Sure, this Pretty Things Inside Paper Tape ($7) would be great for wrapping presents or mailing cards or love letters, but we're considering just slapping it on our coat like a name tag. Too much?

Bikini, shmikini. We're embracing
our age a retro vibe and rocking this Nautical One Piece ($90) this summer. Picture us on the beach with an oversize hat, cat eye sunglasses and a bold red lip. Actually, just picture Taylor Swift's fabulous style and assume that's how we look.

You know what really elevates that $4 block of cheese from Trader Joe's? Serving it on something other than your leftover Super Bowl paper plates. May we suggest the lovely Duo Server ($180) from Liebal? Yes, it's more expensive than a year's supply of paper plates, but it has some versatility. Use it together as a service platter, separate the pieces for prep and service, or use them as two individual service pieces.

Hey there, it's your older, wiser self checking in with a hot tip from the future. You're going to want to step up your eye care game, and we're not talking about perfecting your liner. Adding this fresh Lotus Eye Gel ($48) into your skincare regimen will keep that delicate skin around your eyes hydrated and plump (which is a word we'd usually never employ when talking about a body part!). It'll keep you looking fresh during the day and younger in the long run. Bonus: it also works as a quick, hydrating corrector when you have an eyeliner slip up.

The logistics of having actual Easter bunnies in the house simply won't do. We don't have room for all those baby bunnies! Plus, our friends and relatives don't take kindly to giving the little kids in our life unsolicited animals. So, instead we're picking up a few of these colorful Ceramic Bunnies ($10) to decorate for the spring season and that upcoming Easter potluck.
Speaking of, anyone have any good side dish recipes they can share?

You know how everything gets clearer when you drink*? What if the actual place you store your booze was just as clear? We're getting deep on you, we know. Whether or not you want to read too much into it, the CB2 SAIC Tonic Bar Cart ($599) is a lovely acrylic piece that blends into the existing decor of your home while simultaneously showcasing your mid-range liquor collection and fancy bottle of wine you're saving for a special occasion.
*Obvi there's a tipping point here, but a few glasses of wine and we can run the world, right?!

You know what gets a bad rap? Deviled eggs. They're so fabulously retro and they're also delicious. We've taken to updating ours with sriracha or truffle salt, but even our grannie's recipe is a perfectly wonderful bite. Another way to update this classic is a colorful little platter like this Phoebe Egg Platter ($23). You don't even have to pipe the yolky filling if you use this snazzy service water!

It's only Tuesday, but we're SO ready for the weekend. What are you doing? Happy hour on the patio? Garden party? Wedding? Brunch with the in-laws? The Queen of the Wildflowers Dress ($80) is the base for the perfect ensemble for any of those occasions. If your social calendar isn't quite that full, you can even wear it lounging around on the couch watching House of Cards - it's quite comfortable!

Whether you're trying to channel your inner Audrey Hepburn or just wanting to glam up your hangover chic look, the Kate Spade Genette Cat Eyes ($165) are your new sunnies for spring. Go classic black or opt for a more mod beige frame. Both pair beautifully with a red lip and that posh persona you're trying to cultivate.

You've got to spend money to make money, right? At least that's what they say. We're spending money to save money by buying this Zoku Iced Coffee Maker ($30) as we head into summer. Pouring hot coffee into the pre-chilled container gives us cold coffee as we head out into the summer heat - we hope it's going to get here soon! - and keeps us from dropping a fiver at our local coffee shop every single day.

We've been unpacking the spring and summer clothing crates, and okay, so we have a lot more cute day dresses than we thought. But what's just one more? This Phoebe Cotton Dress ($98) is beyond; it's not just any old striped dress. We love the little flared sleeves and the round neck collar, and a back waist tie is always welcome for a little extra form and daintiness.

Now you see it, now you... still see it. The perfection of this dress from Milly ($350) is not an illusion. The mesh details at the neck and hem are bold, graphic, and even though the dress involves quite a bit of sheerness, it's still totally classy. (We're looking at you, Kim.)

Cardigans are perfectly good transitional layers, but this year we challenge you to put aside the old standby and try something new, like this Floral Reversible Jacket ($80). This light cotton is versatile, and not only because you get a red jacket and blue jacket in one. It's loose enough to wear a long-sleeve shirt underneath, but also form fitting enough to layer under a jean jacket.

Sometimes when we're at concerts seeing bands with stylishly dressed female members, we space out, the music floats to the background, and we spend our time thinking about what we would wear if we were on stage. Now that we've seen this Striped Satin Dress ($100), it will forever more be in our dream stage outfit rotation.

You want to give your plants the best. That's why you sing to them, maintain an effective home composting program, and place them in the sunniest window (to the chagrin of your displaced kitty). But wait, are you really giving them the best support? The Plant Wall Rectangle ($54) is much prettier than the thing you found in the garden aisle at Home Depot. Plus, we've heard plants just love geometry!
