LINEIJ Luxury Bespoke Handbags with Caribbean Roots

LINEIJ™ (pronounced Lineage) uses the finest leathers and exotic skins, sourced from the far reaches of South America, Asia, Türkiye and Europe, but using local villages and farms. “Preserving the balance of nature is extremely important to us,” explains founder Kipenzi Chidinma. “None of our products come from animals in the wild. The materials we use are designated food sources first.”

LINEIJ™ is certified through C.I.T.E.S., the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and is in compliance with all local, state, federal, and international regulations. A rare consideration in today’s fashion world.

Her Caribbean legacy, and the cornerstone of LINEIJ™, also sets her apart as a favourite to those in the know. It’s a much sought after influence, on the rise as a hotbed of new emerging talent. At the forefront of this ‘new wave’ is Chidinma’s highly anticipated line. This timeless, bespoke, handcrafted accessories collection – with Turks and Caicos roots and global appeal – are the direct results of her great-grandmother Lillian Delancy. After discovering some of Mrs. Delancy’s original hand drawn patterns from yesteryear, Chidinma was inspired not only by the creativity, but the detail in the design. The collection features portfolios, totes, handbags, carryalls, weekend bags, and clutches – for those with an appreciation for quality workmanship and creativity.

“My collection is for those with discerning tastes, who don’t want to sacrifice functionality, unique design, style, or sophistication” says Chidinma.

My Burberry, Fragrance Of Elegance and Prestige

my burberry
Burberry, best worn with a smile. The fragrance is an instant lift to the mood and a memory of wonderful days of luxe. Eau de Parfum, very light and woodsie with hints of fresh flowers and decadent sensuality. The scent is contemporary and fresh with notes of pure elegance, and not overly blended. It’s housed in the classic My Burberry glass bottle, whose overall design reflects the details of the Burberry trench coat. A bold horn-finish stone and black cap echoes its distinctive buttons and the hand-tied stone-coloured English-woven gabardine knot honours the fabric invented by Thomas Burberry over 100 years ago.

“The bottle is presented in a stone-coloured box with a gabardine-inspired texture, embossed with a golden knot finish. Just as with My Burberry Eau de Parfum, customers will be able to personalise their My Burberry Eau de Toilette bottle with up to three initials through a monogramming service available on and selected Burberry and wholesale stores.”

Quintessentially British and crisp with a flair of confidence, one can only imaginadoring fans with consistent compliments and flocking admiration. To wear Burberry is to exude class, modern day sophistication, wealth and prestige. My Burberry as your Burberry takes on the brand’s characteristics as your own and personifies unmatched femininity and grace. Wearing the fragrance gives one the feeling of happiness and puts the soul at ease, reminding us that all is well in the world, as long as we have our Burberry.

Humble Luxury, Timeless Class


Yeah, we call ourselves a luxury blog, but don’t consider ourselves snobs. Our pages aren’t plagued with yachts and yuppies and cache is our currency minus sleeping with the enemy. A love for philanthropy and brands with a good heart plus readers that enjoy the finer things in life sans rubbing it in ugly faces of envy.

There’s nothing wrong with having nicer things than the status-not-quo as long as you know when to give, when to receive, and how not to over zealously snub those without. There’s a humility to down-to-earth-class, that’s a breath of sweet heir. You don’t have to be in your face opulent to present yourself with a tasteful lifestyle that enhances the 9-to-5 work hard for the monaaay not long for the cash.

So, before we strip down to the bare essentials and scream for designer in our birthday/summer skinny dipping suits, let’s nail a few must haves for keeping it fresh, rather kosher without glutenous garb.

A) Birds of a Feather — Choose your friends, it’s a social scene out there, don’t surround yourself with bottom feeding social-nots. If someone is scraping the bottom of the barrel i.e. dating on twitter, weed them out.

B) Cherry pick your luxury must haves — Don’t ever be the chick with logos and monograms from head to toe, it screams walking the street by night, shopping the mall by day.

C) If you’re into luxury, don’t broadcast it — materialism is a turn off, a magnet for the nouveau riche, floss your teeth, not your riches…for he comes back life a thief in the night, and you may get robbed.

D) Stewardship — know what to invest in: guns, butter and dare I say economics. A penny saved is a penny earned, every penny spent must be spent wisely because after all, we don’t live in a world of unlimited resources and every fashion girl is constantly remind of the opportunity cost of an outfit worn today, can’t be worn tomorrow.

E) Prepare for the future — fashion is constantly changing, what you loved yesterday is old news today and what you love tomorrow will predicate your style in the future. When sampling a signature look, your wardrobe will evolve but don’t pile up clothes with tags, if you can’t wear it now…there will be something later that you will love, so try not to keep tags on your clothes, buy for now…spend for what you need in the future, then…the only thing worse than a clothes whore is a clothes hoard…

Last but not least: Despite your luxurious endeavors, don’t hoard, don’t whore, and certainly don’t flaunt what you have not. The best luxury companion is a staple handbag and a pup in style, love the finer things without selling your soul, down to earth class is modern day pizzazz so, flaunt your stuff to your friends, don’t show your ass in public, and the booty shorts you’ve been eyeing for summer that you’ve hung onto since your teens, get that bikini wax for the pool and think at least thrice, press 100 at the gym and save it (all) for St. Tropez.

