  Nothing of note caught my eye at the Hermes sample sale when I dropped into Soiffer Haskin today.  It's possible that I may have missed the boat and waited too long to check out the merchandise.  However, I don't think it would have made a difference if I had stood in line for at least two hours yesterday and went in then.  Today, it was a breeze to get in ([...]

Head to Housing Works for a Good Cause

Housing Works is hosting its fall preview through the end of September. Tuesday night, I made it into the Tribeca location where the preview started at 5pm. When I walked in, I was immediately greeted by a live band performing funky tunes. The music gave the place a lively atmosphere. The band was a nice touch. The merchandise is very organized with the wom[...]

Up the street from Project No. 8 is Gargyle's end-of-season clearance sale where you'll find items from Acne, Rachel Comey, Vena Cava, Surface to Air, United Bamboo and more for up to 85 percent off.  I stopped in over the weekend.  A few things caught my eye such as a Vena Cava top ($150) and dress ($175) and a pair of Surface to Air sandals ($150).  But nothi[...]
