Weekend shopping
Yikes, kids, I've been ridiculously busy today! What is it about Fridays? Anyway, without further ado, some shopping ideas for the weekend...

Bloomingdales is having a home sale Saturday only. Check out a preview here (at your own risk--the website is a clunker), or go to the store (highly recommended).

Banana Republic is having a 30% off sale. I like these pants, this sweater (good for the gals who are lacking in the boob department), and these cute ballet shoes, which are quite trendy right now.

Loehmann's has a new shipment of designer goodies: Clothes from Dolce & Gabbana, Vivienne Westwood, Moschino, Valentino, and more Italians; and accessories from Christian Dior, Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole, Via Spiga, and others. Clearance merchandise is an extra 20% off, but unless you have three hours to kill, I'd recommend skipping those racks.

For the peeps in Queens: Today Sephora is opening a new store at 71-30 Austin Street in Forest Hills.

If you spend $50 at Lancome.com, enter code HOLIDAYTREATS at checkout and get the following gift with purchase (hooray for gift with purchase!): Sample-size Definicils mascara in Black, Rouge Absolu Creme lipstick in Port Glace (a brownish red color), Maquiriche Quad (um, that would be eyeshadow) in Honeymoon, Coquille, Noix, and Rustique (all neutral brownish shades), and a pot of Resolution D-Contraxol (i.e., fancy wrinkle cream).

Need some posters? Enter code C209133682416 at Art.com for 20% off.

My friend Kate is in town this weekend, so I get to take her shopping. Woo-hoo! Expect a full report on Monday.
