We begin with thanks to all who have offered suggestions in response to yesterday’s post about a fellow blogger’s Bridal Fashion crisis. It appears things are looking up and we may be able to avert a wedding tragedy! But now is no time to let up — do pop over to yesterday’s post if you missed it and share your thoughts!
Here is a quick sampling of a few suggestions Miss Daisy has received.
The Balvano by Bruno Magli is available at one of TP’s favorite haunts, Arthur Beren. (We are *so* incredibly old we even remember when there was just a catalog we received in the mail. You know, before the internet.)
And we can testify to the fact that every pair of Bruno’s we have ever worn have been oh-so-comfy, regardless of heel height. Another suggestion that came in is the ‘modified D’Orsay pump‘ as seen at BridalShoes.com
Here at the Prepatorium we are curious about something, and hopeful one of our kind readers can give us some insight on this issue. (That issue comes after the photo.)
We are curious to know how long Brook Brothers been doing this sort of ‘accessory’ item? The Tiered Lacquerware Box is located online in the Women’s Accessories category, under Lacquerware. While TP loves her lacquerware along with the rest of society, an investment of $3500 seems a bit steep for something of this nature.
For those unaffected by the rare illness in the preppy blogger family known as LogoPhobia, this may be appealing.
The Brooks Brothers Crest Mug Set is $98. But that is for a set. Of two mugs. (On the up side, they *are* dishwasher safe.) Readers know that we *do* have a fundamental understanding of branding and marketing, a basic comprehension of appealing to the “aspirational shopper,” the customer not able to purchase the Brooks Brothers suit but able to buy something like the mugs. What we aren’t grasping is why anyone who has a spare $3500 would share the wealth with the good folks at Brooks (still one of our favorite brands) for what is essentially a set of boxes with the retailer’s logo on the front?
Now frankly, this next item has a cute factor. Not a purchase we would make for ourselves, but would definitely consider for several friends.
The Jolly Roadster Ornament by Christopher Radko is now only $31 for anyone interested in the cute little car.
Since we seem to be chatting about nautical items, it brings to mind the new Sailboat Napkin Rings we just ordered at market:
We were thinking they will go nicely with the Princess Anchors Aweigh Napkins.
It is time to fly, too much to do, and nowhere near enough time! TP is scrambling!
