Barney’s goes Gaga (For a Lower Price)

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.

End of the School Year Update: Looking Forward

Hello everyone, and happy summer! I thought I’d give you a little end of the school year update on what’s to come on What Would Lucy Wear.

On Friday I finished packing up and returned home to Massachusetts. I currently have my hands full moving back in and making the belongings that took up two rooms all year fit in one. (Time to clean out my closet…the one at school was gloriously large, but it’s time to readapt to my closet at home.) However, I hope to post a bit this summer. Obviously, these posts won’t be about Skidmore happenings, but I’ll still find some things to write about, I’m sure. I hope to visit the Prada exhibit at the MET at some point and will write up a review of that. Basically anything fashion-related is going to be fair game this summer so we’ll still have fresh content.

Looking forward, I won’t be back on campus next semester, as I’ll be studying in Paris! I was recently accepted to the Paris Fall Seminar program so I’ll be heading to France in late August to study films, graphic novels, and of course, French. While abroad, I’ll try to continue posting (the resident director already mentioned something about getting me into a fashion show?!) and we’ll see about having someone back at Skidmore posting, too. We could have a transatlantic blog for a semester!
