Sometimes big things do come in small packages. Don't be fooled by the tiny proportions of these colorful lollipop-sized balloon speakers. Instead of hot air, these 2.2" spheres blast enough sound to filter into your neighbor's cubicle. Designed by Yuen'to Design, these cute and portable speakers can be charged from any USB port and connected to any iPod or audio device that has a 3.5 mm earphone jack. And for a mere $45, who can resist a little kitsch? THE DETAILS: Kidrobot, $45

At first glance these lace-ups look like an oxford/pointe shoe hybrid, but these chaussures, created by Japanese footwear designer Koji Horigome, are more sculptural than they are practical. They look like they may pinch a bit, proving that flats aren’t always the comfortable choice.

You're preparing your feet for weeks of traipsing New York, London, Milan, and Paris---in four inch (at least!) heels, no less. You can tell yourself all day long that beauty is pain, but honestly, loves: sometimes you need a break. Enter these YSL sneakers, shiny and bright in white patent leather with the signature Y detail. (Yes, they're technically men's shoes, but we think both sexes should jump on board.) Your feet will thank you! THE DETAILS: Yves Saint Laurent sneakers, $445, www.ysl.com

Trunk Show

A trunk for your perfume bottles, your magic tricks, your bed? We may not think of storing birthday cakes or horses in our Vuitton, but clearly, we need to think outside the trunk. The tome Louis Vuitton: 100 Legendary Trunks will be available in October, but until then, you can satisfy your craving for the luxe carryalls with this amazing video.

While we're waiting for shows next week (because let's be honest, there will be a lot of waiting), we'd love to see this fun game backstage: Jonathan Adler's needlepoint backgammon set. A little kitsch, the white acrylic tray and corresponding game pieces are a moveable treat fit for supermodels' laps or the sand in Palm Beach. Note: competition is only encouraged after a complete reading of chic in your Daily! THE DETAILS: Jonathan Adler backgammon set, $295
