WHAT: Thuy blue lambskin and stingray shoe
WHY: We know Elvis sang about blue suede shoes, but we're pretty sure he'd be okay with these. Thuy's handmade, one-of-a-kind shoes combine gorgeous leather with one of our favorite textures--stingray!--for a stunning open-toe lace-up. Thuy paired them with a little black sock on the runway for a sweet look, but we think they'd look pretty incredible any way you wear them.

WHAT: Chan Luu sterling silver and leather wrap bracelet
WHY: Your wrists are always a tangle of bracelets and bangles--and with the boho trend heating up yet again, you're right on target. Why not add a little more to the mix? We love Chan Luu's wraparound leather bracelets--with just a hint of subtle silver sparkle, they'll look lovely piled on and mixed up with all your other baubles.

WHAT: Tt Collection Cameron's romper
WHY: Admit it, you love them. Rompers, jumpsuits, onsies--whatever you call them, this is one trend that manages to draw you to the stores. Not only is it an adorable (and comfortable!) summery look, but having a complete outfit in one piece is a simple luxury that makes anyone's day. Tt's take is tiny (not for the faint of heart!), with great, girly details like ruffles and itty-bitty gold buttons. No wonder we hear it's flying off the shelves at Scoop and Bendel...

WHAT: Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Liquid Dish Soap
WHY: OK, OK--this isn't exactly a fashion-y product, but in this dreadful economy, we're looking for less pricey pleasures. Given our eco-guilt over so many shoeboxes and shopping bags, we're reducing our pollution footprint with Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products--namely, this aromatherapeutic dish soap that is the only one to keep our manicure in tact. And it's 100% biodegradable and non-toxic, meaning that a simply dish session doesn't result in damage to our environment. Chic! Simple! Green! Enjoy.
