LA (AND BEYOND): CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:

Blackburn + Sweetzer posted a multi-sale list today (multi baaalllll; sorry, flashback to Mario Andretti pinball), including Stuart Weitzman event with free Sprinkles Cupcakes like the above.  Very Sex and The City, being a stiletto and all.

"I'm Samantha, I have sex with eeeverybody . . ."—sorry, but has anyone else watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall on HBO lately?  If not, I apologize for the slightly obscure reference.

So, enjoy the sales!  I'll be in Palm Springs (yet again, which is crazy) roasting my ass off in 105 degree heat by the pool, wearing a massively brimmed, floppy, straw sun hat.  And this is a good thing cause my tummy definitely does not need another cupcake to help it grow.

Just kidding, Mom.  I promise not to tan too much.  Umbrellas for me all the way.

Who am I kidding?  My mom never reads this stuff.  I'm going to have to re-live this entire conversation with her over the phone.

Let me try again:

Just kidding, Dad!  I promise not to tan at all or buy another bag because I know (as even a highly evolved man) you really don't understand why we women need so many effing purses.  Oh, and yes, I know, I shouldn't be complaining about my tummy.  Stomach, I mean stomach.  Cause "tummy" probably annoys you as much as "yummy."

Am I right or am I right?

LA/NYC (SALES): CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:

Okay, peeples, it's a Marc by Marc kinda day, which in my book means it's a good one.  Not only is the LA store starting their 40%-off sale aujourd'hui, but Gilt Groupe is hosting a Marc by Marc bonanza online today too, where sweet $450 dresses are now in the vicinity of $168.

What else?  Well, while the LA Rebecca Minkoff sale won't happen until May 15th-17th (at 8213 W. Third Street–Avita's former digs between Milk and Toast) from 10am-7pm ('til 5pm Sunday), the NYC Sample Sale starts TODAY and extends until May 10th at 33 W. 17th Street (between 5th & 6th) from 10am to 8pm. Personally, I'm a totally sucker for her bags.

Also, three cheers for those of us headed to the 100 degree desert this weekend: Barneys Outlets all over all starting their special 50-70%-off sitch tomorrow, as well.  Now maybe I can afford that leather bomber jacket for next fall.  I keep dreaming of it.  Sad.

Poor, poor POCKET LINT.  Oooh.  Double meaning.  Get it?  At least I still got my smarts.  Well.  Kind of.
