Guess what was released today! J. Crew gave us an early preview of their September Style Guide on Pinterest and now I am officially excited for fall. If this is any indication, most of us will be wearing black and white next season, with classic prints mixed with different floral or animal print patterns. The pink is also to die for and the perfect feminine compliment to the stark color combinations. Check out my five favorite looks below – everything is officially available for purchase on Wednesday! xo

I am freaking out over the amazing selection of handbags for fall! I woke up this morning to see that photos of the entire Phillip Lim for Target collection have been released and the handbags and totes for fall are a must have. If you follow fashion then you’ll recognize the gorgeous 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli trapeze bag below (now available on net-a-porter for $895)… keep scrolling and you’ll see it’s nearly identical twin for his Target collection!
Must Have Handbags for Fall: Phillip Lim for Target
Black, navy and mustard are key colors in the Phillip Lim for Target line and I love that the color palette carried over into the accessories. I am definitely adding this handbag for fall to my closet when it hits stores September 15th! What about YOU?

Isn’t it a refreshing boost when you try on clothes in a dressing room and you look thinner than ever in the mirror – it’s like a few pounds just magically disappear. Skinny mirrors are certainly a bonus for stores trying to make a sale, especially when it comes to swim suits and jeans! But can you imagine having a “skinny mirror” at home?
The Skinny Mirror: A Must-Have?
“Living in such an image-conscious culture, we are always struggling to live up to ideals, whether it be conscious or subconscious. The Skinny Mirror gives you extra confidence to take on the world.”
Well, a new mirror known as The Skinny Mirror is on the market and available for purchase. Said to offer a “slightly taller and slimmer reflection of you,” the Skinny Mirror claims to “boost confidence and improve self-image.” Retailing for around $175 and up, you also have the option for a customized and limited edition styles (it’s even eco-friendly!).
What do you think… is relying on a mirror that gives you a distorted view a healthy way to boost your self-confidence? Would you buy a Skinny Mirror?

Twitter was aflutter with some fairly big news from Miley Cyrus this week! She recently tweeted, “Shhhh.. secret secret. BIG news coming to a “Protect The Skin You’re In” tee near you next week. #StayTuned #marcfam”
After she teased the world with this tweet, the news was clear: Miley had teamed up with Marc Jacobs as part of his “Protect the Skin You’re In” campaign! The singer is showing more than just a little skin for the collaboration and has gone completely nude for the shirt.
Selling for $35 at both Marc by Marc shops and Marc Jacobs boutiques, proceeds from the campaign go to NYU Langone Medical Center and NYU Cancer Institute.
What do you think of this barely-there campaign? Would you sport a t-shirt with a nude Miley Cyrus for charity?
