Madison Avenue Spy puts designer Norma Kamali in the hot seat for her shopping Q&A column this week. It's a tad short, but as always, Kamali is a font of eccentric wisdom. (This is the woman who invented the puffy coat, after all.) On her most prized deal: "Like everyone, I love shopping to find something at a great price and that I know I can really use. I don't have one particular prized deal because I have learned—with time—possessions own you. So if I prize it, it will own me." [MadSpy]
