Woody Allen once memorably said that relationships are like sharks-they must keep moving forward or else they die-a sentiment that's perfectly applicable to editors too. While the vicious fishes need oxygen to live and relationships require progression to thrive, we're compelled to hunt for the latest looks, trends, and products for our survival. The good part about being driven by a force so instinctive and powerful that it's probably coded in our DNA (along with a fondness for hyperbole) is that we discover loads of great stuff for you, dear readers, along the way. Today, we're delighted to share a few of those fabulous finds, ranging from a life-changing, lash-boosting mascara to a must-read book, in this month's installment of WWW Hearts. Sure, it's no Shark Week or Annie Hall, but hopefully this roundup will delight and entertain you nevertheless!
Senso Wilma Platform Booties ($160)
There are loads of Australian imports we love- Camilla and Marc, Nobody, Zimmermann-now we have one more to add to that list: Senso. The super cute shoe line has so many must-buy styles for fall, like these adorable Wilma ankle booties, which are available in cheetah or black. But don't take our word for it; check out all the options, like the wedge Acacia, the flat zippered Laden, the studded Tina...
Imperial Bedrooms ($13) by Bret Easton Ellis
Full disclosure: we are huge Bret Easton Ellis fans (we have a little collection of autographed books at home), so we might be a little biased. That said, the author's latest novel-a gripping, semi-sequel to his first published work, Less Than Zero-is truly a must-buy. It's eerie, insane, and completely haunting, no wonder we couldn't put it down!
Maje Turin Eyelet Cotton-Blend Dress ($235)
Does Maje's designer Judith Milgrom ever create anything that's not perfect? Frankly, we don't think so. Just take this drop-waist mini dress, for example: it's the perfect combination of sweet and sexy, ideal for summer days and nights, and completely easy to wear. We adore it so much; we just might have to buy two!
Maybelline New York The Falsies by Volum' Express Mascara ($8, available in drugstores now)
Dearest readers, it gives us great pleasure to finally present Maybelline's thrilling new mascara: The Falsies. After a month of testing it out every day, we can tell you that this product is a serious game changer. The curved brush and Pro-Keratin fiber-enriched formula is fantastic and gives you tremendously full and long lashes-people keep asking if we have extensions! All in all, it's so amazing we can't stand the thought of going a single day without it and suggest you stock up too! (On a side note: if you can't find it at your local store, it will be available on Maybelline's website in the next couple of weeks, so check back soon.)
Prada B.Y.O. Bag ($295, available at Prada boutiques)
The Who What Wear office issued a collective sigh the second we saw these lovely summer totes from Prada. Ultra-lightweight (each one only weighs five ounces!) and totally memorable thanks to the gorgeous prints (all from the Prada archives), the bags will add a much-needed dose of boldness to your warm-weather basics. Check out all eight styles at the Prada boutique near you!
Michael Kors Watches Black Oversized Watch ($195)
Big gold Rolex watches are sure to have a comeback when Wall Street part deux hits theaters in September, but until then we'll enjoy this sleek and sexy style from Michael Kors. The black resin wristband is oh-so Chanel, but without the crazy price tag, while the generously proportioned face will add a touch of masculinity to your most girly garb.
Rag & Bone/JEAN Skinny Jeans ($175) in Red
This spring, Rag & Bone launched their new collection of basics-jeans, shirts, and knits-including these impeccably cut skinnies. The bright red is festive, perfect for all your summer barbecues and outdoor movie nights!
New Face: Bambi Northwood-Blyth
The latest model on our radar is the wonderfully named Bambi Northwood-Blyth, an Aussie stunner with wildly strong eyebrows, piercing blue eyes, and a chiseled face that reminds us of Brooke Shields. While we love her editorials in Australian magazines like Russh, our fingers are crossed that she makes a splash during New York Fashion Week.
J. Crew Chambray Bikini Top ($50) and Bikini Briefs ($44)
The lovely team at J.Crew never fails to delight us with their fresh takes on classic American style, which is why we adore this chambray suit so much. The mid-blue hue is perfectly on trend, and the timeless cut is sure to flatter a wide range of bodies-this bikini is a must-buy!
Fresh Fringe: Sienna Miller
It's funny how a small change can make you see someone in a whole new light. Take Sienna Miller's recent trim, for example: her new blunt fringe is flirty yet strong, and totally transforms her look. (The perfect shade of blonde doesn't hurt too!) It's enough to make us rethink our own cut and color.
