Altuzarra for Target

We won't be able to get them until Sunday, but these Altuzarra for Target Ankle Boots are absolutely worth the wait. The whole collection is kind of fabulous actually, and we're hoping to score several pieces. But the boots--oh! the boots!--they top our list. From the faux croc embossed heel to the wraparound ankle strap, these beauties meet every last one of our standards for of-the-moment coolness. It's no wonder countless other bloggers and fashion editors have given these boots props as the best pair for fall under $100!

Free People Instagram campaign

Leave it to Free People to do something totally cool and unexpected, like nixing the supermodel/natural lighting/scenic location combo that has always worked so well for their catalogs, and opting instead to hire a few models, bloggers, and other well-known faces to wear Free People clothing and post "selfies" to Instagram. The shoot (yes, there are professional photographers involved as well) took place over fourteen days, in four cities--New York, Los Angelel, Paris, and London, all fashion capitals, natch. And besides being seen on Instagram, you can see the images featured in the print catalog. 

 

Neiman Marcus

This may seem hard to believe (okay, it's actually just plain crazy), but Neiman Marcus, the Dallas-based retailer that hawks the biggest names in fashion, does not have a brick and mortar store in New York city, one of the world's fashion capitals. That will all change in the next few years, though, because after 107 years, the Dallas-based retailer is finally setting up shop in the Big Apple. And what a shop it will be! The space will be a ginormous 250,000 square feet and will occupy floors five through seven of the Far West Side's Hudson Yards. "We needed to make sure that if we were taking this big, big step of coming to Manhattan, that we had a store that was going to be very impressive," said Karen Katz, chief executive of Neiman Marcus Group. Um, yeah, we're thinking this store will be quite impressive. 

 

Victoria Beckham

Lest you be confused by the headline, Victoria Beckham did not wear flats to New York Fashion Week (can you just imagine?!). The former Spice Girl, who is known for teetering about town in about a thousand inches of heel, unveiled her Spring 2015 collection at Fashion Week and debuted her eponymous footwear line--a mix of platforms and flats, with not a stiletto in sight. Beckham is unsure at this time if she plans to produce the shoes for retail, saying that she created them to "complete and strengthen the silhouette" she showed on the runway. Keep your fingers and toes crossed!

Uniqlo ultra light down printed vest

Okay, so it's not quite cold enough for outerwear yet, and it probably won't be for awhile (in Los Angeles anyway), but that's not stopping us from getting this Ultra Light Down  Printed Vest from Uniqlo. It'll be our go-to when things finally cool down because it's warm enough to wear layered over our favorite long-sleeved tees and chambray shirts, as well as an inner layer underneath a coat (see how thin it is?). Plus, we're all about a good tartan print in the fall! 

Rebecca Minkoff notification bracelet

When it comes to wearable tech, we have, admittedly, turned our noses up at the thought (we simply couldn't get past the idea that it would be clunky, awkward, and clashing). But then we started seeing different designers put their spin on the trend and suddenly we realized that there are some pieces that deserve a second look. Most recently, Rebecca Minkoff, one of our favorite designers, has come on board with a wearable tech collection. Minkoff is starting with two bracelets--one with a lightning phone charger and another that will send an alert when something happens on the wearers phone (think Facebook alerts, low battery, new emails, ect.). The bracelets will retail for $60 for the charger bracelet and $120 for the notification braceslet, and in true Rebecca Minkoff form both will come in various colors,which we can't wait to see. 

 

Barbie

Fashion month is upon us, which means our Instagram feed will soon be flooded with images from models, fashion bloggers, and street style photogs. But this year, there's only one Instagram account that's on our radar: Barbie's. Yes, Barbie, as in the Mattel doll with the ridiculous measurements and covet-worthy style. No stranger to Fashion Week--she's collabed with heavy hitters like Karl Lagerfeld, Vera Wang, and Versace, held a runway show in the Big Apple to celebrate her 50th anniversary, and even co-hosted a party with the CFDA--Barbie will be taking Fashion Month by storm, hitting all four cities (New York, London, Milan, and Paris) and documenting her travels along the way. Follow her @BarbieStyle to see snaps of her outfits and some of her favorite places in each city, as well as meetings with industry insiders.
