For all of you who follow celebs and handbags as much as we do, you’ve noticed that Gustto handbags are making their way to the forefront of many magazines. I feel like more times than not, I turn my head and I see a celeb carrying a Gustto handbag. I was lucky enough to meet with some of the Gustto staff a couple months ago back in San Diego and I can’t wait to continue to bring you great news about Gustto – I am sure you’ll be as happy as I am! Gearing up to that, check out the great Valentine’s Day answers Agathe, the Creative Director and President of Gustto had to share with us!
Being from France, are there different traditions when it comes to Valentine’s Day there than here? Valentine’s Day is, universally, about “l’amour” – spending time with the person you love. Traditions are the same in France, and with the French in America! One tradition my husband and I have is to wake up together and have breakfast in bed – we like croissants and fresh-squeezed orange juice, sometimes a mimosa! We also make that day our own; we turn off our Blackberries and just make the day about us.
Do you treat yourself to something special on Valentine’s Day? It’s always nice to indulge on Valentine’s Day! Sometimes my girlfriends and I will go out for lunch or spa treatments, anything that is relaxing and stress-free. I like wine or chocolate, too – even a little makes me feel spoiled.
What is the best way to be pampered on Valentine’s Day? Spa services are the best way. Getting a massage, a manicure or pedicure and a facial are all great ways to relax during the day and get ready for a fun, sexy date at night. Beauty treatments make you feel alluring and glamorous, the way a slinky cocktail dress, soft leather bag, or sky-high stilettos do. That’s the best way to feel for a romantic night out. Or in!
What are your plans for Valentine’s Day this year? Ask my husband! (Giggles.) Actually, since Valentine’s is on a weekend this year, we’re booking a hotel and spa package, complete with a couples’ massage, dinner, champagne and some rose petals on the bed. We’re both incredibly busy working and it will be great to enjoy that weekend together.
What is the best Gustto gift for Valentine’s Day, why? The gift of her dreams will be a bag that is gorgeous and classic, like Gustto’s Large Parina or Setela in fuchsia, from the Fabulous Classics Collection. Something timeless and beautiful is the best gift, because it’s a surprise that the woman receiving it will wear every day and be reminded of that amazing moment.
