Daily digest
WWD: Limited Inc. plans to exploit my dear neighborhood pharmacy, Bigelow Apothecary, by opening one in every mall in America; I still can't afford to shop at the revamped Chanel 57th Street store; because you don't spend enough money in Vegas already, the Forum Shops at Caesar's have been expanded; WWD bitch-slaps the New York Times right back; coming soon, Pucci ski-wear; H&M's new 59th & Lex store opens Friday; and Chicago designer Maria Pinto is returning to designing.

IHT: Love it or hate it, fur is back.

NYO: In what sounds like the best idea ever, brides are exchanging registry gifts for clothes at department stores; and, somewhat off topic but still noteworthy, the Secret Rich of Manhattan.

VV: A shining example of why I love Lynn Yaeger, she totally goes against the fashion-critic grain and pans every major European collection that was praised by pretty much everyone else. Love it!

The Daily: Sexy Brazilian lingerie (as opposed to non-sexy Brazilian anything); Giacomo Santucci is definitely out at Gucci; what the Juicy Couture gals really wear; in praise of Gustavo Arrango; and a special-edition Diptyque candle (love Diptyque).

Go Fug Yourself: The fugliest shoes ever (no, surprisingly, not Uggs).

Style.com: Soundbites from the shows; Sally Singer picks the best shows, but, inexplicably, she included YSL; Proenza Schouler win big at the first Vogue/CFDA fashion fund awards; a perplexing jacket/sweater; and firming products for the busty gals.

Elle.com: Glam accessories and more in the shopping guide; and I'm sure fashionistas everywhere are weeping tears of joy over Lanvin handbags.
