1 Size of your choosing (XS,S,M,L)

(The sizes are as follows however if you're 2 different sizes on the top and bottom such as a small bust and a medium waist, let me know and I will most likely be able to accommodate you.)

And..... I have been working on the Therese Lisbon dropped shoulder dress/tunic for fall. I will be selling only 1 in my shop in a size small on Monday as I was not able to get any more of this lovely & soft cotton :( However, I will press on with my quest for something comparable and will have more of these over the next few weeks.

In Case You Love Free Stuff....

YSL is planning on giving away FREE, these tote bags on Sept 6th as part of their “Manifesto” program. The bags will also contain newspaper style catalog and will be given to women on the streets of Paris, New York, London, Milan, Tokyo and Hong Kong. Needless to say I want one.

If you're American and you love free stuff you'll be happy to hear that dept stores in the US have been accused of price fixing and cheating you out of your hard earned money which happens to be a violation of antitrust laws. As part of the settlement, the stores have to give away $175 million worth of products starting in 2009. That breaks down into $25 each which is like 1 tube of DiorShow Mascara (almost) or 3/4 of a tube of YSL Touche Eclat or 2 tubes of Clique Almost Lipstick (the best lip product ever made). All you have to do is:

1. Sign a document that states you purchased the covered products between May 29, 1994, and July 16, 2003, and you're a resident of the United States.

2. Enter in your e-mail and mailing address her
e or call 877-604-5776 to leave your name and mailing address.

3. Wait for the alert that tells you you're eligible.

4. Enjoy your $25 of freeeeeeeeeeee make up. God bless America......
