Flower Power


Say what you will about Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala ensemble from Monday—Mrs. Doubtfire, is that you?—but mark my words, floral anything will be having its moment in the sun in coming months. Not that it hasn’t already been on the tip of everyone’s tongue:

1. Christopher Kane Floral-Print Hooded Sweatshirt: “You have to get this sweatshirt,” Elizabeth said on Wednesday, and get it I did. Express daily delivered by Net-A-Porter, right to my doorstep, within 24 hours. It is now (for now) the single most exciting piece of clothing hanging in my closet.

2. Melissa Odabash Barrie Macramé Cotton Dress: Call me crazy, but this is not just for the beach. If Jane Birkin taught me anything this week, it's that crochet is freaking cool, and you should wear it with a flower crown. And matching—in this case, black—underwear.

3. Lisa Marie Fernandez Jasmine Terry Bikini: I mean, how pretty is this color? And in terrycloth? On a side note: Nick saw Lisa Marie slip into Serge Normant for a blowout on Wednesday and text-blasted me: “Lisa Marie Fernandez is fucking FASHION,” “So glamorous,” “Like insane,” and, “Amazing dress. White lace Alaïa? Can you wear Alaïa? Please?” … Sure, give me your credit card.

4. 3.1 Phillip Lim Scout Small Cross Body Bag: OK, so you don’t want to spend $600 on a cotton sweatshirt. I don’t blame you—it’s kind of crazy—but sometimes you just HAVE TO HAVE something. A drawstring floral bag is much more justifiable; you can wear it all summer with your solids for a bit of tropical flair.

5. Diane von Furstenberg Andi Laser-Cut Leather Shorts: What is it about black leather that feels so right lately?! Tell me I’m not alone. I can’t get enough. I want to wear these low on the hips, with a slouchy white t-shirt, sleeves cuffed James Dean-style, minus the pack of Winstons. Oh, and maybe a matte red lip.

    So $600 on a backpack is better? ;) Well, at least the shorts seem must-have enough!

    Floral is really having its time right now (which I'm happy about!) I like that sweatshirt a lot but I would never spend 500 bucks on it...well, unless I was making a good amount of money, of course. I also really like the terrycloth swimsuit - the color is very flattering.

    Yes! That sweatshirt is to die for -- along with those shorts. I can just see right now: that sweatshirt paired with your pair of Ksubi cut-offs and off-white chucks. I'm just really into imagining outfits with other people's clothes.

    That sweatshirt IS amazing but the question is... for how long? I just know myself, such a seasonal piece excites me for maximum a month
