Loving This Week: Black Diamonds + Un-Basic Sunglasses

Saint Laurent Sunglasses - Nudie Jeans - Superga Sneakers - Gabriela Artigas Ring - Longchamp Handbag

I’m having a bit of an accessories moment. Without trying, I keep finding the exact accessories I have been searching for over the past year or so.

A perfectly minimalist rose gold and black diamond ring turned up at a favorite local San Francisco shop. A pair of sunglasses that are insanely chic, and fall far from “basic” status, dropped into the new arrivals section at one of my go-to NYC retailers. It’s really has been a great shopping week.

Check out what’s in my online shopping cart this week…

1. Saint Laurent Classic 2 Sunglasses, $325.00
I used to be so much better about switching up my sunglasses game each season. Then I fell in love with a pair of oversized square Chloe glasses and got stuck. I’m on the hunt for a pair of sunglasses that are timelessly chic, but completely different from the old standbys (e.g., aviators need not apply). This stunning Saint Laurent pair is just what I’ve been searching for: simple, sophisticated, and fresh.

2. Nudie 32” Skinny Lin Jeans, $199.00
This week’s only clothing find caught my eye with its unique layered wash. At a glance, it just looks like a cool blue-black rinse. But, turns out it’s indigo denim over-dyed with black, and then bleached down to grey. The trim is organic gunmetal. That’s freaking amazing. And gorgeous. I so need these jeans.

3. Superga Calf Hair Slip-On Sneakers, $139.95
Just when I thought the slip-on skater sneaker trend had reached as far as it could possibly go, a new entrant sneaks onto the market. Cult-favorite Italian sneaker brand Superga is now offering this funky calf hair slip-on sneaker in both black and a rich Bordeaux red. The best part is the price – much lower than the other calf hair offerings I’ve seen, and you get the signature Superga sole as a bonus!

4. Gabriela Artigas 14k Rose Gold w/ Black Diamond Ring, $644.00
I love the combination of rose gold and black diamonds -- it feels subversive and luxe at the same time. But, sadly, the combo mostly shows up in vintage wedding ring settings and vaguely steampunk modern offerings. This micro pave ring is the full on minimalist option I’ve been wishing for.

5. Longchamp 2.0 Two-Tone Crossbody Bag, $395.00
Did you know Longchamp made incredibly chic cross-body handbags? I definitely did not. When I spotted this 2.0 bag in the Nordstrom new arrivals section, I had to do a double take on the label. It reminds me of Celine or Saint Laurent, which is not what I think of when I imagine the classic Longchamp look. I love this bag.
