What are we buying this week? What aren’t we buying? Below, we rounded up a few of the things we found so irresistible, we had to buy them — and share them with you.

Fashion Intern Sarah Ball: While walking through the streets of Soho last weekend, I was drawn to a display of beautiful jewelry. I couldn’t resist touching the delicate gold and silver pieces designed by Guenevere Rodriguez. They were so dainty yet powerful.
The designer herself started chatting me up about the meaning behind each piece. After we had been talking for nearly 25 minutes, she suggested the Love Knot ring for me. She designed it with the intention to open hearts and draw love to those who wear it.
After that, I was hooked. Its simplicity allows me to wear it alone or stack it with other rings. In fact, I can’t wait to go back to Guenevere’s Prince Street outlet and purchase a few more to add to my new collection!
Style News Editor Alex Apatoff: When the words “Net-a-Porter clearance sale” came up on my screen last week, I had a sinking feeling my July budget was done for.
And when I clicked over to the site, I saw that the simple, streamlined Michael Michael Kors dress that I’ve had in my shopping cart since the beginning of time was still available — and part of the clearance sale. I couldn’t have snapped it up quickly enough (good timing, as my size sold out shortly thereafter, though there are still a few left).
I love that it’s easy enough to wear with basic black pumps, but it will really come alive with a variety of accessories — neon clutches, purple heels, sparkling earrings — and it will look just as crisp and cool with black tights in the fall. Plus, there’s still money left in my July budget. I’m doing a victory lap around my cubicle right now.
Writer-Reporter Jackie Fields: I must confess, I could do without summer. Humidity is my Achilles’ heel. Because of that, every time I open my closet to put together an ensemble, especially one for a special event, I launch into full panic mode.
But, I had an “A ha!” moment when I was combing through the racks at Topshop and realized that their beach cover ups can seriously double as cute outfits! That’s when I picked up this gorgeous lace romper in soft orange. I know what you’re thinking. Rompers are still relevant? Rompers can actually look polished? Yes, and yes. Here is your proof.
Around Labor Day, I will likely tuck this piece away never to be seen again, but for now I’m relishing the compliments I received when I debuted it during a post-wedding party with perfectly tanned skin, a bandeau and wedges to boot
