Without fail, if I go somewhere and someone asks for a business card I probably won’t have one with me.
While I recently ordered new business cards from Moo.com, they haven’t yet left the house because aside from just throwing a few in my purse I don’t have any way to carry them. (I don’t even carry a full wallet anymore, which was my old go-to.)
One of the things on my fall to-do list is finally take a few minutes to find a card case that I love and that can easily be transferred from purse to purse.
Here are a few of the contenders so far:
1. Business Card Case – $42 at Barneys New York
2. Qwerty Business Card Case – $30 at Crane & Company
3. Kate Spade Cherry Lane Card Case – $58 at Shopbop
4. Lodis Mini Card Case – $38 at Zappos.com
5. Metallic Goatskin Leather Business Card Case – $53 at Graphic Image (save 15% with code “FALLFASHION” and pay $45.05)
6. Royce Leather Framed Business Card Case – $51.99 at Kohl’s
7. Bejeweled Business Card Case – $38 at t+j Designs (save 30% with code “THANKYOU3” and pay $26.60)

Lauren Merkin is one of the first handbag brands I discovered when I started this site and it remains one of my favorites! I’ve written about them quite a bit, though I only got my first Lauren Merkin last year at the Gilt City Warehouse Sale. I got a Louise clutch that’s very similar to the one above for $80, which was too good of a deal for me to pass up as these bags typically cost $225!
If you, too, covet a Lauren Merkin – but for less – you’ll want to check out the Lauren Merkin Online Sample Sale where there’s quite a selection of Lauren Merkin handbags and clutches marked down! In fact, the Louise clutch above is the same price that I bought mine for last year – $80! The Louise Clutch is really what put Lauren Merkin on the map, and quite a few styles and colors are included in the sample sale.
This Lauren Merkin Mini Marlow in black and white calf hair is calling my name. Originally $425, it is currently marked down to $175.
The Lauren Merkin Online Sample Sale pricing is valid only through May 1, 2014.

Vintage 70s Delicate Sweater
I am smitten with this sweater. The delicateness of the details, the color, and the doily collar just make it such a classic. The flower embroidery comes in lavendar, peach, rose and mauve. LOVE.
This tunic is adorable. I am not a huge fan of tight stuff on me personally, so I tend to lean towards the tunic route. I think these colors are great, too!

Megan and Nora were kind enough to answer some questions. Enjoy!
1. What has been your most favorite vintage find?
That’s a tough one. A friend of mine was planning a surprise wedding and she asked for help finding a dress. I went gung ho and bought three vintage white dresses. Last minute, she found one herself, but I love the ones I found so much I might dye them and keep them for myself. Oh, and recently, I thrifted a pair of mint condition vintage Frye boots for $8.99. Gotta love a deal!
I have a pair of British brown riding boots that I have worn to death. I really need to replace them, but I cannot bring myself to get rid of them (or stop wearing them)!
2. For someone interested in thrifting, what advice would you give them?
There are a lot of tips. my top three would be to 1. Go often. Stores restock daily, so you have the potential to find new treasures on a daily basis. 2. Look outside the box (or your size). People oftentimes throw clothes back where they don’t belong, and vintage sizes are different than current sizes. So, looking in different sections (or in the cast-off racks outside the dressing room) opens up the fab-finding potential that much more. 3. check check check. People donate things all the time without washing, fixing or caring about the condition. So mke sure to check the item for any stains, holes or imperfections.
Megan’s answers are perfect. I might also add that it is overwhelming, so when you first start thrifting to go knowing what you want and only look in those sections. You can slowly build up to exploring the entire store.
3. What are your favorite colors?
Old vintage refrigerator colors like avocado,mustard, teal, orange and cream.
Avocado and granny smith apple greens and orange for sure.
4. Who is are your fashion icons?
past: Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren
present: Alexa Chung, Zoe Deschanel
Past: Audrey Hepburn, Francoise Hardy, Mia Farrow
Present: Alexa Chung, Kate Moss, Sienna Miller (apparently I wish I was British).
5. What is your favorite item in your shop?
The 70s open cardigan. I would have kept it myself, but it didn’t fit. I adore the colors (see #3) and the style works with pretty much any outfit!
Any and all of our boots! I am a freak for vintage riding and cowboy boots. I also adore the green floral and lace chiffon maxi dress.
Aren’t they just the cutest?! Don’t forget now through the 11th to enter the code NEWYEAR for 20% off! Happy shopping!
