ikeabag1
It’s been years since I’ve stepped foot into an Ikea. I’m sure it’s because at some point in my twenties, I finally swore off ever having to assemble another dresser with a hex key again.

You might as well go ahead and bookmark 24 Sèvres. It's the new shopping website by LVMH, and we're predicting that it's going to be a go-to for street-style stars. If you're not familiar with LVMH, the luxury goods company owns brands across several categories, from wine to cosmetics. But most importantly, it's home to some of our favorite fashion houses that are always ahead of the trends—think Louis Vuitton, Dior, Givenchy, and Fendi. This is a major move, especially since several prestigious labels like Céline don't even have online shopping on their websites. 24 Sèvres will carry over 150 lust-worthy brands, including Prada, Gucci, and Maison Margiela. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until June 6 to see exactly what will be...

Well, if Madeline was going to wear Draper James, it would definitely be the brand-new capsule collection, exclusive to Net-a-Porter.
