There's a new kid at the New York fashion blogging party: NBC New York's The Thread. The site, which just launched this week, covers stores, sales, and all things pertaining to clothing from a local perspective. In other words, we'll probably be bumping into them at Clothingline before long. Highlights so far include a sneak preview of Eryn Brinie's fall collection, a look at the two bathing suits The Lake and Stars designed for Noho concept shop Smile, and a recurring feature called "Um, No" in which the writers gently chide celebrities for their unfortunate fashion choices. Each post comes with a bar up the side that lets you vote on how it makes you feel: Options are "Furious," "Sad," "Bored," "Thrilled," "Intrigued," and "Laughing." (NB: Because the fashion world is nothing if not incestuous, The Thread is run by Laurel Pinson, whose empty shoes at Lucky were just filled by our own Leslie Price.)
