The mothers of fashion have united. The movement is underway – a movement to end mother-to-child HIV transmission by December 31, 2015. The countdown has begun thanks to an exclusive collaboration from Shopbop, Vogue and 22 top fashion designers (all mothers, by the way) that is donating 100% of the collection‘s profits to Born Free Africa. The MAC AIDS Fund is also matching all donations and the total purchase price of all products sold, up to $500,000. 98% of cases of HIV transmission from mother to child are totally preventable; and it only takes one pill a day (Read more facts here). This campaign is going to make a difference.

The 50-item collection includes limited-edition pieces from designers including Céline, Prada, Isabel Marant, Chloé, Diane von Furstenberg, and J.Crew. The clothing and accessories feature original prints from Kenyan-born artist, Wangechi Mutu and include items for both mother and child. I don’t know about you, but I am extremely inspired by the beautiful campaign and behind the scenes photos above and I love that it’s so easy to join the global fight against AIDS by shopping from this beautiful collection.

Spring Shoe Guide: Mules


Every season there is always one shoe trend that I am just not quite sure about at first. Enter the mule for Spring/Summer 2014. I’ve long associated this style with my 60+ friends and was quite surprised when I started to notice some of Hollywood’s “it girls” rocking these backless slip-ons. But the mule has been reinvented by designers, featuring modern updates like architectural structure, youthful heels and sexy cutouts. These styles aren’t just for grandma and if you wanna be on the cutting edge of the fashion world, I’d add a pair to your footwear collection right away.

No. 1) Dolce Vita Odea, $169; No. 2) Vince Camuto Jaso mule, $110; No. 3) Topshop Waltz perforated leather open toe mule, $85; No. 4) Pour la Victoire Eva mule, $250; No. 5) Gianvito Rossi python and leather mules, $1,050; No. 6) Tibi Bee Heel, $375; No. 7) Vince Kasia mules, $395; No. 8) Joie Ashland wedge, $325; No. 9) ALDO Acaren, $100; No. 10) Jeffrey Campbell Druid open toe mule, $155; No. 11) Fréda Salvador Shine, $425; No. 12) Club Monaco peep-toe mule, $289; No. 13) Topshop heeled mule, $140.

Spring Shoe Guide: Caged Heels


Every woman needs a good, trendy high heel for the season. Conservative pumps and comfort-friendly wedges don’t cut it when it comes to cocktail parties, weddings and girls nights. This spring, a caged heel is our must-have for these fun nights out. They’re super sexy and stylish – the ideal statement shoe. What’s even better is that a caged heel doesn’t have to always be paired with a skirt or a dress. They sexy up a pair of boyfriend jeans or a jumpsuit like you wouldn’t believe!

Spring Shoe Guide: Espadrilles


Today, I am launching part one of our Spring Shoe Guide, starting with the espadrille flat. All espadrilles share their defining jute rope sole, but this season we’re seeing a lot more than the traditional canvas uppers. Leather, lace, calf-hair, studs, and perforations are just some of the ways designers are giving these comfortable slip-ons some extra oomph. Easily paired with denim cutoffs, a sundress, or a cropped pant and v-neck tee, these shoes will be sure to become your everyday casual shoe.

Note: Learn more about our favorites by clicking on embedded links found on the image above! We’re excited about this new feature and hope it makes shopping our roundups much easier.
