Last week, I checked out the new Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth outlet store at Woodbury Commons, which is an hour drive outside of New York City. Woodbury Commons is an insane outlet destination shopping spot, and people bring friggin’ wheeled suitcases to tow their booty around. There are more than 100 shops there, but not everything is the deal you might think it is — it takes some maneuvering and smart shopping to get a really good deal. I found a Yigal Azrouel coat, which was originally retail priced at $1875 (ridiculous, I know), on sale for $370. If I knew math, I’d say that was a 85 percent discount or something. You guys probably hate it, but I think it’s a grown up and sexy interpretation of my Navajo craziness.

The NYPD reportedly examined her clothes for DNA evidence, and removed a portion of the hotel suite carpet.

I’m in love with Jingle Punks, a self-described “hipster orchestra” that covers pop/rock tunes like MGMT‘s “Time To Pretend” orchestrally. (Oh, wow, “orchestrally” is actually a word, y’all.) Jingle Punks’ music is perfect for girls like me who enjoy both classical and pop music. And who doesn’t love a good cover? I bet you can’t listen to just one Jingle Punks song.
