WHAT: Lulu Frost black stone and metallic fringe necklace
WHY: Lulu Frost's quirky, chunky treasures never cease to delight us, but our latest must-have? This fringey necklace, studded with oversized black stones. It's glamorous, but with a sense of humor--we can't wait to sport it with something equally unexpected, like an oversized button-down or Alex Wang-esque sweatpants and heels.

WHAT: Balmain zip bootie
WHY: You have to admit: you're a bit tired of Balmainia. Another seqined, body-con rocker chick dress on a model-type strutting the red carpet may even make you yearn for the days of the trapeze dress (ok, maybe that's a bit too far). Why not keep 'em guessing by echewing the look du moment (by which we mean give your dangerously sharp-shouldered military jacket a rest) in favor of a more unexpected Balmain offering, like these zipped up ankle booties? Die-hard chicsters might not even recognize them as Balmain--which makes them all the more alluring, n'est-ce pas?

WHAT: Cecelia de Bucourt studded fringe scarf
WHY: It's the eternal summer conundrum: the more the temperature rises outdoors, the higher the AC gets cranked indoors. So while you're sweltering in next to nothing on your walk to work, you freeze as soon as you settle in at your desk. Short of stashing your parka at the office, what's a girl to do? Enter this scarf. Brass metal studs and metal link fringe make it just as edgy as any of your chunky gold jewelry, but triple layers of jersey will surely take the chill off.

WHAT: Marc Jacobs frame wallet sequined purse
WHY: We've heard that Marc has busy recently creating an ensemble for Miss Piggy for a Glamorama appearance in Chicago, but we wonder if he's thought about accessories? This petite purse is perfect for Piggy's, um, svelte frame, and we think the hot pink sequins are right up her alley. And while you're outfitting the fashion icon with this amazing pouchette...can you send one our way, as well?
