When it comes to chaussures, the term “mule” doesn’t have the most glamorous connotation. Images of substitute teachers in sensibly low heels come to mind, but leave it to Rochas to step in and revamp the word entirely with mules from the Fall 2010 collection. Gilded leather, a bedazzled buckle, a studded heel: there’s a whole lot going on here, and we adore it all. Consider us converts!

Tote Bag Tote Bag

It took us a moment to decipher the message on this tote bag, but a second glance (or a first glance in the mirror) quickly reveals the exclamation. The bag is taken from Dan Colen’s “Holy Shit” (2006) upside down and backwards painting, featured in the New Museum’s current “Skin Fruit” exhibition. While the carryall may be a bit crass, it’s decidedly clever, and that’s a combination we can get behind. So next time you feel a series of curse words welling up within you, take a breath, stay silent, and grab your tote bag. THE DETAILS: New Museum Store, $18

Okay, so these sugary sweet treats may not get you into Willy Wonka’s factory, but we won’t complain. The promise of chocolate, toffee and peanuts is enough for us. In homage to the classic Roald Dahl tale, Chic invites you to indulge with a tasty confection. Even the name of the candy bar gives us a hankering: “Scrumdiddlyumptious.” We’re already digging in the bottom of our bags for loose change. THE DETAILS: Selfridges & Co., $6.10

You may still be recovering from various Memorial Day weekend getaways, but can we interest vous in your next vacation---on a Fendi yacht? Lady Lara, the custom 194-foot yacht decorated entirely by Fendi Casa, is one of the more ridiculously indulgent destinations we've seen in a long time. (Think gold, silver, mother of pearl, fur, crocodile, and slews of Swarovski crystals---and that's just the interior!) Click gallery for a full slideshow of the luxuriousness, but your little duffy boat might be jealous...

Karl Lagerfeld X DC Comics gloves Karl Lagerfeld X DC Comics gloves
View Gallery

Chic considers Karl Lagerfeld a superhero in his own right, but this collaboration brings him that much closer to the real thing. DC Comics---yes, you read that right---has teamed up with the likes of the Kaiser for these gloves inspired by the Green Lantern, complete with an emerald-hued rock on the right hand. While we're partial to the gloves, that's not the end of DC's high-fashion streak: there's also Alexis Mabille for The Joker, Balmain and Lanvin for Batman, Sonia Rykiel and Maison Michel for Wonderwoman, Pierre Hardy and Julien David for Superman, Thierry Lasry for Plastic Man, Repetto for Flash, and Roger Vivier for Catwoman. See the gallery for Chic's top picks! THE DETAILS: Karl Lagerfeld X DC Comics gloves, $601, colette.com
