1. Issa Gathered Crepe Dress ($695) // 2. Moroccan Necklace ($89 + 30% off) // 3. Mossimo Peaked Hem Jacket ($35) // 4. Tan Cut-Out Shoe Boots ($59) // 5. Hexagon Stack Ring ($78) // 6. Sophie Hulme Tote ($965) // 7. Rebecca Taylor Demi Peplum Tee ($150) // 8. Navy Collared Dress ($79)

One. Totally in love with this dress.  The figure-flattering gathers, the any season color of the fabric and the classic styling make it a winner all-around.  Looking for something similar for less?  This flame red dress from Eliza J is very similar, and this black jersey dress has the same side gathers.

Two. I just bought this necklace to breathe new life into some of the dresses in my closet.  I plan to wear it with this hot pink dress for a late summer wedding, and with my white button up to work.  Like the idea of Moroccan accents but want something simpler?  I love the shape on these lever back earrings.

Three. I’ve featured various jackets from Target over the course of this season.  This blazer is a knock-off of the Rebecca Minkoff Becky Jacket, and I think it could really dress up jeans or suit separates if you’re looking for an inexpensive piece that is also versatile.

Four. I go back and forth on these “shoe boots.”  One minute, I think they’re super chic.  The next I think they’re too trendy.  Either way, if you like them, they’d look amazing paired with white a dress with a flirty skirt this summer and with skinny denim and plum-colored sweaters in the fall.

Five. Rebecca Minkoff has really stepped up her jewelry game creating pieces that are stylish and cool for under-$150.  I adore this matching hexagon bracelet (wouldn’t wear them together though) and these simple chevron stack rings.  But I think this leather and metal bracelet is my favorite.

Six. Despite their price, I love Sophie Hulme totes.  They’re so flawlessly elegant with clean lines and just the right amount of hardware. (You can read more about her and her distinctive bags, here.)  I haven’t found any good replicas of her bags yet, but if I do, I’ll let you know.  (Though I wouldn’t mind owning this bag with a cool, structured shape.)

Seven. Stripes? Peplum? I’m there.  This top reminds me of a blouse from The Row that I tried on last season (too small in the arms).  I also found this under-$40 tee from The Limited, this plus-size top and this petite one.

Eight. I like the shape of the sleeve and the clean look of this Dorothy Perkins dress.  If you’re looking for an easy navy pencil dress, I also like this short-sleeved number and this one with a waterfall detail, both from ASOS.  Petite?  Try this dress with shoulder details.  Plus-size?  I thought this belted one was a good option.
