Janie Bryant’s mad genius work on Mad Men is finally available to stylish gals of the 21st century through her collaboration with Black Halo. The collection features eight amazing pieces and I’m desperately sighing for one of her elegantly edgy designs. Modest skirt lengths are paired with sexy slits and bold prints are balanced with soft silhouettes — it’s everything you could hope for and more from the Emmy-nominated costume designer. Check out the collection for your own Mad Men moment.

With the second installment of her collaboration with AG jeans hitting stores last week, I’m already sighing for the fabulous Fall collection. True to her seventies aesthetic, the designs feature high-waists, flares, lots of denim, and a personal fave of mine, corduroy– not to mention overalls and rompers. This chick makes anything look cool; it’s even almost affordable to dress like the It girl herself…head to AG Jeans for a blast from the past and, let’s face it, your fashion future.

PeterPilottoAncientGreekSandalsThe news of an exciting new footwear collaboration delightfully surprised the fashion world recently, and now I’m sighing for a coveted pair of Peter Pilotto for Ancient Greek Sandals. The fun prints and colors on these sandals lend an extra spring in your summer step and beautifully complement a simple white cotton dress (a summer staple). Unfortunately, the brilliant designs are part of the Resort 2016 collection and won’t be out until November, so all that’s left is finding a tropical destination for winter vacation to show these babies off!

For our first West Coast family reunion with little kids (and big kids too!), I’ve got one thing on my mind: Disneyland. Upon researching our upcoming trip to the original magic kingdom, I discovered the Vans collaboration with Disney, and was pleasantly surprised to see that Mickey and Minnie are making a comeback. As timeless as they are, this isn’t the first time that Mr. and Mrs. Mouse have trended in fashion. Vintage anything is always in vogue among street style stars, but Mickey and Minnie are near and dear to any big kid’s heart, making them especially fun and youthful in the sometimes serious world of fashion.

MaryKatrantzouAdidasSkirt

It’s Superbowl Sunday! And for a fashion girl like me it is so much easier to get in the game day spirit with cool gear like from the Mary Katrantzou for Adidas collection–that’s why I’m sighing for this incredibly cool skirt from the genius collaboration. This scuba-jersey skirt features a trendy print inspired by cleats, and even has zippers on the side for an extra touch of sporty-chic. One team will lose tonight, but nothing beats a collaboration like this.

WangHMSweatshirt

Ladies and gents, the designer collab everyone has been waiting for is almost here! The lookbook for Alexander Wang’s 58-piece collection for H&M was launched just a few days ago, and it. is. perfect. His sporty-chic pieces are amazingly wearable while still maintaining their edge. My personal favorite is this cropped sweatshirt, which offers a fresh new spin on the lazy fave. The simply fabulous top comes in a heather grey and solid black (like most of his collection) and it goes with absolutely everything. Prepare to get in line, his limited collection is available on November 6 online and in 250 H&M stores worldwide.
