Unicorns, Kittens, and Crop Tops

Forever 21, of course, is filled with crop tops these days. I like their range of crop, as not everyone wants the sports bra version but still wants to bare some belly. 

Best is when you can wear unicorns and kittens on your crop top.
Galaxy unicorn muscle t-shirt. I know, it's got it all.
Kitty print cropped muscle t-shirt. Both of these shirts made my 4yo go crazy. A hit with multiple generations.

Here's how I wear my crop top these days: layered over a non-crop top. But I am no crop-top prude: PLEASE, if you so desire, WEAR CROP TOPS EVERY DAY. Take advantage of your crop-top years. Also see: short-short years. You will feel enormous satisfaction when, upon seeing adorable examples of crop tops walking down the street, your partner says "You always wore those when I met you." Yes, that means you grabbed your crop top years by the horns and wrestled them to the ground. Now go to Forever 21 on 34th Street and stock up for some crop top carpe diem.

Stranded Island Fashion Games: The Mango Edition

Let's say you're stranded on a not-so-deserted island, like Manhattan, and you can only wear one single line of clothing (and look fabulous in all of it, of course). Well, I've got the line for you, and it's now on 34th Street.

Mango's Premium collection. It's flawless. It's island-ready (if that island is Manhattan) and it won't break your bank.  
Kimono $129.99, palazzo trouser and kimono-style gilet $69.99.

Cropped top $49.99, boxy sweatshirt $59.99.

I tried on several pieces last week and I want it all for fall. Yes, I could joyfully get by this autumn in New York with just this collection!

Now Open: Pandora Herald Square

Congratulations to Adam Gindi of Diamonds & Dials, who just opened a new Pandora concept store in Herald Square. It's a gorgeous new addition to this block just south of 34th Street on Broadway, next door to Gap Herald Square.

Adam is one of the last independent owner/operators on 34th Street. He recently closed Diamonds & Dials Herald Square, but is still entrenched in the 34th Street district with Diamonds & Dials Greeley Square and this new Pandora store. I highly recommend visiting Adam in one of his locations (they are practically in shouting distance from each other), as his ebullient personality and flawless customer service will keep you coming back for more.

Updated to add: We visited Adam Gindi today in Pandora, and the boutique is looking great!

Now open at 1284 Broadway just south of 34th Street

Kate Upton: the New Face of #ExpressJeans

Looking gorgeous representing the new collection of Express jeans? Kate Upton. A brand ambassador match made in heaven, Kate is adorable in this video. While all new brand ambassadors talk about how they have always loved the brand, I totally see a pre-fame Kate Upton regularly shopping Express.

Follow @expressrunway on Instagram for some behind-the-scenes shots of Kate (below), and RSVP here for tomorrow evening's Express and Vogue event, "A Date with Denim and Kate with Kate."

Don't forget, 34th Street shoppers: we've got two Express stores in the 34th Street District. So if you can't make tomorrow night's Times Square event, look for Express's new denim collection in one of the 34th Street stores.

David Beckham Bodywear: New H&M Ads

If you like your guys scruffy, you're going to love the new David Beckham for H&M ads. He's perfected the "just rolled out of bed" style and his hair looks a lot more brunette than blonde. Which means he's right up my alley: scruffy brunettes are my thing.

 The scruffy brunette I buy underwear for is not a fan of snug briefs or boxers, but loves the Beckham longer shorts and long underwear options, so we'll be shopping a lot of this new collection. It launches online and in stores on August 21, 2014, and includes new patterns such as classic blue check.

Patriotic Flip-Flops at Payless

While the #USA vs #BEL game goes into extra-time, we are here to post some patriotic flip-flops from Payless to give us USA fans the edge. And the 4th of July is right around the corner, too.

Or perhaps you prefer slip-ons?

Unfortunately, Belgium just scored, so the flip flops aren't working, dammit. Go, USA!
