Lambertson Truex released their Resort collection earlier this month, which has caught many editors attention. Although the bags will not be in stores until October or early November, we had the pleasure of reviewing them now for all of you. Known for their meticulous attention to detail, clean lines, and overall simple yet elegant feel, Lambertson Truex has continued to forge their way in the handbag world. Their Resort 2008 line delivered precisely what it is they are known for, only further identifying with their goals and visions as designers. Our first bag to review from the Resort 2008 collection is the Lambertson Truex Gallo, which lures you in with its simple pairing of supple white leather and dove leather trim. The first thing that stands out about this bag are the colors used. (more…)
A few weeks ago, I received a somewhat unusual email from a guy who wanted me to review his bean bag.
Yeap, Andrew from SumoLounge.com was eager to get the word out, he was craving for reviews and he knew that his product was going to do well. Even at the Purse Blog. We do write about bags all day long, so it was going to make perfect sense to have us take a closer look at this enormous bean bag as well. Let’s take a look at the specs:
– Size: 5.5 x 4.5 feet
– Material: Ballistic nylon
– Filling: Millions of little Virgin Polystyrene Foam Balls
As you can see, the bag is quite large. To call it just a bean bag would really not do it justice. The Omni is absolutely brilliant, it goes way beyond the traditional bean bag that you used to have as a kid. The Omni is an engineering masterpiece. Laying on the ground, it appears like it’s a lifeless, shapeless form that couldn’t really provide any good seating support at all. Don’t be fooled, once you place it in a preferred position and sit down in it, the sturdy little foam balls realign around your body, molding you comfortably into a shell that hugs your body. When Megs sat beside me on the Omni, the shape still didn’t give in. You can easily change its placement and sit whichever way you feel most comfortable in – the Omni will make it happen.
The material is a very sturdy nylon that is still comfortable to the touch. You would think that nylon isn’t the best material for a seat, but the Omni does manage to stay very comfortable, even over longer seating periods. And thanks to this choice of exterior, your bag is probably going to last forever. For $150 (free shipping!), the Omni is a great piece of furniture that should not be missing in any household. It’s great to bum around in, watch your favorite TV shows, play video games, or hop on your lap top and browse your fav website (say, maybe, Purse Blog ;-)).
