Later this week I am going to see the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In this video NYMag.com speaks with curator Andrew Bolton who started with 500 dresses on his storyboard. A great insight into the world of McQueen.
Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen are very busy girls and have added yet another fashion venture to their portfolio, StyleMint.com.
StyleMint.com is an online shopping membership site. Each month an exclusive selection of t-shirts (designed by the Olsen twins) are released to the members and available to buy for US$29.95. In addition, the site acts as a personal stylist, selecting designs based on your personal style determined by a short questionnaire completed during the sign up process.
We think this is a brilliant idea (hello only $29.95 for an Olsen designed t-shirt!) and have already signed up and awaiting our first selection of tees to arrive in our inbox!
The 'low down':
It is free to sign up and your monthly membership is only activated after your first t-shirt purchase.
Once you are a member, a selection of new designs (all produced in limited quantities) will be emailed to you at the beginning of each month, you will then have 5 days to make your purchase or select to 'skip' this month and you will not be charged for the month.
If you forget to 'skip' a month, you will receive a one time courtesy refund.
If you forget to 'skip' a second month, you will receive a store credit to use within 12 months of the issue date.
Memberships can be cancelled at any time.
In future, additional products such as knitwear may be added to the membership site.
Unfortunately shipping is limited to the US, Alaska & Hawaii - HOWEVER - shipping is FREE within the US so use a shipping company such as ForwardIt.us. You can ship your t-shirts directly to ForwardIt.com for free, and then we suggest holding the item at ForwardIt.com for a month or two until additional t-shirts have arrived, and then they will pack your items together in one box and you will only pay for shipping for one parcel to Australia. The t-shirts will obviously be incredibly lightweight so parcel forwarding service fees will be reasonable. P.S. Forwardit will also open you parcel when it arrives and check the correct order has arrived and it is in good condition.

In a few weeks I am going to New York for the first time and I am more than a little excited. Last night I stumbled across this incredible video (via lorensworld.com) that captures everything I imagine New York to be. Manhattan in motion, the city that never sleeps ….
If you have any tips for places to see, restaurants, boutiques etc. I would love for you to leave a comment below this post. Thanks so much, Bx
