PUMPED: Nobody wants to think about fall apparel when it's barely June -- unless it's to get a jump on a seriously covetable item. We hear from Smith Street style emporium Epaulet that they just received exclusive early delivery of the fall '09 Melissa & Vivienne Westwood Anglomania shoes like the "Lady Dragon" pump pictured here ($149). Don't assume you can just swing by Barneys for these suckers come September - Epaulet's the only retailer in the U.S. to carry them. More info here.
BULLSEYE: In its Red Hot Shop, the ever-zeitgeisty Target is featuring the Lil' Tweet Stitch Kit from one of our favorite Etsy sellers, Kathleen of the gorgeous Twig & Thistle blog. Even if you're not the D.I.Y. type, this cute (and easy) doll-making kit is just about the most perfect baby shower gift we can think of -- and it's just $14.99.
SAMPLE SALE ALERT: This is one of the biggies, people: Gucci is slashing its price tags by up to 30% on bags (that's right, we said bags) and other accessories. Better get over there and stock up: Shop online here.
