Yes, it's allegedly true. Nordstrom Rack is coming to Union Square! My favorite bargain superstore will open sometime in the spring of 2010 right where the Virgin Megastore used to be. As the first Manhattan location of this Seattle-based retail company, fashionistas and bargainistas everywhere will have one more solid store to add to the list that includes Century 21, Filene's Basement, Loehmann's, Marshall's and TJ Maxx. I can't wait for spring!

Is anyone else as excited as I am?

Last week I was at a cute, fairly high-end boutique in Philadelphia. The sales person there had the most adorable shoes on, so I had to compliment her. I was surprised and delighted when she told me she got them from Payless! These Scarlet Fringe Sandals are only $22.95 and come in both black and blue. These Mork Mirrored Sandals are also pretty hot!

Today, Britain's own Topshop finally opens its doors in NYC on Broadway and Broome! Apparently last week they were giving away $500 gift cards on the street (how did I miss that?). I'm going to hit it up today and hope not to get too caught up in the madness.

Last Saturday my boyfriend and I went shopping at The Westchester in NY. We happened upon Martin & Osa, a store I had seen at NorthPark Mall in Dallas but never went into thinking it was not quite my "style." I must say, I was pleasantly surprised.
Here's some background: Martin and Osa is owned by America Eagle Outfitters and is named after Martin and Osa Johnson, Kansas natives and explorers who captured their adventures to remote, exotic locations in films, photography and books in the first half of the 20th century. There is even a safari museum in their honor. The store itself reminded me of a Zara meets Banana Republic meets J Crew. I found it refined without being stuffy and stylish without being too trendy. The quality was high for the prices, too. My boyfriend bought two button down shirts for only $18 a piece! I fell in love with some ankle boots, but unfortunately they didn't have them in my size.
To make things even better, Martin & Osa online has FREE SHIPPING BOTH WAYS (yes, you can return it for free if you don't like it!). Right now you can take an extra 30% off of already reduced merchandise - they're practically giving things away. Here are some of my faves:
