Growing up in Florida I always yearned for the chance to experience all four seasons, especially fall and winter. Now that NYC is home, I live for cold weather because the crisp air means I get to indulge in sweaters and jackets.
Earlier this week, the PurseBlog Team along with over a third of our country was and continues to be affected by the devastating Superstorm Sandy. We fared extremely well and feel very lucky, but others are still struggling. We are working hard to get PurseBlog back to normal, but in the meanwhile we wanted to check on all of our readers.
Of course the focus of PurseBlog is handbags, but the lifestyle that goes along with loving designer handbags spreads into the entire luxury lifestyle. Handbags may be my first true love, but shoes, jewelery, and clothing are a close second. I spend hours scouring websites and always find myself lost in categories other than handbags and mentally putting together outfits.
It’s funny to think Victoria Beckham was once (ok still is) a Spice Girl and now has founded a very highly touted brand of clothing and accessories. Many other celebrities try to go the same route, and the majority don’t succeed; instead, they need to turn to large department stores to make mass produced items at an accessible price point.
Last week, I wrote about these really cool Must Have Boxes that our friends at PopSugar put together every month. It’s such a cool concept! Each month you know you will be getting a great box filled with all sorts of amazing items, but you don’t know what they are.
By now, I am sure some of you out there are familiar with the lifestyle site Joyus. It’s a fun, interactive, video-based site that lets viewers see items they may want to buy in motion. You know those times where you see an item online, even on a model, but aren’t exactly sure what it would look like on a moving, breathing human being like yourself?
No matter how many Maison Martin Margiela pieces I see or how much I know abou the history of the brand, the first thing that pops into my head when I see the brands work is, “What’s that jacket, Margiela?” It’s a lyric from “N***** in Paris,” which is a Kanye West song that you’ve probably already heard a million times (but listen to it again after the jump – it’s not a bad way to start a Monday morning).
From our team here at PurseBlog, we wish you and your families a wonderful and magical Christmas and hope you enjoy this time with your loved ones.
So what did Santa drop off his sleigh for you this year?
