Converse’s “Triple Black”

We’ve got the only shoes you need for the rest of the year. Why buy one pair when you can have two? Converse’s “Triple Black” Chuck Taylor Pack is being released tomorrow and while this is very exciting news… a part of me is wondering why there isn’t a 3rd style getting involved as part of the “triple!” The two styles come in both ’70 Hi and Ox and it is completely covered in a perfect matte black.

The Ox and Hi will retail for $48 USD and $78 USD respectively. Select retailers like HBX will stock the pack on July 21.

Wow. You need both.

Everlane To Open Brick-and-Mortar Flagship

I recently discovered about a month ago the Everlane pop-up shop just a few blocks from my work. It was the best thing to ever happen to my life and the worst thing that will ever happen to my wallet. I’m not unfamiliar with the brand. I actually went to one of their events a couple of years ago when they let people come into their space and mingle with other locals while sort of trying to shop. The event was, as you expect, a room full of people dressed to the nines. I was convinced that everyone there was probably the most fashionable people in the city minus me. Since that event, I would check Everlane’s website every now and then, but didn’t feel brave enough to take the plunge. That was…until I discovered their pop up so close to me! My first purchase? The Cotton Long Sleeve Crew in Rhubarb and just for $25!

So with a couple of pop ups under their belt, the brand is now ready to take on a brick-and-mortar flagship. All week, they’ve been prepping their customers for the news and looking to hire! The new store will be located at 461 Valencia Street (still in the Mission district!) A date hasn’t been released yet for when the shop will open, but we know it will be nothing short of amazing.

So Fresh and So Clean

I know on Yow Yow! we’ve been all about millennial pink, but I cannot resist something as white and as clean as this Nike Dualtone Racer. I would have a panic attack getting even a smudge of dirt on it or even wearing it outdoors, but we would manage. This Flyknit reminds me so much of my Oreos and will be available to the masses starting July 7th! I know the 4th of July isn’t necessarily a holiday that involves gifts, but if you’re looking for an excuse… why not? You can buy this pair on Titolo for $115 USD.

adidas – Pink “Zebra”

Every week we have a new shoe on display and every week we love each pair more than the last. Really and truly, this has my name written all over it. I’m obsessed with the baby pink, white, and black combination. I think we’ve mentioned this before, but this color palette were all my favorite colors when I was in 9th grade so that’s a big deal, you know? Back then, that was also because Nordstrom’s Brass Plum – or BP as we know it – went through a transformation and their colors became pink, black and white. A little history for you there.

The pink, black and white combination of the “Zebra” iteration is the perfect mix of feminine and sporty. The Primeknit upper adds texture and dimension to the lifestyle sneaker. For those looking for ankle support, you can find a plush, foot-hugging collar on this silhouette.

It looks like these will be in adidas stores soon, but there is no price marked for it yet – we need to know.

adidas Originals NMD_R1 “White Rose”

These days, I can’t get enough of the minimalist look, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want a boost of color every now and then. These sneakers provide the right amount and how cute are these bursts of pink?! I’m in love. We say this about every pair that we feature on Yow Yow! but even still I’m convinced that even if I owned each pair that I blogged about, that it would never be enough. We’d never be complete. These are an exclusive pair and come with a layer of breathable mesh, tonal details on the laces and a leather heel tab. These were released at select adidas on June 10th.

Blush Pink

If only we liked working out…! I’m obsessed with these beautiful blush pink sneakers from adidas AlphaBOUNCE. Check out those pink laces! Also, doesn’t it look like these might be shimmering? We definitely don’t need another pair of sneakers and these wouldn’t always work with the rest of my closet, but somehow, we would find a way. These are my favorite pair  that I’ve seen so far!

These are being sold for $110 – sounds affordable to me!

Kailijumei’s “Pixie Rose Lipstick”

I’ve always been fascinated with the invention of new and innovative beauty products. I’ve never been a beauty junkie myself (at least not up until recently) but what I love the most is that there’s always going to be a new shade of lipstick or nail color rising onto the scene and that packaging can come in the most creative forms that you would have never imagined. Because it’s spring, we’ve got floral on our minds for months and this “Pixie Rose Lipstick” by Kailijumei is one that we’re super curious about! Each lipstick has a real life bud planted in the middle of it and while it appears clear, there will be a shade tied to it once it is put on your lips.

The lipstick will glide on clear but change to “a bespoke pink based on the wearer’s pH,” according to Vogue.

To have your very own, you can purchase it here for $18 USD.

