I always thought that NY carried so many interesting brands!

There are a few stores in SF that carry a lot of good things, but I still find it really difficult to find some brands that I'm interested in, like Sacai and Tom Scott.

So there's Cielo, which carries a really good selection of Dries (clothes and shoes), Yohji, Ann D., Ann Valerie Hash. Cielo Blu that carries Y's, Vanessa Bruno, MM6. Susan, which carries a lot of brands including Marni, Comme, Junya, Lanvin, Balenciaga (this is where the really rich ladies shop). Nida, which carries a really good selection of Isabel Marant and Etoile Isabel Marant. MAC (Modern Appealing Clothing), that carries Margiela, Tsumori Chisato, lots of men's Dries. My new favorite, Cotton Sheep, which carries womens and baby clothes from Japan. And then the typical Union Square fare (I mainly go here for the department stores, GAP, H&M, etc).

Tourist - Thanks for your input. I'm actually very keen on investing in a pair of nice ankle boots because tall boots make my legs look short (i'm only 5' 1"). What is Gimme and where is it? Or is it an online store?

Thanks Tourist! That site has great shoes! I think I might wait a while and see if it goes on sale. Mona Moore's out of my size anyhow.

oh my god...
*drool*
i went and saw dries fw 06 at selfridges in london...
it's so much better in person it's ridiculous...
had no time to check shoes but i will go back later..

i was absuloutely gutted because with the exchange rate it made no sense for me to buy it in london..
can't wait to go back and see what the US stores have...
so much gorgeousness...

the selection at liberty is SO different from selfridges...
it's gonna be interesting to go back to nyc and see what it looks like there...


i like how he has started doing little t-shirting tops each season now...
little affordable tops to go with the heftier pricetagged pieces...
got a lovely blk knit top with a knot at one shoulder yesterday at liberty..
basically it sums up the collection in one piece...and at a very nice price...
very smart and cool...
i liked my top so much i wore it out of the store......

still not seeing much in the way of shoes other than the wedges which seem to be everywhere......

I got my invitation to the spring trunk show at Barneys, and it is gorgeous I'm not sure *why* I got it as I don't own any Dries, but perhaps this is a little tap on the shoulder telling me I should :p

It's a watercolored sketch of a bright outfit from the spring collection on extremely thick cardstock--quite lovely.
