Greta Silk Party Dress by MINT JODI ARNOLD

If you're looking for a stand-out party frock & don't mind flashing a wee bit of flesh, then this could be the dress for you!
The boned bustier style bodice is sexy, while the little bubbly skirt adds a flirty naughtiness.
Just looking at this dress makes us happy! And rearing to enjoy the surefire attention at the party!
Another winner from the ever-dependable MINT Jodi Arnold.

VANS Surf Collection Fall 2008

Vans shoes tend to have a "more for men" image in these parts, but lots of gals (Avril Legvine, Gwen Stefani, Pink) out there wear them too.
Running a palate of earth tones & green materials (bamboo charcoal lined midsole for fungus & heat resistance, water-based ink & glue, natural hemp/corduroy/other premium textile uppers), the Vans Surf Collection Fall 2008 is designed with respect to the environment. These eco shoes are easy to pack & really travel-friendly, too.
Even when you're stressed out, you're just chillin' in these Vans :)
Head over to our store to see Japan-only designs! (not shown here)

The Vans brand has been synonymous with the "laid-back life" since its launch in 1966. Founder Peter van Doren started with some vulcanised-rubber-soled shoes out of a cornershop in Anaheim, California. The store offered 3 canvas styles, at prices ranging from US$2.49 to US$4.99. When customers (12 showed up) tried to buy them on the opening day though, it became clear that only the display models had been made. (Shoe boxes on the racks were all empty.) Van Doren & his partners then closed the shop & rushed off to make more shoes at the adjacent factory. Later that afternoon, when customers returned to pick up their orders, van Doren realised that he didn't have change money. The customers were handed the shoes anyway & asked to return the next day to pay. All 12 came back. ...Despite of (or maybe because of!) this lackadaisical beginning, Vans has grown into a global brand for the masses, loved by everyone from skate legends to beach bums to people who just like cool shoes.
