You know where to shop.

WHAT: Umbrelli's Domani umbrella
WHY: You've gone through too many $10 bodega ones bought hastily (usually when it's already raining) and broken shortly thereafter. Ready for something a bit more adult? Enter Umbrelli umbrellas, handmade in Northern Italy and each available in a limited number and decorated with a gorgeous image on the inside. This beachy scene inspires happy thoughts even when the weather is dreary.

WHAT: Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti's cuff
WHY: Sparkle often proves irresistible. The challenge, of course, is arriving at a look that's not excessively sweet--luckily, this Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti cuff achieves just the right note. The chunky shape renders it a little bit tough, but the overall result is glamorous thanks to the tarnished setting and irregularly-shaped stones.
