WHAT: Chloé flat knee-high boots
WHY: It's that time of year when your tall, flat brown boots become your go-to shoe...every day. And while you'll never abandon them, we could all use a little variety in our lives, non? Chloé's take for the season is just as warm, just as comfortable, just as perfect as your old faves, but in a fresh new color and with a sweet little braid decorating the heel. Looks like you've found your substitutes!

WHAT: Vince Camuto Paula platform
WHY: Shoe guru Vince Camuto has just launched his e-commerce website, and we know just where to start: The Paula. Basic black peep-toe it ain't--this platform, ankle-strap heel is covered in intricate cutouts for a sexier take on your go-to black heel, not to mention the leg-lengthening four-plus inch heel. But the fun doesn't stop there: newcomers to VinceCamuto.com, just by signing up for the website's mailing list, will be entered to win a $1,000 shopping spree on the site. We'll cross our fingers for you, darlings!

WHAT: Sachin & Babi for Ankasa sequin jacket
WHY: Because we're always looking for a way to put a more festive spin on the pieces we already know and love. What better way to do just that than with this sequined topper? Sheer sleeves, a cinched waist, and a grosgrain tie are sweet details that will work whether you're layering this sparkling piece over that hardworking LBD or a skinny trouser. As though you need more incentive (we don't), Sachin & Babi are donating 10% of the Ankasa store’s sales for the month of December to New Yorkers For Children. What are you waiting for?

WHAT: James Jeans 'Twiggy' in Black Cat
WHY: While the term "jeggings" (that's jeans plus leggings, darlings) strikes fear into our hearts--and brings us visions of Beyonce's not-so-chic days--we promise that there's no faux pas in store when it comes to James' Twiggy cut. Would we steer you wrong? Sure, they're a little stretchier than your average denim, and they're definitely snug, but all the better to tuck into your favorite tall boots, non?And as for the comfort factor--well, let's just say that once you get them on, you'll never want to take them off.
