if i had a million dollars – $55,000 backpack

Amounts like “$55,000” and terms like “backpack” are rarely seen in the same sentence.   Thank goodness the Olsen sisters fixed that for us.  Their couture fashion label, “The Row” (didn’t want you to think their Wal-Mart label was behind the salary-esque bag) and artist Damien Hirst have combined forces to create 12 of these insanely priced unique backpacks:

This isn’t just a bag, it’s wearable art.  I mean, take away the circle or the pills that adorn it and it’s just a plain old $34,000 bag (I’ll admit, I do think the plain bag is pretty amazing):

What’s that Michelle?  Did you just do that math?

That means those pills and circles are worth about $21,000???   Well it is Damien Hirst.   Some say he’s the next Warhol, some say he’s crazy.   If you’ve got the cash, you can sport some of his madness on your back, the limited edition bags are up for grabs started 12/12 at JUST ONE EYE.  Sorry, no free shipping on a $55,000 bag.

bag sniffing dj’s

I don’t own a Louis Vuitton, but I love the way they smell.  We’re giving away designer bags on the radio station I run starting next week.  Shopping for the bags was amazing.  Having the bags delivered has been even more amazing.

So of course I have to ooh and ahh over it when it’s delivered because odds are good I won’t be dropping $800 on a bag anytime soon.   Oh yea, I also sniffed it:

Whatevs, it’s amazing, it smells like rich.

When my bag sniffing experience was over I was excited to discover a package on my desk.  I usually get cd’s, and more cd’s and sometimes rum, so a square box is kind of good find:

I’m all about food, especially lemon cake:

Then I noticed this little note on the package, duh, of course I want to know who sent me lemony deliciousness!

Even before he sent me snacks, Skywalker is one of my favorite dj’s ever.   So sweet.  Here’s to some fun deliveries to you this holiday season!

the hunt for the smirnoff sequin dress

I swear, every time I turn on the tv this commercial is running:

While the flavored vodka does sound amazing, what I’m really craving is the navy blue sequin top  dress that the actress, Roxanne McKee, is wearing in the commercial.

I need this topdress  Navy sequins, a longer fit, deep v, short sleeves (that look to be a little longer too) I’ve been searching for it for days!  It’s not a dress, too short for that, maybe a tunic?

Update!  It is a dress!  After tweeting Smirnoff they were kind enough to provide this info:

So it IS  a dress.  French Connection Samantha is what you need to be on the lookout for:

A few quick searches for the French Connection sequin Samantha dress came up with a bunch of different results

You could purchase Kris Jenner’s off Ebay:

You could get this gold version at Saks for $89 !!!

Or this green version from Bloomingdales for almost $300

If you google “French Connection Samantha” you’ll find tons of different versions.   Happy shopping!!!

Below you’ll find my attempts at finding the look before I knew what it was (thought it was a top)

______________________________________________________________________________________

I’ve searched everywhere and haven’t found the exact one yet, but each of these are close:

This DKNY top ($62.99 on Zappos) is slightly similar, comes in black and a royal blue.  I almost wish they could combine the black and royal blue to get closer to the navy but sadly this is interwebs shopping, not Photoshop, can’t adjust the hue.

This Tinley Road Peplum Top ($79 on Piperlime) is another that’s kinda sorta similar, but not spot on:

A black sequin deep v version ($52.99 at Macy’s)

This cowl neck sequin top seems to have the length and the fit of the shirt  I’m looking for, but not the color.  ($45.99 at Macy’s)

I thought for sure I’d find the top on Polyvore instead I found these bad boys.   Sequin jeans shorts?  Really?

In addition to the hot shorts, I did come across a few more amazing tops.   This Oleg Cassani Vintage top ($413.36 on Farfetch)

This navy Aquilano Rimondi sequin top ($555.08 on Farfetch)

I’ll keep searching, if you spot anything similar hit me with a link.

I discovered an Etsy shop at a craft fair.  Slightly backwards, right?    I was wandering through a sea of crocheted and sparkled items over the weekend when I spotted a table full of lotions, soaps and homemade body sprays and hot hooked.   For $6 I walked away with this amazing peppermint lotion:

I’ve been obsessed with it all week, the scent is just right (not overpowering at all) the texture of the lotion is perfection, I’ve been pushing it on my co-workers in my cube all week.   I’m so glad I found this shop, I’m definitely picking more up for the holidays.   Euphoria Soap is the name of the shop and there’s tons of goodies in there.   Hello , Fat Girls Delight Soap?  I would totally want to eat this in the shower!

Got a favorite etsy shop?  Would love to hear about it!   How did you discover them?
