Thakoon Masai wool scarf
WHAT: Masai plaid wool scarf
WHY: Remember that punchy red and blue check print that was all over the Thakoon runway at the Plaza in February? Well, we were obsessing over the puffer coat version. Now we get to obsess over the wool scarf the designer whipped up to benefit children in the Horn of Africa, specifically in hunger-struck countries like Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Unlike most designer collabs benefitting a charity, ALL of the proceeds from the scarves go directly to an international children's relief organization in the area. With the unisex print, we're thinking of outfitting the entire Daily office in them: fight the freezing AC in the office, fight the imminent winter chill, and fight children's hunger. Winning across the board.

Dr. Martens Victorian Flower Boots
WHAT: Dr. Martens Victorian Flower Boots
WHY: With fall fast approaching, it’s time to start shopping for a seasonal must-have that has you covered on the comfort and chicness fronts. The badass biker-apropos silhouette gets gussied up with a decidedly feminine floral treatment. It's a slightly softer spin on an edgy Anglo-conceived classic. So give those six-inch stilts—we mean, stilettos—a rest and grab a pair of these vintage-inspired booties. Your pieds will thank you!
AVAILABLE: $130, DMUSAStore.com

Beacon Hill Haircalf Tote
WHAT: Talbots' Beacon Hill Haircalf tote
WHY: We love a good comeback story, don't you? Take Talbots for instance. With Julianne Moore back for round two in Fall 2011, we were immediately intrigued by her 40s and 50s era look with the Beacon Hill Haircalf handbag swinging just so from her arm. A name reminscient of the stately, blue-blood neighborhood in Boston, this tote would look just as good on Avenue of the Americas as it would on the Freedom Trail.
AVAILABLE: $395, www.Talbots.com

Gioielli by Nikki Baker Earrings
WHAT: Gioielli by Nikki Baker Diamond Petal Earrings
