Most Coveted: A Peek at This Week’s Boutiques

By Nicole Andrew, Rue La La Fashion Editor

 
“Little” indulgences – be they small in price or size – can go a long way in boosting your mood. This week, I’m sharing three summer finds, as well as one piece of pint-sized luxury with so much personality it will make your heart sing.

most-coveted-blog-main

1. DV by Dolce Vita ‘Hoyt’ Romper. Rompers and jumpsuits have come a long way from vintage styles of the 70s. Now more tailored than ever, the cuts are made to flatter in all the right ways. 

2. Elie Saab ‘Le Parfum’ Eau de Toilette. Light with fresh floral notes, this is the perfect summer scent – plus, the bottle pulls double-duty as chic vanity décor!

3. Diane von Furstenberg ‘Martha’ Sunglasses. What’s that, you say? Too many sunglasses? Never.

4. Prada Saffiano Tote. A little embellishment never hurt anyone (neither did a mini Prada).

Most Coveted: A Peek at This Week’s Boutiques

By Nicole Andrew, Rue La La Fashion Editor

 
When Saturday rolls around each week, I find myself grabbing the same easy staples from my closet. Cue the essential summer-weekend wardrobe: tees (in all shapes and colors), denim (the more lived-in, the better), and my favorite pair of sunglasses. Boring? It doesn’t have to be. To add interest, look to details like frayed edges on your jeans and subtle textures on your solid tops. Then, finish off your casual looks with updated extras. From barbecues to trips to the farmers’ market, you’ll be ready for whatever the weekend brings.

  1. HUDSON Jeans “Libertine” Boyfriend Short. Master the off-duty look with these distressed cutoffs.
  2. BB Dakota Space-Dye Top. For cool nights, throw on a lightweight tee with sleeves. Then grab the s’mores.
  3. Pink Peony Kitchen Candle. Floral scents keep your home fresh and ready for guests.
  4. Sparkling Sage Earrings. Statement earrings in subdued hues will tie your casual look together. Tip: They always pair well with a loose braid or messy bun.
  5. House of Harlow 1960 “Lucy” Sunglasses. Shades in retro silhouettes are making a comeback. Have your moment in the sun with this new (or, should I say, old?) round shape.
