The week in shopping
Sorry about the lack of postings on Friday; I had a wicked hangover and spent most of the day sleeping on the Love Sac at work, trying not to barf, and bemoaning my cruel, cruel fate. But I did manage to pull myself together and check out the new Soho Bloomindale's (I'll post on that shortly). In the meantime, this week's sales...
