United Nude Block Pump Hi
WHAT: United Nude Block Pump Hi
WHY: Cause some whiplash and bit of rubbernecking with these sculptural, delightfully and slightly strange United Nude firecrackers for your feet. The gleaming, cherry-hued patent leather rounded-toe uppers strut atop equally shiny noir blocky, stocky heels. Delicious and a little bit odd--in the most endearing way possible.
AVAILABLE: $285, UnitedNude.com

Stila Cosmetics Haute In The Hamptons Beach Palette
WHAT: Stila Cosmetics Haute In The Hamptons Beach Palette
WHY: Summer is in full swing, from that almost-July swelter beating the pavements today and the most patriotic three-day vacay weekend of them all happening ASAP. Plus! Tomorrow, the latest Hamptons dish drops its deliciousness all over the East End (and online if you're not literally, but definitely figuratively, in a Hamptons state of mind) with the latest issue of The Daily Dan. But how to keep your face presentable yet au naturel when the tides beckon? Cuteness comes in small, chic packages, like Stila's Haute In The Hamptons one-stop spot for looking pretty by the pool—the second in a five-part series of Beach Palettes, each named for a gorge oceanfront locale. (Hit up Roxy.com tomorrow for the Stila and Roxy collab editions of the Palettes!) Sweep a quartet of oceanfront-apropos options on your eyes, including the adorably named Route 27 hue, add a flush of the wear-everywhere Hydrangea hue and bronze your face with the shimmery, peachy Montauk Highway shade. 'Tis the season!
