WiNK (-y faces unacceptable)

As does every NYC-phile, I have lot of favorite city spots, but with locations in SoHo, Uptown and on Lex, WiNK is by far the fairest of them all (okay, three-way tie with Scoop and Olive and Bette's, one of my favorites since age ten). Now that that's out in the open, I hereby declare that I will forever associate WiNK's in-house label with flowy silk dresses and bright, punchy blouses-- and vice versa. The colors and textures are wholeheartedly representative of the brand, thus creating its own visual textbook definition among my spectrum of stylistic differentiation.

Organizing my GMail address book this morning, I got a bittersweet reminder of my summer in the city when I came across the contact information of WiNK's undeniably baller founder and manager, Ilse Werther. Talk about dream job. How awesome was it for me to browse the Columbus Ave. store (aka heaven), inquire about retail opportunities, receive the card of the company's manager, then see her in real life... on The City? OMG is right, boys and girls. (Side note: thank you to Theresa Breitton, once again, for opening my eyes to the actual relevance of MTV to my life... seen only once in a blue moon, it tends to make an appearance every once in awhile.)

This all being said, I hate missing out on the good stuff just because I don't go to school in the best city in the world. So here begins my mini-story's happy ending: words can't begin to express my sheer joy upon seeing the banner stating, "ONLINE WAREHOUSE SALE: UP TO 80% OFF". Yesssssssssssssssssssssssss.
