Most of us don’t balk when designers use lizard skin (after all, lizards aren’t cuddly), but this is the first time I have seen a designer list the skin specifically as iguana. Growing up in Florida meant being surrounded by iguanas often.

Usually when we hear about something as awesome as a chance to collaborate with Proenza Schouler on your very own, custom Proenza Schouler PS1, we’re not lucky enough to ever see the results. That’s what I assumed would happen when I heard about this charity auction a few months ago, but luckily for us, a style blogger won the auction and now we have lots of photos of the finished product.
It is no secret that both Amanda and I are extreme Proenza Schouler fan-girls. Every time Jack and Lazaro grace us with a new version of the PS1, we swoon. Sometimes a little bit of pizzazz mixed with a lot of classic is just what I crave, and these two bags from Proenza Schouler’s Holiday collection are calling my name.

Nothing makes me happier than stalking my next purchase. With most things in life, I’m an impulse-buyer, but when it comes to handbags, I like to take it slow. Let the romance develop. Whisper sweet nothing to my new bag over candlelight before I make it mine.
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.
I just checked the calendar and realized we are midway through summer. How exactly did that happen? One minute I remember dreaming of warm weather with you and now I am stuck in heavy heat and humidity. While countless New Yorkers plan weekends in the Hamptons, I am excited for a trip down to Florida and the Caribbean next week.
Charity for charity’s sake is always rewarding, but charity that rewards you with a Proenza Schouler PS1 Satchel made to your exact specifications is even better. Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez, the creative duo behind Proenza Schouler, have stepped up to the plate to auction off the chance for one lucky bidder to design a PS1 all her own.
