When luxe boutique Fivestory first opened its doors on the Upper East Side nearly three years ago, we went a little retail crazy. Owner Claire Distenfeld's carefully curated fashion paradise boasted an enviable stock of ready-to-wear, shoes, handbags, and accessories that had us wishing we could magically spend our entire month's rent on Balmain.

Starting today, the boutique queen is bringing her Upper Manhattan style mecca to the rest of the world with the launch of Fivestory's new e-commerce shop. Now, you can browse a seriously amazing selection of accessories (with the launch of clothing soon to follow) that might leave your wallet empty — but your heart seriously fulfilled.

In celebration of the launch, Distenfeld shared her 15 favorite picks for looking your best as the weather gets warmer. Go on and treat yourself to a little summertime goodie — you've earned it.
