Over the past few years, we’ve been witness to a shift in how Dolce & Gabbana conducts its accessories business. Slowly but surely, the emphasis has moved from mid-range crowd-pleasers like the leather Miss Sicily bag to small, precious, intricately adorned pieces that feel as much like art objects as they do bags.
Miscellaneous Bag Accessories
Y’all, I’m really hard to shop for. I have poor impulse control when I decide that I really must have something, and that leaves precious few gifts to buy at the end of the year. As if that wasn’t enough, my birthday is Christmas Eve, which only doubles the burden on anyone trying to buy anything for me, ever.
Just this weekend, I was sitting at home, going through some mail from earlier in the week and came across the Neiman Marcus Christmas Book. As I flipped through the pages, I couldn’t help but ask myself how certain designers are selected for a holiday book like this.
Sometimes I think that our bag obsession may go a little too far. For example, Megs and I are getting the kick out of Neiman Marcus’ 2 piece Shoe & Handbag Servers. Most definitely a pair of kitchen accessories that can’t be missing in a bag loving wife’s and purse hating husband’s home.
Many days I forget what we ladies must do to impress men. It is a vicious circle that takes hours of prep and in the hot and humid summer my attempts usually just fail. My hair is disheveled, I begin to sweat, my skirt sticks to my legs, my heels kill my feet, but I am sure trying to make an impression for my man and in general.
After a hectic but amazing trip to NYC, I am back and ready to talk about… pets! It seems that we all love our animals so much. Nitro, my beloved Lab, has been getting quite the spotlight on the main page of the site lately.
Roughly three weeks ago, when I left Megs in Columbus to what I like to call the lonely bitterness of a masters degree at the other end of the world, I had my layover in Charlotte, NC. For the past year and a half, since Megs and I started the whole long distance thing, I must have travelled through Charlotte a good 15 times.
Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. For some reason, Sunday feels about 182 times lazier than Saturday. It always has to me. It is more of a lazy unproductive day for me than any other. Typically I don’t get out of my PJ’s until about 2 pm (that is if I do ;-) ).
