Shopping Notes
Plus: the skint

Pimp That Pram
From City Mum, CityShades – sun protection you hitch up to your Bugaboos (and other strollers) to keep your baby comfy.

Pick up Pumps
Lo, how the mighty have fallen arches. Major sales are on at both Manolo Blahnik, 31 W. 54th [5th/6th] 212.582.3007 and both Christian Louboutin stores: 965 Mad [75th/76th] 212.396.1884 and 59 Horatio [9th] 212.255.1910.

Peruse Pinots
From a reader: "I found a fantastic new wine store this weekend when I was having lunch on Stone Street and thought I'd give MUG a heads up: California Wine Merchant, 15 Bridge [Stone] 212.785.7285 ). I was so excited with their selections and I bought a rosé that was simply amazing (and I've since found out only they distribute it so I'll have to make the trek back from Brooklyn soon. Oh well). The store was pretty empty when I was in but then again it was 3:00 on a Saturday around Wall Street. I suspect they're busier during the week. The owner was very nice and she walked me through a lot of selections and didn't push me to the priciest selection.
