H&M to Collaborate with Marni for Spring

29 Nov

H&M just announced, on the heels of the Versace launch, its latest collaboration. And once again, the retailer is turning to Italy, with Marni. Expected to be filled with colorful prints and patterns, the press release also seems to imply it may be more affordable than the Versace collection.

The best sneak peek is from the picture to the left. We’ll have to wait for the look book and prices. But Consuelo Castiglioni, Marni’s founder and creative director gives some hints in the press release.

“I wanted to create a true Marni wardrobe by revisiting all our favorite pieces
in signature fabrics and prints,” she says. “As always, I love juxtaposing prints and colours, mixing modern tribal with Bauhaus graphic adding sporty
utilitarian elements.”

That press release continues:

“Marni’s collection for H&M has all the freedom and experimentation for which the label is renowned, with all-over prints in strong colours all intended to be worn together in layers that both match and clash. For women, the colours are vivid and the prints are bold, be they African inspired or simpler colour blocks. The silhouettes are all Marni staples, with full pleated skirts, dresses, cropped trousers and Jacquard knit, and fabrics range from silk to crisp cotton poplin. To finish the complete look the collection also includes jewelry, shoes, bags and scarves.”

Look for the collection to hit stores March 8.

My Favorite Cyber Monday Specials (So Far)

26 Nov

Sporto's The Wendy

One reason it’s stupid to go in-store to shop this week (or the next few weeks) is that you can actually get some better deals online. And two of my favorite online shopping sites, ASOS and Piperlime, are offering 20% off at checkout with special codes. At Piperlime, be sure to get everything you want in one order because you can only use the code TWENTY once! Also, it doesn’t apply to gift wrapping, gift cards or the following brands: Frye, Hunter, Rag & Bone, Fossil, Stuart Weitzman and The North Face. But that does mean you can get those Sorel Tofino™ or Joan of Arctic™ boots you’ve been pining for (like I have) at 20% off of $140. I’m actually going to order Sporto’s equally cool version of the Tofino™: The Wendy. (I need a good pair of snow boots because when you’re a TV reporter, you never know how many hours you’ll be reporting in a snowstorm for!) It’s priced at $89.95 at DSW, and you can get $15 off with the code CYBER and free shipping with the code SHIPR. (You do have to become a “Rewards Member,” but that’s free. And the more you shop, the closer you get to freebies.) There are fewer restrictions at ASOS: You can use the codes HAPPYBLACKFRIDAY or BLACKFRIDAY2011 multiple times–even on sale items; orders just cannot exceed $890. Both ASOS and Piperlime offer free shipping on orders and returns. So shop now and have second thoughts later, as all the deals expire at 11:59 p.m. Monday.

Leave It to Sam

24 Nov

Not me. Sam’s Club, that is (I’ll get to that in a bit). I’m technically on vacation, but I had to put in my two cents on Black Friday.

Courtesy: Sam's Club

You are absolutely crazy if you wait in the cold at midnight, even at Target, for a deal. My advice: Don’t even wait for Cyber Monday; make this Friday “Cyber Friday.”

There are so many options out there (I mentioned Loehmanns.com last week). It seems most people wait for those doorbuster deals to buy deeply discounted electronics. Still not worth it to me. First of all, with eBay, you can find great deals on new products–not necessarily used. And many electronics vendors on eBay accept returns. You may just need to do your own wrapping (which I suggest doing to save money anyway).

Next, if you’re a member of Sam’s Club, snapping up deals on all-things tech is easy. The megastore has an iPad® app and mobile app you can use starting November 27. Grab big screen HDTVs and electronics to diamond jewelry and toys. For example: One deal is a Magnavox 32-inch LCD 720p HDTV for $248.88 (and includes free shipping). Of course you must be a member, but I think any of those warehouse clubs are worth it (if you have the room or can split your spoils among friends).

Between now and the holidays, I’ll have some more ideas to save money, so stay tuned and have a happy and a healthy Thanksgiving!

 

The Back Room at Your Fingertips

18 Nov

I’ve been chomping at the bit to write this post, and I can finally give you the details on the new Loehmanns.com! First of all, it is one-of-a-kind, meaning no flash sales. Other designer discount stores don’t even let you buy online, and Century 21 holds flash sales on stuff you could find in an Annie Sez (no disrespect to them, but I’m just saying). But think Halston, Missoni and BCBG). And they are all now at your fingertips, every day! The fabulous Back Room is online at the new Loehmanns.com!

