Iris and Ink Sweater - Natori Feathers Bra - Helmut Lang Tee - Kenneth Jay Lane Ring

A little bit of sale shopping, balanced with a little bit of stocking up on new favorites. Here’s a peek inside my online shopping cart this week…

1. Natori Feathers Underwire Bra, $68.00
I discovered this bra via online concierge bra buying service True & Co., which is truly one of the most fabulous inventions in online shopping in recent years. It is, by far, the most flattering, best fitting bra I have ever owned. It’s now practically sold out at True & Co. But, it’s still available in five colors and a huge range of sizes at Nordstrom, where it has received 223 perfect 5-star reviews. I’ll be stocking up.

2. Helmut Lang Asymmetric Slub-Jersey Top, $54.00 (was $135.00)
I live for sale-priced Helmut Lang. This new arrival at The Outnet strikes me as being particularly versatile. I’d wear it now under a black shrunken blazer, or layered under a sweater. Once the weather heats up, it will look great with a pair of skinny jeans.

3. Kenneth Jay Lane Gold-Plated Weave Ring, $24.75 (was $55.00)
I love a bold statement ring for nights out, but I have a bad habit of losing rings. I leave them on the sink in bathrooms, or on a table. It’s a ridiculous habit requiring me to be smart when it comes to the value of the rings I choose to wear out. This sale-priced KJL basket weave ring is a great find for both its style and its affordable sale price.

4. Iris & Ink Amelie Cashmere Sweater, $198.00
Sport-inspired clothes aren’t a big look for me, but the prevalence of the style this season has me searching for a version that still fits with my personal aesthetic. I think this jersey-look cashmere sweater would look smart, and season-appropriate sporty, paired with a pencil skirt and ankle strap pumps.

5. Vince Cable-Knit Print Blouse, $219.00 (was $285.00)
I first spotted this unique blouse last season, and instantly fell for its so cool print. It’s hard to really appreciate the print unless you do a super zoom view (click through and check it out… it’s worth it!). It’s a super realistic cable knit sweater print that is reminiscent of a classic Vince slouchy sweater. So fun, and appropriate for both work and play.
