ABC’s The View to become Home Shopping Club?

View MONDAY SALES FILEminimizer ABCs The View to become Home Shopping Club?

ABC’s The View announces flash sales are coming on Monday.

I’ve been home sick this week, doing stuff I don’t normally do, like watching ABC’s talk show The View.  To my amazement, moderator Whoopi Goldberg announced yesterday, in best Bob Barker “The Price is Right” banter that “The View” is now going to offer shopping.  And not just for women’s fashions, but for electronics and home goods.  Ms. Goldberg rattled off an extensive list of marketing rot about exactly the items this boring show will now be putting up for sale.   Rosie O’Donnell followed up by asking what every viewer was probably thinking–is this The View or the Home Shopping Network? Here’s what Rosie said. Continue reading »

H&M and designer Alexander Wang previewed their new collaboration on runway at the Fort Washington Avenue Armory in New York City.  The entire show was livestreamed on HM.com and you can watch the replay on  of the Alexander Wang X H&M show at your leisure via the web.  I watched the show from Los Angeles and read about it in The Guardian this morning. To be honest, I’m not feeling this collection.   It’s a cross between bondage gear, athletic wear and what Jezebel calls “funky scuba wear.”   Personally, I don’t want to dress like a funky scuba diver, so I don’t think I’m going to line up for this one.   Read on for more pictures from the preview.

My Fall Fashion Staple: Levi’s dENiZEN Jeans at Target

For the last two months, I’ve been on the road traveling.  From New York City, to Las Vegas, to Los Angeles to Monterey, there’s been one staple in my wardrobe: Levi’s dENiZEN Jeans.   I purchased these jeans at my local Target for under $30.00.  Best of all, a few months ago, I bought a pair of skinny Levi’s dENiZEN skinny jeans (curvy style) and a pair of boot cut Levi’s dENiZEN during a Target “Buy 1, get 1 for 50% off” special.  I love both pairs and have been taking them everywhere.  Back in my 20’s I wore a lot of Levi’s, from the unforgiving 501’s to the super tight skinny jeans.  Back then, I used to wash the jeans and dry the jeans in the dryer on high heat to make them super form fitting and then lay on the bed to zip them up, or jump into them on the floor.  Thank god those days are gone!  Now, with the the Levi’s dENiZEN jeans I can simply pull my jeans on– the dENiZEN jeans have stretch in them so they are easy on, and easy to wear all day.

vente-privee

Long before there was Gilt Groupe or ideeli, there was French e-commerce designer flash sales website vente-privee. vente-privee translates as private sale in French.   vente-privee started in France in 2001 offering European consumers a way to buy top designers at affordable prices. In 2011, vente-privee opened its website to customers in the United States.   Since expanding to the US, the brand has partnered with American Express to build a loyal membership base.  So how does this e-tailer offer deals on coveted brands like Victoria Beckham, Rachel Zoe, Love Moschino and many more at up to 70% off of retail prices?
