IDK about you but I am about to be broke AF! Lady Gaga's Love Bravery apparel and accessories collection for Macy's is currently available for purchase online. The range is slated to hit physical Macy's locations on May 9, which is this coming Monday. Gaga and the retailer hosted a launch party at the Herald Square location NYC on May 4 and I'm super stoked about Love Bravery. The collection is full of pouches, patches, pins, shirts, and more, all of which will dress up items you already own. It's a collabo with Elton John, was co-designed by Gaga's stylist Brandon Maxwell and her little sister Natali Germanotta, and a percentage of the profits will be donated to the charities of Gaga and Sir Elton.
It doesn't appear that Gaga designed any of the pieces but there are lots of style-enhancing essentials.
You can add really cute (and affordable) pieces to your wardrobe and passively support good causes. Love Bravery is a limited edition collection that is only available through August. Since there are lots of offerings and you are on a budget, you need to have a game plan regarding what you want to scoop up. I will be the first to admit that narrowing my shopping list down will be a difficult endeavor, since Love Bravery is overflowing with really cute and wearable (and totable) street chic.
Here are 11 essential pieces that you should consider adding to your closet.
Pouch Set, $32, Love Bravery
The black, leather-look set can hold keys, lip glosses, ID, and the essentials. It's incredibly simple chic.
2. Keys For Keys
Piano Clutch, $30, Love Bravery
A piano key clutch? OMG, so cute! You can totally gift this to the musician in your life, especially if you are BFFs with a piano player. If not, who cares?! Rock it yourself. Keys for keys!
3. Coin Purse
Coin Purse, $24, Love Bravery
I am a sucker for heart-shaped things, like this cute, mini coin purse with a chain and interior zipper pocket. Adorbs.
4. Hooded Jacket
K-WAY Hooded Jacket, $59, Love Bravery
I so want this for those cool spring days or slightly chilly, late summer nights.
5. Portable Charger
Portable Powerbank Charger, $24, Love Bravery
OMG, I hate when my phone loses its juice, since I am a power user but I love this portable powerbank. It comes in three cassette designs and I love the juxtaposition of a mobile phone charger, which is a modern form of media, being shaped like an archaic media form! WANT!!!
Logo Tank, $28, Love Bravery
The heart-print tank is totally suitable for wear with destroyed denim shorts, leggings, or skinnies.
7. Sunglasses In Clutch Form
Sunglasses Clutch, $30, Love Bravery
A faux leather clutch shaped like shades? Sign me up. This one is more about the outside than the in, and that's OK.
8. The Wrap
Lady Gaga Wrap, $38, Love Bravery
The multi-purpose wrap can be used as a coverup on the beach or as a layered scarf because #options. There are three styles, including one with piano keys.
9. Crop Top
Crop Top, $28, Love Bravery
Crop tops are a summer essential. This scooped tank version with "Love" on the front and "Bravery" on the bank is on trend.
10. Pins & Patches
Pins & Patches Set, $32, Love Bravery
You can dress up any Love Bravery piece or items you already own with pins and patches. It's a cool, easy, and cheap way to customize a black scarf or a backpack. It's a new form of bedazzling!
Piano Key Backpack, $39, Love Bravery
It's never too soon to start thinking about back to school season! This piano key backpack is so campus-ready and beyond.
These are my 11 fave pieces! There are plenty more. But these deserve your first look!
