Awesome Sale Stuff from Stewart + Brown

Stewart + Brown, you know 'em? Makers of my favey-fave tote bag pretty much ever. Organic pioneers, they say. I believe 'em. Why not? As is my wont, I checked out their sale stuff and only their sale stuff. My findings:

Love birds tote bag, $24. Oh, hey, look at that! An awesome tote bag. Mine's in a different color and pattern but I can assure you it is a superstrong weave, nice and roomy, and has a very useful pocket, in addition to being crazy cute. Recommended!

Ruffle slip dress, $89. Love those ruffles! With a pastel cardi and some kicky sandals, J.Crew better watch its back.

Collar scoop dress, $78. You can't really see the cute notched collar on the printed version, but it's still cool. Red ain't available, sadly.

Loopy tee, $42. How freakin' awesome is this? I really can't imagine anyone NOT liking this. Unless that person's name is "anonymous."

Happy Friday, everyone!

Tophshop Suede Wrapped Stone Necklace Is Making Me EVEN MORE STOKED For Topshop To FINALLY OPEN!

($85, Topshop)
Seriously? This is Topshop? The rough-hewn wrapped stones remind me so much of Alexis Bittar! I'm in. By the way, the much-delayed New York Topshop is (allegedly) opening APRIL 2! Start lining up yesterday.

A Quick, Little GG Fix

The CW has been leaving us high and dry lately with Gossip Girl repeats every Monday (boo!) ... So we thought we'd just give you a quick fix of some GG love.

I want to raid Leighton Meester's trailer/Blair's wardrobe. She's just the cutest.

The Art of Shoes

Lately I have been seeing all of these amazing sculptural shoes. Although they don't seem very wearable, they are beautiful to look at. Shoes shown: by Ruth Davies.

Unattainable Yet Enviable: Kate Bosworth's Mulberry Jenah Bag

I didn't personally see Kate Bosworth or her Mulberry Jenah bag at Fashion Week, but both looked gorgeous. You can't be Kate Bosworth, but if you've got $1,150 to drop, that Jenah bag can be yours!

It also comes in silver, white, and gold on the Mulberry site (ew, sorry, no metallics this time around!) and turquoise, which I'm not loving quite as much -- the black is so on point.

($1,195, Mulberry, Shopbop)

Steve Madden Revenu Shooties!

($129.95, Steve Madden, Nordstrom)
'Sup, stud? True, these Steve Madden Revenu heels are CRAZY high, but I like the gradient effect and the possible homage to studded heels past by, I'm guessing, Giuseppe Zanotti, Fendi, or Balmain. WANTS!

CRAZY WACK Hayden-Harnett Sale At Luna Boston!

Remember how I was chasing after that Hayden-Harnett Jinhee patent tote for a minute, and then it sold out RIGHT as I was about to buy it? Yeah?

Well this Hayden-Harnett Ibiza tote is on SUPER sale at Luna Boston, and it sorta reminds me of the Jinhee tote a wee bit. Anyway, seriously, it's a STEAL for a Hayden-Harnett bag.
($135, Hayden-Harnett,
It's also massive, which is a plus. You know, because especially in this economy, more is... more!

Marni Suede Platform Slingbacks

($770, Marni,
Marni? Hey girl. Damn girl. You lookin' good as HELL with some fly-ass purple two-tone suede uppers and wood cone heel. DAMN girl. Call me.

Fashion Interrupted For Some Sad Pet-Related News

You guys. FashionBinge co-founder Catherine's kitty Xena took the red eye to kitty heaven this morning. Rest in peace, little lady. You and I may have had our disagreements (like, every time your ferocious claws met the thin skin on the back of my hand, which was every time I ever tried to pet you ever), but it was sad to see you go. I'm sorry for the times I shouted at you when we lived together (even though you basically deserved it because you weren't the friendliest kitty, but maybe that was your opposite-day way of expressing your love. And maybe every day of your 12 years was opposite day.) In kitty heaven (should you make it there), all hands are scratching posts.

CB2 Gives Mad Men's Don Draper His Own Couch!

($799, CB2)
Naming a couch (two couches, actually) after the hottest man on TV? Well played, CB2. All that's missing is a cigarette and beautiful, beautiful Jon Hamm. Speaking of Jon Hamm, I wouldn't mind nerding it up and engaging in some fan-fic role playing wherein I get to "be Joan Holloway," and get gangsta 10 ways from Sunday with Don Draper on said "Draper" couch. If ah may be so bold.

Two Brand-New Isabella Oliver 365 Jersey Maxi Dresses

British brand Isabella Oliver -- known for their upscale maternity pieces -- just unveiled their 365 Collection of everyday women's clothes. My two favorite pieces are the jersey tank maxi dresses. Observe:

($290, Isabella Oliver 365)
I love the black-and-white stripes of alternating sizes, and I'm not crazy over ties worn as a scarf, but I AM crazy for it worn obi-style like in the shot above. AND it's got pockets for extra comf factor/ spare change! It's pricey, but I could see myself living in a dress like this over the summer. Plus, think of all of the fun shoe and accessory options!

($270, Isabella Oliver 365)
Similar to the dress above, but asymmetrical and slightly ruched on the side.

And, bridal sorts, while I have you here, check out Isabella Oliver Parisienne dresses that'd make perfectly lovely bridesmaid dresses:
($325, Isabella Oliver 365)
These satin-and-chiffon dresses with separate wrap belts are not inexpensive, but absolutely wear-after-the-wedding-able, and not in that "no-seriously-I-SOOOOO-will" way that people say but rarely mean.
