It’s a rainy, kind of weird Saturday so I took to the interwebs and visited some of my old retail friends. As per usual, I floated over to Jack Spade who I’ve sorely neglected these past few weeks since I started the new job. Of course, now that I no longer enjoy an employee discount, it’s not so easy to grab a few things here and there. Nevertheless, look at this stuff…at long last Aaron Levine’s (formerly of Rogues Gallery) product has hit the store and if I weren’t moving in a week, I’d blow every last cent on it. Of course it should be noted that the leather goods and bags are the work of their talented bag designer, Britt Kleinman. She owns.

There are a few things in the city that let you know it’s the holidays—there’s the Rockefeller Center tree, the snowflakes on Saks and those Santa guys but I don’t think I enjoy any of them half as much as I enjoy the windows at Bergdorf Goodman. Take a look at this video they just put up, so good.
A couple weeks ago I got a package from Threadless. I’ve been a fan of Threadless for some time, they basically give anybody the chance to have their design produced on a t-shirt. Users upload designs, the community votes and the winners get a chunk of cash and bragging rights. They recently launched a line called “Threadless Select" that are community designs produced on higher quality fabrics and chosen by their staff.
I copped the above, for some reason it reminded me of The Goonies and I couldn’t resist. It’s nice and soft, good for layering and definitely a little more fitted than their traditional pieces. The t’s run at $35.00 each, take a look. Be sure to set up your own profile too, if your design gets voted by the community and printed you get $2000.00 and a $500 gift card…WOOT.
