WHAT: Jack Vartanian Lapis Lazuli earrings
WHY: Your earring collection likely consists of the following: a pair of diamond (or otherwise classic) studs, a dangly gemstone pair or two, maybe even a pair with feathers for the bohemian-inclined. But we're willing to bet that you're missing these: these stunningly oversized lapis lazuli stones, set in rose gold and surrounds by dots of tiny diamonds. It's quite a dose of blue, yes--your jewelry case won't know what hit it!

WHAT: Bonobos pink polo
WHY: You may think that October's Breast Cancer Awareness month is a cause just for the ladies, but Bonobos wants you to know that the boys have got your back as well. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this pink polo by the menswear favorite will go to The Pink Agenda, a not-for-profit organization committed to raising money for breast cancer care and research and awareness of the disease among young professionals. Really want to show your love and support, gentlemen? Bonobos has a pair of pink trousers available now as well...

WHAT: Sang A large River tote
WHY: We've been trying, for the sakes of our backs, to downsize our lives and stick to smaller bags. But there are some days--traipsing around Paris with stacks of show invites, peut-être?--that you just need a little more room. This Sang A tote in a gorgeous gray python gives you the convenience of being able to throw everything from your backup Repettos to your Smythson notebooks to go, but it's infinitely chicer than one of those million grubby canvas totes you carry your groceries in. Post fashion month, it's back to les petites...but for now, bring on the big bags!

WHAT: Aesa's Ascension necklace
WHY: You may remember biology and anatomy classes as less style, more studying--but then you probably didn't have this necklace while you were cracking those books. This stunning Aesa piece recalls a perfect gold spine. Unsure of body parts as jewelry? Fear not: the effect is less grusome, more organic. Med school, anyone?
