Every Wednesday between now and December 19th we’ll be asking our staff members to choose 1 gift set from our 2012 Gift Collection and then they’ll tell us to whom they plan to gift it this holiday season…
Today we caught Jordan, our Finance & Inventory Manager, by the water cooler to ask her which Gift Set is her favorite – she has her eye on the Mad Plaider & Jackie O’Lantern Deano/Mini Deano Set.
*(also featured in Monday’s post!)
“This gift would be perfect for my friend at Bowling Green State University. Their school colors are orange and brown, and the bags are perfect for a student’s needs. The Original Dean-o carries laundry from the dorms perfectly, and the Mini Dean-o is the perfect go-to for carrying everything you need to class.”
One group chooses orange to carry out spring or resort concepts, the other group chooses it because it appears distinctly autumnal… we say maintain that flare year-round! Case in point: tangerine; this brighter orange carries red undertones, keeping it saturated so you can pair it with another strong bright in a fall outfit, or so you can introduce a bold hue into your white-jeans-and-a-top combo while on a spring vacation. The possibilities for this seasonless color are just about endless when used in the right separate or accessory!
OF THE ORANGE VARIETY:
Separates, from left to right: Tory Burch Wool-blend Peplum Sweater; Sophie Theallet Tangerine 4-Ply Silk Crepe Pencil Skirt; Tobi Denim Leggings; Strenesse Orange Blazer; Erdem Ivy Dress.

Here’s to toting gifts… in your Big A** Bag, that is! We thought this week would be a fun, goofing around week where we offer up totally price-friendly ‘gift’ items for your friends and peers who are feeling just as scatter-brained as they run around from store to store picking up the presents they’ll need in the coming weeks. Enjoy the mad dash to the register and remember, this week, your gift-giving should have an element of humour!

“To our surprise, Halloween inspirations were alive and well across the pond. Some of our favorites include the SmartCar in high-velocity orange, leopard spots printed over vibrant orange twinned with grey, the brown and orange color-blocked satchel, oversized rag dolls dressed in high couture, the Louis Vuitton gilded handcuffs and corseted shag coat, and the seventies-inspired crocheted mini in shades of tangerine and blood orange. Get your ghoul on stylishly – never forsake fashion when putting together your Halloween costume.”
