Loving This Week: Lace Knickers + Korean Bathhouse Soap

Monday, February 01, 2016

Veronica Beard Dress - Everlane Sweater - Acne Studios Shoes - Binu Binu Soap - COS Lingerie

This week’s picks are definitely heavy in Swedish influence, including finds from two Stockholm-based fashion powerhouses that live on opposite ends of the affordability spectrum: Acne Studios and COS. Inspired options from a Canadian company that makes Korean bathhouse soap and an all-American fashion label helmed by same-name sisters-in-law round out the selections.

Check out all of the options floating around in my online shopping cart this week…

1. Veronica Beard Clara Silk Shirtdress, $550.00
This playful take on the classic shirtdress is much more interesting than your usual office fare, but no less appropriate. The asymmetrical placket and ruched hemline add just enough spice to keep things interesting. It’s from the Veronica Beard Resort 2016 collection, and currently available for pre-order.

2. Everlane Waffle Knit Tunic, $135.00
Everlane’s new waffle knits – available in both tunic and cropped turtleneck options – remind me of that HOPE sweater that practically broke Pinterest. Except a lot less expensive. And made from merino wool rather than cotton blend. Kind of a no-brainer, right?

3. Acne Studios Obin Ankle Strap Sandal, $690.00
Leave it to Acne. The sculpted metallic heel on these sandals is crazy and amazing, but somehow vibes completely neutral. As in, these heels will go with, and instantly upgrade, just about any outfit. They are from the Resort collection and currently available for pre-order.

4. Binu Binu Seshin Korean Scrub Soap, $18.00
I think this might just be the cure to flaky mid-winter skin. This fragrance-free soap is handmade in Canada from all-natural, organic ingredients. The eco-friendly exfoliating black sesame seeds are paired with anti-oxidant rich boricha tea, Australian washed blue clay, and an assortment of oils to exfoliate and cleanse. Sounds heavenly.

5. COS Lace Detail Bra, $35.00, and Knickers, $9.00
Stockholm-based COS is a secret goldmine for lovers of minimalist lingerie and bargain prices. This Instagram-worthy bra and knickers duo is available in black, navy, and blush pink.
