WHAT: Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Success is a Job in New York fragrance
WHY: We don't need to tell you that we're already obsessed with Bond No. 9 and their map-of-New York approach to fragrance, but their latest scent is even more covetable. Andy Warhol's first assignment in the ‘50s was an illustrator was for a Glamour magazine article, entitled “Success is a Job in New York”--and the title was later used for a book about Warhol’s early career. Now, it's the name of Bond's money-centric scent, a warm and spicy mix of coriander, cardamom, mandarin, and bergamot, with notes of jasmine, tuberose, rose, vanilla, and amber. What can we say? We're material girls, after all...

WHAT: Valentino satin bow-front clutch
WHY: Valentino's bow are as iconic as the house's red dress, adorning frocks, shoes, and bags of all sizes. But we're loving the updated, even oragami-esque take on the motif that decorates this emerald-green satin clutch. It's a little less girly, a little more sharp then the big, looping ribbons we've known and loved from Valentino--which makes it perfect for those nights that you want to toughen up...but just a touch.

WHAT: Miu Miu cabachon slide
WHY: Vertically challenged? Not with these Miu Miu stunners. The platform and nearly 5-inch heel will propel you to heights previously unreachable--bringing a new side to concerts and crowds. Oh, and did we mention how gorgeous they are? Gold studs and red, green and blue jewels make for some seriously ornate footwear.
