Nicki Minaj for H&M’s New 2017 Holiday Campaign

Nicki has clearly been all about her endorsement coins and this holiday season she’s picked up another one as the face of H&M’s 2017 Holiday Campaign.

There’s always magic in the air during the Holidays.” Catch glimpses of H&M’s holiday designs throughout the film, which are available in stores and at hm.com starting November 9.

These new “Gara” Gucci shoes are made for walkin’! The sneaker first seen in Gucci’s Cruise 2018 collection has made its way to possibly kicking Balenciaga’s Triple S out of the top spot. It seems as if designers are having a field day with remixing the old school orthopedic sneaker design. The bulky design features an oversized print of Gucci’s multicolored logo and lettering on its side. Barney’s is hosting “Gaza’s” pre-sale with the price marked at $820. Will you be coping em’?

The Weeknd for H&M’s “Spring Icons”

The Weeknd is definitely on a roll this year! New album, new tour, new videos and most recently a new endorsement deal with H&M. Though The Weeknd doesn’t believe in icons, H&M does and clearly considers him and his influence an iconic one. The collaboration includes pieces that are representative of The Weeknd’s style and how men dress today. Here’s what he had to say about his selections: “When I chose the pieces for Spring Icons Selected by the Weeknd, I was thinking about the way men dress today … It’s about finding the right balance between sharp and casual, with all the details that count.” The collection will be available March 2nd. Until then H&M released this teaser video to hold you over while you wait. Here’s a peak at the selections:

P.O.W.: Can you stand the rain?…Hunter’s Original Clear Smock

I have been screaming that I am so over Summer…and trust me I am over and done with all of it. My edges will now live a longer life with no heat or sweating and I won’t feel like I have to take 20 showers in one day. When I seen this week’s Fall forecast full of rain and 60 no more than 70 degree weather I was elated. Then I realized taking care of business that requires me to get in and out of the car it is not exactly what I bargained for. Of course, with 3 more days of rain left I started my search for the perfect reasonable raincoat, so I can stand the rest of this rain. Quality was most important  for me because a lot of reasonable raincoats ring cheap, cheap, cheap. After a short search I found style, quality, reasonable cost in one raincoat… Hunter’s Original Clear Smock. These raincoats are priced from $162 – $230. See available colors below.
