Fuck yeah!

Behold the Fall 09 Pierre Hardy x Gap gems, for sale in September...

How will I ever choose?!

I'm hoping they're comfy, babies look HIGH.

Remember how awesome they looked on the models? I was definitely oohing and ahhing when the looks were released last Fashion Week. Kind of glad now I didn't purchase anything from the Alexander Wang and Vena Cava x Gap collections, I want to save my pretty pennies for ALL OF THESE. I hope the price points aren't excruciating though. I'm guessing they'll range from $100-200.

Officially excited for fall.

I think Lara as Bardot is my favorite Lara. W published this editorial of her done up in a similar style in May, and for the August issue we get her on the cover looking oh-so-sweet. Such a rare beauty.

A.P.C. Fall 2010

The thing about A.P.C. is that you look at a lot of it at first and say to yourself "Um, but why?" But then you study it some more and realize how well-crafted the looks are, and how this is probably how you want to end up dressing every day.

White sneaks too, I need me some.

Mink Pink Giveaway

Hey hey hey! I've found a café with free Wi-fi to post from. Sadly, my internet is going to be down until the at least the 29th, so posting may continue to be slow. It SUCKS.

The good news is that this giveaway I've been wanting to post forever is finally up and running! This time it's for a Mink Pink item of your choice from Chick Downtown! I decided that instead of pre-selecting something for a giveaway, it'd be fun to have a variety of items for a winner to choose from. I've posted some favorites, and there are many more options.

This time, there are a couple of rules to enter. First, you must either follow chickdowntown.com on Twitter or become a fan on the chickdowntown.com Facebook Fan page. Second, leave a comment here with your favorite Mink Pink clothing item and tell me how you'd rock it. Be sure to include a way for me to get in touch with you, be it via your email or blog. Contest only open to U.S. readers. I hope to do something soon for my intl readers, you guys are such a huge influence on me!

Thanks again to Chick Downtown for sponsoring another giveaway! Be sure to check out their other pretty offerings from designers like Yumi Kim.

This giveaway will be open until Monday, August 3rd at 12pm EST, don't forget to enter!

So this is going to be quick because I'm stealing some shaky weak wi-fi signal. I have not been posting because Time Warner Cable is THE WORST COMPANY IN THE WORLD and I've been without internet for a week now. It's indefinite when it'll be repaired, also. AWESOME. I AM IN WITHDRAWAL. THIS IS HORRIBLE. I have internet on my phone but can't really do much blogging from there, though I may attempt it.

For now, I'd like to promise you a new giveaway in the next couple of days, it's been delayed a week due to the aforementioned technical issues.

In the meantime, let's admire the nice little tour of Lisa Mayock's (of Vena Cava!) apartment that Refinery29 posted...

She lives in my neighborhood! And my apartment does not look like this. One day...

Broke shopping

I realized I don't really have many basic flat sandals to run around in this summer and have become jealous of all the girls walking around in them. My tan Saltwaters are nice & all but they don't go with many things I want to wear, which end up not getting worn because I have no shoes. How do I have no shoes?! There are probably 30 pairs in my room, and yet most of them don't work without tights. Uh, dilemma. I am broke. Brokety broke broke. It's no fun.

So I went sniffing around online...

Urban Outfitters has a surprisingly extensive selection of $20 sale sandals. I then searched for coupon codes and found that "25OFFSALE" works on all sale items. $15 sandals!

So I've ordered both of these, now I'll have my little basic, cute, flat sandals. New, made of suede/leather, and significantly marked down. I'm quite pleased with myself at the moment.

Time to paint my toes.

One more thing

This girl, featured on the wonderful Backyard Bill...

I think she is the most uniquely gorgeous girl I've ever seen.

Effortless perfection.

I'd like to figure out how to steal her haircut, too.

Blah blah blah

So I had a pretty festive holiday weekend and it's left me exhausssssted. Wow. Boozy, grilled, sparkling goodness. I think it's safe to say that summer has FINALLY arrived. I know my posting has been really sporadic lately (I blame 2 straight months of rain...so bad for motivation!), but I'm mapping out a pretty productive week. There will be another giveaway! Outfit posts! What else? Hmm we will see.

Also, I really want these sparkly shoes from Anthropologie:

They seem perfect for skipping around.
