They are on sale (finally). SALE_PLP_BANNER_6.29_50

Secretly I have been coveting these Stuart Weitzman gladiator sandals for a couple of months.  Despite the fact that I live in Boston, a city where summer, aka sandal season, is only a few weeks long.

Fashion & Finance Friday!

What A Week!!!!!!!

Hurricane Sandy was one destructive storm, taking New York and the fashion world with it!

Hearst, Condé Nast, Corporate head offices such as J.Crew, malls such as reversecommuter’s favorite, The Americana Manhasset, all shut down – some still shut down as of today.  Malls and shops throughout the East Coast black and empty.    Barney’s re-opened Tuesday afternoon and although Fred’s (awesome restaurant – BEST people watching ever!!!) was still closed, the fab fashion peeps at Barney’s were spoiling shoppers with pb&j sandwiches and coffee.  Yet ANOTHER reason (on top of the shoe department!!!) to love love love Barney’s!

Spanx is opening stand alone boutiques – women and men throughout the US are shouting HURRAY!!!!!!!!!!  Spanx is privately owned by the founder, smarty pants Sara Blakely, and has annual sales of approximately $230 MILLION.  That number will definitely grow as the Spanx stores do!

Evian & DVF (click here for my earlier post on this awesome collaboration!) have released their bottle – is there nothing La Grande Dame Diane cannot knock out of the park?!?!  It is the very first time that Evian has invited an American designer to participate.  And the bottle is PHENOM!

Have a fantastic, hurricane free, champs infused weekend!

Which Way is Up?

Sometimes real life and the fashion world can seem a little confusing.

Retail stores are clearing out all things Summer 2012.  Or it is already all gone.

Pre-fall items are already trickling in, and full force Fall 2012 is en route and I am BEYOND giddy about that!  (see picture below – me, giddy)

However…there is a big ol’ heat wave pummeling the East Coast right now so once again I am going to pay homage to my absolute FAVE bikini designer, SHAN.

Click here  to ooooooh and ahhhhhhhh, then call one of the Shan boutiques and get yourself a little something to wear in the 100 degree heat!

Or, just drool on this gorgeous Fall 2012-2013 wish list.
