By Melissa Goldstein on
(Photos: Need Supply Co.)Let's be honest: sometimes a girl has so much to carry that one shoulder strap won't suffice (without the threat of throwing off said girl's alignment, thereby rendering all of those hot yoga classes totally meaningless).  In those weight-baring times, a backpack is a girl's best friend, yet finding a backpack worthy of said girl's fashion-forwardness and overall sartorial excellence is not always the easiest task. Enter: these neutral patent leather numbers by LA...Read Full Story

By Simona Rabinovitch on

The shoot took place on the LA beach, and Zooey was dressed for the occasion. We love the summery, cheerful feel of the yellow and white color palette, jazzed up with a pale pink zing of a belt. Good for her: she knows what she likes, and sticks to it. Whether Zooey is in costume or...Read Full Story
