Proenza Schouler Lizard PS11, $6825. PS1 Large Chain Wallet, $1925.

It’s that time of year again. We’re approaching the end of January, which means the beginning of February is nigh and Valentine’s Day is going to be here before we know it.

Proenza Schouler might be fairly new to the ad campaign game, but the company sure does know how to represent itself well. After all, this is Proenza Schouler we’re talking about here.

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.

Megs and I: Incurable Proenza Schouler fangirls, as you all know. We both have PS1s (mine newly acquired via Net-a-Porter’s sale!), I have one of the duo’s simple wallets from their first-ever e-commerce venture, and it seems like we talk on nearly a weekly basis about what Proenza bag we’re thinking about buying or hopelessly stalking or dying to see in person.

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.

As regular readers have probably noticed, Megs and I have different personal styles. I tend more toward black, she tends more toward brown. She usually chooses hippie-ish details, I prefer industrial finishes.

It’s been a rough week already and it’s only Tuesday. First Balenciaga, makers of my favorite handbags of all time, decided to desecrate one of their classic bags with inexplicably bad fur trim.

I’ve had Proenza Schouler on my list as the next bag to add to my collection for quite some time, but since I made that decision, I’ve spent months dithering over exactly which bag to get.

Last week I used “Argh” in place of “Are” in a post title and this week I am using “Orange” in place of “Aren’t”. My past English professors must be jumping for joy over my clever titles.

What if the case in question were the acid yellow Proenza Schouler iPad Case, which is easily the least iPad-case-looking designer iPad case I’ve seen since the advent of the product? How many more times do you think I can work the phrase “iPad case” into this post?
