‪@tyrabanks: Running late to a meeting. Why? Because I couldn’t get my damn winged eyeliner straight!
Something tells us they’ll wait. (Besides, eyeliner = priority.)

‪@HotelFoxtrot: God bless whoever invented fleece tights.
And don’t bless whatever phenomenon is making us still need them. #almostspring

‪@dallasshaw: And yes I am spending my fri night in bed reading. Commence judging.
Even the ultra-stylish need downtime. #youregood

‪@KennethCole: Life is short. Buy the damn ‪#shoes.
Go on, listen to the man.

‪@dkny: How to get through Monday: Dress chic & carry on.
In our world, this applies to every day.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

No matter how cold our iPhone® says it is, we can officially say it’s spring come March 20. 

1. Nothing makes us smile like a fresh bouquet of tulips.

2. Pull out the picnic baskets. We’re bringing the sandwiches (and the wine).

3. Biking to work is a lot more enjoyable once the ice disappears.

4. Relentless rainstorms are just another excuse to buy new Hunter boots.

5. More daylight hours? A reason to pick up some sunglasses.

Karl Lagerfeld Encourages the Fitting-Room Selfie

Karl Lagerfeld is jumping on the selfie bandwagon. According to a statement from his label, the fitting rooms in his new (new as in just-opened-Friday) London flagship store are outfitted with iPads® for complete selfie-taking bliss.

Each device is loaded with Karl-inspired photo filters that shoppers can apply and then share through social media and email.

Looks like I’ll have to trek to London to take advantage of every last filter – no complaints here.

Wake Up and Smell the… Pharrell

Pharrell Williams’s Arby’s-inspired hat is about to be old news. The “Get Lucky” singer has moved on from toppers and onto scents, collaborating with adored Japanese fragrance label Commes des Garçons to create his very own perfume.

Label sound familiar? That’s probably because he’s been name-dropping it in a few of his latest songs. But while you can hear those catchy tunes now, you won’t get a whiff of the new scent until next fall. Until then, feel free to scour Goodwill for discarded Arby’s hats.

‪@jenniferweiner: Brad Womack just woke up rejoicing that he is no longer the most hated bachelor of all time.
It’s okay. It’s okay. No matter what, it’s still okay.

Ring us the next time you need a lunch date in Milan. #soin

Any, if it means it’s pedicure season.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We’ll admit it: we weeped a bit when we couldn’t make it to see these runway shows abroad. But, hey, that’s what live-streaming is for, right?

1. Glittery booties and mini dresses, oh my! Saint Laurent took mod to a whole new (and glitzy) level.

2. Sure, we spotted a few animal prints, but bold, solid hues stole the Gucci show.

3. If Red Riding Hood was into designer labels, she would own this entire Dolce & Gabbana collection. (And we’d be raiding her closet.)

4. What happens when you mix metallics, pastels, and seventies sportswear? Miu Miu F/W 14.

5. We’re pretty sure Emilio Pucci just single-handedly made printed fur a thing. And we’re ever so grateful.

Charlotte Olympia Means Business with New 9-to-5 Line

Charlotte Olympia designer Charlotte Dellal is beloved for her whimsical shoes (ice cream cone and zodiac sign heels, anyone?), but since they’re just a touch too quirky for the corporate world, she’s creating two brand-new lines of work-appropriate shoes and handbags, according to WWD. What can you expect? Simple leather bags, boardroom-ready pointed-toe pumps, and stacked heels.

The best part? In true Charlotte Olympia fashion, there will be a clever twist in the form of briefcase-shaped shoe boxes, complete with a pair of pantyhose.
