I'll Coach You

Just a little heads up, the Coach store on Front Street in the South Street Seaport is going to be putting out a whole new floor set with new items that I can't even find online yet, tomorrow. I suppose it's safe to assume that if they are doing it there it won't be long before they have set them up all over the city. If your an addict you can be one of the first to feed the need.


The most expensive Spy Bag I have seen so far... I'll be really amazed if someone actually buys it.

Chameleon Clothes

On the left is that a dress or is a skirt? Is that the same shirt on the right or two different styles? These two pieces of clothing can really add to your wardrobe this spring because of the dynamic versatility that they bring. Anne Segal's Long Skirt can also double as a dress as you can see, the two for one power of this peice makes the $81.00 price tag one of the best deals you can get for pre-season before all the sales come. The Multi Wrap Top can be worn any way you make it fit and the three different style shown plus whatever you can come up with make the $74.00 price tag like they are giving clothes away. So get your shop on!

Daily Giggle

This really did give me a chuckle... apparently it's "what every fashionista has been waiting for." Manolo Blahnik linen wash or something like that is coming next.

Girls Night Out

Here's a very last minute heads up for my girlies in London, hopefully it didn't come too late if you would have been able to go. Apparently if you are going to be anywhere near Canary Wharf tonight you should stop by and enjoy the free goodie bags and discounts at all the retailers in the area, plus refreshments tonight from 6-9PM, very Shecky's.

I hear tell of a sale going on in good old London for my girlies over there running three days only and starting this Friday, March 31 @10 AM-8PM. It is the DWS Womens-wear sale promising drastically reduced items (50-80%) from designers like Prada, Chloe, Missoni, Diesel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, and Cavalli to name a few. There is a 2 pound entrance fee but that might be worth it to poke around, Time Out Student Guide has called it "one of the best kept secrets in the fashion world," and with reviews like that who wouldn't be intrigued. So "come prepared to battle and lose your inhibitions" at 45 Balfe Street, London, N1, 9EF.
P.S. It's defintially because I don't live in London but these addresses are the most confusing things in the world...

4/20 Everyday

These Vans Pixie slip-ons are super comfy and easy to clean in case they get dirty, not to mentiona adorable in certain way. "Pixie as in pixilated rather than Tinkerbelle, but those plants somehow make the pixie dust connection seem not too far off" - Urban Outfitters

Now Your Week Is Complete

They Should Pay Her

Mariah is a walking advertisement for Louis Vuitton. First she references the fashion design house in her lyrics and this past Sunday she used the Louis Vuitton boutique in Beverly Hills as the backdrop for her new upcoming video with Snoop Dogg, Say Somethin'. I wonder if she's looking to be the new face for their Spring/Summer '07 ad campaign becuase Fall/Winter '06 has already been taken by Lindsey Lohan... ugh. I hope for Mariah's sake she's at tleast getting some sweet comps. out of the whole arrangement.

*So I packed up my Louis Vuitton, jumped in your ride, and took off. You'll never find a girl who loves you more than me*

Call On Line 2

What is up with Parker Posey's bag? I know stars are always looking to make their mark on the red carpet but generally it should be a positive one, right?

No Fools Here

For all who are fans of Armani Exchange don't miss the one day only sample sale taking place this Saturday, April 1. Although it is boasting items between $5-$40 there is a catch, it's cash only, it's from 9:30am-3pm and it's located at 125 Enterprise Ave. South in Secaucus, NJ. You win some, you lose some but if you have a car I would say that this is worth a look.

Third Times A Charm

Jewelry, Jewelry Everywhere...

There has been alot of posting about jewelry sales and I have to tell you I am not obsessed it's just there is some really great stuff out there. Personally, I think earrings make the outfit so I had to show you these adorable, seashell and crocheted flower with Swarovski crystal accent, earrings from Hawaiian designer Cindy Yokoyama. Her line Ginger 13 is the perfect stuff to compliment any outfit meant for fun in the sun.

Little Lulu, I Love You-Lu Just The Same

Planet Lulu is the craizest sample sale website I have ever experienced. It is only open to shop a few days a month and to know when to check you have to be on their invite list. Well ladies sign up now because tonight at 9:45 EST they open for a sale boasting over 100 designers, 1000's of items, and as always 50-90% of retail. And if you see something you like, snag it because everything good sells out in a matter of minutes, if not seconds.

