Every Wednesday 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: There's no beating around the gorgeously manicured bush, we are Orla Kiely fangirls. The Irish designer's bedding will be available stateside at Bed, Bath & Beyond in May, and spotting her spring accessories at Frances only reminded us of our desire to surround ourselves with her simple, naturalistic aesthetic, which often incorporates patterns of plants and wildlife. Out of all the carry-worthy loot, the favorite we spotted was a soft leather version of Kiely's supple, sturdy Willow tote in a barely-there pink blush accented with tangerine handles and zipper pull.
Where: Frances Vintage
Style It: Ground the light, bright bag with a gently ruffled tank dress in navy silk from Thakoon Addition and Matt Bernson raffia wedge sandals (which Frances also carries). Add a Kenneth Jay Lane caterpillar brooch and baby pink Marc by Marc Jacobs heart-shape drop earrings for a dash of summery playfulness.
