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...

WHAT: Maje Goteborg suede vest
WHY: The weather in New York can't seem to make up its mind recently, with 80-degree and 60-degree days alternating and just days to go before October hits. Do we carry on sporting our white jeans, Labor Day be damned? Do we take our coats out of summer storage? We can't answer these questions, darlings, but one thing is for sure: this suede moto vest by French favorite Maje has you covered. Topping off a floaty dress or layered over a cozy henley, you'll be looking chic no matter what the weatherman says.

WHAT: Burberry leather woven chain necklace
WHY: We can't help it. We're inundated with Burberry chicness today after Chris Bailey's big London show, and we're loving every second. Stuck stateside? Desolée, darlings--but try this necklace on for size, and feel the sorrows subside. The chunky metal chain is interwoven with fine leather strands for a look that is a tough as it is luxe.

WHAT: Albertus Swanepoel's Duchamp fedora
WHY: It's high time to break out the chapeaux, so naturally, a bit of editing was in order. Given that only one good topper will fit in those trusty Europe-bound valises, then go with the best--in this case, Albertus Swanepoel's rabbit hair felt fedora, cheekily named after the artist who immoralized the style. While we love it with equally surreal Yohji or Comme oxfords, this baby is equally divine with girlish dresses. Dare you try it for evening? Too bad it won't arrive in time for tonight's New Yorkers for Children gala...
