WHAT: Givenchy gold sandal
WHY: We haven't been able to stop running all the couture shows through our heads this week, but the one we keep coming back to? Givenchy. (Just when we think we're over the harem pants thing, Riccardo Tisci has to go and make them in gold.) And though we may not be able to get our hands on that particular pair--it is a recession, darlings--these shoes will suffice...and then some.

WHAT: Lee Angel draped beaded bib necklace in coral
WHY: Turquoise and coral are our go-tos when we want to add a jolt of color to our summery wardrobes. You know how we love a statement necklace, so this Lee Angel number, made of a tangle of gorgeous strands of multicolored coral set on gold chain, should do the trick. Whether you're jazzing up a white tee or adding the final touch to your LBD...we dare you to take it off!

WHAT: St. Kilda Aussie diamond ring in rose gold
WHY: We don't know if it's the Marion Cotillard sightings or what, but for some reason we've had that Edith Piaf ditty stuck in our heads for days. Our solution? Embrace it--by way of this lovely little rose gold ring. Delicate enough to stack up with your others baubles (and happy to step to the background behind flashier cocktail rocks), we're thinking this ring may have joined the elusive ranks of an everyday piece. You'll be humming that song in no time...

WHAT: Lanvin Liz pouchette
WHY: With couture week kicking off in Paris maintenant, we have all things ornate, embellished, and over-the-top in our minds. And though our darling Alber isn't actually a participant (but isn't that an idea...), this gorgeous little pouchette has all the glamour of this week in spades. Gemstones, pearls, sequins--all the things that make our little Lanvin-loving hearts go pitter-patter.
