Cheers to the weekend, y'all.

If there's one thing we're sure of, it's that Willow Smith isn't afraid to make a statement. The 14-year-old did that and then some for her cover story on i-D magazine's prefall 2015 "coming of age" issue, where she discussed typical teen topics such as the universe's feminine energy and the banality of good and evil.

Love them or hate them, there's no denying that Ugg boots have had a powerful impact on fashion. But the shearling and suede boots are looking to get a bit more sophisticated with a new collection, "Classic Luxe" which debuts with supermodel Carolyn Murphy as its face. The sleeker, more sophisticated and refined collection features two styles which vary in color and height and range from $245 to $295. [WWD]

After announcing back in April that it would be transforming into an e-commerce site, Style.com released letter from editor Nicole Phelps with regards to the impending changes. Phelps outlined that the site's 15-years of runway archives would be headed to VogueRunway.com, which will also include opinion pieces from top voices in the industry. With some readers voicing their sadness over the end of an era, Phelps also encouraged fans of Style.com to make the move to VogueRunway.com and invited feedback from the site's many followers.

Abercrombie and Fitch is the latest retailer to reverse its use of on-call shifts after a lawsuit against Victoria's Secret alleged that the practice is illegal. The controversial policy forces employees to call the store two to three hours prior to the scheduled shift and ask a manager whether or not the store is busy enough to require their services. If they are not needed, employees are not paid. Abercrombie revealed their decision Tuesday after having received a letter from the New York State Attorney General's office in April inquiring about the company's practices. One small step for Abercrombie, one giant leap for retail workers. [BuzzFeed]
