On weekends and vacations, I pretty much live in dresses from Réalisation—from '90s-inspired micro minis like this one to long floral silhouettes.
Réalisation Christy Dress ($160)
Chanel is always a great investment. Whether it's the two-tone slingback heels I bought a few years back, the quilted 2.55 bag I picked up a decade ago, or vintage pieces I've found in Paris, Chanel is always in heavy rotation in my wardrobe because it truly never goes out of style.
Chanel Slingbacks ($875)
Totême is the brand I'm gravitating to for pieces that feel minimal and luxe all at the same time.
Totême Priola Shirt ($210)
"These are the only sunglasses I wear right now. They're incredibly well-made, don't feel like every other trendy pair on the market, and fit my small-ish face perfectly. The Row x Oliver Peoples is one of my favorite enduring collaborations."
Shop Oliver Peoples:
Oliver Peoples x The Row L.A. Sunglasses ($455)
"Hayward bags are so special. They manufacture right in New York, which is rare, and the co-founders are warm and delightful. I find myself wearing them constantly because they function as a 'special neutral' for me, meaning they go with anything, but aren't playing a supporting character in your outfit. They add dimension and visual interest to your look, yet are completely versatile. To me, that is the ideal balance to strike for a bag. Hayward nails it."
Hayward Mini Venetian Leopard Brocade Shopper Top Handle Bag ($790)
"I wear these jeans more than any other item in my wardrobe, so Agolde definitely gets first place."
Agolde Pinch Waist High Rise Kick Jeans ($178)
"There are always a few Rixo pieces in my rotation on any given season."
Rixo Georgia Skirt ($310)
"I love a good party outfit and, more often than not, mine involve something Jacuqemus."
Jacquemus Valoria Fringed Top ($276)
"I always turn to The Line by K for beautifully designed basics that make a simple jeans outfit feel special."
Shop The Line By K:
The Line By K James Asymmetric Jersey Top ($45)
"Though the shoes and bags are excellent, Staud's clothing doesn't get nearly the hype it deserves, IMHO. I'm slowly but surely filling my closet with its fun pieces."
Staud Luna Ruffled Cotton-Blend Poplin Blouse ($158)
"The Range is my new favorite brand for quality basics that will take you from day to night in style."
Shop The Range:
The Range Twist Ribbed Stretch Linen-Blend Tank ($145)
"On the weekends, I practically live in Dôen's breezy and effortless tops and dresses. Its vintage-inspired prints are so romantic and perfect for L.A. summers."
Dôen Rose Blouse ($145)
"Honestly, who doesn't love Reformation? Just when I think its stuff couldn't possibly get any cuter, it does."
Reformation Shelley Dress ($248)
"By Far shoes are slowly but surely taking over my closet, and that's fine by me. I'm particularly partial to all the square-toe sandals."
Shop By Far:
By Far Sonia Slides ($375)
"I am a Tibi girl through and through. I find everything from the blazers to the strappy sandals extremely elevated yet fun all at the same time."
Tibi Scott Snake-Effect Leather Sandals ($263)
"Ganni is another brand I find myself wearing and buying more than any other. The pieces, although sometimes overwhelming at first, somehow fit seamlessly into the rest of my wardrobe every time."
Ganni Ganni Blakely Zebra Print Silk Wrap Top ($415)
