The Fashion Magpie Crease Release The Laundress

This, That, and the Other: Wrinkle Release, Perfect Flats, + Glow Drops.

Getting back into the swing of things after a long holiday weekend can be rough.  Below — some pretty lil thangs to ease you into the work week…

Pick No. 1: Wrinkle Release.

I ordered — and love — my upgraded handheld steamer (I also own a Rowenta iron and it has changed my life), but my mom told me recently that when she’s in a bind, she uses Crease Release by the Laundress.  Only a few days later, the organization experts behind Imagine It Done recommended Cold Iron’s wrinkle release solution.  I think I’ll give them both a whirl!

Pick No. 2: Cecilie Bahnsen.

OMG OMG — I am head over heels for the dramatic shapes of designer Cecilie Bahnsen.  I’d love this velvet bow-shouldered beauty for holiday parties (imagine with trim-cut cigarette pants!) or this embellished sheer peplum confection.

Pick No. 3: DVF White Flats.

White boots were A Thing this past season, and while I couldn’t bring myself to invest in that particular trend (too practical — as a New Yorker, I felt like I was always traipsing through muddy slush!), I am in love with white shoes for summer.  These smart, pointed-toe slingbacks are PERFECTION.  They look like they might be Celine or Jil Sander, but they’re $228!

Pick No. 4: Dr. Barbara Sturm Glow Drops.

I referenced this in passing in a recent post, but has anyone used the line Dr. Sturm before?  I’m especially intrigued by these glow drops, which purport to “transform and revitalize tired, dull skin and restore its radiance.”  The very-in-the-know blogger Bradley Agather uses a bunch of Sturm’s products, so I’m officially intrigued.

Pick No. 5: Apiece Apart Sweater.

How funky-perfect is this Apiece Apart sweater, now on sale in Goop’s incredible sale section?!  (This and this are also hanging out in my cart.)

Pick No. 6: Wide-Brim Hat.

I love this fringe-edged J. Crew hat — and what a great price, if you can’t quite pony up for the ultimate.  (Also love this top from J. Crew’s new arrivals.)

Pick No. 7: The Heart Pouch.

How fun are these heart-print pouches?  They would make such a darling gift — a gal can never have enough pouches.  (Or, at least this gal can’t.)

Pick No. 8: The Gingham Bucket Bag.

This happy gingham bag is such a fun punchy accent piece for your summer wardrobe — and the shape is so on point RN.

Pick No. 9: The White Maxi.

This maxi is nothing short of stunning.  Would make an elegant dress for a bride-to-be…or a married woman like myself.  HA!

Pick No. 10: The Bow Sandal.

These make me so happy!  I like the idea of wearing them with my favorite joveralls and a frilly white blouse.

  1. Hi, first off I started reading your blog a few months ago and absolutely love it! Your writing is lyrical, beautiful, and a really a step above the prose found on most other blogs. Secondly, I just wanted to say how much I love when you include the actual pictures of the items you’re loving. I imagine it’s probably a lot more work than including the link alone, but as someone who often peruses your blog while on a break at work, the links are usually blocked by our IT dept while the pictures are not and it is such a treat to be able to see the items themselves! Thanks for the great content.

    1. Hi Bayley – Thank you so much for the sweet note! I’m so glad you’ve found me, and that my writing resonates. Also – thanks for the note about including the pictures. I’ll keep this in mind!! Sometimes I do avoid them so that I can focus on writing, but I completely understand where you’re coming from and will work to include more!! xo

  2. I’m late to this party but have to sing the praises of The Laundress Crease Release. I never travel without it to help freshen things!

  3. So much goodness here! I am intrigued by the Laundress’ Crease Release … adding it to my next Amazon order. The Cecilie Bahnsen pieces you selected are perfect — I hadn’t heard of her before, but I’m in love!

    Who knew about Goop’s amazing sale section?! That Lisa Marie Fernandez dress is so good; wish it hadn’t sold out!

    I LOVE Delfonics pouches and have several that I bought in Tokyo … this collab with Sézane is too adorable!

    1. I’m smitten with Cecilie Bahnsen (also love the name Cecilie, so I’m partial anyway) — so dramatic. I wish I had some sort of fancy holiday affair to plan for…


  4. I came across those pouches on my Instagram feed (…as an aside, how do they know the things I like???) – they’re darling, and I’m so close to getting one! There’s no such thing as having too many pouches!!
    And those bow sandals! They’re so adorable.

    1. Totally agree. I have pouches out to wazoo and still find myself in need of more, especially with a little one who has so many little things! Those sandals…!! xo
