WHAT: Reverie Convergence necklace
WHY: As though you needed another reason to go to Chelsea Market: the center's brand-new Anthropologie opens today. And as though you needed another reason to go to Anthropologie: this particular store will be carrying one-of-a-kind pieces by local artisan and designers. This Reverie necklace caught our eye right away; the layered '70s-era brass panels embellished with 1920s cobalt blue rhinestones have that perfect vintage charm without being too delicate.
AVAILABLE: Anthropologie at Chelsea Market (75 Ninth Avenue, 212-620-3116) and www.reverienyc.com

WHAT: Kimberly Taylor's Toni Tank
WHY: It's official! Tie dye is a spring essential—as always—and thankfully, designers are finding chic ways to now-ify the trend. One of our faves is Kimberly Taylor's breezy silk tank in a bold, electric blue hue. It's long enough to wear over leggings as a short dress—avec belt!—and sufficiently versatile to wear day or night, at the club or the beach. And it's thin enough to fit in any weekender bag. Mr. Garcia would approve.

WHAT: Loquita gun scarf
WHY: There's nothing more chic than a classic Hermès scarf, but sometimes, you want to be a little less...expected. Enter Loquita---the brand's scarves are luxurious, oversized, and 100% silk, but in patterns that are just a touch more subversive than, say, equestrian-themed takes. Our favorite, this hot pink and red version is scattered with guns; another's winding chain pattern ends in a shackle. No, they're not your grandmother's silk scarves...
