Janie and Jack birthday sizing

May 29th, 2010 Posted in Boy's Clothing, Girl's Clothing Tags: , ,

Janie and Jack makes really cute birthday T-shirts for toddlers. The sizing is funny and very logical. If it’s “3″ on the front, the size available is 3T only. I want one but my girl is taller than she should be for her age. Why not do it in an unified 2T-4T size, so everyone can enjoy it? It should be ok, it’s a T-shirt for a toddler, not a custom-fitted red carpet dress.

Bag Borrow or Steal

May 27th, 2010 Posted in Accessories, Bags, Opulent! Tags: ,

Registered on Bag Borrow or Steal two weeks ago. Like the idea, but cannot unsubscribe now.

Idea seemed nice to me, to rent a nice couture bag for an even or some time. It turns out that it’s pretty expensive. Here are numbers. You can borrow a nice Chanel bag for about $170 per event, or about $1300 for three-month period. There are some freebies with that, for example, free $150 damage insurance and free return. Get real, to get a full use of your big bucks over three-month you’ll want to use the eye-candy often. Will it look like “used” after that? Probably yes. You’ll have to pay for cleaning and repair. I’d better get a nice savings account and put some money there. First, there will be interest in my favor, second, the bag will be mine at the end, and third, I won’t have to worry about cleaning and repair unless stains make my bag less loved.

The funniest thing I found was Coach Daphne Flower Cuff rental. It is beautiful, no doubts, and will cost you only $40 per month. Is it a good deal? It goes for $198 for you to have it forever in Coach on-line store. So it’s your choice now, have it for five month or forever. Anyways, I got the idea and wanted to opt-out. They tend to send me emails almost daily and it is my “real” email (it is stupid!).

To opt-out from the emails you have to enter your name, email and an optional note. You’ll get the following then “Unsubscribe requests take 7 to 10 days to process from the date of the request.”. There is also no option to delete your registration record. Ok, I’ll be happy to see more beautiful bags that won’t be mine for a reason. They also have not a bad rating on BBB, so if you really need an opulent bag for an event, you are super careful person and you don’t want the bag after the event, it’s a way to go. Otherwise, it’s not that reasonable money-wise.

ps. That Coach Daphne collection, isn’t it pretty? Here is the ring

Marc Jacobs shoulder bags

May 23rd, 2010 Posted in Bags Tags: ,

Just saw those Marc Jacobs shoulder bags in a store. They are perfect. Big enough to hold everything you need (excluding your notebook, but hey, aren’t you getting iPad along with Google Docs? :) ) plus a few copies of your favorite magazines. On the other hand, they don’t look too over sized. Classic Q’s pebbled leather is nice to touch and pretty thick; your day won’t be ruined if the thing will be scratched. Additional adjustable removable shoulder strap is just the right size for me (I’m a tall girl) and the logo plaque adds a playful hint. Classic Q petite version comes in black, steel, green and wave. Classic Q version comes in black, gray and dark green (at least what I saw). The difference with the new Q is the latter comes with canvas removable shoulder strap; it makes the bag more casual, the leather is thinner and the colors are brighter. My favorite is Classic Q non-petite in gray (the first one on the picture). Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
