Curious about what was on sale @ Anthropologie.com at the moment, I wandered over there to see what was cooking. Here are my loves … The Corsage Blouse — originally $98, on sale for $49. The Soaring Shapes Dress — originally $178, now $79. The Smocked Canvas Tote — originally $78, now $39. The Hale Shower Necklace — originally $38,… View Post
I am the one who’s always looking for sales, scouring the clearance racks, and refusing to pay full price for something when I know I can get it for less. So it is a rare occasion for me to walk into a store and immediately buy something that is full price without hemming and hawing over it. I needed a… View Post
I fancy myself a preppy bohemian … so I don’t normally go into stores like Bakers Shoes because, well, their merch tends to come off more hooker-ish than preppy bohemian to me. Now, I don’t mean ANY offense at all to anyone who absolutely adores Bakers and wears those hardcore 6-inch stilettos. Believe me– if I didn’t look like a… View Post
Was anyone else as entertained as I was to see Mayim Bialik of Blossom fame on the season premiere of What Not To Wear last night? Such a great story– she has such a great, quirky personal style but had become a completely frumpy “I’ve let myself go” mom. Anyways, you can view photos from the makeover here and read… View Post
Loving this slideshow of 15 cute-as-a-button summer dresses from FabSugar…and they all cost less than $100 each.
Is anyone else completely disturbed by the fact that American Apparel is now selling scrunchies? (Image courtesy of American Apparel)
Many thanks to blog Fashion Herald for reminding me that Bare Escentuals is opening a new boutique in Midtown Manhattan tomorrow! … making at least one more good thing about working in the Garment District. I think that brings the total to like 3 good things. I have blogged before about how much I love and believe in Bare Escentuals… View Post
I made the trek out to Long Island today to check out the Tracy Feith collection at Target— I figured I’d have a better chance of finding the larger sizes out there as opposed to winging it in Queens. I would say by the time I made it to the store at about 10 or 10:30, the section had already… View Post
I had a great time on my trip to Florida– not just because I got to see my Godfather blast off into space, but because I got to wear some fun outfits in the process. Here I am at our family’s pre-launch reception at the Cocoa Beach Country Club with my mom. Of course the guest of the hour, my… View Post
One of my favorite coupons to receive via e-mail (and believe me, they arrive weekly to my inbox) are the coupons for New York & Company. They give you $30 off a $75 purchase … which is pretty substantial if you think about it … none of this ‘free shipping on purchases over $125‘ or ‘save 10%‘ measly nonsense. That’s… View Post
Is it just me, or does it seem like the new plus-size line Faith 21 from the folks @ Forever 21 is a really small collection? I think I was expecting there to be a lot more pieces or something… perhaps they are testing how this goes first, before expanding it? I think it would behoove them to roll out… View Post
Gap, Inc. has added a new brand to its family — Athleta, which is being billed as “feminine, performace-driven apparel.” You can shop by sport, they’ve got swimwear, footwear, bras & undies, and even a collection of skirts & dresses. At first glance it seems a little pricey for me, but perhaps they are trying to compete with the high… View Post
A coworker and I were just talking about how much we dread swimsuit season, but also how much we love those retro swimsuits that are coming back in style…you know, those 1950s one-pieces that look really sexy but still hide all your “indiscretions” haha … Anyways, I think I may have stumbled upon a wallet-friendly version of the great swimsuit… View Post

Apparently there will also be some Derek Lam thrown into the mix. The sale runs until Friday. Happy… View Post
