Abet

Abet (v): to aid, help, encourage.

I'll be busy these next few weeks, but I'll try to keep up with posting to keep you entertained :] Sorry if I'm behind on commenting back, etc.


So a "trend" that I've been seeing more and more of: customizing your own bags/shoes/whatever-youwant. From build-a-bear to PRADA purses, this is a trend that I can definitely cope with :]


"Customers will be able to choose from a wide variety of decadent materials (suede, leather, crocodile, python, alligator, snakeskin…), rich colors, hardware and detailing so that their bag can be a reflection of their personal tastes and style." Available in Paris, Milan, London, and Tuscany stores. [-The Fashion Spot]

Pick and choose the color, the message, and the packaging for your m&ms at http://www.mymms.com/ Psh, it's all delicious chocolate, so it doesn't matter what the colors are to me!


Customize all the colors that go onto your converse, and personalize it by adding your name (although I personally would add any interesting really long random word) if you wish. www.converse.com

So what would YOUR Prada purse look like?

Elysia said...

CoutureCarrie said...

Ah, yes . . . my dream is to have a customized Goyard tote with my initials!!
But in the meantime, M&Ms will have to do!

Vintage Vinyl said...

advertising now is all about being customized to one's own to feel they are unique and original. And... um... it works!

Gisandelle said...

This is breaking news for me! I would love to personalize my own converse and m&ms!!! This is such a great idea but I bet itll cost a fortune =(

Savvy Gal said...

I noticed too! but they usually also charge more for the bag and I have to wait for the bag instead of taking something home right away. I put an order in for a Loewe bag 2 months ago and still have not received it yet.

Times of Glory said...

Dear, I think you've done so brilliantly! Sometimes I find it almost no time to blog! I love this Prada Ad - so romantically beautiful xxxxxxxxxx

I love the idea of being able to customize your own stuff, it makes it worth the money you spend! Keep blogging, I hope you have time to relax during your busy schedule.

Dana (pron. like Donna) said...

loving the comparison between Prada and build a bear.
My Prada would be rectangular with tassles in distressed leather with gold studs; basically, a Balenciaga giant city bag. Hehe.

Ida said...

The Prada ad is just brilliant. I just love the bag exactly as it is already:)

Ana said...

Like Nike ID only for fashionistas

jess said...

i love custum things it makes me feel really special

Blonde hair, Blue jeans said...

i've seen a lot of Victoria shoes customized.....and there are many of them that are absolutely cool!

Elle said...

Mine would be simple...maybe it would half my initials somewhere, but that's it.

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

i would get my m&m colors in all the original colors: red, yellow, orange, green, light brown and dark brown :) what a fabulously fun idea, but in the end, i don't discriminate...i love all chocolate.

steelcloset said...

Yay it's like going to Michael's for an arts and crafts project. My prada would have lots of cute animals holding guns.

fashion herald said...

I do LOVE this personalizing thing, but I've got zero creativity and am kind of lazy, so i think the best I can do is my initials! sad, yes?!
