Slow and Steady Wins the Race Birkin ?

My first review of Mary Ping’s historical archive line was back in December 2007 when I discovered her take on a Gucci and Balenciaga cross bag at American Rag in Los Angeles. Since then she has done everything from bags to accessories to clothing. I still love her take on the luxurious classics and recently she did the ultimate. Mary took the Hermes Birkin bag and gave it her twist. She created the Slow & Steady Wins the Race 4 Sided Birkin bag. The bag is made of leather and lined in fabric. It is 1/10 of the price of the Hermes Birkin and gives you a sense of carrying the Hermes Birkin when you hold it in your hand. Some people think the idea of making a version of the Hermes Birkin with a twist is sacrilege. I say to each his own. If you cannot afford the Hermes Birkin, what is wrong with the Slow & Steady Wins the Race created 4 Sided Birkin bag? If you like the bags, click the photos below to get them now. Why not.

Shopping and Info Gift Ideas for the holidays: a canvas Balenciaga bag

on November 21st, 2008

This year I wanted to give thoughtful gifts that had meaning or something to do with the environment. I found some pretty cool gifts that I thought you might like too.

My most favorite gift is this $20 I Am Not a Paper Cup by James Burgess from the MOMA store. How cool is this? I always wanted to just have a supply of take away coffee cups at my house so I can pour a cup of joe into it and take it in my car, but since that is bad for the environment, I did not buy all those cups and do that. When I saw this, I thought, why didn’t I think of this?

I Am Not A Paper Cup
James Burgess, 2007

An eco-friendly alternative to disposable cups, this double-walled porcelain version with a pliable silicone lid keeps beverages hot and doesn’t burn your hand. Dishwasher-safe. Cup is microwave-safe.
Set of 2 replacement lids sold separately.

Click the cup to buy it now from MOMA. I love it.

My next top pick is by Small and Steady Wins the Race. Their stuff examines everything we take for granted from designer sunglasses to designer handbags. My favorite line from them is the $100 canvas Gucci, Balanciaga, Hermes, Dior look alike bags. They are too cool for words. So if you are on a budget, or your boyfriend is dying to buy you something for Christmas or Hanukkah but does not want to spend $1,500 and up, by one of these little cuties. Click the photos to buy them direct now.
