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

Mad Men Collection Animal Print Cardigan
WHAT: Mad Men Collection Animal Print Cardigan
WHY: We'd like to think we're "over" the Mad Men craze, but honestly, who's ever going to be over the timeless and ladylike silhouettes worn by Betty Draper? If you missed the memo, Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant created a collection with Banana Republic with a decidedly '60s feel. But doesn't that leopard cardi look so perfect for Lincoln Center in a few weeks? Oui oui!
AVAILABLE: $89, www.BananaRepublic.com
