Don't Miss This Week – Fashionable Finds for a Picnic in the Park
This past weekend provided us with the ultimate picnic weather but one problem – we didn’t have the right outfit for it! Sifting through last year’s dresses was less than thrilling, resulting in pouts and stomps in frustration, as all we wanted to do was look nice and feel good as we noshed on cheese and wine. Fortunately shopping this week will produce options that will gear you up for the coming weeks of summertime picnics before us.

Stick to the Cut 25 section of the Yigal Azrouel Sample Sale Tuesday, May 22nd on 39th Street and find yourself some high fashion casual wear to lounge in as you soak up the sun. A Yigal Azrouel dress will typically run you $1,000, and we certainly wouldn’t want to get grass stains on that, so keep your eye on the wallet friendly subdivision, Cut 25.
