Most Wanted: A Peek at This Week's Boutiques

From left to right:

Hale Bob dress. The annual Florida sojourn has officially been booked, and now it’s time to pack for those palm-breezy nights out. Our Hale Bob Boutique opens Monday, February 11, at 11AM ET.

Moschino sunglasses. These will not only be making the flight to Florida – they’ll be worn from takeoff to landing. (Talk about a chic sleeping mask.) Our Her Closet Stock-Up: Style for Everything Boutique opens Sunday, February 10, at 11AM ET.

KAF Home set of 4 napkins. Set out at my next dinner party, this design-forward foursome will (fingers crossed) distract from the fact that everyone’s meal is actually take-out. Our Colorful Dinner Conversation: The Hue-Happy Table Boutique opens Monday, February 11, at 11AM ET.

Most Wanted: A Peek at This Week's Boutiques

1. Archipelago candle. Relaxation 101: lavender. (And I promise to snuff out the flame before I nod off.) Our Time to Unwind: Soothing Soaps, Candles, & More Boutique opens Monday, February 4, at 11AM ET.  

2. Seychelles sandal. If my ideal summer were encapsulated into one sandal, it’d look exactly like this one. Our Seychelles Boutique opens Sunday, February 3, at 11AM ET.

3. We Take the Cake red velvet cake. Why yes, those are four whole layers. Happy Valentine’s Day to me. Our In the Nick of Time: Valentine’s Day Sweets Boutique opens Monday, February 4, at 11AM ET.

4. Hobo International bag. Mixed media + almighty shoulder strap = you are going to get an insane amount of use. Our Hobo International Boutique opens Monday, February 4, at 11AM ET.

Most Wanted: A Peek at This Week's Boutiques

1. Andre Assous flats. I’m already having cutoff-shorts-with-crocheted-flats fantasies. And it’s only January. Our Andre Assous Boutique opens Sunday, January 27, at 11AM ET.

2. La Mer watch. This color has me salivating. And in no way am I exaggerating. Our Color Lab: Pair Pink with Chocolate Boutique opens Tuesday, January 29, at 11AM ET.  

3. Melly M dress. Long sleeves. Rich chocolate brown. (Sort of) equestrian-inspired graphic. Yep – prep(py) school’s officially in session. Our It’s a Match: Dresses by Personality Boutique opens Tuesday, January 29, at 3PM ET.

4. Artland set of 4 glasses. Gold set against clear glass. I don’t just like you; I like-like you. Our Table for Two: A Romantic Dinner at Home Boutique opens Monday, January 28, at 11AM ET.

Clockwise, from left:

Cosabella shaping camisole.  My shin splints hurt. It’s too cold to go to the gym. My roommate keeps making cookies.  I’m tired. (Cue: Slim-ifying tank). Our Smooth Operators: Under-the-Radar Shapewear Boutique opens Tuesday, January 22, at 11AM ET.

Kate Spade sunglasses. My wardrobe? It’s a little boho, a little menswear-inspired – and totally lacking in dramatic femininity. These girly-girl shades are about to change that. Our Kate Spade Eyewear Boutique opens Wednesday, January 23, at 11AM ET.

Marcia Moran ring. This will  be my official party ring. When people see it, they’ll know I’m officially ready to party. Our The Jewelry Box: Pieces by Devon Leigh & More Boutique opens Monday, January 21, at 11AM ET.

1. Sir Alistair Rai scarf. My neutral tops are all chomping at the bit for their turn with this bold detail. Our Sir Alistair Rai Boutique opens Monday, January 14, at 11AM ET.

2. Core Bamboo tray. There really isn’t a more blatant (nor chic) hint at breakfast in bed. Our Be Bold, Be Bright: The Hue-Happy Kitchen Boutique opens Tuesday, January 15, at 3PM ET.

3. Sperry Top-Sider boot. Plaid lining, a rustic motif, and that borrowed-from-the-guys shape. These are a few of my favorite things. Our Sperry Top-Sider Women Boutique opens Monday, January 14, at 11AM ET.

4. Chooka rain boot.  Finally, a rain boot that won’t leave me questioning the dimensions of my calves. Our A Splash of Cheer: Peppy Rain Boots Boutique opens Sunday, January 13, at 11AM ET.

Most Wanted: A Peek at This Week's Boutiques

 

1. Liebeskind bag. Green has been named the official hue of 2013. (Okay, technically it was emerald – but still.) This is me being a good citizen. Our A Pop of Personality: Hues for Every Style opens Wednesday, January 9, at 3PM ET.

2. Lilly Pulitzer clutch. A shiny new shipment of everything Lilly Pulitzer? I’d take its word over the groundhog’s any day. Our Lilly Pulitzer Boutique opens Monday, January 7, at 11AM ET.

