Never has a stuffed animal been so chic. I’m smitten.

If the mood strikes, you can purchse this dapper beast for $1,500 from Nieman Marcus starting in September.

A pile of apologies

Salut Darlings,

I’m very very sorry for not posting in…has it really been almost a month? Really? Shame.

I’ve been up to my ears in life–between interning, working, and pulling things together for the radio station. But thank you to everyone who has been so kind as to remember this small section of the Charleston blogosphere.

Here’s what been happening:

– I’ll be finishing up a public relations internship with Rawle Murdy Associates in downtown Charleston this week.  What an experience that has been! If any of you in the blogosphere are thinking about doing an internship, drop  a line and I can tell you all about it. I highly recommend it–and not just because it’s a nice break from my usual fashion attire.

– I’m doing some marketing for this fabulous little restaurant downtown now. If you haven’t done so already scamper over to Ashley Avenue and pop in Blend. I get so tired of the usual Charleston restaurant scene, and Blend is a nice sactuary from it all! Gourmet deli downstairs, fine dining upstairs, and music and light fare each night in the courtyard. And brunch…did I mention the brunch? Crabcake benedict…I might be partial…but I’m sold. Check it out here.

– Things are starting to move into full swing at CofCRadio. We’ve got two events in the works, including a party at the Music Farm on August 30, and a couple of other things as we move onto the FM. Bravo!

I do solemly swear to write more. But for now, thanks to everyone for sticking around

Love to all, and don’t forget to dress you best.

When Bad Things Happen To Bags

I am not at all a fan of Louis Vuitton, so perhaps my opinion on all this is a bit tainted.

That disclaimer out of the way, Louis’ collaboration with Comme des Garcons is what happens when designer handbags are genetically altered in a petri dish…they grow strange handle appendages.

I find the plume of handles on the signature bag not only aethetically displeasing, but a pain in the well-dressed ass. Imagine trying to toss this bad-boy on your shoulder, only to be poked by the television antena handles.

The bag does lend itself to a certain avant-garde, haute couture vibe…but I’m just not feeling it.

Perhaps it’s my disdain for the signature LV logo emblazoned across so many of their leather goods, or perhaps its the afore mentioned mutant handles. Either way, I will not be lining up in Tokyo Sept. 4 when the bag goes on sale.

Happy Birthday To Me!

And now, a moment of shameless self celebration.

It’s my birthday! I demand that everyone celebrate.

That’s an order.

Like Coke for the Fashion Addict

Filed under: Just Silly — carolime @ 7:54 pm

I was recently invited to LookBook.nu a collection of people who post outfits and recieve feedback from others.

Absolutely the most addicting website since MySpace four years ago. I’m hooked.

Spend five minutes or over an hour (not that I’ve done that…) weaving through different ensembles from people across the world. It’s a growing community of the style savvy, and a magnificent means of gaining fashion inspiration.

Definitely worth checking out.
