What Should Be In My Closet: Splurge Edition

| , ,

I always love a good fashion wish list. The “if I won the lottery and could stock my closet with anything” sort of wish list. I rounded up a bunch of splurge items that I am loving and would love to have in my closet.
1. Zimmerman Eden Embroidered Dress – I have been lusting after Zimmerman pieces for more than a year now. This one has such stunning delicate detail that I can imagine myself wanting to wear it all the time. 
2. Alice & Olivia Off-the-Shoulder Dress – I’ve seen a ton of lower priced versions of this style dress, but the fitted shape and double ruffle sleeves makes this definitely splurge worthy.
3. Dior Metal Aviator Sunglasses – There are aviators and then there are these Dior aviators. The colored inset makes them much more interesting than a standard mirrored lens.
4. Prose & Poetry Tank Top – I can see this top worn with distressed jeans, cut-offs, slim white jeans or a chic pencil skirt. It is so versatile yet still a conversation piece.
5. Thierry Lasry Sunglasses – The shape of these is quite conventional, but the clear frames make them easy to wear with any and everything.
6. Chloe Faye Medium Shoulder Bag – This. Bag. THIS BAG! If there is one splurge item on this entire list that I want the most – it is this bag. The color, the shape, the detail. It’s perfection in my eyes.
7. Saint Laurent Sneakers – Leave it to Saint Laurent to make glitter stars on sneakers the chicest thing ever. 
8. Nanette Lepore Lace Top – I can see this top being the perfect option for someone wanting an alternative to a cocktail dress. This will high waisted pants and the most gorgeous stilettos is the way to do wedding guest attire without opting for a dress.
9. Gucci Block Heel Loafers – There is something so striking about these somewhat frumpy high heeled loafers. And the crackled metallic finish makes them even more interesting.
10. Ramy Brook Paris Dress – The pattern, the shape, the colors – this is THE dress for a summer night out. 
11. Self Portrait Strappy Lace Dress – Self Portrait is another brand I have been lusting after for the past year or more. The designs and details of every piece is like no other. This one seems perfect for year round events and I can see it being a closet staple even after 10 years.

What Should Be In My Closet: Lace-Up Shoes At All Price Points

| ,

It’s official – lace-up shoes are taking over. LOL But just like the off the shoulder trend, they are slowly growing on me. There are so many great styles out now so it’s easy to find something that fits my taste. Here are some of the ones that caught my eye recently:
1. Soludos Lace Up Sandals – I adore Soludos, and the detail on these sandals is just enough to make them interesting but still wearable with anything.
2. Loeffler Randall Starla Flat Sandals – Gold. Stars. Straps. Yes to all these.
3. Loeffler Randall Elyse Sandals – Straps with a higher heel can be tricky, so I appreciate that the rest of the shoe is quite simple to allow the lace-up look to be the feature.
4. Aquazzura Christy Flats – I have been lusting after these for years, and while they are a splurge, they were one of the first lace up shoes that started this whole trend. The shape of the shoe make them chic enough for dresses and skirts, while the simple solid color and flat soles allows for a casual look as well.
5. Sigerson Morrison Wedge Pumps – If a wedge, lace up sandal and pointy toe pump had a baby, this is what it would look like. And I love it.
6. Stuart Weitzman Lace-Up Flat Sandals – I like that these sandals are simply ALL laces. And it comes in a ton of different colors!
7. Topshop Nadra Sandal – These dabble in the lace up trend but only slightly so I can see these being worn for years to come. What a great classic black sandal for the summer!
8. Loeffler Randall Ghillie Flat – There are a ton of knock-offs of the Aquazzura Christy Flats, but I find that the Loeffler Randall ones are some of the best. And this shade of red is my favorite so that’s why I love them even more.

9. Topshop Gladiator Sandals – A gladiator sandal that doesn’t lace all the way up to your knee – yes! I can appreciate the gladiator trend, but like the understated version of this sandal so that it will still be current for many more seasons.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I am currently working on putting together some video ideas for the next month – please feel free to leave any requests or suggestions in the comments below.
