Meghan of Wit & Whimsy is on vacation and when she asked me if I would do a guest post, I jumped at the chance. I love the Wit & Whimsy blog! Here's my post "It's a Short Story" featuring lots of stylish shorts.
I love this video of Rebecca Minkoff narrating her new Prefall 2010 collection. She's one of my favorite bag designers now for her fresh and trendy bags that are very affordable too. I'm sorta obsessed with neutral tones these days so this video is very tempting!
Don't miss the Rebecca Minkoff online sale that starts on Thursday at 12pm EST. The online sales are great and that's where I nabbed my red Beloved bag that I love so much.
These new Prada B.Y.O. Bags ("Bring Your Own Bags") are available now exclusively at Prada boutiques for $295 each. These lightweight bags (in traditional Prada fabric) feature fun prints and are perfect to be your summer tote for everything you do! See more photos below and at Prada.com.
Crochet fashions are all on the racks now and here are a few items above that are inspiring me to pick up a crochet hook, rather than spend money. At the top of my list is the crochet Chanel bag with delicate crochet flowers that decorate the soft bag. I actually went into the Chanel store recently to touch it and loved the soft silky yarn that was used to make the bag. The price tag is scary though at $4525 (ah!), you're actually way better off crocheting your own version with your favorite flowers and colors. I'd say you'd probably only spend around $80 or so using really good silky yarn.
I'm so tired when the typical laptop sleeve brands give us ladies a "pink" version thinking that's what we need. Boring! Thanks to Coach, we can now get an injection of style with our technology with these fun Coach Poppy laptop sleeves ($78 each at Coach). Choose from Poppy Kaleidoscope (above) or Poppy Floral Graffiti (below).
