Here's Eviana's top 5 picks to conserve in style:
1. Bodkin Nimbus tunic in organic cotton chambray ($285): "I wear this pretty much every day; it's the most useful thing in my closet. The shaped front hem makes the wearer look lean and leggy, and the super-long shirt-tails add an interesting dimension when layered underneath a hip-length jacket or sweater. Plus, it will only get better with age." Available at Bird, 220 Smith Street (at Butler Street); Brooklyn; 718-797-3774.
4. Saxelby Cheesemongers Cheese Club (from $49.50): "I got this as a semi-selfish Christmas gift for my boyfriend. You receive three cheeses from small Northeast farms each month or season, along with the story behind each one. Anne Saxelby truly loves and knows cheese, and she even organizes educational weekend trips to nearby cheese-makers." Essex Street Market, 120 Essex Street, (between Delancey and Rivington streets); 212-388-0449.
