1. Mary Katrantzou Babalona Dress ($4,070) // 2. Sigerson Morrison Coline Sandal ($425) // 3. 3.1 Phillip Lim Muscle Tee ($195) // 4. Helmut Lang Overlap Top ($335) // 5. Astley Clarke Labradorite Ring ($193) // 6. Thea Croc Clutch Bag ($85) // 7. Sigerson Morrison Ariel Sandal ($295)
One. If you were in the mood to spend two month’s pay on a dress, this gorgeous, printed Jacquard party dress would be an excellent choice. I love the mix of pastels and the shimmering, but not too shiny, look. Jacquard has made a comeback for spring, and if you’d like a printed dress that won’t have the landlord knocking on your door, this pastel floral number has a cool, structured shape. I also like this bold teal dress and this chevron-printed, full-skirted dress, both under-$100.
Two and Seven. Sigerson Morrison has.the.best shoes this spring. The Coline sandal is on my lust have list (not a typo) and the flat strappy Ariel sandal isn’t too bad either. I also like these flat ankle strap sandals, these laser-cut ballet flats and these metallic braided sandals.
Three. A clean cut basic like this unfortunately named “muscle” tee has a lot of uses. I wear mine with a cardi and jeans and tucked into a printed pencil skirt. Want a similar look for under-$100? I like this bright lime shirt, this soft mauve one and this dark teal one.
Four. I adore the asymmetric drape on this tank. I also like this sleek spaghetti strap halter Helmut Lang made this season. It would look great under a slouchy, open neck sweater. I also found this drape silk tank and this asymmetric top for under-$50.
Five. I’ve been having a bit of a love affair with labradorite. I love the deepness of the gray stone with flecks of teal, navy, mauve and gold. I found a similar ring for $75, and this chunky faceted ring for $63. I also adore this labradorite station necklace, these chain drop earrings and these sleek studs.
Six. Dark teal was a hot color for fall, but I think it could easily carry over to spring and summer. This croc-embossed clutch would look lovely with a cocktail dress for a summer wedding. I also love this dark teal one shoulder dress and the dramatic neckline on this sequin dress. But if you want your teal crush contained to a handbag, this under-$150 tote is pretty chic, as is this domed Dooney & Bourke satchel.
