Van Cleef Mini Frivole Earrings

Sale PSA: Classic leather Achilles sneakers from Common Projects, now $287, a simple wrap top from Madewell, now $25 (I have one in black and wear it a lot), a pretty sequin midi dress from Saloni, now 40% off, black block heel pumps from Mansur Gavriel now $232, nd classic sandals from Tory Burch, now under $200 (also if you go to the Tory site it is currently friends and family – I am considering the entire tracksuit in dark green!
