Things I bought, things I want

13

I’m not quite certain how I rationalized the purchase of this adorable bug-shaped ring by designer Eva Noga, who takes her inspiration from the creatures and flowers in her garden. Maybe because I haven’t purchased any jewelry in a really long time, and maybe because it looks pricier than it turned out to be (although it was hardly cheap). It’s tough to say for sure what propelled me to hand over my credit card. But I’m so glad I did, because every time I spy it on my finger it makes me happy.

This long-sleeved tee isn’t the most exciting item I’ve ever posted, but it’s made of a nice slouchy jersey, and I really dig the deep scoopneck. I feel like I would wear it constantly, and that it would be good for the kind of light layering I do this time of year. Here’s a similar but cheaper version.

I tried this chic satin tee on at Vince the other day, and it was pretty great: very casually luxe in feel, and with a sophisticated cut. But I had just purchased that ring, so I took a pass.

This Caron Callahan jacket is kind of kimono-ish in shape, but still nicely streamlined.

I love Beklina, an indie commerce site based in La Selva Beach, California. Owner Angelina Rennell has a great eye for prints and interesting silhouettes, and the in-house line of footwear and apparel is very arty-girl-cool. I want these ribbed clog sandals really badly, but I don’t think my closet can bear one more pair of clog sandals.

This is Everlane’s new sneaker—priced just under $100—and I think it’s very happening in a Euro kind of a way.

I just really like the wash on these jeans: nice and dark, with a minimum of distressing.

Missoni has done a little collab with Adidas, and I am slightly obsessed with it in general and this top in particular.

Such a cute, well-priced, happy little bucket hat.

    The CofH jeans are a perfect wash and cut! And I’m officially stalking everything by Vince this summer.

    Love the clogs and the runners- both super cute. I recently ordered a pair of black No 6 Old School clogs, but for the price I couldn’t keep them. They rubbed a bit where the leather met the base and I know that would bother my feet enough to soon toss them into the back of my closet and pretend they weren’t there.

    I know I’d wear the heck out of those clogs! They’re sold out of my size though.

    Love the color of the jacket.

    This clog addict has to report that I just bought the clogs and I they are like beautiful modernist sculptures and so comfy right out of the box. I also bought one of the Beklina sun hats–also making me feel super cool and arty.

    Those clogs are calling me!

    Kim, I’d love to see you do a write-up of the lewks at the CAMP Met Gala!

    This is such a nice selection of things-that-bring-joy. I’m in that can’t-order-anything-because-I’m-fixin-to-leave-for-the-summer time frame, but I might revisit this posting once I arrive at the “summer home”––(I put summer home in quotes because the phrase “summer home” sounds so pretentious and our Long Island house is NOT on that pretentious “summer home” scale! Plus, it’s now Ned’s full time home so only a summer home to me.) Here’s an interesting side note: at my pedicure session this morning I found out that even OPI nail lacquer has formaldehyde in it. Consumers beware! The salon I go to uses SpaRitual which has come out with a vegan nail polish that breathes! Very excited by this. It’s the little things…

    I bought the Everlane sneakers and loved how they looked, but they are VERY stiff and not comfortable (for me) so I’m returning them. Sadly.

      Oh darn. I was looking for an all-day walking shoe for travel. These don’t sound like they are it. I might go for the Sambarose Adidas Kim recommended a few posts back. They’re less expensive, too.

    The ring is beautiful and so unique. I can see why it makes you happy. It is definitely more splurge worthy that the Vince tee (though it is beautiful too). Wise choice.

    That ring is SO CUTE! Wish I could afford the centipede earrings though.
