COS and & Other Stories are in their former sister’s H&M space at 42nd St and Fifth Avenue and opened in late October 2015. I was crossing Midtown one evening and conveniently ended up at 43rd and Fifth. How could I resist the new COS? COS occupies most of the ground floor and is laid out like any other COS store. It has women’s and men’s. My guess is that this location is larger than the Soho location (not that I have any inclination to visit).

I quickly skimming the store. I saw iterations of a prior season item, like this a-line wool coat in two new colors (I have it in black, it runs big) and the dotted wool dress (substantial weight). Also saw a men’s mac jacket that was half price online two weeks ago now being sold at full price. No sale in progress here or online. The dressing room corridor looked spacious.

The SMITH store in Narita airport (T1) was the start of my Delfonics experience where I got a red cardholder (similar here). (I promise to post a review soon.) I went to Madewell to make a return and was very happy to see that they’ve restocked their Delfonics pouch collection. Especially this gingham one that I thought was discontinued.

I’m tempted to go through a third party shopping service in Japan to shop for me because it’s hard to find the same Quitterie selection and prices in the US. If you’re easy to please, you can find Delfonics in the US at Madewell, Urban Outfitters, and Amazon.

I was overzealous in my online shopping and ordered two Mansur Gavriel large buckets, not realizing they’re final sale. Oops! If you’re interested, please drop me a comment or email me (irenelikes at gmail). I would keep one if I didn’t find a saffiano one! And if you want a saffiano, keep on watching this page. Having watched it for a while, luck is not on your side…

Carine Roitfeld’s collection was supposed to drop on October 29, but it’s went live early — which is great because I’m jetlagged and need to go to bed asap! I hope their sizing is typical of their normal. Are you a fan of tailored pieces, polka dots, black, or leopard? Click away. Code SPOOKY also takes $31/$150 and can be used multiple times.

This leopard coat is selling out fast. A shorter version, both in faux fur.

Uniqlo’s having a huge anniversary sale right now. This IDLF trench is $39.90 down from $129.90. Size down! Random sizes in stock as of press time. Also used code SPOOKY for $31 off $150. They also restocked on other IDLF items including the corduroy blazers, the sleek ultra light down jacket, and the poly/nylon pea coat. Check back often as they do restock throughout the day.

I absolutely adore COS (Collection of Style) — it’s up there in my top 3. I’ve gotten a ton of wear from my collection of navy or black dresses from the spring to roughly about now. If this keeps up, I will need to sell the rest of my closet — my collection of COS dresses get pretty close to a capsule wardrobe and since it’s pretty neutral, I don’t get sick of it. Also, almost all of the dresses I bought are washed in the machine on delicate cycle, then hung dry. There’s only one that needs pressing… so gets a little less wear. Low dry cleaning bill makes me a happy camper.

I am conflicted whether to get a Domino magazine subscription since I currently read the electronic version on Texture (formally known as Next Issue – I’m not in love with the rebranding). I’m a throw-as-you-go magazine reader. I painstakingly built back my Domino magazine collection through eBay and Craigslist (which included visiting someone’s Boerum Hill townhouse), but have stopped in the recent year because of Texture and because I never read my print issues.  Read More
