"Why Am I Still Here?" ::Vintage Bag Edition

"Why am I still here?" That is the absolutely heart-wrenching question that this beautiful vintage bag posed to me this afternoon, as I pulled out the red marker to change the price from $54 to $40.50. "Don't be upset," I said, attempting to console it, "I am certain we will find you a lovely home. With your perfectly executed color-blocking, incredibly soft deerskin panel and superbly functional size and shape, I bet the very next woman who puts you over her shoulder will be unable to resist bringing you home."

Say It with Something That Sparkles

Looking for a gift that says "I love you?" How about one that says "I'm SUCH a good friend that I bought you something I really want myself?"

Whatever you are hoping to convey with your gifts this holiday season, say it with something that sparkles! Below is just a small sampling of the incredible array of jewelry available at Redress Boston right now.

The longer I work in fashion, the more certain I become of the veracity behind the statement that fashion is, in fact, a competitive sport. Heck, when there's a good enough sale, it can even be a contact sport. I say this as a, now-reformed, shopper, who, for many years, elbowed their way to the front of the line on Black Friday to snag all the steals before you could get to them (tell your bank account I said "you're welcome").

Of course, there is another, far more sensible option--don't shop harder, shop smarter. Here at Redress Boston, we've got enough deals to go around EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR. Snag the outfit shown below and you'll look so FUR-OCIOUSLY FASHIONABLE that all of your friends will be wondering just how many fellow shoppers you had to push and elbow to look THAT GOOD. And when they do, you can smile proudly back and share that you are, in fact, WAY too smart for THAT. 

Jacket: Vintage Milady's Beaver Trim Coat (sz M), $103.50
Dress: Elie Tahari Blurred Print Sleeveless Shift (sz 10), $74
Belt: Pink Faux Reptile (sz M), $18
Necklace: Black Beaded Costume, $18

The Favorite Child

I know it's not nice to play favorites--really, I do. I want to find loving homes for everyone, from the demure little black dresses to stunning cocktail frocks. But every once in awhile a dress comes along so stunning yet so flattering, not to mention humble enough to be willing to go for a good deal. And then I just can't help myself. This DVF wrap dress (sz 10, $128) is that dress.

This vintage handbag by Morris Moskowitz ($78) has all the charm of a modern Minkoff and all the class befitting a woman her age.

Like any true classy lady, she would never tell you just how old she is. And just looking at her it would be hard to guess. Amazingly, she is a child of the 1950s, but shhh! Don't tell her I told you.

"Why Am I Still Here?" Asked the Yurman-inspired Necklaces

"Why am I still here?" That is the question these beautiful Yurman-inspired necklaces asked of me as I was marking them down from $38 to $14.44 (BOTH NOW SOLD) this morning. 

"It couldn't be your chain length," I told them, "since it's perfect for dresses 
and t-shirts alike." "It couldn't POSSIBLY be your magnetic clasp," I observed, "it's easy-to-do and doesn't catch on hair." "Well it's definitely not our stones," they added, "they are fantastic neutral colors and would go with almost anything!"

Won't you consider giving them a loving home?

The New It Bag

Handbag designer Rebecca Minkoff called it correctly when she predicted that a convertible satchel would be the new "it" bag for fall. This season we've seen adaptations from Badgley Mishka, Pour La Victoire, and Foley + Corinna, to name just a few, gracing store shelves.

Redress Boston recently got in an out-of-this-world adorable (& functional) Derek Lam convertible satchel. While comparable Derek Lam bags sell for about $1500 retail, we have it priced in-store at just $298.
