WHAT: Alexandra Satine Brickel Bag
WHY: Convertible and chic in the realm of fashion don't usually occur in tandem. Usher in the Brickel bag to dispel that notion, darling. This Alexandra Satine creation, in a delicious tan leather that inevitably matches everything, polished off with gleaming gold hardware. The satchel has options galore, from a retro striped and webbed strap to removable pockets for going slightly less tethered when a minimalist mood strikes.
AVAILABLE: $488, AlexandraSatine.com

Shaun Leane Gold Plate Spine Ring
WHAT: Shaun Leane Gold Plate Spine Ring
WHY: Delicate yet slightly subversive, this ring is fabulously stackable but also adds subtle pizzazz when worn solo. Who knows, you might find yourself with better posture when you have gleaming gold vertebrae gracing your digits.

Akris Ai Medium Horsehair Top Handle Bag
WHAT: Akris Ai Medium Horsehair Top Handle Bag
WHY: Like a crisply folded napkin or perfectly looped and tucked bow, there's something satisfying about that architectural trapezoid silhouette and neatly folded corners of the Akris Ai bag. It's now available in finely woven Mongolian horsehair that lends a rich textural hit to this hit of a handbag, which is particularly striking in coral. Un-fold-gettable!
AVAILABLE: $4,400, SaksFifthAvenue.com

Giles & Brother Pied-de-Biche Cuff
WHAT: Giles & Brother Pied-de-Biche Cuff
WHY: Because it's for him or her. You can dress it up or down, wear solo or layered. Plus! You know Fashion Week is just around the corner. The only thing this brass and leather bracelet can't do is guarantee you a front row seat at Marc Jacobs. But it's worth a try.
AVAILABLE: $225, GilesandBrother.com
