P.S. from Aeropostale's Free Photo Booth

While perusing Manhattan Mall last week, p.s. from Aeropostale's photo booth caught my eye.

Photos from the booth are free when you make any $40 purchase. For those of you unfamiliar with the p.s. brand, it is the younger sister to Aeropostale, and it is chock full of FUN.

So next time you're shopping with your daughter, son, younger sister, brother, niece, nephew, etc, shop p.s. and commemorate it with a photo! Because these days, we have to take advantage of our moments together wherever we can get them.

After the Macy's Flower Show, the most spring color to be found on 34th Street is on display in Joe Fresh.

...the print skirt is $39, the dress is $29, and the peach military jacket is $49. While styles are similar to what can be found online, the colors in store right now are much more bright, fun, and yeah, spring-like!

DSW Shoe of the Week: Mercanti Fiorentini Loafers

Because spring starts tomorrow, and a girl can dream of slipping on her peach shoes and going out for a stroll, this week's shoe is the Mercanti Fiorentini loafer.

$69.95 (compare at $150) at DSW 34th Street. A price that can turn the dream into reality, if only the weather would comply.

Opening Soon on 34th Street: Zumiez

Just a few weeks ago we reported the closing of Aéropostale at 15 West 34th Street, and today we are happy to announce that Zumiez is moving into the now-vacated space. 

Future new home of Zumiez 34th Street. Remember, Aeropostale still has a store in Manhattan Mall.

Zumiez will be filling the skateboard style void left when Billabong closed their 34th Street store almost a year ago. With their young appeal and breadth of brands (hello, Married to the Mob, Crooks and Castles, neff, and so many more) they should do well on 34th. We look forward to the opening of their new 34th Street store, which is reported to be mid-April.

Debuting Today: Isabel Toledo for Lane Bryant

Today is the launch of Isabel Toledo for Lane Bryant, and this collection is a beauty. Find the talented Ms. Toledo's elegant and stylish looks online and at the 34th Street flagship.

Photos below from the gloss


Classy yet sexy and beautifully crafted, these clothes are in line with Isabel Toledo's aesthetic and offer gorgeous styles for the plus-size shopper. Or, as Julia Sonenshine states over at The Gloss, Isabel Toledo x Lane Bryant is "...basically the opposite of most clothing made for plus sizes, which normally takes every pain possible to obscure the bodies. These don’t make any excuses or try to hide. These clothes say “look at me.

Journey's Update: Moving Back to 34th Street

Remember how Orva Shoes is moving out of 34 West 34th Street to 1282 Broadway?

Well, it looks like this is going to be a fast turnover as work on the building is moving right along for the new shoe purveyor, Journeys. Journeys was previously in Herald Center but moved out last year. We are happy to have Journeys back on 34th Street with their Dr. Martens, their UGG Australias, addidas, Toms, and other fabulous, fun kicks. Frankly, they didn't have a huge street-front presence at Herald Center, so it will be interesting to see what they do with a larger-profile space.

Welcome back to 34th Street, Journeys!

Coming soon to 34 West 34th Street

DSW Shoe of the Week: Zanotti Studded Flats

I mean, are you kidding me with this perfection.

It pains me to share this. Really, I want to be a horrible, hoarding, Giuseppe Zanotti flat freak and not tell anyone about this shoe. But it's my job, so here you go. You're welcome.
