Say it ain't so!

Well, this is upsetting news - Isaac Mizrahi is leaving Target and defecting to Liz Claiborne, of all places.


I love Target. I hate Liz Claiborne. And I'm proud to claim that the only Liz Claiborne anything I have ever owned in my entire life was a brown logo purse that was a hand-me-down from my sister, back when those purses were huge in the mid to late 80s.

I've never actually spent any of my own money at Liz Claiborne. But now...does this mean I'm going to be forced to?

BEST WISHES my cousin for a successful day tomorrow and a speedy recovery.

Thanks for the well wishes!

And everyone's going to Liz. I was so upset when Tim Gunn jumped ship and went there...

They're trying to spize up the line. Can't say I blame them. LC is quite possibly the most boring place a woman can shop, even more boring than Talbot's. I predict it'll return to hipness in a couple of years. Hey, if it happened to Burberry and LV, it can happen to Liz. Once upon a time, Burberry and LV were on the brink of bakya. Heh. Bakya. Our favorite word. I love days when I get a chance to use it.

Oh, no!! I absolutely LOVE the Isaac Mizrahi line at Target! It's so hard for me to find designers and brands that consistently fit and flatter, and Isaac Mizrahi was one of them. Guess I should go back and get those cute spring sweaters and dresses I've been eyeing for weeks.

Hahaha, LV and Burberry on the brink of bakya. That's awesome.

I still can't shake off the staid, old people image that I have of Burberry. And LV will always be 1) mean Parisian salesclerks on Avenue Montaigne 2) fake purses on Canal St in NYC

Marn, I totally agree. You need to buy out Isaac's stuff ASAP!
