A close girlfriend left for Paris on Wednesday, and I am off to St. Louis and then NYC early Friday. This means that I have been brainstorming our perfect weekend bag for our getaways. Net-a-Porter hits the nail on the head with their Embellished outfit on the left and their Long Weekend Wardrobe below. Coated black jeans, a chic day bag (I would take one in red or hunter green), and an embellished sweater would certainly take you from a lunch date at a sidewalk cafe, to sight-seeing, to dinner on the town. And that cool tweed dress, hat, and neutral flats? Can I have those?
I first stumbled upon Journelle’s smokey gray walls and sultry, Tocca-scented store in Union Square in 2008. This store is the perfect lingerie store for women in their mid-twenties who love the idea of La Perla but can’t quite bring themselves to pay hundreds of dollars for a bra and underwear set that only they might see. The selection is well-curated, the fitting rooms are luxurious, and the shop girls are always helpful. I love Victoria’s Secret as much as the next, but this brand screams special occasion and high fashion.
And that means the first presidential debate is tonight at 9pm ET. We’ll be watching at barackobama.com/debate, featuring a livestream, a live blog, and a few other live things, probably. See you there.
I’m sure the intern who thought of this campaign slogan is patting himself on the back right now. I suppose it doesn’t matter how you go about advertising so long as you are inclusive of the younger generations, right?
