Green tourmaline pops against black and white diamonds
WHAT: Jemma Wynne Modern Deco drop earrings with green tourmaline and black and white diamonds
WHY: It's hard to argue with black and white diamonds--especially when they frame such a gorgeous green stone. Hitting the awards show circuit? You won't be sorry you picked these. Staying at home for the red carpet festivities? The Jemma Wynne stunners are still just the thing to take that cocktail LBD to the next level of glam.
AVAILABLE: Jemma Wynne, 212 980 8500

Reece Hudson cuts out the flash--but still makes a splash
WHAT: Reece Hudson No. 1 clutch
WHY: It's easy for clutches to be a bit...precious. Crystals, bow, metallics--it's not that you don't love a gleaming Judith Leiber now and then, but sometimes a bit more pared-down is just perfect. Enter Reece Hudson, a line of bags just as luxe as they are rugged, for a downtown, casual vibe that's still completely chic. (Oversized, neutral colored, and so cool--could we have found the perfect Fashion Week clutch?) The brand is one to watch, for sure; come Fashion Week, they'll hold a presentation in a private apartment on Astor Place. You know what we'll be carrying...
AVAILABLE: Castor & Pollux, New York

Phillip Lim dresses up a tee--with a twist
WHAT: 3.1 Phillip Lim asymmetrical draped tee
WHY: Some days are jeans-and-t-shirt days, and there's just no way around it. But who says going casual has to mean going grungy? This draped cotton tee will be in heavy rotation in your closet, we promise--with everything from the aforementioned denim to a snazzy sequined miniskirt--but you'll never leave the comfort of your favorite slouchy tee.

WHAT: Lulu Frost deco bow dress clip earrings
WHY: Whether you've finished your shopping or not, that whole "holiday spirit" thing has become unavoidable--not that you're complaining. It's time to give in to the urge to wrap everything in colored paper and bedeck it with bows, but don't forget yourselves, darlings! We'll give you the pass on the paper, but these sweet bow earrings from Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost are too perfect to pass up.
