"Inside Lands’ End’s Quest for a Younger, Cooler Customer"

I love reading anything and everything fashion related. Being in the know is what keep me motivated as a blogger. That being said, I ran into an article about Lands' End yesterday morning via Bloomberg Business. I had previously seen the Lands' End spread in Vogue and wondered how the company, that had once carried my school uniforms, had secured a spot in the exclusive magazine. With that being said I loved the editorial. However when I visited landsend.com I was haunted by the reminder of prep school uniforms past. 


This attitude towards the aging clothing label is what the new Lands' End CEO Federica Marchionni is trying to fix. The past Dolce & Gabbana president of U. S. operations, according to Bloomberg was "hired to revive the aging label after its spinoff from former parent Sears Holdings." However can she revamp the company without loosing the interest of their loyal parental crowd? If brands don't grow and continue to reach the next generation of influencers, they seise to exist. My generation of Lands' End uniform wears won't be reaching out to Lands' End for our mom jeans when we have kids. Too many scars from the days of uniform prep schools past.

 
This cardigan sweater gives me flashbacks to Blair Waldorf when she visited Yale in Gossip Girl. Does anyone have fun in a cardigan? Blair Waldorf would say only while scheming. Fashion is a way of expressing yourself, and can you really express yourself in a cardigan? I look forward to seeing what Federica Marchionni has in store for the company. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

The September Issue: Vogue

Crisp pages that crinkle and crack with every turn as they are separated. From Ralph Lauren to Prada and Dior, just the first couple pages allude to its exclusivity. Could I be talking about anything other than the September Issue of Vogue? Nope... The release of the September issue is a holiday for a select few. For those working for Vogue, it means the first second to stop, breath and sleep in months. Every year it gets bigger and better, and this year was no different. Beyoncé graced the cover looking like a piece of art, but honestly when has B not looked like perfection? The icing on the cake, Amazon partnered with Condé Nast and made it even easier to receive this highly anticipated issue. Amazon will deliver it straight to your door in a limited edition custom VOGUE box. 


Because I've been on-the-go all summer, I decided to pick up a copy at the nearest Target. Target was allowed early release rights of the magazine, and was released in stores on the 14th. The cashier checking me out laughed and joked that I must really like reading. He's not kidding! This September issue of Vogue is 832 pages of inspiration. 


The issue over all was spectacular, the editorials were fun and fresh, and the ads featured the models who are most relevant today: Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Tavi Gevinson, Karlie Kloss and Margaret Zhang to name a few. Below are a few of my favorite spreads.

My #FRANLOVE arrived from Francesca's just in time for my annual summer trip to the lake.

I love Francesca's beach cover-ups, I got this one in May and have been wearing it nonstop all summer. They have so many cute options for affordable prices. I'm sharing some of my favorites below.

Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's


I feel so blessed to have been able to call New York City's upper east side my home for these two weeks. New York is one of the most exciting and exhausting places in the world. The city is filled with Type A personalities willing to do anything to fight their way to the top. On Tuesday, I was ready to call it a night at like 5 pm! The exhaustion of the city that never sleeps got to me. However, I knew if I went to bed that early I would be up at 2 am. Instead my roommate recommended I watch "Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's," a documentary about the little piece of perfection lives on the corner of 58th street and 5th avenue. If you have a Netflix account, finding this documentary is easy.  


Did you know there was once a seventeen-room penthouse on the top floor, that overlooked Fifth Avenue and Central Park? American dream, right! After watching the documentary I desperately wanted to visit the store (well done Bergdorf's PR team).
