sale of the week.

red topsiders 60 bucks at sperry's website.
*maybe you're thinking. why would i buy summer shoes in mid august? well i'll tell you why. these shoes will not change next year. seriously sperry will have the same color combo and the price will be 90 dollars. so save yourself 30 bucks and you can wear them for the rest of the summer and all of the indian summer.

h&m magazine.

i pick up their magazine every season. it is really sweet. and they do a very nice job of presenting their merchandise in sweet ways. h&m has so much stuff in its stores that some things get lost in the shuffle or glanced over. here are four of my favorite images.

huge fan of the bracelets and the big shoulders. but you already knew that. 
sequin blazer. duh. 
i really like these leggings. and according to the mag they are only 19.95 USD.

more from caroline? duh!

carrrroolllllllllliiiiiiinnnnnnnnnneeee. she's so fine
the B&N Nation is certainly familiar with Caroline. She seriously looks this awesome EVERYDAY. UNREAL. i am continually blown away by how awesome she is. lets draw a little inspiration from what she has done here.
her big shouldered Zara shirt is totally sweet. her tights under her shorts have already provided me with fodder for a post. 
everything about this outfit is totally awesome. i love the leather blazer. but her shoes are very different and sweet.  make sure to take note of her skirt and bracelets.

Gianni Agnelli.

This dude was awesome. He was THE modern italian businessman. he was incredibly wealthy and totally sweet. here is his nytimes obit. he was known as a man of incredible taste and fashion. he achieved this by doing things in a very different and nuanced way. that is what B&N is all about.
from these two LIFE photos from 1967 you can see what I'm talking about.
his tie purposefully put to the side. and his watch over the buttoned sleeve. i'm going to try my tie to the side tomorrow, but everyone will assume i didn't look in the mirror before i left home. i'm sure that his watch is a patek philippe so until i bump up my wristwatch game i'll leave mine under my shirt.

look at this awesome suit. gianni only wore the finest bespoke suits.

jil sander dude stuff.

jil sander for uniqlo. just awesome basic stuff.
i really like this rough tight grey blazer i recently picked up from my favorite thrift store.

beards of the week: the gay blades

i dont understand their name nor do i care. this song totally rocks and their beards are good.
this description is hilarious to me: "The Gay Blades are a two piece from New York City and play an acerbic brand of Trash Pop. What is Trash Pop, you ask? Trash pop is what happens when two keenly observant wannabe hipsters write and record songs the same pair couldn’t possibly pull off live, and make up for their missing bass player with consistent TNT like performances and a heaping spoonful of swagger" - from music remedy.

erin wasson. pinko. duh.

this is erin wasson. total babe. photographed by terry richardson. for pinko's fall 2009 ad campaign.

taylor warren and mira????? noooooooo way!

this is copied straight from Altamira - models street style blog. i couldnt have dreamed for a more awesome post to run into this morning.

Taylor Warren as edited by Russia's Miroslava Duma [you must remember my girlfriend Mira and of course the awesome taylor warren]

Miroslava Duma - "great pic...the girl, the style, the expectation of something good-looking up into the clouds"

Miroslava Duma, "funny beautful and shy girl...but she shouldnt hide THOSE awesome legs))) ...the bag is gorgeous"

Miroslava Duma - "I love this as a closer since it shows her genuine reaction to the rain she s been expecting at first pic)) it shows that she is still a small child in her heart and that is so wonderful)"

For those of you that don't already know Taylor Warren, she's been photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth for VOGUE Gioello, starred in an Urban Outfitters catalog, and has appeared in numerous other fashion magazines.

And for those of you that might not be aware of her, Miroslava Duma is a well known editor from Moscow whose work started at Harper's Bazaar Russia and is now a contributor to L'Officiel Russia, Glamour Russia, the style section at Russian OK Magazine, and Tatler Magazine Russia. She also has a huge humanitarian heart and is currently spending time with a foundation to help people with mucoviscidosis. Beneath each photo, you will find Miroslava's editorial thoughts as she "thinks out loud" while organizing the photos.

Big thanks goes to Taylor for the shots and Big Hugs to Miroslava for taking the time to look through the photos!
