A trend that I am loving with retail stores is when they take their goods out on the road with them. Urban Outfitters had their pop-up shop. Warby Parker is spending weeks in different cities interacting with the locals and meeting their fans. Now, BHLDN is introducing their traveling trunk show to celebrate the third location of their newest store in California. They will hit up 6 Anthropologie stores on their travels (including Seattle!) and bringing with them their gowns for brides-to-be. BHLDN gowns are gorgeous, classic, and vintage, but a girl’s wedding day is going to be one of the most important days of her life so selecting one without trying it on can be a little nerve-wracking.
Since Phillip Lim has been showing his collections on Style.com, I have been a fan. His pieces are effortless, classic, feminine and everything that I look for as an aging 20-something. Of course, I liked it before then too, but it’s much more applicable now. It was announced this week that Phillip Lim would be next in line to collaborate with Target and it looks like we’ll have the collection in stores beginning September! The collection will include pieces for both men and women and will feature apparel, shoes, bags, and travel accessories.
“Since an early age, I’ve been intrigued by the idea of design evolution,” said Phillip Lim in a release. “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible.”

Last night, I stopped by the Anthropologie event in Seattle to celebrate their new Petites collection along with special guest Joy Cho of one of my favorite blogs – Oh Joy! I’ve been shopping at Anthropologie since I was 15 years old so yes, I was a little bit of an old soul, but that’s okay – I just look at it as getting a head start on enhancing my wardrobe. After taking a sneak peak at the collection and sipping on sweet strawberry drinks, I was hooked. Not to mention – I got to meet Joy, herself! Here are some of my favorite picks from the collection.
It’s the biggest night in fashion of the year and for the past four years, we have been covering the annual Met Gala. This year’s theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture and the celebrities did it well. Here – Dakota Fanning looks phenomenal in Rodarte.

Usually I find even mannequins to be a little bit creepy, but this piece by John Breed is whimsically entrancing. I’m not sure if it’s the leg and shoes combination or the pretty pastels – maybe it is both! The piece was designed as a collaboration with German shoe salon Breuninger and was created using 145 multicolored shoes and legs.
The beautiful Keira Knightley got married over the weekend to her Klaxons’ rock star James Righton and she wore a darling blush toned knee-length strapless Chanel dress with extra tulle! And to top it off? None other than a Chanel bouclé jacket, of course. Also let’s not forget to note the floral wreath sitting atop her head. This is such a great look for the modern day bride and though we maybe never expected it from her, it works! Girl can do whatever she wants.
Designer Vivienne Westwood is bringing her creativity to the new uniforms that the Virgin Atlantic crew will be donning. Above is just a snippet of what we may find – the airline’s signature red, but the designer’s famous cut and folds. So how did this partnership come to be? Apparently Vivienne and Westwood and Richard Branson are old pals. Sort of. Back when Branson was well into the music scene, he signed Malcolm McLaren’s (Vivienne’s old flame) band, The Sex Pistols, to his record label. The collection will debut on the runway this coming July.
