Kardashians to help with hurricane repairs

A local group that works to repair homes damaged by Hurricane Dolly says they’ll be getting some help from celebrities.

The PRIDE Foundation will bring Kim Kardashian and her sisters to the Valley. They’ll help raise money for hurricane repairs. And since the summer months are here, they’ll also be raising money to provide fans for elderly people to use this summer.

The “Cooks, Cars, & Kardashian’s” event will take place July 18 at the Edinburg Race Way. There will be music, food, a car and bike show and even a fashion show.

Kim K's Blog: With My Girl Ciara in London!

I am now in London! I got here to work for E! Season three of our show is on air here in London. My girl Ciara is here too so you know I had to watch her in concert! She performed at the Britney Spears concert and you know how much I love Brit Brit! Ciara blew me away. Her dancing was amazing and her costume was insane!!! She can dance her butt off! She is gonna give me dance lessons. We then stayed for the Britney show because my mom had never seen it and was excited to see Britney! Wow! We were again blown away. Brit's show here was even better than the LA show I went to. We sat so close and the whole experience was just such a rush. We literally landed at Heathrow airport (I slept the ENTIRE flight, so I was well rested), changed in the airport and headed straight to the concert. We were rushing to get there and made it just in time to see Ciara get all ready in her dressing room. After the Britney show Ciara, my mom and I were starving, so we attempted to go to Nobu but they were closed so we went to Mr. Chow. Food was so good! Then we headed to the hotel to get some sleep! I love London and everyone's accent!

Tuesdays With Twiggers: What Does Limited Edition Louis Vuitton Really Mean?

All luxury handbag designers are busy trying to lure in new customers, and keep their established customers spending more and more. Louis Vuitton does an exceptional job every season keeping its customers satisfied. Every season we are bombarded with a copious amount of new handbags and accessories to buy, and more often than not the name of the handbag is followed by the words limited edition. These two words spell trouble for bank accounts around the globe as women scramble to be first on the waitlist. Limited edition is often equated with exclusivity and we will gladly pay over $2000 for a canvas bag because only 5000 were produced!

Recently, I have pondered what limited edition really means. Louis Vuitton has recently re-released several limited edition items and has subsequently caused me to really think about my purchases. For example, the Millionaires sunglasses were recently re-released this past summer. Great news for those who missed out the first time, but for those who were lucky to obtain the first time around how do you now feel? Personally, I would feel slighted and angry that the company was dishonest with me! As another example, the Monogram Olympe Nimbus was released for the Spring/Summer 2007 season in two colors. Originally offered as a limited edition item, it has now been re-released for Fall/Winter 2007 in two new colors and a new size!! The Monogram Miroir was re-released in the Lockit style. And the heart coin purse, which sold out in weeks, is also being re-released this upcoming winter!!!

All of this does make me really think about the purchases I will make. Do I buy a bag solely because it is limited edition, or because I love the bag? Do I buy the bag to use it, or to collect it and possibly resell it in the future? If bags and accessories are being re-released it causes the resale value to decline, and of course the exclusivity associated with the brand also starts to decline?

How would you feel if this happened to you?

Call 1-866-VUITTON for information about upcoming limited edition releases.

In the News: Luxury the new McDonald’s

We are all very aware that we pay mark up on our designer handbags, and if you are not aware, get out from under that rock. I love designer handbags, obviously, but sometimes even I gasp at the price tags. If you ever shop with me you may see me peering at price tags and my face becoming flush and then I walk off and browse more. That is from the price tag, the exorbitant price tag. But I keep on buying and I keep on sharing with all of you the next hot handbags and those that are not. The writer of Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Lustre, Dana Thomas, compared Louis Vuitton to McDonald’s, being recognizable as the golden arches with no pizazz from the chairman of Louis Vuitton, Bernard Arnault.

Through NAP for $1540.

Designer Handbag: Pick of the Week: Balenciaga City

Balenciaga was one of the first brands to start the huge craze in the handbag world. The Fendi’s and Gucci’s preceded, but the Balenciaga craze was entirely new. People scouring the world for the best color, the right seasons leather, and the perfect combination. Celebrities went into a B-Bag wearing frenzy as well, only making the buzz surrounding the brand grow more. And when it comes down to it, the house favorite size, shape, and color is perfectly combined on the Balenciaga City in black leather. Buy through Balenciaga for $1395.
