WHAT: Jordann Jewelry's magnolia necklace
WHY: With its charming, interlocking magnolia charms, this delicate Jordann Jewelry necklace is already hard enough to resist. But when you learn that 25% of the proceeds from the sale of each necklace will be donated to Locks of Love, an organization that provides hairpieces to financially-disadvantaged children suffering from medical hair loss, you'll find even more excuses to splurge. The magnolias in the necklace are meant to represent perseverance and dignity, with one flower representing the person that has donated the hair and the other representing the child who will receive the prosthesis.

WHAT: Alternative Apparel
WHY: This brand offers you plenty of ways to close out Earth Week. Not only do the super-soft tees achievethat perfect borrowed-from-your-boyfriend charm, but the brand has launched a new campaign called Think | Earth, featuring profiles of eco-smart chicsters (like Adrian Grenier and Shane West) and projects, like L.A.'s 100% green Akasha Restaurant and Josh Kelley's on-tour recycling.

WHAT: Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Music Box Set
WHY: It's officially spring, so why not take this blossoming idea a bit more literally? Viktor & Rolf's new Flowerbomb set--the parfum, body lotion and mini bottle of fragrance--is a stellar trio housed in a real music box (bien sûr!). The scent's mixture of sambac jasmine, orchid, freesia, rose notes will make you smell like a walking garden. If you're not into the sweet pink look, try the limited-edition parfum in a sparkling black glitter bottle for $135 instead.

WHAT: Temperley London's golden apple bag
WHY: If the old adage is true, this will certainly keep the fashion police far, far away. This quirky evening bag will be your go-to to add a touch of whimsy to the chic (but let's face it: not terribly exciting) little black dress you always grab for a night out. Just big enough for a lipstick, a credit card, and a cell phone--what else do you need?--with a wonderfully long chain strap, you'll surely be sporting this enough to keep the physicians at bay.
