Recently, I've really been impressed by The Gap. They actually have a few cute pieces, and unique colours. Plus, their scarves are amazing.

Last year, I got amazing lime green gladiators from The Gap. And my favourite Wellies, I got those from there.

I think they're going to have a comeback soon.

Oh my, that sounds like some of my friends; there fashion knowledge can be questionable at times :lol:

And I've been on a hunt for torn apart demin shorts (with tights it's love), but I haven't had any luck considering all the pairs I try on fit weirdly to my butt or are just too tight.
Oh, I'm getting a lot of inspiration from Phillip Lim's S/S collection [chic, cardigan, jacket], he makes sophisticated simple yet young and fresh, plus I absolutely love the spring-around colors.
As well Isable Marant and Doo. Ri collections, simply chic and classy but with more of an young-edge look put in.

wishlist stuff
  • Bubble Skirts.
    I seen a really nice light demin ones at Top Shop, it's a good alternative from the usual base jean skirt.
    Cashmere Black Skinnys.
    Perfect for September, back-to-school pant, plus with a tucked in basic white v shirt, cream blouse and platform gladiators, you just look put together.
    Motorcycle Boots.
    This is what I'm talking about. There's millions of ways paring boots with skirts, jeans dresses and such but this particular boot I love. The buckle, the slouch, stitching. Only if I were in England sigh.
    Charcoal [or light-gray] long sleeve Shirt.
    So basic, but I really need to buy one. What I love about simple shirts it's lovley to tuck-in skirts [bubble, a-line preferably] or pants and it can automatically played into simple chic.
    Neatural Trousers.
    I need to take a trip down to Gap since for woman, the trousers are making it's comeback and depending on how you ware it, I love how you look sophisticated in them. Sex and The City, SJP is a good example as well with Paris street-fashion.
    Perfect Leather Jacket.
    I still regret not buying this black bomber leather jacket a few months ago so I'm still in hunting-mode for one. Though this is fantastic, the brown-gray leather and zippers; mmm.

neonsx, that Phillip Lim cardigan is gorgeous; I want it so bad. Phillip is amazing, along with fellow asian designers Vera, Doo. Ri, and Thakoon. Shout-outs to oriental designers, they're all amazing, and I hope one day to be in the Amazing Asian Designers club. As Christian Siriano would say, "Asians are fierce". Hehe, okay, whatever, moving on.

I've never been to the actual store, but Kira Plastinina's collections look really cute. Next Forever 21? I dunno, but the fact that she's sixteen and started this empire is impressive enough; I'll definitely be checking out the store when one opens close to me. Her stuff looks really girly and trendy. Good for a season to pair with high-quality basics. I saw a few dresses on her site that would look great with a white Lacoste polo underneath. I love that look; polos + sundresses.

Todays Outfit was kind of Mediterranean Heiress Stranded On Nantucket: White eyelet sundress + Wayfarers, tortoise w/ grey tint + American Eagle gladiators + loose wavy carefree hair + wooden beaded necklace made by me + gold cuff bangle from Nice. I got it for dirt cheap in this adorable boutique. Gotta love Europe for costume jewellery. I've been inspired by the whole Mediterranean look thanks to all the previews for Mamma Mia.

Speaking of which, I loved the concept of Amanda Seyfriend's spread in Teen Vogue. Grungy grandmaish is going to be the inspiration for my fall wardrobe.

And also, because I'm a POLO FREAK, just thought I'd let you guys know, American Eagle has released the old polos again; 96% Cotton instead of 93%. I was getting worried, because the past two seasons' 93% cotton polos were so cheap and unflattering. I love heavy knit polos, they're just so much classier.

im not sure if I have a signature style, but i definately have stuff that I love and hate to wear. I don't go many places without my converses or vans, which i guess is a trademark of mine. I love old-fashioned and unique peices, preferably with a hippie/grunge/dark look to them. I like clothes that represent who you are, and what you stand for. Consequently, I stongly dislike commercial stores like abercrombie/hollister/ae. Not of offend anyone who likes shopping at those stores, I just personally dont like what they stand for. I really like anything with a 1960's affiliation, like tie-die. Although I love bright and unusualy colors, I tend to wear a lot of black [im not goth!) I also love wearing jewelry with meaning, like homemade hemp braclets and friendship rings.[/i]

I used to always wear jeans, tshirt/hoody, converse/vans.

Now I've gone all girly (I hate that word but I can't think of anything else to describe it lol) Not really girly though.

I still wear jeans, but I like to wear light coloured ballet style pumps and pretty jewellery (too much most of the time but...meh) and tops with lace and silky material...my favourite colour to wear at the moment is light blue...and i use ribbon to decorate clothes/hair/use it as a bracelet...

