Awesome find at MYHABIT today. Flash find sale for Black Friday! I just checked out the cashmere collection and that looked pretty sweet.

It seems that it’s been a while since I have written anything here… Personally I have been tweeting far more than I have been doing fashion blogging, but maybe this would be a good time to start new…
Or at least, fresh and so clean.
Look for more fun men’s articles coming soon!
I know what you’re thinking: Kohl’s… Really? Actually, yes. As much as I hate to say it, they do have some nice select menswear that’s very feasible and cost-effective for those on a budget.
In addition to its already lower prices (in comparison to say, Nordstrom or Macy’s), Kohl’s is having an extra 20% off everything sale. This sale is available in store, online or at their kiosk.

Reuters reported that Prada’s IPO have generated 5x the demand for its original offer, valuing somewhere between $11 billion and $14 billion. Their IPO’s reach will most likely be within the Asian market, where they have recently established retail expansion in China. Their hope is to generate larger revenue, profit, and brand exposure within the Asian market to increase their IPO stature and lure investors into investing in their company.

In my humble opinion, while I think the “Prada” brand is fantastic, it doesn’t seem to appeal well with higher middle class and/or lower upper class in terms of affordability. I think Gucci and Coach have been more accessible (and growing) for those that can spend the cash for their products, at least within the United States. I don’t really see Prada in that range, which I think is unfortunate.
