Marc by Marc Jacobs has taken their line of denim one step further by expanding the collection so that it could stand on its own. This expansion includes nine new styles in twelve washes, so there’s going to be quite a lot of choice. The line will start hitting stores this month and will cost $138 - $228.

“Most of it. It depends on the day. Like most women, I have days where I feel like today I’m not leaving the house - you know days where you’ve got a spot on your nose or when you’ve just got off a flight, eaten fish and chips and feel really bloated - that one happens a lot to me. You have to accept yourself though, and accept that there will always be something to worry about. It’s much easier just to accept things.”—Lara Stone (when asked if she disliked any part of her body)
I wasn’t much of a fan of Coach until recently. The brand has been making some excellent strides in the right direction in the past few years. The addition of their Classic bags, which lack the overwhelming labeling that their other bags are victim to, make the chain look much more elegant. I am seriously crushing on the purse above.

Back in my high school days, a girl in my history class did a presentation on Chanel. It was a fairly good presentation except for the fact that she persistently pronounced the uber famous fashion house’s name “channel”. From that day I’ve wondered how many people out there are mispronouncing fashion labels. Probably a lot. This article is about a spoof pronunciation manual, which has come up with so absolutely ridiculous ways to pronounce Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Versace, and more!
No offense to Michael Kors's other endeavors, but I think this is my absolute favorite thing to come from the designer yet! Kors has teamed up with Fossil (the company that’s done his watch line since 2004) to create his first ever jewelry collection. The designer’s accessories are always classic, elegant, and timeless and these new additions to the Michael Kors line are no exception. In fact, everything fits with his aesthetic perfectly. And, my favorite aspect of the collection is the price range, which starts at $45.

Temperley's Resort 2012 collection is full of romance, rich colors, and chic neutrals. The collection looks like it's ready for a modern day princess! I really can't think of much else to say for this collection, so you're gonna have to take a look.
J. Crew is a great place to pick up staple pieces for your wardrobe, but their higher end collection is a whole different animal. The collection is definitely higher end and features clothes that are still staples, but could definitely give your other basics a pick-me-up!
Nicholas Kirkwood was definitely catering to statement shoe fanatics with his newest collection. Quite a few shoes feature snakeskin, which is often used as embellishment which keeps it looking extra chic. Other shoes feature glitter and neon, which are both eye-catchers in their own right. And, for those who prefer the more classic, there are some lovely standard pumps too!
Rebecca Taylor is the queen of summer dresses, but her newest Resort collection shows her savvy style is not limited to frocks. This collection is full of fun prints. There’s also a nice airy quality to everything, even the heavier pants.
Armani Exchange is one of my favorite designer diffusion lines. The brand always dishes out clothing that is youthful, chic, and a little bit edgy. This collection is absolutely huge, which means it’s chock full of things I’d love to throw in my closet! Also, the lovely people at Racked, went to the AX showroom to take some pictures of the clothes up close, so I’ve included a few of those snapshots.
