    Today is the last day of the week long Tory Burch sample sale happening at 261 W. 36th street-2nd floor. We can't tell you how it is because we haven't nor won't be going. There are apparently only 6 items available and after today half the women in Manhattan will be wearing them next week.

    We like(d) Tory Burch. First made popular by those famous tunics that Oprah just raved on and on and on about. We liked how you could only buy her in select places in the city, how they were really, really hard to find, and how much attention we got when we finally scored an item. We also liked her company overview:

    "Tory Burch blends timeless and classic design elements with modern fashion sensibilities. Ms. Burch achieves this by drawing on her understanding of vintage clothing, fashion history and tailoring, and by accenting it with bohemian and ethnic details. Particularly significant to this diverse mix are bold and graphic prints in colors that convey the spirit of each collection. The Tory Burch collection provides an original look for the style-conscious woman who might be aware of the trends but does not rely on them."

    The problem: The Tory Burch Collection is now not just "aware" of the trends, they are the epitome of TRENDY. As she broadens her empire, we are starting to get annoyed at seeing these slippers every time we look down. toryburch_2

    We really take pride in going home with the most unique, hardest to find pieces from nyc. These will no longer be including ms. Burch's who can now be found at freestanding stores in Atlanta, Dallas, Greenwich, Los Angeles, New York and South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA. The collection is also available at Bergdorf Goodman, at select Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales stores nationwide, and at a number of specialty stores throughout the United States. Outside of the US, the collection is available at Holt Renfrew in Canada, Harvey Nichols London, Harvey Nichols Dubai and at select stores throughout Europe.

    There's also the Lance thing.
