B-Low the Belt Boa Tassel Belt
WHAT: B-Low the Belt Boa Tassel Belt
WHY: Scale new heights with B-Low the Belt's python-embossed waist-cincher, complimented with flirty suede tassels. The exotic animal print accent is just the thing to help you step into the wild without going overboard. Plus, it does double (make that triple) duty. Need a headband? Check. How about a western-inspired lariat? Yep, it can stand in as a necklace too. Three for the price of one. We'll take it.

WHAT: Vionnet Cuff
WHY: Maybe it's the grandeur of the Duomo. Maybe it's the architectural lines of the street-side basilicas. Either way, we're harboring a major craving for some sculptural gioielli during Day 1 of Milan Fashion Week. That's where Vionnet comes in. With Italian designer Rodolfo Paglialunga at the helm since 2009, the French luxury brand has seen an insta-revival. The proof? Vionnet's gold-tone cuff, accented with graphic yet simple embellishments that will perfectly compliment the twenties-ness of Spring 2012.
