Jane Beauty Collection Wall Nail Polish Organizer

The thing is, our bountiful collection of nail polishes, while beautiful and impressive, is starting to take over our makeup bags, our bathroom counters, our lives! But these Wall Nail Polish Organizers from Jane Beauty Collection are totally coming to the rescue. They're big enough to house all those little bottles, plus the bright colors are so pretty and fun. We're particularly taken with the gold trim, which adds a touch of luxe to the playful pink and blue hues. We've no doubt they'll look great up on our walls, even before they're filled up. 

Sephora

Beauty retail giant Sephora is joining Birchbox, Glossybox, and Julep by hopping on the subscription box service bandwagon! Play! by Sephora will allow subscribers to sample some of the industry's most luxurious and premium beauty brands (think Tom Ford, Armani, Guerlain) for the low cost of $10 a month. Each box will contain five deluxe-size samples (no chintzy little samples here) curated around a central theme, such as "essentials" one month, "dewy skin" the next month, etc. Boxes may also include bonus sample size items and Spotify playlists--because who doesn't like to rock out a little while they're testing a new mascara? Play! by Sephora will launch in limited distribution starting in September of this year, and roll out nationwide some time next year. Tell us, will you subscribe? Let us know in the comments.  

 

Zendaya

Actress/singer/all-around It girl Zendaya wants her fans to walk in her shoes, literally. The "Replay" singer has partnered with Titan Industries , the footwear company that produce shoes for L.A.M.B., Cynthia Vincent, and Charles Jourdan to name a few, to launch her own line of shoes. Daya by Zendaya will hit stores next spring (just in time for prom, perhaps?) and gives fans a chance to mirror the stylish star's flawless fashion sense (ICYMI, Zendaya actually wore a pair of pumps from her upcoming line at this year's Met Gala). Prices for the shoes, which include strappy platforms, pumps, and sneakers, will range from $125 to $175. We can't wait to see the line, and we're pretty sure Zendaya is just as excited about it. "None of these shoes are anything that I wouldn't wear — literally, I love every single one."

 

Brad Goreski

Two things: C. Wonder is making a comeback after filing for bankruptcy back in January, and Brad Goreski has a new gig. Have you figured it out the connection yet (our headline was a pretty good clue)? Style expert Brad Goreski is taking the helm as creative director of C. Wonder! The revived brand was purchased by Xcel Brands--the company that also owns the rights to Isaac Mizrahi, H Halston, and Liz Claiborne--last month, and the plan is to relaunch  exclusively on QVC with the bow tie-bedecked Goreski hosting the segments (he currently co-hosts E!'s Fashion Police). C. Wonder is known for its colorful designs and overall joyfulness, which Goreski is happy to carry on as the brand re-emerges. "I want to make people feel excited and wonderful. I want them to feel that they are ready to have the best day of their life." Look for C. Wonder on QVC in the Spring of 2016.

Philly Me In Dress

Even though there are still a few weeks before summer's end, and we should be out enjoying the beach, we can't help but think ahead to fall and, more importantly, our fall wardrobe. We've already got a few staples, but now's the perfect time to add some signature pieces like this Philly Me In Dress we spotted on ModCloth. The tartan print is so perfect for fall, plus we love how versatile it is; we can belt it and wear with heels and maybe a blazer, or rock it loose with ankle boots. We love this dress so much we're actually excited for summer to be over!

Alexander Wang

When news hit that Alexander Wang was taking the helm at Balenciaga to replace Nicolas Ghesquière a couple of years ago, the industry went sort of crazy with excitement (we mean, it's Alexander Wang!), but sadly, the designer and the French fashion house are parting ways. According to a report, Balenciaga and parent company, Kering, have decided not to renew Wang's contract, and the search for a successor is already underway (though it's still in the early stages and no names have been shortlisted yet). Wang, who has remained the creative director of his eponymous line, was brought on as creative director for Balenciaga back in 2012. Unlike his predecessor, who was seen as an innovator during his tenure at the label, Wang stuck closely to the design aesthetic for which he is best known--minimalist and monochromatic. The designer's last show for the label will be the upcoming shows at Paris Fashion Week. 

