It’s no secret that J.Crew has been struggling to make customers happy recently. In a conference call to analysts yesterday, CEO Mickey Drexler announced the company would be focusing more on their “heritage” items like the ballet flats, the Jackie cardigans, the Regent blazers and cashmere, plus washed shirts and denim.
According to WWD, the new delivery is set to hit store floors on September 14. “Entering fall, we feel good about the assortments in stores and online, which reflect more emphasis on the key product categories that our customers love J. Crew for,” Drexler said. “At the same time, our team has taken a hard look at the business and made changes to drive greater efficiency and profitability. We’re focused on our performance in the second half of the year and positioning the business for sustained growth.”
J.Crew will also not be putting so much attention on J.Crew Collection products, which has been their focus over the past few years to increase press attention and visibility to J.Crew’s creative director Jenna Lyons. Drexler did stress, however, “calibration of product, not a change in direction.”
Well, this is exciting!
Cleaning a shower or bathtub drain that’s clogged with hair is probably one of the grossest things to do. Unfortunately, it’s inevitable if you have long hair. Having a plumber fix the problem costs a decent amount of money and doing it yourself is definitely not a ideal option. Thankfully, there’s a genius product available called DrainWig that helps prevent clogged drains.
Okay, I have to admit that I have serious FOMO when I think about Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence‘s newfound friendship. They jet ski together, write screenplays together and now they just danced on top of Billy Joel’s piano together. Is this relationship even real life?! Last night the BFF’s joined Billy Joel on stage at his concert in Chicago. I’m so jealous.

Whether you’re hosting a holiday, throwing a dinner party or having weekend guests for the first time, welcoming visitors into your home is an exciting–and nerve wracking–time. Instead of panicking, check out our 11 tips for getting your home in host-worthy condition.
1. Ask about dietary restrictions. Many people have gluten, dairy, nut, etc. allergies, so before you stock the fridge or plan the menu, be sure to ask everyone if they have any dietary restrictions that need to be taken into consideration.
2. Do you have a pet? Again, many people have allergies to dogs or cats, so you should let everyone know beforehand if you have a furry friend in the house.
3. Clean! Of course, you want to make sure your home is glowing before your guests arrive, paying special attention to the bathroom (is there anything grosser than a dirty bathroom?) and kitchen (where you’ll be prepping everyone’s food!). Don’t have time? Consider hiring a cleaning person to do a deep clean of these areas, and then you can straighten out the rest of your home on your own.
4. Ready the bathroom. Aside from making sure it’s clean, you’ll want to have an extra supply of toilet paper, clean towels and anything else guests might need.
5. Stock up in the kitchen. If you’re having overnight guests, make sure you buy plenty of their favorite foods and snacks, as well as coffee and tea for the morning.
6. Think about seating. Before you invite 20 people to Thanksgiving dinner, make sure you actually have enough room to seat everyone comfortably. If not, is there anything you can do to prep your home for this many people, such as buying a folding table and some chairs to set up in another room? Or if it’s warm enough to go outside, consider doing that.
7. Set the table in advance. Don’t wait until the day of your event to set the table. Instead, do it the night before so you have one less thing to do on the big day.
8. Prepare a guest area. If you have any friends or family staying with you, make sure they have a comfy place to sleep. If you have a guest room, great! If not, you might want to consider letting them stay in your bedroom, or investing in a pull-out sofa or a quality air mattress.
9. Find a place for coat and bags. If there isn’t enough room in a closet to hang up coats, then designate a specific area—like your bed—so that guests can lay these items down neatly until it’s time to go.
10. Make things pretty. Put out some vases with fresh flowers, lighting a few candles and playing soft music–all of these simple touches are always appreciated by guests.
11. Stay calm. It’s easy to freak out in the days and hours leading up to hosting—especially if it’s your first time. Just remember if you have great food, keep the wine flowing and are a gracious host, everyone will surely have a good time.
If you haven’t updated your Instagram app, you should do it right now. Instagram’s newest photo feature allows you to upload portrait and landscape photos and videos, no longer forcing you to use the square format. While Instagram says the “square format has been and always will be part of who we are,” they want users to be able to share moments without having to chop off parts of their pictures.
When you share a portrait or landscape photo, it will appear that way in your feed. However, on your profile to maintain “clean feel of your profile grid,” your photos will be a center-cropped square. Also, all Instagram filers will now be available for both photos and videos.
1. Never post more than three pictures in a day. The only exceptions to this rule is if it’s Fashion Week, your birthday or an amazing vacation.
2. Don’t use more than four hashtags per picture.
3. Selfies should only be taken in two instances: 1. if you work in Fashion and want to show off a cool outfit and 2. if no one is available to take a picture of you in an awesome place.

If you wear eyeglasses every day then you know they can get really dirty. I take pretty good care of my glasses, yet I can never get them fully clean. There are so many little crevices in glasses where dirt and makeup and whatever else gets trapped inside. The easiest part to clean on glasses is the lenses and even those get streaky and gross. Thankfully, there's a really easy way to clean eyeglasses and it only requires one thing. Before I get into how to clean your glasses, please note you should never clean your lenses with a t-shirt! There is so much dust trapped in a t-shirt and dust can easily scratch your lenses. Opt for a microfiber cloth or the method below. How To Properly Clean Eyeglasses: 1. Run your glasses under warm water. 2. Use a drop of dish soap and use your fingers to create a lather on your glasses. Make sure you clean your frames too and not just your lenses. 3. Rinse off the dish soap with warm water. 4. Use a cotton cloth or paper towel to dry off your glasses. That's it! Clean them as often as you need to.

I don't even particularly like cats, but this ring? I need it! Isn't it the cutest thing you've ever seen? It's by a Brooklyn-based jewelry company called Catbird and as you may have imagined, it already has a cult following including tons of celebs and style bloggers. Unsurprisingly, it's blowing up Instagram, too! (Check it out here, here and here.) Cool-factor aside, I love this brand--and this ring especially--because it's not crazy expensive. $32 is totally reasonable; cheap enough, in fact, to buy multiples! See how the rings look on a finger in the video below, then buy a bunch!Be sure to check out fall must-haves from Old Navy for $50 or less, the best plaid dresses for fall and new uses for your lint roller.

Stocking a home bar can be a little intimidating, especially if you've just moved into your first house or apartment. There are key items that every home bar needs in order to be useful. It's important to keep in mind that your home bar will not be fully stocked right from the start. Stocking a bar costs money, so take things slow and start off with the essentials. Here are the five main things you should always have on hand for your home bar. 1. Glassware. You can't use any old glass for every single cocktail. Certain drinks require certain types of glasses. Start off with martini glasses, rocks glasses, red and white wine glasses, beer mugs/pint glasses and tall glasses.8 bachelorette party ideas that don't involve alcohol and try these 5 recipes for skinny cocktails!
