Happy Happy Weekend!!!!!!
Gucci won a $144.2 MILLION settlement against the fakers! Online fakes to be exact. The judge also demanded that over 150 url’s be given up as well, so that the online businesses that sold over 20 different versions of Gucci bags can no longer operate. Take That!!!!!

Change is a good thing, even when sudden. Moda Operandi’s creative director, Taylor Tomasi Hill, has left the company. Rumor has it that the departure was because she didn’t get her promised share in the company. Happily, the goddess of all things Moda Operandi, the UBER wondrous Lauren Santo Domingo is still making sure all the prettiest things from runways make it onto the site for dedicated online fashion addicts (like me!).
Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s designer and Chief Creative Officer, has been named Chief Executive Officer – CCO & CEO and a mad plaid designing machine! Christopher is also an internet GENIUS who first invited regular shoppers into the guarded universe of runway shows by streaming the show onto the company’s website. Investors did not seem too excited about the selection and Burberry’s shares closed down. I for one am quite excited to see what else comes forth from Brit Boy Genius!
Enjoy the weekend & wear heels to leaf peep!
