Loving This Week: White Sneakers + The Met Does Nail Polish

Just Female Dress - DryBar Hair Dryer - Veja Sneakers - True and Co. Bra - Cirque Nail Polish

It’s been a good week for unique beauty finds, including what might be the best travel hairdryer ever created. Really.

Elsewhere, I’m ready to bite on the new white sneakers trend that is making its way through the fashion circuit. And I think I found an appropriately chic pair to try.

Take a look at all of my favorite shopping picks for the week…

1. Just Female Genova Shirt Dress, $142.00
This wrap shirt dress has that easy-going, simple-yet-pretty look that we all love for summer. I’d add sandals or flip-flops for a weekend vibe, but you could also very easily dress this up a bit for a casual office.

2. DryBar Baby Buttercup Travel Blow Dryer, $135.00
The folks over at DryBar are billing this as the “ultimate travel hair dryer,” and I’m inclined to agree with them. It boasts a powerful 1875-watt AC motor, three temperatures, two speed settings, ionic technology, and a locking cool shot button…all weighing just 13 ounces! Plus – the clincher for me – it operates at 120/240 volts, meaning you can use it for overseas travel.

3. Veja Esplar White Leather Sneakers, $120.00
All it took was Victoria Beckham getting snapped wearing white sneaks, and then admitting in an interview that she has given up heels for sneakers. If the woman who waxed poetic about the importance of “that extra half inch” has fallen for white sneakers, I’m on board. These Esplar sneaks from Brazilian slow fashion label Veja are my new favorites.

4. True & Co. Harper Active Pullover Sports Bra, $54.00
This new strappy pullover bra will look great in yoga or barre class, plus, according to the reviews, it’s super comfy.

5. Cirque Colors Machina Nail Lacquer Set, $42.00
Made exclusively for The Costume Institute exhibition Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, this nail polish from Brooklyn-based Cirque Colors was created in collaboration with retail innovator Olivia Kim. The shades were inspired by materials and techniques in the exhibition. This combines three of my favorite past times: fashion, beauty, and obsessive museum-going. I can’t resist.
