While trailing around this week-end we stumbled upon Chance, the brainchild of Julia Leach. A summer pop-up boutique anchored on the image of the classic striped boatneck and mostly the stylish, classic ocean side nonchalence  it inspires. The white walled boutique stands as a ray of sunlight filled with fun discoveries and an attention to detail that makes us swoon. On the next page a peek at a few pieces available at their online shop however, in the spirit of discovery and taking chances, this is a must visit! Photography by Chris Shipman

Girls Got Kicks Book: Coming Soon!!!

lori backintheday Girls Got Kicks Book: Coming Soon!!!

GIRLS GOT KICKS is the first ever photo documentary of badass females, told from a unique angle: their passion for sneakers. GIRLS GOT KICKS documents a movement of women from all over the globe, a growing community brought together by their passion for sneakers. Their stories are as diverse and colorful as their ever-growing collections of footwear, and now GIRLS GOT KICKS brings them together in a book chock full of bold photos, interviews and short essays. More than a love story about shoes, the book documents how these sneaker lovers push beyond stereotypes for girls and women, using kicks to be both athletic and sexy, hip and tomboyish, grown and youthful, as they define who they are—and who women can be—on their own terms.

The Essentials Of Fabulous Book

essentials of fabulous1

When I first read the title of this book, I figured that it would be another self help of the fake-it-til-you-make-it kind , or think you’re better than everyone, be aggressive, see opportunities to get yourself ahead etc. How far was I from the truth! In a beautiful book (seriously the pages have this soft texture illustrated with watercolors by Susan Sagar, and sets of single bright color pages of notes in between), Ellen Lubin-Sherman illustrates being fabulous as that genuine, warmth you feel when you have encountered something or someone amazing:

“…The people who loom large in our minds, whose high spirits bring the oxygen back into the room, whose playful natures inspire us to have more fun and who can wind a few strands of apparent junk around their necks and still look mind -bogglingly stunning- they are unforgettable.”

Let me say that as a reader of Highsnobette, you’re already fabulous because you know you’re part of a special community of women who “get it.” However, what Lubin- Sherman does so well is  take you to a place of heightened fabulousness that goes beyond appearances into topics like ”giving good text” (I was all over that one) or even resurrecting the stylish art of the little just because handwritten note. In a nutshell what compels about The Essentials Of  Fabulous is that it’s not about a technique, a gimmick, a story you’re telling the world  about you, that you do not even believe yourself. It’s the opposite. The honesty of being kind, genuine with no hidden agenda or pretense and having a whole lot of fun while living it!  A book to have and to definitely give  The Essentials of Fabulous . Slides on the next page.

3DBreastBook 3DD Breast Book

No abstract concept going on here…as the website reads in describing “3DD,” “Yeah it is not that much more complicated than that. 3DD is a simple concept and one that we hope you enjoy as much as we do. So grab a pair of glasses and enjoy.” If you don’t want to invest in the book, you can give your email and receive a daily “3DD” breast each day. How nice!

Jay ZDecoded Late Last Night Link Ups

Howard Stern conducts a fascinating, hour-long  interview with Jay-Z, in which he discusses his upbringing, choosing Alicia Keyes over Mary Blige for “Empire State Of Mind,” meeting Rhianna for the first time and his views on the Kanye/Taylor Swift dust up, plus tons more, all in the name of promoting his book, “Decoded” (cover image above), which went on sale today. –Youraudiofix

The recession recedes to the rear view mirror with Urban Outfitters and Burberry, among others, reporting kick-ass quarters.–CNBC
