One look at the zesty lemon-colored, vintage design of this Globe-Trotter for J.Crew suitcase and your mind wanders to African safaris in the savanna and deep-diving off a yacht in the Greek Isles. Basically, a bag like this inspires travel of the most romantic and exotic sort. With its lightweight fiber body in a shocking shade of yellow and the leather straps and buckling reminiscient of steamboat days, it's not surprising to find out that the brand dates back to 1897 and has a royal clientele. Plus, this valise couldn't get more utilitarian: it has wheels and a pull handle. Even if you can't afford the travel aspect of the bag, remember that it could always just double as stylish storage for silk scarves and dainty lingerie. THE DETAILS: Globe-Trotter Centenary suitcase with wheels, $1,600, www.jcrew.com

Longing for a retro-chic car to pack up for a weekend getaway from the city? Prada, as usual, has the answer. Regardless of whether or not you have keys to any ignition, Prada's new Car Key Chain satisfies that totally impractical desire for some hot wheels. This whimisical leather and lacquer keyring brings a modern and slightly more luxurious twist to the shape of the VW Bug. Available in cherry red and a juicy orange color, there is no way this charming bauble wouldn't stand out in an overflowing Birkin. THE DETAILS: Prada Car Key Chain, $150, www.barneys.com

A Chic guessing game: i-D's triple September cover features Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Lady Gaga (separately, of course---rumor had it Kate and Naomi refused to pose avec Gaga), with the somewhat cryptic coverline on all editions of "Then Now Next." Intended or not, we can't help but think these words might refer to the mag's cover stars, but which is which? Feel free to share your theories in the comments.

The September issue of Teen Vogue, featuring teeny-bopper star Victoria Justice (qui?), includes an article about the oh-so-scandalous teens who have been "crossing the line of good taste" to gain access to fashion week tickets and clothes. Prep-school duo Remy Renzullo and Becca Shumlin are glamorized as being blacklisted from fashion week after they snuck their way into hot shows, sometimes getting chummy with front-row eds. The juiciest dish? A certain publicist quotes: "...when you total up the cost of the show, each seat can be worth more than $500. So stealing someone's seat is like taking $500 of a company's money." $500, vraiment? Now we know why these flacks are so touchy about crashers...

Happy Birthday, Michael Kors! The eternally bronzed designer turns 51 today, and in the latest issue of Vanity Fair he happily discusses his fantasies…which involve plenty of Leos. “My dream dinner party is a fabulous birthday party for my fellow Leos,” he says. “Guests would include Andy Warhol, Jackie Onnasis, Alfred Hitchcock, Lucille Ball, Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Madonna, President Obama, Bill Clinton, Julia Child, Mick Jagger, and Whitney Houston.” Also celebrating her brithday today? Linda Wells---who Kors somehow left off his list.

You want your little bundle of joy to grow up properly educated, don't you? While Hop On Pop is perfectly acceptable reading for les petits, allow Chic to suggest something a bit more appropriate for the crayon-wielding set: an Hermès coloring book. Whether they stay inside the lines or not, these are drawings that you won't mind sticking on the fridge. (Childless? Torn out and framed, these pictures might be a witty---and cheaper!---reprisal of framed Hermès scarves, non?) THE DETAILS: Hermès coloring book, $130, www.usa.hermes.com
