If you were to have one perfect summer oxford in your wardrobe this spring, it would have to be our style MIKA.
She's so very lovely in every single way! Who can resist a little neon color in their summer outings and wait.....not only do you get that burst of color- you get "heart" chop outs that give it another element of lets say..........ADORABLE!
Its hard to resist this style and I don't think you can just stop with one color. We especially love the pink but we sure can kick up our heels in the spirited yellow or green!
Whatever the color that tickles your fancy, you can soon purchase this style on our on-line store!
Also find this style in the fabulous PINK coming soon on ModCloth.com!

Today we have a rare treat! Our designer Jules Kim has offered to sit down and talk a little about our first ever collection SP12.
She's a little bit shy and doesn't really like to do interviews or even be in the lime light, but we forced her to come out of her shell and chat with us about her experiences and this new line she is designing for.
Here we go:
B.a.i.t. -Can you tell us a little something about yourself?
JK- Well...what is there to say? Hm....I have been a shoe designer for close to 11 years working for various junior brands.
I have always had a love for shoes ever since I was a child. I remember putting new shoes right on top of my bed stand at night, anticipating the first day of school to come.
I was a sportswear designer before I got into shoes. A mentor once told me that once you get into the shoe business, it gets into your blood...and I think its really true.
B.a.i.t. - Can you tell us a little bit about B.a.i.t. and the story behind the brand?
JK- B.a.i.t. is an acronym for "but another innocent tale..." the reason why we started this brand came about in a very simple and innocent way.
I had been working quite a few years into my shoe career and always had this vision of what kind of shoes I wanted to design. I have always had a huge love for vintage, but finding vintage shoes in your size or in a condition where you can actually wear them comfortably was always hard. As much as I love the eras of the past and the clothing and accessories that go with it, I sometimes wished I could design them with updated colors or materials...
Last year finally presented some opportunities and I consulted with a few mentors and with family and friends...and decided to take the risk and go for it!
Our goal is to offer lovely vintage inspired silhouettes that are easy and simple for everyday wear. There are no real "bells" or "whistles" attached to our styles. We like to keep it simple and at an affordable price for today's modern girl.
B.a.i.t. - Can you tell us what we can expect for your first collection SP 12?
JK- Yes, we are very excited to launch our Spring 2012 collection this month. Its a whimsical and fun collection and we are all very proud of how well it has been received so far.
Our line will always be influenced by vintage silhouettes. I tend to gravitate from about the 40's to the 80's for inspiration and so you may find many styles reminiscent of those eras.
Spring 2012 will feature flats and sandals and pumps.The sweet things will be the details and colors that go into each style.
I have to say that I have a sickness for bows and polka dots and stripes. These elements will probably always remain in the line.
As far as color is concerned, you will see bright colors all around. A customer that came to visit us at a trade show said it was like a "candy store" very colorful!
B.a.i.t.- Can you tell us where someone can buy the line?
JK- Right now we are working on our on-line shop. You can view and buy our complete collection soon and it should launch the start of February.
We also have quite a few lovely retailers that will feature our line:
You can also find it in wonderful boutiques:
Una Mae's in Los Angeles
Blu Button in Long Beach
Lorin in Santa Monica
The list is pretty extensive, but these are just a few of our supporters.
B.a.i.t. - Lastly, who is the b.a.i.t. girl?
JK- Well, I would hope that it would be a range of women. The line is very easy and understandable for everyone. I can see a young gal in her teens right into her thirties wearing it. I can see my mom wearing a few styles. I think in fashion today, there is no age limit or style limit. Its a very exciting time I think with blogs and street style sites.
I have to say that I am most influenced by street style. I admire woman that may not be in their twenties, still looking fantastic with fabulous accessories.
I guess to sum it up, when I design the collection I design with a stylish "women" in mind. The age of the woman doesn't really come into play.
B.a.i.t.- Thank you so much for your time. We know you are not for interviews..but you did a great job!
JK- Well, Thanks....hope I wasn't too boring.
B.a.i.t.- Nope, you were great and we look forward to years and years of success!

Such a wonderful way to start off a day, to smile and skip and jump your way into a wonderful mood!

For all the AWESOME indie stores in LA / Orange County and everywhere else in the vicinity - come drop by the TRANSIT SHOW January 16-18 ( Mon-Wed)
at the CAL MART building downtown! We are showing our Spring / Summer 2012 collection.
Pss.....its super cute and darling....come on by for sure! xoxoxo
With the weather being a bit chilly still, we can see that streets are filled with people wearing "puffer" jackets. You know which those are....the ones that came in rainbow colors - the one that your mom wrapped you up in before heading out for the school bus. Well, you get the drift.
Honestly, we don't much care for the usual puffer anything- but....oh wait! How about a puffer bow on a cute little wedge?
Now your talkin Missy!! This little puffer is not for the faint of "the puff"...but it sure is a cute little number to call when your feeling you need a little somthin somthin to spruce or "puff" up your outfit.
Sorry, I couldn't help using the word "puff" as much as possible...hee hee...xoxox

How about a boyfriend shoe? Hm...are we far reaching?
Our two styles the Yonder and the Yorkie are two sure fire reasons for why dressing a little boyish can mean a lotta girly chic! We love the look of tube socks with a skirt or a lovely flouncy dress with a pair of oxfords. It brings back that 50's "rock around the clock" look no?
Truly masterpieces and works of art these windows are...we were all in awe and seriously, whoever thinks of these windows should be considered modern day masters!
So many ways to make that "come hither summer" look come to life!

After a long and antisipated journey we have opened our headquarters in Los Angeles! We had local graffiti artists come in and paint our logo onto our walls! It was so exciting to see it come to life.
People ask us how we came about our name.
B.A.I.T. is an acronym for "but another innocent tale..." our company is based on a simple tale of a idea to create a new shoe brand that is vintage inspired with updated modern details.
We are completely grass roots. We don't care to become a big household name...we just want to create cute shoes and make friends with sweet girls who will love and live our shoes. Its simple. I guess you can call it an innocent idea...an innocent tale.
One side note...we are completely gadget and web dummies. This blog is just a simple way to share our everyday musings. We probably won't be all fancy or super savvy in the way we post. Hope you will bare with us...follow us....and hopefully give us some pointers on how to make this blog thing a good place to share.
Thanks for dropping by and supporting us! We are working on our website now and running around like crazy to get our name out.
Our first Spring collection is due out this month! We will list soon some of the stores that are to carry our line.
Thanks again! xoxoxo
