I love all the collaborations that Jonathan Adler does – it brings his amazing eye for color and pattern to so many different items! His most recent partnership is with TOMS, which includes the classic slip on shoe in five fabulous prints and sunglasses – I can’t think of cuter footwear to kick off your spring collection! And at only $59 (available right now at toms.com and Nordstrom stores and online), they are a steal. Which print will you pick?

“I wanted the collaboration with Toms to reflect the spirit of my work, which is what I call style, craft and joy.” – Jonathan Adler

He outdoes himself at every show! Karl Lagerfeld created a Chanel supermarket for the Fall 2014 runway at the Grand Palais during Paris Fashion Week and I am blown away by everything from the meat-packaged bags to the iconic CC emblazoned breads. Not to mention the stunning clothes, which featured monochrome separates, cinched waists, signature tweed and those Chanel sneakers.

What do you think of the Chanel supermarket concept? Do you love the creative atmosphere or would you prefer a standard runway?

Of all the great design collabs out there, I have to admit when Taylor Swift teamed up with Keds it seemed the perfect match! While we all know Taylor as the gorgeous teen who often graces the red carpet, she still maintains her childlike spirit wherever she is. From red carpet looks that include a little sparkle and glam to a line of casual shoes perfect for everyday, Taylor’s versatility was the perfect match for this classic and time-tested brand.
Taylor Swift x Keds: Shop Her Spring Picks!
“When I was a little kid, I had a pair of white Keds I wore everywhere. It was a nostalgic feeling when they asked me to be the inspiration for the collection. It’s cool to be part of something with such a legacy.” – Taylor to Teen Vogue
With Taylor’s newest Keds collection recently released, the fun patterns and colors have me dreaming of spring! Admittedly inspired by her own wardrobe, you’ll find fun nautical prints, polka dots, lace and stripes as part of the collection. Pick up your own pair of Taylor’s Picks (they’re totally affordable!) and ring in spring in style!

Of all the new designer collections out there this season, I have to say, I am super inspired by the new Anthropologie Legend and Song collection. Born on a whim, wondering what would happen if Anthro was able to collaborate with artisans from Africa, the collection modernizes and showcases artisan crafts and textiles.
A Look at Anthropologie’s Legend and Song Collection
“We are delighted to have hosted Anthropologie in East Africa. It is exciting to know that the relationships created here will bring this uniquely African collection to their customer.” – Finn Holm-Olsen, AGOA Trade Advisor, USAID East Africa Trade Hub
By teaming up with a social enterprise known as the Bhavana World Project, and USAID, the Anthropologie production and design teams started a journey. Traveling together to Tanzania, Ethiopia, Kenya and Rwanda they connected with local co-ops, designers and artisans to form a project that would soon become a stunning and unique collection of apparel and accessories. The limited-edition collection is completely affordable with prices ranging from $58 for these stunning Threaded Silk Tassel Drop Earrings to $428 for the Shibori Leather Backpack. Which piece from the new collection is your favorite?

H&M sent a sexy and “seasonal collection of key pieces” down the runway yesterday, after renaming it to H&M Studio due the upgrade in fabrics and craftsmanship the line offers. Models strutted down the catwalk in sweater dresses, silk slips, over the knee boots, oversized coats, jumpsuits and more. Classic and feminine with a touch of masculinity seen in the shearling moto jackets, trousers and a few blazers. See my favorites from the show below!
