Hello-Hello, we hope it is cheery and sunny in your corner of the globe, it is simply beautiful here at the Prepatorium.
We switch gears a tad, taking a break from our dedicated coverage of the major Fashion Weeks, including the fourth and final week of designer shows now underway in Paris. Fear not, we shan’t slight the incredible styles being revealed, and will focus on them in the next day or so.
We simply wanted to take a more lighthearted approach today, things or events that might prompt a smile, perhaps more appropriate to our Friday Fun category, but golly, TP is feeling wild and crazy, so we’ll just have some Friday-Fun-on-Thursday!
We start with a cute and creative way to transform those less-than-attractive helmets worn for protection into magical style statements. Behold, the Princess and the Frog.
For a closer look, here is a better photo of the Princess model, what a great way to stay safe under one’s helmet while also feeling fashionable and fun.
These are constructed of fleece, so they are durable, and they’re available mid-October at the always-fabulous Calliope Boutique. For some reason The Consort is rather fond of this model:
Should we be concerned?
Some readers may carry memories of colored mascaras from back in the eighties. Apparently the trend has returned, according to Hilary Howard’s story, and a plethora of colors awaits your discerning selection. Or not.
Next, a few Sales and Savings opportunities for you to ponder.
The Tory Burch Fall Sale is underway with some significant savings.
Another brand with preppish leanings, Kate Spade, has started its Friends and Family Sale.
The promotional event extends a 30% discount off one’s entire purchase, it ends Oct. 4. To receive the discount use promo code FALLFF09 at checkout.
Another favorite retailer, Garnet Hill, has started their October Clearance, with markdowns taken throughout the store.
Next, news that yet another interesting magazine cover has been landed by a Gossip Girl star. In this case, Ed Westwick is showcased on the cover of Arena Homme+ for their Winter/Spring 2009/2010 issue.
Arena Homme+ describes itself as “The World’s Leading Men’s Fashion Magazine” and while we were unable to locate a website for the publication, we did locate an Arena Homme+ Facebook page for those seeking more information. Additionally, Amazon offers the magazine. (It all looks a little odd to us, but then we’re not very familiar with the magazine.)
We close with a treat discovered by our friends at the Pink and Green Scene, where their vigilance in seeking out all things in our favorite color scheme leads to such discoveries as this Little MissMatched Accent Pillow.
If interested in adding this to the decor at your Palace, it is now on sale at $19.99 right here.
Smiles and hopes of a buoyant day to everyone!
