WHAT: Comptoir des Cotonniers Green It-Bag
WHY: You know Comptoir des Cotonniers as a chic French import boutique with everything you need to look à la Française. But what you didn't know is that the store is dedicated to ethical and women's rights causes, Fair Trade organizations, and most recently, Al Gore's Climate Project. $15 from each sale of this perfect tote will go directly to the cause...which we love almost as much as the tongue-in-cheek saying on the front.

WHAT: Hue port opaque tights
WHY: We know, you lusted over Phillip Lim's fall collection, too. And though our wardrobes are slowly but surely transitioning to spring (disregarding the recent snowstorm suffered by you New York chicettes), it's still a bit too chilly to be sporting those minis sans tights. Be ahead of the fall curve with these port tights--Mr. Lim chose them for his show, so it's good enough for us. We love them dearly--though we're still crossing our fingers for a thaw...

WHAT: SUNSMILE by Beach Bum
WHY: This teeth whitening system was one of the most requested services at our very own Daily Suite during New York's Fash Week and we certainly know why. In lieu of the time-consuming process at many dentist locations or nightly home remedies, it only takes 15 minutes to get noticeably whiter teeth with SUNSMILE. Visit your local Beach Bum and you'll receive a pre-packed, mouthpiece gel with the solution already inside. Then just pop it in and after a few minutes of blue LED light shone onto the mouthpiece, you're done! Plus, they sell maintenance products so you can keep them in pearly white condition.

WHAT: Loeffler Randall Faye Perforated Shaft Flat Boot
WHY: With spring on the horizon, it's time to start switching those boots. Nude trends were all over the runways (think Givenchy, Stella, McQueen) and this design from Loeffler Randall is a perfect blend of trendy but practical, warmer temp-friendly. The Italian made boot--also available in Safari brown--will definitely transform from day to night. Plus, the lack of a heel is crucial for on-the-go chicettes.
