Winter Sale at Far4

Laurent Desgrange Johnny Depp T-shirt, now on sale at Far4

By far one of my most fav stores in Seattle (one I sadly rarely get to visit because I've always got my kids with me) is Far4. I just love Jenny and Yuri's eye for sophisticated, but totally eccentric and unique, home decor, jewelry, accessories and of course, porcelain.

It's sale time at Far4 with all items in the store at least 10 percent off, including 15 percent off jewelry and 20 percent off 2-D art. The kids are with the nanny today—I'm so there.

Rian Handbags Moves to the Big Apple

A Poverty Flats by Rian satchel with end pockets

I like it better when we don’t lose our designers to New York, but it happens. And when it does, they often have a sale, so that’s a good thing. I guess. We lost Irene Wood last year and this year's it's accessory designer Rian Berry, whose crew is picking up and heading east soon, but not before selling off their inventory of slouchy-chic bags and scarves (for men and women) from both the Rian and the Poverty Flats by Rian lines.
