Coachella is officially in full swing and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s no secret that this festival brings forth some of the coolest trends for summer fashion, so we’re keeping a lookout for some serious outfit inspo! If you’re lucky enough to attend this year’s festival, we are beyond jealous! So, we’ve kept busy by creating a packing list compiled of all the essentials. Here are the must-haves for your Coachella experience.


Statement Sunnies 

The bright Cali sun will be shining down, so you’ll definitely need the perfect pair of sunglasses! We love to make sunnies a statement part of our outfit, so we always make sure to have several different styles and frame shapes. Our “Santorini” sunnies, shown to the left, are the perfect touch of boho for any look!

Straw Bag

We’re obsessed with the straw bag trend, especially if it incorporates a cute, colorful tassel! If you’re attending a music festival, you’ll obviously need a trendy, yet useful, bag to hold your essentials. Whether you’re looking for a large tote or a smaller cross-body bag, the straw look will go with any summer style!

Grammy Awards 2018 Red Carpet: Our Top Picks

Grammys 2018

If you’re anything like us, you’re still dreaming about the dozens of amazing looks that made appearances on the red carpet during the Grammy Awards last week. When the stars arrived at Madison Square Garden, we were prepared to see the most insanely gorgeous fashion statements yet… and we were definitely not disappointed. And, let’s be honest, the red carpet fashion is totally the best part about the Grammys all together!

So, since we can’t stop thinking about this year’s looks, we decided to make a list of some of our favorites to share them with you! Take a look:

Lady Gaga Grammys 300x300
Hailee Steinfeld Grammys 300x300
Sza Grammys 300x300

We all know that Lady Gaga loves to make a statement, and we expected nothing less than fabulous! She arrived wearing this stunning black lace Armani ensemble, accompanied by Lorraine Schwartz jewelry!

We absolutely loved Hailee Steinfeld in this white Alexandre Vauthier dress, accompanied by those metallic purple thigh-high boots! This is seriously a statement look, and we think she killed it! Obsessed.

Sza brought beauty and grace in her sheer Atelier Versace dress! We just cannot get over the details of the bodice and those dramatic sleeves! Simply stunning.

Chrissy Teigen Grammys 300x300
Cardi B Grammys 300x300
Lana Del Ray 300x300

Leave it to Chrissy Teigen to make a baby bump look chic! Wearing this shimmering silver Yanina Couture, she owned the red carpet. Not to mention, her husband John looked totally dapper standing next to her!

Cardi B is a statement on her own, but this dress… WOW! She arrived wearing a white lace Ashi Studio dress that was complete with a flared hem and structured shoulders. It’s safe to say this rap queen caught everyone’s attention that night!

Lana Del Ray looked extraordinarily glamorous in her custom Gucci gown that flowed and sparkled. Our favorite part of this look, though, was the iconic star crown that rested on top of her head!

We hope you enjoyed this compilation of our top picks for the Grammys 2018 red carpet! As you can see, there were so many iconic fashion statements! Tweet us your favorite Grammys red carpet looks @fifthandninth!

Fashion Runs in the Family: Meet Alana Hadid

alana hadid

“I love fashion, and I really love how fashion can give you your own voice without ever opening your mouth.” — Alana Hadid

If you’re familiar with the world of fashion, chances are you’re constantly hearing about Gigi and Bella Hadid. But, have you heard about their trendy older sister, Alana Hadid?! Known on Instagram as @lanzybear, Alana has a huge fan base of nearly 170K. Over the course of her career, her talents and laid-back attitude have allowed her to conquer the fashion industry. While this is admirable enough, Alana also has many more big things on the way!

Currently, Alana works as a personal shopper, stylist, and designer in the Los Angeles area. In addition, she’s always traveling for her on-the-go lifestyle. To be honest, there’s really nothing Alana doesn’t do. Amongst her chaotic life, this Hadid’s objective is to find the fun in everything she does. She is relaxed and free-spirited, yet stylish, with a comfortable and fun aesthetic that we’re so into.

Alana’s natural beauty, along with her playful, down-to-earth personality is reflected through her Instagram profile. On there, she posts selfies with silly snapchat filters and funny faces amongst all of her chic, high-fashion pics.

While Alana may not have planned to be involved with fashion, the truth is that style runs in her blood. At the University of Arizona, Alana studied political science, and then continued on to receive a masters degree. Alana got her master’s in international relations at Bond University in Australia. After falling in love with fashion, however, she finally entered the industry she was always destined for.

Since then, Alana has worked as the creative designer of three different brands: Current Moji, Hadid Eyewear, and La Detresse. In addition, she also collaborated with clothing brand Lou & Grey. Here she worked to create a line of sweatshirts and accessories with her nickname “lanzybear” embroidered on each!

And now for the big announcement: Fifth & Ninth is the next lucky brand to be working with Alana Hadid!

We are so excited to announce that we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Alana to create our newest case, and we’re seriously dying to show you! To learn more about our collab, click the button below and sign up for our email list to recieve updates!

Jeanette Getrost Collab: The Scoop

Jeanette Getrost 5


“Some days are driven by inspiration and I feel this incredible desire to express myself. The process is really my favorite part because I feel most at peace when creating.” — Getrost

We are so excited to announce our upcoming collaboration with Jeanette Getrost, a freelance fashion illustrator who was named one of the industry’s most in-demand illustrators by none other than Vogue magazine!

Throughout the course of her career, Getrost has worked with many luxury brand clients such as Dior, Louboutin, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, and Tiffany & Co. Not to mention, she’s also been featured in our some of our favorite magazines including Vogue, Flaunt, and W Mag! So basically, we’re obsessed.

As you can see through her gorgeous illustrations, Jeanette has a unique take on fashion that’s inspired by not only designers, but also the beautiful world around her. She treasures the vintage aesthetic that’s created through her delicate, exaggerated lines, which we thought would look stunning on a phone case. Jeanette is always working to achieve her vision, and our squad is thrilled to be apart of the process.

Much like us here at Fifth & Ninth, most of Jeanette’s business is done through social media, especially Instagram. She has an insane following of 107K loyal followers, with thousands of likes constantly flooding each photo. So, I guess we’re not the only ones who are obsessed with everything that is Jeanette Getrost.

Aside from her incredible collaborations with esteemed brands, Jeanette also sells her own original artwork online, ranging from fifty-dollar silhouette paintings to three-hundred and fifty dollar fashion illustrations. These feminine artworks are the perfect designs for every aspect of a fashionista’s life. They work flawlessly for wall art, clothing graphics, and everything in between.

In fact, here at Fifth & Ninth, we thought they were so great that we wanted to put them on our cases! 

We are so excited to announce that we have created the most feminine, artistic, inspired, and just plain PERFECT phone case that you’re going to be hopelessly in love with. To learn more about the specifics of our collab, click here!
