My family knows me well; for my birthday last month they got me a graphic novel about Jack the Ripper, the American film adaption of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and lots of Lady Gaga-inspired merchandise. Earlier this year, Barney’s New York carried Lady Gaga products for an event called “Gaga’s Workshop.” Now, these products (everything from magnetic Gaga dress-up dolls to pocket mirrors to Christmas ornaments) can be found at Barney’s Outlet stores. So for those of you interested in Gaga keychains and notebooks but patient enough to wait this long, you can now purchase these items for a much more reasonable price than when they debuted at Barney’s. Thanks to my mom (who fuels my love for all things cheap and chic), I am now the proud owner of yellow Gaga sunglasses that make me feel like the yellow power ranger and, my favorite, this Gaga’s Workshop tote bag:
I love the design and while the bag is really basic (no zipper, no inside pockets), it has been functioning as a perfect beach/pool bag and will definitely be accompanying me to Cape Cod this summer.
