On a recent trip to Los Angeles, Chic dropped by TenOverSix on Melrose and was ecstatic to find a boutique devoted to the stuff we love best: Indie accessories! Martine Sitbon, Rachel Comey, Vena Cava, and Gryson are just a few of the notable designers, but Chic is particularly obsessed with the store's "Canyon Backpack" in full-grain leather with a removable bottom. If we were slightly more athletic, we'd use it for a jaunt up Runyon, but hey—it looks equally great on the 4/5/6. THE DETAILS: $385, Shop.tenover6.com

ADR's Rules to Live By

Oh, how we adore a top ten list from Anna Dello Russo. That adorably broken---sometimes unintelligible---English! That unwavering obsession with fashion! Recently, the street-style phenomenon (and editor at large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan) divulged her "10 Quotes of Fashion." Behold! (Number Four is our fave, by the way. Fashion shower, anyone?)

1. Fashion is a MUSE, you must seduce her.

2. Take your MUSE to dance, fashion loves music.

3. FASHION is such stuff as DREAMS are made on...

4. When you don't feel to dress means that you are depressed. You need a FASHION SHOWER.

5. If you like to be relaxed, you will never get the LOOK. Fashion is always UNCOMFORTABLE!

6. Don't go to far in vintage. Fashion is HINC et NUNC.

7. So between FASHION and STYLE? Absolutely FASHION...is less pretentious, is authentic. FASHION is declaration of own freedom.

8. Because nothing succeeds like excess!

9. NO matter the size of your body! FASHION to flatter every figure.

10. FABULOUS at EVERY AGES. Fashion to FLATTER you.

Bordelle has you covered (at least partially) when it comes to underpinnings, but we love the idea of a dress destined for beyond the boudoir. The print continues on the back, and it laces up corset-style. But remember: it's November! Bring a wrap! THE DETAILS: $520, Luisaviaroma.com

The Christian Louboutin sample sale is like Christmas come early for the fashion crowds (except that it happens twice a year!), and yesterday's stop by the red-soled shoe HQ was no exception. In addition to Chic's booty of 1.) one pair of gold strappy sandals, 2.) one pair of tobacco suede pumps, 3.) one pair of hot pink, crystal-studded stilettos, and a few clutches, we spotted the likes of Blake Lively (avec assistant and a pile of boxes), Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, and Selita Ebanks picking up some chassures of their own. Selita, love: we hope you picked up those thigh-high fringed boots!

Rumors of strife between Vogue.com and Style.com appear to have some legs. At several recent events, Vogue.com's reporters have been granted a prime spot at the beginning of the red carpet—for easy access to celebs, of course—while Style.com-ers have been relegated to the middle of the line, in the realm of those print weeklies and pointedly removed from their prime competitor. We report, you decide...

Bow Beautiful

Clutches: so boring (usually). The same old rectangular shape, occasionally jazzed-up with some Swarovski...non! Alexis Mabille has a solution. His epic bow clutch is made of leather (edgy? Check!), and it's small enough to scrunch into your hand. Cute, but not cutesy. Take that, Cipriani scene! THE DETAILS: 650 euro, colette.fr
