Here at Chic, we can only endure so much fashion before seeking solace in the sweet world of macarons. Today’s prize confection? These rainbow-colored delights by Theurel & Thomas, which is the first patisserie in Mexico that specializes in macaroons. It’s comforting to know that this Parisian craze is catching on just about everywhere, n'est-ce pas? Design agency Anagram masterminded the store’s interiors---now who wants to go to Mexico?

Seaton may be your go-to for sweet, Palm Beach-y tunics and sweaters, but we're loving the little wink on the back of this hot pink cardigan. The front may be your average V-neck cardi (though in a spuer-cheery hot pink), but on the back, the brand's trademark seahorses are getting a little cozy. Adorable! THE DETAILS: Seaton Kissing Seahorse cardigan, $335, seatonsurf.com

We’ve got gardening on the brain today here at Chic, and while we’re familiar with slipcovers for sofas or arm chairs, we’ve never heard of gardening hose accessories. The minds at Dirt Couture know that even gardening tools have the right to look marvelous, and who can argue with that? If you’re exhausted from staring at your unbecoming gardening hose, then these printed coverups are the parfait solution. Choose from floral, paisley or leopard. THE DETAILS: Dirt Couture, $30

Here at Chic, we love a good trick of Photoshop as much as the next magazine-obsessee, but this shot is real. Quoi? While that lipstick may have reqired a steady hand or a computer program, the glasses in question, by Dzmitry Samal, are designed to appear pixelated (see here if you don't believe us!). The 6 DPI Eyewear collection features painted acetate frames that look like lo-fi graphics, described by Samal as a reflection of this era of "informational aesthetics." Would you sport these shades?

Behold Benicio Del Toro, Giorgio Armani, and Russell Crowe at last night's amFar gala in Cannes---all in Armani tuxes, of course. Two Oscars, many millions, and enough fanfare (and flashbulbs) to go around. Bon week-end!

Everyone needs a $3,480 domino set in their repertoire of games, non? Even if your piggy bank can’t justify 3k for a box of squares, keep in mind that these aren’t your run-of-the-mill dominoes. The set is made with Siberian mammoth ivory inlay, and the white lacquered box has a fuchsia velvet calfskin interior. You may have to cut back on a few (or rather, all) other luxuries for the month, but after this purchase you can sit back, relax, and admire your lavish domino set. It’s too luxe to actually play with, of course! THE DETAILS: Vivre, $3,480
