They should've really released this colorway but the powers-that-be decided not to, so all we have is these images to ponder upon.
Bass has been around for years and when I was younger they were extremely popular with the prep crowd. Here are a couple of nice affordable options of wingtip suede brogues called the Barret in taupe and dark brown. Very nice looking shoes! Available now @Bassshoes.harborghb.com for only $79.
Gap is going to make their 1969 Denim line into it's own entity and into a high-end brand. They pulled Rosella Giuliani from 7ForAllMankind to head the line but she still has to answer to Patrick Robinson. CEO Glenn Murphy wants to make 1969 his "shining star". I have a pair of 1969 jeans and they are one of my favorite pairs of jeans. I'm actually going to wear them today.

Alaia is very popular among the celebrities these days and the detailing is so intricate that it looks more like a piece of art! From the light brown Leather Wedge Sandals with the 4.5" heel priced at $2090 to the Perforated Oversized Leather Tote for $2385 which comes with a vanity mirror and a blush leather pouch. But the black leather Lace-Front Peep-Toe ankle boots are the winner out of the bunch for $1805. I also like the boxes that they come in. They look like they put a lot of work into their products. All are available now @ Net-A-Porter.com.
Portfolio cases seem to be popular these days so here are two very luxurious pieces. One in the classic Monogram Canvas Print (which out of the two will probably be the most affordable one) and the other is in exotic black python leather. They both belong to LV's Pre-Fall 2010 collection.
YSL's new impala fur bag looks pretty interesting to say the least! For all you animal lovers out there don't get all bent out of shape because you probably are wearing something leather right now as we speak. Very limited with only 55 made so don't wait around if you are interested. Available now @ Colette.fr for $2404.
Barnabe Hardy formerly of Balenciaga has this nice-looking jacket in black lamb leather and another in navy suede. The black one is from his Fall/Winter 2010 collection and the suede navy jacket is from his Spring/Summer 2010 collection.
Please forgive me for the late postings but better late than never. H&M's new Fall/Winter 2010 Collection has these two nice looks minus the scarves (They are a little overwhelming!). I really like the grey wool military-style blazer pictured first in it's slim fit.
These khaki-colored sneakers with the cream piping are my favorite from Mr. Louboutin's new "Rantus" sneaker collection so you know what that means (Uh hum remember I'm a known shopaholic. Store associates know me by first and last name.Lol!). Or maybe this will be a nice gift for my birthday coming up in July.
LV's photoshoot location for their new Spring/Summer 2010 sunglasses apparently was shot in Manhattan overlooking the Hudson river during sunset. It reminded me of this picture that I took with my Blackberry at the Jacob Javits Center overlooking the same region and time. Feel free to use for a wallpaper. It's a little gift for my daily blog user's!

Mark McNairy 's 2010 New Amsterdam Shoe Collection preview looks good as always in navy and brown suede with his signature red brick soles. They are going to be available in June @ Endclothing.co.uk. Mark McNairy's favorite designers happen to be Junya Watanabe from Comme des Garcons, Daiki Suzuki from Engineered Garments and Ralph Lauren. Just a fun fact that I wanted to add. I always want to know who influences designers of today.
