Struggling Economy Doesn't Mean Boring Stores

It seems that the toughest times are in the stores where the panic level is the greatest. What I am seeing is a lot of business owners and salespeople willing to use the economy as an excuse for a lack of energy and innovation in their stores. Even in the worst of times, people still get engaged and married. They still celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, births, achievements and love.

Kate B. Peterson, president and CEO of Performance Concepts

As the clothing market goes from bad to worst accessories are on the rise. American consumers are purchasing new accessories to spiff up their old clothes. The fashion-accessories market is expected to reach $20 billion by the end of 2012, a 24 percent increase from 2008, with handbags and neckties the most bullish of the accessories categories. Handbags earned a boost since becoming an "It" item and ties earned a boost thanks to the male population's "increasingly sophisticated fashion sense." Read more at market watch

Is Clothing Tax Back For New York City???

On Tuesday, 12/16 our "blind, crack loving" (as SNL called him) Governor Patterson proposed sales tax on clothing for New York City again. Luxury goods (furs, couture, jewelery, etc.) costing over $20,000 will have a 5% sales tax. Guess I won't be getting my David Yurman ring. Just when you thought it would not affect you he's also trying to bring back the sales tax on clothing and shoes under $110. Instead we'll get 2 sessions one week sales tax free, probably for back to school and the begining of the year. Who elected this man in... oh thats right he's governer by default. Thanks Spitzer. Patterson is almost as bad as Bloomberg.

Fondue For You

la Cave Des Fondus is on my list of places to go next year. This new fondue hotspot opened earlier this month in Soho, NYC. I can't wait to devour the cheese or the chocolate fondue while hanging out at my new local meeting spot for business meetings or chilling with the girls.

MIA Designs Okley Run

I'm sure I'm not only speaking for myself when I say I love Mia's style. Her loud and colorful clothes are just as funky as her rhymes. Eclectic, brave and carefree all-in-one. I must admit, I wasn't too excited (I hate celebrity clothing lines) but very interested to see what she had in store for her new line Okley Run. Feelings: expected, overpriced, unimpressed. Surprisingly it will be carried at Opening Ceremony in NYC or you can buy online at

Inside The Gap

I got a friends and family coupon for the Gap and decided to check out the site since I’ve been avoiding the 34th St. store for a few months now. I was pleasantly surprised to see Trey Songz. His sexy ass remixed Jingle Bellz with FloRider for their latest holiday campaign. It made me stick around to watch all of the other performance by Janelle Monae, Selma Blair (who knew she sings?), We 3 Kings and more… super funny. I strongly encourage you to watch the individual videos at

See some of the Gap's holiday looks:

The New Tuxedo - $171.50

A Party Classic - $137

Perfect Combo - $140

High Drama - $163.50

Black Magic - $166

Life of the Party - $250

Thakoon for Target Go International!

Thakoon designs the next collection for Tarje. I’m not entirely in love with all of the prints. I’m actually a bit surprised Target is doing a “resort” collection in December. At $20 - $70 it’s good to know where to shop when I’m flying south for the winter. (Hey does anyone want to go to MIA???)

Beyonce MTV's Europe Music Awards

Beyonce is killing the game in her dual outfits by Gareth Pugh. The red carpet dress is definitely the most wearable out of the two but I absolutely love the futuristic look with textures and shapes. Thank you Mrs. Knowles for putting it "where?, back there!" and letting someone else give her a new style. I know that wasn't you. Its about time Beyonce takes some risk and start becoming a fashion icon.

Real World Brooklyn

I haven’t watched Real World since The second time they were in New York with Coral, the insecure girl with the caked on make-up and Malik with the fro. I’ve been out of the loop because somehow I stopped caring but mostly because I don’t have cable. I will have to find some way to get back in the game. Real World Brooklyn is coming! The filming in Red Hook is ending this month and the show is schedule to air in May. Can someone be a doll and put all 12 one hour episodes on YouTube for me? Can you believe this is Real Worlds 21st season?! Will someone call me when they are casting for another Europe edition?

We Did It!

I came across this picture yesterday created by the creative director of Grey NYC and today I am proud to say let the issues be the issue. Let us not be worried about the color of someone skin but about what they can do for us. A whopping 94% of people in DC voted for Obama. We did it!
