Bag Love: SS2013 Ralph Lauren Red Swirl & Tassel Handbag

I am completely obsessed with this bag from Ralph Lauren’s new Spring Summer 2013 collection. The Red Swirl and Tassel Handbag is so original and probably impractical to carry a lot of things, but who cares! It is a stunner; every detail down to the structure, the silhouette, the candy-red apple color, the leather tassels, and the smoothly integrated “RL” is carefully thought out.

I’m sure most of you have noticed the cut-out trend hitting the stores, but we’ll be seeing more of this trend in the Spring. And as you can see, the trend has passed on to handbags.

EDIT: So this Bag is called the Vachetta Scroll Tote, available in Black and Tan as well, going for $2500! Buy or View the Vachetta Scroll at the Ralph Lauren Site!

Oasap then came out with its own version of the Ralph Lauren bag. Though it’s quite identical without the RL at the center on the real ones. You can buy it at Oasap for 50$! It’s a crazy rip-off of the Ralph Lauren Vachetta Tote, but I guess I’m ok because it isn’t a knockoff (It would be if they integrated the RL)

Take Off Your Clothes!

Well…maybe not literally. But here’s a fun (CHARITY!) event to get rid of the clothes that you’re kind of bored of and trade them for new ones – well new to your wardrobe! “Take Off Your Clothes” is a giant clothing swap for charity organized by the SWAP team, a non-profit social enterprise run entirely by volunteers!

Now back in July, the SWAP team organized this event and it was immensely successful. It was such a success that it just had to be done again! Thus the “Take Off Your Clothes – Concordia University Edition” is taking place this Wednesday September 19th, from 1-5pm! You have less than 20 hours to buy your advance tickets! GO GO GO! If not, you can still buy door tickets!

How it works is that on the day of the SWAP event, you bring a bag of clothes you would like to give away. Any accepted item which must be clean and undamaged, earns you 1 exchange coupon, valid for an item at the swap.

We will also be at the event as official fashion consultants. We can offer you advice on how you can style the newly swapped item of clothing, answer any style questions you may have, or even if you just feel like chatting with us!

swap-poster_option2-1It’s a great event to be inspired by vintage-like items, update your wardrobe without breaking the bank account, and indirectly serve your community! All remaining clothing will be donated to Renaissance, a Montreal-based charity!

Here’s just a little tidbit, the SWAP Team was founded in 2007 and has since branched out to different cities. The current chapters are in Montreal, Boston, NYC, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, Halifax, Winnipeg, Northampton (MA) and Quebec City. I can guarantee that it won’t stop there!
