We teamed up with Saks Fifth Avenue to enlist three top fashion bloggers from three U.S. cities for a special assignment. Each woman applied her hometown flavor and personal taste to re-envision our Love Crossbody. The result: three very special, very different designs in our Love shape that will all be available to purchase exclusively from Saks. Pretty cool.
Before the big reveal next week, meet the bloggers behind the makeovers.
First up, Blair Eadie of Atlantic // Pacific. A bicoastal girl at heart, Blair is currently repping NYC (heyo!). She’s all about that urban-friendly preppy style. Think plaid, stripes, and pops of primary colors edged up with skinnies, a killer red lip, and sometimes a beanie. We expect her
It’s Monday, which means two things: you’re secretly going to be spending the entire work day scrolling through Instagram, and you’re also going to wish you were still in bed. Cue the totally perfect account @alwassssleep and the consistently dreamy bedscapes that have us drifting off in our ergonomic office chairs. Here’s a free sample:
Truth: entrepreneurial stories are damn compelling. Especially the ones where a brave twenty-something leaves behind a sure thing to do the thing she secretly loves and cares about. And that’s pretty much the story of Kate Gilman, CEO and founder of Petal by Pedal, who jumped from a career in law to greener pastures. Literally. Her young NYC-based start-up is an environmentally-friendly take on the standard florist. They source their farm-fresh blooms from a variety of local New York growers, build handcrafted bouquets that follow the seasonal growing calendar, and make all deliveries by bike (get the name?).

When it comes to career advice, people usually tell you one of two things: you’ve either got to go out on a limb, or you’ve got to go with what you know. Monica Royer is here to tell you both. She took a life-changing personal event, the birth of her daughter, and channeled all that new-found passion and focus into starting a company. Her start-up, Monica + Andy, makes clothes, blankets and gifts for kids (and moms), all out of organic, non-toxic and super cute materials. Needless to say, Rebecca’s obsessed. Here, she dishes about what it means to meld one dream into another, how to ace your interview with her, and what she wishes she were doing instead of emailing.
So, where’re you from?
That would be Downers Grove,
First things first: if you have not yet heard anything by GIVERS, you are probably living a sad-ish life. Secondly: if you’ve heard them and never seen them live, you’re missing out. They kick a live show’s ass for many reasons, one of which is thanks to Tiffany Lamson, the band’s main and only woman. We got a chance to chat with the magnetic vocalist/percussionist/ukelele-ist ahead of the band’s show tonight at Rough Trade in Brooklyn. Find out what she said about spandex, Chinese medicine, and headbanging (She’s mastered it. Trust.).
