For the next five days, The Outnet is running a master sale in which some pieces are up to 85 percent off. What better excuse to indulge? I’m currently lusting over Balmain’s cashmere and cotton fuchsia top (remember, fuchsia is the color for Fall ’14); Victoria Beckham’s denim pants in a dark wash (at $57, how can I resist?); Christopher Kane’s modern LBD; Pierre Hardy’s two-tone sandals; and Roksanda Ilincic’s color-blocked dress. These items will definitely get my wardrobe ready for spring.

Come Fall ’14, I’ll be going back to the sixties with Saint Laurent, Gucci, and Miu Miu. The glittery Mary Janes from Saint Laurent will bring sparkle to my autumn wardrobe, but until then, I’ll be stepping into the trend with this beyond adorable Roger Vivier style. I’m a huge fan of the classic buckle—in fact, I consider the buckle shoes I currently have in my wardrobe to be my lucky footwear. I won’t be parting with them, but it’s definitely time for a refresh. Roger Vivier’s Mary Jane version will be my go-to option when wearing skirts and minidresses this spring.
Roger Vivier leather kitten heel with ankle strap and metal/lacquer buckle at toe, $975. Available at Roger Vivier, New York, (212) 861-5371.
Chanel’s Camélia Galbé ring has been on my wish list for more than a decade. I remember first seeing the collection when I moved to New York, and I nearly bought the white ceramic and yellow gold cocktail ring on more than a few occasions. Sadly, I never followed through with the purchase, but lucky for me, the house is relaunching the collection with rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and a tiara. The fine jewelry range is arriving in stores now, and wouldn’t you know it, the cocktail ring is still my favorite piece. I adore both the black and white ceramic versions. In fact, I might be more in love now than I was before, considering that the updated flower-shaped bauble comes with a diamond center. How can I resist?

Fringe is one of the biggest trends for spring, and I still haven’t had a chance to step into it. Ever since I saw Tamara Mellon’s presentation back in 2013, her leather fringe skirt has been on my wish list. Today, Mellon is launching her brand’s e-commerce site, and I finally got a chance to add this little number to my shopping cart.

We’ve seen metallics all over the Fall runways: Think Rodarte’s Lurex coats, Saint Laurent’s gold leather minidress, Pedro Lourenço’s pencils skirts, and beyond. Naturally, this has inspired me to add metallic to my wardrobe. I’ve already succeeded in the accessories department, but I still wanted a piece of clothing. To my surprise, at a market appointment, I found exactly what I was searching for: the perfect bronze dress from the Burch sisters’ new contemporary brand, Trademark. The label also has great cotton skirts and tops, and nothing costs more than $500. Trademark’s simple aesthetic is what I was immediately drawn to. I’m planning on wearing this frock during the day with a chunky wedge or at night with a simple sandal.
