Roberto Cavalli printed stretch-crepe dress
WHAT: Roberto Cavalli printed stretch-crepe dress
WHY: It's never to soon to start dreaming of hot nights and flirty dresses. With a dash of cling (and plenty of swing), Cavalli's botanical print dress has us thinking of dining on the yacht somewhere off of Sardinia. The bob and sway of the Med, the pop of a champagne cork. Date night dilemma solved.
AVAILABLE: $1980, www.net-a-porter.com

Encantado Resort and Spa
WHAT: Encantado Resort and Spa
WHY: It's freezing, it's February, it's Fashion Week. You're enchanted with the frocks on the runway, but let's face it, you can't help but daydream about the dry desert heat. When you've jotted your last notes at the Tents, jet away to Encantado, the refined retreat in New Mexico's Sangre de Christo mountains. Sit poolside with one of the resort's killer margaritas and then slink back to your casita to sit by the crackling fire. Marc Jacobs, who?
AVAILABLE: Vista Casita from $550, www.encantadoresort.com

Aurelie Bidermann Silver-Dipped Lace Cuff
WHAT: Aurelie Bidermann Silver-Dipped Lace Cuff.

Delicate and etheral, this wide Aurelie Bidermann cuff is crafted of vintage lace dipped in silver, for an element of feminine glint to complement equally girly getups or add a touch of softness to an edgy ensemble.
