Billy Reid officially launched the new BillyReid.com website yesterday and it’s much sleeker than ever. The updated site now features free shipping both ways in the U.S., revamped sizing charts, and Live Chat available during service hours and Saturdays. How cool is that?
In addition to a more efficient shopping experience, the site offers new arrivals from men’s and women’s ready-to-wear FW15 collections. Standout styles are highlighted through editorial images, shot by photographer, Steven Perrilloux, at The Rosenbaum House in the idyllic small town of Florence, Alabama, where Billy Reid is also based. There’s a denim collection for the guys as well, featuring some great classic pieces in nice washes. Check it out!

Coachella was a whirlwind as usual. It ended just as fast as it happened and I’m already having withdraws. Friday started off by checking into the house I rented, which was a first for me and definitely a MUST from here on out. We stayed in a gorgeous mid-century modern home equipped with a pool in case any of the parties didn’t pan out.
