Serious Nostalgia: Abercrombie & Fitch

Serious Nostalgia: Abercrombie & Fitch

When I heard that infamous Abercrombie & Fitch had undergone a serious rebranding, I had to see it for myself.  Abercrombie was cool in elementary and middle school (Hello LFO!,) but it lost its luster once it became the overpriced graphic tee, overly pungent perfume scented distressed denim hub. In an attempt to refresh the brand they hired an exec from J. Crew, a designer from Club Monaco, and deleted their entire Instagram in an attempt to “wipe the slate clean.”

Sales are still down according to WWD and the WSJ, but at least A&F has attempted to make the brand more inclusive on multiple levels–something we need to see more of as of late.

I picked out a few pieces that I think will transition well from summer to spring, and I actually purchased a few that I thought would pack well for my upcoming trips to Panama City and Bocas del Toro.

What do you think of the rebranding efforts?

Mules and Slides

Mules and Slides

 

I just cannot get enough of these fun shoes!  They remind me of growing up in the 90’s and when my friend, Kelly, with the most fashionable and up to trend mom, started wearing red clogs to 2nd grade.  I thought they were so strange looking, but still so fun and made quite the statement.

Clogs are another story, but I think Mules and Slides are the perfect shoe for transitioning to spring.  With pearls, florals, tassels, bows and appliqué to choose from, there is a mule or slide out there for everyone.  Here are a few I found online, from different retailers and at different price points, that I absolutely love!  Which one is your favorite?
