* Old Navy’s Women’s Plus Size clothing is no longer carried in the stores, but is now featured exclusively online. The good news is that the online store features an extended selection of the fashions at great, Old Navy prices, but the bad news is obvious – you can’t buy them in the store! The designs are specifically for sizes 16-30 with chic pieces that will take you from work to happy hour in a snap. A classy, stylish vibe is evident throughout the entire fall collection with sleek, wide leg bottoms and chic tops in colors from deep plum to bold green.

…But the silver lining is since they’re liquidating their inventory you can get tons of make-up for under $5! Just as Cher said before catching the bouquet: “It’s in the bag!“
* Preview pics of the Comme des Garcons Collection for H&M are out. The house, looked over by Rei Kawakubo, will design a variety of menswear, womenswear, childrenswear, accessories and a unisex fragrance for the mass retailer…

I don’t know about you, but from the looks of these pictures…I’m scared. But as a lover of fashion I can overcome my fear by focusing on the nice peacoat & blazer in the first two pictures below.
* Drugstore chain CVS has drafted plans to open upscale beauty emporiums – about the size of Sephora stores – filled with department store brands. The concept will be called Beauty 360, with no mention of CVS in sight, to drive home how serious they are about jumping into prestige beauty.
The first store is slated to open by the end of the year in a major East Coast city, & another will open weeks later on the West Coast. This should be quite interesting! [via WWD]
