Sales! It’s that time of year again when retailers gear up for holiday shopping. What’s different about this year is that retailers are having black friday deals early to entice customers to shop all month long, and not just Black Friday–or Black Thursday as it should be called from now on. Many department stores like Target, Walmart, Macy’s and Kohl’s will open up between 6-8pm. So you can walk off that food coma in the department store aisles. If you’re feeling really ambitious, you should head out to Old Navy; they open at 9am on Thanksgiving day!
However, if you’re like me and don’t want to bother with all of the crowds but still want all of your favorite designer clothes, shoes, and accessories on sale (yes I said on sale) then you need to check out Nordstrom’s Women and children’s half yearly sale! Designers like Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Vince Camuto, Tory Burch, Trina Turk, and Burberry have select items up to 40% off. If shoes, and and handbags are your thing, then this is the sale for you! Sam Edelman, Dolce Vita, Coach, Diane von Furstenburg, and everyone’s favorite Frye boots are some of the featured designer shoe and handbags with discounts.
My favorite part of the sale? The jewelry of course! I snagged this gold letterpress Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace, and House of Harlow sunburst necklace–both 50% off regular price! The half yearly sale is constantly changing so be sure to check back to see what else has been added!
Tweed has been popping up here and there in the fashion mags and on the celebs for the past few months, and I kinda like it! Originally, I just reserved tweed for Elle Woods and those attending law school, but tweed is actually quite functional; there’s a way to fit it into your outfit, no matter your style. A tweed blazer and jeans is a trademark of fall fashion after all!
Christopher Burch has filed a lawsuit against designer Tory Burch, his ex-wife. The problem seems to revolve around the fact that Christopher wants to sell his stake in Tory Burch LLC, and Tory isn’t making it easy. Allegedly she has hijacked Chris in his attempts to sell his stake. Rumors are swirling that Tory wants to sue her ex-husband over trade dress infringement or usurpation of corporate opportunity. Chris and Tory each own 28.3 percent of the company.
According to WWD, Chris filed a “6-point complaint against his ex-wife, her business, and ‘individual board members of Tory Burch and Isla Capital, a subsidiary of a Mexican private equity firm that took a stake in Tory Burch in 2009.'” Phew! Basically it’s a battle of the exes and there’s a whole lot of moolah at stake. Rule of thumb: never go into business with someone you might end up divorcing. It’s just not a good idea.
