WHAT: Alexis Bittar Knot Necklace in Black & Gold
WHY: We adore the fusion of uptown chic meets downtown edge--and recent CFDA nominee Bittar has done just that with his chunky knotted necklace. It's big, it's bold, and it's perfectly cocktail-friendly. Subtle jewelry lovers need not apply!
AVALIABLE: Alexis Bittar stores or www.alexisbittar.com

WHAT: Carla Amorim rose gold bridge ring
WHY: She may already have five stores in her native Brazil, but designer Carla Amorim is still under the radar in the states--for now. The jeweler was inspired by architect Oscar Neimeyer (a fellow Brazilian) for her most recent collection, and we're loving the results, particularly this stunning sculptural ring in sparkling rose gold. Remember her name!

WHAT: Leifsdottir Bamboo Garden dress
WHY: Because sometimes, no matter how much you love your leather leggings, spike heels, and studded accessories, you want something a little sweet--especially now that the sun is finally shining. This sunny yellow frock with crisscross bodice and bow back is just the thing to put a little extra spring in your step. And now, when you register online at leifsdottir.com, you're invited to “pre-shop” the new Summer collection before it hits stores.

WHAT: White + Warren Pima Cotton Jersey Blazer
WHY: The hardest part about seeing the fall collections in February? We want instant gratification (don't we all, darlings?). We're impatient to get our hands on a wool menswear-y double-breasted blazer for fall--and luckily, cashmere go-to White + Warren has answered the call. Theirs has all the tailored edge, but in a pima cotton jersey that's perfect for slipping over your springtime dresses immédiatement.
