Goody Two Shoes  The platform soles! The boots’ textured canvas and leopard-print interior! The sandals’ black velvet straps and purple footbed! These pairs are the holy footwear grail I would’ve scoured Melrose for in 1993, and I’d expect nothing less from the new collab between Dr. Martens and X-girl. Strap X-girl Velvet Platform Sandals, $120, Jadon Max X-girl Canvas Platform Boots, $220, drmartens.com. –Lisa Butterworth

Badass Bath Goods Loquita Bath and Body (loquitabath.com), a colorful line of vegan and cruelty-free products soaked in Chicana culture, feels like a peek into the cool teen years of founder Yamira Vanegas. Try her Concha Bath Bombs ($7), Chingona Club Soap Bar ($10), and Bruja Body Crema ($8), which leaves skin “as moisturized as a piece of tres leches cake.” -Lisa Butterworth

Nifty, Thrifty, and Thriving I have BUST’s own Callie Watts to thank for introducing me to my new fave TikTokker, thrifter Talia Leslie (tiktok.com/@thehighlowfashionista), who I’m pretty sure is an actual wardrobe wizard?
