The Edit: 8 Best Fall Hats (That Aren’t Beanies)


We understand the urge to toss on floppy knit beanies—Shoppist editor Emily has a bedazzled highlighter yellow one we all adore—but with all the whimsical prints and chunky knits that went down the runway, a well-shaped cap can be just the dose of structure your outfit needs to pull your look together. Resist the knit and opt for one of these eight wool and felt toppers. Plus, now that Goorin Bros. is open, it only takes a quick trip to Walnut Street to get bedecked. You’re welcome.

Philadelphians Ignore Stabbing in Pathmark Aisle, Keep Shopping

What are people around the United States thinking about Philadelphia today? Well, we’re a cold-blooded bunch who will not let a little thing like a stabbing at the supermarket get in the way of buying our Count Chocula. (Yes, presumably while also eating a cheesesteak.)

That’s courtesy of the above tweet, sent last night by NBC 10 and retweeted a few hundred times, and the related story. On Tuesday, a man in the Pathmark at 840 Cottman Avenue in Burlhome confronted another shopper, police say, and stabbed him in the face and neck with a kitchen knife.

The Edit: 7 Gorgeous Shearling Pieces to Wear This Fall


Shearling is a material usually reserved for the insides of your favorite cold-weather clothes. But this time around, it’s popping up as the focal point of statement pieces (like the killer emerald coat pictured above) and on unexpected pieces like purses and heels. (How great are those gold chain accents?) A more subdued version of all-out fur, the texture can be paired with all your fall closet staples like wools and knits. And the best part? It makes classic pieces unbelievable cozy. You’ll never have an excuse to wear Uggs again. (Seriously, just throw them out.)

There are all types of Philly-centric goods and souvenirs out there—some good, some not so good. The goods ones we like to gift to out-of-towners, but it’s rare we see Philly souvenirs we want to sling ourselves. Because, ya know, we actually live here.

Then these subway totes by The Billy Penn Transport Co. landed in our email inbox. We squealed at their hometown glory charm, and then started forwarding the link to all our fellow commuting neighbors. It was love at first sight.

Here’s how to get ‘em.

Score a Secret Club Monaco Discount On Friday


Shopping by yourself is great and all, but I think it’s more fun to shop with others. And by others, I mean me. (Really, I’m brutally honest; I can show you how to wear that dress as a skirt/tunic/turban, and I can give you my top-secret tips for justifying almost any purchase, and how to then hide this purchase from your significant other. Note: Trunks are NOT safe places.) Did I mention that champagne is involved?

The lowdown: I’m hosting a shopping event at Club Monaco on Walnut Street this Friday, from 6pm to 8pm. The (amazing) team there has pulled out all the stops. We’ll have champagne, catering from Starr, and the cutest candy bar you’ve ever seen. But there’s more!
