The Consort On Bulldogs, Bracelets & Bags

Hello-hello, all.  The Consort gliding effortlessly mikeside to dazzle and baffle you while my lovely and talented bride tends to other obligations.  She’s throwing herself into a tizzy regarding Fashion Week and I’ve learned to keep a low profile during these… spells.  We have much to discuss today so let’s jump right in!

trunk o'bulls from Buddies Thru Bulldogs

You know our fondness for bulldogs here at the Prepatorium.  Tilly is a great joy and sometimes a challenge.  I can’t imagine what the good people at the “Buddies Thru Bulldogs” rescue group in south Florida must deal with on a daily basis.  The photo above was taken after an adoption event and it is one of my favorite bulldog shots ever.  Love those faces!

One of the challenges the group faces is vet care for the dogs.  As you can imagine, the bulls that end up at the shelter are often in pretty rugged shape.  Like Dozier.

Meet Dozier

Dozier had developed a growth on his left rear paw.  Surgery was needed.

Prepping For Surgery

Despite the great work by the surgical team the paw could not be saved.  The decision was made to take Dozier’s left hind leg to his hip.  Within hours after the surgery Dozier was standing on his own.

Dozier & The Doc

The recovery continued and a couple of days later Dozier ventured unaided outside.

Dozier On The Loose

This is a happy story.  Not all the stories end with smiles.  But through the laughter and the tears the good folks at “Buddies Thru Bulldogs” do the best they can to provide excellent care, good homes and tons of love to bulldogs who have been battered, surrendered or abandoned.  I have no affiliation with them at all other than I respect the work they, and all the pet rescue people, do every day.  Please support your local rescue groups; I’m certain they will appreciate your help.

++++++++++

We just got off of the phone with one of our favorite people of all-time: Kiel James Patrick.  I’m always energized after talking with him because he’s exploding with creative ideas.  By now you’ve noticed Kiel’s bracelets featured in the new Tommy Hilfiger campaign.  Say what you will about Mr. Hilfiger, at least he has the good taste to accessorize with Kiel’s products.  We’ve been proud to carry Kiel’s bracelets, headbands and earrings at The Preppy Princess for some time now, he is good enough to design exclusive pieces for us, that is always a fun process.  Right now Kiel is in the city for Fashion Week, we can’t wait to hear what he comes up with next!

++++++++++

I’m also feeling good about a relationship we’re growing with the folks at Sailor Bags.  Some of you might remember when The Princess mentioned meeting them in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago.  Their bags are TDF!  All their bags are made of supple and durable new sailcloth.  The designs, ranging from REAL BIG duffel bags to lunch sacks, are practical and hardworking.  They’re guaranteed for life and,  yes, they can be personalized.  They make great gifts for the boat people in your life, memorable prizes for your next regatta or just to bang around in the back of the car.  Beach season is just around the corner (I keep telling myself that!) so you’ll want to order your Sailor Bags today!

Enough of my wandering about… it’s time to strike fear into the hearts of the poor souls in the Shipping Department.  The Princess will be back tomorrow with more on NYFW and other goodies.  I’ll leave you with the reminder to take care of your waitperson because they’re working hard for you today.  Oh, one more thing… Let The Day Begin!

Friday Fun of The Mostly Nautical Kind

Hello everyone, and welcome to a Friday; we hope everyone’s weekend looks promising, may there be no colossal weather events besetting any of our cherished readers.

Today we focus on springlike things in an effort to remind ourselves that the warmer temps and the next season are really just six weeks away (revisionist math it appears), we start with a darling item from the folks at Sperry:

Sperry Top-sider

That is one of the cutest key chains we have ever seen, the Original Boat Shoe Key Chain is available online for only $10; this one clearly peaks the Cute-o-Meter in the red zone.

Keeping our focus on a kinder, gentler Mother Nature, we bring you a few images shot for Nautica’s spring advertising campaign, we love the madras.

The nautical influences Nautica built its brand upon are evident throughout the collection.

Nautica’s spring collection is now online, below we show the Anchors Aweigh Polo for girls and the Anchors Onesie for infants.

Images from Nautica’s spring campaign may be viewed at the company’s flickr photo stream.

In keeping with the seaside theme we want to show off some of our newest goodies here at The Prepatorium, our line of Sailor Bags. Made out of real sailcloth, the bags are almost indestructible and come with a lifetime guarantee. First, the classic Duffel Bags.

PreppyPrincess.com

Made from double-layered sailcloth, these have a waterproof liner and are loaded with pockets on the inside, plus a quick access pocket on the outside.

There is also a smaller, personal-size ‘Duffel Purse‘.

PreppyPrincess.com

The Insulated Cooler Bags are outstanding.

PreppyPrincess.com

Available in 8-pack to 24-pack size, the Coolers run $37 to $64. We like the outside pockets on these, as well as the velcro handle wrap.

PreppyPrincess.com

All of our Sailor Bag merchandise may be personalized for an additional $12 charge.

No one will be surprised to hear that yours truly is interested in many items from this collection, including the Tote Bags.

Of particular note for those carrying lunch and other edibles to and from the office or school, the Lunch Bags ($29) offer a wider mouth to handle some of those take-out and plastic containers we all use now and again. The lining also pulls completely out for easier cleaning, and the handy outer pocket is ideal for silverware, condiments, and other necessities.

PreppyPrincess.com

There is also a Lunch Sack ($20) for those not requiring quite as much room.

PreppyPrincess.com

There are loads of other goodies on the site now (the poor Consort, he has been madly typing his little fingers to the bone getting these online) with more on the way, we do love this line.

While sailcloth bags are ideal any time of the year, we move back to springtime goods from Coach, promoting new its new pieces, such as the Alexis Tattersall Trench.

Coach

Frequent readers are aware of our incessant whining distaste for the heavily logoed merchandise Coach has pushed the last decade, but there are some solid possibilities for the younger set in the spring group. The Poppy Spring Blazer is rather interesting.

Coach

Also appealing, the Emma Blazer in black and fuchsia, if one can overlook the insignia on the pocket.

The classic lines accented by the lapel, pocket & cuff trim evokes a prep-school style.  The Tyler Flat is promising in two new colorways.

We remain fond of the Poppy Enamel Bow Bangle, here is the newest version.

Coach

On that fun and whimsical image, we say g’bye until next time!
