When creative director of Refinery 29, Philippe von Borries, asked me to take Refinery’s new e-commerce site , Refinery Shops , for a test drive, I couldn’t resist browsing through some quality New York boutiques. Minimal for me is often key and I am into my modern contemporary pieces so wandering round the fresh, clean and stylish â€œvirtual marketplace was ultra satisfying. I was hoping to pick up a big oversized white shirt, unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be, I did however find this very quintessentially chic Tie Neck Blouse from Lyell ($150) which would look great teamed up with black skinny jeans and a pair of platform pumps.
And this Lerario Beatriz Panel-Front Party Dress from Mick Margo ($375) went straight on my wish list….
The site is not for those on a budget, however there are a few pieces which have been slashed in price, so you can be sure to pick up a bargain or two. And Philippe promises more stores, more cities and even more products, so stay tuned….
