NATIONAL—The first images of Erin Fetherston for Target have leaked and the verdict is: nice, but super girly and youthful, which shouldn't surprise anyone who's familiar with Fetherston's designs. Don't get too excited for the clothes just yet, however. This line won't see the florescent light of a Target store till November. [Fashionista]
WEST VILLAGE—A reader fills us in on some deals at Ludivine, a boutique at 172 West 4th Street that stocks a superb assortment of clothing for women from labels like Notify and Vanessa Bruno. "Haven't checked it out yet, but Ludivine on West 4th has a sign up on the door which reads there's a 20-60% off sale. Didn't see anything promising (eg bargain bins) as I passed by this morning, but am definitely stopping in after work today! I think it's an ongoing sale." [Racked Inbox]
