As Swizz Beats once said “You Fancy, Huh?” And I’m thinking he might have been talking to me.
Do you ever find yourself looking at fashion week street style photos and wondering what season they were taken in? Sometimes you’ll see sweaters in September (even though it’s 75 degrees…but fashion folks just love their Fall attire) or bare legs in Winter (because tights can easily ruin an outfit…unless they’re these). This season is no exception.
So let’s have a chat about the weather, but most importantly…how much does it affect the way you dress?
I think we’ve all experienced that “the one that got away feeling.” You finally fall in love, you find “the one” but there’s something about “that one” you feel you have to resist the temptation and just walk away. I’m obviously talking about shopping here. How many times have you seen something you just can’t live without but you look at the price tag and it’s too much or you realize your closet just can’t fit another thing in there? It happens. Sometimes we eventually get over it, sometimes we never do. But either way, we’re going to talk about the one that got away.
So I’ve had my eye on this website for a while (and by a while I mean since they launched in November, so really not that long) and it’s a pretty cool idea. Think Gilt meets online luxury consignment meets The Coveteur…oh and the New York Times is a fan. All good stuff, right?
Vaunte is the brainchild of Gilt’s former VP of Creative (and one of the original Gilt team members), Leah Park, and Gilt’s former VP of Marketing and Brand Relations, Christian Leone. And if you’ve ever read By Invitation Only, you know Gilt gets the best talent.
But enough about Gilt, and more about Vaunte.
