With the CFDA Awards steadily approaching, who doesn't like to indulge in some of the night's nominees' biggest fashion faux pas?  Hard to believe that Michael Kors was loco for leg warmers?  No, no it's not. [Style.com]

For all you fashion forward Canadians, check out the Montreal Museum of Fine Art's retrospective on Yves Saint Laurent, which has garments, sketches and photos of his impeccable clothing for both men and women.  The exhibit makes its way to San Francisco later this year, just in time for the 40th anniversary of YSL's founding.

It may New York City centric, but I just have to announce the announcement of the first all-mens Hermes store set to open here in the city on Madison avenue.  Ties! Scarves! And who knew Hermes could do coats so well?  Here's to hoping this will be the first of many for the man-only Hermes. [WWD]

Isn't it just marvelous that, in this bearish economy, we have to continue to pay more and more for the basics of survival?   Milk, eggs, Dior bronzer--le sigh.  Thankfully we can still look good while pinching our pennies. [NY Times

Still not convinced that dressing for less is worthy of your top-notch style?  Everyone else tends to disagree. [NY Times]
