All white after Labor Day? Oh, yeah! Earlier this week, Solange arrived at BET's "106 & Park" dressed in a 10 Crosby Derek Lam white blouse and trousers from the brand’s Resort 2014 collection that we at HelloBeautiful are absolutely loving. The fashionista/singer paired a loose white sweatshirt with crisp wide leg trousers and topped it off with a hot pink pouty lip and matching mani. Fab!

Update your case to one of these cute tech holders.

The new iPhone 5s (and its little sister, the candy-colored, more affordable 5c) are out today. Yay! (Remember how the crew at Burberry got to play with the 5s early, lucky ducks.) Forget that secret agent fingerprint sensor and the superfancy camera, it's the new model's gorgeously luxe metallic backing that's really catching my eye. Call me a sucker for décor, but I'm also excited for the opportunity to update the case that held my Neolithic period iPhone to one of these cute tech holders.

Called “RTR Plus,” the line features more than 40 styles that are available in larger sizes, from 14 to 22, for a rental price between $50 and $200, states New York Business Journal. Within the new collection customers will find additional styles from already-existing designers like Adrianna Papell, as well as exclusive plus-size collections made for RTR.

File this under "why didn't I think of it first and make enough to buy my own private island." As we reported a few months ago, 3floz.com, the website that found its niche selling airport-size luxury beauty products, is now taking a more direct approach by placing vending machines (packed with stuff like SuperSmile Powdered Mouthrinse and Serge Normant shampoos) in airports such as JFK in New York City and McCarran International in Las Vegas. They plan to launch in at least 125 more locations by the end of 2014.
