Harriet Kassman retirement sale
Check out the huge sale starting today at Harriet Kassman--up to 75 percent off on Bogner, Lafayette 148 as well as everything from the bridal salon. I had the privilege of interviewing the lively, hard-working Harriet when she opened the bridal salon and she has long been a favorite of ours. I was always impressed by her daily appearance at work in well-tailored suits and high heels--at an age when most would have been long retired. I loved her stories of traveling through Europe on buying trips and dealing with "the boys"--the Badgley Mischka design pair as youngsters making their way up the fashion ladder. Though the instant gratification of throwaway fashion has its appeal, we lament that the days of personal service, well-tailored clothes and attention to detail seem to be going the way of the dinosaur.
