Dec 14th 2008 7:27PM I'm not surprised to see a fractional jet program on this list, although a gift card to one would make an amazingly generous gift (these ones are rated more highly if anyone is seriously considering it :) - http://3luxe.com/category/Aviation/Fractional_Jet_Ownership). That suitcase is also pretty extravagant - I previously thought Hermes was the pinnacle of luxury when it came to high end luggage, but I suppose the bar is always being raised.
Nov 25th 2008 9:26PM I think this watch might beat out 3Luxe's top three sport watches (although they are all spectactular - check them here: http://3luxe.com/category/Fashion_Accessories/Sport_Watches) because it has a certain elegance that most sport watches lack. It manages to be both graceful and utilitarian simultaneously, which is an impressive design feat well worth the accolades.
Nov 22nd 2008 5:14PM My brother lives in Honolulu and hasn't reported a decrease in tourists, although I have noticed that the cost of flights to the islands is dropping. I'm hoping that some of the amazing luxury places like the Halekulani (check it out: http://3luxe.com/best_ofs/Beach_Vacations/Halekulani) will soon become a little more affordable.
Nov 22nd 2008 5:02PM Don't forget about Aftelier perfumes - creator Mandy Aftel has crafted custom all-natural fragrances for many celebrities and perfume connisseurs, and her Cognac fragrance was selected as a 3Luxe pick (http://3luxe.com/best_ofs/Women's_Fragrance/Aftelier_Perfumes_Cognac)
Here's a link to her site: http://www.aftelier.com/home.html
May 21st 2008 11:15PM Ooh, pick me! I'll even review the book on my own blog.
Apr 13th 2008 11:16PM That's too bad, but does anyone really go to Vegas for the art? I would think that the exhibits/works would be better served in another destination, perhaps one that isn't famous for gambling and over-indulgence.
Apr 13th 2008 11:14PM That does seem kind of steep for a stroller, but you do have to remember that it will be carrying some pretty precious cargo! And compared to some high-end strollers, the $700 or so for the Mutsy is a steal; for instance, the Balmoral stroller goes for almost $3000. Of course, it is amazing - and along with the Bugaboo Frog and the Inglesina Zippy strollers, it made the 3Luxe top three: http://www.3luxe.com/category/Getting_Around/Strollers .
And by the way - the Zippy is only $340, which isn't that bad for a luxe stroller.
Apr 13th 2008 7:37PM It depends on the situation - in a trendy place with a popular bar, a reasonable noise is fine (provided it's not all cell phone conversations - some of my favorite places have banned cell phones and I'm a huge fan of that) and I kind of expect it.
Apr 8th 2008 6:42PM Once you find a great carry-on bag (here's a few high-end suggestions: http://www.3luxe.com/category/Luggage/Carry-On) packing and traveling light become so easy - you'll never go back to checked luggage again! For short trips, anyways.
I've used the rolling method shown for a few trips, including a several week backpacking trip - and everything stayed fairly wrinkle-free! It probably helped that I hung up things when I could, but overall that system is solid.
Apr 7th 2008 8:44PM This is my zip code! My apartment could probably fit into one room of that one though (although I think mine is much cozier).
