1. Do you all remember the classic Fendi Baguette? Were you all aware that it’s now back in various iterations…including the super adorable micro Baguette?
I love the “micro” bag trend, and this Fendi version is one of the best out there – adorable, tons of great colors and the price is right at just over $1K. My only issue is that this bad boy is indeed, micro. This would basically function solely as a smartphone holder for me, and only if I put it in the right way. But still it’s super cute. Any of you have one out there?
2. Did any of you participate in the earlier Lilly Pulitzer for Target madness? For some reason this completely flew past me…I kind of knew it was going no, but I’ve never been a huge Lilly purchaser (though I’ve admired a dress or two – I tend to like the plainer styles, like this white maxi). What do we all think of this article via The Washington Post – Lilly Pulitzer May Be Good For Retail, But Its Terrible Fashion?
3. I always like a good personal finance article and an inspiration to save, so here’s a good one I’d like to share, via The NY Times, about skimping on splurges….even when you have millions.
I really enjoyed Crazy Rich Asians, and if I could ever convince my husband to try out chick lit, I’d have him read it just for the cultural value. The best kinds of beach reads are those written by authors that are snarky, funny, don’t take themselves too seriously, but also smart – and Kevin Kwan in my opinion definitely qualifies. That being said, I did find China Rich Girlfriend a little lighter on the plot side (and to be honest, Crazy Rich Asians wasn’t exactly starting off with a particularly complete story anyway). There were tons and tons of brands mentioned this time around, which was overwhelming. But still a really fun read and recommended for anybody who enjoyed Kevin’s first work, a fun beach ride, or wanting to learn a little bit about modern day Asian culture (rich or not).
