to shop / {sale alert} uniqlo x ines de la fressange fall/winter 2014

I used to check Forever 21 new arrivals at least once a week. The “good” stuff goes fast, I’d say! Now that I’ve gotten older, my tastes have matured a bit and I haven’t shopped at Forever 21 in years. Uniqlo is the object of my obsession — quality and durable style. Despite having relatively easy access to multiple Uniqlo stores, I’m lazy and still prefer to shop online. Their October anniversary sales are continuing and collabs are up this week.

As I mentioned in earlier posts, I’ve been very impressed by the Ines de la Fressange collection especially after seeing her last collection. If you’re looking for any of these items, you must check it out! The sale is through Sunday. More of the collection will be dropping next month. Note: while these items are in black or blue (aka my favorite colors!), most of these items come in colors other than black and blue. I’m also including a review of Urban Sweats at the end of the post.

The Uniqlo collection by Helmut Lang designer, Alexandre Plokhov, dropped last week. It was sold out online but it is now back in stock. I haven’t tried it on at all, but my friend checked it in person (since she’s way more unlazy than I had to drag myself up or downtown) and here’s a quick paraphrase of her in-person review:

  • Some pieces aren’t attractive and are too expensive. (I totally agree.)
  • The kids’ collection is really cute (and we all know some of it runs big enough for petites and it’s cheaper).
  • I wonder how long the black will stay black…
