Nike’s Ultra Violet Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer

Ever since Pantone announced that Ultra Violet would be the color of the year, we haven’t been able to get it out of our heads. I’m seeing it in all of the stores and it gives me visions of springtime all year round. I am the biggest fan of my Nike Flyknit Racers; all my friends will tell you that it’s one of the best pairs of sneakers I’ve ever owned. Even though I don’t need another, if I could pick a second pair, it would be this one. This shade of ultra violet is so pretty and beautifully detailed. It’s subtle, but you can even catch the light blue that runs from the back of the heel to the very front giving it a very icy look. Ready to make a purchase? You can buy it here for $150 USD.

Nike Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer “Sail”

The other day Kevin asked how wearing my adidas UltraBOOSTs have been going. Embarrassed, I admitted that I haven’t even worn them out of the house yet! Truthfully, San Francisco isn’t the cleanest city and yes, I don’t want them to get dirty, but I want them to remain in perfect condition! I think a part of the reason why I haven’t worn them out yet is because I didn’t do it immediately. After Christmas, I had to leave them behind in Seattle before I could return and pack them into my luggage the second time around.

I’m aiming to wear them next week because it would be silly to blog about all these sneakers and never get any use out of them. Nike just released their remix of the Air Zoom Mariah Flyknit Racer in “Sail” and it’s the perfect shade of millennial pink if you’re looking for something a little bit more minimalist. The Flyknit that I own right now is easily one of my favorite pairs of shoes so I have no doubts that this one won’t win me over as well.

Find it here for $200CAD or $163 USD.

Instagram Unveils Activity Status

Facebook has been doing this with messenger for years. You can choose to opt in or out of texting “read receipts.” So why is this any different? The differentiating factor is that with texting and with Facebook, you choose who is in your network and who you let in. You can do this with a private Instagram account as well, but for those who are public, you run the risk of more dangerous territories. The good news is that your activity status is only shown to people you follow or engage with through DM’s so this won’t be public information to everyone that follows you. A tweet I saw yesterday said that this would be more concerning for Instagram accounts that may have stalkers though.

For those of you are uncomfortable with this feature or just want to slide a little bit more under the radar once in awhile, you can easily change this in your settings.

From your profile page, click on the settings gear and scroll down. Under settings and right above “Support” you’ll find “Show Activity Status.” Just swipe that bad boy to the left to keep yourself hidden from showing the last time you were active.

Parley x adidas Originals UltraBOOST

Kevin and I are an adidas fam now because we both gifted each other with a pair of adidas for Christmas. It’s true, I’m finally an UltraBOOST owner and I couldn’t be more excited. The only thing about them is that they’re so pretty I don’t even want to wear them. I love this new collab with Parley because of how winter themed it appears. The light blue mixed in with the black and white gives it this total icy look. Is it too soon to ask for another pair? Probably, yes, but the good news for me is that this probably won’t even be released until August 18th – just in time for me to snag my second pair.

adidas Skateboarding Presents /// Nora

If you have some extra down time over the holidays, I highly recommend watching the new short film by adidas on Nora – a young woman who has loved skateboarding since a very young age and continues to spread her love for it even into adulthood inspiring a new and younger generation of girls. Nora Vasconcellos is adidas’ first female Pro Skater and the short doc highlights her story as well as those around her who have watched her rise to the top.

Everlane’s New York Store

Last week, San Francisco’s Everlane opened up their first permanent New York store in the Nolita neighborhood. Here’s what you’ll find: puffers, denim, millennial pink, and the ultimate minimalist style that defines 2017. Earlier this year, I discovered that my office was within walking distance of the Everlane Lab (not quite as large as this store) but even still, it was a dangerous routine and habit that I kept up for weeks.

I’ve known about Everlane since it first began back in 2011, but it wasn’t until this year that I bought my first piece – a striped long sleeved tee that I wore every week for a month. The pieces are simple, but functional. Most importantly, they are affordable. They’re the basics that you need, but want to have in every color.

There’s a piece about Everlane though that separates it from being just a normal retailer. In San Francisco, many consider it to be its own startup because of how tech is immersed into it. What that means is that shopping at this Everlane location won’t be like a normal shopping experience. Here you’ll have a chance to learn how one of their tees are made via headphones in the store and have shopping made easier and more convenient with your credit cards on file from your previous purchases.

For many early adopters of Everlane, the assumption was that it would always be an online retailer. Why the change to a physical store? Founder Michael Preysman explains:

“The original idea was that we would never do stores,” he admitted. “But when you’re in the online-only world, you can’t bring people into your space and your brand the same way you can with a physical store, where it feels transparent, open, and honest. So we wanted to bring the brand to life and be part of people’s lives in a more meaningful way.”

“People do want to try things on,” Preysman said. “Having them come in and touch the product and talk to employees makes such a difference. We started out with T-shirts, which are really easy to buy online, but denim in particular is really hard to shop for [without trying it on]. So this is perfect timing.”

You can find Everlane at 28 Prince Street.

adidas UltraBOOST 4.0

I’ve had my eye on the UltraBOOSTs for some time now and in a way, so have all of you because I keep posting about them! Each new color and addition that keeps coming out, I add to my list, but just when I think I’ve made up my mind about one, another one pops up and I feel like I need to have that one too. Readers, are any of you owners and do you have any recommendations for one that is your fave? I could really use some help! The UltraBOOST 4.0 just released four new colors – 3 of which I’ve featured here – (Multi, white, and black.) How is a girl to decide, really? These are being sold for $180 USD online over at adidas.

Balmain x Victoria’s Secret Preview

I was going to say earlier this week that this is the first time I’m seeing this much media coverage leading up to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It’s true, but now that we’ve reached the end of the week, I’m realizing that it’s half positive and half negative. Katy Perry (rumored to be performing) and Gigi Hadid along with several other models will no longer be present for the show. The reasons are…interesting, but I’ll let you look all of that up yourself!

Despite those hiccups, the show will go on and I’m still looking forward to it. This year, the brand is collaborating with Balmain and this is probably the segment that I’m most excited about. Just look at these wings on Jasmine Tookes made out of safety pins. Can we just… have these forever? I have been hearing that there’s a section of the show that will be more punk than ever and with this preview, I’m confident that I’m going to love the rest of the looks.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS on November 28th. Stay tuned for a post featuring all of our favorite looks from it.
