HBT’s Closet Essentials

I have been knee-deep in fashion mags and blogs for the past couple weeks and I’m feeling inspired to freshen things up in my closet. Here’s what I’ve been thinking, or in other words, welcome to HBT’s wardrobe essentials.


A Sexy Dress

My friend Bea sent me a text with a snapshot she took of the below page from Paris Vogue with a note that read: “I think if you buy this dress, you’ll sell a lot of art.” Oh yeah, Bea. But seriously, now I’ve become obsessed with this sexy Oscar de la Renta number. On a less prohibitively expensive note, this plunging crimson DVF dress is pretty gorge too.


A Cozy Sweater 

Jeana Sohn and I were going nuts over this cozy look below (also from Paris Vogue). Makes me want to head to the beach wearing a fuzzy top (love this Zara sweater and this one from Isabel Marant or even better, vintage Missoni) with some denim cutoffs.


A Glittery Shoe

I have been crazed about the current Miu Miu collection and trying to distract myself from the glitter-covered shoes and sunglasses, as if attempting to forget that they exist so I won’t do any crazy impulse buying. Alternatively, Clare Vivier uncovered this glitter and suede ankle boot from Barney’s, which is less trendy and moderately less expensive than Miu Miu’s version. LOVE (image from Style.com‘s new print magazine – such a fun read!).


A Printed Pair of Pants

Spotted in the latest issue of American Vogue, I’m lusting after a pair of printed pants. I am thinking I would like to wear these J.Crew leopard capris with an oversize sweater and glitter ankle boots. And maybe a pair of red Miu Miu glitter sunglasses. Thoughts?
