Fashion & Finance Friday!

Greetings & Salutations FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!

VB6

Fall trends that have been sashaying down runways from NYC to Milan include leather –  and LOTS of it – as exhibited by Veronica Beard’s Fall Collection (click the blue to see more), capes (how super hero-ish!) and florals (yup, even into fall).  So that means that clever fashion savvy shoppers now know what makes a smart buy!

Peek-a-Boo LuLu!

Lulu Lemon had an unfortunate yoga pant transparency issue earlier this week – and it has cost the company a bundle in stock value!  Lulu’s CEO, Christine Day told Bloomberg News that the only way to confirm the see-thru quality was for customers to bend over – the transparency issue was only when customers’ stretched in them.  Click the blue to go to lululemon.com.

Which makes reversecommuter point out the obvious – THEY ARE YOGA PANTS, THERE IS GOING TO BE ALOT OF STRETCHING!!!!!!  Unless of course the customer is wearing them all day long and not doing yoga -which is another travesty all together!

Q4 Earnings have started rolling in (reversecommuter LOVES this time of year!!) and the news is pretty good so far – NIKE, Tiffany’s, Hermes, Sak’s, The Gap have all reported an increase in earnings despite a difficult holiday period and wacky winter weather.

 

Enjoy the weekend – mix your patterns just for giggles and drink some champs too!

  1. Lovely post as usual. I am so very happy that leather is going to stick around next fall! My favorite trend. Also, I heard about the Lulu Lemon situation…and I think you’re right…Yoga pants are for yoga! So very much stretching (and don’t my hamstrings know it!). Hope the rest of your day is wonderful 🙂

  2. You see lulu all day long where I live. It’s rather annoying – even for me! I’m going to get yoga-punched for even mentioning that! Happy Friday!
