Mmm, leather.

Mmm, leather.

You know what's way more adorable than children in brightly colored tutus and sequins? Children in architectural cotton shirts and caramel-colored leather d'orsay flats. Say hello to minimalist fashion for kids. {Wall Street Journal}

Have you ever picked up a brand new Lady Dior bag and thought, I wish I could smell like this? Well, now you can, for $275 a bottle. Dior perfumer François Demachy has created a scent that smells of leather and a hint of "lipstick, tissues and imagination." Style.com calls it an "instant olfactory classic." {Style.com}

American Apparel has added the first -- and only -- woman to its recently remodeled board of directors: Colleen Brown, the former chief executive of Fisher Communications. There's little doubt that Brown was appointed in part because she's a woman -- and isn't that a little sexist? {New York Times}

Lindsey Wixson takes a walk through the magic wardrobe for Vogue Japan's September issue, clearly inspired by Dolce & Gabbana's fall 2014 collection and runway show. More striking than the many headpieces and and tweed suiting is Wixson's eye makeup. Do we call it raccoon eyes? "Artisanal Twiggy?" (Steff's label.) You decide. {Fashion Copious}
