Simply Stylist had the chance to chat with Suzanne to find out what her top 5 beauty and fashion must-haves are and why. Find out below.

1. A graphic dress ($98.00) BUY HERE: If you can’t afford Peter Politto or aren’t fast enough to grab his collection from Target, then you will be ecstatic to find this gorgeous graphic dress for under $100 by Gabby Skye . I bought the Mirror Print Scuba Sheath Dress because I love the print, colors, it hits just below the knee and hugs your body in all the right places!
2. Bold Lip Color ($26.00) BUY HERE: I recently switched over to lipstick after being completely devoted to gloss for years. I fell in LOVE with Funny Face by NARS, as it’s perfect for the gal who typically wears pink, but wants to go bold!
3. Vivacious Vintage Sunnies ($350.00) BUY HERE: You can either throw shade or better yet, do it in massive style! I love these throwback vintage designer shades by DITA Eyewear. The Vesoul are one of the best frames I’ve seen and come in fun options like the Geometric Block or Blue Swirl.
4. Alexandre Birdman-Python & Suede Sandals ($695.00) BUY HERE: I’ve never been one to play it safe and neither should you! Exotics like snakeskin should be considered your summer neutral. Besides, these sensational sandals go with dresses, skirt, jeans and more!
5. Stunning Studded Cross-Body Bag ($670.00) BUY HERE: Okay, so maybe I’m biased because I designed this bag, but everyone knows a cross-body bag is essential for summer – and for all seasons for that matter! I love this bag not only for it’s function, but because I was the first to use pyramid studs all over this luscious lambskin sling. The best is that the more more you use it, the better the bag gets.
