- Erin Fetherston's floaty, bubblegum frocks are now shoppable in her brand-new online store. Browse her spring sale section for deals like this sequin striped tank dress for $177. While you're there, check out Fetherston's vintage auction, featuring items culled from her own closet.
- Designers are slowly unveiling their Resort 2013 collections. Our favorite so far? Thakoon's fitted shorts suits and breezy sundresses in fun sorbet hues. View them all here.
- One collection you won't find on that list: Kate Spade. Her resort looks are being released a few at a time on exclusive brand stylist Brad Goreski's Tumblr.
