I've never wanted a comic book so much!!

• Marvel Comics is releasing an eight-page comic book called Loaded Gunn, which features a superhero version of Tim Gunn dressed in an Iron Man suit who saves the day at the "New York Museum of Fashion." One Gunn line: "You know, there are far easier ways to accessorize than grand larceny." [WWD]

I blame the O-Twins

I'm not sure why, but I've been wanting a pair of clogs/mules. I predict clogs will randomly be the next big thing. These are very modern and simple, but a little more than I want to spend right now.

Can't Hardly Wait

(Kimchi Blue Origami Dress $68 at Urban Outfitters.)
While this has been a really great summer, I am so ready for fall. I cannot wait to wear fall clothes--jackets, dresses, tights...
I think this dress would look great with a little cardigan, black tights, and oxford flats. Nice shape, a bit of visual detail, and a decent price.

I can't explain it, so I won't try.

I just really want a pair of hi-tops. I blame Coline.

Anyone else curious?

Always skinny destructed jeans (medium wash) Regular Price $69.50 Now $49.50 available in petite/tall

I'm taking it easy today as I'm still getting over strep throat, but sometime I am going to have to investigate these jeans at the Gap everyone is talking about.

Have you the wings?

No, actually. I'm more concerned about the dress though!

So I'm getting married in September. No big wedding, simple courthouse ceremony. That being said, I still want a new dress. I've been looking around a bit, but I haven't found anything that really screams fall, courthouse wedding, and flattering.

So I might just wear this.
