WHAT: Maloles stamped lizard Cassandra shoe
WHY: With spring just around the corner, you can't wait to put your boots back into hiding, go out for a fabulous pedicure, and slip on some toe-baring shoes. Allow us to introduce you to a must-have pair by Maloles. Not only is each piece made using an artisan shoemaking practice called ‘Sacchetto,’ which offers a glove-like construction to envelop the foot giving more agility to the shoes (perfect for post-Fashion Month soreness), but the luxe lizard finish has plenty of chic to go around.

WHAT: Ray-Ban Caravan sunglasses
WHY: Chicsters still in New York are praying to every sun god out there that this gorgeous weather sticks. We're all of a sudden going bare-legged again, craving new sundresses--and though we're not going to pack away our winter gear just yet (wouldn't want to jinx anything!), we are in the market for a new pair of shades. A return to the classics seems in order this season, so why not try these Ray-Bans from J.Crew? You can get them online, yes, but we recommend swinging by the Soho Men's Shop in person; you can pick up a perfect oversized oxford to go with those short shorts...

WHAT: Sarah Chloe personalized bangles
WHY: There's something so charming about personalized jewelry from others, whether it's your boyfriend's class ring or your grandmother's engraved locket. But what about yourselves, darlings? Give yourself a little treat with these lovely bangles, which can be engraved with a single letter, initials, or a whole name. Maybe some day, you'll give it away...but maybe not.
PRICE: $69-79 each

WHAT: Sir Alistair Rai sequin caftan
WHY: Maybe you've still got last night's Oscars on your mind, but you're itching for all things gold. And while a little gold statue may not be within reach, this gorgeous gold caftan is no less luxe. Slip it on over a pair of leather leggings (or bare legs come spring)--and look out, Hollywood!
