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.

During Jones’ own battle with cancer back in 2008, the South Jersey resident started making her own unique robes to avoid the unsightly hospital-issued gowns worn during radiation. The robes caught on, and suddenly everyone wanted their own, to which Jones happily obliged. It was her “Vera Wang moment,” she says.

Sometimes it can be tricky to gauge the extent of a sale, particularly a sale announced via email blast. Is it a store full of markdowns? Just a rack? Maybe a bin? Are there coupons and a secret handshake involved? You only really know what’s in store until you’re, well, in the store. So I did some recon at Erdon on Friday afternoon. Let’s put it this way: There’s an entire room dedicated to discounted designer merch.

Photographic evidence ahead.

Monday Obsession: 3.1 Phillip Lim x Linda Farrow Sunglasses at Joan Shepp

Monday-Obsession

It’s rare that Philly is gifted with brick-and-mortar access to limited-time designer collaborations. It usually warrants some super-quick online ordering come release day, or worse, begging an NYC boutique to mail ‘em to you. So if the announcement of the 3.1 Phillip Lim x Linda Farrow collaboration had you booking Greyhound tickets, don’t fret! You can buy the sunglasses right here in Philly. Joan Shepp for the win!
