I have always had trouble getting excited about design collaborations, but always told myself that if Alexander Wang ever did another one (after his collection with Gap 5 years ago) I would definitely have to snag something. I was excited when H&M decided to send over this exclusive jersey for the collection. I had fun styling it with my (only) Wang shoes and some simple black basics because, well, that’s so me.
The collection boasts awesome sporty pieces, boxy silhouettes, and amazing typography (I’m part-designer…I can’t help myself). I think my favorite piece is this dress. So cool. Can’t wait to get myself over to Boston next week to get it.
The collection launches in stores and online November 6th!

Sometimes I get that overwhelming feeling of, “I NEED to see this singer/band live.” It’s very rare but I know that when I’ve learned every word to every song I’ve been able to get my hands on that I’ve caught the music love bug. Banks was one of those. Ria had asked me if I wanted to see her months ago. At the time, I was a little unsure about whether or not I’d be going to see her at home or at the Boston show (remember, I was moving there once?) but I’m glad that seeing her at Grand Central worked out better for me. For one, small venues are always my favorite due to atmosphere and intimacy. I also got to meet her for a quick second after the show.
It was a great way to end my summer back home.
If you don’t know Banks yet (I’ve definitely posted a song of hers here before), then do yourself a favor.
