Abercrombie Kids Launches Gender Neutral Collection

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.

Brooklynn Prince’s Critics Choice Awards Acceptance Speech

Cutest thing we’ve seen all week and so well deserved. I absolutely loved Brooklynn Prince in The Florida Project. That dedication at the end of her speech was the sweetest.

A Collection Part 49

We don’t always time these posts with the end of the year, but it feels good, doesn’t it? Even as I search for photos it’s nice to be able to put something together that wraps up the end of the year and my feelings towards a new year. The start of this post doesn’t look anything like the end of this post, which I think is pretty different for a change. You can definitely tell that I’m feeling some sort of way by the end of this. What is it exactly? That I’m holding on to millennial pink? That I’ve got a love inanimate objects? Those things, but maybe a couple of other things that aren’t so obvious.

Limited Too’s Pop Up

Limited Too will always hold for a very special place in my heart. It was the first retailer that I truly felt that I could identify with as a young girl growing up in the 90’s and discovering my own style. It meant so much to me that it was the first employer I ever had when I was just 16 years old and could finally start working. I lasted a whole three months before I decided to throw in the towel and jump ship to another retailer literally across from the store. Even though I wasn’t there anymore, I wanted Limited Too to continue on being the place that it was for young girls. Not too long afterwards, the store went through a name change to “Justice” and then ultimately was bought by Bluestar Alliance in 2015. It seemed like their footprint was disappearing from malls almost everywhere.

Now, word has dropped this week that Limited Too is staging a comeback and I couldn’t be more onboard. Any by onboard, I mean supporting from afar because I can no longer fit into their clothes. Centered around back-to-school shoppers, Bluestar has announced that Limited Too is coming back for a limited time only mobile pop-up! The pop-up will tour around New York City starting August 6th until August 10th.

The Limited Too back-to-school pop-up will start on 3rd Avenue, between 59th and 60th Streets (on August 6), and then will be stationed in Herald Square (on August 7 and 8), moving to Union Square (August 9) and finally ending the tour with a stop near Flatiron (August 10).

I cannot wait to see what their new merchandise will look like! The styles in which I wore as a kid and even the ones that I sold when I worked there will have vastly changed from what kids might be looking for now, but you can definitely assume that the glitter will be everywhere and that graphic tees and slogans are still a hot item.

Katy Perry Interviewed By A 7-year old

Other than a very small handful of songs, I don’t particularly enjoy Katy Perry much as a performer. This interview, however, is the most adorable thing I’ve seen today so we had to share because how cute is Poppy?!

An Octopus Playground in Shenzhen

Can I dial you all into a little secret? When I was younger, I used to actually want to design playgrounds for a living. In no way, shape, or form did my education ever take me on that path, but I still remember watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as a kid and the scene when the group heads into the factory to find that everything is edible was like my dream. Personally, I wished that would’ve happened to me, but on the other hand, I always wondered how cool it would be to create something like that or bring something similar to that to life. Again, I know it’s a chocolate factory and not a playground… but you know where I’m headed with this right? Another example is in that episode of Arthur when Francine takes everyone to her dad’s workplace – the garbage dump – and there’s an amazing playground at the end of the episode!

Okay we just had a moment where I “nerded” out on this. To the point of the story now – a giant octopus playground has emerged in Shenzhen and look how glorious it is! These kids are so lucky. The most friendly octopus you have ever seen was designed by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman and UAP. Does this seem familiar to you at all? Hofman was also the designer behind the enormous bunny in Taiwan!

A Collection Part 47

 

The theme of this collection is minimalism. Before I left my last job, my life was very noisy. My mind was constantly racing with a million thoughts. I wasn’t always able to communicate my feelings articulately. I was stressed with needing to be two places at once, and in general my home – my sanctuary felt cluttered. The time off that I had from working made me feel well again. I felt like I could take care of myself the way I needed to and get that clear head that I was seeking. I couldn’t remember a time where I was THAT happy! And that’s why it was also challenging to get back to work after that… but more on that later. This post is a collection of things that just feel simple to me. There’s not a lot of noise in them and as you’ll notice in these photos, more space than usual. Enjoy!

Golden Globe Awards 2017

Viola Davis in Michael Kors Collection

I spent a great deal of time today glued to my TV. Those hours of the red carpet and the actual award show aren’t hours that I can get back. My two takeaways? Well, I didn’t watch enough good movies in the last year and everyone that tried to pull off a long-sleeved dress this year on the red carpet failed. I did have a couple of favorite looks though and they came from those that surprised me! I always like doing this post the night of the award show so that people can have something to scroll through when morning comes around so with that here are my favorite looks as well as those that missed the mark.

I’m actually tired of this trend with dresses being one shouldered and have been for awhile, however, I love this color on Viola and she looks stunning. I also like that she decided to simplify both her and makeup so that the dress could just do its thing. The head-scratching moment of the night for this dress was when Ryan Seacrest asked her what color her dress was while everyone at home was like “um, can’t you tell what color this is?”

Sarah Jessica Parker wearing Vera Wang

Very rarely am I ever impressed by anything SJP wears. She looks like a marshmallow in this gown and I’m not happy with the way she styled her hair. The only way this look could redeem itself is if it were sleeveless and her hair were let down.

Stranger Things Cast Visit Jimmy Fallon

First the cast talks about Millie and Finn’s kiss on Stranger Things. Man… I haven’t even gotten this far yet.

Then the cast plays a game of “Stranger Strings” where they read off facts one-by-one and spray the person they think wrote it. During this, we learn that Millie can rap and she’s a BO$$.

I would adopt that Gaten kid. He is too much.
