Store opening alert: Frey Boutique is opening in Newtown Square on October 24. The shop will be housed at 3555 West Chester Pike and after seeing how each shop reflects the local area’s flair (see: their Ocean City location), we’re positively giddy to see what they’ll do with the space. Really, the addition of brands like Rag & Bone, Equipment and Vince is just the icing on the cake.
So, about Exton.

It goes without saying that sweaters are the wardrobe workhorse of fall. To prevent rampant outfit repetition or a sky-high dry cleaning bill, we suggest adding a few new cozy pullovers into the mix—without breaking the bank. Here are 14 sweaters under $150 to hold you over until spring. (Psst: Most of them are actually under $100, but we couldn’t resist that cashmere DVF or Theyskens’ Theory.) Happy shopping!

Here’s some shocking news for you: According to Google’s research on holiday shopping trends, 26 percent of shoppers will have already started their holiday shopping by Halloween this year. Yes, you read that right. As of today, about one-quarter of Americans have already started holiday shopping.
We stumbled upon this curious study on Fashionista and immediately hated these people. They’re sort of like those annoying people at college who finish writing papers weeks before they’re due. Isn’t procrastination half the fun, that frenzied jaunt to the mall seconds before it closes? Hell, I haven’t even bought Halloween candy, let alone Christmas presents.
