Breaking Fashion News: Girlshop.com to Close

In breaking fashion news dear to my heart (full disclosure: I started my career at the site), online boutique innovators Girlshop are packing their bags and closing up shop. A little bird told me that owner Laura Eisman has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. No word yet on whether the Meatpacking District store will close too...

UPDATE: Yes, the Meatpacking District store WILL indeed close. In fact, check out New York Magazine's sale listing here. On a side note, WWD has noted that Girlshop.com is actually NOT in bankruptcy. Instead, Eisman hopes to pay off creditors the majority of the debt that the store owes. Good news for the many small designers that the retailer supported!

Spring Cleaning Your Skin

Regardless of how many beauty products I test in my line of work, I never get tired of trying new, truly innovative products. Enter the Dove SkinVitalizer, a handheld, vibrating (well, hello!) device that cleanses and exfoliates all skin types using Dove's nifty little cleansing pillows.

The SkinVitalizer's gentle vibrations feel a bit odd at first, but successfully lift city grime from skin without irritation. Skin feels soft to the touch and literally glows - what could be better!

Dove's SkinVitalizer retails for $11.99-$14.99 (sold with 6 cleansing pillows) and can be purchased at drugstores nationwide, including Rite Aid and Duane Reade. Refill packs of 14 cleansing pillows retail for approximately $4.49.

Summertime...And the Living's Easy....

Love these jersey pieces from Susana Monaco...so bright and easy for Spring. You know, whenever it actually arrives...I'll be ready!

Ok, so I realize that over the past year+, I've written several posts on Hayden Harnett. Now, before you get suspicious...no, I don't work for the Brooklyn handbag line, I'm just a fan. Their edgy cool designers and utterly luxe leathers make me a very happy gal. And this new Friends of Al tote takes it to the next level.

The cute canvas carryall is a mere $55, $25 of which goes directly to global warming charities. In addition, Hayden Harnett will plant ten trees through American Forests for each tote purchased. Do your part!
