rocker suede

I might be obsessed with suede. And the new vests for Fall from Hayden-Harnett are too perfect...
The second one reminds me of something one of the "band-aids" would wear on Almost Famous. So just in case you are tempted by the leather shorts that Elle says are going to be a staple for this coming season it might be good to look towards more flattering leather options!

model luv

I really love the new Miu Miu campaign for Fall. Just gorgeous fashion. And I'm enthralled with this new girl Hannah Holman. I thought she was adorable in the Summer Urban Outfitters catalogs...

but she's flawless in this ad.

Style Inspiration: Janelle Monae'

Love this girls look! The picture above of new artist Janelle Monae' is featured in the September issue of Elle (which is quite good btw, aside from a bit about leather shorts) and I was totally taken with her.
Saddle shoes!!! I love that they are back! I want to channel her with these shoes by F-troupe

Hot Acid

Acid wash jeans spotted in the fall '08 collection @ Topshop

So I originally balked at the sight of the acid wash jeans that came out last summer. They just look so... so 80's. And I still haven't gone out and purchased a pair for myself (nor am I likely to) but I have been able to reconcile myself to them and concede that they can look nice on women over the age of 16. Like almost anything else they can be made elegant and age appro with a good jacket and grown up accessories. In fact I think they will look a lot better this fall then they did this summer.

Elegant acid wash, street style.

So don't take that pair you bought at Urban Outfitters down to Buffalo Exchange just yet, there's still hope for them this coming season!
