HE by Mango at $9.90

I just checked Mango's menswear line and there is a sale with items (like shoes, a windbreaker, and shorts) for $9.90! There are many other items that are at incredibly low prices! Take advantage! I am thinking about buying the Adam Lippes for Mango shorts above (at an incredible 14.90 price tag).

Current Obsession: Lanvin Lambskin Messenger Bags

You guys know how much I love a good Lanvin bag, right? Well, this one is no exception. The subtlety of the navy leather along with the sublime execution is driving me wild. Although it is still outside my budget range, I think that the bag has a reasonable price.

Available at LUISAVIAROMA.

Louis vs. Jeffrey

Clicking away on the pages of Sole Struck, I came upon the Jeffrey Campbell Barker shoe in Old Gold. Immediately, I thought of the yellow-golden oxfords Marc Jacobs did for Louis Vuitton. Although the two shoes have different shades of gold, the idea of a golden oxford was seen first at Louis.

What do you think? Are they or aren't they too alike?

Thom Browne will show in Paris

To showcase his SS2011 collection, Thom Browne has decided to ditch the New York runways for the ones in Paris. Thom will show his eponymous collection the last day of Paris fashion week, June 27th. I think the Avant-Garde Paris is better to show his designs because New York is usually about wearable and marketable clothing.

Matthew Williamson loves Gossip Girl as much as I do

British designer Matthew Williamson collaborated with Gossip Girl's stylist Eric Daman to create the window above which is reportedly tied to the April 5 episode of the show. Blair Waldorf is going to be featured shopping at the Meatpacking District and wearing one of the designers designs. I wonder why they didn't use Williamson's new jumpers on the male mannequins.
