After much thought and consideration, I have decided to write this farewell letter. Whether you recently discovered this website or have been following since the beginning, I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for making this humble site a part of your daily read. What started out as a hobby on a whim because of my love for fashion and shopping turned into a great joy, passion, and labor of love for me. Without a doubt, it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. To keep our memories alive (oh, what fun we had!) and in case of any future possibilities, I will keep Mizhattan online indefinitely and my inbox will always be open to all of you.
Thank you so very much for sharing in seven of the most incredible years of my life. I will miss you dearly.
The half century old American fast fashion chain The Limited (known for their insane sample sale) is shuttering their business. WWD reported late last month that the mall-based retailer was seeking a buyer in hopes of getting out of their financial troubles, but now it looks like their days are limited. The company closed down their Roosevelt Field location yesterday and will wind down business at their remaining stores come January. For bargain hunters looking to gobble up liquidation discounts, you will have to wait a little longer until their online markdowns drop. Currently, the site is only offering 50% off.
Without such creative window showcases lighting up the streets of Manhattan, the city would be one boring place, don't you agree? Whether it be department stores or designer boutiques, peeking at and photographing eye-catching displays is one of my favorite activities and I love sharing them with you. Here are my favorite five of 2016.
As we near 2017, let's take a moment and look back at some of the articles published on Mizhattan this year. From Givenchy's Woodbury outlet opening to a fashion feature on Club Monaco's autumn knits, meet the top 10 most-read stories of 2016.
Out of the 121 sample sales that I checked out and reviewed this year, there were some good, some bad, and some that were downright ugly. From yearly pandemoniums like Diptyque and Hermès to notable newcomers like Cire Trudon and Mac Cosmetics (and let's not forget the welcome return of Alexander Wang and DVF), 2016 was filled with commotion and surprises. Want to see who else made the list this year? Here is Mizhattan's Year in Review: The 10 Most Memorable Sample Sales of 2016.
