Screen shot 2013-04-07 at 12.11.14 AM

Target is the best. We all know it and we all accept it. And, obviously, one of the things that makes Target so great is the tradition of capsule collections that give mere mortals and the 99% access to great designer fashions. The pieces I have from Thakoon and Proenza Schouler’s Target collections are some […]

Zac Posen for Target

What has two thumbs and is pumped for the new Zac Posen for Target collection even though she’s more that 4300 miles from the nearest Target?  That’s right, this girl.  Only nine days until you can own a Zac Posen piece for about 1/40 what you would normally have to pay- prices of the Target […]

life is like a MintBox of chocolates

Another members-only sample-sale site?   GET OUTTA TOWN.  Because everyone and their mother isn’t hopping on that bandwagon (which, by the way, is the best bandwagon EVER).  Anyway.  Mintbox is a website that offers members access to private sales and events, style advice from designers and stylists, AND 5% cash back on every purchase.   Unlike most sample sales […]

Georgia Varidakis Jewelry

Another vendor from Artists & Fleas that I absolutely loved was Georgia Varidakis.  Her designs are feminine, delicate, and unique, and I would wear all of them.   Plus, everything is completely reasonable- prices range from $18 – $240.       Check out her website or visit her stand at Artists and Fleas (129 N 6th […]

Easy as 1, 2, 3, (4, 5)

If you are moving into a new place or are just tired of the way your apartment/house/condo/trailer is decorated, have I got a suggestion for you.  A good one.  Buy some canvases and some paint colors you like.  Paint each canvas a different color.  Let dry.  Hang up.  It’s actually that easy.  This took me […]

Ok, this is embarassing…

I have a confession to make.  I hope that after I get this off my chest we can put it behind us, move on and remain friends.  Nay, I hope that this admission will help our bond to become stronger because I am throwing caution to the wind and showing you a dark piece of […]

Wear Today, Gone Tomorrow

After I wrote a post about RentTheRunway, I was informed of a similar site – WearTodayGoneTomorrow.com.  The site has been providing the same service as Rent The Runway for about a year and actually offers a wider variety of designers.  With rental prices at a mere 5 – 10% of retail values, I’ve seen dresses […]

Jimmy Choo. H&M. Today.

The Jimmy Choo collection for H&M is available at select stores today.  Actually, it might already be sold out.  I saw a couple this morning with, like, 8 ENORMOUS bags from the store.  It was 10:30.  That’s so bad ass.  They couldn’t even carry them all and had to put everything down on the steps […]
