WHAT: La Prairie Fall 2009 Colour Collection
WHY: With these nice summer evenings finally rolling in, we are ready for a colorful night out on the town. La Prairie is launching their new color collection entitled Plumage de Nuit (that's feathers of the night, for you non-francophiles). With products for the eyes, lips, cheeks and face in rich colors of gold, copper, browns, purples, and wine, you may not know where to start, but fear not: color ambassador Raychel Wade will be on hand at Saks in New York tomorrow for demos.

WHAT: Malandrino Deubellet bag
WHY: Must as we try to downsize our lifes, it's hard to resist a big carryall...especially when it's this gorgeous. In sumptuous pleated Nappa leather with a luxe chain-covered handle, this tote is big enough for take you away for the weekend in style. We know, we know, it's only Monday...a girl can dream, non?

WHAT: Retrosun Paloma Picasso vintage sunglasses
WHY: It's Friday! Visions of frolicking in the sun are already running through your head, but don't forget to protect those pretty peepers. With Wayfarers running rampant in the city (though we admit that we love), why not try a pair of specs that will make you stand out in the crowd? These vintage shades by Paloma Picassa are transparent navy, and though the shape isn't too outrageous, they're certainly a spin on your old standbys. Don't forget the SPF!

WHAT: Givenchy gold sandal
WHY: We haven't been able to stop running all the couture shows through our heads this week, but the one we keep coming back to? Givenchy. (Just when we think we're over the harem pants thing, Riccardo Tisci has to go and make them in gold.) And though we may not be able to get our hands on that particular pair--it is a recession, darlings--these shoes will suffice...and then some.
