Watch Out, Here Comes Uniqlo

The Japanese retail chain has opened it first U.S. store in SOHO New York. Uniqlo has over 700 stores in Japan. The new flagship store NYC offers a wide array of hip clothing - including floor to ceiling stacks of cashmere sweaters in every color. The store combines HM style and prices with a clean Japanese store ascetic. I checked out the store myself and I am dying to go back when I have time to try things on. One thing is for sure, Uniqlo will offer some much needed international flare to the U.S. mass clothing market.

The Ugg Boot: So Yesterday?

These went out of style in what 2004? But there is still something endearing dare I say timeless about these cozy little shearling boots. Every once in a while I will come across someone in New York and say "Doesn't she look cozy in her Ugg boots?", however the next thing that enters my mind is visions of teenagers shopping at Fred Segel in LA in mini skirts and Uggs. Gross! Apparently though I am not the only one with Ugg's on my mind. I had my eye on these little darlings in Gray at American Eagle Outfitters and they are already sold out.

The true UGG company has opened its first store (in New York of course!)
