Its about time! Mary-Kate and Ashley are launching a higher end clothing line! It's called The Row and it will be available at barneys, the prices will range from $150-$850, And WE cant wait to get our hands on at least a couple of their items! we've been HUGE fans of these savvy sisters for years, there's a diminutive amount of aspects we don't relish about them, with their fashion sense high on our list.:) We have always dreamed of something like this to happen...But lets face it, Wall-mart isn't really our thing... The name "The Row" was inspired by Savile row, the famous London street, known for their timeless tailoring, its a pretty relevant name considering their lines rudiment piece is that of a silky, slouchy tee-shirt that is practically seamless, with only one French seam that runs down the back, this technique has only been heard of for making high-end couture pieces. these stylish sisters with a point of view can accomplish anything they put there mind to.

Topshop is a ritual for any fashionable brit, its a pretty affordable shop with chic and trendy finds... but they have launched a higher-priced collection available in limited quantities. the Biba-esque Art Deco theme is amazing full of fit-and-flare dresses and coats with perked-up shoulders and belled sleeves, cardigans and vests, and the cool geometric prints on satin, everything is quite pleasing. The best part of the show was the pair of high-waisted black flared denims with deep, shoe-covering cuffs, genius to say the least! they'll be ordering these up in bulk overnight!
If you live or you're just visiting New York, don't forget about Brooklyn, for great restaurants, cinematic coffee shops, and wonderful shopping. Sometimes an escape from Manhattan can be nice, while still getting a dose of what the great city has to offer, but with more of a small town feel.Brooklyn is where the young creative types go for some peace and quiet. The funky picturesque brown-stone neighbor hoods of Clinton Hill,Fort Greene,Atlantic avenue, Williamsburg, and park slope have alot to offer.
here are some of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn...
Ici, in Fort Greene:A great deal for organic and very fresh French cuisine. named one of the top 5 restaurants in Brooklyn. very affordable, a one of a kind only in Brooklyn!
Jolie, on Atlantic avenue: also French food, a very authentic taste of a typical parissienne cafe, with a beautiful garden patio in the back, its a lovely choice for a spring brunch get together.
Moutarde, on 5th avenue in park slope: also French(what can we say we have a penchant for French cuisine. moutarde meaning mustard has a great diner menu and a cool collection of antique French mustard jars around the space.
chip shop:this British invasion is in park slope. this fish and chip shop is a fun eclectic restaurant. their fried candy bars and twinkies are enough to drive one to this 60's style British pop decored joint. as well as their infamous fatty fried candy bars they have great English trifles Shepard pies fish and chips and various fried delectables:)

Anna Sui explained that her inspiration for her spring collection was drawn from looking at pre-Pop Andy Warhol and other commercial artists,and interiors such as Victorian arm chairs and other furniture pieces inspiring silk charmeuse dresses. we really liked the whimsical feel of this collection. and the various hats and hoods, it was like a spunky Marie Antoinette!
