welcome to manhattan, target.

When I moved back to New York in June, I was ecstatic to find that there would be a Target opening on the island. No more trips to the Bronx for this girl to get that red and khaki fix! I headed to the new store today because I was excited to check out the … Continue reading

countdown: costello tagliapietra for uniqlo

It is no secret that Uniqlo is my favorite store in all of New York (and only second behind COS if I count the entire world). I adore their selection of basics and trend pieces (and that rack of tights–oh my!) and the friendly prices are just an added bonus. Now, it seems that my … Continue reading

spring trend: the romper

I have to admit, I am loving the romper trend for spring. I like the playful look and the fact that it can easily be dressed up for a night out (add platforms and a chic blazer) or dressed down for strolling the city on the weekend (wedges and a fedora).  The look is best … Continue reading

now open: my sister’s closet, uptown

I have a lot of favorite stores in Minneapolis, but My Sister’s Closet is a favorite. Where else in the Twin Cities can you score a flirty Banana Republic spring dress along side a slate-gray Escada floor length sweater wrap (I have dibs on it, so don’t even try to go and buy it…) and … Continue reading

prada dresses never broke my heart before.

Today, one of my favorite local consignment/vintage stores, My Sister’s Closet on Grand Avenue in St. Paul, had the first day of their annual winter clearance sale. The store is owned by two sisters and is home to everything from Banana Republic to Moschino (along with the most incredible selection of vintage hats, scarves, bags and … Continue reading

it’s baaaaaack.

If I had $300 right now I would a.) buy a plane ticket back to Minneapolis for August 19 and b.) use  the rest of the money to shop at the gh2 90% off sale going on August 20-21. No, you are not hallucinating: 90% off. This incredible sale only takes place twice per year and … Continue reading

object of my affection.

Currently, I am one-hundred percent lusting after this Alexander Wang blazer. I found it at an undisclosed store today for a ridiculously amazing price. It fits me like no other blazer has in the history of blazers. I am trying to devise a way that I can pay for this lovely item. Total investment piece? … Continue reading

it appears i have been living in a cave.

HOW DID I NOT KNOW A BARNEYS WAS OPENING IN CHICAGO? Have I completely failed as a smart, fashion-news oriented, young woman? Yes. I have failed all of you, but most importantly I have failed myself. This is huge. Of course, not as huge as if there was a Barneys opening on Nicollet [preferably in … Continue reading

matthew williamson for h&m.

Here are six looks by Matthew Williamson for H&M, which hits stores on April 23. It looks like a fun collection and I am sure it will go fast. A lot of it is peacock inspired [only one dress shown below, but more looks featured on The Cut show it] which was a big trend … Continue reading