Is it Worth It? Lemme Work It!

As the weather starts to get warmer and summer time rapidly approaches everyone is overjoyed that the doldrums of winter are going to fade away and out of our minds at least for a little while. Then comes the panic, "How am I ever going to make it into a bathing suit looking like this!" and the rush to the gym. And as crappy as that might sound at least you can look cute while working out, with some of these adorable t's, tanks, and other stuff. You never know maybe it will help to motivate.

He's Back and Better than Ever

For any fans of Project Runway you have to know that I am talking about Santino, because we all knew that he wasn't falling off the radar. In the upcoming season 3 auditions in L.A. Santino will be one of the judges telling it how it is to hopefuls from all over Cali. If you want to know more about what is going on with Santino you can check his interview in the Village Voice or you can just read about it on his personal blog. This will also link you to the Santino store and you can show your support like a true fan, wearing his more casual designs.
Also, New York hopefuls, don't forget that Bravo is having the Season 3 NYC casting call at Macy's Herald Square on March 25th. Details are key.

Sale of the Century

Threadless is having a sale: everything on the website is $10 till Wednesday, stock up now because they never do this and the T's are kick ass!

Necklaces, Bracelets, and Rings, Oh My!

Be Kind, Rewind

First there was Plusdeck 2, a cassette deck for computers reviving the musical means of the 80's and 90's. Now tapes have managed to infiltrate fashion. You know you want to relive the glory days hoping for the mix tape from your secret crush with these awesome earrings...

Urkel Style

Mischa Barton just fell out of a timewarp from the 1980's, or off of the runway of the Spring 2006 runway shows for Luella, Max Mara, and Mui Mui. Whether is a new spring trent or not, I don't think I'll be rocking the whole suspenders look this season and 89% of the people polled in AOL's most recent "Would You Wear It?" celeb fashion risk survey agree.

The Little Black Dress

The black dress is a timeless fashion piece that will always be a favorite of mine. If your looking for a new one to add to your wardrobe for summer this dress from JCrew is a good choice for casual elegance. Lightweight seersucker cotton makes it perfect for summer. That and the halter style make this dress a good fit for most body types.

Pirates Get Nookie Year Round

I found a new site for awesome graphic t's. This one with the pirate totally reminds me of Alex, as does everyting with a pirate theme. has some really funny, cute stuff and they're pretty original to boot, a key factor in this crazy t-shirt world. But, don't worry Threadless I will forever be your girl.

Loving You

This bag is my new obsession and I bet you wouldn't be able to guess who makes it. Let's just say it's a far cry from the studs and tassles that this brand was recognized for. I never thought I could cozy up to a Bulga but I really am in love.

Fashion Week Again?

Next week, starting on the 20th and running till the 24th, in London they will be holding an "Alternative Fashion Week". Although you might think it sounds like a pale comparison to the originals of New York, Paris, and London itself you are mistaken. They are doing it right with runway shows everyday by Britain's most innovation young designers and chances to pick up a thing of two that catches your eye at major discounts. This event will be held at the new Spitalfields Traders Market, Crispin Place, Brushfield Street, E1.

Gym Couture

Stella McCartney is all over the place. She has her own line of clothes, a smash hit line for H&M, and a new baby so it only makes sense to add something else to her already busy schedule. Something like a line of fabulous athletic wear for Adidas. This adorable number totally makes me want to take up tennis just for an excuse to wear it but thankfully I don't have to. I'm sure it translates for a day of whatever when the weather gets warmer and stays that way.

The Love of My Life

That Steve Buscemi is one total hottie, you know you want him.


I know this doesn't really have anything to do with fashion but I just couldn't help but be distracted by the Duffs. Haylie looks like her fabulous self but who is that next to her? That couldnt possilbly be... o yes, it could. Eat a cheeseburger Hillary, you need it because I don't know how those dumbells aren't toppling you over.

Everything Must Go

This Saturday from 2-6 EMG will be having there collective vintage and designer sale with a late night party that is held once a month at the Tribeca Grand. Collections and sellers vary from month to month, so there are always new items and styles, you will never know what kinda of vintage gold you might find. Later that night, from 10-4, they host a party, there are no invites just make sure you RSVP while your there shopping it up. Hopefully you'll manage to snag some fabulous YSL, Missoni, or Gucci to wear that night when your partying it up. Located at 2 Avenue of the Americas (btwn. Church St. & W. Broadway, just as at the desk for the room number.

