Fashion & Finance Friday!

It really is GOOD Friday!!!!!!!!!

Hudson’s Bay (Canadian retailer that also owns Lord & Taylor – click here for more info) is serious!  Expansion plans, sinking a ton of dough into the business and bringing in fab designers such as Jonathan Simkhai (click here to fall in love with some gorgeous clothes!).

It’s so interesting to see a retailer investing in their business and seeing the stock rise, when others are suffering in this economy (such as JC Penny).

Stella McCartney has been royally recognized!

The Queen bestowed the Order of the British Empire award for her service in the fashion industry.  She wore a navy blue suit from her line (naturally) and looked divine!  Interestingly her daddy got the same award (as part of the Beatles) in 1965.

Hoppy Easter Everyone!

Wear a fab pair of heels for the egg hunt – just for the fun of fashion!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Happy Heat Wave Friday!  Anyone for the beach?

Ideeli, one of those websites that hosts limited time sales, just received a $30 MILLION investment from some investors, one of whom is Credit Suisse.  Ideeli has a great collection of designers, stylists and editors that work together and their sales are fab!

The Queen loves McQueen!  During QEII’s Birthday Honors list last week (that sounds like a stressful job), she recognized Sarah Burton and her gorgeous designs.  I love Alexander McQueen, and I appreciate the Queen’s great taste but I for one would rather the monarch leave the cutting edge designer outfits for her new daughter-in-law.  Just saying….

Have a spectacular weekend!
