ONLINE—We've always assumed there was a Gilt Groupe Tumblr out there. After all, Tumblr's given us delights as arcane as Selleck Waterfall Sandwich—surely, someone, somewhere was managing a site obsessed with everyone's favorite sample sale website. Well, now we've found it. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Not Gilty. Our favorite so far is "Peekaboob," featured at right. [SWS; Not Gilty]
UNION SQUARE—DSW provided all of the shoes for last weekend's Miss America pageant. So as a promotional tie-in, they invited newly crowned beauty queen Caressa Cameron to host a meet-and-greet at the Union Square store tonight, throwing in the chance for shoppers to win a $100 gift card while they're there. The problem, of course, is that tonight is also the evening that Beyoncé plans to set Union Square on fire, almost literally. In other words, what we have here is a Beyoncé vs Miss America showdown! Call us unpatriotic, but in that match-up our money isn't on America. [Racked Inbox; Previously]
