I shop all day for a living, and believe me when I say it's both a blessing and a curse. Since I'm constantly reporting on the newest arrivals and latest trends to hit the market, I've become acutely aware of the holes in my own closet—and much more likely to jump at the opportunity to make a new purchase that fills them. I'm not a perfect shopper, though, and just like anyone else, I succumb to my fair share of impulse buys along with more thought-out investments. Impulsive or not, though, I've recently added nine new items to my wardrobe that I'm so excited to share with you here.

My style is an eclectic mix of vintage and new, and I have a penchant for edgier styling ideas, which means you'll find a good mix of statement and casual pieces here. From bright sweaters that command attention to fun accessories like delicate pearl hoops and glam crystal earrings, the items run the gamut but have won me over in equal amounts. Ready to see which shopping picks this fashion editor is just over the moon about right now? Keep reading to shop ten of my newest fashion acquisitions and to see how I've styled each of them.

In a place like L.A., I don't often get to break out my largest sweaters, but this cropped turtleneck is perfect for in-between weather and is so fun to style with my more toned-down pieces.

I never thought that I would own ballet flats after my short-lived dance career ended at age 7. Alas, I found these Miu Miu flats at a steep discount and instantly made them mine. I'm a fan of the buckles across the top that give the otherwise soft shoes some toughness.

I layer this tie-dye turtleneck under everything. The color and pattern are so original, and the material makes it feel like a second skin.

One look at my Instagram would make it obvious that I'm crushing hard on all things lime green these days. Ganni's chunky knit sweater was an obvious pick for winter, and these patterned socks are purely just for fun.

I'm thrilled that croc-effect accessories emerged as a trend this fall because honestly, the style is so elevated and timeless.

These wildly affordable earrings add so much glam to a simple jeans-and-tee outfit. I can't wait to dress them up for the holidays, too.

My take on festival fashion is all in the accessories. I kept the rest of my look pretty simple with jeans and a denim jacket and topped it off with this soft bucket hat.

I'm a die-hard gold-jewelry wearer, so this link necklace fits with all the other pieces I wear while the silhouette really stands out.

These delicate pearl hoops earn me loads of compliments.
