         (2) The Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for quarter ended April

         All documents subsequently filed by us pursuant to Sections 13(a),

ITEM 4.  DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES.

         Not applicable.

ITEM 5.  INTEREST OF NAMED EXPERTS AND COUNSEL.

         The validity of the common stock offered hereby will be passed upon for

ITEM 6.  INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS.

         Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law authorizes a court
to award, or a corporation's board of directors to grant, indemnity to directors
and officers in terms sufficiently broad to permit such indemnification under
certain circumstances for liabilities (including reimbursement for expenses
incurred) arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities
Act").

         As permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Registrant's
Amended and Restated


                                       2
<PAGE>


Certificate of Incorporation includes a provision that eliminates the personal
liability of its directors for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as
a director, except for liability (i) for any breach of the director's duty of
loyalty to the Registrant or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in
good faith or that involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law,
(iii) under section 174 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (regarding
unlawful dividends and stock purchases) or (iv) for any transaction from which
the director derived an improper personal benefit.

         As permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, our Bylaws
provide that (i) we are required to indemnify its directors and officers to the
fullest extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law, subject to
certain very limited exceptions, (ii) we may indemnify its other employees and
agents as set forth in the Delaware General Corporation Law, (iii) we are
required to advance expenses, as incurred, to our directors and executive
officers in connection with a legal proceeding to the fullest extent permitted
by the Delaware General Corporation Law, subject to certain very limited
exceptions and (iv) the rights conferred in the Bylaws are not exclusive.

         At present, there is no pending litigation or proceeding involving a
director, officer or employee of the Registrant regarding which indemnification
is sought, nor are we aware of any threatened litigation that may result in
claims for indemnification.

         The indemnification provisions in our Restated Certificate of
Incorporation and in our Bylaws may be sufficiently broad to permit
indemnification of our directors and executive officers for liabilities arising
under the Securities Act.

         We, with approval by the Registrant's Board of Directors, have obtained
directors' and officers' liability insurance.

ITEM 9.  UNDERTAKINGS.

(a)      The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

         (1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made,
              a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:

                  (i)      to include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)
                           (3) of the Securities Act;

                  (ii)     to reflect in the prospectus any facts or events
                           arising after the effective date of the Registration
                           Statement (or the most recent post-effective
                           amendment thereof) which, individually or in the
                           aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the
                           information set forth in the Registration Statement.
                           Notwithstanding the foregoing, any increase or
                           decrease in volume of securities offered (if the
                           total dollar value of securities offered would not
                           exceed that which was registered) and any deviation
                           from the low or high end of the estimated maximum
                           offering range may be reflected in the form of
                           prospectus filed with the Commission pursuant to Rule
                           424(b) if, in the aggregate, the changes in volume
                           and price represent no more than a 20% change in the
                           maximum aggregate offering price set forth in the
                           "Calculation of Registration Fee" table in the
                           effective Registration Statement;

                  (iii)    to include any material information with respect to
                           the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in
                           the Registration Statement or any material change to
                           such information in the Registration Statement;

                           provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and
                           (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the information required
                           to be included in a post-effective amendment by those
                           paragraphs is contained in periodic reports filed
                           with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant
                           pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the
                           Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in
                           the Registration Statement.

         (2)      That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the
                  Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be
                  deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the
                  securities offered therein, and the offering of such
                  securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona
                  fide offering thereof.

         (3)      To remove from registration by means of a post-effective
                  amendment any of the securities being registered which remain
                  unsold at the termination of the offering.

(b)      The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of
         determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the
         Registrant's annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d)
         of the Exchange Act that is incorporated by reference in the
         Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new Registration
         Statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering
         of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona
         fide offering thereof.

(c)      Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities
         Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of
         the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the
         Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Commission such
         indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities
         Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for
         indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the
         Registrant of expenses incurred or


                                       4
<PAGE>


         paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in
         the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted
         by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the
         securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the
         opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling
         precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question
         whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as
         expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final
         adjudication of such issue.

iTurf Inc.

New York, New  York 10014

Dear Sirs:

         I am the Chief Operating Officer, Secretary and General Counsel of
iTurf Inc., a Delaware corporation (the "Company"), and I am rendering this
opinion in connection with the Registration Statement on Form S-8 with exhibits
thereto (the "Registration Statement") filed by the Company under the Securities
Act of 1933 (the "Act"), relating to the registration of 4,050,000 shares (the
"Shares") of Class A common stock, par value $.01 per share, of the Company.

         As such counsel, I have participated in the preparation of the
Registration Statement and have reviewed the corporate proceedings in connection
with the issuance of the Shares. I have also examined and relied upon originals
or copies, certified or otherwise authenticated to my satisfaction, of all such
corporate records, documents, agreements and instruments relating to the
Company, and certificates of public officials and of representatives of the
Company, and have made such investigations of law, and have discussed with
representatives of the Company and such other persons such questions of fact, as
I have deemed proper and necessary as a basis for rendering this opinion.

         Based upon, and subject to, the foregoing, I am of the opinion that the
Shares are duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid, and non-assessable.

         I hereby consent to the filing of this opinion as Exhibit 5.1 to the
Registration Statement. In giving the foregoing consent, I do not admit that I
am in the category of persons whose consent is required under Section 7 of the
Act, or the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission
promulgated thereunder.

                                                       Very truly yours,



                                                       /s/ Alex S. Navarro
