Virginia Barnett heads straight to Neiman Marcus whenever the urge arises to buy a $500 Ferragamo bag for herself or a $2,500 Prada suit for her boyfriend. But instead of driving to the store near her home in Fort Worth, Texas, Barnett logs on to the Internet, checks out the Web site www.neimanmarcus.com and e-mails her online personal shopper David Isaacs to make her purchase. Barnett, 26, said she doesn't miss the perks that usually draw a customer to Neiman Marcus -- an attentive sales assistant stroking her ego and tending to her every shopping need.

NEW YORK -- "Will this be used for Beyonce's hair?" asks Sandra Magsamen. She fingers a strand of crystal beading at Spaeth Designs, a New York company that creates lavish decorations for department stores. Surrounding her are dozens of carpenters, painters and electricians all busily working to transform her illustrated children's book, The Gift (Glitterati Books, 2003), into holiday windows for Saks Fifth Avenue. This is a perilous enterprise, as the original magic can easily be lost in the new version.

Owings Mills mall was once the airy, marbled haven for the Baltimore shopper with $300 to drop, but today it is being "repositioned," in the words of its owners, to reflect the needs of the people who work and live in the office buildings and townhouses sprouting from the grassy hills around it.J. C. Penney replacing Saks Fifth Avenue; Sunglass Hut International replacing Godiva Chocolates; Let's Talk Cellular replacing Williams-Sonoma.Make no mistake, Owings Mills is going downscale.But not, mall owners hope, so downscale that most of Baltimore won't feel comfortable shopping there.

NEW YORK -- Don't hate fashion designer Matt Nye because he's beautiful, or because he's the companion of media maverick Jann Wenner, or because he's traveled through Europe in five-star style with former boss Ralph Lauren. "Yes, good looks, youth, a level of notoriety, can open doors. For whatever reason people may be curious about me," says Nye, 34, while lounging in his Upper West Side studio. "What you choose to do with those opportunities once they're created is up to you. In the end, it's your work that's going to speak louder than who you're with or what you look like."