So, as easy as it is to shop in the stores, where everything is beautifully organized by designer (not like other stores where you have to dig and have a keen eye), you can get the same experience online.

Like the site’s editor-in-chief, Steve Cusumano, told me, “Like the stores, we hope to convey the fun in shopping and the thrill of finding the unexpected.”

What you can expect, however, is the merchandise to be replenished even more often than in the stores–and you will find, as I said, the same great looks online as in Loehmann’s stores.

But what’s also exciting is that it will be a source for all-things fashion: shoppers can share their stories about the great deals they find. And there will experts, style icons, journalists and bloggers to help you find the perfect pieces so you can put together an amazing, affordable, wardrobe.

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday approaching, don’t wait in line at any store at midnight. I would hit Loehmanns.com from the comfort of your own home–it is open for business 24/7. Sign up for the site to see all the deals available (it’s a must to access the Back Room).

 

 

 

 

Get Your Red Soles On

11 Nov

So, I know I’ve been delinquent with my posting this week because, contrary to popular belief, cops being shot, students being beaten up, possible utility rate hikes after an October snowstorm that took those utilities days to restore power and left many in the cold, are more important than fashion and bargains. Those are just some of the stories I covered in my day job this week.

With that being said, thanks to Mizhattan for the heads up that the Christian Louboutin sample sale starts Tuesday, but it’s invite-only. She says your best chance for getting in is trying on Friday, although it will not guaranty entry. And according to Madison Avenue Spy, it actually starts today for VIPs. I have to admire Madison Avenue spy for the following:

“Mizhattan writes, “Furthermore, for those expecting a full Mizhattan report, please note that out of respect for Louboutin’s privacy, I will not be covering this event.” Truth is that the Christian Louboutin PR reps offer bloggers invites only if they promise NOT to cover the sale. We say, keep your invite. We have readers to inform!”

I don’t know if I would be so noble! And I must add, the rich and famous always get free and can afford full price, so why not let your average fashionista enjoy for a change, right? Anyway, still I had to share this information even though it came second-hand (nothing wrong with that!). Thank you to both (they have great blogs!)

Christian Louboutin Sample Sale, 306 West 38th Street, November 11 through November 18, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Goodbye Syms and Filene’s Basement

3 Nov

Courtesy: Yusuf C

I must thank my friend and Sarah Palin expert and author Shushannah Walshe for tweeting this info via The Washington Post. RIP Filene’s Basement and Syms. Filene’s Basement is one discount store I don’t like, and haven’t liked since I visited the original basement in Downtown Boston. Syms, which I do like, bought it out of bankruptcy but apparently could not revive it. So, while “An Educated Consumer Is Our Best Customer” was the tagline of Sy Syms’ long-running ad campaign, apparently the Syms family wasn’t educated enough to know that the chain they bought was beneath them (in my opinion). Now I don’t know the details– whether it was Filene’s sales that brought the company down or the two combined–but I’ve found Missoni and Krizia pieces at Syms, while Filene’s was selling crap. By crap, I mean brands you could buy in discount department stores like Sears, Kohl’s and jcpenney (which, as I’ve mentioned before, sell some great lower-priced lines from great designers, although I never mentioned the $14.99 I ♥ Ronson blazer I got at jcpenney–that’s how they are spelling it these days). It was basically akin to Burlington Coat Factory. (Blah!)

The one positive: It means there will be a liquidation sale. And that information comes straight from a message Marcy Syms posted on the company’s Web site. Yes, Syms suits were irregular, but they were from many of the best designers–and they did alterations! What discount store does alterations?! (If anyone knows, let me know.) So while I don’t mourn Filene’s passing, Syms–the commercials that ran throughout my childhood, the hours spent combing the racks for just a few gems–I do mourn. To see Marcy Syms’ statememt, click here.

I wonder if another store could hold a “Running of the Brides” for wedding dresses like Filene’s Basement did. If you’ve ever seen that on the news, those were crazy. I wasn’t planning on getting mine that way, though (although I will try to find a deal in a more civilized fashion).

Now I wonder what will take its place on that prime Upper West Side corner of 79th Street and Broadway, its location in Union Square or even its space in the Bergen Town Center (home to so many fabulous department store outlets).

On a side note, I have taken my day job as a television reporter up again, so, I apologize in advance for posting less frequently, but I will keep trying to help you live life fully without paying full price. However, in the name of shameless self-promotion, if you live in New Jersey and have FiOS, be sure to watch me every weeknight on FiOS 1.
