There are few moments as exhilarating as when a complete stranger approaches you to say, “I love your [insert fashion item here]. Where’d you get it!?”

“Yeah,” you think. “I am a fashion maven!”

We found seven real women (who just so happen to work at PureWow) and asked them to share the items in their wardrobes that guarantee a compliment every time they step out the door.

My Moody Floral Dress

“I got this Zimmermann dress earlier this year (on sale, might I add) and it has quickly become the MVP of my closet. It can be dressed up or down easily. It's extremely forgiving on bloated days. It's lightweight on and doesn't wrinkle. It's pretty much all I want to wear now.”  – Jenny Jin, Senior Beauty Editor

Get the look: Zimmermann ($475); Kensie ($70); City Chic ($119); Vince ($235)

My High-Waisted Crop Jeans

“These wide-leg crop pants are my year-round go-to. I like that they're versatile: On this particular day, I'm channeling a retired Floridian. I've gotten so many compliments on the high waist, cool-girl cut that I bought them in black, too. Oops!” - Katherine Gillen, Assistant Editor

My Floral-Embroidered Booties

“Complete strangers will stop me on the street and asked me where I got these boots. It's definitely a trendy statement that I wouldn't want to spend a ton of money on, so I snapped them when I saw this insanely cheap version ($30 from Forever 21). I wore them through winter but they're also easy to transition to summer because of the floral print.” – Heath Goldman, Food Editor

Get the look: Forever 21 on Ebay ($25); Nanette by Nanette Lepore ($78); Isaac Mizrahi Live! ($114); Dolce Vita ($126)

My Monogrammed Jacket

"One of our fashion editors did a story about personalized fashion and included a link to this Madewell jacket. I loved the way the red thread popped against the blue denim, so I bought it. Since the day I got it, people have complimented me on the fit, the thread color and also how much they love my homage to David Bowie. But that's the fun part: Telling them it's not an homage, it's just my last name. Then, they love it even more." – Rachel Bowie, Senior Editor Special Projects

Get the look: Madewell jacket ($118) and monogramming ($10); ADashofChic Etsy Shop ($70); SpikesnSeams Etsy Shop ($75); J.Crew jacket ($110) and monogramming ($10)

My Strappy (But Comfortable) Heels

“I always get a ton of love when I wear these funky, printed block heels, which (shhh) cost me $25 at Target in 2014. Somebody once asked me if they were Loeffler Randall!” – Jillian Quint, VP of Content

Get the look: Target ($33); Vince Camuto ($78); Kenneth Cole New York ($130); Dolce Vita ($140)

My Longline Bomber Jacket

“Our L.A. editor made me buy this, and I am so grateful that she did (thank you, Dana Dickey!). It’s an instant outfit-maker, and people have said it makes me look like a walking, talking California breeze. I love that it’s not your average bomber jacket. I will admit, I have a particular affinity for pretty much all frond-printed clothing and plan to keep this guy in rotation for a very long time.” – Lauren Gniazdowski, Editorial Operations Director

Get the look: Adidas ($90); Gap ($90); RACHEL Rachel Roy ($199); French Connection ($200)

My Millennial Pink Circle Bag

“There are so many things that make this bag feel special—the color, the shape, the texture. People are always asking me where it’s from, but their second question is always Does it actually fit all your things? Short answer: No. But it can fit all the essentials like my phone, wallet, keys and sunglasses case with room to spare, so it’s not as impractical as other mini bags I’ve seen. Seriously, what do people have in those?!” – Abby Hepworth, Assistant Editor

Get the look: Brahmin ($245); Street Level ($62); Rebecca Minkoff ($138); Mansur Gavriel ($795)
