Two things:
1) H&M just launched their new fall collection today and it’s awesome. I still think they are one of the best in the world at offering high fashion at affordable prices.
2) I just discovered H&M’s dressing room app, which lets you layer clothes together, choose a model that looks like you, etc. I’m a big fan of mismatched + layered clothing, but let me tell you, it’s truly an art. This app makes experimenting much easier for those likeminded as me.
Note: Due to high web traffic w/the launch of their new line, the site has crashed on me twice already. Be prepared.

Wait a second, Diane von Furstenberg has a Home line of bedding and dishware?! Have I been living under a rock?!
Why isn’t this on every bride’s registry? If it’s not now, it will be. Gentlemen, don’t ask questions - just let your lady have her way on this one.

A lot of you got just as excited as I did about the iNecklace I posted yesterday. Unfortunately, it was a women’s product, leaving all of you guys left with nothing but girlfriend/wife gift inspiration.
BUT, GUESS WHAT? You dudes are in luck, too!
A reader just sent me a link to the iCufflinks. Genius, I tell you. Pure, genius.
Geek couple apparel FTW.

DIY Fabric Button Earrings Tutorial
I about died when I realized how easy it was to create personalized earrings out of buttons. (If you haven’t noticed yet, I tend to swoon over any normal product that can be transformed into something more interesting.) 
I made these button earrings as thank you gifts for a few of the wonderful women who planned my bridal shower a couple of months ago. The best part was that it only cost me about $15! (Well, and time, of course.) To add a “meaningful touch”, I even used some extra tulle that came with my wedding dress to cover the fabric and add to the earrings. You can do the same thing with any fabric that speaks to you. Here’s the step-by-step process:
Materials:
1) Dritz Aluminum Cover Button Kits-Size 30 3/4 Inch  ($5) - The 3/4” is just what I used - you can get whatever size you want.
2) Fabric of your selection (<$5) - I recommend using fabric swatches if you don’t have any on hand - they are cheap and you don’t need much anyway. Also, use a thin-ish fabric like cotton or satin (no leather, etc) or it will be much more difficult to get your button to clasp. 
3) Scissors - hopefully, you already have these :)
4) Steel Glue On Earring Posts ($3)
5) Super Glue ($3)
6) Pen or pencil - Again, you should have these.
Are you ready for how easy this is? Brace yourself…
1) Prep your buttons by removing the hook on the back. I found that I could just twist it a lot and it would eventually come off. You could also use wire cutters or scissors.
2) With a pencil, draw circles on your fabric that extend about 3/4” wider than the diameter of your button. So, if you use the 3/4” button, measure a 1 1/2” diameter circle. I found a water bottle cap that was about the right size to stencil around - just look around your kitchen for something round - I’m sure you’ll find a good stencil. Sizes are approximate.
3) Cut out the circles from your fabric.
4) Center the fabric over the top (rounded side) of your button and press down into your button cover tool. (There are illustrated instructions for doing this on the box of the button cover kit.)
5) Wrap the leftover edges of fabric on the backside of the button, then push the button bottom into place. (You should still be using the button cover tool.) Your covered button has been made!
6) To make into earrings, just glue the earring posts onto the back of your button. 
7) If giving as a gift, you can make a cute earring holder like the one featured above. I used cardstock, printed a message (I couldn’t resist the “Cute as a button” line), cut and glued a strip of burlap, then poked the button earrings through. Finally, I tied a bow with twine. So simple!
Don’t you just love crafts that are both beautiful and simple?
PS: If you are a guy reading this and you have a girlfriend/wife/sister/mom/grandma (you get my point), I swear she will go absolutely CRAZY if you make her these. It is SO EASY and takes 10 minutes. Score some points, dude :)

