Flyin' Out the Door

Whenever there is an item in the store that sells quickly and is hard to keep in stock Jeanne says things like "Those shoes are flyin' out the door" or "Her jewelry is flyin' off the shelf" or "We can't keep that in stock, huh". Also Jeanne was born and raised in Philly so shes got a little of that Philly accent going on. Just a little.

Anyway, here are some hot ticket items that have been flyin' out the door! Many have already made an appearance on this here blog!

Penelope and Anastasia Jewelry

As you know yesterday was an exciting day for us. One of the reasons it was so good is because we picked up a new LOCAL jewelry line called Penelope and Anastasia! We love working with local jewelry designers. We get tons of tourists in the warmer months and they are always looking to take a little bit of Philly back home with them.

We met Pamela of Penelope and Anastasia through facebook, yay for social networking! We immediately fell in love with her button earrings. I mean really, can you even stand how adorable they are?

Her line is way more extensive than her button earrings and necklaces so come check them out!

Scarves Galore!

Yesterday was a awesome day at J.Karma. We picked up a brand new jewelry line (more details to come!), we received new handbags from the Hilary Radley and KGB Studio Collections which are also two brand new lines for us this season, and we stocked up on tons of new scarves! I have mentioned before how much all of us here at J.Karma love to layer. With warmer weather comes lighter layers! These light weight scarves are bold, colorful, and fun! They also range from $18-$26, so when you can't decide which one you like the most you won't feel guilty treating yourself to more than one :) Here are some of our favorites..

Like always, there is more where that came from...
XOXO J.Karma

In the News..

While flipping through our March issue of Lucky Magazine we spotted another Melie Bianco favorite! We weren't kidding when we said Melie Bianco Handbags were getting A LOT of attention this season! This is the "Heidi" clutch which could easily be YOUR go-to clutch all Spring/Summer long. We love the texture, we love the bow, we love the neutral color, for Gods sake we just love you Melie Bianco!

Here it is ladies. Press the link, you know you want to.

Something Green..

Yesterday was the Philadelphia St. Patrick's Day Parade! It was so much fun! Everyone and I mean EVERYONE was in their Irish Green. I couldn't help but take note of what people were wearing. For the most part I think people put on every piece of green clothing they own, spray paint their hair/eyebrows green (yes eyebrows, grown men), and put on the funkiest socks they have! The parade goers were looking pretty crazy but these "get ups" have NOTHING on the Mummers Parade. The Mummers are on a whole other level. You know what I mean, right Philly?

Anyway, I on the other hand was decked out in sequins. They weren't green sequins but I felt very festive non the less. So maybe the point of the getting dressed for such festivities is to be obnoxious but here are a few options that are a little more conservative and shall I say stylish. Need a splash of green for your St. Patty's Day celebrations? Let us help!

1. Melie Bianco - "Irene" - $56
2. Peacock Cuff - $19
3. Big Buddha Shoes - "Fine" - $62
4. OlliPop - Jadeite & Jet Ring - $42

Rainy Days at J.Karma..

Today is just a rainy gloomy day. One of those days you want to curl up on the couch, pop in a 'I Love Lucy' DVD, and sip on something warm. OK, maybe your ideal rainy day is slightly different but you understand what I'm getting at here. It's just one of those days.

It's a little quieter than normal here is Old City, minus the groups of middle school age kids on their field trips to our little historic part of the city. Affectionately sharing umbrellas, boys splashing in puddles purposely trying to get the girls wet, the girls giggling and screaming. You get the idea. Young love.

Anyway, here are a few rainy day photos from around the store. Enjoy and stay dry folks!

There is good news! I had to wait a little longer for my coffee at Starbucks this morning so they gave me a coupon for a free beverage of my choice! How nice! I think I'm going to get a venti mocha with an extra shot of espresso, extra chocolate, and extra extra whipped cream. HA!

Sike. I'll prob get the usual. A tall coffee, little half and half, 1 packet of sugar in the raw.
Now that you know what I drink feel free to bring me one whenever your little hearts desire.
Sike again.

My Longest Handbag Relationship.

I work at a boutique. A boutique that sells handbags. I blame this for my sick obsession with them (and shoes, but  thats a separate post all together). I can't get enough. I see one, I love it, I get it. It's as simple as that folks. With that being said, I tend to switch them up depending on what I'm wearing, the color of my jacket, where I'm going, what I'm doing, and the list goes on and on. After writing the last post I realized that the bag I'm currently carrying (pictured) has now been with me for 3 years in all of it's fringe glory. After making this realization I picked up the bag and and took note on it's condition. On a scale from 1 to 10 this bag is STILL a strong 9! There is NOTHING wrong with this bag. When a customer begins to question the quality of a vegan handbag I pull out old faithful and give them "our" story. The top part of my bag is a tad worn, as you can see in the picture, and this is the ONLY reason you may be able to tell it's age (I bet not a single one of you would have said 3 years old though... just sayin'). When I say a tad, I mean you have to look closely to see the imperfections. The lining is still in tip top shape minus a make-up stain or two, but that happens to the best of us ;)! The zippers and inside pockets are functioning as well as the day I bought it! You  might just say that I love this bag. Can you blame me? Check out the condition it's in!

I should also tell you that I'm not very good at taking care of my things. This bag has been through hell and back. It's a trooper.

In the News..

Melie Bianco Handbags have been getting A LOT of attention these days. I have to be honest, Melie Bianco's handbags are my favorite. I have TONS of handbags. A mixture of labels but I seem to always gravitate towards my Melie Bianco bags. Today I am carrying a Melie Bianco bag I bought 3 years ago! The quality is A-MAZING!

Lately I have been seeing a lot of MB bags while flipping through magazines and I wanted to share these with you! Enjoy!
