Biggest lock to "bag" proportion yet in the Chloe Fall 07 Collection

The "Beatrice" bag from Mayle has all the ingredients for a great summer bag. It's big, bright, and has an interesting shape.
I recently discovered Frankie magazine from the down under. It's like an Australian version of Nylon. I'll definitely be picking it up again.
Written in the stars. I love the hole punches in this Hlaska wallet that you'd expect to be in DIY vinyl, but is LEATHER! Big Dipper design in front, Summer Cross on back.
Mmm, butter. Nicholas K has got an interesting modern-techy twist on the button-down shirt in delectable buttery yellow.

The Portland based db clay has launched their new Version 3 line of wallets. The wallets use a new eco friendly textile called tope. The wallets are currently for pre-order and will ship in September.
Just did my first loads of laundry with Charlie's Soap. No fabric softener needed, just like they say! Hypoallergenic, leaves no residue, and biodegradable as well.
The new A.P.C. store is open in LA and... I'm jealous.
Qi Cashmere. Some pretty sweet knitwear!

Catcher In the Rye. Take a peek at Nom de Guerre's moody Fall-Winter 07 lookbook and you'll forget we're in warm weather. Clean-cut, Holden Caufield-esque looks have never been sexier.

OMG! The Mike & Chris "Austin" Leather Satchel is finally on sale (IMHO, they were overpriced). This color (it's Ash) is to die for!
Tsumori Chisato's Chinese and 20s inspired collection is less whimsical and more subdued. It's not my favorite collection but I appreciate her rich colors and graceful lines.
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!
