1. Helmut Newton’s Polaroids at the new Taschen Library at The Joule. I’ll take several of the coffee table books from this sexy little reading room.

2. This Rundholz striped tee from Cicada Collection in Snider Plaza. The ways in which a basic white t-shirt can be utilized are endless.

3. Anything from Stella McCartney’s SS2013 lingerie collection, but especially the Laura Pottering bustier and briefs. Shop the collection in the Highland Park Village boutique.

4. A refill of my beloved Memoire Liquide perfume in Amour with notes of vanilla, Tonka bean, and incense. It’s sweet and smoky and a departure from cliché designer fragrances.

5. This “Highness” beaded cuff sold at Dallas’ BelAir Home. Designer Josefina de Alba models the technique for these pieces after that of the Huichol people in Mexico. Each piece is handcrafted and takes three days to make.
