H&M and Lanvin tease dramatic new collaboration with trippy film

When H&M announces their latest guest designer collaboration, people loose their minds, and for good reason. The always-trendy mall staple’s import of high-end designer goods at the store’s wallet-friendly prices is enough to make a fashionista totally cuckoo. So it’s no wonder that when French powerhouse Lanvin announced that their flawless Alber Elbaz would be next in line to guest-design for the store, desperate women in need of taffeta dresses everywhere set up special Google Alerts for the first sneak peek at the collection.

Luckily, the wait is over, as H&M and Lanvin have debuted a short, “Alice in Wonderland”-esque film previewing the collection. So what exactly are we in-store for (pun intended…)?  Sequined tees, taffeta-petticoats, strong shoulders, slouchy trenches, and lots of ruffles. Ooh la la, how the French know drama! Check out these showstoppers and more at your local H&M starting November 20th – just watch out for flying stilettos; it might get dangerous out there!

Cozy Up in a Circle Scarf

As the chilly fall weather gets colder and colder, getting out of bed and out the door seems to get harder and harder. Sure, those trivial activities like running errands and going to work beckon, but it’s so warm under the covers and there’s a marathon of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo…

While the ideal situation would be booking a flight to Miami with the return flight sometime in March, our schedules (and wallets!) don’t exactly have the same flexibility as someone like Kim Kardashian.  So instead, we offer you this simple, knit solution: a circle scarf. While American Apparel has marketed this thick, infinite take on the traditional scarf for years, the trend is really taking flight this season, in gloriously chunky knits sure to keep you cozy on even the bitterest of days.

Check out American Apparel’s knit version that comes in a cool snake-skin print here: http://store.americanapparel.net/rsaas500.html?cid=51, or simply stop by your favorite boutique or mall-store (Forever 21 and H&M have great, cheap options!) to stock up on this fall essential. Now wrap on your new scarf around that frozen neck of yours, turn on Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, and grab a tropical beverage. Just like Florida, right?

Alexa Chung for Madewell Line Drops, Our Heart Swells

She’s a model. She’s a contributing editor at British ELLE. She hosted a hilarious, albeit short-lived talk show on MTV, and she can wear a pair of oxfords like no other. Seriously, is there anything that Alexa Chung can’t do? Today the It Girl gives us even more to pine after as her exclusive clothing line for Madewell makes its grand debut. Chung’s fall collection for the chain store is unsurprisingly vintage-inspired and offers an assortment of on-trend skinnies, velvet shorts, and demure blouses. Check out the collection at Madewell.com, then swoon like the rest of us.

Bold Shoulder

We just spied this sparkle-shouldered frock, $37.50, at Liberty 27!

We’re suckers for horizontal stripes, and the glitzy appliqué make it so flapper-futuristic!
