A few of my favorites....

Bouf is a concept created by owner Alex Griffin. He realized that in East London, many small scale designers were being driven from their marketplaces, replaced by mass produced brands. He then create Bouf, an online marketplace which connects the consumer with the small designer directly. What do you get in exchange? Beautifully handcrafted furniture and decor that is original and of exceptional quality. Genius.

Jill Lindsey

The designs from Jill Lindsey's Heartland collection are inspired by her home state of Kansas. The beauty is in the details; round playful buttons, large pleats, fabric flower appliques, and interesting necklines. Ladylike elements are mixed with flirty hemlines. Perfect for a cocktail party or a wedding.

3.1 Phillip Lim

3.1 Phillip Lim creates such lovely feminine designs. The Resort 2010 collection is no exception. With mixes of patchwork denim, lace, and florals, the end result is serene, yet punky. With menswear mixed in with blazers and baggy pants, lingerie was a predominant theme throughout. No wonder he is one of my favorites. Beautiful.

To find it go here.

Uniqlo is a favorite store of mine whenever I go to Japan. Now that they have one in Soho, I get to go whenever I head to the East Coast. It's a great store filled with essential well-made basics. Nothing overtly exciting, but things you will admittedly wear a ton. Now that summer is here, Uniqlo is a great place to find cut-offs, simple cardigans, and summery blazers to fill your needs.

Anna Sui

Anna Sui is a longtime favorite designer of mine since the early 90's. Before I could even fathom owning a dress or blouse by her, I tore pictures out of Vogue and plastered them to my wall. I love the perfect mesh of folk, dark victorian, and rock that defines her trademark designs.

Her Spring 2009 line is so fresh and fun.

I wish...

Loeffler Randall unveiled her lovely shoe line in 2004, then proceeded to melt our hearts with a fabulous handbag line starting in 2006, and then in 2007 a much sought after ready to wear line. How I wish money grew on trees... Or maybe just her shoes...

Perhaps I am jumping the gun slightly, but in preparation for my end of summer excursion to Portugal, I want to pick up some luxurious European resort wear. Kristina Ti is what I want.

Based out of Italy, Cristina Tardito is the creative mastermind behind this luscious line.

Classically European, effortlessly chic...

oh so pretty....
