I’m one of those (annoyingly) festive holiday people who loves decorating, still wants to sit on Santa’s lap, sings every holiday song I know and dreams of a white Christmas each year. I’ve been humming a variety of holiday tunes in the office recently, and I’m waiting for someone on the team to give me a swift kick in the rear; even I know it can be rather irksome.
It’s been one crazy year thus far, but we have so much to be thankful for. Vlad and I are thankful for our family, friends, health, and great blessings. And on top of that, we are thankful for our work; from our amazing team we have the pleasure of calling our coworkers to our fabulous forum members and readers.
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?
