WHAT: Free Fingers by Nina cashmere gloves
WHY: Because with all the BlackBerry-ing and iPhone-ing you're doing these days, fingerless gloves are the only way to go. Why these, you ask? After the Nina in question was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago, she took up knitting as a therapeutic hobby. The hobby quickly turned into a business--and now, Free Fingers by Nina donates 100% percent of its profits to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). This darling red pair is from the line's brand-new Valentine's Day collection, but there are plenty to choose from; check out all the collections at www.freefingersbynina.com.

WHAT: Maison Martin Margiela 23-karat gold plated ring set
WHY: Beyonce may have sung about putting a ring on it, but what about four? In true Margiela fashion, the house has created a set of gold bands cooler than either a single ring or the ubiquitous knuckle rings. Wear a couple or wear them all at once--for a slightly futuristic take on your fingers.

WHAT: ALICE by Temperley Mini Mimi dress
WHY: We just can't help it: we're suckers for nautical stripes, and we know you are, too. Add to that your love for Alice Temperley's girly wares and the lower prices of her new ALICE by Temperley line, and you certainly won't be able to resist the Mini Mimi. It's screaming to be layered with leather jackets or chunky cardigans now (hello, Fashion Week uniform!) and come summer, you'll be the sweetest thing on the block when it's paired with ballet flats.
AVAILABLE: Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills, 877-634-6263

WHAT: Malini Murjani's Megan clutch
WHY: In a sea of beaded and bedazzled evening bags, this Malini Murjani take--perfectly simple, yet anything but boring--just feels right. The tortoise shell resin does double duty as city chic or resort-appropriate, and the coral turnlock? An inspired finishing touch. Don't let it out of your clutches!
