2(X)IST Pop Up Shop

Nancy covers the 2(X)IST pop-up in Times Square. By "cover" I mean she shopped men's underwear with men barely covered by their underwear. Hey, it's for charity!

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to attend a special blogger and editor event at the 2(X)IST Pop Up Shop, located at 1411 Broadway. The pop-up showcased 2(X)IST's holiday Tartan collection of briefs, henleys, and long johns, as well as some of the best sellers from their classic collection. We also got a sneak peek at their new watch collection being released in Spring 2013.

I definitely enjoyed shopping the collection with the company of the models (above), who flawlessly represented the collection. Bonus? Guilt-free shopping as 100% of all profits from the 2(X)IST Pop-Up will be going to the American Red Cross to aid the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. While I can't guarantee some eye candy while you visit the shop, you will feel great about shopping here while finding perfect gifts for the men on your list. Hurry, since the pop up will only be there until December 24th! For the rest of the year, however, you can find 2(X)IST products at Macy's Herald Square.

Express 34th Street: Best Party Dresses on Sale

I said it all in the title, now go to the store and try them on because Express is having a 40% off sale, which means you can get some of the below for around $48-$65. And they are very, very cute.

I'm pulling up the skirt of the dress on the right to show off that adorable sequin layer underneath. This dress is all delicate fun. I'd recommend getting a little punk rock with it and add a jean jacket or cropped leather coat and hope the hem frays through the night because you're having so much fun.

I was tempted to get the red/orange dress to wear under jackets for day, but I got the short maroon dress instead. How could I resist? A perfect, classic cocktail number. I just won't be sitting down much in it!

Ugly Holiday Sweater Party Alert!

This is one ugly sweater party you don't want to miss, because the winning photo of a hideous holiday sweater gets a pair of tickets on Southwest Airlines!

Click on our sister company's Bryant Park Blog for all the details, and check out some competition from last year...

Also, I need to emphasize that there will be eggnog possibilities. Because this party is at Bryant Park's Southwest Porch, participants and viewers alike can partake of their Red-Nosed Reindeer cocktails or Spiced Eggnog. See you there next Monday night looking very ugly and very holiday!

Get Your Free Wine Voucher! And Cute Pet Photos

As the holiday shopping season approaches and starts to make your heart pound, and you might be hyperventilating at the thought of shopping lists, don't forget that we have a Brookstone on 34th Street.

Brookstone has something for everyone: massage chairs (now on sale!), a massaging bed rest (with cup holders? NEED), iPad and iPhone accessories, pretty blue Kindle covers,  foldable yoga mats, and so very much more. Before I regale you with awesome pet accessory photos from, let's get to the FREE WINE: spend $99 at Brookstone and you get a $50 voucher for Click for more details, one per person, blah, blah, and now, awesome pet accessory photos!

Find this under "Pet Supplies/Pet Travel/Dog Car Seats."

Bringing back the working dog, I like it.

I can't show this to my husband because he'll get inspired, and I'll then be married to a crazy cat man.

Biking bloggers everywhere are OMG'ing.

Yes, that's a car seat for a dog, but I don't think there's a 5-point harness involved. We knew a guy in D.C. who had a cat that rode on his motorcycle, no accessories needed. But not everyone is that talented/crazy. Although the puppy in the wicker basket is a shoe-in for general favorite, I'm going to have to go with the working dog who can carry my makeup bag and other vital supplies. See? Brookstone has EVERYTHING.

Levi's 34th Street Boutique: 501s and Neutrals

I could spend a lot of money on Levi's jeans at the boutique on 34th Street, but this past week I focused on the husband's birthday. I found him his favorite 501s in a dark wash on sale for $61, and got him a plaid shirt for 50% off the sale price. While there, I wasn't going to resist trying a few things on for myself, of course.

Jeans are skinny Levi's found back by the 501s, and the tops are by Marine Layer (left) and Alternative Apparel (right). I'll admit I could live out the rest of my life in a great neutral top with a pair of dark wash Levi's, as long as I had a rotating closet of crazy black boots and some serious silver jewelry. Note that Levi's carries brands that don't just look good with their jeans, but also focus on quality fabric and comfort. DUH, it is Levi's!

Louis Vuitton Boutiques Now Open in Macy's Herald Square

Although there are still several designer boutiques under wraps on the first floor of Macy's Herald Square, the renovation of the first floor is already looking fantastic.

It helps that the Louis Vuitton accessories boutique re-opened this week on the first floor, yes?! Soon Gucci, Longchamp, and Burberry will be joining Louis Vuitton for a tour de force of designer accessories that will be tempting shoppers from all angles at the marquee entrance on Broadway.

Soon, Macy's will have designer accessories for you at every turn.

The Louis Vuitton shoe boutique is now also open in the Shoe Salon on the second floor. Naturally, it's beautiful and a sea of calm in its own corner not far from the Herald Square Cafe. That's where you'll find us weary shoppers sipping champagne and contemplating our next purchase, perhaps in the future Burberry shoe boutique.

Did I not say "sea of calm?" Oh, the beauty.

Future home of Burberry shoes. Be still my beating heart.

There's a lot to contemplate in the Shoe Salon now and a lot to look forward to in the future. Cheers, Herald Square shoppers!
You think I'd be sick of kicks and studs by now, but no, not when Betsey Johnson does them like this.

I'd like a terrarium of Cynthia Rowley shoes for Christmas, please.
