*SAMPLE SALE* Mendel Breakdown

After yesterday's bustling Club Monaco sample sale, my inner retail therapist said I should slow it down and take it easy. Thankfully enough, the J. Mendel private sample sale was next on my shopping itinerary so I stopped by their calm and collected press preview earlier today. For those in need of glamorous evening outfits (note: it's never too early to start looking for upcoming holiday dresses), here's a brief breakdown of what to expect when the sale opens to my fellow Mizhattanites tomorrow.

*DESIGNER COLLAB* Alexander Wang x H&M Lookbook + Prices

There are sixteen days until the highly anticipated Alexander Wang x H&M Collection hits the Swedish mega chain. Are you ready? As previously seen from last month's ad campaign, there is a strong athletic and urban vibe present throughout the collab. From prominent WANG and AW logos to street chic silhouettes and detailings, this line is filled to the brim with A. Wang's signature stylings. But one thing to be aware of is that prices are noticeably more expensive than what you would normally expect from H&M and their past designer projects. There are quite a many items exceeding the $300 mark. Let's just hope the quality meets the price points when we get to see them in stores on November 6th.

Yes, the fall sample sale season is finally ready to blossom and I decided to begin my much needed week-long retail therapy at Club Monaco.

So grab your wallet and find out what kind of Club perks you're entitled to this week at the Club Monaco sample sale.

*SUNDAY WINDOW SHOPPING* Tiffany, Gucci & Prada (Oct. '14)

If you haven't had a chance to peek through Tiffany & Co.'s windows, you simply must! The American jewelry house turned their Fifth Avenue flagship windows into a miniature art museum to present their new Tiffany T Collection. Each item looks like an art masterpiece on display. The whole visual is extraordinary. And while I have your attention, I also took a few snapshots from two of Fifth Avenue's big shots, Gucci and Prada. Hope you enjoy!
