WHAT: Aquatalia by Marvin K Giggle Specchio Patent Rain Bootie
WHY: We got a taste of springtime earlier this week in New York--and now it's raining. But take heart, darlings: there are more options out there than those chunky wellies you've sported all winter long. Aquatalia's heeled take looks suspiciously like those ankle booties you've been loving, but you won't ruin them when you go puddle jumping. What more could a die-hard chicster ask for?

WHAT: Maloles stamped lizard Cassandra shoe
WHY: With spring just around the corner, you can't wait to put your boots back into hiding, go out for a fabulous pedicure, and slip on some toe-baring shoes. Allow us to introduce you to a must-have pair by Maloles. Not only is each piece made using an artisan shoemaking practice called ‘Sacchetto,’ which offers a glove-like construction to envelop the foot giving more agility to the shoes (perfect for post-Fashion Month soreness), but the luxe lizard finish has plenty of chic to go around.
AVAILABLE: Stil Boutique, Chestnut Hill, MA, 617-527-7845

WHAT: Ray-Ban Caravan sunglasses
WHY: Chicsters still in New York are praying to every sun god out there that this gorgeous weather sticks. We're all of a sudden going bare-legged again, craving new sundresses--and though we're not going to pack away our winter gear just yet (wouldn't want to jinx anything!), we are in the market for a new pair of shades. A return to the classics seems in order this season, so why not try these Ray-Bans from J.Crew? You can get them online, yes, but we recommend swinging by the Soho Men's Shop in person; you can pick up a perfect oversized oxford to go with those short shorts...
