WHAT: Fendi leather zipper-pocket shorts
WHY: Yes, it's cold outside. Yes, maybe a bit too cold for your average short-shorts--but then, who said these are your average short-shorts? These Fendi shorts are made of the most luxe leather in a bright orange shade, which will be perfect come spring with a crisp white shirt or tee. But if you, comme nous, are too impatient to wait until spring to wear the beauties, try them over a cozy pair of gray cable-knit tights and tall boots.

This necklace is actually hand-crocheted 925 Italian gold vermeil, woven into a perfectly pretty net that will stun against a bare neckline. As for the burnished gold shade? All the better for that delicate, vintage vibe, we say--but if you're looking for something a bit more shiny and new, the look comes in silver or brighter gold as well.
