WHAT: JNBY Military dress
WHY: You don't need to look far to see that the military look is spot-on for the season (merci, Spring 2010 Balmain)---but for those of us who don't have as many occasions for bedazzled and shredded takes, take note: JNBY opens its first New York outpost tomorrow in SoHo, and if you're itching for a little wear-everywhere summer frock, we've found it. This army-green dress is ready to go over a bikini, with flats in the city, with piles of jewelry...we just might not recommend it for boot camp.
AVAILABLE: JNBY, 75 Greene Street, NYC, 212.219.2505

WHAT: Sheer Stella by Stella McCartney
WHY: Because summertime is time to lighten things up, and Stella's new Sheer does just that. A subtler version of her beloved scent, Sheer features the fragrance of an organic rose harvested exclusively for McCartney---meaning this one-of-a-kind scent is available in limited supply. (Don't wait on this one, darlings!) Plus, the bottle is its own incentive: British painter Philip Jones designed the pretty packaging.
