News of the Day:

+ If you suffer from chronic indecisiveness, Instagram's new feature will make your life considerably easier. You can now post "polls" on your Instagram story that allow your followers to make a choice for you, with results updating in real time. So, if you're trying to decide what to eat for dinner or you want to know which dress looks better on you, your friends and followers are there to help you out.

+ Rihanna just teased a brand-new pair of collegiate-themed Fenty x Puma slides on Instagram, and they're amazing. Available in three colors, the shoes are embroidered with the letters "F." and "U." for Fenty University, but it may be a not-so-subtle message to the haters, too. Whatever the case, the slides will be available online tomorrow along with RiRi's whole line of university-themed attire, which you can check out here.

+ In other fashion news, high-end sportswear label The Fan is back with an Autumn/Winter '17 collection inspired by '90s princess and icon Aaliyah. The pieces are an homage to the singer, who the brand says influenced not only the music world but also the fashion world with her sweet and sexy style. The line features exclusive airbrushed art on outerwear, tees, and more and you can shop the collection today here

+ Surprise! Kehlani just dropped a brand-new song, and it'll make you miss those warm summer nights. Aptly titled "Honey," Kehlani warmly sings about that special lady in her life, and it's got us all in our feelings. Stream it, below.

+ If you weren't already excited about all the holiday makeup dropping, Anastasia Beverly Hills' new eyeshadow palette will definitely change your mind. Retailing for $42, the Prism Palette is a limited-edition collection of 14 warm-toned eyeshadows available in matte, metallic, and glitter shades. Check it out here and below.

Deal of the Day:

Bing Bang Jewelry is hosting a sample sale at their NYC store from October 5 to 7, and the deals are insane. The steals this week include free gifts with purchase, like midi or knuckle rings for purchases over $50, as well as 40 percent off all rose gold stud earrings and 75 percent off select archive, sample, and current styles. The pieces are sure to go fast, so make sure to check out the Division Street store before it's too late.
