    Outlook Rosy

    WHAT: Anita Ko 14 karat rose gold Spike Stud earrings

    WHY: Sometimes it's tough to tread that line between ladylike fashion and the rock star ensembles we all know and love (right, Christophe Decarnin?). But sometimes it's easy---like in the case of these Anita Ko studs. Sure, the spikes are anything but saccharine, but the dainty size and pretty rose gold sweetens them up just enough. If only all our wardrobes were this accommodating!

    PRICE: $300

    Leather Lovers

    WHAT: Gucci leather sunglasses

    WHY: You have your leather shoes, leather bag, leather jacket, leather leggings---why not have sunnies in the same luxe stuff? Gucci has stepped in to fill the void with these new '70s-ish shades, with the frames covered in a thin layer of yes, leather. They come in black and two shades of brown, but we're partial to the slightly off-beat navy pair. The best part? Like all other in cuir, these will only get better with wear.

    PRICE: $495

    AVAILABLE: Solstice Sunglasses Boutique, in November

    Wax On

    WHAT: Stark Waxing Studio Palm Frond soy candle

    WHY: Stark Waxing Studio, the company with three beloved waxing locations across the country (New York's is located at Sally Hershberger's Meatpacking studio) knows a thing or two about wax---and not just the kind that rips off unwanted hair. The beauty biggie already has a line of lovely-smelling, clean-burning soy candles, and the newest addition to the line up, Palm Frond, might be our favorite yet. Bright and lemony fresh with notes of honey dew, cilantro, basil, lemongrass, and lime---well, it's a lot more pleasant than that other kind of wax...

    PRICE: $24

    AVAILABLE: www.starkwaxingstudio.com

    Back to School

    WHAT: Comptoir des Cotonniers Campus bag

    WHY: Whether you're a still a schoolgirl or not, there are some academic-era wardrobe staples you should never grow out of (cable knit, oxfords, and pleated skirts come to mind). And while we might not recommend wearing all of these at once, there's one accessory that you can pile on without looking like you've stepped out of Dalton or Spence: this sturdy carryall in buttery caramel leather. Ready to relive those school days?

    PRICE: $300

    AVAILABLE: 155 Spring St., New York, NY, 10012, (212) 274-0830
