Five Things I’m Buying for Spring
Mar 7, 2022
This spring, I’m prioritizing pieces that bring me joy. Pieces and product I can wear and use for seasons to come. Here are a few things that are on my wishlist for the season.
This tote from Everlane is a great weekend, travel, or work bag (yes, it will hold a 13″ laptop). The wide, adjustable strap is a lifesaver. The Italian-made leather is luxurious and feels expensive. And the folded front pocket is a nice detail. It reminds me of this more expensive Strathberry tote.
Looking for something less expensive? Try this deep tan hobo bag I found on Amazon. It looks much more expensive than its <$75 price tag.
Chanel’s nail colors make fantastic gifts. And their classic Le Vernis polish in Vibration is no exception. The color is a great alternative to red, and gives you more pop than baby-pink. I am so excited for it to arrive.
This dress from J.McLaughlin is everything that I’m looking for for spring and more. The dark floral print reminds me of one of my favorite William Morris designs. It gives you all the zest of a spring floral in a sophisticated, feminine print. Love it.
I regret nothing, except my eyebrows from 1997-2009. I’ve been growing my brows back in for years, and they are so much better than they used to be. But shortly before Christmas, I started using GrandeLash on my brows, and even the parts I was sure would never grown back are filling in. (This is particularly amazing since I’m not the most diligent user of the product, 1-2x per week, maybe. Clearly, it works.)
As my brows grow back in, I have been filling them in with the Hourglass fine-tip brow pencil. It works well, but I think I’m ready for the big guns, the Hourglass Fiber Brow Gel. The gel uses micro-fibers that adhere to your hair like that Ronco Hair in a Can from the 80s infomercials. I received a sample a few weeks back, and one swipe gave me millennial brows in seconds.
After eight years, it’s finally time to replace my black point Rothy’s. They don’t have a tear or a rip or a fray, but the color has faded with washing and wearing and I’d like a fresh pair. And while I’m there, I will be picking up these Rothy’s driving moccasins (though I can’t decide between the beige and the tan).
I saw these moccasins (in tan) on a friend, and they looked fabulous. The shape is classic. The colored stripe at the back is a nice accent. And she said they were comfortable out of the box. Sold.
