Self Love is Fashionable, Empowering, & Charitable with We Are Enough Co.

Self Love is Fashionable, Empowering, & Charitable with We Are Enough Co.

“No matter who you are, no matter what you do or how you define yourself, you need to hear this. You need to know that however badly you feel like you’re fucking up, however much you struggle, even when you feel like you’ll never get it right – you are enough. We promise you, you are so enough.”

Founded by a powerhouse girlfriend-boyfriend duo Lauren and Adam, We Are Enough Co. takes a uniquely fashionable approach to communicating a powerful mission of self-love. From coffee mugs to pins, sweatshirts to t-shirts, and patches to tote bags, every piece in a collection donates proceeds of each sale to a designated charity.

The Unapologetic Collection, the brand’s latest, celebrates “inclusivity, intersectionality and the empowerment of women everywhere.” The description for the Empowered Women shirt alone makes you want to rejoice in your femininity and celebrate the strength of sisterhood!

(I need this in my life)


What makes this shirt that much better is the mission behind it: ten percent of the proceeds go straight to the nonprofit Daughters of Eve, whose mission is to eradicate both gender-based violence and female genital mutilation.

For all you coffee lovers and morning-haters, there’s something for you, too. Start your day on a positive note with the signature mug! We can’t think of a more adorable yet empowering way to start the day. A percentage of the profits go to the Leeway Domestic Violence and Abuse Service. In fact, profits from every item sold go to a specific foundation, so rest assured that your money is making a difference no matter what you buy.

How about a little self love with your coffee?


Keep an eye out for more from We Are Enough Co. This is only the beginning for this incredible UK-based brand, and we can’t wait to see (and buy!) what they come up with next.

And yes, I am definitely buying that shirt 😉

Jimmy Choo is worth like, a lot.

Jimmy Choo is worth like, a lot.

It was announced today that Michael Kors has agreed to buy Jimmy Choo for an outstanding $1.2 billion dollars.

That’s a lot of high heels.

The premium/luxury fashion industry has been feeling pretty daring this year. This latest buy comes hot off the heals of Coach’s announcement to buy Kate Spade for a very pretty, quirky penny.

But don’t expect for the brand to change it’s aesthetics. Known for its strappy stilettos, handbags, perfume, and additional accessories, Jimmy Choo has definitely discovered what works and what doesn’t for the brand. Michael Kors knows this, too. They’ve announced that they’ll keep the existing JC management team, so expect to see the same swoon-worthy designs during this massive transition!

Project Runway (finally) Makes It Work For All

Project Runway (finally) Makes It Work For All

“Make it work, designers!”

You’ve all probably heard Tim Gunn’s famous tagline. And now, it finally applies to women of all shapes and sizes.

Project Runway just announced that Season 16, premiering August 17 on Lifetime, will be using models of all shapes and sizes ranging from 0-22 for the competition. This is a big deal because it’s the first time the show has embraced diverse models. On previous seasons, model diversity was only represented by the “real woman challenge.” Come on, that’s obviously pandering.

But last year, Tim Gunn made headlines when he wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post claiming that the fashion industry “turned its back on plus-size women.”

Seriously, how amazing is this? Sure, it could’ve happened earlier. But it’s the progress that counts.
We’re excited to tune in to the show!

Your Favorite Mall Retailers are Going Bankrupt

Your Favorite Mall Retailers are Going Bankrupt

RIP: your favorite mall retailers. It looks like 2017 won’t be so kind.

You can expect nearly 10,000 nationwide store closings from the likes of Macy’s, Sears, JC Penney, Abercrombie & Fitch, Ralph Lauren, BCBG, The Limited, and even True Religion.

In fact, the store closings are so wide spread that the number of store closings is up 53% from that of the Great Recession in 2008. You can blame the rise of e-commerce, lack of adaptability, and less-than-desirable-merchandise for the trend.

Known for their preference of spending money more on experiences than stuff, millennials are being blamed for these dramatic shifts as well (of course 🙄).

Take a look at the graphic below to see how many store closuress to expect in the coming year!

Nike’s self-lacing shoe announced

Nike’s self-lacing shoe announced

On Dec 1, The Future Launches

story suggestion by Nicole M.

On December 1st, you’ll be able to snag the consumer-ready version for $720.

Last year Nike released an exclusive 89 pairs, of which the first one went to Michael J. Fox and then the rest were sold to benefit his foundation for Parkinson’s research (how cool is that?). If $720 doesn’t sound expensive enough, the Hong Kong Dragon 8 Auction House sold a pair for $104,000 to an anonymous buyer a couple of weeks ago. Sounds like the demand for these is worldwide! Will you be snagging a pair?
