to be or not to be on that list

It's rough these days, you don't need me to tell you that. It's to buy or not to buy. But in any case, I always thought it's a good thing to be on the list, good times or bad. When you go to a night club, being on the list is a treat, sometimes it's a must to get in to party, "hey"! To be on Schindler's List would have been a great thing, which would have most likely saved your life!

Yeah, lists rock, but recently I have been on a list that I was not sure to be pleased to be on, right? I mean, can you imagine to be (or rather have your merchandise be) on a list of things that will not be bought? Ever heard of that one?! Well, let me tell you, I have been on a list like that and I was like: "What tha heck?!"

So this girl named Lexi put up this blog site "Not Buying" where she lists all things she desperately wants but will not get. Yooh, that's a first for me!

It's a sign of the time guys, so even though I don't want to be on that list, I kinda think it's great to be on it at the same time :) I mean - come on - Lexi adores the Beatles Hippie Tunic, and if the economy would be as usual, she'd have purchased it, right? So it's cool! "Yes, I want to be on that list!" The question is: "To buy or not to buy..."

Lexi told me in private she still might buy it... ;-)

I do the same: I do not buy right now... I am on the look out for really specific things though... I do like your Beatles tunic, I saw it in your shop and it is at the top of my list for things to buy... I just wanted to say that I am only buying very nice things.

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
