If you haven't heard of laredoute.com, take a moment and go to this site immediately. I read about it, went there, and have been positively amazed at how much cool stuff there is on this site. My assistant Asheley and I have been on it for an hour — hey, this is our JOB, ok! — trying to figure out what to buy. Her choice is this mini-dress by Vanessa Bruno, a total steal at $49.99. My choice is — what else? — the Alexandra Neel two-tone leather heels for $74.99. There's also a Viktor + Rolf velvet tuxedo — the jacket is under $100. I don't know how they do it, and I don't care. This is a total find.

La Redoute is very famous in Europe, as one of France's most popular and reliable 'catalogue' shopping.
It's quite established in this field (europeans are not great fan sof catalogue shopping) and has special seasonal collaborations with a range of 'hot' designers (btw Vanessa Bruno is very much on the rise in Paris)

Bizarre! I have a couple of tops I bought in secondhand shops that have the label "LaRedoute" in them. I wonder if they had come from this place originally...

apparently they were bought by chadwick's of boston and lerner cataogues in the US...they sell about the same level of quality and design and price as laredoute in europe, but until very recently, the designer section of laredoute--(that's the only good stuff - imo)--was only available in the european catalog...that's very new and exciting news to those of us who have had to have things shipped by friends in the past...

vanessa bruno is a current obssession of mine...some of you may have seen me write about her in the past....the handbag i am currently using came from lareoute on sale and is by vanessa bruno...no one else over here has it, because it was never available in th US...and i just love having something so unique...and i'm very amused by the fact that most people think i spent a fortune on it....

that's all over now...
everyone in NY is going to have that damn dress this summer...

Yeah, I like this place a lot. Heard about them in one of my mags and got hooked a while back. They have some cool stuff at times.
