I absolutely can not pick just one Carrie, they are all very summery and chic, sexy, bold--- You have exquisite taste!

Anika said...

I'm a sucker for anything printed (almost) and the quality of your choices has me overwhelmed...I couldn't single one out!

p.s. hope you are nicely easing into the weekend (have a great one)

p.p.s. I more than meant it...if you see anything you like on the supre site, let me know and I'll organise to send it your way (cheaper than postage from the site...probably )

Ciao bella!

My fave is Etro. It has a tribal theme to it, and I don't have much of that in my closet right now.

Julie Magers Soulen said...

It's so fun looking at new fashion on your site!

You're so right about short & patterned being the perfect blend. I'm obsessed with that one Tori with the triangles; in fact, you've reminded me that I need to track it down & put it on my sale watch list.
