Outside John Lawrence Sullivan Fall/Winter 2009

How funny. A few people have been asking me whether this trench is from Lanvin and I’m always like “uh no, not Lanvin, I don’t have money for Lanvin…. it’s from the friggin’ GAP!”

Speaking of Lanvin, OMG you guys, remember the leopard-print clutch I’ve been lusting for weeks now? Well, I went to this super cool and super luxxe store in Tokyo called RESTIR. Anyway, I saw a beautiul silk Lanvin trench in the same Spring 2009 leopard print but guess how much was it… 658,000 yen or about US$6,600. For a plain silk trench, no embroidery or beadwork, just plain, plain, plain lightweight silk trench coat. I’m no stranger to sticker shock but man, that was really scary.

How could you do this to Suzy Menkes?

Another website bites the dust! Am I the only one mourning the loss of the International Herald Tribune website now that it's gone
off teh interwebs? Suzy's former IHT Style section is now on the New York
Times site under "Global Style".

I know the NY Times owns the IHT hence the brand spanking new merged (yeah right) homepage but aren't y'all curious how things are gonna work over at NY Times/IHT? It seems that all the heavyweights are there, fighting for precious pageviews.
