Jessica Simpson Enters the Diamond Biz
Jessica Simpson will expand her billion dollar retail empire to include a line of fine diamond jewelry at Zales.

Earlier this month, Zales shared it would also be partnering with designer Vera Wang for a line of bridal jewelry. Head to Thread NY for more info.

Although H&M has pushed back the launch of its U.S. e-commerce site until spring 2012, they've offered a small consolation in the form of an online pop-up shop. Today, 20 pieces from the Fall 2011 collection are being sold on Elle.com, though supplies are very limited and many pieces have already sold out. Missed your chance to shop? Fret not. All the pieces that were sold online will be available in H&M stores this Thursday.
