We're really quite lucky: not only do we get to present you, dear readers, with the need-to-know fashion trends and reveal the coveted answers to your impossible-to-find off-duty style inquiries, but we also get the pleasure of seeing some pretty amazing products on a daily basis! In the midst of our July reporting, we found ourselves obsessing over a wide range of things, including everything from a chic pair of penny loafers to a Twitter account. When we get this excited about a collection of finds, it's only appropriate to share them with everyone, so with much love and no further ado, we give you this month's edition of WWW: Hearts.
3.1 Phillip Lim Bowery Camera Bag ($625, 310.358.1988) in Natural
By now you're probably quite aware that we're completely obsessed with animal accents, but who can blame us? The print is perfect for fall and looks chic on just about everything, including this amazing new-for-fall Bowery Camera Bag by 3.1 Phillip Lim. Arriving at the Los Angeles store any day now, this slouchy suede bag is an excellent alternative to the season's many ladylike totes (which are lovely too) and will take you from work to the weekend without skipping a beat. We love the natural hue, shown above, but the bag is also offered in a gray animal print if that suits you better!
Lou Doillon's Twitter: @daloulou
Whether she's spray tanning in the Gossip Girl trailer, dining at Hotel Costes with her closest pals, or pausing to memorize her lines at Gare De Lyon over un café, Lou Doillon is always gracious enough to Twitpic her seriously chic, jet-set life. Doillon's play-by-play commentary lets us feel like we're by her side in Deauville, admiring an absurdly gorgeous 10-kilo Givenchy haute couture dress (as seen in her photo, above) or flitting from Ibiza to Versailles to Paris as her chosen pal de voyage-even if it's just for a moment.
Alexander Wang Karmen Patent-Leather Loafers ($445)
While ladylike dressing is definitely getting loads of buzz for fall, that doesn't mean you should give your borrowed-from-the-boys basics the old heave-ho. In fact, why not reinterpret the fifties-redux trend via a pair of Alexander Wang's Karmen Patent Leather Loafers? These classic slip-ons would look wonderful with some of the Wall Street-influenced pieces from Wang's fall collection, or you could simply style them with some cuffed skinny jeans to make your own Marant-inspired ensemble. In addition to Wang's offering, we also love Bass' Wayfarer Penny Loafers ($89) in black patent; the price is quite agreeable and the shoe's low-cut silhouette is flatter for a wide range of feet.
Dior Nail Polish ($21) in Black Sequins
While we can't all wear or afford Dree Hemingway's dark shimmery Ferragamo dress, there is a way to get a touch of her glitzy look via Dior's newest polish, Black Sequins. Metallics-both in fashion and beauty-are back in a big way this fall, but there's no need to wait for the autumnal months to start trying the trend. Just pick up a bottle of this polish and you'll be set!
Lancome Juicy Tube ($18) in So Teen Vogue
Lancome's newest Juicy Tube color was created by the amazing Eva Chen-she's Teen Vogue's Beauty Director and one of our favorite people of all time-in honor of the 10th anniversary of this wildly popular product. The vibrant raspberry shade is simply perfect, totally flattering, and is part of a sweet, limited-time offer on Lancome's website. To get your hands on this must-try tube, simply visit Lancome.com, pick out and purchase any Juicy Tube, then enter the code TEENVOGUE at checkout. So Teen Vogue will appear in your cart-for free! Talk about a beautiful deal...
Pamela Love Jewelry
We have been mooning over Pamela Love's edgy jewelry collection for some time now, but we're definitely not the only ones. Love's creations have appeared on important runways (including Zac Posen, Yigal Azrouel, and Twenty8Twelve) and TV shows (on True Blood, Eric wears one of her pendants), plus style icons like Mary-Kate Olsen and Sienna Miller are big fans of her work. Oh, and did we mention that Love is part of the latest crop of talent to be nominated for the prestigious CFDA Fashion Awards? That's right, Love is one talented lady. While all of her striking pieces are noteworthy, we're currently crushing on the beautiful Arrowhead Necklace ($335, 212.219.2688), Sterling Silver Obsidian Arrowhead Ring ($550), and the slightly gothic Sterling Silver Talon Ring ($300), but her whole collection is definitely worth seeing!
Kate Moss by Mario Testino Book ($500)
If you're searching for the next great addition to your repertoire of coffee table books, look no further than Kate Moss by Mario Testino. The 230-page limited-edition book takes a rare glimpse into the lives and minds of these two definitive legends in fashion, making it an absolute must-buy for all style aficionados. With over 100 intimate images from Testino's private archive and a look back on the personal and professional relationship of this iconic collaboration, it has moved straight to the top our list.
J Brand / Proenza Schouler Jeans ($550)
When the creative minds at J. Brand and Proenza Schouler unite, we can expect something pretty amazing to result. And that is precisely what happened with their exclusive collaboration for the Proenza Schouler F/W 10 collection: PS's first jean ever produced! The High Waisted Painted Jeans take printed pants to a whole 'nother level of cool thanks to the hand-painted splattered graffiti effect, which is available in three different variations: blue/black, black/white, and black/black. Sure they're expensive, but since they're only available for pre-order right now, that means you've got plenty of time to save up before they officially hit stores!-Jessica Baker