That does sound so girly ha ha

Abercrombie [which owns HCO], eh there law-suits with racial advertising completely turned me off. Plus why on earth do they have to make there stores so dark, cramped and blast annoying RandB/Pop music? It's a bit amazement of me how everyone can lust over there fashions, seeing as they keep doing the exact same style of apparel over and over again. Some of my friends have tube tops there from 3 years ago and when you look at them again today, it's pretty much recycled with a tiny bit of maneuvering of the print or shape.
Honestly, in my opinion the whole A&F/HCO chain is just way too overrated. I may see something there every once and while I'll buy but other than that, the store is a turn-off.

As for American Eagle, yes it often it gets plastered with teeny-boppers buying the logo hoodies and tee's or the the basic tank tops, but it's a great store to shop for basics. There website shows diverse preppy style; cardigans, tights, bangles, jersey dresses and such. The difference between A&F vs AE is, American Eagle pays attention to the runways, but they put a much more casual feel to it. That's probaly why the mainstream likes it so much, but for the most part, they don't have a clue ware the inspiration came from the particular dress or shirt. I absolutely hate anything logo-fied by AE though; ick, it's good to have a comfy AE hoodie for the days you don't feel like getting dressed up or just sitting by a camp-fire but parading around a logo ... I'm sorry but I find a bit tacky.
AE-Fashion-Wise, you can see it here with there button-blazor, Teen Vogue topped with many other international mags have been saying blazers + tweed coats are the perfect fall jacket, AE does a great job showing that.

Ack, anyway I didn't mean to write down such a longing post haha, and I gotta admit, sometimes when I'm in American Eagle I go "Why do I shop here again?", than usually Vampire Weekend starts playing or I see a really darling skirt and shirt :D

I love Jeans from American Eagle. They fit me very well :D

^Ughh I'm very worried, they released a whole new line of fits. I've been buying their Hipster fit since I could first fit into American Eagle clothes, and no matter how many jeans I try, nothing fits me like the Hipsters. I've tried J. Brand, Sevens, Tsubi, Citizens, Gap, Abercrombie, every denim brand under the sun, and nothing has a better fit than my dark, dark, dark wash Hipsters. So I'll be really depressed if the new line doesn't have a similar fit.

I like American Eagle because you can find it at every mall. It's really convenient, cheap, and sells stuff that I'll wear for the season but never again (gladiators, etc.). No one I know really shops there because I buy most of it first, so as far as repeats and copiers go, I'm pretty safe. Plus, their sundresses are adorable.

I hate Hollister. Whenever I go there, I have to go to the States (I'm Canadian). It's so dark, that whenever I actually buy something, I can't see the bills, and I'm not used to American money, so I get really confused, and the employees usually look at me like I'm mental or something. I hate how Hollister tries to be all whoo, California. I'm not into the West Coast look. And A&F tries to be all whooo New York, but it falls so short of what the 'New York look' really is. I own a few printed tank tops from there, you know, empire and babydoll fits, because those are kind of cute and logo free, and everyone I know mainly buys graphic logo tees from there anyways. But that's about it. I don't buy hoodies or anything like that, and if I am going to buy a polo, I figure I might as well invest a little more and go to Lacoste, because hey, an alligator is 10x cuter than a moose or a seagull.

Damn, I love Lacoste too much. Lacoste and Ralph Lauren Blue Label are probably the two affordable brands that I actually like everything from the collection. J. Crew is my thing too, but I avoid the chinos and stuff like that- aka stuff my mom might wear? I love J. Crew's shoes though, they've got some very cute stuff.

Speaking of cheap, affordable stuff, this is very embarrasing to admit lol, because as much as I try and avoid being the omg-I-care-about-what-label-is-sewn-into-my-clothes type of girl, sometimes it's unavoidable, but the other day, I was looking for the Charlie Bartlett DVD at Wal-Mart with my mom, and I found the most adorable sundress. I'll post a picture later, but it was only $15 (CAN), and the prints on it look like the artwork from an M.I.A. or Mika CD insert.

Question:
Good shops in NYC and in Boston?

Later this month my family is going down south to Boston, New York and Washington and I gotta' have a major shopping spree; NYC would be unforgiving with out one. I remember seeing this one ultra cute boutique there but I can not remember the name of it, it was vintage apparel mostly.
H&M, Laccost, Macy's, Target, UO are a must but I'm not exactly made of money, I have to keep it cheep or my parents will take a freak out lol.

ashFLASH, the dress sounds defiantly pretty, I'm taking it's colorful? The only problem I had with Wal-Mart there clothes tear and rip easily and can they shrink in the wash a bit. I bought a really nice cardigan there a while back and the fabric was starting to tear at the stitching.
