Bloomingdales 59th St. Welcomes Revamped Shoe Floor

By Akela Moore

7 years ago Bloomingdales was what I called home. It was my part-time job for a year at the Hackensack, NJ location. The place where I learned about Helmut Lang and Vince and their large Denim area in the contemporary section of the 2nd floor. Next to 59th Street, its one of Bloomingdales oldest locations and since it was so close to Manhattan, there would be tons of designer returns back to that location and they housed a whole department just for NYC returns because they don’t carry some of those brands. So for the past year the 59th Street location has been renovating the 5th floor shoe department and when I say it looks amazing…it looks AMAZING!

Charming Charlie is Closing its Doors and Giving Out 30-50% Off to Customers

By Akela Moore

Last year Amber and I had learned of Charming Charlie as we attended the collaboration party with People Style Watch at their Fifth Ave store in NYC. Well it looks like we will no longer have the opportunity to shop at the store located at 445 Fifth Ave as it is closing its doors. The company is preparing for bankruptcy and made the decision to close a few stores. So being that its the holiday season, turn this closing into great savings on gifts! In store only save 30-50% off everything from jewelry, apparel and handbags to gifts for the home. StyleWatch X Charming Charlie Launch Accessories Collection

Nicole Kidman pays homage to her Aussie roots and poses on the cover for the 1 year anniversary of Stellar Magazine.  (more…)
