big news, you guys: last week, j.crew announced plans to open a space in williamsburg (all the real hipsters groaned against capitalism and the fake hipsters cheered for their secret fave brand) but adding to that is the debut of a collab with catbird, one of the most popular boutiques in the area. though many of the designs have been sold at catbird for some time, there is one exclusive item a $242, 14k gold version of the boutique’s signature "lovecat" ring. get to pre-orderin’ your favorites now before they sell out!

vans’ third partnership with liberty arts fabrics was clearly a charm. using prints developed by liberty, “classic vans styles get an ‘arts-and-crafts movement’ remake,” declared fashionista. featured in this collection are the sk8 his in a pink floralera low tops in a golden paisley design, and old skools in a blue vine print.

for its very first collaboration, everlane teamed up with illustrator (and former model for the site!) langley fox on a tank top collection. priced slightly above the retailer’s usual at $28 [for a muscle tank] and $24 [for a drape tank], they are still ridiculously attainable and feature a heavier, 100% cotton slub material. having experienced these shirts in-person at everlane’s latest preview, i can attest to their sturdiness.

admittedly, i have no idea what has taken me so long to highlight nicolette’s upcoming collaboration with modcloth. if you aren’t aware, blogger nicolette mason has teamed up with retro-inspired retailer modcloth on a collection for the ages.

the 11-piece line-up launches october 6 and will be available in nearly every size known to woman, from xs to 4x, something that my good friend should be pretty darn pleased about since most collabs are for either straight or plus-sized figures. her stance on the subject? “my platform has never been just about advocating for plus sizes, it’s been about saying that everyone, regardless of race or economic status or body type or body shape or gender expression, should be empowered to wear great clothing,” she told fashionista. she proved her point by posing alongside modcloth founder susan gregg-koger in the collection’s lookbook.

i will preface this post by saying that i’m a fan of avaiators; heck, i’m a fan of anything unisex because equality, you know? anyway, with that in mind, emily weiss and nick axelrod of now-famed beauty blog into the gloss have joined forces with warby parker on a two-style eyewear collection. spoiler alert: both styles are aviators. yes, they are priced slightly above warby’s signature $95, but these shades are extremely sexy and sure to look good on men and women alike, as modeled by the blog’s founders.

they’re here! the collaboration between baublebar and frends that landed on my desk last week is now available for purchase, a lovely combination of bejeweled headphones and blingy earrings. though i would not recommend wearing them together as headphones can put a bit of pressure on your ears, this was a smart and thoughtful partnership and will surely make all of your earbud-owning friends jeal.

for worker bees like myself, today is the equivalent of friday if you have tomorrow off in celebration of the united states’ independence day (holler at that), so i’m already in ‘weekend mode.’ apologies for the nonsense i plan to post for most of the day.

to kick it off, vans collaborated with peanuts to create a multi-style collection designed for adults ($60-70) and children ($40) featuring an allover snoopy print. bark on.

my attempt at achieving normcore personal style is now complete. (see also)

as a disclosure, i received the sandals gratis but with no editorial requirements.

it is an absolute pleasure to spread the news of my friend grace’s collection with baublebar. obviously, this makes sense because who knows the brand better than its director of social media but grace is also extremely knowledgeable in the world of accessories and fashion as the blogger behind stripes & sequins. and this is not her first partnership with a brand; her matt bernson footwear collection continues to be a top seller and rumor has it there is a brahmin collaboration in her future. get it, girl.
