What if we told you that next Thursday night, you could make your way through Soho and get 25% off at Theory? Then you could swing by Kate's Paperie and get 15% off all the Christmas cards in the world and stop by Tibi for hot chocolate and 20% off. Or if Missoni's more your style, you could hop in and grab a free gift with your on-sale purchase. Then you can grab some books for your dad at McNally for 20% off and a free umbrella at Bloomingdale's in case it starts raining. But don't eat too many candy canes because when you're done you can collect your free margarita at LaEsquina and top it off with discounted hot chocolate and cookies from Balthazar. And all the while you'll have been helping New York City's homeless. It's the first annual Soho Holiday Stroll sponsored by A.C.E.,(The Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless), on December 11th from 6 to 11pm. What's the catch? The $20 bracelet you have to purchase for access to the discounts. But the money goes straight to charity and if that's not enough motivation for you, it basically covers your margarita. And if you'd rather give more, you can buy the $150 VIP bracelet which grants you access to the after party, location TBA. Click here for a list of all the participating stores and their promotions - you can buy your bracelet on line or in most of the stores. Happy Shopping!

Theyskens' Theory is Available to Buy Online and in New York Starting Today; Will Be Released Globally Next Week
I've got to admit, I was a bit bearish on the idea that Olivier Theyskens would be designing for Theory. But I'm happy to report that I was off the mark--the clothes look amazing (poga pants, anyone?) and are priced reasonably, with trousers hovering around $400 and blouses starting at about $250. (No, that isn't cheap, but when you consider the caliber of the design and the product, it makes sense.) While the collection won't be available globally until next week, you can buy them on Theory's US website and in the brand's Meatpacking Distrtict flagship (right across from Pastis) starting today. My top picks are the blazers, the poga pants, and the pointy velvet flats. That's right, I said it. Velvet can look good. At least under Olivier's supervision.
