WHAT: Bodhi The Shoe Bag
WHY: Because when you travel, your shoes come with you---all of them. It doesn't matter if it's a multi-week vacation or a weekend jaunt, you need to have all your options, non? This pebbled leather and canvas bag holds up to six pairs of shoes, keeping them pristine and separated from your wardrobe...because they obviously deserve the same respect.
AVAILABLE: Nordstrom and www.bodhibags.net

WHAT: Ninaki Mini Contessa ring
WHY: L.A.-based Ninaki Priddy launched her jewelry line earlier this year, and it's abstract, art-inspired aesthetic is already catching eyes across the country. This sleek Contessa ring, inspired by sculpture, human curves, and architecture, is far from flashy but standout enough to make a statement, whether in utilitarian silver or a more luxe, 24-karat gold plated take.

WHAT: JNBY shirt dress
WHY: When JNBY landed on Greene Street earlier this year, it became an immediate obsession---but what about all you chicsters not based in Manhattan? Shopbop is here to answer your e-commerce prayers. The brand's fall collection hits the online retailer today, which means it's time to snap up the perfect pieces---like this white tunic, which is perfect now sans tights---pronto.

WHAT: Ariel Gordon Jewelry silk braid bracelet
WHY: Because even if you didn't make it to summer camp this year, you're still happy to pretend. Let's face it: Silly Bandz are just not good enough for those tangles of bracelets that we all love to sport during the summer months, but these braided friendship-esque bracelets (which come in an array of colors) are just the thing for a little nostalgia---without sacrificing chic. Now can we please dispose of the Silly Bandz? Please?
