Claire's Obsession, My Favorite Things
New Feature: My Favorite Things
By Claire

Hey!
So starting today, The Fashion Bomb will debut a new feature called: My Favorite Things. Ever wonder what a stylist demands in their closet? Or even what your fellow readers can’t live without? This feature will tell you just that.
To bless the first installment, I decided: Why not start with me?
I’ve already revealed a few of my obsessionsCole Haan Nike Air shoes, Oh Deer shoes, and Fantasie’s Smoothing Strapless–but my summer wardrobe invites a whole new slew of items:

Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses are a must for a day at work or a night on the town, accessorized with colorful bangles, cascading necklaces, and hoop earrings. For the weekend, j’adore my James Perse Tees for their amazing fit (nevermind the pricetag) or throwing on a breezy American Apparel Jersey dress for a day in the park. With my recent foot surgery, flats are still necessary, so I stick to saucy gladiator styles. With bags, I go with neutrals, but spice it up with metallics or a pop of yellow. And can’t forget my Gucci shades!!
My picks: Gucci Oversize Square Sunglasses, $270; Enamel Bamboo Hoop Earrings, $18; J.Crew Cashmere Shrunken Shawl Cardigan, $120; Diane Von Furstenberg Justin Wrap Dress, $243; Exotic Bangles, $12; Elliott Lucca Carvela Shopper, $328; James Perse Vintage V-Neck Tee, $55; Tory Burch Suzi Straw Croco Clutch, $300; American Apparel Fine Jersey T Dress, $26; Katie Costello “Lauren” Necklace, $270; Jeffrey Campbell Jaya Sandal, $98.

This isn’t a beauty blog, but I still have my summer makeup picks! A short list:
I’m a Caribbean Girl so I like to keep it colorful with pops of unexpected shades like Maybelline’s Blue Royal Great Lash mascara, a neutral eye with a hint of Nars Colored Eyeliner on the lower lid, or even a fun MAC eyeshadow. I favor a neutral lip with lipglass like MAC’s Nymphette, and also keep the sweat and shine at bay with Shue Uemera blotting papers. Gucci Rush’s top notes of Gardenia, Fressia, and Patchouli provide a sensual burst of fragrance.
My picks: Gucci Rush Eau de Toilette Spray, $60; Nars Colored Eyeliner in Turquoise Blue, $20; Maybelline Royal Blue Great Lash Mascara, $5; MAC Eyeshadow, $14 each; Shu Uemura Blotting Papers, $12; MAC Lipglass in Nymphette, $14.
What are some of your favorite things?
Smootches!

    There are tons of things I can’t live without! But at the top are http://www.missgetlucky.com and polyvore.com. I get lots of inspiration from polyvore and fabulous deals on some of my favorite designers (like Anna Sui and Adam + Eve) at Miss Get Lucky online! Check out the Chez Philippe dress by Anna Sui!
