    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

    Message in a Clutch

    WHAT: Dareen Hakim “Le Icon” Olive Croc Clutch

    WHY: We're suckers for a secret message, whether it's a hand-written note for a loved one or an inscribed watch. Beirut-born designer Dareen Hakim must share our love; her Le Icon clutches come embellished with (interchangeable!) gold plates that look decorative but in fact hide a message in Arabic. This one reads "My Love." How appropriate!

    PRICE: $355

    AVAILABLE: Henri Bendel

    On The Hunt

    WHAT: Hunter Geilo ankle boot

    WHY: It's your go-to for those rainy days, but who knew practical could also be so cool? Wellies wonderbrand Hunter has a brand-new leather collection, including these très utilitarian moccasin-ish lace-ups, with just enough of a wedge to keep you on your game, fashion-wise. We wouldn't go puddle-jumping in these---but then, you already have those boots, non?

    PRICE: $265

    AVAILABLE: www.hunter-boot.com

    Cat's Meow

    WHAT: KBL Eyewear Christabell in Nude  

    WHY: Long gone are the days when "four-eyes" could reduce you to tears. Prescription or no---with so many eyewear options, how can you pass up a pair of frames? Our current faves are KBL's Christabell, a cat-eye in a lovely peachy shade that's just subtle enough...but still plenty chic.

    PRICE: $225

    AVAILABLE: Gogosha Optique, Los Angeles, 323.660.1122, in December
