We here at Styleite can’t help the feeling right now that one of our readers is in, like, seriously dire need of a shiny new phone whose screen doesn’t go black when you try to send the simplest of text messages. So of course, we’re giving away one of the sleekest, most feature-ridden new phones on the market, the Samsung Fascinate.
Cintra Wilson, I love you. Your review of the JC Penney in Herald Square was my Gchat status for weeks, and when someone first sent it to me, I read it four times straight, laughing harder each time, and forwarded in a manic frenzy to everyone I knew. Your differentiation between Kiki de Montparasse and Victoria’s Secret-heavy Agent Provacateur? Spot on, and sent me straight to the Kiki store. Which is why I say, as a total groupie, Isabel Marant as an Army-Navy store? Non!
Some may say that if a baby gets the best of everything right from the beginning, uses a Cartier love bracelet as a teething ring and an Alfa-Romeo as a sandbox, they will have nothing to look forward to. I say pish-posh, with emphasis on posh. If you can swing it, your little Bonpoint Baby will grow up with a sincere and sophisticated appreciation for the finer things in life. Or turn on you completely, and refuse to wear anything but Keds, ripoff jean shorts and grungy band tees — and not the $400 ironic kind from Saks. Here some of the more luxe items available to purchase for the youngest subset of the population — and those who will be most likely to spit on your gift, outgrow it, and otherwise generally unappreciate it.
