When my friend Suzie sent me images of these slippers by Charles Phillip Shanghai, I immediately fell in love. Charles, originally from Milan, moved to Shanghai years ago with his best friend and design partner Sheila. Inspired by their new life in Shanghai’s French Concession, the ease of the Moroccan babush, the elegance of the English gentry slipper and the freshness of striped cottons and soft colorful linens, the Charles Phililp Shanghai slipper was born. Soon to be available in select Bloomingdale’s locations, Colette, and Luisa Via Roma, you can score these puppies for only $98 a pair.
I wish I could have stayed long enough in NYC to see the opening of Alexander Wang‘s first flagship store in Soho. I mean, how rad is the enormous steel cage and fur hammock enough to fit 3?

Perfectly faded and broken in jeans and chinos from Closed’s Spring 2011 Collection.
Full lengths, sheers, lace, fringe, florals and flares are staying strong and continuing into Zimmermann‘s Fall 2011 Collection and that is just fine by me. I’ll take those shoes too – in black and nude.