Le Mystère And The Bra Fit Revolution


Online intimates boutique Le Mystère, most well-known for its handcrafted size-inclusive lingerie and as one of the driving forces behind the modern bra fit revolution, has three bras worth considering for your spring wardrobe.

They’ve done women right for the sensual spring season: providing a comfortably casual daywear option — Linguine Bra — for your lightweight and light-hearted pre-summer fashion ensembles, and two sexier varieties — Sensuelle Bustier and Lace Temptation — for dusting off the winter blahs and spicing up your wardrobe. The Linguine is a seamless and moulded solid color full coverage bra with fun double straps; the Sensuelle Bustier is a classic fit, satin and microfiber item with memory foam support; and Lace Temptation is a semi-rigid, underwire bra with petite scalloping edge lace.

The new bras might be fresh in terms of style, but they are still the same high-tech comfy products we’ve come to know from years of repeat appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Le Mystère’s pop culture prominence as the bra brand to beat is mostly thanks to Oprah’s loud spoken love for their Dream Tisha Bra, which she declared to be the best t-shirt bra of all time back in 2003 — we all know that Oprah’s word is as good as law.

Whether or not you subscribe to that “fact” doesn’t alter the game changing truth Oprah was busy preaching: our culture needed a bra intervention and Le Mystère was stepping up to the plate to bring it. The company’s 24-year influence on women’s intimates is undeniable; from the very beginning the  company has been striving to meld comfort and fashion. So, they mastered the art of design aesthetic — the crux where function and style meet — and then set out to storm the marching ranks of women in poor-fitting bras with their manifesto to transform women’s lives through négligée, Fit Revolution!

In all seriousness, bra fitting is very important for your mammaries, minor or major, so get it done before strapping on your next tit-sling.

Eco-Friendly Agriculture Meets Luxury At Truvée Wines

There’s a brand new pair of wines coming out of California’s Central Coast this season (isn’t there always), but there’s something special about the company producing the new lightly oaked Chardonnay and Grenache-based Red Bland. The McBride sisters are best known as the first African-American women to found a wine company, which started with their New Zealand Wines. They are a double whammy duo: two prominent agri-business women making headlines in the male-dominated wine industry, who are also strong promoters of sustainable agricultural practices. Their new line, called Truvée, brings the sisters back to their west coast American roots.

Micro-breweries are old news; everyone’s heard of and probably drank at least one beer from a microbrewery somewhere on the North American continent. So after all that live-eat-shop-local let’s-change-the-world hype, what could possibly be new in the world of alcohol that speaks to the evolving social importance placed on sustainable agricultural practices? Well, eco-friendly wines grown through sustainable viticulture, of course.

Every day we come face to face with our growing need to implement sustainable agricultural practices in the farming industry, if we are to continuing meeting the demands of our booming global population and protect (or reverse) our deteriorating natural environment. Every step towards social responsibility in agriculture and industry impacts everyone for the better, from the world’s hungriest impoverished communities to the wealthiest. Imagine a future when luxury and environmental consciousness do not have to be in conflict, where feeding the world and protecting the Earth do not have to be in conflict; it’s not as far away or as impossible as it may sound.

Sometimes it’s as simple as realizing that yellow jackets don’t have to be the terrible enemy backyard BBQers make them out to be. Sometimes it’s as simple as employing trained falcons to tackle pest problems instead of spraying vineyards with ecologically unfriendly chemicals. Years of experience in two widely varying geographic wine regions (Monterey, California and Marlborough, New Zealand) has given the McBride sisters a lifetime of knowledge and experience in the wine industry to help them on their joint journey towards sustainability.

The Truvée wines are being marketed as affordable and accessible luxury for contemporary wine drinkers. The line is a true blend of old world and new world winemaking philosophies from the sisters’ disparate but similar upbringings in geographically distinct vineyards. Each grape was personally selected by the sisters, who are functioning as subsidiaries under Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines, from vineyards in San Benito, Monterey, Edna Valley and Paso Robles.

Robin and Andréa McBride aren’t operating under any delusions; they know their wines aren’t going to help feed the hungry or prevent deforestation, but their seemingly small, yet extremely important emphasis on eco-friendly farming efforts make a positive impact on their local environment. As women with an agricultural background they are bringing a refreshing outlook to the wine industry — breaking molds left and right. If all farmers strive to make a small positive impact on their land, that is many steps in the right direction.

Truvée is available across the country and if you are in New York you can find Truvée wines at The Brandy Library, Copacabana, Viva (Brooklyn), Sofrito, B-Hive Lounge (Brooklyn), Blend (Long Island City), Sao, Dream Downtown (Hotel), Moo Burger (Brooklyn), Percy’s Public House, The Griffin, GoldBar, Wine Gallery, Soho Wines and Sag Harbor Liquor.
