Most Wanted: A Peek at This Week’s Boutiques


From the perfect deco bookends to bringing a Facebook mobile upload to life, here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

Clockwise, from top left:

V&M bookends. I can’t even imagine the overwhelming joy these collectors must have experienced upon finding two such deliciously deco bookends. Nor can I imagine the sweet sorrow that was parting with them. But, rest assured – they’re coming to a good home (er, miniature apartment). I promise.  Our V&M Art Deco Boutique opens Wednesday, October 17, at 11AM ET.

Cole Haan cape. Not only is this cape the perfect length for some good old-fashioned upper-thigh hiding, but its trim – yep, that most certainly is leather – has the “mixed-media” trend box checked for the season. Our Go-Everywhere Coats: Capes, Down Jackets, & More Boutique opens Tuesday, October 16, at 11AM ET.

Longchamp shopper. It’s long been known that these French totes are, well, the perfect totes. Not only do their stitched leather straps stay put on your shoulder, but they can carry huge amounts of work stuff and gym stuff, all at once. (Don’t ask me how.) Our Longchamp Boutique opens Sunday, October 14, at 11AM ET.

CanvasPop photo. Now, this is a cool concept. This company is willing to print my beloved (and, I’ll admit, filtered-to-flatter) iPhone® photos onto a piece of canvas AND stretch it around a frame. Those off-the-cuff mobile uploads? Hanging on the wall, they’re about to look a whole lot more legitimate. Our CanvasPop Boutique opens Tuesday, October 16, at 11AM ET.
