Shop Rihanna’s Signature Sock Styles at Shopping Blitz

Stance

Along with being an eight-time Grammy Award winner and the top selling digital artist of all time, Rihanna is a style icon who recently teamed up with Stance Socks to create her own line of signature socks. Rihanna, who is notorious for her edgy streetwear and glamorous red carpet looks, is Stance’s latest spokesperson – or “Punk and Poet” as the brand likes to call it – and contributing creative director. Rihanna’s partnership with Stance is sure to transform socks from an everyday essential we don’t think about into a fashion accessory we can’t live without.

To celebrate the collaboration, Stance Socks has launched a limited-edition “Murder Rih Wrote” collection of crew-cut and over-the-knee socks for men and women, which are available at Shopping Blitz.  The socks display “Murder Rih Wrote” in newsprint typography and feature horror movie poster art. Several other collections from Rihanna are still in the works, and the label plans to release 18 more styles in September and a holiday collection in November.

Candy Harris, the vice president of the Stance Socks women’s division, spoke to Vogue about the collaboration:

“I know a lot of people are probably saying ‘Why socks?’ And that’s really the beauty of it,” Harris said, “and that’s why Rihanna’s perfect, because she’s constantly innovating and looking to see what’s next. Socks are not really a trend; they’re a fashion staple.”

If anyone can make socks a fashion accessory to think about, it’s definitely Rihanna. Just by looking at the first collection, you can tell that Rihanna’s sock styles are certainly an exciting and bold accessory that can transform any ordinary outfit into a fashion statement.

Stay tuned for Rihanna’s soon-to-be-released collections, and in the meantime, visit ShoppingBlitz.com to shop for clothes and Stance socks online. Check back at ShoppingBlitz.com/brands/stance next month to view her other great collections.

Trend Watch: Heavy Metals

www.pinterest.comWhat better way to polish off an outfit this season than with trendy metallic accessories? You can start off small – add a bronze purse or some classic boat shoes to compliment your look. You can even snag some oxfords and pair them with dark denim or leggings while you await the warmer weather. A casual lunch date with mom can be done in style in a pair of beautiful rose gold sandals. Mix and match with denim, florals or neutral palettes to get the perfect balance of casual and dressy. For date night pair your favorite LBD (little black dress) with some Franco Sarto heels.  Look out for chrome, copper and your favorite shades of gold to do it big this Spring – and never be outshined.

Our foray into the festival world …

photo (18)This year we are entering the world of vending for music festivals. A lot of us at Shopping Blitz are die-hard music fans, long time associated with the festival scene. So we are very excited to break our cherries at the 9th annual Mountain Jam June 6-9. Our concept is the idea of a funky general store. A place to go if in the excitement you have forgotten or need to replace some key essentials, like your tent (we have all been there), sleeping bag, footwear and especially the all-important toothbrush!Hugh (17)

I say funky because well for one it’s us. And if you have ever met us in person, and we hope you do this weekend, you would know that we are nothing if not funkified! I also say funky because a lot of the products we are bringing were made to have fun in. From novelty hats, wigs and accessories we have you covered for an all out rager! Suffice it to say we are excited and nervous and ready to get up to Hunter Mountain! If you are coming we hope to see you there. If you are on fence or are hearing about the festival for the first time check out the lineup and let the music sway you!

Brands we are featuring include Life is Good, Sanuk, Havaianas, SmartWool, Violight, Oofos, Lole, Bula, Salomon, Global Vision Eyewear & more!
