Pack Your Bags!

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Put a little something just for you on your registry, like one of these cute bags.

The first three pieces are by Orla Kiely. Her pieces – made of canvas and covered in vinyl – are incredibly durable. The upright green and white wheelie is from Orla Kiely’s website. The next piece – the multistem cosmetic bag – is from OHBaby! The upright Crayon Crocus Wheelie is from Anthro (they have lots of cute luggage right now).

I love the black and white floral Fashionaire luggage from Samsonite. It’s a vintage Samsonite pattern that the company re-released for a limited time. The entire set is cute. You can find it at Flight 001 or Bloomingdales.

The turquoise cosmetic bags and travel cases are made by Stephanie Johnson, who makes some of the cutest bags in all sorts of interesting patterns.

Happy Honeymoon!


Monday, March 3rd, 2008

Susan, who’s getting married in May, asked me to round up some cute wedding lingerie. I hope you all see some things you like here!

The first pair on the top row is by Eberjey; it’s all business in the front and a party in the back. The style name is India Boy Thong. Next is the Aubade Thong from Fig Leaves (go check out the very cute blue bow in the back). The third white lace pair -the Elle McPherson boy short – is from Fig Leaves. And, I adore the next pair – the Chantelle Hipster from Nordstrom.

The Eberjey Baby Doll Dress from Shop Bop starts the second row. It’s followed by the Hanky Panky Jersey Chemise, also from Shop Bop. Next is the Bel Niente Gemma Babydoll from Nordstrom. And, finally, something blue – the Felina Julianna Thong from Nordstrom.

Here are a few other places to find cute things for your wedding night and honeymoon:
Fig Leaves
Agent Provocateur
Kiki De Montparnasse
Shop Bop
Bare Necessities
