What We're Buying: Neutral Bags, Pretty Dresses and Pops of Neon

Posted on

We may or may not have done so much online shopping recently, our credits cards are hot to the touch. Below, we rounded up a few of the things we found so irresistible, we had to buy them — and share them with you.

And we’ll happily return the favor. If you Tweet (@StyleWatchMag) or Instagram (@peoplestylewatchmag) a picture of the item and include #PSWshops, we’ll can showcase our favorites. And make sure to share shots of yourself wearing the item here; you might just see the latest addition to your closet on the site!

Style News Editor Alex Apatoff: My parents were in town last week, which meant that my mother wanted to do her annual tour of all the historic landmarks: Bergdorf Goodman, Saks, Henri Bendel …

While helping her restock her closet, I happened to spy this adorable Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. crossbody, which filled the “small neutral bag”-sized void in my wardrobe. And since we had a discount code (and because I’m a poor struggling writer in N.Y.C.) my mom generously treated me to it as an early birthday present.

Then I used the money I didn’t spend on the bag to nab these cute Rebecca Minkoff sandals during their friends and family sale last weekend (if you aren’t checking our sales roundups on Fridays, you’ve got to start!) So now I feel like I’ve basically raided Minkoff’s entire closet.

Photo editor Alissa Rosenhaft: I haven’t been able to get this one Anthropologie dress out of my head since I saw it on Dianna Agron last year. I missed my chance while it was in stores, but I was determined to find something similar (and hopefully less spendy) for this spring.

I’m known as something of an online shopping ninja among the PEOPLE StyleWatch girls, so I was psyched to find this cute lookalike on the Dorothy Perkins site — on sale for just $35. I’m going to wear it in hopes that it will force the weather to get spring-ier. That will work, right?

Associate editor Brittany Talarico: With the warm weather finally hitting N.Y.C, I’m excited to bring brights back into my wardrobe. And when the pop of neon green on these Vince Camuto sandals caught my eye during a weekend shopping trip, I couldn’t say no.

The neutral base color goes with all my summer dresses, so they were definitely worth the price ($117.95.) Plus, I just joined the fabulous team at and wanted to treat myself! Next stop: pedicure, so I can wear these ASAP!
