it started with a pop-up, then grew to include an in-office retail space, and now baublebar has extended to sell within anthropologie and nordstrom stores. this is major for a brand that started on e-commerce! the only worry i have as a customer is that moving to brick-and-mortar specialty stores eliminates its customer service-minded “swat" team, a huge part of baublebar that keeps me coming back. nevertheless, nordstrom is stellar in that respect and will help spread the gospel of colorful, fun costume jewelry even further.

two of england’s finest, kate moss and topshop, are back together again to design some wares. as you can see by the lookbook images above, moss was all “‘gone with the wind’ fabulous” levels of psyched about it. expect the collection to land in topshop stores, on topshop.com, as well as in nordstrom, on nordstrom.com, and on net-a-porter.com beginning on april 30th.

katie ermilio collab’d with steven alan and since the results are not too far off from what the fella in the team would normally churn out, it’s super on-brand. and while we are on topic, imma need to get this jacket. (does anyone have $650 lying around? bueller?)

thanks to ann taylor, this beautiful clutch recently came into my possession in celebration of the retailer’s newest collection of little black dresses, designed by the very lovely kate hudson. yes, that kate hudson. hitting stores this month, the actress collaborated with creative director lisa axelson to create a line-up of classic frocks you’re definitely going to want because a wardrobe can never have too much black.

snaps to my friend gabi on her most recent project, a midkini by swimsuits for all, which was designed to fit sizes 8 to 24 (and only costs $78!). the swimsuit launch is a continuation of last year’s release, which made perfect sense after the near-uproar that occurred after she wore  what was soon dubbed “the fatkini" on a trip to vegas.

uniqlo has sponsored moma entrance fees on friday nights for a while now in addition to churning out small batches of limited edition t-shirt collections illustrating famous works of art, but the japanese retailer decided to take the latter a step — nay, a leap — further with a massive collaboration. called ‘sprz ny,’ the line highlights 200 well-known prints from the likes of haring, warhol, basquiat, pollock, and more. the tees are available now and range in price from $5.90 to $49.90.

wearable art for less than $50? i am so down with that.

the shapes are frumpy as all get out, but i’m intrigued by this collaboration between american apparel and nathalie du pasquier. according to refinery29, du pasquier is a founding member of the memphis design collection, an establishment that consists of talented artists and furniture and product makers. clearly, her background gives her mucho experience in the way of design, so i have hopes that this partnership will give way to more variety for the retailer in the future.

erin of calivintage posted an in-depth photographic review of the latest collection from samantha pleet, which included the designer’s designs for wolverine 1000 mile. known for its vintage-inspired styles, pleet fits right into the heritage footwear brand’s aesthetic.

as an owner of a pair of 1000 mile lace-ups, i can attest to their quality and wearability (they legit go with everything). i look forward to putting them back on, post-surg.

you know i had to pull myself out from under my down quilt-covered rock to show you the latest collection from del toro, which was also a collaboration. the styles were very obviously inspired by emoji icons and feature del toro’s signature smoking slippers intertwined with complementary clutches from edie parker. the result is a hilarious line-up that has me left sobbing into my empty wallet wondering why i don’t have $400 to cough up for a pair. we all footwear that says we’re “the shit,” don’t we? we do.

last night, i toasted to grace atwood's recent collab with footwear designer matt bernson, a line that couldn’t be more on-brand for her (she runs a blog called stripes & sequins, after all). bernson was also in attendance to celebrate the collection and note that it has already been flying off the shelves; this would be exciting news for any blogger as we struggle to prove our worth in the fashion and retail industries. thus: congratulations!

disclosure: i received the flats above as a gift from my friend grace (thank you!)
