I actually sometimes purposefully don't buy something immediately because I expect it to go on sale. Since Toronto isn't very fashion-savvy it's pretty easy to figure out what will last until sales and what will sell out.

Purging your closet can actually be fun.

Can't decide if I love or hate this

I helped my friend purge his and it was pretty fun, but also easy because half is stuff he either didn't like anymore or didn't fit anymore. It's tough with myself because I still like most of what I own, I just rarely wear it.

Innocence is highly overrated. I like nasty, dirty. That said, that was a net wide thing, made bigger by the fact that google itself was serving up netseer ads:

I wanted to go but have a late meeting in Palo Alto and don't think I can make it up to SF in time.

If anyone was looking to pick something up off of Yoox, you're welcome, I put in a big order on Sunday and VALENTINE came out about 10 hrs later. Never fails...

Interesting article about flash sale companies going under.

SoCal was an early employee at GILT, and he left well before this stage. When he left, he told me "The problem with it is that it's a fashion company that is trying to be a tech company." I agree with that completely.

The problem with GILT thinking of itself as a tech company and acting like a tech company is that most tech execs have the fashion knowledge of a disabled sloth, and zero intuition of those things. You can't look at numbers and know whether something is going to do well or not. You can't read WWD and figure that out either, though that's a little better, because at very least, WWD reports on more than just the business side of fashion. You have to actually have knowledge of trends and a good understanding of your consumer on a gut level in addition to having a good business sense in order to make it work.
