Embroidered Trim Ankle Socks

The plan is to wear more socks this fall, and not just gym socks with sneakers when we go for a run, but actually really cute socks that we can pair with sweet little frocks and T-strap Mary Janes or D'Orsay pumps; the kind of socks that add a dose of girlishness to crisp plaid shorts and skirts. And if they happen to have a lacy ruffle, then all the better. These Embroidered Trim Ankle Socks from Topshop totally fit the bill. 

Betsey Johnson

Betsey Johnson's Spring 2016 runway show at New York Fashion Week last Friday was a celebration, as well as a goodbye of sorts--it marked the 50th anniversary of her eponymous label and the last show of it's kind. "This is the big bang. This is the last of this," the 73-year old designer said. "I can't do this again." Her big bang included over 50 outfits presented to an audience of more than 1,000. The show was divided into groups, each representing a decade in the business and named after Johnson's favorite haunts, including Palladium, Mud Club, Electric Circus, and her childhood dance studio, Ann K. Pimm Presents. The designer, who received the CFDA Lifetime Achievement Award in June, has plans to live in Malibu and enjoy her family. Congratulations to Betsey Johnson on her incredible run!

Kate spade new york

Kate Spade New York is launching a new label of casual essentials called Broome Street, a nod to the brand's first New York store in Soho. According to Deborah Lloyd, president and chief creative officer of Kate Spade New York, the line will feature 50 pieces in the launch, including woven shirts, cotton T-shirts, denim, casual cotton dresses and skirts,  and chunky sweaters, with prices ranging from $65 to $898. "This [Broome Street] line is a more casual expression of everything we do, and is an entry into the brand," said Lloyd. "[It] is designed to effortlessly sit and work with the Kate Spade New York line." The line will incorporate aesthetics of Kate Spade Saturday, the brand's lower-priced line that folded earlier this year. We can't wait to see the Broome Street offerings and hope it will be more successful than Saturday.

Apple x Hermes

Fans of the Apple Watch will soon have a more luxurious option for their favorite tech accessory because the brand has just announced a partnership with French fashion and accessories manufacturer Hermès on an Apple Watch collection. The new watches will feature luxe leather bands and the iconic Hermès logo on the center of the screen. "Apple and Hermès make very different products, but they reflect the deep appreciation of quality design,” Apple’s chief design officer Jonathan Ive said in the press release. “Both companies are motivated by a sincere pursuit of excellence and the desire to create something that is not compromised. Apple Watch Hermès is a true testament to that belief." The Apple Watch Hermès starts at $1,100 for the 38 mm stainless steel case with the Single Tour, $1,150 for the 42 mm stainless steel case with the Single Tour, $1,250 for the 38 mm stainless steel case with the Double Tour, and $1,500 for the 42 mm stainless steel case with the Cuff--a far cry from the $95,000 you could pay for a Birkin handbag! Starting October 5 the collection will be available in select Apple and Hermès stores, as well as some specialty and department stores. 

Ecote Joni Boho Maxi Dress

We are deeply digging all the '70s inspired looks this season, and we want in on this style immediately. From the tie-topped V-neck to the tiered maxi skirt, this Ecote Joni Boho Maxi Dress is totally on trend; even the print looks like it's from a different era! The real beauty of this frock is that we can just as easily rock it with clogs and a crossbody bag for day as we can with heels and fabulous gold jewelry for night. This is '70s inspiration done right!


Online fashion retailer has plans to open up its first brick and mortar store, and basically make all our dreams come true. The company brought in Mathew Kaness, the former chief strategy officer of Urban Outfitters, to be CEO earlier this year and he's got big plans, including but not limited to brick and mortar locations. "We’ll have stores in a lot of locations nationally, not just regionally," he stated. (Woohoo!) The plans to expand to physical stores follows the success of an L.A. pop-up shop and a fit shop in San Francisco, which Kaness said, "emboldened us to go faster with the [brick-and-mortar] experimentation and finalizing our plan for that." No word yet on when exactly the store will open, or even which city, but we've got our fingers crossed for Los Angeles.

Georgia May Jagger x Mulberry

Mulberry has just launched a new collection, created with the help of Georgia May Jagger. The 23-year old model and face of Mulberry worked with the luxury label's design team to conceptualize her dream leather jacket, which features a long-line body, roomy arms (perfect for layering) and dramatic, jewel-toned linings. The rocker-chic collection also includes silk scarves and a small chain-strap pouch, all inspired by the muse's repertoire of vintage leather jackets. Jagger's Mulberry jacket will sell for $1,590, the pouch for $630. Mulberry is known for collabing with 'It' girls, including model and actress Cara Delevigne, with whom they created a line of 3-in-1 handbags inspired by her tattoos last year, and Alexa Chung and Lana Del Rey, both of whom have best-selling handbags named after them.
