A newbie to 1st Dibs, I’m not sure if I should feel disappointed that I didn’t know about this sooner or elated that I now have first dibs on the best selection of vintage accessories I have ever seen. I’m in love with this vintage 80s Hermés watch with the H’s running down the middle of the strap. A vintage Dior turban…I mean, honestly? And we haven’t even started talking about the furniture and clothing yet.

Charlotte Ronson: Angela Chase was Ronson’s inspiration and the result is a collection that is wearable and my like personal favorite of hers to date. Like, totally.
Risto Bimbiloski: Inspired by all things celestial, Bimbiloski’s Spring 2011 collection is unique, fresh, beautiful and cosmic.
ADAM: Spring’s hot colors of reds, terra cottas, & greys were all prevelent in Adam Lippes’ Collection but the romantic whites were what really won me over….big time.
Suno: Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty are inspirational masters at mixing prints and we have been huge fans since their start. This season, they introduced swimwear and a collection of insane wedges in collaboration with Loeffler Randall, to be released in February 2011.
Derek Lam: Denim, solids and breezy prints. Clean, crisp and classic. Love.
Look out for Lauren’s top 5 from the 2nd half of NY Fashion Week later this week!

I don’t generally like the rain…but don’t be surprised if you see me bust out in a rain dance just so I can wear this amazing caped raincoat. And it’s on sale! Spice it up with a few brooches and your green will be the envy of many.
