This week’s top picks list covers a range of items that worked on clients, on myself, or that simply caught my eye. Lots of well-made pieces, some on sale, at an assortment of price points, and in many colour options. Some of the items are available in petites. Happy browsing. 

  • Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Leather Crossbody Bag: If you like mini cross-body bags, this one is sublime. Well made and unique with the rope strap. All the colour options are nice. Personally, I like the citron best. Maximal.
  • Frye Ivy Low Lace: I have these fashion sneakers in white and pink and can't rave enough about them. Instant wardrobe workhorses. Extremely comfortable, beautifully made, flattering on the foot, and well suited to low volume feet. If the Adidas Stan Smith and Ecco Soft 7 sneaker are too wide for you - try these. They're sublime and well worth the price.
  • Kate Spade New York 'emerson place - small phoebe' quilted leather shoulder bag: A dressy chain-handle bag for Team Polished & Dressy. The bag does not close entirely up top, so consider yourself warned. I preferred the white, but the black is nice too. There's a smaller size that's simply darling.
  • Loft Flamingo Tassel Scarf: Fun Flamingo Fabness. It's acrylic but feels quite nice against the skin. The tassels create a much more polished effect than fringe, to my eye. This one followed me home and I've worn it quite a bit.
  • Rebecca Minkoff Unlined Whipstitch Feed Bag: Lightweight crossbody bag that moulds to your body. Very well made and casually chic. Does not close completely up top though.
  • Hinge Gentle Floral Scarf: Super soft scarf that drapes like a dream despite its polyester-rich content. The tassels are lilac in person and add a fun textured touch. Works well for warm and cool-toned skin types. I bought this to match my pink sneaks.
  • Ann Taylor Lantern Sleeve Sweater: Crisp, trendy and pretty. VERY soft and a gorgeous bright white. Easy to launder. Great for a chilly Spring day. Sleeves are longer than shown. Streamlined fit on the upper torso and arms, and boxy at the waist. FAB drape. Too short for long waists unless you wear a high rise. Lantern sleeves are subtle and will not overwhelm a small frame. I love this top, and wear it with my wide cropped jeans.
  • Ann Taylor Shirred Peplum Sweater: An off-white peplum that works on a shorter and regular waist. Torso defining, but forgiving on the waist and belly. Peplum is subtle. Fab layer under jackets. PRETTY.
  • Halogen Rosina Laser Cut Wedge Sandal: Extremely comfortable dressier wedges IF you can manage the heel height. Not good on high volume feet. Flattering on the foot. Elegant.
  • Madewell Plaid Tie-Back Top: Fun plaid tie top for broader shoulders and a smaller bust. Too short for a long waist unless worn with a high rise.
  • Chino By Anthropologie | Anthropologie Relaxed Chino Pants: Fab chino for a curvier bottom half. Works as well on straighter body types, although you might need to size down.
  • Halogen Tie Front Skirt: Super cute skirt that suits a range of body types. Straighter figures should size down.
  • Halogen Fringe Tweed Vest: Great Summer vest for a long body or Team Tall. Might need to size down.
  • Halogen Soft Utility Jacket: A polished, and dressier utility jacket that can work as well for the office as it does in relaxed settings. Well suited to apple shapes, inverted triangles, and rectangles. Works well on a larger bust. Great on petites in the petite size.
  • Halogen Ruched Drape Front Tank: Best on a smaller bust, and works well on both straighter and curvier figures. Nice underarm coverage.
  • Halogen Tie Sleeve Sweatshirt: Maximal Sweatshirt Fabness. The sleeves are heavy and long so best on long arms.
  • Halogen Peplum Top: Super cute gingham top that's dressier in person. It has a little stretch and is quite fitted. Works surprisingly well on a petite apple with a large bust because the substantial fabric glides over the contour of the body.
  • Halogen Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress: Fab dress or tunic for Team Tall. The sleeves are bold so you have to be okay with that. Runs big so size down at least one size.
  • Trouvé Tie Front Tank: Good tie top that suits a range of body types. The tie does not create a bulky effect on the midsection. Good length for longer torsos. All the colours are nice. Nice underarm coverage.
  • Michael Stars Smocked Yoke Peasant Top: A peasant top that works on most body types. Great look with bell-bottom jeans.
  • Michael Stars Stripe Crop Sweatshirt: A cropped striped top in a dainty fabric to wear with high-waisted jeans. Quite slouchy, but its cropped length adds structure.
  • Caslon Linen Shirtdress: These linen dresses look best in the stripes and in the blue. They might run a size big. Nice length, and can be worn as a dress, or over cropped straights. Perfectly breezy and covered for Summer if you are at peace with the crease.
  • Tory Burch Sawyer Needlepoint Shoulder Bag: GORGEOUS Polished Boho. Beautifully made, and as fab in the solid red and turquoise. Lies flat against the body when worn on the shoulder.
  • Persaman New York Iris Shoulder Bag Tote: A happy Summer tote with an organizational inner.
  • SAN DIEGO HAT Pineapple Scarf: A Summery scarf made of a perfectly crisp, crinkled cotton. The tassels are more grey in person. I didn't like how tassel-heavy the scarf was, so I hacked off every other tassel, and now it's more suited to my style. LOVE the citron, and complements a citron bag. It's bulky though, so consider yourself warned. Available in turquoise in stores.
  • Caslon Stripe Linen Blend Scarf: A slubby linen scarf that works well on cool-toned complexions. Drapes well and isn't bulky.
  • Zara Limited Edition Floral Necklace Details: A spectacular floral garden of bling.
  • Caslon Embroidered Trim Shift Dress: Super duper, very lightweight and pretty Summery dress. Good on an apple, inverted triangle and rectangular body type. Will work on a subtle hourglass too. Good on a larger bust. Read the rave reviews.
  • Michael Stars Lace Yoke Gauze Top: Boho Lite blouse that suits a long neck and smaller bust. Forgiving on the midsection.
  • Rebecca Minkoff 'Brooke' Ankle Strap Pump: A great pair of dark blue red shoes with a comfortable fit and stable heel. Soft suede that's kind to you feet. Elegant on the foot. Best on low and regular volume feet. On trend.
