Fashions Night Out Was Bananas

Yesterday was crazy. I went to my school’s graduate fashion show, which was the best one yet.  I got to see some guy from Project Runway, whose name I can’t remember, and Miss J from ANTM. I will do a separate post for that show, so I can actually review each graduate designer. This was the first time that I actually liked each collection.

The best part was doing Fashions Night Out. After leaving Lincoln Center, I took two trains to the famous 5th Avenue and took pictures of all the live models and craziness happening in the store windows. Gant and Louis Vuitton were my favs because Gant had naked lacrosse players posing and taking showers in the windows 🙂 and Louis Vuitton had people in brown LV aprons doing synchronized dancing down the steps and dancing in the store windows.  One of the dancers in the window even licked a Speedy bag. ??!?!?!?

Barneys NY Warehouse Sale Is Coming… Save The Moolah Now!!!

New Shoes Up At TFAS Shop!

I get emails from Barneys New York, which is totally bad news bears IMHO because I don’t need to spend money because I don’t have any. YEP! I said it!  So imagine my surprise when I got the email today advertising the major major majorly awesome Warehouse Sale! If you live anywhere near New York (August 19-September 6), Los Angeles (August 5-August 15), or San Francisco (July 29-August 8) please check it out. Word to the wise though:

  1. Only bring a wallet or small handbag. When I went to the sale in NY, I had to give them my bag and take a ticket. If I had anything of value in my purse I had to haul it and store it in a giant clear trash bag. Security is tight.
  2. Prepare to see celebrities. They like to save too. I totally geeked out in silence when I saw Sofia Coppola.
  3. Wear comfy flats and comfy clothes, so you can try on different items without having any problems. Most people were trying on clothes on top of their clothes because everything is so tight and secure in the space.

Low End/High End


Check out these low end/high end alternatives from the Torrid website. I found them while trying to surf their rush hour $19.99 bootie sale last week. I also had a recent convo on twitter with Garner Style about knockoffs. I sit on the fence when it comes to knockoffs. I also truly believe in the trickle down/ trickle up theory of fashion. That means that fashion either comes from the Haute Couture and moves down into the masses or moves from the street upward.I also realize that people want to look good and have the latest threads but may not be able to afford or fit in them, so they get the knockoff version.


The thing I don’t like is a blatant copy. Change the buckle, make it in a different color, respect the designer’s hard work, and don’t make these goods in sweatshops where the money goes to drugs or terrorism. I once read a report where the boss of a factory broke the legs of the children who worked there and then tied their legs together so they couldn’t move. Why would you want to support something like this? So think twice before you buy a fake bag out of Auntie Kiki’s car at the gas station.


That being said, I believe that these Dollhouse shoes are apart of the trickle down theory. I hope so, because they are really cute and I want a pair.
