Yeah, I’m taking a little break from shopping, due largely to the fact that my idyllic Brooklyn neighborhood that I’ve been bragging about so much is lousy with thieves who snatch packages off stoops after the Fedex guy has delivered them. In fact, this coat was recently swiped, and my heart still hurts when I think about that. But here are several items I might buy if I were shopping, starting with this perfect Nili Lotan blouse.
I love this chic quilted puffer bag from Claire V—you could use it for everything from greenmarket runs to packing for a weekend away.
Once the weather turns warm, I plan on wearing nothing but shirtdresses—or at least I plan on wearing a whole lot of them. This royal blue number from Universal Standard is awfully spiff, and it comes in black and navy and white stripes too. And because it’s Universal Standard, it comes in just about every size imaginable.
I’m always looking for black camis to wear under my tops this time of year, and this one has a nice bit of embroidery.
I am such a Pisces—emotional, creative, moody—and it’s my birthday next week, something I’m trying very hard to remain positive about. So I might go for this adorable Baggu reusable bag, which reminds me of something Peter Max might have designed.
I continue to try and make higher-waisted jeans work for me, and while I’ve had very little success on this front, hope springs eternal. These jeans from Paige have a great faded-out wash (I dislike pitch-black jeans) and a raw hem, which I know not all of you like, but which I’m a fan of.
The lace details on this Sezane tee are really quite fetching. It also comes in black, but I surprise myself by preferring this rusty hue, as I typically never go for earth tones.
Just a really adorable ruffle-neck denim shirt at a decent price.
And finally: I think this cashmere hoodie looks like the kind of piece that would get thrown on constantly.
