WHAT: Cashhimi ostrich handbag
WHY: Exotics get us every time, whether it’s luxuriously pebbled stingray or Hermès-worthy croc, but ostrich is high on our list of favorites. This gorgeous bucket bag has all the simplicity of that minimalism craze we’re all currently craving (thanks a lot, Pheobe Philo), and is big enough to tote your whole life around but sleek enough to look fabulous while doing so.

WHAT: Tommy Hilfiger Patrizia dress
WHY: Because it's sundress season, and when Kim Noorda breezed down the runway in this pretty little frock last September, we knew it'd be a spring must. Whether you go ballet-chic with a pair of flats and a top knot (a perfect summer picnic ensemble) or make it more cocktail-friendly with a super-high heel, this one's too sweet to pass up.
AVAILABLE: Tommy Hilfiger, 681 Fifth Avenue, 212.223.1824

WHAT: Mini Wendy Bag by LaLucca
WHY: The husband/wife duo behind LaLucca bring you this delightful leather clutch, hand-painted and signed by the couple. The loud colors practically scream at you, but in a joyful way---far from irritating---and the cartoony coloring has us thinking of a Keith Haring painting. Pair with a summer frock and celebrate le week-end!

WHAT: Neon Hart suedette vest
WHY: Move over, Erin Wasson---there's a new model slash designer in town. Jessica Hart (who you may remember for her gorgeous gap) has teamed up with Aussie brand General Pants Co. for a collection called, appropriately, Neon Hart. This faux suede vest has all the model-off-duty charm we love from these girls; it's a perfect topper for skinnies and that beat-up rock tee or toughening up a floaty floral. And don't be alarmed by that Australian e-commerce, darlings: they ship internationally!