Spring Break

While I was sitting around lamenting my lack of spring break I stumbled upon this paparazzi shot of Victoria Beckham and her son Romeo vacationing in the Pyrennes. If that wasn't enough, checkout his boots. I wish I led such a charmed life.

Juicy Girl's Best Friend

Right now you can get some Juicy velour sweats on sale at . They are almost as inexpensive as if you had spent the day digging through racks of clothes at Century 21 but, without the pushing, shoving, and all the while listening to songs that I know my grandparents have on vinyl somewhere. Sometimes convenience really is the way to go.

The Handywoman's Dream

There is a whole culture of handy/creative people that swear by this nifty, sticky, normally silver, tough stuff. I am speaking, of course, about duct tape. There is a even a scholarship competition in which participants create prom dresses and tuxes entirely out of duct tape then submit pictures to be voted on. Some people, like Vanessa Jean, take it one step further. She has parlayed her craftiness and love of duct tape stuff into vanessa jean * duct tape design. I mean who really wants to settle down or get stuck with a real job after graduating from college, this seems like a much better alternative. Right now they are having a major clearance and bonus for all Pace University students... if you use your One Card you get 10 bonus point for every dollar you spend.

Jem, is excitement... Glamour and glitter. Fashion and fame.

Ever since I met Karla and Julie of V'ta I can not stop singing their praises. Their designs are beautiful and one of a kind, not to mention that these two ladies themselves are absolute sweethearts. Shopping with them is a total blast because the minute you pick something up they are right there suggesting complementary pieces and offering all the help they can to make sure that you leave with a huge smile on your face and jewelry to fit a queen. I spent a decent amount of time in the showroom today and walked away with these shaved watermelon tourmaline earrings and a few other choice items, happy as ever. Every lady should own somehting this beautiful and now you know where to get what you've been searching for.

Shelly, Renee, and Dolce, Oh My!

Shelly and Renee Productions presents a fabulous spring designer sample sale featuring designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Stella, David Rodriguez, to name a few. They will also have Nancy Gonzalez croc handbags starting at $350.00! So this Sunday head on over to the Helmsley Park Lane Hotel 36 Central Park South/59th St. (btwn. 5th & 6th) Suite 503.

Loop-dy Loo

If you enter the code DCLOOP on the Loop website you can get 30% off this week. I don't know about you but I totally want to rock the Chairman Mao sleep mask. If that doesn't do it for you there are tons of purses, totes, and other random accessories to choose from.

In Wonderland

Starting tomorrow there will be a huge Alice & Olivia sale, 50-70% off... o yeah. This three day sale will take place at 80 W. 40th St. (nr. 6th), on the second floor. The first two days the sale will be going on from 9am-6pm but on the third it's only 11-3. I guess that is like their seventh day, and they rest.

The Postman's Secret

These undies are quite adorable but I know your wondering what makes them so special. And, I'd bet you didn't know that the avarage life expectancy of panties is only three months. Makes you think, who really had time to replace their unmentionable that frequently? That is where these adorable thongs come in. You can get them in quantities of 2, 4, and 6 through a knickerscription, or service that delivers perfect panties through your postbox every three months for one year. A better bet for our friends in the UK because the prices are in pounds and delivery is quicker because the service is based in England.

Urban Shoe Myth

I don't know how many of you were hard core Sex and the City fans but if you were you know what I am referring to. When Carrie steps into the Vouge accesory closet and she spots these little jems.

Manolo Blahnik Patent Leather Mary Janes.

They are not as much of a myth as the HBO series would expect you to believe because you can purchase them at Neiman Marcus. Right now they have limited sizes and even those are backordered but if you are patient and check back you might be able to find them in your size because they will eventually restock.

Carrie: It's really hard to walk in a single woman's shoes, that's why you sometimes need really special shoes!

Clothes Out on the Line promotes samples sales for SSS Sample Sales at their home location in the garment district, 261 W. 36th Street (btwn. 7th & 8th). Earlier this season they had a huge Evisu/Ben Sherman sale that was very widely publicized and attended. Now, they have a new selction of designers like Salt, Free People, White and Warren, Tocca, and many more. These next couple of days will be the last chance to take advantage of the winter clearance that they have been rocking for the past few weeks. With prices and goods ranging from $10 cashmere to $80 namebrand outwear, this is worth a peek.
