WHAT: BE&D Garbo studded shoulder bag
WHY: The Milan Fall runways had countless nods to the raging '80s so why not be ahead of the trend? This bag--black or taupe--will add a edgy vibe to any outfit, day or night. Case in point: the detachable strap when removed transforms it into a clutch. With buttery leather on the outside and soft suede inside, its definitely ultra luxe too. We're sure Thierry would approve.

WHAT: 3.1 Phillip Lim jewel neck dress
WHY: The Nor'easter has passed and soon the temps will be climbing once again. And that means it's time to update your spring wardrobe--if you haven't already. This silk ballerina dress from Lim is right on trend and perfect for cocktail parties too. The designer's dedication to ”simplicity, individuality and femininity" certainly shines through so you can wear it in countless ways year round. Plus, it comes with its own built in "statement necklace" so how can you refuse?

WHAT: La Mer SPF 30 UV Protecting Fluid
WHY: In the hope that the current Nor'eastern tearing across the coast is this winter's last, The Daily is happily looking towards the coming spring. And naturally it brings up visions of bright skies...and SPF concerns. So it's La Mer to the rescue once again! The latest treatment will help your skin with UVA/UVB protection but still keep it moisturized and radiant. The highly scientifc mixture includes various gemstones to absorb and transform light energy into green light which in turn promotes anti-oxidant activity while photonic spheres capture light and deflect the damaging rays--we told you it was highly scientific. Smart seaweeds (natch) are incorporated to make sure skin is properly hydrated and soothed. Plus, it's delightfully lightweight so you can apply it before your morning makeup as a primer or give your Crème de la Mer a boost by adding it as a top layer.

WHAT: Giles & Brother pied-de-biche sterling silver and brass cuff
WHY: We've had our eye on Philip Crangi for ages now, but he never ceases to impress. Between his eponymous line and his secondary line, Giles & Brother, Crangi creates pieces that are offbeat but always chic. We're swooning over this horse-hoof cuff, especially in the combination of sterling silver and brass.
