raters, but what the company does with some of its products is truly inspirational to those of us who love accessories and the craft that goes into making them.

It’s rare that a designer with as big of a name and as much of a reputation for trend-setting as Proenza Schouler makes anything that is both functional and reasonably affordable, which is why Megs and I have been fans of the Proenza Schouler PS1 Wallet since the very beginning.

I have a serious jewelry problem. All of my favorite stuff is either vintage or costume, so it’s not a spending problem so much as it’s an amount problem. The stuff I wear regularly currently resides in small Ziplock bags inside a white Balenciaga box (which used to contain my iPad case), which sits on top of my dresser.

Every now and then, I like to dig through the Hermes website to find stuff I’ve never noticed before. The site has seemingly endless categories, some of which shuffle their contents quite regularly, and most of them hold something that’s bizarre in one way or another, whether it’s brand new or has been available for years.

PurseBlog may be a site about designer handbags, but more importantly it is about the woman who loves designer handbags. She lives a certain lifestyle, she loves her jewelry, sunglasses, wallet, and clothing. She may style her outfit around her bag, but she is very aware of everything she is wearing.
