Chanel Ditches Their Authenticity Cards for Custom NFC Microchips

Posted by TESSA HALL

This spring, while loyal Chanel customers were still processing the recent price hikes on their favourite Chanel bags, they had another development coming their way; no more authenticity cards. What was once a staple for verified assurance that what you purchased was the real deal, is now no more. Of course, avid high-end fashionistas may be aware of this change, as they keep up on the latest news pertaining to the luxury market, but others may be caught off guard by its absence.

If you’re a loyal Chanel fan, then you’re already aware that the iconic brand has once again increased their prices of styles, like the Chanel 19 Small Bag, up by 10% as of July 1, 2021. This most recent price increase from Chanel marks it’s third increase in the span of 14 months; during a pandemic no less. Yes, Chanel’s increase was noteworthy among many fashion bibles and publications, but it is not unique from the current trend happening within luxury brands at present.

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Why Buying Secondhand Luxury Products is a Smart Investment

Posted by TESSA HALL

Is investing in the cards for your future? Does that sound totally dry and really not something you’ve thought about in-depth? Once upon a time (when our parents were young adults and thinking about their first investments) you’d have to go into a bank, talk in great lengths to some generic-looking man and try and remember all the jargon words being tossed around like diversification, bonds, dividends, and volatility. Well, times have changed, in a big way! 

Love fashion? Great at scouting out a deal? Then maybe your type of smart investment lies in the resale luxury market.

So clearly 2020 has been nothing like we anticipated. As an extension of that, our new wardrobe looks and choices have kind of been the same way.

Has that tube of mascara you bought in March lasted you into the fall? It’s okay! That’s where we’re at too!

Let’s take the shame out of low-maintenance looks and let’s embrace this new normal for what it has to offer: functional and fashionable alternatives!

The Gifts of Love (and Luxury) 😍

Posted by TESSA HALL

Get out your finest reds and pinks, your cheesiest pickup lines, and your cliché date ideas, because it’s that time of the year again boys and girls: Valentine’s Day! Or maybe we should use the more inclusive alternatives, Galentine’s Day or Palentine’s Day. Whatever which way you decide to celebrate February 14th, whether it’s love-theme or anti-love theme (see Jessica Biel’s character from the 2010 film, Valentine’s Day, as inspiration), you can always do it with fun and colorful style, killer gift ideas, and the ultimate excuse to “treat yo-self” or someone you love!
