Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: We're not sure who originated the phrase "She'd look good in a potato sack," but some days we wish we were so lucky. If only everyone could sport a shapeless garment without worry that she would, instead, look like a sack of potatoes. Thankfully, local designer Joy Li has a flair for molding flowing pieces into ones that also flatter, as exemplified by her flora- and fauna-adorned Geisha top with bell sleeves and a scoop back.
Where: Studio Joy Li
Style It: Balance the airy top with a pair of Paul & Joe's dusty rose culottes and Reed Krakoff leather loafers. Accessorize with a sea blue and olive leather clutch from Rochas, Isabel Marant crystal skull earrings, a studded leather Miu Miu headband, and a malachite and bronze Pamela Love ring.
