Things you didn’t know you needed but will wonder how you lived without comprise this week’s top picks, from a genius way to erase those annoying white deodorant smudges, to a travel-ready makeup remover, to the blackest, best fitting-est skinny jeans out there, to a woven cross-body bag that holds everything you need and looks as stylish as can be. Lastly, an homage to the city we all love…in a hand-stitched pillow.
Celeste: Summer heat is in full swing and we all need a little extra deodorant right now. Keep one of these in your purse to avoid the impending white stains on your cute summer outfits! (Available at Kiskadee, $6)
Angela: Bioderma Sensibio H2O is a micellar makeup remover is perfect for all skin types. This airplane-friendly 3.4 oz size is a must-have travel companion. (Available at Bellacara, $6)
Ali: One of the hardest pieces to get into the shop was the pure black Good American “Good Legs” (aka skinny jeans). Black skinny jeans are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. In general they are slimming, season-less, and versatile. Wear with sandals, sneakers, and under boots! Good American black skinny jeans in particular are even better. They are as solid black as you can get — no fade here! Super comfortable due to the Good American high-rise, reinforced belt loops, and stretch. They just arrived and they will be flying off the shelves! P.S., the cropped version is also available! (Available at TSALT, now only $149)
Elizabeth: Clare V has designed the perfect sized cross-body bag. It can fit a phone, wallet, sunglasses, and whatever else you might need for a day of walking around. It is perfect for travel and comes in different colors and designs; the new Woven Midi Sac is our favorite. (Available at The Hive, $345)
Amy: Feeling especially sweet on our city these days and happy to have so much in our shop that celebrates Alexandria. This hand-embroidered Catstudio pillow is particularly special in the way it captures all of the things that make Alexandria so unique. Plus, each piece is literally stitched by hand, which takes about a week, and makes each pillow a one-of-a-kind work of art. (Available at Red Barn Mercantile, $196)
