The Converse "Winterized" Collection

We all love our tried-and-true classic Converse Chuck Taylor® All Star® , but when Mother Nature starts to dish out that extra frosty weather our way, the Converse “Winterized” Collection packs an extra dose of weatherproof protection.

This more bundled-up collection offers a new spin on your favorite classics this cold-weather season with the help of leather uppers, breathable Thinsulate® protection, and shearling lining (depending on the style).

We also love the extra traction on the outsoles on a few of the Winterized styles, making them perfect for navigating through snowy conditions.

New Brand Spotlight: DDF Skincare

In 1991, renowned New York dermatologist Dr. Howard Sobel founded DDF (Doctor’s Dermatologic Formula) to enable his patients to care for their skin at home. The DDF skin care system is designed with advance protocols targeting one or more of the specific skin concerns. DDF targets root causes with antioxidants to help neutralize surface-free radicals, cleaning formulations to help remove excess sebum, and surface-penetrating hydration to help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier.

For over 20 years, DDF has brought the inspiration of dermatologic methods to skin care. DDF’s focus is on personalization and matching the latest dermatological technology to the individual’s personal skin needs. In Dr. Sobel’s words, “One size most certainly does not fit all.” This is why they’ve developed DermCode™ Skin Analysis, a dermatologist-inspired tool which helps us tailor a “protocol” of products to your particular skin issues.

By combining DermCode technology with leading-edge, dermatologist-approved ingredients such as turmeric, DDF can decode and understand your skin in greater depth. With this knowledge and understanding, you can take your skin to a whole new level. Just as if, in fact, you had your own personal dermatologist.

Maui Jim Spreads the Aloha Spirit to Zappos HQ

2,681 miles. That’s the distance that separates the islands of Hawaii from Las Vegas. But at the beginning of this week, the aloha spirit was only yards away when our friends from Maui Jim dropped by to spread a little Hawaiian love to Zappos HQ.

Aloha Spirit, hula, maui jim, Maui Jim polarized sunglasses, maui jim sunglasses, zappos campus, zappos family, zappos hq

The lifestyle eyewear brand handed out close to 500 Maui Jim blue leis, brochures about their amazing sunglasses and flip-flop bottle opener key chains. They also let Zapponians try on the latest styles of Maui Jim Polarized sunglasses to show off their beautiful color clarity and glare protection.

The best part of the Maui Jim visit, however, was arguably the three beautiful hula dancers they brought along, accompanied by live Polynesian drum beats! They even did some impromptu hula lessons for brave Zappos employees who didn’t mind getting down Hawaiian style in front of co-workers!

Today’s weekend-worthy look is all about being fashion-forward with a sophisticated, uptown twist. The ladylike colorblock coat really adds a refined and glam touch to the black-on-black ensemble. I love how the fringe ankle boots add a carefree movement, while the pop of color on the bag really punctuates this chic look.

Cheers to the weekend!
