A few weeks ago my boyfriend and I were doing laundry at his parents’ house when I overheard him talking to his mom about his Christmas present for me. Neither, it seemed, realized how easily noise traveled from the kitchen through the dining room to the living room. I could only pick up a few words, like “reservations.” At a separate time, I told him how my present for him was waiting at my parents’ house to be opened on Christmas morning and he replied that it would be really awkward for him to give his gift to me in front of my parents. On top of this, he started teasing me about my present coming in the mail and forwarding me FedEx emails just to taunt me.
Naturally, I started to think he had bought an engagement ring. And in addition to being in love, I felt like I was walking on air.
Then, a few days later, the FedEx package arrived. Keep reading »
Will the idea of private sales for automobiles actually take off? We were pretty stunned when Gilt announced they were offering three VW Jettas for the insanely awesome price of $5,995. Sure, kinda crazy to buy a car off the internet … on a whim … from a clothing website, but we sort of dig the idea. Now it turns out Gilt is offering up Vespas. Racked reports that there are two models which price at $5,520 (down from $7,236) and $3,740 (down from $4,736). Can you feel the wind in your hair already? [Racked] Keep reading »

Today’s big fashion news: Carine Roitfeld, super skinny French woman and editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, has just announced that she will be leaving her post after January. In the 10 years she’s held the position, Roitfeld has become a style icon in her own right, so, understandably, some are a bit shocked to see her stepping away from such a powerful position. Her reason for leaving? She says she wants to focus on personal projects and says that “it’s time to do something different.” We totally get that feeling. In an economy where people should be “thanking their lucky stars” if they have a job, we often forget about our own personal growth and desires. Obviously, Carine is in a professional and financial position that allows her the luxury to just walk away from a job, but the mentality is something to remember—everyone needs change in their lives and it’s OK to walk away from a good thing from time to time.
