  1. Please...no. It looks like a teen girl's DIY-gone-wrong project.

    1. I think that's being a little harsh... compared to this:

      http://www.filofax.co.uk/store/organiserdetails.asp?rangeId=186&sizeId=13&dsizeId=13&spId=1379#1379

      It's true A5, big rings too, durable and unique... and at a fraction of the price.

  4. All it needs is some transparent platform shoes dangling off, like a charm...

    Think I'll pass on that model, thanks!

    1. I think there's a Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band influence in there somewhere. May be the album was playing in the background in the design studio at the time... will we ever know...

  5. I imagine that the designer has her core audience in mind, realizing that a strong design choice will not be for everyone. Perhaps it will introduce some of her fans to paper planners who might not have considered them before.

  6. Leaving aside personal taste here, I would respectfully question this bit: "Tracy Lannigan is committed to preserving the environment and this binder is supplied by City Organiser without a box."

    My reasons being:

    1. as a limited edition item, it's likely that not having a box would make resale harder - and reselling things is basically an environment friendly act, since it means the person who no longer wants it doesn't just commit it to a landfill, and the person wanting a new binder gets to buy something that isn't using up more resources;

    2. boxes make the best storage for a binder that's been put aside for a while, no box might mean binders get damaged and thrown away;

    3. boxes made of carboard are recyclable and also come from renewable resources, wood & rag: alternative storage like bubble-wrap, plastic etc are taken from finite amounts of petroleum-based products and are often harder to recycle.

    Just my take on that issue.

    1. If you read it, it says "a riff of the A5 Domino". Domnino's don't come in a box. Just saying

    2. Fair enough: still think it's a shame, because joke or not there are going to be a handful of people who would kill for this, one of my former colleagues had to have EVERYTHING in leopard print!

    3. Yes this was a joke but the Tracyley is real and is for sale. It is a one off design

  8. Sorry to have to point this out to people, but I want to cut short any more misunderstandings. This is Tracey's version of the Temperley Filofaxes (thus the Traceyley name). Her design is similar, but much more economical and focuses on being whimsical and fun rather than uber-designerey. And as icclewu correctly pointed out, this Filofax was created from a Domino which does not come in a box. The whole "environment" bit was just a fun way to say it doesn't come with a box. It's all meant to be tongue-in-cheek!

    Personally I think the design is gorgeous and lots of fun!

    2. Couldn't agree with you more.

      Also, the Tracyley may be a tongue-in-cheek take on the Temperley, but I actually have more respect for its designer, knowing that she created this while being wicked busy as a supermom/wife AND finishing up her dissertation.

      Create away, Tracy!

  11. Oh dear - dare i say i could of done it better myself!
    Sorry i know it is tailored to a certain age/market but dear good grief it looks....truly horrid - far too much going on for me!
    All she has done is bought a Domino and stuck bits on it - maybe i should bring out a line with less....fluff!

    1. It isn't tailored to any age or market. As same on previous comments it's a joke. Yes it is a domino as stated. It is a whacky version of the temperleys nothing more. It wasn't meant to beautiful, just everything in one.

      Delete
    2. Ah another one has missed the point. Oh well. Long live the Tracyley! I hope the designer comes out with more of these!!

    3. A joke? Well fair enough i don't get it lol
      Its hideous and the Temperley is at least pretty!

  12. heh heh awesome! i wish it had more of a sophisticated bedazzling decor to it, however. a nice big fat bedazzled skull and crossbones would be perfect! and well, shoot, does it come in other colours? like BLACK for instance???

    great sense of humour - would LOVE to go to a ff meet-up with y'all some day. FUN. city organizer rocks. i've been REALLY out of it lately but nice to have these chuckles and cin cin to you tracey - an especially awesome job in garnering all these responses! you've moved so many people with the traceley! i'm gonna have to make me a snarly - i'm sure i'll have ZERO responses for that one heh heh

    4. "a nice big fat bedazzled skull and crossbones would be perfect!"

      I.. erm... would actually be tempted to buy something like that... {blushes}

      Any chance of an Alexander McQueen/Damian Hirst knock-off there?! :o)

    5. ME TOO!!!

      heh heh stay tuned for the SNARLEY - - -

      COMPLETELY inspired by the TRACELEY

      temper-who??? heh heh

  13. Just think if the Tracyley was on Ebay, the bids would be rocketing up... but instead it could be yours for £99.... or less if you use the philofaxy10 promo code!! Heaven forbid have I just devalued the Tracyley.....

  14. I just can't stop laughing after reading those comments :o) Tracy, great idea...well done. I love this kind of humor.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What amuses me most is that despite the vituperative comments above, this STILL got a much more positive reception on Philofaxy that the Temperleys. Plus, it actually works well as a Filofax, unlike the Temperleys.

  16. It has been sold.... there might have been some doubters... but someone has bought it...
