British high street retailer All Saints opened its first stand-alone U.S. stores in Miami and Los Angeles in 2009, and New York's Soho neighborhood is up next. Upon entering the 13,000 square-foot space on Broadway this spring, expect to find exposed brick walls, lots of ram skulls, vintage sewing machines, and a pretty perfect pair of sand-colored desert boots from the current collection.

Attention weekend shoppers! Saturday and Saturday only, you can save a bundle at Bloomingdales in the home department. From towels to mattresses to flatware, take your pick of some gorgeous goods that have been reduced by up to 85 percent. And if you're searching for a good way to waste time after work this afternoon, today's their preview sale. I think I might be heading up Market Street myself to check out the goods at the San Francisco Bloomingdale's . . .
Be a ferocious feline this Summer in lusty animal prints. It's easy to strut fierce in a spotted, sexy one piece or body con two-piece like Aussie designer Myer (left). One thing is sure, these classy and sassy prints are a sure way to perk up your wet getup, so let me hear you R-O-A-R!
We are positively miserable with all the rain that has been plaguing May in New York City. We thought it was April showers that bring May Flowers, not May showers that destroy April flowers with downpours. But the crummy weather continues on in the Big Apple prompting more than a few of us to put our rain boots in heavy rotation. In fact, this spring is seeing more rain boots on cute girls in shorts and little skirts than the cowboy boot epidemic of Williamsburg. Thus we have been idly browsing raincoats, rainboots and umbrellas of all stripes. And no we aren't going to bore you with a round up of our favorite picks, even we get nauseated by this content trick after a while. But we did find a raincoat so compelling (at Bloomingdales, another shocker) we simply had to share. The Echo Polka Dot Trench is a clear trench raincoat with black polka dots made of packable PVC. In other words, you can pop this beauty into your purse and whip it at at a moment's notice without ever hindering the view of the outfit you spent so much time perfecting in the morning. And its on sale for $33. Turns out staid department store shopping can be fun after all!
Bloomie's has just taken off an extra 30 percent from their already reduced handbags, accessories, shoes, and clothes, making for a whopping 45-75 percent off the original prices. We're talking brands like BCBG, MICHAEL Michael Kors, DKNY, Kate Spade, and more.
Once a Nanette Lepore, always a Nanette Lepore girl, I like to say: and this Nanette Lepore Radiant Satin Skirt ($214, originally $305) does anything but change my mind. It's so sophisticated and fun!
The biggest day of the shopping year is here!

The ever-stylish Bloomingdale's is known for its great bargains, and right now, the department store is hosting a big August home sale offering 30 to 50 percent off furniture, bedding, kitchenware, and more. The discounts last from now until Aug. 22 and include luxurious brands like Villeroy & Boch, Ralph Lauren Home, and Orrefors. It's a pretty eclectic selection of goodies, so be sure to wander around the site! Here are my picks from the sale below.
A long time web shopper, I have always been frustrated with Bloomingdales online. I never thought their site emulated the upscale look and selection Bloomies carries. To my surprise, the retailer has made an effort to refresh their face on the web. The new Bloomies has a black background, appears better organized than before, and has a more upscale allure. Check out the homepage:
They have joined other savvy retailers like Fab favorites Neiman Marcus and Net-a-Porter by drawing you in with a beautiful home page. New features include a Designer Spotlight (currently Tory Burch), The Trend Shop, and Spotlight On: Prom (where there are some great frocks!). You can then shop by Designers, Women, Shoes & Handbags, Beauty, Men, Home, Jewelry & Accessories, Kids, Sales & Values, Shop Catalogs, Bridal Registry and Gifts. The photography has improved too; it's not as catalogy and more high fashion.
Big improvements for Bloomingdale's if you ask me, let's hope they keep it coming! In the meantime, to see some of my picks, read more
