7 Hilarious Reviews of Blake Lively’s New Lifestyle Website ‘Preserve’

Preserve

The PRESERVE homepage, a study in sepia, dramatic silhouettes and fonts straight outta Colonial Williamsburg.

At long last, Blake Lively’s new “lifestyle site” is here. It is called Preserve and it is one part Martha Stewart, one part Kinfolk, two parts painful earnestness, and five parts Instagram filter. Shoppist’s assistant editor Marina pointed out that the sun-kissed photo of a golden-haired Blake romantically penning the site’s “editor’s letter” looks a whole lot like this photo of Gossip Girl‘s Serena van der Woodsen studying for her SATs.
The resemblance is uncanny.

Jonathan Adler’s Massive Online Warehouse Sale is Kitschy Shopping Heaven

Jonathan-AdlerIt’s heeeere: Jonathan Adler’s long-awaited warehouse sale. And, even better, it’s online, so you don’t have to make a mid-day dash to our Old City Adler outpost to score the deals.

Day In The Life: Soccer Star Maurice Edu Owns HOW Many Shoes?!

Just before the World Cup craziness, I spent some time with the Philadelphia Union’s star midfielder Maurice Edu in his Rittenhouse apartment. He was in the midst of packing for the final stages of World Cup training in Brazil (sadly, he was eliminated from the final roster with Landon Donovan). His apartment was nearly bare—he ping-pongs around the world during the year—save for a giant TV on the floor and a pop-a-shot game in a corner.

Oh, and the sneakers. Boxes upon boxes of sneakers, designer pairs piled up in his closet, sportier pairs holding court in a front room, each shoebox labeled with a photo of the pair inside, Mariah Carey-style.

See where he shops here.

I own a Fitbit. It’s black, and it’s not anything to look at. (Actually, it has broken twice, so it’s not really anything to swear by either, but that’s another post.) I bought one with two co-workers, the motley trio of us peppering the poor saleswoman at the City Sports on Walnut Street with questions not at all related to the actual technology of the device: Do these come in any other colors? Can I get this in silver? Can you stud them?
