Shop Proenza Schouler via Net-A-Porter

Today Vlad and I traveled down to South Florida for a much-needed vacation. We plan to spend this time flopping from the pool to the beach with drinks in our hands, but I couldn’t go to bed without sharing a sneak peek I received in my email today. Our friends at Net-A-Porter know how much we love Proenza Schouler bags and decided to give our readers an exclusive look at two new PS1 bags hitting their virtual store today.

From a gorgeous wine hued suede to a luxurious brushed python, I find myself yearning for each of these bags. (more…)

Shop the Coach Classic Collection at NET-A-PORTER.com

As the Coach brand expands rapidly, offering everything from the youthful Poppy line to the more refined Kristen collection, many fans of the brand still yearn for the Coach Classics. To many, a “classic Coach bag” might mean the small signature Demi Pouch, but the brand became known for their simple and refined leather Heritage collection in the 1970s, long before its logo fabric became a signature touch.

With the current 70s trend in full swing, NET-A-PORTER Buying Director Holli Rogers felt it was the perfect moment to bring back some of the original Coach designs and introduce them to a new generation of women. The five bags of the Coach Classics Collection will be exclusively carried at NET-A-PORTER.com and are sure to sell out quickly. Click for more on the Coach Classic Collection!

While the main purpose of our trip to NYC a couple of weeks ago was to find an apartment, Vlad and I knew we had to make a trip to Saks Fifth Avenue NYC to see the Botkier + PurseBlog Limited Edition Bag. Not only did we find the bag on display on the front table of floor five among the contemporary designers, but also is it featured in one of the window displays right off of 5th Avenue!

As far as high points in our blogging life go, this is one of the very top. I wanted to scream with excitement and tell everyone walking by the window that the bag on display was designed by the readers and members of our website. But I didn’t – I should have, right?!

The bag is still available for sale online but it is also for sale at the Saks 5th Avenue Flagship store in NYC. If you are in the area, you must check it out!

Thank you again to Botkier and Saks for the amazing partnership. And of course, thank you to all of you – who made this collaboration one of the most reader and brand involved processes I have ever been a part of or seen!

Oscar de la Renta continues to prove he is not only ahead of the curve but also completely able to relate to all of us who spend our days glued to gadgets.

Today we have the exclusive preview of the second batch of Oscar de la Renta iPad Clutches. The first iPad cases (which Oscar endearingly calls a clutch) were spotted on the runway of the Resort 2011 show. Just before that show, Oscar himself purchased an iPad which prompted him to create a fashionable clutch to cover his new omnipotent tablet. (more…)
