I know we’re in the middle of summer with most of us dressing in airy summer dresses, tank tops, denim cut-offs & flip flops. Or bikinis. So it naturally takes a lot to make me crave anything that’s non-sleeveless. But as soon as I laid my eyes on these items from BB Dakota‘s upcoming fall collection I was madly in love. Not only because these are all absolutely stylish pieces, but also because almost all of them are under $100 except for the leather jacket which is admittedly a little steep at $300. I’m not ready to part with my sundresses just yet, but I know I’ll be just as happy when fall rolls around.

UPDATE (07/26/2010): Finally, the regular price for the Zoe boots has dropped to an almost reasonable $175. But this price ain’t good enough for us. We found a way to get these darlings for the awesome price of $148.75 including free shipping! Just head over to Shoes.com, put the “Zoes” in your cart, enter promo code “SHOES15” which takes off 15% and voliá, you get the “Zoes” for under $150 which is less than half the price of the regular, re-introduction price. Yay! But hurry, I am not sure how long the promo will stay active!

If you’re acquainted with the style blogger blogosphere you’ll already know that Sam Edelman’s “Zoe” Harness Boots have made quite a glorious comeback last year and have landed on dozens of wishlists from fellow shoe addicts ever since. Unfortunately these Balenciaga-esque booties were reintroduced with a price tag that’s pretty hard to swallow: $350! Ugh! And up until now, more than half a year later, these are far from going on sale. People just keep buying them full-price. And even if you’re lucky enough to find these booties on sale somewhere there’s either only size 10 left or the shop is out of your size before you can complete your order. But, finally, you have a chance to get these booties for a whole lot less ($280 instead of $350; you’re saving $70!). Lord & Taylor is currently running a promotion where you can take 20% OFF regular and sale price items and they happen to have the Zoe boots in all sizes available right now. Just enter coupon code “SIMPLE” at checkout and save a big chunk of cash! But hurry, the offer is set to expire tomorrow (03/15/2010). Oh, and did I mention you’ll get FREE SHIPPING as well? Score!

Alright, listen up all you Kim Kardashian haters who blasted her in one of my previous posts: if you don’t like her here, just click away! If you’re still reading, then I’m going to consider you Team Kim. And I don’t care what anyone says, Kim’s bod is sick and she is totally gorgeous. So what if she likes tight. Now’s the time, not when she’s 80. So I say Kim in lacy Preen, with bright pink nails and Veronica Lake hair? Yeah, baby!

I remember falling in love with this Bill Blass ruffle blouse sometime last year. The soft silk, the flattering color and the perfectly shaped ruffles were simply to die for! Most things on my wish list are either shoes or dresses, but this blouse made me swoon and shooted straight up on no. 1. However, I quickly learned that everything comes at a price… and this one was as high as $1.990.

Celebrities Love Bill Blass

Leighton Meester wore the Bill Blass blouse (though I think hers was a modified version because it had more and smaller ruffles) in an episode of Gossip Girl while Rihanna wore it on the InStyle cover of the August 2008 issue.

I think it’s beyond debate that bebe‘s interpretation of the Bill Blass blouse doesn’t even come close to the superb quality of the original, but if you are all about frills and ruffles this ruffled top might fit your bill as the overall look resembles the Bill Blass original. Also available in black, white and tea rose.

Especially since they offer to slash 25% OFF of their already moderate prices. The promo code “25nfine” is valid until July 30, and is applicable to new arrivals as well as already reduced shoes.

My personal recommendation are the blue suede “Wasima” platform pumps by Jessica Simpson. I received mine yesterday and have been flaunting them around the house for several hours already. They are beyond gorgeous! Get them for $72.71 instead of the regular $96.95 and it will be one of the best shopping investments you’ve done this year, I promise!
