Vintage Needlepoint Purse at Waistland
Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: No longer is needlepoint restricted to your grandmother's pillows and your "cute stuff!" Pinterest board. With designers including Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, and Marchesa showing pieces for Fall that embrace tent-stitching, it's an oncoming trend worth trying.
Get a jump on it a few months early with this summery white and floral 1960s handbag with leather trim and a brass clasp.
Style It: Pull colors from the flowery image's scheme to build an outfit. We chose an aqua maxi skirt and spearmint suede wedge sandals, both from J. Crew, and accessorized with Anthropologie's multi-strand cream and caramel-colored necklace and braided brown leather and coral wrap watch. All of that is piled atop a cornflower blue cotton-jersey T-shirt from James Perse.