 

Miley Cyrus for Viva Glam

Miley Cyrus is teaming up with MAC Cosmetics once again! The "Wrecking Ball" singer has partnered with the makeup label on her second Viva Glam lip color--an eye-catching, unapologetically bold red. Cyrus totally looks the part of the classic bombshell in the campaign image, wearing the new lip color and a platinum blonde wig. As per usual, the Viva Glam edition will include both a lipstick and a Lipglass, and all proceeds will benefit children, women, and men living with or affected by HIV and AIDS. Look for the new Viva Glam lipstick online starting September 8, 2015. We've already started putting together looks to go with the new color!

 

Modcloth

Multibrand online retailer ModCloth is debuting an in-house line, with new collections launching every month. The line is sort of a collaborative effort between ModCloth's design team and loyal shoppers of the site; ModCloth co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Susan Koger and her design team looked to customer reviews and feedback to help create collections that include the most important design elements to the company's customer base. And since fit is always one of the chief concerns about online shopping, the new line will include sizes ranging from XS to 4X. "Each piece has a reason for existing and each piece is going to, I hope, become a staple and a favorite in our customer’s wardrobe," said Kroger. We've checked out the ModCloth label, available online now, and we've already picked out a few favorites.

Everlane Cotton Sweater

We'll be the first to admit that we don't exactly handle the heat too well; an overconsumption of iced coffees coupled with a bit of whining is typically how we deal with temperatures that hit the 90s and above. Thankfully, we find a bit of reprieve in the evenings when a cool ocean breeze blows all of our summertime woes away. And just in case that cool ocean breeze gets a little too chilly, we've got this Cotton Sweater from Everlane. It's relaxed and easy (so it can slip right over whatever we've got on), with just the slightest high-low hem. And come fall, it'll transition beautifully into our cool weather wardrobe. 

Kate Spade

We absolutely adore the Kate Spade label, so hearing about an expansion makes us very, very happy. Kate Spade & Co. announced last week that several new lines are being added to the lineup, including athleisure, sleepwear (yay!), kitchen accessories, and various other licensing deals. "Interesting women leading interesting lives are at the core of our brand. We aim to provide our customer with the products she loves for all aspects of her interesting life. Our best-in-class licensing partners allow us to thoughtfully expand our lifestyle offerings — from athleisure to sleepwear, cookware to furniture — in a way that is uniquely Kate Spade New York," Mary Beech, the brand's executive VP and chief marketing officer said in a statement. The expansion certainly comes as a surprise after the brand's lower-priced Kate Spade Saturday line folded earlier this year. Expect to see the new Kate Spade lines launching as early as this fall and in Spring 2016. 

 

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has really made a name for herself in the fashion set, and is a photo favorite when it comes to street style, so it was just a matter of time before she jumped into the fashion game as a designer. The "Bad Blood" singer inked a deal with Chinese e-tailer JD.com, according to a report from CNN Money. The clothing line will apparently include dresses, sweatshirts, and tops, and will be sold in JD.com's "U.S. Mall," alongside other "authentic American products." The line will debut later this summer, when Swift takes her 1989 tour to Shanghai.

 

Converse Chuck Taylor
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is about as iconic as Cinderella's glass shoe and Dorothy's ruby red slipper; seriously, even people who are sneaker heads are familiar with the simple design of this Converse tennis shoe. Now, for the first time in almost a hundred years the shoe is getting a redesign. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II looks like the original, but now contains the innovative Nike Lunarlon technology, so they're more comfortable and conducive for the girl or guy on the go. "The Chuck Taylor All Star is one of the most legendary and iconic sneakers of all time," said Converse President and CEO Jim Calhoun. "The launch of Chuck II is a ground-breaking moment for Converse as we continue to move the brand forward through creativity and innovation, ushering in not just a new sneaker, but a completely new way of thinking."

Bisou Crossbody clutch

Most of the time, we just want to throw our stuff in a bag and run out the door, so we need a bag that's not too bulky or heavy, and in fact, the smaller the better (so we're not tempted to bring along a bunch of unnecessary lip glosses or extra pairs of sunglasses). This Bisou Crossbody Clutch is beyond perfect. Besides being completely adorable (those little kisses are just too cute), it's one of the most practical bags in our collection because it's just big enough for the essentials, and the gold-tone crossbody strap ensures that we don't have to fuss with it at all, keeping our hands free for other things, like trying on new lipgloss.
