Orange you glad it's 2012?


A great way to add some intrigue and style to your daily look is with an unexpected pop of color on your person. Try using a bright colored wallet or duffle to liven up your look. Try a folio from ernest alexander, it is large enough for a legal pad or some light reading and most importantly your ipad. Adding color to your accessories is a sure way to punch some of your personality into your day to day look. The bonus to adding an unexpected piece to your repetoire: it may help you strike up a conversation with a co-worker, that Barista at Starbucks, or perhaps a ‘new’ friend?

Truth is real picnics are a awkward mess of soggy sandwiches, sodden grass and Pinot stains. But you can give your next lakeside nosh a much needed shot of elegance with Dunhill’s Chassis Picnic Hamper.