Starbucks Japan Is Better Than Us

It’s almost like they are two different companies. With a menu already offering cherry blossom inspired beverages, Japan is now offering a drink on their menu (for a limited time) called American Cherry Pie Frappuccino. Did you guys catch that? It’s American, but it’s over in Japan and we’re so jealous! Yes, of course we want that pie topper for ourselves. Why does no other American Starbucks offer us a frapp on the same level as this one? If you’re visiting Japan this spring, make sure you drop in (for all of us that can’t) and purchase the drink offered from April 13 to May 16.

Nike Air Max 95 Candle

Stop what you’re doing. Look at this candle. BLESS this Nike candle and its existence. This is the greatest thing I have seen all day.

Now only if we could find a cute little holder for it to sit on…and of course, never light it ever.

Air Max Day actually falls on March 26th and to commemorate this special day, WHAT THE SHAPE released this amazing piece. These candles are available in pink, yellow, and white. We’ll take all 3, please. If you’d like to be the owner of this, you can visit their Facebook page to make a purchase.

Would You Wear It?

Doesn’t this look like it belongs in a costume shop?! For their Spring/Summer 2017 collection, Gucci released this very quirky sandal with built-in latex socks. If you don’t mind wearing something that gives you a little bit of a plastic sheen, then this is a perfect fit. I actually would love to see this on a person for comparison, however, looking at it in a photo doesn’t make it seem so wearable, right? For a cool $1,190 USD, this can be all yours though!

Nike’s Air Presto Ultra “Lemon”

Are these not the most darling Nikes you’ve ever seen?! They are the perfect shade of “Lemon Drop” and because they are so sunshine-y, we’re naturally gravitating towards these. Fun fact: my nickname from my best friend used to be Funshine (after the Care Bear!) Now, I’m not saying that it will be easy pairing these with outfits, but they certainly will add a whole lot of spunk to them. It really wouldn’t stop me from purchasing them.

“Lemon” will be sold for about $160 USD.

Stila’s New Liquid Eyeshadow Shades

It has been a few years since I’ve worn eyeshadows as part of my daily routine, but I mostly cut it out to save myself some time and to truly have for myself an “every day” look and a look for nights when I’m going out and dressing up a bit more. When I saw that Stila had released these new liquid eyeshadows though, I stopped in my tracks. I can’t get over how shimmery and mermaid-like these shades look and now I’m filled with curiosity on how these would look on me! As some of you may recall, I am Stila’s #1 fan when it comes to their eyeliner, however, in doing a quick search… I just realized that they have discontinued my favorite one. Well, that’s quite a plot twist. Whatever the case though, I’m excited that these new liquid eyeshadows also double as a shimmery eyeliner. I haven’t ever used a liquid eyeshadow before, but in watching the video below, it seems easy enough and application is sometimes the most difficult challenge for me when it comes to new products.

Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Flyknit in “Multicolor”

Our Nike Flyknit love affair continues! If you’re wondering why there has been an increase in Flyknit posts recently it’s because of two things: 1) I own a pair and every day I can’t imagine my life without them and 2) I’ve been following the blog Hypebae for the past few months after following its brother site Hypebeast for years. Hypebae is the one that keeps me up to date on all of the new releases and every time I see a new announcement I pretty much throw my wallet across the room away from me to avoid what could be a dangerous situation – a growing collection of sneakers.

Now multicolor is not exactly a shade that I gravitate towards, but how GOOD do these look?! They aren’t over the top and in a way even though they are an eclectic mix of threads, it still feels very minimal. These are gorgeous. These are now being sold for $150 USD.

McDonald’s Cherry Blossom McFlurry

I haven’t had one of these since I was a kid, but when I saw this announcement I was immediately curious about it. First off, how cute is it that they have a Cherry Blossom McFlurry?! Can American McDonald’s have one too? Conveniently timed with the cherry blossoms in Japan, this McFlurry is topped with sakura mochi (rice cake sauce) and has swirled in bits of soft pink waffle cone. Yum! This special McFlurry is available starting today in Japan McDonald’s and is being priced at $2.60 USD or 290 yen. This special treat will be available through March until early April.

adidas’ UltraBOOST X

I’ve never been a runner, but I would get into running if it meant that I could wear these all the time. This past week, adidas did a huge promo in San Francisco with other bloggers and female running enthusiasts to promote their new UltraBOOST X. This is one sexy sneaker. I don’t know much about sneakers, but from what I’ve read – this is the one you want to own. Similar to the PureBOOST X, this one was made to cater to the female foot. While wearing it, women will find that the sneaker provides stability, support, and extra comfort while you’re on the move. Also, this goes without saying, but how wonderful is this color palette for the UltraBOOST X? It’s our favorite colors in one shoe. “Orange Glow” (pictured above) is the first to be released, but soon the brand will release the sneaker in a few other colors including “Vapour Green” and “Cherry Wood” by Stella McCartney. You can make a purchase online now or wait until it is in-stores at the end of the month. These are being priced at $180 USD.
