About Me

My photo
I have always loved everything related with Fashion and in the last 5-10 years I have become even more interested in how fashion and technology can work together. In 2004 I started a web site selling designer bags and apparel for less, and in 2008 I took some time off to have kids. I have now launched the first ever NYC sample Sale APP that notifies the user of any and all sample sales/major retail sales within 1 mile of the user's location. User's can let the APP tell them where they can save up to 80% on all their favorite brands like, Prada, Fendi, DVF, Theory and so much more.

Versace for H&M

Is this a serious trend now all the major high fashion brands are doing collections for these huge chains that reach the masses? Who started this trend was it H&M or what? So what do you think of the Versace line do you think it will sell as well as the Missoni for target?

The collection will be available in the US November 19th and the prices will range from $19.95 costume jewelry up to $299 for a leather jacket. Some of the pieces are iconic Versace like the bright vibrant colors with gold accents to the daring cuts. For the first time this collection will also include home decor, there will be pillows priced at $29.95 and $39.95 and bedspreads at $149.

What do you think? Would you buy anything?

Great Fall pieces from J. Crew

Last weekend I went to J. Crew to use a gift card I got from my mom for my birthday. The gift card was $150 but man did I spend way more than that. I just fell in love with all the bold colors they had on display right as you walked in the door. I love the royal blue leather gloves, the gorgeous sleek tan leather clutches and the beautiful heels in colors like, deep pink, royal blue, and nude to name a few. I resisted my temptation to buy yet another bag so I purchased the pink pumps and then started picking up pieces to go with the shoes. I love the red silky sleeveless top paired with the high-waisted skinny jeans. The shoes also look great with the navy silk skirt and the red sleeveless top. I also almost got the green silky long sleeve top as I think it would look great with skinny jeans or even the cute capri pants J. Crew has in a variety of colors.

What J. Crew pieces do you love?

I have been gone for a long time, but have been quiet busy.  My partner and I, Pegy Brimhall, with the help of a great developer and designer have actually developed an APP!  This will be, if not the first, one of the first sample sale mobile APPS which will feature the new iOS5 technology from Apple.  Other sample sale APP's do not feature this new technology or the capability to track the user's location while simultaneously linking all sample sales to their location.  No more searching on safari for the website or for the sample sale address all you have to do is turn on your Iphone and as you strut down the NYC streets you will receive notifications of all sales in your immediate location.  By downloading this APP you will never miss a chance to save up to 80% off of designer brands such as, Theory, Diane Von Furstenburg, Tory Burch,  Helmut Lang and many more.
