Greetings from Hong Kong

A few key members of our creative team were in Hong Kong last week for Art Basel—soaking up culture, gathering inspiration, and snapping photos all the while. The pics here only represent the best of day 1, shot by graphic designer Gloria Chen (that’s her above, on the right). Keep checking back for more of our team’s Hong Kong Instagram journal as they share the sights.

ICC Tower, Hong Kong’s tallest building at 118 floors | “Peter’s hair, day 1.”

Artful store display | “Lan Kwai Fong, aka nightlife heaven.”

“Healthy yogurt.” | Coach store at night

Cute nail salon | “Note to the mailman.”

“Clean and simple.” | Eye-catching Jason Wu display

“Hong Kong subway system.” | “Pattern.”

“The Pedder Building—where art meets fashion.” | “Where is the hair?”

“Hong Kong street fashion with our host for the night.”

Rebecca Minkoff Takes Over Our Instagram

In case you missed it yesterday, the lovely Rebecca Minkoff took our Instagram account hostage (we didn’t mind!) to share what it’s like to spend a day in her shoes (these fabulous ‘Matty’ Sandals in black, to be exact). For more behind-the-scenes, follow her on Instagram @rebeccaminkoff.

Who should we hand our @Nordstrom reins over to next?


Snapshots from Milan Fashion Week

We’re loving the behind-the-scenes Instagram action from our favorite Italian brands. Check out the latest shots from Missoni, Roberto Cavalli and Gucci.

Follow Friday: Cyber-Stalking Stacey Bendet

Many fashion designers have Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profiles, but few actually update the account themselves. This is far from the case with Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia. The New-York-based designer and self-professed girly-girl is one of the most prolific Tweeters on our feed, posting outfit shots, behind-the-scenes bits and hilarious anecdotes, often more than a dozen times a day. We’ve culled some of our favorite pictures and status updates from her @alice_olivia page (and now-retired @staceybendet account).

“Note to self: massive # of bobby pins can set off airport security and no they don’t care about your hair.”

“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

“Bubble gum is meant to go with champagne!”

“Ok I’m definitely the only one here in leopard tights and a leather Tshirt #juryduty”

“i just love dressing a woman like a woman.”

“Mommy why do you dye your hair? Well because I like it black Why mommy Well I guess because I’m weird! Oh! Ok!”

“Half asleep getting massage + feel little fingers poking my nose “mommy can you breathe with your face in there” not w/fingers up my nose…”

“Follow your dreams especially when they involve dressing up! ‪#girladvice‬”
