Think outside of the box, darlings. Oversized totes and satchels are all too ubiquitous, so consider trading up to a more petite box-shaped clutch, freeing you to juggle with that oversized coat instead. May we suggest an eco-friendly Emm Kuo detailed with geometric stones constructed with shell fragments sourced from the beaches of Filipino province Cebu? Mosaic-esque and madly chic!
WHAT: Kate Spade New York Sprinkles Lip Crayons
WHY: When not just any hue will do, whip out these Kate Spade and Poppy King lip crayons. Available in three shades of crimson, feel free to channel your inner child (you know, the one who used to dress up in mom’s frocks and make-up). Warning: These are not your average Crayola crayons, so you’re best off not testing these punchy scribblers on white walls or in preschool classrooms. Which isn’t too much of a concern, since you’ll want to keep the fun focused on your lips!

WHAT: Jonathan Saunders Axel Polka-Dot Stretch-Cotton Twill Pencil Skirt…WHY: Saunders’ polka-dot pencil skirt could potentially get mistaken for a Seurat pointillism painting. While you wouldn’t wear Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte plastered across your midsection, Saunders’ play on dot art mixes prints with feminine silhouettes. You’re sure to be on point in this trim bit of twill, from an art gallery shindig to a dinner date situation. Viva la versatility!…AVAILABLE: $690, Net-A-Porter.com…
WHAT: Peter Pilotto Geometric Print Scarf…WHY: Some of us at chez Daily are staunch subscribers to the sartorial philosophy that a scarf can truly salvage a lame outfit; on the laziest or craziest of days, a kicky neckwarming accoutrement can function, for better or worse, as the only redeeming and at least semi-chic element of a getup. Add this pretty, mixed-pattern Peter Pilotto wrap star to the repertoire at your own risk: black-on-black-on-black ensembles may become all the more ubiquitous with this cashmere-Modal blend to punch things up. No complaints there…AVAILABLE: $520, KirnaZabete.com…
