#Throwback, Happy Tax Day! Kate Walsh on @TheEllenShow: Billionaire Boyfriend, Get One!

Billionaire Boyfriend1 #Throwback, Happy Tax Day! Kate Walsh on @TheEllenShow: Billionaire Boyfriend, Get One!

The only cure for a closet recession is–tada, that billionaire you should be dating. The job boards are fully populated with people but if you are smart, I mean a quick wit, you already know where to find the money. This fragrance says it all: class, sass, sauce and boss–that’s right, if you are going to wrangle a billionaire this year, why not have the perfect fragrance to irresistibly woo him in. Though many can wrestle and others can win, if you get your hands on one, suggestion: nail him to the floor, cause SHAWTY, competition is FIERCE.

Start with this wonderful fragrance and you will be one of the apples of his eye in no time–if you’re good (at what you do), hopefully he’ll make you number one. If not, hey–he’s a billionaire, there’s plenty of his money to go around. The fragrance is described as “a lavish, decadent expression of seduction and opulence. Live the fantasy and let him spoil you.” Living the fantasy, i.e. the good life is fun, but embodying it is a different story.

The brilliant and seductive note of black jasmine amber is at the heart of this desirable fragrance, making it unforgettable and charmingly extravagant. Succulent fruits of bergamot and tangerine wrapped in lush green leaves intoxicate as the scent blooms into a provocative blend of black jasmine, velvet orchid, gardenia and a touch of patchouli flower. Vetiver, cistus, sandalwood, and golden amber notes finish the alluring experience as it exudes an addictive wealth of warm woods.

When you meet that uber rich prince charming with billions to blow…intoxicate him with your scent, and if you really want to rock his world get the roll on to keep in your purse at Sephora.com!

SheKnows.com Feature: 10 Signs You Are the Crazy-Ex

ex big bang SheKnows.com Feature: 10 Signs You Are the Crazy Ex

You might be justifying all of that Facebook stalking, the late-night texts, the lengthy emails and anonymous phone calls to his new girlfriend (who you’re pretty sure he met while you were still dating), but have you gone too far? Have your friends been subtly hinting that you might be heading into crazy territory?

We’re sharing 10 signs you might be “That Crazy Ex-Bitch” from SheKnows.com

1)  You think about him all the time

When you’re thinking about your ex to the extent that these thoughts are interfering with your day-to-day life, he’s become your focus, notes April Masini, author and relationship expert at AskApril.com. He shouldn’t be your focus — you should be your focus. “It’s understandable that breaking up requires a transition period, but after a few months, these thoughts should taper off, and you should focus more on what’s in front of you that’s possible, and not on what’s behind you,” she advises.

2) You still have him on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Following a breakup, it’s a good idea to cut social media ties with an ex. If you haven’t, you’re likely still too attached. “You’re going to be tortured by his presence on your social media, especially when he starts dating,” says Masini. “You won’t be able to enjoy your social media friends and contacts when you’re always clicking on his information.”

3) You stalk him regularly on social media

As Masini tells us, keeping your ex on Facebook or similar can easily lead to stalking. The information is readily available and oh-so-tempting to pore over again and again. But, she warns that you won’t get the whole story behind the photos or the tweets, just enough to lure you in and get you addicted: “Stalking means you’ve given up your power and you’re investing it in a failed relationship.”

True story: For about six months after my last breakup, the first thing I did every morning, even before coffee, was check my ex’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Finally my best friend came over and deleted him from all platforms to save my sanity. I love her for it. Rochelle, 28

4) You ask his friends about him

Continuously asking his friends or your mutual friends for information about your ex is a mistake and a big step into crazy ex territory. “Before you know it, you’re going to get a reputation, and you’ll start noticing your invitations are dissipating,” says Masini. “If you can’t stop asking or wondering, make new friends who don’t know him,” she advises.

True story: I convinced myself it was better to ask about my ex than not talk about him because I thought it made me seem like I was more over it. But really I just ended up sounding like a broken record and if I’m honest, a bit of a stalker. Anonymous

5) You frequent places you might see him

Do yourself (and your dignity) a favor and stay away from places you know he’ll be. “As soon as he realizes you’re following him, or worse, showing up at his haunts before he even gets there, he’s going to eventually find new places to hang out and you’ll be out of the loop,” warns Masini. She suggests using the breakup as an opportunity to find a better gym, a better coffee shop and a better dog park.

True story: I was so intent on seeing my ex I joined his gym. Big mistake. It was so awkward every time I saw him I could never concentrate on my workouts and I quit a month later.Deanna, 25

6) You still have all the things he gave you

Still have all his stuff? It’s time to purge. “Keeping a shrine to your ex by maintaining a box of his stuff long after you’ve broken up with him is going to be weird at best, and obsessive at worst,” Masini says. It also keeps you anchored in the past. She recommends getting his stuff together and mailing it back to him, his mom or donating it to Goodwill.

