WHAT: Sang A large River tote
WHY: We've been trying, for the sakes of our backs, to downsize our lives and stick to smaller bags. But there are some days--traipsing around Paris with stacks of show invites, peut-être?--that you just need a little more room. This Sang A tote in a gorgeous gray python gives you the convenience of being able to throw everything from your backup Repettos to your Smythson notebooks to go, but it's infinitely chicer than one of those million grubby canvas totes you carry your groceries in. Post fashion month, it's back to les petites...but for now, bring on the big bags!

WHAT: Aesa's Ascension necklace
WHY: You may remember biology and anatomy classes as less style, more studying--but then you probably didn't have this necklace while you were cracking those books. This stunning Aesa piece recalls a perfect gold spine. Unsure of body parts as jewelry? Fear not: the effect is less grusome, more organic. Med school, anyone?

WHAT: Christian Louboutin's Lolo pump
WHY: Ok, so with a heel this towering, you may not be quite so tiny anymore--but find your inner ballerina with these sweet but sexy pumps, courtesy of Monsieur Louboutin. The pale pink suede, squared-off toe, and cord bow all cheekily channel those ballet slippers of your dancing days. No tutu required!

WHAT: Judith Leiber's crystal-embellished jaguar clutch
WHY: Because it's benefit season, silly! No really. If this fit our invites, we'd take it to Paris Fashion Week and wear this jaguar clutch with pride. Leiber always caters to our whimsy, and this is a splendid interpretation of all the animal print we're seeing for fall. Attention, stylists--this one is destined for the red carpet...
