WHAT: Lauren Urstadt quilted fingerless gloves
WHY: Practically speaking, because it's cold outside. And because you'd like to have the use of your fingers even when it's cold outside. But let's just push all that practicality aside for a moment, shall we? These gloves are just so bad, and we mean that in the best possible way. Quilted! Fingerless! There isn't any way to get closer to Karl...

WHAT: Anndra Neen studded metal clutch
WHY: No, not metallic--this clutch really is metal. This hammered silver clutch has a spring hinge that closes the top flap, making this one accessory that's tough enough to stand up to quite a beating--and with studs and embellishments adorning the back, we think it might look even better once it gets banged-up a little! So while you've always been taught to take care of your precious things, let yourself off the hook a little..this rockin' clutch can take it.

WHAT: Smythe wool-blend equestrian jacket
WHY: We know, we all had a great time with the Halloween festivities this weekend, too--but now it's time to get back to basics. Put the feather boas, face paint, and otherwise outrageous costumes away, and as soon as you slip on this luxe wool blazer you won't look back. It may look basic, but with details like a cut-away front, three flap pockets, and leather elbow patches (we love!), we can guarantee you won't want to take it off. Until next Halloween...

WHAT: Rimowa's Topas Titanium Case
WHY: Because we travel anything but lightly. With The Daily's luggage weighing upwards of 70 pounds during those three-week-long jaunts to Europe for the collections, we've gone through more suitcases than we care to mention. It's time to bring in the big guns. Rimowa's masterful case only weighs 9.7 pounds--bonus--and packs in everything we need. The best part? The handle is sturdy enough so it won't be mangled by an Air France handler (cough) struggling to lift it. All this from the brand that launched wooden luggage in Germany in 1898! Speaking of--have you booked your Thanksgiving tickets yet?
