Helen Ou Cat Eyes Mask, $10
Go to sleep feeling cute and undisturbed with this cat sleeping mask. Perfect for October, but also every other day of the year, because black cats are the best.
Laser Kitten “Girls Girls Girls” Bomber Jacket, $120
It’s getting chillier in MOST parts of the U.S., so get yourself this rad bomber jacket from Laser Kitten. It’ll make you feel untouchable.
“Fuck” Wired Ring, $9+
I’m really into swear words this week! Oh well. Sometimes it’s best to let it all out, and by let it all out, I mean wear a ring on your finger that says “fuck.”
Sam Edelman Packer Booties, $128
These not-quite-winter boots look amazing with a pair of black jeans or a dress-and-tights combo. The zipper gives these boots a casual feel, which I love.
Melissa Bui Veronica Dress, $565 exclusively at The SIL
The SIL is your new favorite destination for exquisite exclusives, all culled from female designers by Natalie Bloomingdale (SIL stands for Stuff I Like). What makes The SIL so refreshingly different from other curated e-boutiques, is that Bloomingdale only stocks her site with true exclusives, meaning you can’t find these anywhere else on the internet. In an age of being able to find the same dress on practically hundreds of websites, it’s nice to know you can go to a place and pick out something truly original. Take, for example, Exhibit A: this breathtaking lavender dress from designer Melissa Bui. How gorgeous is this number?? The sweet little bows are actually detachable (!) so if you’re in a classic mood you can take them off or if you’re feeling extra kicky you can leave ‘em on. This dress makes me want to find the nearest garden and do a pirouette.
Fresh Crème Ancienne Supreme Eye Serum, $165
As a self-declared skin care obsessive, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of taking care of your delicate under eye area. I’m a longtime devotee of Fresh, so when I saw they came out with a new eye serum that took five years to make in a monastery and is their most artisanal eye treatment, I was seriously intrigued. The formula is made with silk tree bark blend, along with other fancy roots and botanicals. The serum melted into my skin instantly, and I practically felt like I could hear harp music playing when I applied it — that’s how luxurious it felt. Right away, my tired eyes felt more awake. And yes, it has a luxurious price tag, but if you’re looking to splurge on an eye treatment, this baby is the one.
Parachute Cashmere Throw, $349
There’s something so posh about the idea of a “cashmere throw.” It’s like an instant upgrade for your entire apartment. This chic gray one would look perfect draped across my armchair.
