Have you bought anything you loved lately? In the PEOPLE StyleWatch offices, the answer to that question is usually “Yes.” Below, check out the dresses two of our editors are loving, Heidi Klum’s “fantasy” purchase that she’s living in these days and the silliest shirt anyone’s ever worn to work here.

Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor: Disclaimer: I didn’t actually buy this dress. My mom bought for it me. And I’m convinced my mom is the best department store shopper on the East Coast. She always goes to Lord & Taylor, Macy’s and Bloomingdales after the holidays and makes out huge at the sales. And she always has a coupon on hand.
One of her latest finds: This Kensie dress, which she somehow nabbed for an additional 20 percent off the sale price of $29.99. The leather paneling makes it feel dressy for work and it can also double as a cocktail dress for any upcoming events. And I love that my mom knows to buy me leather-embellished pieces for my wardrobe.

Heidi Klum: I like to be sexy at night, so I’m really into fishnet stockings right now. I’m kind of matching everything with fishnet stockings, like boots. Actually guys, I think they always love boots, especially when they’re over-the-knee. I have black, I have red. I think guys always love boots, stockings, that sort of stuff. It’s like a fantasy thing. And sometimes you have to be that fantasy for them!

Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor: Please forgive the sad photo of this dress — I was in no condition, facially, to take a picture of myself and put it on the internet today. It’s actually really lovely and detailed in person, as you can see in the zoom photos on Amazon — the lace detailing that winds around the back is very elegant, the sheer yoke is unexpectedly pretty and the cut is incredibly flattering. I can’t wait to wear it with my most painful gold sandals to an upcoming rehearsal dinner.
But the best part about this dress? I got it for more than half off at the big sale going on at Weston Wear‘s store down the street from my apartment. The only thing I love more than a great LBD is one that makes me look fabulous and costs basically nothing.

Whitney Little, Associate Producer: Look, as much as I enjoy looking like a presentable adult, sometimes I forgo all of that and rock a cat unicorn sweatshirt instead. We’ve all been there, right? … Right?
This Forever 21 top was a gift, because some people in my life just get me. I basically live in it on the weekends, but I forgot the meaning of “professionalism” last week and decided to wear it into the office, prompting compliments from half the staff and concerned looks from the rest.
It’s unfortunately sold out (how could it not be?), but if your closet is in need of this classic wardrobe staple, just Google “cat unicorn sweatshirt” and I’m sure you can track down something just as glorious. Actually, just Google it anyway. You’ll be glad you did.
