After a weekend in balmy Miami, Chic is dreaming of open-toed kicks, notably these Diego Dolcini sandals with all the glitzy trimmings. Silver, gold, studded, crystallized—these heels are perfect for when the disco ball drops. They may have the attention-grabbing price as well as the look, but not for nothing. After all, have you ever seen such sparking chassures? THE DETAILS: Luisaviaroma.com, $2,046

The hail and wind is transporting us---mentally---to our beloved Bretagne, and the only thing we're even remotely interested in wearing is a striped boatneck. Saint James might offer the most authentic take on this matelot, but over the course of his career, Jean Paul Gaultier has made it his own. Now, he's offering an affordable version for Opening Ceremony. Humberto, Carol---do you offer same-day delivery? THE DETAILS: $270, OpeningCeremony.us

If you live in New York and you're not wearing galoshes today, dommage. But as much as we heart our Hunters, some days you want to up the glam factor of your footwear, non? Enter Valentino. Practical? Of course; they are rubber, after all. But with a black lace print on a blush background, they're far from average. THE DETAILS: Valentino wellies, $295, www.net-a-porter.com

How To Buy Jewels the Right Way

This is it, people: Chic's first post about the holiday shopping season of 2010. As you know, the major jewelry purchases are orchestrated well in advance of Black Friday, so as you start perusing the cases at Cartier, Graff, Aaron Faber, and Van Cleef, we enlisted CIRCA's chairman and CEO Chris Del Gatto to tell us what we need to know before throwing down. Without further ado:

1. "Always comparison shop with at least two reputable jewelers."
2. "If you are buying a diamond, always get a GIA certificate."
3. "Preferably buy signed jewelry – over time, a good name will never lose its cache."
4. "If you are partial to estate jewelry, you will always get more for your money buying estate."
5. "Most importantly, buy what you love – jewelry should never be considered an investment."

Yesterday afternoon around 3:15 p.m., Chic spotted Julia Roberts wearing a lackluster pant/peacoat ensemble. She was walking up Madison Avenue avec friends, and looked briefly at the Reed Krakoff windows...but didn't appear to stop by. Would Cintra be surprised?
