>> Topshop is looking to take on Manhattan... maybe as early as next spring. And the store? It will be just as big as the one at Oxford Circus.
>> Karen Walker? Vena Cava? Jessica Ogden? Adele Clarke? Any of these names ring a bell? If so, proceed. If not, take a look below, and then you'll understand why you're proceeding. Creatures of Comfort is this great little boutique that carries emerging designers, so lots of funkier pieces like high-waisted shorts and puffy cropped jackets. Trust. You will find many things you like. Like I said, just look below.
>> Our favorite chic French boutique Target is sticking with its French roots for another go round of Go International. The new designer, Sophie Albou of Paul and Joe, will debut her collection on August 1, and previews of the looks are already up. I love how my favorite look from each collection is a dress -- the plaid bubble dress from Luella, the colorblock dress from Tara Jarmon, and now the kimono dress from Paul and Joe. What can I say, I've been in a dress kind of mood lately.
>> I love love loved the Balenciaga collection for fall, so in theory I should be happy to see that all the poofy minikirts, the riding hats, the chunky shoes are already everywhere in editorials. The unfortunate part about Balenciaga pushing the fashion editors to use complete looks is that I'm already getting sick of seeing their fall outfits everywhere, because there's no mixing and matching, no creativity to be had. And it's only June.
