WHAT: Roarke le Charlot necklace
WHY: Because our delicate little pendants, much as we may love them, just aren't cutting it anymore. We need bigger, more sparkling, can't-take-your-eyes-off it glamour, and Roarke's stunning necklaces do just that--with the ease of a bandanna (the intricate beadwork is backed on fabric). We've seen them sported with casual day dresses to serious formalwear, and love them all the while. Isn't it time to tie one on?

WHAT: Fendi leather zipper-pocket shorts
WHY: Yes, it's cold outside. Yes, maybe a bit too cold for your average short-shorts--but then, who said these are your average short-shorts? These Fendi shorts are made of the most luxe leather in a bright orange shade, which will be perfect come spring with a crisp white shirt or tee. But if you, comme nous, are too impatient to wait until spring to wear the beauties, try them over a cozy pair of gray cable-knit tights and tall boots.

WHAT: Arielle de Pinto hand-crochet necklace
WHY: Even if you can't crochet yourself, you still surely can appreciate some good old-fashioned handiwork--especially when it looks this lovely. This necklace is actually hand-crocheted 925 Italian gold vermeil, woven into a perfectly pretty net that will stun against a bare neckline. As for the burnished gold shade? All the better for that delicate, vintage vibe, we say--but if you're looking for something a bit more shiny and new, the look comes in silver or brighter gold as well.

WHAT: Flutter by Jill Goldin St. Germain Albert earrings
WHY: You love sugar and spice and everything nice, but sometimes all that sweetness can get a bit...saccharine. Want to balance that girliness? Try these triple spike earrings by Flutter by Jill Goldin. A touch of toughness is the perfect antidote to all those holiday dresses, non?
