Rachel Roy

Bought these sparkly Rachel Roy flats to perk up my winter outfits.  They were just $15 on clearance from Housing Works!  Their big sale is going on through this evening, so there’s still time to check it out.



On Mondays it can be hard to conjure up your creative ‘get up and go.’  So I’m looking at the new Zaha Hadid ‘Nova’ shoe for inspiration.  It’s for the innovative shoe company United Nude.  I don’t know how comfortable it is to wear.  And at $2,000, I can’t afford it.  But looking at it does inspire me to be more creative in whatever I do.  Click on the video below if you’d like to see how the shoe is made and what it looks like when it’s worn.


I’ve loved J.Crew for a long time, waaaaaaay before Michelle Obama made it popular.  This is one brand in which the sizes run big, so I can still wear a size 6!  If you can brave the bad weather, check out the J.Crew sample sale at 260 Fifth Avenue between 28th and 29th Streets.  It runs through Sunday, so if you can’t get there today, there are still more opportunities to score deals on their stylish, fun clothes.  Hours are Tues.-Sat. 10am to 8pm, and Sun. 12pm-6pm, with markdowns on clothes for women, men and kids.











We can now see the full line up of the Maison Martin Margiela collection for H&M courtesy of Refinery 29.  I love it, but I don’t love that very few items are under $100.  In addition to the gloved purse you see above, I want this shoe.









And what mother wouldn’t check out this crazily named ‘car seat cover dress’?











I wish the collection wouldn’t sell went it arrives on November 15th so I could get some bargains, but these clothes are too cool and that’s not going to happen.
