Phillip Lim dresses up a tee--with a twist
WHAT: 3.1 Phillip Lim asymmetrical draped tee
WHY: Some days are jeans-and-t-shirt days, and there's just no way around it. But who says going casual has to mean going grungy? This draped cotton tee will be in heavy rotation in your closet, we promise--with everything from the aforementioned denim to a snazzy sequined miniskirt--but you'll never leave the comfort of your favorite slouchy tee.

WHAT: Lulu Frost deco bow dress clip earrings
WHY: Whether you've finished your shopping or not, that whole "holiday spirit" thing has become unavoidable--not that you're complaining. It's time to give in to the urge to wrap everything in colored paper and bedeck it with bows, but don't forget yourselves, darlings! We'll give you the pass on the paper, but these sweet bow earrings from Lisa Salzer of Lulu Frost are too perfect to pass up.

WHAT: Samantha Wills' Snake Ring
WHY: 'Tis the season for a bit of statement jewelry. Cartier began the whole animals-as-finger-candy trend, with that legendary Panther collection, but we love Samantha Wills' cost-effective take on the idea. This slightly devious, slightly sparkly bauble will take all the attention away from your manicure. Added bonus? No other jewels required.

WHAT: Roarke le Charlot necklace
WHY: Because our delicate little pendants, much as we may love them, just aren't cutting it anymore. We need bigger, more sparkling, can't-take-your-eyes-off it glamour, and Roarke's stunning necklaces do just that--with the ease of a bandanna (the intricate beadwork is backed on fabric). We've seen them sported with casual day dresses to serious formalwear, and love them all the while. Isn't it time to tie one on?
