WHAT: Burberry print long-sleeved tee
WHY: If graphic tees bring you back to your tween days, think again. (Naturally, Chris Bailey would be the one to do it right.) These printed tees from the brand's Fall 2009 collection look just as good layered under a nubby blazer--for the boys and the girls!--as they do topping off a perfectly feminine skirt (see: Gwyneth, who paired her sleeveless version with a brand-new Spring 2010 skirt at the London show).

WHAT: T by Alexander Wang striped baggy tank
WHY: Two of our favorite things have met at last: preppy sailor stripes and Alex Wang's perfectly slouchy tees. As though his collection of super-comfortable and just-sheer-enough gray, black and white tees wasn't enough of a staple of our closets, now Alex the boy wonder has introduced this classic pattern--which also comes in a truly adorable romper version. Can we buy in bulk?

WHAT: Richard Phillips "Spectrum"
WHY: Haute retailer Intermix has taken its relationship with art one step further for the holidays, collaborating with the Art Production Fund to create limited-edition canvas reproductions of Richard Phillips original art. (You may recognize the "Prop Art" from a certain Van der Woodsen loft on a certain CW television show.) But not only is this bright work a perfect way to jazz up your abode, but 100% of the proceeds go toward the Art Production Fund, which facilitates projects by contemporary artists.

WHAT: Olivia Harris by Joy Gryson studded baby ball bag
WHY: We're always on the lookout for those petite pouches to give our achin' backs a break. One of the cutest to catch our eye of late: this sweet studded mini ball of a bag, in a perfect cherry-red shade. Even more delicious is the price--but when bag guru Joy Gryson (Olivia Harris is the Gryson designer's diffusion line) is on the job, you know you can't go wrong.
