Affordable Designer...

Who knew khaki could be so exciting? The Gap has partnered up with the hippest designers to remake something basic into something absolutely covetable. Simple is Sexy! This year’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund nominees (including Vena Cava and Alexander Wang) have reworked Gap’s classic khaki fabric into fabulous creations which will launch in stores on June 16th. Personally, I can't wait because these pictures look like come of the items could be work worthy.

And speaking of a designer collaboration that is not so work worthy. Tracy Feith for Target's Go International line hit stores on Monday and although I haven't had a chance to take a look I would bet that it is flying of the shelves. Perfect for bumming around at the beach on those warm summer says when I'll probably be sitting in my office working. O well, There are always weekends.

There are also some sample sales going on that I think are worth checking out:
  • J Rosen is having their fabulous designer bathing suit, flip flop, and jewelry sample sale with new merchandise arriving daily. The swimsuit designers include Vix, Sofia by Vix, Hermanny, and Lisa Curran, who are normally sold at Saks Fifth Ave, Bloomingdale's, Scoop, and Intermix. The designer jewelry includes earrings with semi-precious stones, gold bangles, and necklaces. Cocobelle Sandals normally $95 only $40!!.There is always something fun and exciting to find at this sale with a wide variety of bikinis, one-pieces, and tankinis. Mix and match sizes to find the perfect fit! And when J Rosen has a sample sale most of the other showrooms in the building do as well.
  • Clothingline is having a theory sample sale, with over 5000 units of mostly new merchandise and some restock including shirts, knits, shorts, pants, denim, dresses & more
    tees $29 knits, shirts & sweaters $69 - $89 shorts, skirts & pants $59 - $89 dresses $99 blazers $139 sizes 00 - 12 / petite - xlarge
  • Opening yesterday was the Gilt Groupe sample sale at my fav eco sample sale location. Follow the map and find the treasure.
  • Burberry has the goods and starting today they're giving you 40% off that's nearly half off select items from the 2009 spring and summer collections for men and women. and it doesn't end there accessories are included in the bundle.
