WHAT: Lanvin Alber printed pencil set
WHY: Because if you're lacking the chunk of change for a gorgeous Lanvin frock, you can get a petit Alber fix with this adorable pencil set. Six printed pencils come in a matching case, all designed by the genius that is Mr. Elbaz. We think these might just make the perfect gift for your fashion-obsessed writer and artist friends--although if you want to keep them for yourself, we won't blame you...

WHAT: Chloé flat knee-high boots
WHY: It's that time of year when your tall, flat brown boots become your go-to shoe...every day. And while you'll never abandon them, we could all use a little variety in our lives, non? Chloé's take for the season is just as warm, just as comfortable, just as perfect as your old faves, but in a fresh new color and with a sweet little braid decorating the heel. Looks like you've found your substitutes!

WHAT: Vince Camuto Paula platform
WHY: Shoe guru Vince Camuto has just launched his e-commerce website, and we know just where to start: The Paula. Basic black peep-toe it ain't--this platform, ankle-strap heel is covered in intricate cutouts for a sexier take on your go-to black heel, not to mention the leg-lengthening four-plus inch heel. But the fun doesn't stop there: newcomers to VinceCamuto.com, just by signing up for the website's mailing list, will be entered to win a $1,000 shopping spree on the site. We'll cross our fingers for you, darlings!

WHAT: Sachin & Babi for Ankasa sequin jacket
WHY: Because we're always looking for a way to put a more festive spin on the pieces we already know and love. What better way to do just that than with this sequined topper? Sheer sleeves, a cinched waist, and a grosgrain tie are sweet details that will work whether you're layering this sparkling piece over that hardworking LBD or a skinny trouser. As though you need more incentive (we don't), Sachin & Babi are donating 10% of the Ankasa store’s sales for the month of December to New Yorkers For Children. What are you waiting for?
