The BAE Bulletin: Here’s Where and When to Cop This Week’s Hottest Pieces
Including sparkly sneakers from Nike and PUMA.
The beginning of a month signifies many new starts – in the case of September, it brings a new season and a new school year all at once. And what better way to start off your fall than with stocking up on some of the best pieces that are dropping this week?
On the sneaker front, there’s glitter and sparkles galore with both Nike and PUMA releasing some show-stopping kicks, whilst adidas and New Balance prove that the fall/winter season doesn’t mean you need to adopt a muted autumnal color palette as both brands drop shoes in tones of pink and pastel purple. We also take a look at Vans‘ latest collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld which sees the classic California brand give a Parisian twist to its line of apparel and sneakers. If makeup is more your thing, Urban Decay‘s new mascara will hit the spot – not only is it allegedly “sex-proof,” it comes in color-changing holographic packaging. Browse the drops below and start your fall season in style.
Release Date: September 5
Release Price: $24 USD, available at the Urban Decay web store and in-store
A girl can never have too many tubes of mascara, right? If there’s one that absolutely needs to be added to your ever-growing makeup bag, it’s Urban Decay’s Troublemaker.

If that isn’t enough to sway you, it comes in super-shiny multicolored holographic packaging so both your lashes and your beauty counter will look equally as luscious.

Give your feet the fancy treat they deserve.

Available in two colorways – “Marshmallow” and all-black, the sneaker comprises of a soft suede upper with metallic branding on the lateral side and tongue atop a chunky platform sole. The all-black iteration features tonal black and silver glitter across the toe, whilst “Marshmallow” adds some color to the otherwise toned-down upper with multicolored sparkles adorning the toe cap.

The NMD_R2 silhouette has become increasingly popular, so it seems fitting that the brand is dropping it in another brand new colorway. “Raw Pink” features the same textured upper with a subtle geometric print in an all-over blush tone. It’s contrasted by hits of gray along the sockliner, a black heel tab and outsole and of course, that iconic clean white BOOST midsole. This sneaker is an everyday essential.

New Balance‘s newest 574 silhouette comes in a supple “Thistle” – a pastel lilac tone.

This cozy sneaker is given a contemporary twist on the white midsole which boasts an embossed diamond pattern, making it the ideal sneaker this season for girls on the go.
