WHAT: Albertus Swanepoel's Duchamp fedora
WHY: It's high time to break out the chapeaux, so naturally, a bit of editing was in order. Given that only one good topper will fit in those trusty Europe-bound valises, then go with the best--in this case, Albertus Swanepoel's rabbit hair felt fedora, cheekily named after the artist who immoralized the style. While we love it with equally surreal Yohji or Comme oxfords, this baby is equally divine with girlish dresses. Dare you try it for evening? Too bad it won't arrive in time for tonight's New Yorkers for Children gala...

WHAT: Giuseppe Zanotti leather stud fringe sandals
WHY: Sometimes, darlings, more really is more--whether you're indulging in just one more macaron or asking for your shoes with all the fixins. Take these delicious Guiseppes, par exemple: do you really need studs, fringe, and a sky-high heel? Probably not...but that's what makes them so wonderful, non?

WHAT: Yasmineh bow and wood necklace
WHY: Fashion week is finally over in New York, and thank goodness: between the severe lack of sleep and the several costume changes each day, we were running out of creative wardrobe options! Which is why we love a statement necklace like this chunky wood, grosgrain and rhinestone Yasmineh choice: throw it on with your softest white tee and a pair of well-worn jeans, and you'll still be front-row ready in seconds. What could be easier than that?

WHAT: 3.1 Phillip Lim leather flying jacket
WHY: It's not just us, right? There's definite chill in the air today in New York (ah, fall!) that has us running to recover our favorite toppers from the depths of our closets. Of course, that also means we have an excuse to do a little cool-weather shopping. Fine, rabbit fur might be a little bit of overkill for this mid-60s day, but who can resist a classic bomber as luxurious than this?
