Admin / Tech / Ads

Hi guys – I saw some of the reader complaints re: audio ads late yesterday; my apologies to everyone for the audio interruption.  The people who manage the ads on this site are all under strict instructions to never let audio ads in  (and, my goodness, certainly not ads for things like KY jelly, whether audio or not).  Sometimes ads slip past our filters (which makes me like the advertising companies even less, but that’s me).  In order to stop these ads I need two pieces of information:

Coffee Break: Fulton Moccasin

Kors Fulton MoccasinCommenters were recommending this flat the other day, and I really like the look of its clean, neat lines. Zappos has it in a ton of fun colors right now, but Amazon has some nice deals on basic colors like this “luggage” leather (also in black leather and black suede). It was $99, but is marked to $79 (select sizes and colors only, alas). Kors Michael Kors Fulton Moccasin

Coffee Break: Bethe Rope Necklace

noonday Longtime reader/ mid-level associate R wrote in to recommend this necklace a few weeks ago:

The necklace was a Christmas present this year, and promises to become my new favorite opera-length accent piece. (Today I’m wearing it with a cream silk blouse and gold studs.) According to the website, the entire collection is made by artisans in the developing world, and the organization is committed to providing fair wages and safe working environments. Some of the pieces have a more casual/ bohemian feel, but a fair number are entirely work-appropriate for my (business casual) office.

Nice! I always love the versatility of an opera-length necklace, and I like the simplicity of this one.  (I’m particularly a fan of the look at top right, layered with a long pendant necklace).  The necklace is $40. Bethe Rope Necklace

Tech Problems

I know we’re having tech problems but I’m lacking information — is it mobile only? Can you identify which ad (or which ad spot)? Anyone who can send me screenshots and more information will win my undying affection. (I know of two potentially separate problems: Vindicosuite.com and a redirection to some app/game…. please fill me in if there are others.) Thank you all for your patience!

Deal Alert: ShopBop’s Friends & Family Sale

FYI – ShopBop’s Friends and Family sale has just started, with 25% off sitewide with code FAMILY25.  ShopBop is home to a ton of great brands, and the editor’s picks are usually SPOT on in terms of what’s trendy, interesting, and now — their jewelry collection is also drool worthy.  There are also a ton of great basics, though — so I’ve rounded up a few pieces that are classics that have been around forever (and probably will be).  It’s also nice that they offer free 3-day shipping (although you can use your Amazon Prime membership for faster shipping), and, as always, free returns. Readers, what are you eyeing for the ShopBop sale?  If you had $1K to spend, what would you buy?
