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.

WHAT: Lisa Carney Princess Castle Tower Ring
WHY: Lisa Carney's avant garde castle ring reminds us that we're never too old (or too chic) to believe in fairy tales. This whimsical bauble--cast in silver, brass, or gold vermeil--will be your knockout piece this winter over a pair of elbow-gracing gloves. The best part? You can keep it on hand for seasons to come; a castle rarely goes out of style.

WHAT: Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony Nana Trumpet Heeled Oxford
WHY: It's just in time for tomorrow's premiere of Portlandia on IFC, of course! These chunky oxfords are a welcome dose of flannel-friendly '90s grunge with au courant fashion cred. Chloe Sevigny, doyenne of downtown hipsterdom, dusted off the archives of L.A. based boot company, Nana, and added a dose of chic (and some much-needed heel height) to their classic, full-on combat stylings.
