Today’s sale PSA: a slew of classic Ray-Ban aviators (always my recommendation for someone looking for well priced, classic sunglasses), 25% off through Monday, the always chic J.Crew navy schoolboy blazer, now more than 50% off (under $100) with code “GOSHOP”, and a DVF little black dress, very Audrey Hepburn, now 25% off through Monday with code “FRNFAM“.
1. I receive a lot of emails asking for bag recommendations, and sometimes I feel like I’m always recommending the same favorite classics – the Knot! A Longchamp! A classic Kelly! I’m always happy to find new bags that I’m drawn to that are both attractive and functional, and I think this Anya Hindmarch bag fits the bill – a nice drawstring shape that isn’t too large or too small, and an adjustable strap that’s long enough to be both shoulder and crossbody. Plus the strap looks thick enough to actually be comfortable.
This particular version looks super similar to one of my favorite Hermes colors of all time – Etoupe – while the inside is lined with a very fun and complimentary shade of yellow!
The bag is $1200, which sadly these days is more than reasonable for a luxury bag. I think this one screams good taste, yet most people won’t be able to recognize the label, which is a luxury in itself!
2. Somehow during a random internet search this week I came across this great article from Racked – An Anonymous Luxury Department Store Staffer Tells All, and got sucked in. A fun read for anybody who shops at luxury department stores, and/or has ever worked in retail.
3. For anyone who works in an office (or anywhere with typical office politics), I enjoyed this read via the WSJ, from Stanley Bing about the “A to Zs” of business – which ones do you agree with?
4. I recently saw an old favorite book of mine, She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb, available for under $5 on Amazon, so thought it would be a good time to share!
This was one of my favorite reads when I was younger. I remember finding it in the book aisles at Costco while there with my parents, and staying up late that night trying to read as much as possible. It’s a great coming of age story with a very unique point of view. For anyone who enjoys stories with female protagonists, or just good story telling in general. Recommended!
