WHAT: Mulberry Bayswater patent leather bag
WHY: The Mulberry Bayswater's been hot on the scene for ages--but never this hot. In a bright red shade, with a luxe crocodile finish, this classic tote has gotten quite the makeover, and we couldn't be more thrilled. What better way to spice up a less-than-thrilling ensemble? And naturally, as we have fashion week constantly on the brain, we can't help but note that it might just be the perfect size for lugging around all those invites and gift bag swag...

WHAT: White + Warren leopard V cardigan
WHY: We've always been wary about too much leopard--a little bit goes a long way with animal prints, non? Somehow, though, we've completely fallen for this luxe cashmere cardigan by out knit go-to, White + Warren. The print is plenty sassy, but the gray tones it down just a bit--and we're thinking it will look perfectly Mad Men with a full skirt and ladylike heels or off-duty chic thrown with a pair of beat-up boyfriend jeans. Of course, if you want to go all out and throw it over your sexiest corset dress, that might work, too...

WHAT: Bond No. 9 Andy Warhol Success is a Job in New York fragrance
WHY: We don't need to tell you that we're already obsessed with Bond No. 9 and their map-of-New York approach to fragrance, but their latest scent is even more covetable. Andy Warhol's first assignment in the ‘50s was an illustrator was for a Glamour magazine article, entitled “Success is a Job in New York”--and the title was later used for a book about Warhol’s early career. Now, it's the name of Bond's money-centric scent, a warm and spicy mix of coriander, cardamom, mandarin, and bergamot, with notes of jasmine, tuberose, rose, vanilla, and amber. What can we say? We're material girls, after all...
