WHAT: Tod's My Colors bracelets
WHY: Because every four years, we care about soccer...or at least pretend to. (Admiring Cristiano Ronaldo counts.) The United States may be out of the World Cup, but that doesn't mean there's no one left to root for: do you prefer red, black, and yellow; red, yellow, and green; yellow and red; yellow and green; or red, white and light blue? If you can't choose---or you can't identify which team goes with which color (we don't judge, darlings)---a stack of team color bracelets by Tod's looks just as lovely.
PRICE: $225 each
AVAILABLE: Tod's boutiques worldwide

WHAT: Catherine Malandrino flag dress
WHY: Madame Malandrino may be a Frenchie through and through, but her famous American flag dress has earned a place in fashion history since its initial presentation at her Fall 2001 runway show. Luckily for vous, the designer has carried on making the patriotic frock, and it can be yours just in time for the Fourth of July---that's this Sunday, loves! (Defying gravity not included...)
AVAILABLE: Catherine Malandrino boutiques nationwide

WHAT: Carol Marie jewel and multi-chain necklace
WHY: Girly or bad-ass? We're not sure how to classify the brand-new jewelry line by Jennifer Carol Kramer and Heather Marie White (it just launched for Fall 2010!), but whatever it is, we like it. The ladies met in 2006 while both working at W, and their stong, statement-y pieces---like this brass chain and chunky glass stone necklace---have quickly been catching the fashion crowds' eyes. It's pretty, but it's also just the tiniest bit punk...

WHAT: Bensimon tennis shoes
WHY: Because Bensimon tennies are as much a part of summer as ice cream trucks or Coppertone. (What else were you planning on wearing to that July 4th picnic on Sunday?) And while we're partial to the bright tomato-red lace-ups today, the possibilities are endless: slip-ons in cheery yellow? Ballerina-style flats in teal? High-tops in classic white? At $57 a pop, you really can collect them all.
