The eyewear brand is tapping into a new market after having so much success since their launch in 2010. For the first time ever, they are unveiling a collection of glasses just for kids. Frames will start at just $95.
“Over the years, we’ve heard from customers on the hunt for smaller — but just as good-looking — options for their kids,” said Warby Parker’s Co-CEO and Co-Founder Dave Gilboa, in a press statement. And starting Tuesday, fans of the brand will be able to purchase mini specs for their tot-sized offspring at any one of its eight New York City stores during a 12-week pilot run.
These playground-friendly glasses are scaled-down versions of longtime favorite frames — Wilkie, Lyle, Louise, Percey, Chamberlain and Daisy — and will be available in an assortment of equally treasured hues — Peony, Jet Black, Eastern Bluebird Fade, Oxford Blue Crystal, Crystal, Oak Barrel and Tea Rose Fade. The smaller-shaped glasses come in two sizes: A junior size for kids aged eight and up and a junior-junior size for littler ones, aged four (peak adorableness) to seven.
Growing up, I still remember my first pair of frames and as hard as I tried to find the most stylish pair, I never won. Functional sure, fashion forward? Not so much. I’ve been a fan of Warby Parker frames since they began so it’s wonderful to hear that now kids can get in on the action.

Absolutely no one is surprised that Marchesa will not be showing at New York Fashion Week next month. With the scandal directly tied to Harvey Weinstein, his wife Georgina Chapman and one half of Marchesa has been noticeably quiet in recent months. She had announced that she would be divorcing Harvey, but many wondered “is that enough?” One one side of the argument, you’re wondering what more she could do after seeking a divorce. However, on the other hand, you have to ask yourself if Georgina really was unaware of everything that went on. It’s not just the sexual assault that she may or may not have known about, but the fact that reports came out that Harvey threatened female celebrities and urged them to wear designs on the red carpet.
Believe me, there’s more that I want to know about this story, but at the same time, I’m tired. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back and now it’s too much. It almost doesn’t help me to know more of the details and to get the questions answered. As many of you know, I adored Marchesa. Since we’ve been posting runway collections to Yow Yow! I’ve featured Marchesa almost every season. I’ve wondered what it might be like to wear one of their gowns for an event or a wedding – anything, and this whole ordeal has been really upsetting, but more upsetting for everyone that had to become a victim of Harvey’s. It’s unclear how Marchesa can even make a comeback after something like this; maybe it’s best if they didn’t.

Up until this past weekend, I haven’t ever thought about replenishing my swimsuit collection – at least not in the last few years. But now, I’m like which brand do I want to give all of my money to?! The reason why this thought has floated by me recently is because I’m headed to Palm Springs next month and I’ve sort of outgrown all of my older ones. There are so many great brands and lots of new and unique styles to choose from that it’s difficult to make a decision. Also, have swimsuits always been this expensive?! This was news to me.
I just purchased two new ones a couple of days ago, but I’m really impressed by this low-priced line that J. Crew just put out and now I’m reconsidering if I need a third swimsuit. Tops and bottoms will start around $22.50 while one-piece swimsuits will be in the $50 range (half of what I paid the other day for mine) Here are a few of my favorites:
Perfect millennial pink!

I know I’ve been showering this brand with praise for the last year, but it’s not for no reason! During my late teenage years and into my 20’s, Abercrombie was not a brand on my radar. In fact, I was convinced that I had grown out of them completely. Their brand name had been tarnished with a reputation for ginormous logos on their apparel, dimly lit stores, and heavily scented perfumes and cologne. While they were once a hot commodity between the kids, they suddenly became a brand that no one really wanted.
But everyone deserves a second chance right? I popped in sometime last year during a sale and was pleasantly surprised that all the things I once loathed about them had been changed. I even made a purchase. So there’s nothing that I love more than a brand taking feedback and turning it into something. Change. Another change that they’ve made is announcing a new their new gender neutral collection entitled “Everybody Collection” for their kids line.
The line made its debut this past Wednesday and includes trendy pieces like bomber jackets, camouflage prints, and hoodies for either gender. The decision to create this collection actually came from customer feedback that they had received.
“Our Everybody Collection is one assortment, in one size run, that covers the trends we are seeing in both color and style,” said Stacia Andersen, Brand President of A&F and Abercrombie Kids in a statement. “We are excited to offer these additional options and are looking forward to building on this initial collection for summer and the back-to-school seasons.”
One of the reasons why this is so important now and why I’m sharing this today is because of the rise in transgender children coming forward. It’s crucial and impactful for brands like Abercrombie to remind everyone that fashion is inclusive and for everyone.

One of my favorite trends to look back on is the Ugg boot. Second place? The Juicy Couture sweatsuits. These staples were iconic and they weren’t just trends; they were staples. Everyone you knew had one and if you didn’t, you were on the outs. What I love about the Ugg is that while they weren’t always the most visually pleasing, they were comfy as hell. Before I owned actual Uggs, I had knockoffs and when I purchased the real ones from Nordstrom, I was ecstatic. In fact, they’re staring at me right now from my living room. They’re the most basic of basics, but I can’t knock the Ugg brand for trying something different.
Partnering with French label Y/Project, they created a thigh-high Ugg boot that debuted at Men’s fashion week in Paris this past Wednesday. So what do we think? Still ultra cozy? Would you wear it? Which pair is your favorite and who’s the ideal person that can pull this off?
