A Dope Post

Been seeing pins of this swimming chick all over Pinterest and actually pinned her myself a few months back; but it wasn’t until recently that I stumbled upon the source: Los Angeles based streetwear brand Stampd.  After perusing through their website I realized so many of their items are not only DOPE but also limited (usually to around 50 pieces).

Browse through a few of my favorite pieces below

grey on grey hat

100% leather bodega bag. limited to 50 pieces

lambskin leather snapback with printed lining. not yet available

tye dyed california one piece. limited to 50

Stampd Datejust Rolex. Limited to 10. Available 11/09/12

Yeah I admit some items might be a bit obvious, but who doesn’t secretly smile inside when someone walking by randomly tells you “that’s a Dope hat!”?

Also, don’t miss out on their event November 8 at American Rag on La Brea featuring limited collection pieces and one of a kind art.

Be A Good Model Like Naomi

Just because she threw her cell phone at her housekeeper a few years back, doesn’t mean Naomi Campbell can’t make up for it somehow.  Fashion For Relief, her non-profit charity, utilizes the popularity of fashion, designers, and runway shows to help raise money for those in need.

This time around, she has teamed up with online retailer Yoox.com along with designers 3.1 Phillip Lim, Dolce & Gabbana, Masha Ma, Moschino and Qiu Hao to create exclusive T-shirts celebrating the launch of Yoox.com in China.

At $35 each, here’s your chance to own some exclusive designer gear while doing good at the same time.

3.1 Phillip Lim – my personal favorite!

I Had A Killer CRSVR Halloween

Super excited to post my winning pumpkin for the #CARVECRSVR instagram contest.

My KillerCrsvr Pumpkin

Final 4 Pumpkins

The contest was hosted by CRSVR, a premier sneaker boutique with stores on State Street in Santa Barbara and  the Cosmopolitan hotel in Las Vegas.  Co-owned by the world famous DJ Vice, the store carries many limited edition and exclusive kicks, clothes, and gear for men and women by all the streetwear brands we know and love (i.e. Nike Sportswear, The Hundreds, Supra, and Beats by Dre to name a few).

Can’t wait for my $200 CRSVR gift card AND 3 CRSVR limited edition pocket tees!!!

So grateful for all the love and votes… It really made my halloween killer!

Not Your Everyday Jean

I have been a long time fan of artist James Jean, and even spent all my savings one day to purchase his limited edition Prada Fairy Bag.  So I was both horrified and elated when I happened upon his line of jewelry, objects, textiles, and prints with OVM. Horrified that it had taken me this long to find it despite my endless hours on the internet, and elated that from now on I would never miss his upcoming works.

Speaking of upcoming, James Jean/OVM for BLITZ Lane Crawford just released today! I cannot emphasize enough how much I am obsessed with everything on the site.  Sadly, I would have to file for bankruptcy if I fulfilled my dreams this time around.

See slideshow for pics of some sold out limited editions AND some still available. Get it if you can!

My First Step Into Kohl’s

Watch out Target, Kohl’s is stepping up its designer collab game with DesigNation, and Narciso Rodriguez is first up to bat! DesigNation sends designers we know and love off to foreign lands to gain inspiration for limited edition collections at more affordable prices.

Narcisco Rodriguez gained his inspiration from Istanbul and produced a collection that easily transitions from work to play. Launching November 7th @ 7am, the line ranges from $30-$150, and will only be available until the racks are empty.

Some of my favorites from the line below:

 

I personally get really excited when these designer collaborations come around because being obsessed with limited edition stuff doesn’t come cheap.

Entire lookbook and prices here.

p.s. Derek Lam is second up to bat in Spring 2013!

Barely Fall, But Ready to Spring Forward

As if we weren’t already excited enough about Target X Neiman Marcus coming holiday season 2012; Target has announced Prabal Gurung as their next designer collaboration scheduled for Spring 2013 (February 10 – March 23).  The 80-piece collection will range between $12.99 – $199.99 and will of course be limited edition.

There’s only one teaser pic for the collaboration thus far, but if the rest looks anything like his Spring 2012, Spring 2013, or Resort 2013 collections my wallet will be doomed!

what a tease!

neimans hit the bullseye

see all products here and here

i’m sure we all remember the target x missoni collaboration that was gone in a flash and lead to thousands of upset internet buyers (including myself). that’s why i’ve already set up my game plan for getting my hands on some of this limited designer gear on the cheap because who knows if i’ll ever be able to afford that proenza schouler ps1?

what do you think of the collection?
