WHAT WOULD CALLIOPE WEAR?
Somebody left a suggestion to post Antigone, daughter of Oedipus and Jocasta from the incestuous Greek tragedy Oedipus. But, Oedipus was a little heavy for a Wednesday morning, wouldn’t you say? For those readers who haven’t hit Greek mythology in their required high school reading, just you wait—it’s awesome. As a compromise for this suggestion, I’m posting...
WHAT WOULD CINDERELLA WEAR?
Well, this post has been a long time coming. There have been a lot of requests for Cinderella but I’ve been avoiding it because it’s so, it’s so Disney. Disney is wonderful when you’re a kid, but they actually take classic stories and saccharine-ize them so much that they’re not nearly as entertaining as they should be.

BATHROOMS IN SOHO
One of the biggest annoyances about shopping in SoHo, or anywhere in the city for that matter, is when you have to go to the bathroom. Usually, I’m at least one cup of coffee deep and that urge comes like clockwork. Too much information?

Thanks for all the great suggestions the other day which included Carmen from the famous opera, Carmen. It’s a little bit complicated but let me give you the quick version. Carmen is a gypsy who works in a cigarette factory (DREAM JOB) and falls in love with...
For a character post tomorrow? Lacking inspiration here kids. Check the index for some previous crap?
This past Sunday, a friend and I stopped by the 3.1 Phillip Lim store as we often do. We looked at everything, added some things to our wish lists and headed out. I started discussing that Phillip Lim a tad under-appreciated in New York. If you happen to pass the Mercer St. store, go ahead in and look at everything you can, you’ll appreciate his keen eye for detail—particularly on the...
ELOISE, FROM THE PLAZA
I’ve posted Eloise once before but she’s a fun character so let’s revisit, shall we? She’s perhaps the most uptown of uptown girls having grown up at the Plaza Hotel and we all know what happens to uptown girls when they grow up—they shop like fiends. Without fail, every time I take a spin uptown to Barney’s, Bergdorfs or Saks, they’re out in full force...
