Can you say obsessed? Because that is what we are with this Crochet Top from Zara. Seriously--obsessed! It's the perfect mix of bohemian and glamorous, and we can't imagine there's any place or any event that it wouldn't work for. It goes with nearly everything in our closet, from jeans to midi skirts, and perhaps the best part of all, it's on sale! Obsessed!
Jessica Simpson has gone from teen pop sensation to reality TV star/actress to fashion mogul, with an eponymous line that nets about $1 billion and includes over 30 product categories (we don't know anyone who doesn't love a Jessica Simpson shoe)! And her fashion empire is continuing to grow and will now include real estate. Fans of Simpson's clothing, shoes, accessories, and fragrances will have one more way to shop their favorite label when the star opens up her own boutiques. The Jessica Simpson label is currently sold in mainstream department stores like Macy's, Lord & Taylor, and Dillard's. Boutiques could potentially open within the next year in major cities Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York, and eventually in Simpson's home state of Texas. No word yet on where exactly Simpson will set up shop, or who she'll hire to design the spaces, but we'll definitely be keeping our eyes open for more details.
MAC Cosmetics is trying something new, and actually, it's kind of genius. The cosmetics brand is opening up a makeup salon in New York (we're hoping other cities will follow), and it's not to be confused with the MAC makeup counter or boutique in your favorite mall. The salon will be similar to DryBar or DreamBar, except instead of blowouts and quick hairstyles, customers can receive a bold lip, smoky eyes, or a quick contouring applied by a MAC makeup artist. In addition to the quick and easy services, there will be makeup lessons, services for special events (think weddings, prom, and the like), and beauty parties. But unlike the MAC counter, there's no pressure to buy any of the products the makeup artist uses on your face; just pay for your services and go. How easy is that?
Dancer and budding It girl Maddie Ziegler was named a brand ambassador for dancewear label Capezio back in May, and for her first campaign she debuted the brand's collaboration with Betsey Johnson, a former dancer herself. The capsule collection includes nylon spandex leggings, briefs, camis, leotards, graphic tops, and tutus in lace, floral, and animal print, with prices ranging from $20 to $120. And, as expected of anything Betsey Johnson touches, the collection is totally fun and geared toward serious young dancers who want to add a little playfulness to their dance attire. You can shop the entire collection now.

Finding an eyeshadow palette with gorgeous colors that are natural-looking and flattering is always a great thing, but when the eyeshadows are actually good for the delicate skin on your eyelids, it's like, next level! This Long Weekend Eyeshadow Palette from Julep has eleven universally flattering shadows that are blendable and beautiful, but also beneficial thanks to ingredients that moisturize, soothe, repair, and protect skin. And it certainly doesn't hurt that every one of these colors looks perfect with a little white dress.
Project Runway is debuting a new show, and this one may just be even more impressive and entertaining than the original because the contestants are considerably younger than their PR counterparts. That's right, Project Runway Junior is scheduled to air this fall, and the designers will range in age from 14 to 17! Tim Gunn will, thankfully, appear on the show as co-host (because what would we do without his "make it works?"), with model Hannah Davis taking on hosting duties in Heidi Klum's place. Judging the young fashion ingenues will be Project Runway alum and winner Christian Siriano and Cosmopolitan Executive Fashion Editor Aya Kanai. No date has been confirmed for the Project Runway Junior premiere, but stay tuned--we're sure the Lifetime network will be making the announcement soon.
Net-a-Porter is one of the world's premiere go-to sites for luxury apparel and accessories, and Tom Ford is without a doubt one of the foremost luxury brands, so a partnership between the two--an exclusive partnership--is a big deal. The e-commerce site will be the first and only online retailer to sell his men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections. The designer's own e-commerce site, tomford.com, only offers men's and women's accessories and beauty, while his RTW collections can only be found in 110 Tom Ford boutiques and brick-and-mortar department stores around the world. "Net-a-porter is extremely strong in selling designer merchandise online and obviously Tom Ford ready-to-wear online, bags and shoes is a massive draw for our customer,” said Net-a-porter’s VP of global buying, Sarah Rutson. "We’ve got a proven track record of selling at this level, especially brands that either have very limited e-commerce themselves or no e-commerce." The Tom Ford ready-to-wear collections will launch next month on Net-a-porter.com and on MrPorter.com in September.
We're always among the first to announce when whatever model-of-the-moment or major Hollywood actress lands a big campaign, but this is the first time that we've ever written about a dog starring in a fashion ad. That adorable mug you see in the picture above is none other than singer Lady Gaga's French bulldog, Asia Kinney, and she is the new face of Coach. The lifestyle brand featured the pup in its latest ad, the first of a series that will star yet-to-be-revealed dogs modeling Coach's newest products. The series is being shot by Steven Meisel. But the series isn't just about the ridiculously cute photos of celebrity dogs, it will also introduce Coach Pups, a social campaign that will include various online activities for dog lovers, Instagram meetups, and other events. In addition, Coach will make donations to different charities on behalf of the dogs in the campaign. For Miss Asia Kinney, that was Chicago French Bulldog Rescue. We're just smitten with this idea and can't wait to see more sweet little doggies in fabulous Coach garb.
