Eff Gwen Stefani. Though a pretty hackneyed subject, Tiffany Godoy's book, Style Deficit Disorder: Harajuku Street Fashion, seems like it might bring something new to the table.
Sophisticated asymmetry. For an afternoon of tea and crumpets with mum wear this silk dress by Alexander Wang--now on sale!
Eley Kishimoto's Fall/Winter 07 is lousy with their signature pattern play. The line is always so pop, but this season manages to be lady-like as well.
Speaking of more Vivienne Westwood - look at her pirate-punk men's line for Spring/Summer 07. This is my favorite look. Oh - and if you haven't seen the V&A traveling exhibit - DO!!!!
Each Orno earring is cut from a simple plank of exotic wood, nice use of geometry!
I think hats are a great accessory if you can pull them off. Check out these hats from New York company Still Life. They have a great gallery.
Vintage leather shoes handpainted by Parisian artist Mathieu Missiaen. Shoes are decorated using oil based paints and varnished for protection.
Wow. It's like jewelry... for your jeans. Bones Key/Belt chain by Roen.
I want this Vivienne Westwood Knuckle Duster ring SO F***ING BADLY. Like another ring that I have, this folds out to become three rings!
Leather racerback vest by Society for Rational Dress.
Happy Therapy ~ for that friend who needs a pick me up ~ i suggest the Smiley Emergency Kit. (adorable packaging as well as olfactory antidepressant)
France Luxe also has some gorgeous Elysee Barrettes which are handcrafted in france
I have a thing for thick laser cut headbands made in France apparently, and just gave in to this France Luxe Ultra Comfort Jessica Headband. (and you can heat to re-tighten it like sunglass frames)
This gold star necklace from Melanie Auld in a way makes me feel like i'm in kindergarten... collecting gold stars for good behavior, etc. Would be an adorable gift for kids even.
Need a light cover-up? This kimono-esque little cardigan by Mayle has great details like front pockets, empire waist pleating and a beaded sweater clip.
Harpooned through the heart. I love the simplicity of this Harpoon Belt by Rogues Gallery.
More layers than an onion. Buttery leather Golden Goose jacket. Can't resist that collared U-neck and double breasting!
How sweet it is. Essential oils aren't just for hippies, man. Kai's subtle gardenia-based oil is long-lasting for those sunny days out at the park.
Save the planet. Everyone's all over "eco-chic"--and why not? Look how non-hippie this hemp/silk-blend cami is! By Stewart + Brown
So sweet it makes my teeth hurt. Dolce Vita's 40's Oxford
Another great piece from Y's by Yamamoto. I love love love this cardigan. Beautiful.
How cool are these mens Ann Demeulemeester sneakers?! Makes me want to "hack" a pair of Chucks... (From Luisa via Roma)
I'm usually not a fan of "graphic" t-shirts but the sinister quality of these silhouettes is intriguing- from Y's by Yamamoto (from the best women's store in Seattle- Impulse!)
Great minimalist dress that looks like it costs more than it actually does ... linen/cotton with silk at the shoulders and silk sash. By Ziji
Not wearing enough pieces of flair? Try on this Art Piece top by Choye Toi
Dalek shirt by Laura Dawson. Looks like it has a nice fit
THE perfect summer staple- a lightweight white dress. This one by Thread Social is seersucker!
Clean. I didn't even know that Phillip Lim was designing a men's line for 3.1 Phillip Lim. Notice the return of the Clarks Wallabees!
Going once, going twice...Bid for luxury items on a trusted site. Portero's new online auction site offers high fashion accessories (like this unique LV bag) and even fine art!
Raindrops keep falling on my head. More See By Chloe. Love this duffle coat: the stylish hemline, plaid-lined hood, cutsey pockets, white details and shortened sleeves are delish.
Another collaboration, this time it's Puma & Marcel Wanders. (not exactly a clothing collabo though since these two items are the only things you can wear)
Spare change? Lighten your wallet by adding this pudgy Vivienne Westwood black leather coin purse.
Make them green with envy in these sexy Les Prairies de Paris flats. Now 50% off at Satine!
Its hard for J.Crew to go wrong in my eyes, I am just a real traditional sucker for seersucker...har har har. But this particular Summer 2007 line has really got me hooked. This madras summer jumper screams east coast, you gotta love it!
Be a badass. I love Ksubi's twist on the classic aviator sunglasses.
Antique Czechoslovakian Aquamarine 32mm, 20mm jewels,1ofMYkind Bronzed Brass finery, Antique and very rare French Butterfly wing Filigree and reversible too! By 1ofmykind

Kooba's Avery Tote ~ i kind of want it for my laptop schlepping...
18 pockets for shoes... Big enough for mens shoes, as well as 4 inch heels - Marc Marmel's T-Bag
If you dare wear short skirts....Slip into this ethnic patterned 60s-inspired mini by Abaete for Fall 07.
FASHION, depending on which designer you ask, is currently about futurism, romanticism, athleticism or the revival of 1980s-ism. Funny how no one ever mentions hippies...
Gonna put that new blue mini on my charge anyway. Diggin' the Southwestern-y pattern on this sexy Charlotte Ronson mini-dress for Spring/Summer 07.
Loden Dager's Spring/Summer 2007 collection.. some nice simple pieces for men. I especially like this cute brown blazer & shirt combo
Surfer girl. I usually hate Roxy, but now that I don't live in Cali the brand isn't so bad. These gingham shorty-shorts are Hee-Haw worthy and on sale for super cheap!
Snap me up, Buttercup. Put all your junk in this metallic Not Rational multi-pocket mini S.U.B. leather bag.
