Style News Editor Alex Apatoff: There’s nothing I love more about marriage than making deals. For instance, I negotiated this AllSaints leather jacket (that I’ve had my eye on forever) in exchange for sitting patiently through an experimental rock concert on Saturday night for my husband.
No, it’s not cheap. But I’ve been patiently scouring the internet for one I prefer, and I keep returning to this one — the quilted shoulders and fitted shape are feminine details that set it apart. And frankly, since time is money, I feel that I invested at least $500 worth of my life into faking interest at the show.
Senior Style Editor Zoë Ruderman: A year ago, I moved into an apartment in the East Village, and it’s only a slight exaggeration to say I’ve spent every day since searching for a factory cart coffee table. (What can I say? I love me some distressed wood and rustic furniture.)
I’ve stared longingly into the windows of Restoration Hardware at the $995 version they sell and devoted many hours on eBay looking for an affordable one. All to no avail. Then I went to the HomeGoods press preview last week and spotted the gem you see at left. For $249. It was the easiest three-figure purchase I’ve ever made.
Associate Photo Editor Lauren Lieberman: I am loving the animal-print trend, but only in small doses, so when I saw this tiger print bikini I just had to buy it.
This Vix Swim Cape Bikini has the perfect amount of fabric, complete with gold stitching and a little gold bar detail. It may be kind of steep at $180, but flattering bikinis are hard to come by and this will compliment my summer tan perfectly.
