Piperlime has long been one of our favorite shopping sites; it's got everything from jeans to prom dresses from some of the labels that we love most. Never in a million years did we imagine that we could love it more, but since Piperlime just announced the launch of its first-ever in-house line, we realized this site just keeps getting better and better. The debut collection will have sixty-eight pieces priced from $34 to $174, with new, trendy pieces being added each season (we've got our eye on an insanely chic leopard print coat that costs just $159). But that's not all--Piperlime has commissioned some 25 über chic stars, including model Chrissy Teigen, Poppy Delevingne, and Clare Vivier to join Olivia Palermo as style authorities and guest editors for the site. Each day you'll find their curated picks from the Piperlime collection and other labels, and you can buy the things these stars love to wear themselves. And although the Piperlime Collection will be available starting in September, the site will of course continue to feature the hottest contemporary labels, as well as introduce the coolest up-and-coming labels.
The Vivienne Westwood hat that Pharrell rocked at the 2014 Grammys is back in the news, ya'll...or maybe we should say Newseum. The now-famous topper launched a million tweets after its debut at the awards show, including a hilarious exchange between fast food chain Arby's and Pharrell himself (the restaurant insisted it was the rightful owner of the hat, which they said was its signature brown derby). "The post-Grammy’s Twitter exchange between Arby’s and Pharrell about his hat was completely unexpected and has just become this remarkable moment in pop-culture this year," said vice president of brand and corporate communications at Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc., Chris Fuller. The restaurant has since purchased the iconic Buffalo Girls-inspired headgear for $40,000 (!!!) at a charity auction, and is lending the piece to Washington D.C.'s Newseum, a museum dedicated to all things news and journalism. The museum will display the hat in a short-term exhibit, saying it represents the impact that social media has on a news story.
If you were a fan of Sarah Jessica Parker's debut shoe line, which launched last spring, you'll be happy to know that the fall collection is set to hit stores in September. The actress, who famously played a character whose shoe obsession could rival that of Marie Antoinette, has once again partnered with Nordstrom to sell the collection, which now includes handbags. Like the spring collection, all shoes and handbags feature the signature grosgrain ribbon detail, and there are a couple of styles that carried over from the spring collection, though this time in more autumn-appropriate colors like navy, burgandy, and grey. There are also several boot styles to choose from. And this time around, Parker named all the shoes after her famous friends, including costume designer Patricia Field. "Without her contributions, Carrie Bradshaw would have been incomplete," said Parker. The SJP shoes come with a price tag of $285 to $695, and handbags will sell for $220 to $495.
