I'd like a new pair of flats for fall. And a pair of boots. And a pair of heels. And a pair of high top sneakers. Hmm, maybe this is an addiction like my mom says and I should just get off the internet.

I love seeing models I recognize from somewhere (S'up Allie)--even more so when it's someone I admire. Needless to say I was elated when I saw this post featuring Sunshine & Shadow's lookbook on Refinery 29 featuring Laurel!

I get about 20 emails a day just from stores. I know I should hit unsubscribe, but I'm afraid I'll miss a BIG SALE or something...something like this.
From a Shop Intuition email trying to sell headbands.

Here are Week 1 stats:
Winner 1: L.A.M.B, 55% (Alexander Wang, 45%)
Winner 2: BCBG, 64% (Black Halo, 36%)
Winner 3: Rag & Bone, 80% (Phillip Lim, 20%)
Winner 4: Diane Von Furstenberg, 79% (Rebecca Minkoff, 21%)
Cannot believe A. Wang went down, but I'm kind of happy to see Rebecca Minkoff lose because I've been waiting over a year for a leather strap I purchased (when you had to buy them separately with the MAB and MAB mini bags).
I'm curious to see who would move forward in Vince vs. Splendid because both have some great modal cotton separates, but... I'll save my opinion for after--don't want to sway your vote! Elizabeth and James and Alice and Olivia are also a really nice match up, but I think its obvious whom I'm going with.
Weekly contests are entered to win a Marc by Marc accessory--not too shabby. Last week's winner won a key fob, which I think is a nice gift, because sometimes you want a classy key fob, but who wants to spend over $5 for a keychain (even if you call it a fob). Srsly.
So if you want to play, go to Shop It To Me Battle of the Brands Round 2.

Dolce Vita "Trinity" Studded Pumps $210 at Bloomingdales
She was wearing YSL Platform Booties when Tommy of Jak & Jil spotted her.

Another sighting that literally left me shaking, Ms. Carine Roitfeld and Ms. Lauren Santo Domingo. I felt bad pestering them for a picture, but they were absolutely flawless. I thanked them and Ms. Roitfeld had a polite 'merci' for moi aussi.

The best part of NYFW by far? Spotting Kate Lanphear. She is flawlessly beautiful in person. So chic, AND she was really nice. I asked her to take a photo, and she waited patiently while all kinds of people walked in front of me. I told her that I was a huge fan of her work, and she told me I was sweet! Ok, not groundbreaking dialogue, but she is my absolute idol, and I'm proud of myself for talking to her and getting decent pics. I didn't get her shoes, but check out the bracelets.

Quickie from Photobooth--what I'm wearing today. Getting it all in before Labor Day. Do you obey the "No white shoes after Labor Day"rule?
(Blazer: Elizabeth and James; tank top Loomstate for Target; jean shorts from Urban Outfitters; sandals from Pierre Hardy for Gap.)
