WHAT: Kate Spade Twirl eau de parfum
WHY: If you're going to be depriving yourself of regular meals this Fashion Week (is it just nous, or is this season's schedule crazier than ever?), why not at least satisfy your cravings with something sweet-smelling? Twirl, the brand-new fragrance by Kate Spade, has notes of watermelon, blackberry, red currant, and even a hint of fresh, French macaron. Delicious!
PRICE: $80 for 3.4 oz.

WHAT: Jessica Hicks Champagne earrings
WHY: If there's one thing for certain about the impending fashion month, it's that there will be no shortage of champagne to get you through. But for those moments when your flute is not at your fingertops, these Jessica Hicks earrings have enough bubbly spirit to perk you right back up. Cheers!

WHAT: Hirotaka Samarqand ring
WHY: Because no matter how much we love a vintage jacket or meant-to-be pair of shoes, jewelry can hold a meaning like nothing else. This Japanese kimono pattern and Alhambra Palace-inspired ring is bold but delicate, with a diamon-encrusted open center that, according to the brand, symbolizes the endless possibilities in life. Perfect for this long weekend, n'est-ce pas?
AVAILABLE: EVA New York, 355A Bowery, New York, (212) 925-3890

WHAT: Loeffler Randall rain booties
WHY: Because it will, inevitably, rain during Fashion Week---and probably on the day that you're sporting your sky-high suede Nicholas Kirkwoods. Such is life, darlings. But with Loeffler Randall now in the wellies business, you have no excuse for not being prepared and chic should a September storm hit. We're partial to the lace-up short booties, which are cool enough to pass for proper footwear even when the sun is shining.
