Throwback Thursday: Isabel Marant

With Isabel Marant x H&M launching today (and we all know how I feel about designer collaborations) I thought we should look at the real reason why everyone loves the French designer. Because after all, Isabel Marant was happening way before the Dicker boot and sneaker wedges. For reals.

The Big Discussion: Designer Collaborations

My feelings towards designer collaborations (re: Isabel Marant x H&M, 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target, etc) have been very mixed. There’s been plenty of articles written either for or against them but after reading a certain story on Fashionista.com yesterday it inspired me to think of this debate in a whole new way. This is a big topic in the fashion industry right now so I’d love for you to weigh in.

Blogger Problems

When you’re a blogger, no matter how big or small, you’re putting yourself out there. When you put yourself out there, you have to be prepared to be made fun of…at least a little.

Team Player

Varsity jackets have been making somewhat of a revival the last few years. This is something I personally enjoy because it makes me a little nostalgic. One, because I remember my parents having them (similar to this but with black sleeves) and two, sports weren’t really my thing so I never actually got to own a real varsity jacket. Instead, I got to wear a super uncomfortable cheerleading uniform with orthopedic-looking gym shoes…and those, my friends, were great times.

So getting back on track…
