ONLINE SHOPPING—Everything basics designer James Perse is throwing a summer sample sale, and although it officially starts tomorrow, you can shirk silly things like showing up in person, checkout lines, and start dates by shopping early online until tonight at midnight. Not convinced? All the goods—from chinos to wrap skirts to tank dresses—are up to 75% off. [Racked Inbox]
APPS—The Christian Louboutin app launched yesterday and it promises to enable your shoe fetish, or, if you don't have a fetish already, give you one. Download it for your iPod or iPad free from the iTunes store and commence viewing all the sketches from the 20th anniversary capsule collection and/or browsing through each seasonal collection, and then share favorites, create a virtual cork-board wishlist, and stay up-to-date on all Louboutin news. Also, the "Louboutin’s People" feature offers video interviews of brand's friends mixing and matching choice products. Life: Changed. [Racked Inbox]
