From the Trenches: Labor Day in CT & NYC

I can't think of a better way to spend Labor Day weekend than to come to NYC, shoot out to Camp Sloane for a reunion weekend, then come back to the city to enjoy a local Eat-In as well as catching up with friends, culture and fashion!

Here's the gist of it:

- Camp never changes! The numbers of campers can expand and contract, the popular activities can evolve, the rules for counselors can become more "strict," but C-a-m-p-S-l-o-a-n-e is still one of greatest places on earth.

- Short shorts with hard-backed (i.e. covering the back of the heel) gladiator sandals and longish, billowy shirts (with the occasional summer scarf) are hot hot hot. Everyone's wearing this in the final warm-weather days.

- DBGB is a nice new addition to the Bowery (warning, the site loads with music playing).

- There's a Hayden Harnett in Manhattan now on Elizabeth Street. That's a fairly recent addition, right? Also in that area is a Vince. Oh how I covet thee, Vince...and in related news, thanks to our current economy, everyone working in a store was nice to me. There were no bitches>?! Crazy, right?

- If you're an entrepreneur, or supporter of people who run small/start-up businesses, you need to join this movement> Build A Stronger America!
