As of July 25th, Manhattan will finally feel the presence of our beloved Target! To celebrate its Harlem debut, Target has cooked up yet another fabulous collaboration: this time with Isabel and Ruben Toledo (she designed Michelle Obama’s inauguration day dress)!
You can expect affordable bikinis, dresses, and tees, with 5% of the proceeds going to a non-profit organization of the designer’s choice.
Oh, here’s the address! The store will be in East River Plaza at 116th Street in East Harlem

I recently discovered the newly launched mini-menswear line, Edward, at a preview last week and I had to share it with you immediately. It officially hit racks this weekend, but to actually get your hands on one of the 17 pieces in the collection you’ll have to stop in the cutting-edge menswear boutique Odin in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The boutique’s owners Eddy Chai and Paul Birardi joined up with the Duckie Brown design team, Daniel Silver and Steven Cox, to create the line of simple, tailored separates for men that all retail for under $500. Overall it’s a very strong launch with a great slim-cut peacoat that I suspect will fly out of the store.
Lots of love,
