I have exactly two pieces from the Go International stuff. One is a hoodie from the Proenza Scouler line. The other is a skirt from Luella's line that I bought on major discount because I like the fabric and plan to turn it into a pillow. I stick with Isaac Mizrahi.
I looked at some of the Erin Fetherston dresses but they were so juvenile! And not in a 24-year-old-tapping-into-my-inner-child way but in a designed-for-a-child-but-made-for-an-adult kind of way. I don't really want to look like Wendy from Peter Pan.
@TruculentandUnreliable: I looked at the Vera Wang stuff and thought, I could get this for the same price on sale at J.Crew (first markdown, even!) and it would be a bajillion times better. But I do have two pairs of modal pj pants from her collections.
