just as the heat of the season set in last week, i attended my very first capwell & co. event. if you aren’t familiar with the costume jewelry brand, get to gettin’ — i have no doubt it will quickly become one of your go-to affordable jewelry go-tos.

preview: the ann taylor fall/holiday 2014 collection

some days back, i gave you a peek at what to expect in ann taylor stores next season (click here for a refresher course) and now i would like to focus on the footwear and accessories you’ll be seeing. in true ann form, these will likely become a favorite of conservative dressers and females entrenched in the corporate world due to their classic design and neutral color palette. i wasn’t particularly moved by this collection, likely because i have a penchant for wearing pajamas in public, but that does not mean i didn’t find one several many things i wanted.

ann taylor’s next collection was like a ‘reverse monet’; the more close-up you were, the more gorg the individual pieces became. is that a backwards compliment? oops.

preview: the ann taylor fall/holiday 2014 collection

some days ago, circa before my computer died (no, but really, it started smoking and then went black), ann taylor revealed its upcoming fall/holiday collection. there was obviously an abundance of texture, which is typical for an autumnal line-up, and a surprising amount of neutrals for the usually-colorful retailer. though there were some nice separates in the mix, my eyes went straight to the outerwear — give me all of it.

for my first outing post-roboknee5000, i attended style coalition's 'summer kick-off,' which was co-sponsored by coppertone in celebration of its new clearlysheer and sport accuspray products. there was hair-braiding and jewelry making, but i was most thrilled to experience an oil-free skin protection product that doesn’t leave a greasy film.
this summer is set to be a fierce one so don’t forget to shield your epidermis!

the everlane summer and fall 2014 collections

yesterday, i had absolutely pleasure of attending my very first everlane preview, an opportunity i’ve looked forward to since the brand’s conception in 2011. it gave me the ability to see and touch upcoming wares of the summer and fall collections, which will be released soon — get first dibs by signing up for specific wait lists (and i highly suggest that you do). a new italian-made sandal style just launched, shorts with subtle pleats arrive on july 9, and more knitwear and handbags will release in the coming months. also exciting is the addition of footwear; loafers, specifically, in four dark neutrals. i’ve known michael, everlane’s founder, since he started the brand and cannot sing enough of his praises for developing what started as a curatorial style site into this amazing label of ethical goodness. well fucking done, michael.

it has taken me an excessively long time to reveal the rest of my preview of henri bendel's spring/summer collection and for that i have a bucket full of apologies to give you. before you do with it what you will, check out all this goodness.

if you dig a muted color palette and relaxed shapes, then you’re going to salivate over the spring collection from club monaco. more information and images to come, but follow along on instagram as i tease some images from this morning’s preview.

last week, my friends at sorrelli opened a new brick-and-mortar location in the heart of monclair, new jersey. as a loyal wearer of the family owned-and-operated jewelry brand, i felt it was my obligation to stop by. the spacious boutique displays a ton of the latest collections, but even more styles are hidden in the antique furniture.
