We'd get burned by Alexander Wang any day! The Elsa frame clutch is like your grandmother's dainty pocketbook from the '50s. Only instead of a smooth black leather look, this one lights up the town with a red and orange flame print. A little bit more Sandy from Grease than Betty from Mad Men. THE DETAILS: Opening Ceremony, $925

Measure Your Rain Parade!

Don't trust the rainfall report from the weatherman with the perfect combover? Then use your boots to determine precipitation levels. Italian designer Stefano Pirovano launched his line of Regina Regis Rain boots 10 years ago to add "design and fancy" to shoes that are a bit more protective than your Lanvin flats during a deluge. Hope you're familiar with the metric system, because the boots display a centimeter ruler on the sides, just in case you want more precise measurement of the moisture. THE DETAILS: Rain Level, $88

What a Stud

Studs on your Christian Louboutins, darling? Well, if you're not sure about rocking the goth-chic look on your favorite patent pumps, then try it in smaller doses on a pair of kicks. Sam Edelman's Alexander sneaks (perhaps a nod to Mr. Wang who showed a plethora of fierce studs) feature studding, chains, straps, and just enough "wear" on the toe to make you look laid-back. You might spot Chic Reporters running around in these during Fashion Week... THE DETAILS: www.buydefinition.com, $149

Baubles for Babies

At first glance this gilded creation looks like a pretty bangle, but not so fast...it’s for babies only! The gold loop by Areaware is actually a hand-tuned, sixteen tone rattle for infants with impeccable taste. Is it just nous, or does this look like it may hurt? Hazardous or not, we’ve got our eye on the baby toy. Adults are entranced by shiny things, too! THE DETAILS: Vivre, $150

We made it through Friday the 13th without any mishaps, but we'll sport this delicate lucky charm necklace for the rest of the week just for a bit of extra security. Designer Jennifer Meyer creates feminine and whimisical pieces using fine metals and precious stones, and Chic thinks this will make a perfect contrast to some of the tough, somber looks for fall. Now, what to wish for... THE DETAILS: www.barneys.com, $700

Golddigging

We at Chic are always golddigging...That is, finding new ways to wear, use, and consume the natural element and precious metal. We've seen edible gold flakes and gold leafing in Versailles, and so why not golden candles? Comme des Garcons, pioneers of all things creative and kooky, have been inspired by gold and created a fragrant candle in its honor, titled 888 Candle. The brilliantly shiny box and votive are enough to keep us intrigued, but pray tell, what does gold smell like? THE DETAILS: www.shopconfederacy.com, $111