7) You text and email him

Women who chase men lose out, Masini says. And guess what? Texting, emailing and calling him count as chasing him — especially when you’re initiating the chase, she explains: “I’ve heard from loads of women who justify doing this, but in the end, it catches up to them. If he’s your ex, that means he’s going to sleep with you if you make it that easy, but he’s also going to be looking for relationships and sex elsewhere, too.”

8) You’re devising plans to get back together

People do reunite, but the circumstances need to be right and both people need to be ready. But, says Masini, if he’s changed the locks, is dating someone else, and you saw them perusing rings at the mall, chances are, no matter how elaborate a plan you’ve hatched, he’s moved on: “It takes two people to get together, and one to break up.”

9) You want to sabotage his new relationship

The problem with sabotage, as tempting as it is when you find out he’s dating someone else, is that you may end up driving him further away from you and more quickly into the arms of this new person. “You’ll get a short-term boost and a long-term let down. The best revenge is living well, and that’s a fact,” says Masini. “If you really want to make him second guess himself, go have a great life and be gracious and polite.”

True story: My friends and I spent so many hours and consumed many bottles of wine, hatching schemes of sabotage to scare off my ex’s new girlfriend. We never put any into action, but I’m still embarrassed I was so intent on breaking them up. Laurel, 32

10) Your friends are sick of hearing about him

You might be hung up on your ex, but eventually your friends aren’t going to want to hear about it. “You’ll know that your friends are sick of hearing about your ex because they’ll stop calling you, the calls they do make will be shorter, and you’ll be invited out less and less,” says Masini. “You’ll start hearing about fun times you weren’t included in because they didn’t want to hear tales of woe.”

Editorial Throwback: How Attainable Luxury is Changing the Market

JimmyChoo 300x298 Editorial Throwback: How Attainable Luxury is Changing the Market

The World Wide Web has given way new online culture of fashion addicts who love the finer things in life but don’t necessarily want to pay full price for them. This new demand for luxury goods at discounted prices is playing a huge role in the diminishing returns traditional retailers are seeing. Department stores like Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman can hardly compete with companies like Gilt.com and HauteLook.com. Luxury resale is growing market as well. A swift fashionista can pick up a gently worn item over at Portero and save a huge chunk of change.

As luxury marketers and consumers we have to wonder what this means. Has luxury lost it’s exclusivity?

I would say absolutely not. Though marketing of luxury goods is changing, exclusivity is something that is determined by stable, consistent prices and scarcity of goods. If the “true” luxury brands refuse to discount, then luxury can stay exclusive. Some brands discount for the sake of moving stale merchandise. Even Jimmy Choo, one of the most popular luxury handbag and shoe brands, hosts a sample sale twice a year.

It’s important not to forget the emphasis that luxury brands must place on quality and craftsmanship. What sets a luxury brand apart from its cheaper counterpart is its distinct elegance, that stands out among lesser quality goods.  True luxury brands are timeless and transcend trends. When determining if something is luxurious many point to the price tag. However, I would ask myself a few other questions as well. For instance, how long will the product last? Will it get better with age? Is it an heirloom piece or more of a trendy item? Where did it originate from? Are the textiles trustworthy?

Many marketers try to pass non-luxury items off as luxury pieces in an effort to add value and prestige. We are all familiar with knockoffs and luxury “inspired” goods. One of the many factors contributing to diminishing value of luxury goods is knock-offs. When a consumer is paying a low price to obtain a luxury knock-off, the value of the original item depreciates.  The rat race to sales and immediate accessibility combined with the global presence of the online realm has led to a marketing “Catch 22″: if a brand presents a product online for the sake of the sale, it  makes itself vulnerable to knock-offs and replications. What’s a luxury brand to do? I would say it’s important to concentrate on authenticity, or focus on an element that cannot be easily replicated by a competitor.

The lines between the authentic and the faux-luxe are blurred, and the inundation of affordable luxury goods and knock-offs into the luxury world is making it more and more difficult to distinguish the two. If luxury is more readily accessible, so what? People are still buying luxury goods, but the economic climate and market have changed. Consumers are still vying for the same luxury items as before the market tanked, they just want them at a better price point. Most luxury brands are dependent on their loyal customers with whom they have built lasting relationships, so if the brands don’t discount they can still stay in the market. The only proven way to maintain brand equity is to refuse to discount, and the only way to keep some customers is to give them a break. So what’s a luxury marketer to do? Perhaps luxury marketers should be more creative with their marketing tactics and more careful with the placement of their goods.

Keep in mind, exclusivity isn’t tangible, it’s more of an intrinsic quality or an idea. Luxury is about an experience, so as long as the brand provides a unique experience for the consumer, it can still stay afloat in this economic climate. It’s really a matter of defining one’s market and sticking to it. If the brand is aiming for the luxury market, it’s important to narrow the scope, and do what it takes to retain customers.

Though discounts may not be an option, diffusion lines are more popular now than ever. Some designers see diffusion lines as the end of their careers, while others see them as mass marketing opportunities. It’s all in how a brand structures its marketing initiatives and the way it reaches customers. After all, Luxury isn’t in a price tag, it’s in the feeling one gets from owning something that enhances one’s lifestyle.
