Have you started your back-to-cool shopping? If not, check out Urban Outfitters' fresh Fall duds. For the girlie hipster, peep UO's selection of mini-floral skirts and frocks like this cute moody print dress. Side note: Doesn't the model resemble Michelle Monaghan? Trippy. Hard-edge scenesters can revel in the tumultuous array of '80s-inspired blazers and printed body-con pieces. There's also an abundance of wicked footwear, including this dope cobalt pair from LD Tuttle for Colonial Madness. Really, there's something for every gorgeous girl out there — including Diane Kruger. The actress was spotted wearing a striped top and floral dress from UO earlier this week.
>> Erin Wasson debuted round two of her three-year RVCA collaboration last night, and it was like the Alexander Wang after-party that didn't happen, except with a clothing presentation — Wang was even there. The crowd was bumping, it was hot and sweaty, and jello shots were involved; as for the clothes, pure Erin: lots of black, leather, ripped denim, and sheer with a crochet dress and crushed velvet pants thrown in for good measure. Tiffany Tuttle of LD Tuttle contributed the rocker boots, which are actually unisex, but it was clear who the life of the party was — Erin herself, who jumped onstage with the models, screaming, flitted from guest to guest, and then plopped down spread-eagle on the floor and kicked her leopard-print booties off.
Funky-footwear fans, if you haven't come across LD Tuttle, now is the time. I discovered the brand when I fell in love with a cutout boot from its Autumn collection. I knew there had to be more where that came from, so I did some digging. Indeed, I stumbled upon a treasure of off-kilter footwear that is not only striking but comfortable. The price tags aren't cheap but you're paying for quality; the shoes are all made in Italy. Fans include Erin Wasson, Natalia Vodianova, Mary-Kate Olsen, and moi.
Oh, and in case you're wondering, they didn't have my size in the boots, so instead I got a similar, less-expensive pair from Colonial Madness, the LD Tuttle and Urban Outfitters collaboration brand. I lived happily ever after. The end.

LD Tuttle is a dream brand for a certain kind of independent girl that likes her accessories trendy but not immediately recognizable. The fall collection is packed with the requisite grays and off color neutrals, bursting with ankle booties and straps galore, and it has just enough suede to make us swoon. In other words, it has everything a Williamsburg wants without saying screaming I bought this season's "it" shoes. Community member Style Bite is positively drooling over the collection. Thus it is no surprise that Coutorture favorite and Williamsburg (and now Soho) staple Oak has a great stockist for the fall collection. We took the liberty of doing a little round up of the shoes we like best.
We've been hearing whispers about LD Tuttle for a few months now, by way of the line being carried by OAK and Steven Alan. LD Tuttle, launched in 2005 by husband and wife team, Richard Lidinsky and Tiffany Tuttle, is really picking up steam this summer with a collection that features cut-out flats and heels. This particular aesthetic has been successful for many designers this season (i.e. Opening Ceremoney and Troupe to name a few at the same relative price point) in part, because it offers something as breathable as ordinary sandals but not quite as flimsy. Tiffany Tuttle, in addition to hitting the mark this summer with her ventilated shoes, is a designer that seems to have the resume for staying power. Educated at Princeton, she pursued fashion by way of a post graduated degree from FIT. After her studies commenced, she worked for Givenchy in Paris and then as an associate designer for Rebecca Taylor. Once Tuttle realized her dream was to design footwear and accessories, she packed up and moved to Milan to study the craft. Tiffany Tuttle isn't your average Lower East Side hipster who happened to get lucky in outsourcing to the right places and knowing the right people. At this lucky time in the season, most of LD Tuttle's Summer offerings are on sale which makes this the perfect time (if you haven't done so already) for a test drive.
