Missoni Scarf - Origins Eye Cream - Rebecca Minkoff MAB Handbag - Zara Pumps

I’m stocking up on my beauty must-haves, plus checking out new versions of some old fashion favorites. Here’s a peek inside my online shopping cart this week…

1. Missoni Wave Knit Scarf, $89.99 (was $200.00)
Missoni scarves, with their high quality weave and distinctive knit patterns, are the perfect accessories for adding a little luxe pizzazz to a winter ensemble. I already have three, but at this price I wouldn’t mind adding a fourth to my collection. I’m particularly fond of this darker color combination, which feels a little more restrained than many other Missoni knits.

2. Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream, $30.00
This illuminating eye cream is my go-to eye treatment during the day. It does wonders for brightening my super deep and dark hereditary eye circles, and it works well under concealer and other eye area makeup. If you have hereditary eye circles – the ultra dark kind typically inherited from Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, or Indian ancestors – give this a try. It’s not a complete miracle worker, but it’s the best I’ve found. I ran out a few days ago, and immediately ordered another jar.

3. Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Cream, $43.50
While I was placing my Sephora order, I also grabbed a new jar of my go-to night eye cream. This cream from the Origins Plantscription line is really moisturizing and seems to help keep fine lines and crow’s feet at bay. I’ve never experienced any irritation or stinging with Origins eye creams, which keeps me coming back jar after jar.

4. Zara Cracked Leather High Heel Court Shoe, $89.90
A few years ago I fell madly in love with a pair of almond-toe, beige cracked leather heels from Prada. I waited a little too long to hit the buy button, and ended up missing out. I hadn’t run into anything similar until this week, while browsing the new arrivals at Zara. The look isn’t quite as posh as the Prada version, but the price can’t be beat, particularly given that the upper is genuine cow leather.

5. Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB Ostrich-Embossed Leather, $206.24 (was $395.00)
Long time readers already know that I’m a huge fan of Rebecca Minkoff MAB bags. I already have four, and have taken to convincing friends that they need one of these bags. I know, it’s ridiculous. I just ran across this ostrich-embossed version on sale at Saks. There is a very good chance that either I will buy it, or I will convince a friend to buy it, in the next 48 hours. Will you be the one to snag this gorgeous bag?
