Gone but not forgotten, Loehmann’s is making a comeback despite its physical store closing and the bankruptcy issues with a new website! We can expect the same designer deals but the company is adding in millennial friendly pieces from brands like Steve Madden, Rachel Zoe and Jeffrey Campbell. The site will even offer monthly payment plans. [SHEFinds]

Just so you know, designer Christopher Kane doesn’t have time to read. He didn’t read as a kid, and he definitely doesn’t now. “I still don’t read,” the London-based designer said. “I wish I was that kind of person, but I’m just not. I’m really impatient. I like the impact of the visual. Growing up, I liked TV.” [Style.com]

Zac Posen is chatting with Zappos Couture’s Andre Leon Talley to explore his definition of elegance. Posen designs with this idea in mind to celebrate the classic beauty of women. Glenn Close, Sofia Vergara, Claire Danes and Michelle Obama all fit the bill. [Zee Cee]

Men wear short shorts. In an instance of men borrowing from the gals, men’s inseams are shrinking as low as five inches. “If men’s shorts were a glacier in Greenland, scientist would be freaking out.” Does it matter that we’re freaking out? [The Cut]

Today, Toms has officially launched their animal initiative on the brand’s site! Sparked by Heather Mycoskie’s passion and love for animals (wife of TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie), the TOMS Animal Initiative is a series of partnerships planned to conserve and protect animals. The program will raise funds for different animals each year, all selected by Heather, TOMS’ Chief Animal Lover. The first iteration of the TOMS Animal Initiative helps support mountain gorillas in the Democratic Republic of Congo, who are threatened by poachers and habitat destruction. These Earthwise Classics feature Virunga’s logo, an embroidered version of one of the mountain gorillas the initiative is fighting to save. The TOMS Animal Initiative + Virunga National Park collection is available today on TOMS.com for $42 – $48 for Kids and $64 for Men and Women. [GLAM Inbox]
