The One That Got Away

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.

On My Mind: London Fashion (Part 2)

Right before I left for London, I shared with you some of my favorite British fashion designers but because there were too many to fit into one post, a part 2 was definitely in order. So now that I’m back in the states, I’m just going to continue to gush over how much I love the fashion in London and also how fantastic it is that the city supports their ever-growing fashion scene (Chicago, take note).

Back[pack] To School

Shoulder bags, satchels, totes…most handbags have one thing in common — hands. With all the things we have to carry around these days (iPhone in one hand, Starbucks in another, perhaps a few September issues under your arm), hands are a hot commodity and we need them for important things. Like composing the perfect Instagram caption, pointing at that new restaurant I’ve been dying to try, and checking what’s new on the Net-a-Porter app just to name a few.

Even cross body bags can get in the way sometimes and they are one of the most common ways go about carrying your things hands free …unless you decide to go really old school and opt for a fanny pack (which I’m not totally opposed to). But today’s topic of discussion is about that other pack — the backpack.
