I do love me some melamine

Do you ever find yourself obsessed with acquiring certain items for no real reason that you can think of? And if the answer is yes, will you please share in the comments so I can feel like less of a freak? I’m talking here about items you own enough of, but for some reason keep wanting to collect more of—which is how I feel about rolling suitcases (weirdly) and melamine dinnerware, and who even knows why. My favorite melamine plates ever are from the Liberty of London/Target collaboration from way back (I found a few on Etsy just now) and we use them for everything out in Sag Harbor —melamine is so handy  for outdoor dining, which we like to do there. Melamine’s unbreakability is part of the allure, as I am a big fat klutz who breaks dishes endlessly, but they also often come with some standout prints, like this gorgeous floral.

The concentric circles here are pretty trippy-cool.

From John Derian: a really elegant tray with a vintage rope print.

I dig the Shibori pattern on this salad plate.

And the Suzani print here is so bold and statement-y.

mela plate

This splatter print looks so one-of-a-kind.

mesa plate

There are a few colorways available for this one, but I find the pink and blue particularly appealing.

cereal bowls

A set of cereal bowls that are delightfully matchy-clashy.

No print here, but I included this plate because it looks so much like a Heath Ceramics plate I own.

I dig this stuff


I have oily skin—yes, even still, at this stage in the game—and in the summer, my face shines like a disco ball. I very much dislike the look of a face that looks powdered, however, and for that reason was thrilled to find Supergoop Invincible Setting Powder, which goes on super-translucent, and, even better, has an SPF of 45.

Top 5 of the week: summer skirts under $100

yellow skirt

Yellow and red are so good together in that mustard and ketchup way, and this floral couldn’t be a whole lot cuter.

These aren’t the summeriest colors, especially, so I’d lighten things up with a white scoop-neck tee.

linen skirt

This striped linen is so damn fresh.

topshop skirt

Another floral, this one with a print that strikes me as fun in a cartoonish way.

crew skirt

A sweet and feminine choice.

18 short-sleeved button-down shirts

crew stripe

Most all of my button-downs are long-sleeved, which gets hot this time of year, so I’m looking for some short-sleeved options, and I fear I have nothing more exciting to say on the topic than that. They’re just good basic pieces and I need them. This striped number is so excellently menswearish.

joie top

I like the drop shoulders and all-around slouchy vibe of this option from Joie.

madewell top

A good, crisp, white choice from Madewell that is nice and blousey.

rails top

I’m always a sucker for a good rainbow stripe.

treasure top

So excellently tomboyish.

scotch top

The flare sleeves and tiny hearts make this one standout.

central shirt

A super-cute chambray number.

rails shirt

This has subtle metallic stripes, which is fun.

equipment shirt

This short-sleeved version of Equipment’s classic Slim Signature blouse has those great front pockets.

gauze top

The styling here makes this gauze top look kind of dorky, but I actually think it’d be aces half-tucked (yes, I am still half-tucking).

wang top

I dig the black-on-black stripes on this silk option.

madewell top

Another chambray shirt, this one with a nifty tie-front.

fisher top

Maybe I’m nuts for thinking this, but the exaggerated sleeves here would make your arms look skinnier, I’m pretty sure.

floral top

This floral is like a classed-up version of a Hawaiian shirt.

dahl top

I like the raw hems and variegated stripes here.

double shirt

A really graphic choice.

theory top

A very elegant and structured silk top.


And this popover doesn’t technically belong in a button-down category, but it’s new (and well-priced) from Everlane and I like it.
