Structured vs Non-Structured

We all probably have certain criteria or guide to wade through the enormous variety of bag choices we have today.

  • Structured vs non-structured
  • Bold color vs pastel color
  • Spacious vs compact
  • Design vs practicality
  • Luxury vs affordability

and this list goes on…

At Veira, we have always been drawn to the structured silhouettes and inclined to design for bags with certain shapes for some known and unknown reasons. Perhaps it is time we look at slouchy bags for creative inspirations.

Well, ever thought thoroughly – what’s your criteria?

Shopping Tips in NYC

I was just doing some quick research on shopping & dining for our upcoming trip to New York this Saturday and totally LOL at this:

If you’ve yet to master the art of shopping in NYC, you’ll want to prepare for your trip to Century 21 by reading NYCTourist’s list of NYC shopping tips, the Guerilla Shopping Guide:

  • Shop at Odd Hours: With such great deals on designer clothes, Century 21 is a madhouse on weekends. Try to visit the store at off hours – on a weekday morning, for example, or in bad weather. The store will be tranquil by comparison.
  • Shop Hard: When you shop at Century 21 NYC, you have to dig to find those deals. Look in shoeboxes that aren’t your size. Open ugly shoeboxes to find the cute pair of shoes another shopper has stashed away on her lunch break. Check the racks in the dressing room for adorable discards. Shop hard!
  • Dress Smart: If you plan on trying on clothes at Century 21 NY, dress appropriately. Wear something that you can change out of easily, or otherwise wear tights and a tank top so you can try on clothes on the floor, without fighting the dressing rooms.
  • Stay Positive: Perhaps the best advice on shopping in NYC is this: don’t get discouraged. It’s easy to be intimidated by the massive size of Century 21 and the aggressive shoppers who flock there. Stay positive. Remember you’re taking advantage of outrageous deals.

Now, now I am not really sure that sounds all so fun to shop at NYC anymore. I will try to stay motivated & positive 🙂
