WHAT: Hirotaka Samarqand ring
WHY: Because no matter how much we love a vintage jacket or meant-to-be pair of shoes, jewelry can hold a meaning like nothing else. This Japanese kimono pattern and Alhambra Palace-inspired ring is bold but delicate, with a diamon-encrusted open center that, according to the brand, symbolizes the endless possibilities in life. Perfect for this long weekend, n'est-ce pas?

WHAT: Loeffler Randall rain booties
WHY: Because it will, inevitably, rain during Fashion Week---and probably on the day that you're sporting your sky-high suede Nicholas Kirkwoods. Such is life, darlings. But with Loeffler Randall now in the wellies business, you have no excuse for not being prepared and chic should a September storm hit. We're partial to the lace-up short booties, which are cool enough to pass for proper footwear even when the sun is shining.

WHAT: Zimmermann tooled leather bag
WHY: With Fashion Week just days away, we're on a serious hunt for that perfect bag. Our objective? First and foremost, it must be chic...but also big enough to stuff invites in, small enough to not bring on scoliosis, neutral enough to go with every ensemble---and a cross-body style that leaves our hands free for Blackberry-ing would be a nice touch. This Zimmermann style from our favorite Aussie beach babes fits the bill (and the budget!) perfectly. See you at Lincoln Center, loves!

WHAT: Diesel Black Gold Leogeo leather jacket
WHY: The grass is indeed always greener on the other side---what other reason could there be that we're so desperately dreaming of fall weather? On our wish list: a crisp pair of wool trousers, a pile of cozy knits, and of course, jackets upon jackets, starting with this snow-white Diesel moto style. In this fresh new shade, it's less tough-chick than the leathers of seasons past, but there's nothing soft about it (we're saving the soft slot in our wardrobes for a plush fur once the temperatures really drop). When does winter start again?
