*SAMPLE SALE* A Search through Burch

If you haven't noticed, Tory Burch is quite busy these days running her multi-billion dollar fashion empire. Her eponymous label is continually expanding and, as such, has just opened up their first boutique in Paris. In addition, the designer is preparing for the launch of her new activewear line next month. And to make things even busier, the company is hosting yet another sample sale this summer (this is number 3!). Having found only disappointment at last week's Bottega Veneta sample sale, I decided to try my luck at this two-day event so I headed over to the Metropolitan Pavilion to search through Burch this morning.

ALERT: Mansur Gavriel Price Increase

Well, this is disappointing. Mansur Gavriel, the fashion world's retail sensation, is restocking their online shop today and there are major markups on their bags that shoppers should be aware of. For starters, the brand's signature buckets have gone up $100 more (yes, that's two zeros) while mini-sized versions are now $35 more. In addition, large and small totes are also up $100 while backpacks have increased $50~$90 depending on the size. The increase might not seem like much on first inspection but the beauty of this wildly successful brand was that the company used to offer accessible price points--most of their well-structured handbags came in under the $500 mark--so a $35 to $100 hike is substantial to say the least. Seeing Mansur Gavriel quietly treading towards luxury market prices is unfortunate but, by the looks of things, I guess it's inevitable. What a bummer...

*SUNDAY WINDOW SHOPPING* Madison Ave. (July '15)

Look everyone, Dolce & Gabbana is in full bloom! While walking along posh Madison Avenue, I stopped in front of the Italian brand's Upper East store and took notice of their giant flower sculpture. The oversized centerpiece made up of roses, daisies, and lilacs looked so colorful and showy, they were the perfect complement to the dresses in the window. In addition to Dolce & Gabbana, photos of other boutiques on Madison Ave await for you past the break.