3. American Apparel sweater. I wasn’t the healthiest of holiday partakers this year. (I’m a sucker for peppermint cake balls!) That said, American Apparel – bring on the oversized tops. Our American Apparel Women Boutique opens Sunday, January 6, at 11AM ET.

4. Colonial Mills storage basket. Fashion magazines are an occupational hazard (horrible life, I know) – and this basket will be perfect for keeping those ever-growing stacks cleanly out of sight. Our Resolve to Get Organized: Chic Storage Essentials Boutique opens Sunday, January 6, at 11AM ET.

1. KitchenAid teakettle. This year I resolve to drink less coffee and more tea. (Or at least to give it the old college try.) Our KitchenAid Boutique opens Monday, December 31, at 11AM ET.  

2. Marika yoga mat. My next goal? Get back into yoga. This stylish mat will make that (a little) more plausible. Our Resolve to Get Fit: Activewear, Sneakers, & More Boutique opens Thursday, January 3, at 11AM ET.  

3. Obsession Rules Women’s Starie Suede Loafer. Always femme and just a bit edgy, these studded flats will be my chief dress-up (and feet-saving) ally of 2012. Our Best of 2012: The 9 Trends to Wear into 2013 Boutique opens Tuesday, January 1, at 11AM ET. 

4. Freestyle watch. I had this exact watch as a child of the oh-so-idyllic early ’90s. Now that it’s grown up (either that, or its retro look has come full circle), I’m hopping back on the Freestyle train – and pronto. Our Back on Track: Athletic Watches by PUMA & More Boutique opens Monday, December 31, at 11AM ET.

1. Honeydew Intimates boyshorts. I was lucky enough to snag a single pair of these insanely soft boyshorts during an employee sample sale – and, let’s just say, many, MANY more (or, here, five) are in order. Our Lay the Foundation: Hipsters, Boyshorts, & More Boutique opens Sunday, December 23, at 11AM ET.

2. Rue La La iPad® case. You guessed it: I asked for an iPad for Christmas. (So call this wishful thinking.) Our Gifts You Didn’t Get: For Women Boutique opens Tuesday, December 25, at 11AM ET.

3. Amrita Singh necklace. With this gleaming coral number, my family’s annual warm-weather getaway just got that much closer. Our Time To Get Away: Resort-Ready Picks Boutique opens Thursday, December 27, at 11AM ET. 

4. Theodora & Callum espadrilles. (See #3.) Our The Rue Warehouse Sale: Last-Chance Steals Boutique opens Tuesday, December 25, at 8PM ET.

1. Sondra Roberts bag. Hello, dreamweaver. (See what I did there?) Our The Final Dash: Handbags & Little Leather Treats Boutique opens Tuesday, December 18, at 11AM ET.

2. Ray-Ban sunglasses. While I’ve always wavered on whether this shape will fit my face, you know what? I’m over it. There’s no way these wouldn’t look totally cool on anyone. Our Ray-Ban Boutique opens Monday, December 17, at 11AM ET.

3. alice + olivia dress. I learned very early on that the best way to party is in an unrestricting (read: eating-friendly) dress. So bring on the passed hors d’oeuvres. Our alice + olivia Boutique opens Tuesday, December 18, at 11AM ET.

4. luxury rebel boots. Chalk it up to the holidays, but glittery gold’s become my newest favorite neutral. Our luxury rebel Boutique opens Monday, December 17, at 11AM ET.

1. Robinson’s Prime Reserve Samuel Adams lobster roll pack. Since moving to Boston six years ago, I’ve slowly but surely become a Sam Adams girl. (Sam Summer on draft practically sponsored my first season here, after all.) With all the fixings to make a Summer Ale–infused lobster roll – plus four Samuel Adams pint glasses – this little gourmet kit is the surest way to get that summer-in-Boston fix… even when it’s bitter cold out. Our The Holiday Spread: Steaks, Salami, & More Boutique opens Monday, December 10, at 11AM ET. 

2. Badgley Mischka gown. Question: What would Angelina wear? Answer: This. Our Badgley Mishka Boutique opens Sunday, December 9, at 11AM ET. 

3. Shun Chef’s Knife. I’ve come to accept the fact that my younger brother will always be a better cook than me. In lieu of waving a white flag? I’ll just gift him this seriously legitimate chef’s knife. (Well done, little one.) Our The Chef’s Go-To: Shun Knives Boutique opens Thursday, December 13, at 11AM ET.

4. Metrokane V1 Vacuum Decanter. For those (somewhat rare) occasions when a bottle of wine lasts more than a few days in my apartment, this vacuum decanter will ensure that every last drop tastes as good as – make that even better than – it tasted on the day of opening. Our Metrokane Boutique opens Friday, December 14, at 11AM ET.
