A true shoe revolution is beginning – courtesy of innovative new brand – One Clique. We were just introduced to this brilliant new collection and are already floored, an assortment of individual uppers and heels allows YOU to be the designer…mixing & matching everything from chunky gold platforms and edgy studded straps to sleek cork wedges and luxe python peep-toes, resulting in hundreds (literally) of combinations for just a few bucks. You can choose to start with a one upper/two heel set starting at just $69.99, immediately receiving two pairs of shoes in one shot, or purchase each part on its own so that you can create an entire One Clique collection piece by piece. And as if the genius concept wasn’t fab enough on its own, One Clique has partnered with Kind Campaign to donate a portion of all proceeds to anti-bullying initiatives, celebrating the idea that all girls are welcome. We love AND need it, double whammy. Check out their website now to learn more about the brand and enter their pre-launch contest, design your own shoes for a chance to win a trip to NYC and a special role in their first lookbook campaign.

After months of anticipation, H&M is offering e-commerce to American shoppers. The Swedish retailer already offered online shopping for Austria, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and, of course, Sweden. But despite a strong presence in the United States — recent reports counted 269 H&M stores in the US — the fast-fashion retailer did not offer American online shoppers the chance to order directly on HM.com.
In July, H&M finally confirmed that e-commerce on its US site was imminent, announcing via Twitter that it was coming “in August.” Sure enough, on August 1, H&M launched its “Shop Online.” Ladies, men’s, teens, plus-size and children’s are now available for online purchase, as well as exclusive “online-only” items.
A press release also notes that additional sizes will be available on HM.com, presumably an important development for plus-size shoppers. As we previously reported, women who buy plus-sizes tend to have trouble finding clothing in stores, forcing them to turn online. H&M only offers up to size 14 in most of its brick-and-mortar locations, while many of its e-commerce sites offer up to a size 24. Now those larger sizes will be available to American women, over half of whom buy plus-size clothing.
The H&M press release also states that the Shop Online launch is also the debut of H&M Home, a range of home decor staples and accessories available exclusively via e-commerce.
