What We're Buying: Bright Dresses, Fun Sunglasses and More!

What are we buying this week? What aren’t we buying? Below, we rounded up a few of the things we found so irresistible, we had to buy them — and share them with you.

Style Director Andrea Lavinthal: I promised myself that I wouldn’t buy any more summer dresses (I have some in my closet with the tags still on). But then I spotted this magenta number in the window of Club Monaco and before you can say, “Amex bill” I was walking out of the store with a shopping bag.

It’s light and breezy (a must with the heat wave we’re having right now in N.Y.C.) and looks cute at brunch with neutral flat sandals and a matching belt or at work with wedges or platforms and a blazer. In fact, I’m wearing the dress as I type this with the style department’s favorite black-and-white Zara heels.

Style News Editor Alex Apatoff: Did someone say N.Y.C. heat wave? I’m feeling it. And I’m blaming it for any unnecessary spending I’m doing these days.

For example: These fun Juicy Couture cat-eyes that I bought in a moment of weakness after leaving my cheapies in a cab. The 95° humidity (and perhaps that glass of rosé) led me to believe that it was time to treat myself to a pricier pair. After all, if you added up the cost of all the $5 Ray-Ban knockoffs I’ve abandoned or broken, they’d probably add up to one nice pair.

So now I have these. And they’re sassy. And I’m staying indoors before I spend any more.

Editorial Assistant Heather Viggiani: Tkees are like the new Havaianas: they are from Brazil, celebrities love them and I have no idea how to pronounce the brand name properly!

I always end up wearing my nude heels, so I figured a flip-flop version was in order. (Pretty soon, I’m going to have an entire nude shoe wardrobe.) I went for the patent finish for a dressier feel and I especially like that they won’t look as mismatched on my commute to-and-from work as my other casual shoes.

Now that I know these sandals are so comfy, I might have to get a few more pairs — they come in so many colors and finishes!
