Personal Shopping: What We’re Looking to Score from our Collections Designers
Have we told you how excited we are about Collections? Oh, we have. Right. But, we’re, like, wish-listing the crap out of it—true story. Here are the things that are on the tippy-top of our lists from each of the four featured designers.
Erica: “So, I just chopped my hair off (again), and I’m kind of obsessed with the idea of big earrings—but ones that don’t feel too glitzy-dangly, if you know what I mean. Basically, these brass ones, in a nutshell.”
Claire: “I’ve been contemplating trying to bring back the hoop earring for awhile now. (I refused to leave the house without them from 2000 to 2002.) These ones feel less Christina Aguilera-esque than the ones I wore in high school—which is a good thing.”
Erica: “I don’t wear a lot of colorful clothes—but I DO heart a colorful bag. The blue, textured flap on this one is so enticing. And seasonless!”
Claire: “I go nuts for a good cardholder and this little guy is perfect for holding my ID and my metrocard—both of which are way too hard to find if I put them in a wallet with all the other stuff.”
Erica: “Ah, tights—I’m already sick of ‘em. This winter, I vow to wear pants more often. Ideally these pants, with a black turtleneck sweater.”
Claire: “I’ve been on a real navy kick lately, and I’m especially loving it paired with black. I’m dying to wear this super easy little number with black tights and booties—and maybe a necklace layered under the collar?”
Erica: “When you throw on this dress and a big, chunky necklace, it looks like you tried. But, see, you didn’t at all. That’s the dream, in my mind.”
Claire: “I can’t stop thinking about this plaid skirt. The color combo is so freaking good and keeps it from feeling too much like a catholic-school uniform.”
