Department store chain Macy’s is releasing a Monroe-inspired line chock full of halter tops, gingham, and flared skirts, in an attempt to capitalize on the fated starlet’s appeal to the younger generation.
So you’re cramming all of your shopping into the weekend before the big day. It’s cool, we don’t judge. This probably means you’ll want to get it all done in one fell swoop, which, as much as you may dread it, is easiest to do in a mall. So brace yourself for the crowds and come prepared. To get you started, we’ve rounded up seven sure bets from big time retailers. This is not the time to go without a game plan.
Here’s a feel-good story for the day: Macy‘s is teaming up with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to distribute Thanksgiving Day Parade to the families that were hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy.
Donald Trump likes to push people’s buttons, and it looks like his words are finally catching up to him. Over half a million people have supported a SignOn.org petition asking Macy’s CEO Terry J. Lundgren to “sever ties” with Trump because he doesn’t have the “magic of Macy’s.”
Our enthusiasm for Fashion’s Night Out pretty much went out the window the third time someone nearly knocked us over last year trying to elbow their way to the in-store bar, but we realize there are those of you with higher crowd thresholds and a greater will to meet Kim Kardashian, so for you we’ve got some details for September 6th!
Who better to model one’s own clothing line than oneself, right? Well, that’s particularly true if you’re a bankable celebrity like Nicole Richie, who is now fronting her own Macy’s line.

“I have always been in awe of how Brazilian women dress and carry themselves,” confesses Rachel Roy.

Earlier last month, Macy’s revealed that it was collaborating with Calvin Klein‘s Francisco Costa as part of its “A Magical Journey to Brazil” series. We the Brazilian designer’s previewed the entire collection this morning and can attest that it’s amazing.

The first episode of NBC’s Fashion Star aired last night and if today’s sales are anything to go by, it’s off to a great start. Not only did all three retailers — Saks, Macy’s, and H&M, purchase items from the designers, but at least one of the winning looks sold out in under an hour.
In what is probably the most amusing case of the pot calling the kettle black this year so far, Macy’s filed a lawsuit in which it claimed that Martha Stewart shouldn’t be allowed to sell her home goods collection at JC Penney because that store’s “less upscale” market cheapens the value of Stewart’s Macy’s line.
When designer Doo-Ri Chung‘s collaboration with Macy’s Impulse hits the retail chain’s 631 stores on February 15, she’ll be the fifth designer to have worked with the label. But she told us Tuesday afternoon that she’d be just as happy if she were the fiftieth.
