Oh hai, Senso’s new Delilah in Aztec and Haydin bootie.

Picturing either of these on my soles with a simple white tee and denim cutoffs.  I love bold shoes that become the star of a look, and are ones that you build an outfit around.  Luckily you won’t have to wait long for the Delilah boots since they’ll hit  Solestruck.com on July 1.  Remember the Alexander Wang Kori Off the Chain boots with the cutout wedge heel?  The Haydin boots are a decent doppelganger, if you don’t mind the MIA cutout wedge heel.  Available in both black and tan, the waxed suede boots go for AU$220 (includes shipping costs).  Email Senso for a mail order at info@senso.com.au.

**UPDATE**

If you can wait several months from now, Need Supply, Karmaloop, Oak, and LF Stores will be carrying the Haydin booties for winter.

Pegged as “free-spirited bohemia in the most structured of ways”, Australian brand STRUMMER‘s A/W 2011 collection strikes a chord with me.  Initial gut reaction?  Too buttoned-up for my taste.  That and I am unable to pull off the usually avoidable mid-calf length skirts.  But after scrolling through the collection twice,  the touches of lace, pattern dresses and leather skirts & jumpers drum up an undercover western vibe that helps to reverse my rushed judgment.  Add a wide brim leather hat to any of these looks and you’re GOLDEN.

Who else wouldn’t mind having the leather skirts and jumpers in their closets?

Smokey Rolls

 If Aerosmith made a modern day version of the “Crazy” video,  I’m pretty sure Australian label, Friend of Mine’s S/S 2011 collection would fit the wardrobe bill.  How smokin’ would circa 1993 Alicia and Liv look styled in the collection? From the concept to the styling, Alexandra of 4th and Bleeker absolutely nailed it.

Pretty How Town Collection

MyPetsQuare knocked it out of the ballpark with its Fall 2011 collection, featuring a mostly nude and pale color palette.  The shirts with sleeve cutouts that fall right below the shoulders, along with the navy polka dot pieces, are my favorites.

San Fran-based Shop Acrimony will soon be selling the collection.  For more photos, click HERE.

Corter Leather – For Japan Bracelets

corter leather for japan bracelet

If you’re looking for ways to support Japan, then please consider purchasing a limited edition For Japan bracelet by Corter Leather. The $20 bracelet features a hand painted red button as a subtle way to show support, and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross towards relief efforts in Japan.

Thanks to Christine of N’East Style, I first learned about Corter Leather. Based out of Boston, Corter is a one-man operation run by Eric, who had initially set a goal of raising $1,000 for the Red Cross. Well, he raised that goal amount by the end of the first day. A total of $16,000 (and counting) has been raised. I just ordered my bracelet yesterday and Eric will continue to create these as long as the orders keep coming in.  So get yours today HERE and let’s continue to raise awareness and show love for Japan.
