WE WANT CANDY.. Wishlist is celebrating the spooky holiday all weekend, offering 25 percent off your purchase at their stores in Darien, Westport, New Haven and Greenwich. Soothe your trick or treater envy with their yummy selection of bulk candy and check out new arrivals of Genetic denim, BCBG Max Azria party dresses, and fringed Koolaburra boots. We particularly like their namesake branded and extremely festive Jack-o-Lantern tanks, which we plan to be sporting under our boyfriend blazers this weekend.
SALE-R'S DELIGHT... Daylight savings time is just this weekend but Splash of Pink in Westport has already slashed their prices on their Fall Lilly Pulitzer collection. Babies and ladies will enjoy up to 40 percent off seasonal pieces that are still ready to be worn for months in advance. While you're there, check out our girl Eliza B.'s grosgrain ribbon flip flops and the newly arrived Resort 09 collection and already start dreaming of that holiday vacation in the not-so-distant future.
ON THE ROCKS... We love the Ruffian boys and their Miss Porter's meets Margot Tenenbaum clothing line so much that we'd love to take them for a drinks. Even better, we'd like to have those drinks served in their chunky platinum meets crystal cocktail glass Mise en Scene collection for Anthropologie. Mint juleps never looked so good. Find at Anthroplogie in South Windsor, starting at $18.
COFFEE GOES COUTURE... As if that little green and white cup wasn't stylish enough, Project Runway winner Christian Siriano announced this past summer that he'd be teaming up with Starbucks to design a chic and petite gift card in time for the holidays. Images have just now surfaced of the key chain plastic, and yes, it's petite, yes it's chic, and yes it's going to be the coolest latte ready laminate in Starbucks stores when it debuts this month.
AND AGAIN... Online shopping club competition is getting fierce and just today, everybody's favorite 365 newsletter, Daily Candy, dropped the bomb that they were joining the invitation only race as well. Their new shopping site, Swirl, argues that they have the shopping know-how and therefore, the best hand-picked merchandise through their years of boutique name-dropping and newbie designer exposure. Swirl won't be launching until November 16, but they're accepting early e-mail registration online, with just a little bribe that 100 early members will win a $100 gift card.
