Karl “Krazypants” Lagerfeld is at it again. He’s made a bike, which we covered, as well as other sporting equipment like skis. If Krazypants can find a way to put a Chanel logo on something that is already expensive and then charge more for it, he’s all over it. Particularly if it can be done in a wacky, eccentric way that makes everyone go “…waaaah?” And that’s the case with the all-new-for-spring Chanel Segway.

Folks, we’ve done it. I think. Maybe I’m being optimistic. But, with the advent of the Louis Vuitton Card Deck Set, I think it may be possible for someone with enough money and enough dedication to go through their entire day without deigning to use a product that’s not luxury branded. We’ve covered Chanel and Hermes bicycles, Gucci makes wallpaper, Fendi makes bedding, Versace makes furniture.
This bespoke chair from Suzan Fellman would be one of the greatest artistic pieces for your home. Vlad and I have a little more modern vibe going on in our house and I would plop this chair down to be the ultimate conversation piece. There are of course a few problems that I would run into. Price is the biggest one followed by keeping it clean.
I have another little secret to let you all in on… I am not a big makeup wearer. So now you know that I do not get manicures, pedicures, dye my hair, or wear make up much. What is wrong with me you ask, well that is just my style. Simple. Someday I may need makeup and more to give my face a nice look, but for now, I will keep my lack-of-makeup my typical look.
Oh my goodness! Remember when beanie babies were all the rage – and I mean ALL the rage? Well, I don’t actually remember the last time I saw one. So, you can imagine my surprise and astonishment to see these Prada Beanie Babies. Now, these beanie babies are actually key chains, so they are a bit smaller than your traditional beanie baby.
Have you guys missed me? Well, have you even noticed I haven’t been around as much? No? Ok, well, a girl can hope, right? But even so, the huge event for which we’ve been planning and preparing over at my day job is over, meaning that I have some time to do things other than go to work, eat, sleep, and worry!
Do you ever wonder what you would buy if money wasn’t an option? Personally, if I had more money than I knew what to do with I can think of plenty of things I would spend my money on: a couple houses, a new car, maybe a boat, lots of traveling, establishing a foundation in my name, and so on. Now, I am sure that small list looks pretty typical.
So, we don’t do a whole lot of chit-chat about beauty products here, and for good reason. This IS a purse blog, after all, despite my penchant for posting about sunglasses, shoes, luggage, Project Runway, soon Gossip Girl (12 days! *Head explodes*) and lots of other things that aren’t handbags. I don’t follow direction well. Chalk it up to my “artistic temperament.”
I generally try to play along, though, but I bought something a little while back that I think someone out there might really like, so I’m compelled to share, even if it’s not a bag.
I’ve got a dirty little secret: I can’t wear high heels. With a twice-dislocated knee (the last dislocation of which I’m still in a brace for) and a ten-times-dislocated (and once broken) ankle, I’m an orthopedist’s nightmare, even in sensible shoes. I can blow joints out by merely existing, let alone teetering around in glorified stilts. I’ve had joint injuries with a frequency and severity that most professional athletes never encounter.
I don’t know about the rest of you ladies, but I sure do love a compliment. Maybe it’s a tad narcissistic of me, but I just love being told how awesome I am by others. People I know, complete strangers, it doesn’t matter. Compliments will, in fact, get you everywhere with me. I’m easy that way.
So imagine my delight when my trip to the mall today become a veritable compliment fest, all because of the Discus Necklace I wrote about a few weeks back.
