Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

When we released the first edition of the Chromapost bag collaboration between Brooklyn Industries and Artbridge, it quickly sold out, prompting a second (and final) release of these bags. Available online or in select stores, give the Chromapost bags as a gift… or keep it for yourself ; )

The Chromapost bags are messenger bags made out of billboard material from an art installation in Dumbo, Brooklyn by artist Aleksandar Maćašev and the non-profit arts organization Artbridge. We carefully cut up Maćašev’s visual color diary into 80 limited edition messenger bags, with each bag coming with a digital print of the unique colors of the bag signed by the artist.

GREAT GIFT IDEA: NO SLEEP TILL ONESIE

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

Everyone loves clothing in a size small, and by that we mean miniature sizes, like the type of clothing that fits babies and tots! Our latest (and cutest!) onesie online right now is the “No Sleep Till” onesie that we’re certain moms and moms-to-be will love. Referencing a popular song about Brooklyn, this little item rings true (since most moms with babies this size may not see much sleep until the baby has outgrown this particular item).

It’s available for babies 0 to 24 months and is super-soft 100% pima cotton. Small enough to fit in a stocking and affordable to gift, we suggest getting this onesie before it’s gone!

GREAT GIFT IDEA: ETERNITY SCARF

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

We’re always huge fans of clothing that make getting dressed in the morning easier. Naturally, this means our staff is excited about the Eternity Scarf which some may even dare to call a “snood”. With this scarf, there’s no readjusting to keep it wrapped around the neck when the winds blow. It’s designed to stay wrapped and what else could you want (besides the Fjord, of course) on a cold winter’s day.It’s a great add-on present for someone you’ve already purchased a gift for. In this case, we’re voting more is better and giving the Eternity Scarf a 10 out of 10, for warmth, practicality and functionality. Buy it. Give it. We promise you won’t regret it.

GREAT GIFT IDEA: H-BAG, ARGYLE

Tuesday, December 15th, 2009

Number two on our Procrastinator’s Gift Guide List is the H-Bag in Argyle. One of the reasons why we’re such big fans of this bag is the shape. It may look like a simple, single interior compartment bag, but alas!, it’s so much more. There are actually a total of three interiors in this bag – a front back and middle. There is so much room and tons of space to organize things ladies need to carry. In addition to all the interior zip and snap compartments, the front has pockets as well. There’s even a detachable change purse.

The H – Bag is a wonderful gift for women of all ages and could definitely be a great gift for teens who are starting to ditch their backpacks for handbags. Any vegans out there or animal friendly consumers? Our H – Bags are leather free. The exterior is 100% cotton and the interior has a cotton-base as well.

The Argyle design makes it easy to love and wear. It’s sophisticated and can be worn in many seasons and for many occasions. We’ve even heard of moms wearing this bag as an alternative to diaper bags. There’s that much room! Take it from us, this purchase is a must-have, a good gift and a timeless classic. Gift it to a lady you love.

THE PROCRASTINATOR’S GIFT GUIDE WEEK!

Monday, December 14th, 2009

If you’re on the hunt for gifts before the 25th time is running out, which you probably realize.This week, we’ll give you our top 5 must-have gifts one by one. Sometimes good things (or shopping tips) are worth waiting for, but don’t wait too long. The last day for guaranteed next day air holiday shipping is 10 AM on December 23rd! First up on the list is our BFF graphic t-shirts! Everyone has a BFF, right? Many of us remember the days when we coordinated with our favorite pal and wore matching gear down the halls of our high school. This retro-inspired t-shirt will bring up memories of friendship bracelets and bling (as in extravagant gold jewelry at its best).

This tee is a great gift for sisters, daughters, or for you and your very own BFF – even if your school days are long gone. There’s the right side of the chain and the left side of the chain, and both can be worn when the other half isn’t around. It’s a fun reminder that BFFs are what we like to call TC (totally cool).

GREAT GIFT IDEA: INFINITY CHUNKY SCARF

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009


Infinity scarves could very well be the perfect gift for women (like your mom, sister, best friend, or girlfriend) this holiday season. Without much effort they can brighten up an outfit and even be worn like a necklace, draped across the front over a t-shirt or sweater. There’s something extremely chic about the layers it creates and they’re incredibly warm and functional. Our Infinity Chunky Scarf is available in four great colors. There’s a basic black, ruby red, light brown and grey. Our model is wearing the grey in our holiday campaign and it couldn’t look cozier. It’s a fantastic gift that falls in the under $50 price category. You also won’t feel too guilty if you’re in the market for giving gifts to yourself!
