While Kathy saying that I look like Miss Marc gave me a chuckle, Amber and I immediately had a favorite.
Not only did Amber and I crack up about your albino alligator story, MISS SARA ZUCKER, but we also thought that this bag would be a great buy. (Um, they a leopard print one now too that makes me wish I could have won the $100 gift card!)
Thanks so much to ShopBop and Marc Jacobs Handbags for sponsoring the giveaway. I will be seeing you both very soon, I'm sure...drools... leopard.
Oh, and of course, congratulations Sara! More info to come via email!!

Holla at ya girl. Who has your back? Or, um, is holding your stuff? Maybe you'd prefer to carry your stuff in a nice Marc Jacobs handbag? Hmmm??! Today, we're (Amber is voting in on this one) giving out a $100 Shopbop.com instant gift card to one lucky, creative commenter who tells us which of the Marc Jacobs handbags from Shopbop.com is his/her favorite, and why. The most inventive comment wins, so be sure to let your one-of-a-kind style shine. Even tell us where you would wear your handbag, and what you would wear it with.
History of Mark Jacobs Handbags
Marc Jacobs, the renowned designer, has received many honors in the competitive fashion world, such as "The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent," in 1987, making him the youngest designer ever to receive the distinction.
His designs are always unique, daring and inspirational. His creative vision currently ranges from menswear to, of course, handbags. Marc Jacobs handbags are unique works of art, both stylish yet functional, ranging from the evening clutch to oversized tote bags. Even his more classic designs are distinguished for their outstanding craftsmanship and well-crafted materials. PLUS, he's freaking hot. Did you see him in the Nars anniversary pic? Gah, I die.
They are the kind of bags that you want to rub your face on a little bit. You've certainly seen enough of them on here to know that I love them a little bit and do silly things like blow my entire income tax refund even though I ought to save that money on them. I've been carrying the Hillier Hobo for-ever, so when ShopBop gave me the chance to offer this to you, you know I was down.
What would you wear with your pick from Marc Jacobs handbags?
From traditional black to vibrant, colorful designs, there are Marc Jacobs handbags suited for any style and occasion. But what really matters is which of these handbags you prefer; with so many choices, it's a tough decision. If you win this giveaway, you'll receive a $100 Shopbop.com instant gift card so you can get started on shopping for your new piece of art immediately. Just tell us which of the Marc Jacobs handbags you absolutely can't live without, and why. The most creative comment will win, so be daring like Marc Jacobs himself and show off your style!
I'm so excited for someone to win this. While not as dope as a free handbag, a $100 instant gift card makes these bags an investment worth making (bull, bear, economy, money market, blah).

Sorry for the lack of pics. I blame this PC. Yeah, you heard me.

Ok, I actually am very happy with the size of my feet, but here are another pair of boots that I didn't buy today at Second Time Around in Needham. Apparently Needham is the place to go for consignment shops!
I saw these at the Closet Exchange in Needham today but they weren't. in. my. size.
(Frye Jane Stitch in Redwood, retail price $298)
EDIT: Interesting search results?
I'm not really sure why Zappos is $4 more.

I'd like a new pair of flats for fall. And a pair of boots. And a pair of heels. And a pair of high top sneakers. Hmm, maybe this is an addiction like my mom says and I should just get off the internet.

I love seeing models I recognize from somewhere (S'up Allie)--even more so when it's someone I admire. Needless to say I was elated when I saw this post featuring Sunshine & Shadow's lookbook on Refinery 29 featuring Laurel!

I get about 20 emails a day just from stores. I know I should hit unsubscribe, but I'm afraid I'll miss a BIG SALE or something...something like this.
From a Shop Intuition email trying to sell headbands.
Monday, September 21, 2009
Here are Week 1 stats:
Winner 1: L.A.M.B, 55% (Alexander Wang, 45%)
Winner 2: BCBG, 64% (Black Halo, 36%)
Winner 3: Rag & Bone, 80% (Phillip Lim, 20%)
Winner 4: Diane Von Furstenberg, 79% (Rebecca Minkoff, 21%)
Cannot believe A. Wang went down, but I'm kind of happy to see Rebecca Minkoff lose because I've been waiting over a year for a leather strap I purchased (when you had to buy them separately with the MAB and MAB mini bags).
I'm curious to see who would move forward in Vince vs. Splendid because both have some great modal cotton separates, but... I'll save my opinion for after--don't want to sway your vote! Elizabeth and James and Alice and Olivia are also a really nice match up, but I think its obvious whom I'm going with.
Weekly contests are entered to win a Marc by Marc accessory--not too shabby. Last week's winner won a key fob, which I think is a nice gift, because sometimes you want a classy key fob, but who wants to spend over $5 for a keychain (even if you call it a fob). Srsly.
So if you want to play, go to Shop It To Me Battle of the Brands Round 2.
- Must be a Shop It To Me subscriber to win. (Signing up only takes 2 minutes! Just visit www.shopittome.com.)
- Votes must be in by this Friday, 9/25 at 5 pm PST.
