When it comes to style, we love anything reminiscent of days of yore — so when we got word that Estée Lauder would be introducing custom-made uniforms for its beauty advisors, we got nostalgic for the days when shopping for makeup was more of an occasion than an errand and the girls working the counters were brand muses.
We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one standout steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: an Opening Ceremony sweater that practically earns its own frequent flier miles.
