WHAT: Lanvin's Gourmet 22 Faubourg tote
WHY: It's a New York fact: When the temperature starts rising, so do the moods of the cityfolk. Summer is the cheeriest time of all (even in this ville of cynics!), and if this Lanvin tote doesn't please you, well, you're just out of look. The color! Alber's joyous sketch! If there's one cause we can get behind this season, it's definitely "Lanvin Toute L’Année."

WHAT: Hermès night sandal in gold metallic Nappa leather
WHY: The sandals that the mythical Hermès sported may have been embellished with a certain pair of wings--but we prefer this more pared-down pair anyway. These flats are the perfect refresher from last season's ubiquitous gladiator; you'll pair them with everything from your cropped cigarette pants to your cutoff jean shorts and flippy, flirty minis. Who needs to fly, anyway?

WHAT: Marion Mercer's vintage Italian cube bracelet
WHY: Ever since vintage e-boutique Marion Mercer launched in November, it's been a must-browse in our online shopping routine. From '70s YSL to impeccable Dior and Valentino treasures, this little shop has done all that digging for us--but our favorite finds might just be the jewels. This Italian cube bracelet, with its chunky gold and turquoise cube charm, is a perfect standout piece with just the right vintage charm.

WHAT: Miu Miu studded x-band sandal
WHY: From the cracked patent leather finish to the tiny gold studs, these are hardly just another pair of summer sandals. These sexy stilettos are tough enough to pair with your skinniest ripped black denim, but don't count them out with your sweeter sundresses, either! Miuccia, as usual, can do no wrong.
