Christmas Funnies

December 17, 2013

Watch this hilarious clip of Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner trying to get people in NYC to sing Christmas carols with them. Their tactics might be a little pushy but it makes for a hilarious bit. What do you think- should we recreate with Mr. Matthew Sova running around downtown GR?

Word of Advice: Skip the Mall

December 20, 2012

I just got back from the mall. It was awful. I’ve been avoiding the mall this entire Holiday season. Crowds freak me out, everyone walks slow, all the people are in their winter jackets so it’s extra warm and weird. Realizing there really wasn’t anywhere else I could get an iPhone charger, I begrudgingly went and it was terrible. So much so that it inspired me to write this post, encouraging you to avoid it and instead come to… A.K. Rikk’s!

You probably just rolled your eyes and thought to yourself, “of course she would say that!” but hear me out. Many people are mistaken in that they think all we have here at A.K. Rikk’s is clothing, but we truly have so much more. We have tons of great books, perfumes, candles, candle holders, decanters, throws, pillows, frames, bar accessories, to name a few smaller gift options. Now with our lifestyle section, we also have a wide selection of furniture.

So there you have it, a nice, calm, welcoming place to get your holiday gifts where you don’t have to park a million miles away from the entrance, where you can set your jacket down while you shop, maybe drink a glass of wine, and maintain your personal space.

A DVF Fairy Tale

December 15, 2012

Diane von Furstenberg does things differently and that’s what I most appreciate about her. Having revolutionized the way women dress not just once in the 1970s but also in the 1990s, DVF is an incredible role model for young fashionistas everywhere.

Although she is busy being a world-philanthropist, author, CFDA president, and designer, DVF some how managed to collaborate with British author Camilla Morton on a fashion-fairytale called¬†Diane von Furstenberg and the Tale of the Empress’s New Clothes. Always doing things differently, DVF and Morton decided to begin the story with a twist: “The Empress’s New Clothes¬†turns an old story on its head, and as someone whose personal fairy tale started with marrying a prince instead of ending there, I can certainly identify with that. And really, it’s a story about giving women confidence, which is what I have always tried to do in my work,” says DVF.

The most unique quality about the story is that DVF uses her own clothing patterns and designs in the book’s illustrations. This is definitely a little gift that would fit snug in someone’s stocking. Young or old, this story appeals to everyone with its innovative and new storyline and its uncommon yet exceptional illustrations. You can find the book online and at select bookstores.

And you know what would go well with this little gift? How about a DVF dress from A.K. Rikk’s… or perhaps a little DVF snow hat… or maybe an entire DVF outfit? That’s more like it. We have several wrap dresses from her new 1974 line as well as a variety of blouses, shoes, skirts, accessories, and much more!
