Tuesday Miscellany

-- Visit Soiffer Haskin today and tomorrow for the Krizia/Stuart Weitzman sample sales. If you buy two or more Stuart Weitzman shoes you'll get an additional 10% off, and Krizia is now 85-90% off retail. Here's a couple of Krizia spring 2008's:

I either didn't like this collection or couldn't get over the knee socks with everything. I'm checking out the sale this morning. Now if they have this kittycat bag from spring '07...

-- The Aeropostale in Manhattan Mall still has coupons for the Teens for Jeans campaign. Donate your "gently worn" jeans at the store (they'll go to local teen homeless shelters) and get a coupon for 20% off your next Aeropostale jeans purchase. The store said they should have enough coupons for another week.

"Gap and Pierre Hardy launch a much-anticipated line of summer sandals, wedges, and flats, next month - welcome news to shoe savants who now don't have to make the trip abroad or solicit expat friends to grab a pair, as they might have done when the shoe designer's debut collaborative collection flew off French and U.K. shelves last fall."
So next month means March? I'm putting money on them being on 34th Street just before March. Mr. Hardy's summer '08 collection shoes are now on his site, like these...

-- A favorite piece from the Raf Simons fall 08:

If I could afford it I'd buy this all for my man and then borrow it. My ideal daywear is ambisexual - maybe as an OWC (one wardrobe couple) we could afford some Raf Simons. Who in the district would pick up on this jacket? Zara, perhaps? Also note Mr. Simons' creeper inspired shoes throughout the video. Everyone pat yourself on the back for not throwing away leopard print creepers from the 90's.
