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: For those scared (but eager) to try out a summery print, this vintage top is a vibrant piece to get started. Bold? Sure. Bright? Yeah. But this button-down is a well-structured garment that echoes the wearable paint splatter patterns seen in pieces from shops such as H&M and J. Crew, making it approachable while still plenty daring.
Where: Eclectic Monkey Emporium
Style It: Give the loose-fitting top a solid foundation with high-waist dark jeans from Goldsign Virtual and Giuseppe Zanotti Swarovskil-embellished leather sandals. Play up the cool purples in the splashy print with pinks, blues, and greens. Accessorize with a pair of oversize, round-frame Cutler and Gross sunglasses in an ombre fuchsia, Pierre Hardy's electric blue suede shoulder bag, and a bracelet from Aurélie Bidermann a turquoise Mother of Pearl eagle charm.
