Notes of a shopaholic

Excellent article on the difference between the fashion industry and the music industry on the question of trying to privatize creativity (although the fashion industry isn't a saint in this regard). I actually made this point in a letter to the Times about two years ago, which they did not print. Thanks to www.myfashionlife.com for this one.

Guy Trebay says fashion is no longer cool. I bet you could find an article on this theme every year for the last twenty-five years. Me, I'd settle for some moderately interesting men's clothes.

Lucky has a guide to shopping for bargains in their new issue (VERY unusual for a fashion magazine) but fortunately they don't mention Yoox. They trying not to encourage a stampede by their readers?

I've been thinking lately about how much less stuff I seem to get at TJMaxx and Marshalls now that I shop a lot on the internet. Besides, it always seems as if they have very little in the way of brands more interesting than, say, Kenneth Cole or DKNY. So I just stopped in there today for a little look-see, and wound up finding a pair of jeans from Paper Denim and Cloth for 39.99. That's a better price than I've seen on Ebay. Fit well, with a kind of interesting front patch pocket design. Also got a black sweater with a fisherman's collar from Kenneth Cole for 16.99. And a striped stretch shirt from Express for 13.99. Especially since there are no delivery costs (admittedly, there is sales tax) hard to beat those prices on the internet.
