    Sunny Days

    WHAT: Tommy Hilfiger sunglasses

    WHY: It's been days of dreariness and rain, but the sun is finally showing its face...and promises to stick around for the weekend. Go out and bask, darlings! And unless you've been living under a rock, you know that October is the month for breast cancer awareness---so the fact that 30 percent of sales from these pink shades go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation makes them that much sweeter. Happy weekend!

    PRICE: $98

    AVAILABLE: Tommy Hilfiger, 681 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10022, 212.223.1824

    Knock On Wood

    WHAT: Soigne K wooden bangles

    WHY: These wooden bangles studded with semi-precious stones are just some of the treasures to be found at Soigne K, the new Madison Avenue boutique featuring a lineup of Indian designers (some you know, like Manish Arora and Falguni & Shane, while other designers like Ashish Soni, Pria Kataria, and Prashant Verma are prime for discovering). But it's not just curating that owner Soigné Kothari does all day: she also designs a line of jewelry for the shop. When it comes to these bangles, the more the merrier, non? An added incentive to spend? For every purchase over $500, the store will donate one school uniform to an underprivileged child in the rural region of Banaskantha, India.

    PRICE: $165 - 245 each

    AVAILABLE: Soigne K, 717 Madison Avenue, New York

    Pearly Whites

    WHAT: Isharya Moon Bali pearl hoops

    WHY:
    There's nothing more classic than pearls, but at times those strands can feel a bit...stuffy. (Gabrielle Chanel excepted, of course.) Enter Isharya's gorgeously detailed 18 karat gold filigree hoops with a graphic white enamel touch and delicate, dangling freshwater pearls. Boring? Pas du tout. Consider these your new classic.

    PRICE: $435

    American In Paris

    WHAT: PF Flyers Bleu Rambler lo-top

    WHY: Because shoes that make you run faster and jump higher are fine with us in any iteration, but particularly a limited-edition run in collaboration with Parisian apparel brand Bleu De Paname. Only 500 pairs of these 1943-style moleskin and denim PF Flyers will be issued (along with another 500 pairs in a hi-top version) bowing at the chicest boutiques---think OC, Colette, and Dover Street Market. You've been sporting those stilettos around shows for four weeks now---don't you think it's time you gave those pieds the break they deserve?

    PRICE: $100

    AVAILABLE: Opening Ceremony and www.shoppfflyers.com, November
