Get your Korres on

Korres is changing their packaging. Lucky us, a large selection of products are 1/2 off at their store at 110 Wooster Street, just in time for xmas.

Hot Undies

Did you get your core body temperature read at the human vending machine in Times Square in November? Um, me neither but I was curious about the new HEAT TECHnology line that just launched at Uniqlo in NY. Heat Tech is a new line of thermalesque separates made of rayon and milk proteins that Uniqlo claims to "capture little pillows of toasty air"and keep you warm and dry. Sounds a bit like Patagonia eh? Its a little cheaper.

Who'll need it most?

Rodin Olio Lusso

Always inspired by the innovative Mona Kowalska, I wasn't surprised to discover a new obsession while browsing through her NY boutique, A D├ętacher the other day. Rodin Olio Lusso, a seductive jasmine skin elixer with a mix of 11 botanical oils and floral extracts that soothes your skin and leaves you with a radiant glow. This little heaven in a bottle is also available at John Darian.

Swedish Hasbeens

So I think I found a replacement for my beloved Comme des Garcons sandals that I completely destroyed last summer, Swedish Hasbeens.

Hasbeens will be available at Bird in February! But check out the organic collection by Steven Alan and sustainable gifts at Bird's holiday pop up shop in the burg, 203 Grand Street. The store will be officially opened next year.


If you haven't noticed, very few have designed a cozy winter boot that's not UGGLY. Number 6 has a whole line of shearling lined clog boots. They also sell the coveted line Electric Feathers so get over there!
