Orla Kiely USA! 7/18/08 10:07 pm

Orla Kiely USA

Orla Kiely is one of my favorite designers - I always miss out on her bags whenever they go on sale at a few online stores. Recently one of my UK friends shared some great news - Orla Kiely online now has an US section, hooray!

I’ve already checked out their summer sale and am eyeing a few lovely handbags. I just have to decide on which one to get!

For a handbag, standard shipping is $15 via FedEx. Sure beats their previous $100+ shipping from the UK.

Penny loves Kenny… and I love them! 3/13/08 9:51 pm

Penny loves Kenny Gazebo Flats

Okay, this is sort of bordering on too girly and almost a bit chabby chic, but aren’t these Penny loves Kenny peep-toe Flats the sweetest you’ve ever seen?! I guess it’s the anticipation of warm weather that’s giving me a little spring fever, but I just love the mint green upper with the tiny bow, tiny scallop trim and tiny delicate daisy cutouts! I would totally wear these with some cute jeans, frilly top and some dangly earrings.

These also come in yellow, light pink and ivory. Spring will definitely be in your steps if you’re wearing these.

Spring Shrooms 1/5/08 8:30 pm

Xhilaration Large Tote Bag - Green MushroomsHappy new year! I don’t know about you, but I’ve already got spring fever on my mind. Sure the year is just starting, but now is just the perfect time to get those spring accessories in the cutest colors and patterns!

For example, this Xhiliration Green Mushroom tote bag from Target is the perfect shopping accomplice. It’s roomy at 20″ x 11″, super versatile with shoulder strap, double handles, removable strap, and has a convenient magnetic closure. It’s made of canvas with faux leather (yay!) and 100% polyester lining. I’d totally take this everywhere with me in the new year!

The best part is the price. Super clearance for just $8.99!!! At this price I’d get one in every color.

Mod Squad Wallet @ Anthropologie 12/11/07 9:18 pm

Mod Squad WalletOkay dollybirds, this Mod Squad Wallet has to be one of the cutest I have ever seen! It’s made by Orla Kiely, one of my favorite designers, made of supple leather, just the perfect size, and that shiny red turnlock closure really seals the deal in my book. What’s the best part? It’s currently on sale at Anthropologie for 40% off. You’re going to get a ton of compliments every time you whip it out. Get this groovy little wallet before it’s gone!

Green Tulips at Target 5/31/07 10:10 pm

Green Tulip Tie Front Top

So I’m making a Target run, getting some dish washing soap, Lysol wipes and kitty litter, and of course I had to visit their clothing section - saw this and just had to pick it up! Now how cute is this Tulip Tie Front Top? I love the tie front and the retro-style tulip print! It also comes in a bunch of cute prints and patterns such as this Brown Dot print (which reminds me of an amazing Michael Miller print I love called Disco Dot) and Green Fern (which looks much cuter in person). At $14.99 each, it can’t be beat! You can look super girly by pairing it with an a-line skirt or be cute yet casual with a pair of jeans. Run to your Target now before they’re gone!

Amy Butler Design 3/7/07 7:00 pm

Amy Butler Pearl Bag - Lime Pods
We are huge, huge fans of designer Amy Butler here at Twee, and we were just so excited to find out she now has an online shop! Amy & Co design the most gorgeous fabric inspired by nature, with a combination of great patterns and colors.

There are so many beautiful items in her shop it’s hard to pick a favorite. So far, I really adore this Pearl Bag in lime green. Made with 100% heavy-weight cotton twill and lined with a coordinating print, it’s such a stylish shape and versatile size, and you can totally dress it up or down. While you’re at her shop, out the Pillows and Stationery sections and you’ll see how amazing Amy & Co are are combining classic and modern print with a punch of bright colors!

Marimekko Rock Paper Trainers 11/22/06 10:18 pm

Rock Paper TrainersOh.My.Gawd. I literally *gasped* when I visited one of my favorite online stores and saw these Rock Paper Trainers today. Retro Converse-style trainers with durable canvas printed with bright red dots on an even brighter orange background. On top of that, I almost fell out of my chair when I found out these were made by Marimekko, the world-famous design house in Finland. Eeeeeeeee, how much more perfect can a pair of shoes get?! And hey, it happens to match Twee!

If I get my hands on these, I don’t know if I’d actually wear them because they’re such beautiful little works of art. I should really buy two pairs. ;)

Confetti For Your Feet! 10/18/06 1:32 pm

Camper Twins FlatsHow adorable are these Twins flats by Camper? This is the concept behind Camper Twins line: “Twins are asymmetrical, complimentary, each unique with its own personality, yet together they create a special harmony. Twins are a true compliment for those of you who defy the rules.” I couldn’t agree more!

The black leather upper and lining looks super-comfortable, with a rubber outsole for comfort and durability. With a 1 3/4″ heel, I bet I can wear these all day without having achy feet. Camper shoes are well-known for their quality and design - I love how these shoes look the same upon first glance, but if you look again, the pattern is really random, just like confetti fell on your shoes and sole! ;)

These confetti Twins are available at Zappos.com. Get a pair and have yourself a little parade!

Back to School, Twee Style 9/16/06 6:26 pm

Ocean Star series bags by Hanna Werning for Eastpak

Oh my, this adorable “Ocean Star” print by designer Hanna Werning makes me want to go back to school just so I can go around toting these Eastpak bags. Forget the old boring Eastpak with solid black, navy or olive canvas, go bold in graphic prints and rich colors - Fishpond Flush, Ocean Star, or Grasshopper Luck!

These sassy bags are available at eBags for 20% off - just find the pattern name in the pulldown and pick your favorite.

Give A Hoot 7/8/06 9:24 pm

Keds Eleanor owl print skimmersThese Eleanor Owl Print Skimmers by Keds have got to be the cutest skimmers I’ve seen this summer. A collaboration with illustrator Eleanor Grosch, these Keds skimmers feature canvas uppers printed in Grosch’s distinct design - stylized graphics, bold, earthy colors and whimsical critters. Eleanor Grosch has done some amazing posters for indie rock bands such as Death Cab for Cutie, Sleater-Kinney, Wilco, and Iron & Wine.

There is also a seahorse print as well as a llama print, but the owls - gotta have the owls. They’re by far the cutest of the three. These shoes will be limited edition, so get them before they’re gone!
