We Love These Billy Transport Co. Subway Station Tote Bags


There are all types of Philly-centric goods and souvenirs out there—some good, some not so good. The goods ones we like to gift to out-of-towners, but it’s rare we see Philly souvenirs we want to sling ourselves. Because, ya know, we actually live here.

Then these subway totes by The Billy Penn Transport Co. landed in our email inbox. We squealed at their hometown glory charm, and then started forwarding the link to all our fellow commuting neighbors. It was love at first sight.

Here’s how to get ‘em.

Score a Secret Club Monaco Discount On Friday


Shopping by yourself is great and all, but I think it’s more fun to shop with others. And by others, I mean me. (Really, I’m brutally honest; I can show you how to wear that dress as a skirt/tunic/turban, and I can give you my top-secret tips for justifying almost any purchase, and how to then hide this purchase from your significant other. Note: Trunks are NOT safe places.) Did I mention that champagne is involved?

The lowdown: I’m hosting a shopping event at Club Monaco on Walnut Street this Friday, from 6pm to 8pm. The (amazing) team there has pulled out all the stops. We’ll have champagne, catering from Starr, and the cutest candy bar you’ve ever seen. But there’s more!

There’s an Actual Waitlist for This $1,750 Fendi Keychain


Back in July, word started to spread about the elusive Karl Lagerfeld Fendi keychain. Ringing in at $1,750, it was über-exclusive, could only be scored at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, and had already amassed a several hundred person-long waitlist. That series of descriptors isn’t uncommon for limited edition designer duds, but this is a keychain—a very expensive mink and fox fur keychain—but a keychain nonetheless.
