One evening last summer, I was at The Odeon on West Broadway for my friend Robin‘s Birthday dinner, when I spotted this lovely Pink Handgbag and matching Cosmo, sitting on the bar. And now, it is immortalized on this blog!
I was at the Architectural Digest Design Show a few weeks ago, cutting through one booth on the way to another booth, when I noticed that someone had left this totally sick Fuchsia Pink Crocodile Hermes Bag totally unattended — which is insane, because regardless of what’s inside it, this bag alone is worth as much as a car. But what caught my attention even more than the bag’s awesome pinkness, was this hilarious caricature of designer-god Karl Lagerfeld, rendered in vinyl and rabbit fur, and hanging from the purse’s strap on a key ring.
Oh Karl, how cute are you?
Splash Out Melly is the official name of this smart clutch bag designed by Kate Spade. Made of Hologram PVC and engraved with the Kate Spade New York signature, this fierce clutch has a frame closure (14-karat light gold-plated hardware) with Shark Fin bauble and optional chain shoulder strap that folds inside the bag. Features one interior slide pocket with detail that reads: “Beware of Sharks.” We love it.
Price: $278.00. What a bargain.

K8 Hardy’s work typically subverts common conceptions of fashion and consumerism, combining product close-ups, meticulous styling and staging. Her photographs and sculptures employee layering to confuse and undermine assumptions about class, economics, race and gender. She “teases out” the emotional meanings in everything – from clothes to figures in a landscape. “This blanket expression that you shouldn’t judge a person by their clothes is ridiculous to me,” she said. “Every article of clothing is so loaded with signifiers, I don’t know how you can help but make up stories about people and their desires based on what they wear.”
Holiday gift shopping was so much easier (and way more fun) when I was much younger and most of my friends could be counted on to like the same things I liked. Now, I don’t know what anybody wants or needs. And while it usually covers all of your bases, nothing says “I Put No Thought Into This” quite like giving a gift card. You might as well just give the person cash. Sure there are exceptions, like if the card is from a very niche store they like, but regardless, you will get a much better reaction if you manage to find out the want one of those new LED shower heads and you give it to them when they least expect it.
