item-90398-4e61646cb2d27-m.jpgThe style name for this Gina Michele handbag, “Almost Famous,” is a perfect pick since we’ve seen tons of LA celebs running about sporting a similar style. This style from Smashing Darling is eco-friendly, upcylced from vintage suede jackets with a cotton lining of vintage French postcard print. The suede fringe is all cut by hand, and the bag has a worn-in look.

Beth_Lauren_Spiky_necklace.jpgOur go-to winter uniform consists of a rotating cast of boots, skinny jeans, and cozy sweaters. But we like to add a special touch to the outfit with a statement necklace, like this edgy yet glam pick from Beth Lauren. Featuring square crystals and spikes together on a brass link chain, the Singapura necklace ($88) is the ultimate mix of feminine and fierce.

Alice_mccall_LWD_preview.jpgSay goodbye to the LBD - the new classic we’re spotting on everyone is the LWD (little white dress, that is). From the red carpet to the runways, white frocks are a tasteful and chic choice even in winter. We’ve been hunting for the perfect style for a while, and we think we finally found the one. This dress by Australian designer Alice McCall features a classic, flattering sweetheart silhouette layered under a lattice-look piece that adds some edge to the outfit. Draped chiffon at the skirt is slimming and feminine, and we love the black banded waistline that keeps things interesting.
