Editor Obsessions: Au Jour Le Jour’s Cat Lady Frock

-------

Every day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

Au jour le jourA jumper covered in sequined Siamese kittens? Count me in. Au Jour Le Jour nailed my crazy cat lady aesthetic to a tee (or in this case, a dress). And with it shipping at the end of September, I’ll have something shiny and new to come home to after the Spring ’15 collections in Europe. I’ll likely lose the knee sox and heels, and pair it with simple flats for a more sophisticated—and less schoolgirl—vibe.

Editor Obsessions: H&M’s White Ruffled Skirt

Paris Fashionweek ss2014 day 5, outside Chloé, Holly RogersEvery day, Style.com’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

Ever since I saw this photo of Net-a-Porter’s Holli Rogers last September at the Spring ’14 shows, I’ve been trying to re-create her look. I’m nearly there—I already have the green-mirrored sunnies and oversize pink sweater. But the draped, knee-length white skirt (Rogers’ is by Rick Owens) hasn’t been so easy to come by. I’ve searched high and low, namely at my favorite high-street spots like Zara, ASOS, Mango, and Topshop—I love discovering their hidden (and super-affordable) gems. Almost nine months later, I’ve finally found the perfect piece: this H&M skirt, which costs less than $50. I’ll be wearing it all summer long with loose cotton T-shirts, and then swap in my collection of J.Crew cashmere sweaters once the temperatures drop in the fall.

Shop the Look: Glitter and Be Glam

stl

Many women have childhood memories of dressing up in glistening princess gowns straight out of a Disney movie—but why should kids have all the fun? We’re currently coveting glittery, gunmetal statement pieces. Opt for a dusting of sparkle with eye-catching accessories, like an ombré pump or vintage-inspired jewels. If you’re going all in, avoid the seventies discotheque look by keeping your silhouettes simple, like the glam-rock darlings at Marc Jacobs Resort ’15 and Saint Laurent Fall ’14. Their glittering dolly-bird shift dresses were the perfect mix of playful and sexy. Shop our favorite sparklers by Jimmy Choo, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lanvin, and more, below.

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Cosmo Night satin dress, $598, available at bloomingdales.com

2. Deborah Lippmann nail lacquer in Today Was a Fairy Tale, $20, available at sephora.com

3. Saint Laurent Candy glitter leather shoulder bag, $950, available at mytheresa.com

4. Lanvin Iconic gunmetal-tone crystal ring, $495, available at net-a-porter.com

Editor Obsessions: Vivetta’s Striped Cutout Dress

This Friday is my 27th birthday. In recent years, it’s become something of a tradition for me to buy a new dress to celebrate the occasion. But with the Fall Haute Couture shows now in full swing, I’ll be glued to my desk for the rest of the week, so I’ll be finding my party look online this time around. Hands-down, my favorite e-tailer at the moment is Avenue 32, which focuses on promoting emerging talent. While perusing the site’s well-curated selection, I regularly come across new designers to keep on my radar, and recently stumbled upon this perfectly feminine, striped linen frock by up-and-coming Italian label Vivetta. With its cute bow and cutout details at the sides, it’ll quickly become a staple in my summer wardrobe. I’ll be pairing my birthday dress with these fantastic cobalt blue suede sandals by Maryam Nassir Zadeh, and topping it all off with my vintage jean jacket, which will make the outfit casual enough to fit in with the hipsters at the psych rock concert in Bushwick I’ll be headed to.

Editor Obsessions: The Americana Poncho Towel From Fresco Towels

rachelIt’s a poncho and it’s a towel, which makes it pretty much perfect for all beach- and poolside occasions. Also, it’s perfectly patriotic for celebrating this July 4th. Given the resurgence of the “drug rug” at Saint Laurent men’s, we’ll surely be seeing more of these toppers at the Spring ready-to-wear collections. But for Independence Day weekend, this one will do.
