Welcome to my May picks. Shopbop has an awesome sale now until Thursday so perfect timing. Needless to say I did some damage. How could I not. Here's what I noticed in May. Starting from the left these are the newest Lucid New York pieces, freshly handmade by yours truly - hoop earrings and wishbone bracelet.
Then the truly summery item - a rash guard by Zimmerman. I surf and I've never seen a rash guard that cute. Companies never cared about the look of the rash guards. They were treated them more in a utilitarian sense. Here's one that looks cute too. And he made others too. Miguelina has some fantastic (as in fantasy) cover-ups, this crochet top included. Prices are a bit steep but if you wear a cover-up for a few years that's worth it. You can always explain the purchase by "I'll wear it for a few years", n'est-ce pas?
Now the turquoise ones are my sandals! I mean the ones I ordered. Do you catch yourself saying that things "are yours" instead of that something is "like yours." I do it. So I ordered the sandals by Dolce Vita, oddly enough I didn't have a problem choosing between the pink, turquoise and nude. The turquoise won. Hands down. Now the long crochet dress by Mara Hoffman is something I'm waiting for impatiently. I ordered it in XS, thank God, now I see there are only S and M left.
The top is by Anarchy Street. Interesting cut - lots of openings in different places but it's a stunning piece. Cynthia I know you like it but please don't buy it as we go to the same parties ;-) Well well let's see if my friend who says she reads this blog really does read it in its entirety lol. What do you think? Ha! How many times have I mentioned this Zara jacket - bought thanks to a tweet. It's stunning, perfect safari jacket. Love wearing it.
The Marc by Marc bag had to be included. The color is fun, I feel like it should be called a blushing kiss. Or should a blushing kiss be darker?
Never enough lace for the summer. These lace shorts are by Free People. The striped jeans are Free People too but forget it. I didn't even see a sign of these! Jane from Sea of Shoes wore them in one of her posts and that caused their overall disappearance. The link started linking to another pair - so not the same, so not the same!
There are so many of the Beckett sneakers variations. Isabel Marant is such a trend setter - she came up with the original design of these sneakers with hidden platform and lots of other designers started "getting inspired." Such is the fashion world. If it looks amazing everyone wants to sell it and buy it. Amen.
