Some people take the long view when prices start to drop. They’ll consider winter and beyond. Laura, on the other hand, is more of an instant-gratification shopper, opting for pieces she can unwrap and wear immediately. Perhaps it’s something she can throw in her summer suitcase (hello, crochet rainbow bag), an easy pop of colour on those denim and tee days (tassel-embellished hoops, anyone?) or a guilt-free addition to her considerable collection of broderie anglaise (this gorgeous Ulla Johnson dress). To be fair, there’s an element of patience and planning too. She’s been online-stalking the red Gianvito Rossi slingbacks since April, promising that she’ll wear them with every single thing she owns. Her restraint paid off when they went on sale this week. And other times, she finds a style problem-solver, like the black, ruffled halter by Valentino, which she’ll wear with everything from boyfriend jeans to statement skirts.
