WHAT: LAI Dalia clutch
WHY: We seriously can't get enough of LAI's luxurious skins, from ostrich to lizard, crocodile, and the most sumptuous leathers. This glossy alligator skin clutch is no different, though we love the bright violet shade just as much as the exotic fabrication. It would look gorgeous jazzing up a simple LBD, but we love even more the idea of pairing it with another color--even a clashing one. You want your skins to stand out, non?

WHAT: Larkspur & Hawk Isabella ring
WHY: Surely, you already have a cocktail ring or two in your jewelry case--but you've never seen one quite this fabulous. Larkspur and Hawk's take on the sparkly bauble offers 18 karat rose gold, oxidized silver, black spinel, white topaz, and magenta foil for a jolt of bright color that will more than jazz up any ensemble. Cocktail ring, yes. Basic, no. We're in love.

WHAT: Donna Karan's Eldridge pleated leather bag
WHY: When we run into a wardrobe must-have that can do double-duty, we're that much more obsessed--so imagine our delight at Donna Karan's luxurious new Eldridge bag, which can be worn not one way but four! That's right, you can sport this sumptuous leather bag as a cross-body messenger, open tote, buttoned-up bucket, or buttoned-down pouchette...and every iteration is just as glam as the last.

WHAT: Gara Danielle double feather earrings
WHY: We've just discovered new online boutique 25Park.com, and we're more than a little obsessed. Elizabeth and James, Brian Reyes, Loeffler Randall, Nina Ricci--and don't even get us started on the gorgeous array of jewelry. This vintage-y pair by Gara Danielle look like they could have been plucked right from your chic grandmother's jewelry box...and what a find they would be! In 18 karat yellow gold and oxidized gold with just over 3 karats of rose-cut diamonds this is a pair you'll hang onto forever--until your granddaughter pinches them from you, that is!
