Victoria Beckham Wore One of the World’s Most Expensive Bags

Published

on

In the noughties Victoria Beckham was rarely photographed without a Birkin bag on her arm, as she is estimated to have a collection of over 100 which is reported to be worth over £1.5million. They were a key part of the ‘brand Beckham’ image in 2008, along with Cavalli gowns, platform Christian Louboutin stilettos and hair extensions. Over the past few years you rarely see Victoria wearing anything that isn’t from her own label, however this week VB wore one of her Birkin bags for a trip to Paris. She boarded a Eurostar in London with her purple Ostrich skin Birkin and paired it with matching violet suede heels—it was a VB styling trick in the noughties to match her Birkin to her stilettos.

The Hermès Birkin is still one of the most difficult bags to get your hands on because of overwhelming demand, and luxury resale companies like Vestiare Collective and Xupes assert that the Hermès Birkin bag typically retains around 130% of its retail value at resale. As Vestiare co-founder Fanny Moizant explained, “Anything that is hard to get is highly coveted, and there’s a mystery around the bags, which makes them even more sought-after.” A similar purple Birkin to Victoria’s was recently sold in a Christie’s auction for £10,600.

Amazing High-Street Pieces We Want to Buy This Month

Published

on

The team at Who What Wear UK prides themselves on uncovering cult items before they’ve barely even made it to the production line. We’re keen, to say the least, and a great portion of our time is spent documenting and analysing the Instagram posts of the thousands of cool women we follow on Instagram for high-street sightings. In fact, we have Whatsapp groups and Slack channels dedicated to these affordably priced power pieces, and we want to update you on them as soon as is humanly possible (aka after we’ve bought our faves) each and every week.

Our skills are so attuned that more often than not, we’ll have an inkling over a certain piece before it has hit the big time on social media. Sometimes, you’ll find a flurry of brand-specific action due to a paid activation or natural desire to wear a particular thing or label. But other times, it’ll be a slow and steady accumulation of saved posts that start to make a trend clear to me—especially when a vast array of influencers start favouring the very same items over a longer period of time. Either way, please trust that we’re on it.

Right now, there are some beautiful new-in winter items making a strong bid for inclusion in this gallery. From a pair of Mango boots that are set to spike to a & Other Stories party dress that looks way beyond its high-street price tag, keep reading to see my picks of influencers wearing the latest high-street items.

Reitmans sales fall in Q3 as plus-size banners disappoint

Published

on

Reitmans announced on Thursday third-quarter results that missed company expectations, primarily due to the disappointing financial performance of its plus-size banners.

The Canadian fashion group, and owner of brands Addition Elle and Thyme Maternity, said sales for the third quarter 2020 dropped to $222.3 million, as compared with $239.7 million reported during the same period last year. 
 
Even e-commerce sales, which continues to see strong growth, were not enough to drive momentum in comparable sales. Instead, comparable sales decreased 2.8 percent, primarily due to store traffic being down 0.7 percent, and customers’ overall transaction value being down 5.9 percent for the quarter ended November 2, 2019. 

The company reported its net loss was $23.1 million ($0.47 basic and diluted loss per share), as compared with $8.9 million net earnings ($0.14 basic and diluted earnings per share) for the third quarter last year. 

Reitmans attributed the earnings loss to lower sales, a decrease in gross profit, and a goodwill impairment expense of $11.8 million, as well as an increase in net finance costs.
 
Following an unimpressive first and second quarter, net loss year-to-date was $35.8 million ($0.61 basic and diluted loss per share), as compared with $15.7 million net earnings ($0.25 basic and diluted earnings per share).
 
Strategic brand changes were implemented at the beginning of the fiscal year to reposition the company’s Addition Elle and Penningtons banners, but the changes have failed to resonate with the banners’ customer base. 
 
Looking ahead, the company said “corrective measures, including new leadership of the plus-size banners, were implemented late in the third quarter of 2020 to refocus and reposition the Addition Elle and Penningtons banners, and have yet to have an impact on the operating results.” 
 
Reitmans currently operates 587 stores consisting of 260 Reitmans, 112 Penningtons, 79 Addition Elle, 81 RW & CO. and 55 Thyme Maternity.

Khloé Kardashian Posts Epic Message To Tristan & Jordyn On Instagram!

Published

on

Khloé Kardashian wants everyone to know she’s through thinking about the drama with Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods!

And to prove it she wrote an extremely lengthy rant about how much she doesn’t care on her Instagram Story on Thursday!

The Good American founder was apparently responding to backlash about the most recent episode of KUWTK because she cares so little she has to read all the comments.

She began the epic diatribe:

“I’m seeing a lot of commentary about last week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. As much as I hate speaking on all of this because I’m sure everybody is over it, as am I, but I’m frustrated that people try to create something that’s really not there.”

What she wants you to know? She’s on that high road, y’all!

“I don’t hold any negative or hateful feelings towards ANYONE! I mean that. Life is short! We are all humans trying to figure out this thing called life. Who am I to condemn anyone else? Yes, I’m allowed to feel hurt and pain. It would be unnatural for me to pretend as if I don’t. Personally, I don’t want to be carrying around a hateful heart. I crave peace in my life. Me holding onto hate is only going to hurt me in the end.”

Isn’t it clear she’s already let all this go? Here’s another paragraph about how she’s not thinking about it anymore…

“I have chosen to NOT pollute my heart and my energy by holding onto anything negative. I am allowed to forgive. Forgiveness is a strength and not a weakness. I am allowed to forgive people but still not accept their behaviors. I’m also allowed to protect my space. I am allowed to choose who I want in my life and who I do not. I’m also allowed to wish people well and sincerely mean it. Doesn’t mean I have to be their best friend.”

Yeah… no one thought Khloé and Jordyn were ever going to be best friends…

“I want nothing but beautiful blessings for EVERYBODY that has ever been in my life. Regardless of what they have done or not done to me. I want people to be kinder in this world. We are all here to live and experience life. Therefore we may make mistakes along the way and if we are lucky we will grow from every mistake we make. If we are blessed enough, we get to grow to be incredibly kind and beautiful people. I wish that for everybody in the world. I want peace and happiness for ALL! Ive given it to God.”

She concluded:

“I have been working on me from the inside out. I crave peace and happiness in this new year and forever after.”

And then it was all out of her system, and… nope, she posted again just a few hours later, explaining exactly who the previous post was for.

She wrote:

“The reason why I decided to post my previous post is because I’m seeing a lot of back-and-forth with people asking ‘why don’t I keep that same energy with Jordyn?’”

That message is for Jordyn. It’s for anyone else who has ever hurt me. For some reason people want to assume that I’m talking only about Tristan.

This message applies to ALL parties involved in situations that have ever hurt me. Men, friends, family, work associates… anyone who played a role in my pain. I have moved on, found forgiveness and wish you only happiness and joy!”

So much for Cryptic Khloé!

In her last bit of talk on moving on, she wrote:

“My life won’t be consumed with hate. I’ve chosen to occupy my life with positivity.”

She ended with:

“We are all human and make mistakes, myself included. Hate is heavy and I am tired of carrying all of that weight around.”

And now she’s finally free of the drama!

Well, maybe check back in a couple hours just to be safe…
