Angel is the Centerfold

Whether or not you're into football or into the 'Skins, there's no denying these Redskinettes are smokin' in Belabunda's Mermaid bikini. The halter-style tops are covered with lightweight discs that look like scales. The bikinis in this picture are mix-matched; normally the tops and bottoms are the same color and all bottoms have a contrasting lace trim.

Check out Belabunda's other styles. They're cute, funky and totally fun to wear. They are also very limited edition, so get yours soon!

They're Heeeere!

We've been waiting for November 18's leather bags for months, and the result is sweeter than we could have imagined. The oversized shoulder bag is ruched at the top and the handles are covered in leather. The clutch has an ingenious handle and pleat details. The bags come in black and white.

Also check out November 18's one-of-a-kind necklaces. The pieces are composed of lightweight chains, asymmetrically placed beads and pearls, and finished with a raw silk ribbon at the closure. If you're a smart shopper, you'll notice similar (but we think overdone and not as nice) pieces at Barney's for about 10x the price.

Hot New NYC Boutique: Smith on Sullivan

One of the most talented designers we know, Kareen Smith, has opened her own boutique in the Village. If you're in NYC you should stop by and say hello. The store is filled with the most adorable undies and bikinis, hard-to-find European skincare products, vintage pieces Kareen has collected throughout the years (she has been a stylist for years and her taste shows in her selection), and of course, the latest by Kareen herself.

Her summer collection is to die for. She uses the lightest, softest, sheerest, gauziest materials to create pieces to make you look and feel beautiful in the hot city summer. Our faves include the Safari Dress that will take you into the bush in elegance; the Grecian Dress that will make you look like a goddess; and the Delphinium Blouse that will travel stylishly with you all summer long.

Don't worry if you won't be in New York anytime soon. Unsung is the only place to buy Kareen Smith Designs online anytime.

We Don't Care About Celebrity Sightings...

we'd much rather spy on people we know.

The Apple flagship on 5th Avenue documented the 1st 24 hours of the store with a live webcam, and we spotted our favorite web designer, J (name withheld to protect his top secret identity), cruising by on his bike at 11.

You can't hide from us--we have eyes everywhere. MWAHAHAHA-MWAHAHAHAAA!
