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!

Sienna Miller's 2005 go-to can be yours once again
WHAT: Kooba's Sienna bag
WHY: Take yourself back to 2005. What was the It bag on everyone's arm? Not a Proenza PS1, not a Fendi Baguette, not a Chloé Paddington...but a Kooba. Sienna Miller brought the style plenty of attention back in the day (even lending her name!), and now, it's back in action. The company has relaunched the Sienna in a new range of exotic skins for a fresh spin on this nostalgic must-have.

Green tourmaline pops against black and white diamonds
WHAT: Jemma Wynne Modern Deco drop earrings with green tourmaline and black and white diamonds
WHY: It's hard to argue with black and white diamonds--especially when they frame such a gorgeous green stone. Hitting the awards show circuit? You won't be sorry you picked these. Staying at home for the red carpet festivities? The Jemma Wynne stunners are still just the thing to take that cocktail LBD to the next level of glam.
AVAILABLE: Jemma Wynne, 212 980 8500

Reece Hudson cuts out the flash--but still makes a splash
WHAT: Reece Hudson No. 1 clutch
WHY: It's easy for clutches to be a bit...precious. Crystals, bow, metallics--it's not that you don't love a gleaming Judith Leiber now and then, but sometimes a bit more pared-down is just perfect. Enter Reece Hudson, a line of bags just as luxe as they are rugged, for a downtown, casual vibe that's still completely chic. (Oversized, neutral colored, and so cool--could we have found the perfect Fashion Week clutch?) The brand is one to watch, for sure; come Fashion Week, they'll hold a presentation in a private apartment on Astor Place. You know what we'll be carrying...
AVAILABLE: Castor & Pollux, New York
