Qupid Espadrilles - Rick Owens Dress - All Saints Coat - Equipment Shirt - Land of Women Bra

The sad lack of rain here in Northern California has led me to give up on winter. I’m moving on to spring, and that means new espadrilles and a chic spring jacket. Plus, I’ve discovered a brand new lingerie line that is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly minimalist.

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

1. Qupid Dillion Espadrille, $78.00
January has passed without a single drop of rain falling in San Francisco. I’m officially giving up on winter and moving on to spring. Espadrilles are a perfect first spring purchase – you know you’ll use them, and you don’t have to worry about them going out of style before the end of the season. This inexpensive pair has just the right mix of classic good looks and modern flair.

2. Rick Owens Pearl Grey Belted Dagger Dress, $1,480.00
This slim, full-length dress is the opposite of practical, at least as far as my life goes. But, I was instantly attracted to it as I breezed through the new arrivals section at Ssense. Like most Rick Owens items, it has a stand out architectural look that is mesmerizing. Now if I could just figure out where to wear it.

3. All Saints Farrah Coat, $505.00
This classic trench coat is made all the more fabulous with the addition of buckled cuff straps. It’s the perfect mix of masculine and feminine. Pretty much an ideal spring coat.

4. Equipment Brett Chambray Top, $74.99 (was $198.00)
Blame it on Pinterest. I’ve noticed that many of the minimalist street style looks feature a basic chambray shirt, so, of course, I’ve been trying to find the ideal specimen to add to my wardrobe. This cotton version is both classic and a great deal.

5. Land of Women Classic Bra, $80.00
I’m in love with this brand new lingerie line from model McKenzie Raley. Vogue Italia describes this minimalist, well-edited line as a kind of anti-lingerie, “…built for the decisive, hard working, no nonsense woman.” Think of it as the opposite of America’s favorite mall lingerie: “…limited styles, only available in black, a degree of anonymity, and the sole purpose of practicality.” I love it, and can’t wait to see what they do next.
