Given present-day product inundation, it’s really hard to not buy everything under the sun as soon as our paycheck lands – this applies twice as much for those of us working in and around the world of fashion and beauty. Unless you are deep of pocket and infinite of closet space, it’s not healthy to pursue shopping like it’s an Olympic sport, but the occasional indulgence definitely falls under the banner of “retail therapy”. Monthly, our wish list gets longer and our virtual carts get fuller, both factors threatening to culminate in closets that are a lot more crowded.
If you want to know what’s on our shopping bucket list for the month of August, our RIP Paycheck feature will introduce you to brand new products that have just hit the shelves and are worthy of your consideration – from the jewelry brand Dana Hourani can’t get enough of to the chicest-of-chic hands-free belt bag.
We were wowed by all of Mayra Fedane’s gorgeous designs, but this one just feels particularly right for the summer season.

With romantic blouses high on every influencer’s wish list this season, we needed a unique version to set us apart from the rest of the style pack – and this one’s just the ticket.

Dana Hourani is obsessed with this jewelry brand, and it’s easy to see why. The cheeky designs and massive sizes assure a statement-making outfit accent whose message is loud and clear.
Small, chic, and totally practical, the Nanushka belt bag in a croc-effect exterior looks wildly expensive, but is actually a lot more affordable than real crocodile leather.
