FASHIONABLE
Gift Guide for the Fashionista


Botkier handbags, designed by Monica Botkier, are inspired by creating functional bags with designer quality at a much more reasonable price. This miniature crossbody in luxurious Italian lambskin is the perfect gift for any fashion savvy girl on the go. The flawless lambskin comes in four shades, (we are loving the Graffiti Leopard!) features a clever money clip closure, and has just enough room for our keys, lip-gloss, and iPhone. What more could a girl ask for?

Style Stalker: On the Streets in Boston

Local artists, photographers, designers and musicians swarmed the Lily Pad in Cambridge last Sunday night to celebrate the launch of a new Boston-based online collaborative arts magazine called Spirited. Boston dandy Mitch Hampton entertained on piano while guests sipped Bols Genever punch and Pretty Things beer, and visiting musicians Faux Fix from New Haven were in attendance to play some new material. There was much fabulous fashion to be had and I narrowed in on three guests I thought had amazing style.

BECKA DIAMOND
Bloggers Claim To Fame: The Selby

Word is, famed blogger Todd Selby has landed another campaign after recently shooting for Cole Haan, shooting for Nike 6.0 and launching his book, The Selby Is In Your Place.

It's said that Selby will be shooting for Crate and Barrel, as rising It Girl, Becka Diamond, may be landing a starring role in the campaign. Though we're not sure how true this is - considering we've never seen a Crate and Barrel anything with people posing in it.

Regardless, kudos to Selby, as we promote his plot to take over Scott Schumans identity bloggers creating a substantial career for themselves.
