DKNY Dress - Won Hundred Tank Top - Beautyblender Cleanser - Coyote Negro Bracelet - Intentionally Blank Shoes

This week I discovered what has to be the absolute easiest way to get makeup brushes squeaky clean. It’s travel-friendly solid cleanser that is gentle and yet really works. It’s amazing how something that simple can make your week.

In fashion shopping news, it’s all about modern takes on classic wardrobe options. Like an LBD with downtown edge, and a classically inspired sleek silver link bracelet.

Here are all of the online shopping picks that turned my head this week…

1. DKNY Deconstructed Pleated Wool Midi Dress, $695.00
The drop waist and pleated curtain-like details are unconventional, but the look is tamed by the use of a sophisticated wool/ silk blend fabric. This is the place where work-appropriate and seriously cool meet.

2. Won Hundred Malina Tank, $135.00
Cotton tanks are a spring layering staple. This version from Copenhagen-based Won Hundred gets extra visual interest from a curved asymmetrical hem, rounded side slits, and crisscross back detail. No brainer.

3. Beautyblender Blendercleanser Solid, $16.00
If you are still using baby shampoo, dishwashing soap, or facial cleanser to clean your makeup brushes, stop. This solid cleanser melts away gunky makeup in an instant, leaving your brushes squeaky-clean and free of any skin-irritating residue. Plus, it doesn’t contain parabens, sulfates, or phthalates, and is handcrafted in the USA. This is my absolute favorite beauty discovery this month.

4. Coyote Negro Links Bracelet, $460.00
This sterling silver bracelet, designed by Melissa Hern├índez, was inspired by traditional Mexican men’s bracelets. True to the label’s focus on exploring jewelry as a sculptural wearable element, this piece effortlessly melds the classic inspiration with a thoroughly modern aesthetic edge. This will look great with everything from simple cashmere sweaters to daring minimalist designs.

5. Intentionally Blank Mantle Heels, $200.00
A new pair of black shoes is always useful, right? The modern vintage look of this particular pair is what immediately appealed to me. The stacked heel and ankle strap combo – at once on-trend and ultra-comfortable – sealed the deal.
