buyer’s buys: basic boutique (and an exclusive discount!)

wow, that is some serious title alliteration…but i digress.  we’re test-driving a new feature here at SMC, in which we ask buyers at our favorite shops to tell us what they’re lusting after this season.  i love getting a new perspective from time to time, and there’s no better source than the people that get to see absolutely everything out there, and are then forced to narrow their picks to a very select few.

today’s “buyer’s buys” is with the lovely andrea denes of basic boutique.  basic is one of my favorite stops to check out established favorites like madison marcus and loeffler randall, as well as new faces like lorick and castle starr.  the online-only boutique has recently gotten loads of fab press, but i love being able to say i knew them when!  anyway, without further adieu, these are a few of andrea’s fave picks for fall:

Ulla Johnson Edith Blouse – This blouse is absolutely gorgeous and super lightweight so you can start wearing it now! The print is unique yet subtle, and will be the perfect compliment under a cardigan or vest this fall!

Velvet Sarill – Using a Rachel Zoeism…”I’d die”. Yep, that basically sums up this little number by Velvet. The fit, color, and need I mention price are all just dead on!

Vena Cava Casio Tank – Vena Cava is known for their unique prints, and this one doesn’t miss the mark. The cut of this tank is flirty and feminine, but the zipper front gives it just the right amount of edge. Perfect for layering under fall jackets.

Dorothy Lee Cardigan – Well, we obviously know sweaters and fall go hand in hand, but this one is actually making me look forward to cold weather! I plan to make this sweater my fall uniform, along with my skinny jeans and brown high boots.

Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag Mini – We’re no strangers to this staple bag by Rebecca Minkoff, but I’m obsessing over the neutral hued color of this season’s MAB mini!  The perfect compliment to those fall jackets and sweaters!

Loeffler Randall Ruffle Collar Jacket – If you’re looking for a statement piece to invest in this season, then you’ve found it.  This gorgeous jacket by Loeffler Randall can be dressed up OR down, the color goes with everything, and it looks amazing on.  Can we say “necessary!”?!
