What to buy online this month – May 2021

Because online shopping doesn’t feel quite so naughty, does it

Sara Weinstock – Aurora 18K Yellow Diamond Huggies

Inspired by the goddess of sunrise, Aurora, these are the ultimate wear-anywhere, dress up or down earrings

Bottega Veneta – The Point Small Pouch

Just when you thought Bottega couldn’t get any better – they go and release a new collection totally different to the last and utterly more lust worthy, if that’s even possible. While this pouch might be small, it’s got a long strap so you can make it work for day and evening. Oh, and it comes in a range of colours – how can anyone possibly say no to that.

Lisa Maria Fernandez – Scalloped linen-blend top

Anything scalloped right now gets our vote and the fact that this comes from net-a-porter’s sustainable section only adds to the must-haveness. Boxy, lightweight and with cute buttons at the back, this is the ultimate Summer top.

Proenza Schouler Rondo stretch-knit ballet flats

Do we love them? Do we hate them? These stretch-knit flats, made with ribbed cuffs and cushioned footbeds are the ultimate Marmite shoes. If you are wondering – we love them.

Hankie Pankie Tables – Lemon Jug

While I can’t get home to Italy right now, I’ll settle for the next best thing which is a little taste of home with this gorgeous jug. Adorned with lemons and leaves, it reminds me of long lunches under the Tuscan sun where the wine pours long into the wee hours. 

Pierre Balmain dress from Vestaire Collective

There’s no doubt we all throw away way too many items of clothing, which is why I’m such a big fan of buying second hand, and for that, no-one is better than Vestaire Collective. They authenticate the items in-house and now even have a department in Hong Kong so you get your pieces, like this stunning checked dress, even quicker.

Cecilie Bahnsen – Celeste hawthorn embroidered smocked-taffeta dress

Forgive me bank balance, for I have sinned; I have fallen in love with yet another smocking dress from Cecilie Bahnsen. Cream with dots of yellow and grey, it’s fitted at the waist and billows at the bottom like the dress of dreams that it is.
