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!

Just a little bag to cart my headphones and makeup in. Lately I’ve been turning the studio into my makeup place. Oops.

Happy creating!

if i had a million dollars – jil sander’s paper bag

I’m sure by now you may have seen or heard about Jil Sander’s $290 brown paper bag.   Yes, I said $290:

It’s just a coated brown paper bag with holes in it.   The bag has sold out.   It’s a brown paper bag that’s the equivalent of a car payment.    If I had a million dollars I wouldn’t buy this bag, I would spend the money to try to understand why this exists.   Yes, fashion is art, and fashion is experimental, and fashion is the catalyst for so many great things, but this just seems unnecessary.

Glamorizing the simple is not new.    Femke de Vries created a leather plastic bag, that appeared to be just a plastic bag:


Cast of Vices did the same with their Corner Store leather bag:

I don’t know if a suede recreation of a brown paper bag would’ve made me less angry, but $290 for a brown paper bag just makes me want to scream.

Am I being irrational?   Am I just missing the point of this bag?

if i had a million dollars – louis vuitton jelly bag

Let me just clarify that this post should actually be: if I had a million dollars I could buy this (but  don’t want to.)

I discovered this jelly gem today today and it was too bizarre not to point out.  If you’re all up on the Louis Vuitton jelly bag from 4 seasons ago, apologies for late notice, but for real?

Let me preface my rant with a love for all things jelly.   In the 80’s, when I was 5, I was the jelly movement’s biggest supporter.   I guilted my parents into buying me every jelly bracelet

I had jelly sandals, AND jelly flats (thank you Caldor.)

I was a jelly believer.   Fast forward, ummm many years, and I was excited to read that jelly fashion was making a return this spring.  Who doesn’t love a jelly flat?   Who can’t love something jelly?

Enter this:

That is the Louis Vuitton jelly bag for the low, low price of $3,150.00.  It reminds me of the beach bags my mom used to pick up at Fay’s (when we weren’t at Caldor) but I’m pretty sure she was paying about .99 for them.    I’m no fashionista, I think I’m usually pretty on trend, I just don’t understand this bag, or the price.  It’s a LV jelly bag, with a LV sack inside.   For the cost of rent for a studio apartment on the UES.    I don’t know if I’d even pay $19.99 for this at Target.   How about you, are you obsessed with the Jelly Bag?
