You know that feeling you get when you come across a beautiful shoe, a statement piece of jewelry or an article of clothing that stops you in your tracks? Take a look at my Five Friday Finds and be prepared to get those chills of excitement!

As featured in the SS’20 lookbook, this SOLD OUT couture parachute tee dress by Off White had me searching the ENTIRE Internet. Cut for a loose fit, the maxi silhouette features a contrast trim, asymmetric straps and side ruching. You can pair this unique maxi over a bandeau top and heels as shown for a dressier look or dress it down with a plain white tee and sneakers.

Pat McGrath’s MatteTrance™ lipstick is not only richly pigmented it evokes screen siren glamour with every application. The color, Deep Void 210 is a deep blackened purple that will cause heads to turn every time you step out with it on. Turn up a subtle makeup look or vamp out this spring.

Exclusive at Net-A-Porter is this mixed media skirt from emerging South Korean designer Andersson Bell. This beautifully pleated satin midi skirt has a kilt-like wool-tweed overlay that can be adjusted at the waist to alter the fit. It is the perfect example of how the label contrasts textures in order to rework a classic silhouette. Pair with a button down for a more traditional look or bodysuit to accentuate the skirts flowiness.

Alexandre Vauthier has such a unique and artful approach to footwear and these slingback sandals are the perfect example. The ‘Penelope’ sandal, made in Italy comes in both black organza and pink satin. The 100mm stiletto features dramatic ruffled trims that beg to be shown off. Pair with a mini dress, pencil skirt or cropped pants.

Every girl deserves a pair of wings and these Mignonne Gavigan “Madeline” statement earrings fit the bill. These black and gold, leather backed beauties are hand-beaded with sequins AND crystals. Switch things up by purchasing the white and gold pair as well.
