WHAT: Smythe wool-blend equestrian jacket
WHY: We know, we all had a great time with the Halloween festivities this weekend, too--but now it's time to get back to basics. Put the feather boas, face paint, and otherwise outrageous costumes away, and as soon as you slip on this luxe wool blazer you won't look back. It may look basic, but with details like a cut-away front, three flap pockets, and leather elbow patches (we love!), we can guarantee you won't want to take it off. Until next Halloween...

WHAT: Rimowa's Topas Titanium Case
WHY: Because we travel anything but lightly. With The Daily's luggage weighing upwards of 70 pounds during those three-week-long jaunts to Europe for the collections, we've gone through more suitcases than we care to mention. It's time to bring in the big guns. Rimowa's masterful case only weighs 9.7 pounds--bonus--and packs in everything we need. The best part? The handle is sturdy enough so it won't be mangled by an Air France handler (cough) struggling to lift it. All this from the brand that launched wooden luggage in Germany in 1898! Speaking of--have you booked your Thanksgiving tickets yet?

WHAT: Suzanna Dai Antwerp necklace
WHY: Her jewelry may be inspired by exotic locations from St. Petersburg to Monte Carlo, but it's the Antwerp variety we currently can't get enough of. This stunning piece is practically a look all on its own; pair it with the simplest of blouses or an equally over-the-top dress, and either way all eyes will be on vous. We think it's time for a Belgian vacation...

WHAT: Lanvin patent oxford bootie
WHY: The Daily does not endorse that you puddle-jump in your Lanvin--but the truth is, patent leather is much more resilient to the kind of rain currently plaguing Manhattan than suede or canvas. These gorgeous two-tone patent oxfords by Monsieur Elbaz are just the thing to stand up to a few pesky raindrops...and put us in a much better mood at the same time.
