If you live in the US and still have some spare change left (are you drowning in sale overload like I am?), be sure to check out the sale at Topman. Topman rocks because it's one of the very few places where I, a teeny, tiny, petite, slim, lithe little person, can get menswear at amazing prices.
Meanwhile, don't fret if you live outside the USA. Click HERE for the international site.
I'd visit the sale NOW if I were you. There are tons of greedy, brutal and ruthless queens out there who are out for blood. The fight for XS sizes ain't pretty.

Roberto Cavalli Jewelry
One of the things I've learned over the years is that some of the best things to buy on sale are things that you can see yourself use over and over and over for years to come: jewelry, shoes or clothing "classics" (such as cashmere sweaters, shirts) etc.
I'm currently browsing the Vivre sale… and I'm loving these bits and baubles from Roberto Cavalli.
Roberto Cavalli cabochon octopus rings ($335 now $164) with turquoise or amethyst, enamel serpent bracelets ($350 now $98), bi-color enamel snake bracelets ($455 now $159) in blue, orange or yellow, crystal-studded jeweled snake bracelets ($435 now $121), bi-color enamel and crystal snake rings ($255 now $71), elephant head bracelet ($700 now $280).
Click HERE to visit the Vivre sale. They have little nifty things from Kenneth Jay Lane, Erickson Beamon and more!

It's 5AM on Boxing Day. I know I should be sleeping but here I am, trolling away online, hopping from one online store to another. It's sale season once more so if you haven't maxed out your plastic buying other people nice Christmas gifts (who, in return, will give you something ridiculous like socks, mugs or calendars), well, I invite you to check out some noteworthy stores with amazing markdowns. Go ahead and treat yourself!
London luxury emporium Browns has an amazing selection of Balenciaga and Lanvin pieces.
Net-a-Porter is on SALE on their US/Americas site so if you live in the US, Canada, Mexico and South America, be sure to check it out.
My personal favourite is Shopbop. FREE shipping worldwide! They have tons of Alexander Wang at 50% off.
As far as I'm concerned, I'm only window-shopping. I'm broke.
Like the old saying goes, just because you're on a diet it doesn't mean you can't look at the menu.

Free Shipping at Oki-ni!
I know I love womenswear and most of my readers are females but here's something for the guys, gays and anyone who's got a third leg. I got this flyer via email and I thought I'd share it to you. Men's superstore Oki-ni is offering FREE worldwide shipping on ALL orders, including sale items. Just click the graphic below and you'll be redirected to their site.
Oki-ni is pretty much the male version of Net-a-Porter. No other online men's store have the same scope of brands that they carry. They have everything from Adidas to Alexander McQueen, cult brands like Bernhard Willhelm and Damir Doma, to premiere labels like Maison Martin Margiela, Jil Sander, Rick Owens and Raf Simons. Run, don't walk, run!

I've Got Nothing to Wear Notebook
Some of my older readers should know by now that I'm a big fan of Smythson of Bond Street. Remember the Little Black Book I kept from many, many years ago?
I was just browsing their website now and I saw this cheeky "I've Got Nothing to Wear" notebook from their Malachite collection.
At £57 each, they're gonna make a lovely (albeit pricey) stocking stuffer this holiday season. Go!

Genius MousePen i608 Graphic Tablet for Creative Painting
The Genius MousePen i608 Graphic Tablet is available for around US$65. Let’s see if I’m gonna be able to get my money’s worth over the next few weeks. Surely I can do better than juvenile scribbles, doodles and stick figures…

You get what you paid for.
The highly-controversial oversized fox fur collar I ordered from China arrived last week. TBH, I don’t know what to call it. Scarf? I dunno. I can’t call it a wrap or a shawl either because it’s too small to be a wrap. Not sure about collar because it’s too big to be a collar. Whatevs.
As I’ve previously mentioned, I got it in black because it’s a classic.
