Our dream: waltzing through April and May in the perfect Burberry trench coat. Reality: yeah, right. As an alternative, check out this tan oversized trench, which comes at a fraction of the price but still brings a high-end aesthetic. Plus, we’re into the idea of making this spring jacket less fitted and girly, and taking a more boyish approach with a roomy fit, and a bloused look when belted.
Let’s talk cash: We’ve been trying to be more money-conscious lately, so we decided to take a peek into our closets to see how we’ve spent our paychecks. Here, we dish on the most expensive things we own (and why we bought them and whether we love/regret the expense), as well as the cheapest styles that are so awesome, they’re priceless.

Put on a seersucker jacket and some argyle, and all of a sudden, you’re unwittingly summing up a whole world of boarding school, the Hamptons, polo matches, and sailing (on that note, check out our intro to Lilly Pulitzer). Somehow, New Zealand designer Karen Walker has managed to make a jewelry collection that’s undeniably prepster, but stops far short of that manufactured-authentic look. Charm bracelets and necklaces come with chunky chains, bright colors, and outlined surfaces to give the accessories a younger and fresher feel. Charming, no? [Gargyle] Keep reading »
