I love Gilt Groupe and their sales. My second fav is Rue La La. I don’t like The Top Secret because their site is blah. Gilt is truly high fashion, Rue La La has stuff that you can actually buy because it is easier on the wallet. I wanted to post Alexander McQueen pictures but the sale has ended at Gilt – sob. I love the dark beauty in his clothes, reminds me of old country Wuthering Heights-type of darkness. And I love the subtle structural elements in his skirts.

I came across Josie Natori lingerie. Gorgeous lace camisoles! I love the sexy romantic look of lace in any form.


Now for some rants. The Ports 1961 blouse below is dull and boring, and costs retail $785, sale $218. All the clothes by Ports are dull and boring and ridiculously overpriced. Who buys them? A better (much) cheaper is available on our site.


I hate high-rise pants – they remind me of mommy-jeans. They make a person look much older. Everyone has a version of sailor high-rise – who brought back this style? If a toothpick model cannot look good in them, nobody can.


I like crinkle. It looks good in pictures and on models. But would you really wear the below dress? Doesn’t it look too crumpled, and not in a making-a-fashion-statement-way?


The only dress I like from Ports is the one in white – its romantic and sweet, perfect for a date. But a common style.


Now for shoes. As Carrie Bradshaw said, “I will literally be the old woman who lived in her Choos”! I was reading in Internet Retailer that women spend the most on Handbags (3 times that of clothes), and then on shoes. Wow! No wonder handbags are so expensive. Shoes you can get at big sale prices, not handbags. I love the wedge below from Pour La Victoire. Lovely! And the bootie, and 3 oxfords in snake skin, white, and marroon. I love everything marroon… looks so sophisticated and rich. And I have a soft spot for booties and oxfords. So “tailored” and European. If only they were comfortable!
