Plenty of Tracy Reeses on Sale in Midtown...

No line outside the Tracy Reese sample sale when I stopped in first thing this morning.  There was a line at the cash register and the dressing room.  This is the first day of the sale.  There appeared to be lots of dresses to be had, mostly Reese’s Plenty line.  I'm a small so I checked out the size 2s.  Not a lot that I liked.  But there were a lot of cute [...]

The Spades (Kate & Jack) Sample Sale... thru June 18th

I checked out the Kate and Jack Spade sample sale in Midtown just before they shut the doors tonight.  I didn't have a lot of time to look but I quickly took a survey and noticed a lot of merchandise left - great handbags for work and fun summer totes.  There wasn't a lot of Jack Spade goods on offer - messenger bags and microfiber envelopes.  The sale showcases a [...]

Celebrity Spotting at the Renegade Craft Fair...

Walking into the Renegade Craft Fair in Williamsburg this Saturday afternoon, I spotted a little boy playing with a blow up Spider-man doll.  He was so engaged with the act that instinct made me take out my camera and start snapping photos.  I suddenly realized that his father (who happened to be close by) is Watchmenstar Patrick Wilson. He also starred opposite Kate [...]