Fall&#8217;s Best Unusual (But Trendy) Coats for Men and Women
The end of Labor Day signals the beginning of fall, which happens to be my favorite season. It also means that it&#8217;s time to go coat shopping! Now, I love a classic trench and pea coat, but I also love coats with something unusual about them - something that makes them stick out among the rest, while still being trendy.
Thus, I present to you my favorite coat finds for fall.
WOMEN
Would you be Pine? Coat - $219.99 - I love the asymmetric zip and woodlands-esque collar of this coat. The seams are also very flattering.
Pumpkin Chocolate Bar Jacket - $117.99 - The color, the collar, the rotated pockets. It&#8217;s an outdoorsy jacket gone chic.
Wonderland Flared Coat - £190.00 - This could be a dress, it&#8217;s so classy and cute. I also love the offset buttons. I&#8217;m in love.
Eastward Dress Coat - $288.00 - Adorable color and design, with 3/4 sleeves. I still haven&#8217;t tried a 3/4 sleeved coat, but would be curious to know what you guys think of them. 
Forever Unique Dress Coat - $150.00 - Stylish, chic, and warm. 
Striped Collarless Trench - $137.00 - I am obsessed with anything striped, thus this coat immediately called to me. The nautical trend continues into fall!
Josie Jacket - $120.00 - The beauty of this coat is that it can be worn several ways. Click on the link to see.
Yumi Bow Collar Coat - $82.00 - Just plain cute.
Betsy Johnson Corset Coat - $309.00 - One of my personal favorites (I bought it), this coat is very structured and the skirted bottom flatters exactly where your body needs it to.
Coat With Fold Over Collar - $155.00 - This coat looks super warm and trendy all at once. The fold over collar adds a special pop.
MEN
Lined Cameraman Jacket - $1559.00 - While not the most affordable, I&#8217;m absolutely in love with the navy/argyle tweed combo. It also has a &#8220;US military clasp&#8221; on it to make it extra manly.
Targhee Full Zip Fleece - $109.00 - A stunning coat for a chilly or windy day. I love the pop of color on the zippers. Other colors available.
Bournemouth Duffle Coat - $250.00 - A more traditional men&#8217;s coat, but has a fun lining. I think it&#8217;s very stylish for the season.
Lookout Coat - $555.00 - My eye was immediately drawn to the asymmetric buttons. Definitely a stand-out design, done in a classy way.
Boone Parka - $575.00 - Pops of color in the drawstring and a fun lining make this coat different.
Checked Lined 4PCKT - $475.00 - I really love the color and flannel lining of this coat.
Color Block Cagoule - $247.00 - For the nautical prep. Great for a day outside or on the water.
Twill Mix and Match Varsity - $92.00 - I almost didn&#8217;t post this one because you have to really be able to rock this coat if you wear it. Definitely for the trendier guys.
I&#8217;d love your feedback on which of these coats you like the most. Hit me up in the comments or shoot an email: britmorin@gmail.com.

I hate - let me repeat, HATE - getting catalogs in the mail. Why? Because most of the time, they aren&#8217;t catalogs I like, meaning that I just recycle them without ever glancing through them. Plus, even if I did want to buy an item, I would have to open up my laptop, search for it, add it to a cart, etc. It just adds a step to the process, which is not my style as I&#8217;m all about simplicity and efficiency.
Does this mean I hate catalogs in general? Absolutely not. In fact, as you can tell by my blog, I really love discovering new products out on the market. And like most women, frankly I just love online shopping as well as looking at photos all day.
That&#8217;s why I just downloaded a new iPad app from Google called Google Catalogs. It&#8217;s sort of like a digital magazine rack, but for catalogs. And they have a ton of my favorites already: Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, Patagonia, Design Within Reach, etc. I also love how the catalogs don&#8217;t actually look like catalogs, but instead like full-screen photographs that enable you to click on items to get more info or buy. It&#8217;s the perfect commerce browsing experience.
You can download Google Catalogs from the app store for free. I&#8217;d love to hear what you think of it! Leave a note in the comments or find me on Twitter.

Does this mean I hate catalogs in general? Absolutely not. In fact, as you can tell by my blog, I really love discovering new products out on the market. And like most women, frankly I just love online shopping as well as looking at photos all day.

That’s why I just downloaded a new iPad app from Google called Google Catalogs. It’s sort of like a digital magazine rack, but for catalogs. And they have a ton of my favorites already: Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, Patagonia, Design Within Reach, etc. I also love how the catalogs don’t actually look like catalogs, but instead like full-screen photographs that enable you to click on items to get more info or buy. It’s the perfect commerce browsing experience.

You can download Google Catalogs from the app store for free. I’d love to hear what you think of it! Leave a note in the comments or find me on Twitter.
