For all of you who have ever wished you could take your Jimmy Choos to the gym or out on a morning run, now you can. And without risking an immediate visit to the ER, thank goodness! Jimmy Choo is introducing its first series of trainers…but these are not your average athletic kicks. Made from exotic purple snakeskin, patent leather and silver suede, the sneaks seem almost too glamorous to reserve for brisk walks only. THE DETAILS: Purple snakeskin trainers, $525, available at jimmychoo.com.

Even More Genius Correspondence! A Hamptons Creed!

We love this publicist, we really do. Behold the most entertaining pitch---well, aside from this---we've read all day!

How old were you when you got your first summer share in the Hamptons?  Most likely you were under 250, the age at which CREED (www.creedboutique.com) is enjoying this distinctively New York rite of passage. But we were looking for the perfect location---a converted bank. 

The summer share of the CREED brand, founded in 1760, is Saks Fifth Avenue, 1 Hampton Road at the intersection of Main Street in Southampton, across from the Golden Pear Cafe and next to the 1708 House hotel. Our neighbors?  We're not going to drop names (Barbara Walters).

CREED's roommates are a collection of luxury fragrance brands with whom there are occasional rivalries and competitions. Paris-based CREED has a full share and will be there all summer (and beyond) with an assortment picked from our more than 40 fragrances for men and women.

Confession: Chic loves buying perfumes as much for their scents as for the way they look grouped on our dresser (Gucci Flora and Miss Dior Cherie are two adorable recent additions). Perhaps Mrs. Herrera has the same fragrance decorating technique as nous, because her new pinkleather-wrapped limited-edition fragrance, CH Garden Party, will look perfect nestled in with our array of glass bottles. Oh--and it smells lovely, too, with a perfectly garden party-appropriate blend of citrus and florals like jasmine and rose. THE DETAILS: CH Garden Party, $90, Nordstrom

Spring in Your Step

There's not much springier than these ridiculously fabulous Tsumori Chisato wedges, with their poppy print and pedicure-baring open toe---and an espadrille base flecked with gold (naturally). But our favorite part? The colorful fringe trailing from the heels, which reminds us of the ribbons that used to fly from our bike handles as a kid. No, they're not for the faint of heart, but just think of how they'll jazz up your summer uniform of slouchy khakis (rolled up at the hem, of course) and a tee... THE DETAILS: Tsumori Chisato lace-up wedges, $540, www.openingceremony.com
