Converse One Star Spring 2010 Lookbook


Converse One Star Spring 2010 Lookbook

Target released images of its Converse One Star Spring 2010 collection featuring "all-American sportswear with a youthful spirit and artistic edge." Looks like they took a little inspiration from British model Agyness Deyn for the styling. Nothing too groundbreaking but definitely a very wearable, laid-back collection of cool basics under $40, perfect for summer! Check the Target pressroom for prices and availability.

Sonia Rykiel Pour H&M Behind-the-Scenes Video





For the first time the entire collection from the up-coming Sonia Rykiel pour H&M knitwear collection for women and girls, which arrives in around 200 stores on February 20, 2010, is displayed in an intimate video. Sonia and Nathalie Rykiel and Margareta van den Bosh take the viewer behind the scenes to reveal details about the new collection—what they love about it and why they designed it the way they did. Upon watching this video, I learned I've been mispronouncing Rykiel's name this whole time. How awkward! Love the stripes, but will the impact be lost if you don't have the red hair to go along with it?

Beauty Review: (seed) Grape Seed Enriched Body Care Products

by Kiki Bella
I'm a fan of the eco-friendly green movement we've seen lately in beauty care, and have found yet another awesome company to let you all know about. It's called Seed, and they recently sent me three new complimentary products to try out: (seed) Nourishing Body Lotion in Invigorating Citrus Blend scent; (seed) Conditioning Hair Shampoo Bar, Unscented; and (seed) Moisturizing Body Soap in Invigorating Citrus Thyme.
