ROCKIN' RESIN: Sick of always smooshing your lipstick or crushing your compact after a few too many champagne cocktails? Tory Burch, lover of uptown and downtown ladies alike, has saved the day with her adorable Kerry Resin clutch collection, guaranteed to protect your cosmetics from harm. In tough Tortoise or sleek Black with gold logo medallions, Tory's resin clutch can safely reside within your bag until it's nighttime debut. Find at Tory Burch in Greenwich.
PLENTIFUL POPPY: Coach has released a quirky, cutesy, "budget friendly" (starts in the $40's, with the highest priced item around $600, so we don't really see how this is more "budget-friendly" than their regular line!) collection called, "Poppy." While most pieces look like they've crossed paths with Heatherette's leftovers, the Poppy Jacket ($398USD) is a shockingly pleasant addition to the Coach family. Think Gossip Girl meets Chanel, even though we're pretty sure GG is very familiar, like on a first-name-basis-familiar, with the Kaiser, but you get what we mean. Silk cuffs, gold buttons, and classic schoolboy appeal. Remember the J.Crew blazer that screamed Balenciaga that everyone was falling over themselves to get two years ago? Or the Club Monaco Chanel-esque cardigan from last fall? Well this is this year's version of "Designer Inspired" mall-ware, so learn your lesson and pre-order, don't miss out.
LIGHTEN UP: We just love tinted moisturizer in the summer, but sometimes it just lacks a certain something. No worries, Jouer, a favorite of Hills' gal Audrina Patridge (let's face it, it's her job to look consistently "camera-ready") has the most fabulous Luminizing Moisture Tint ($38USD) which not only gives you serious coverage with a radiant glow (go light on your t-zone, but layer on under your brow and above your cheek bones for amazing definition.) Goes on like whipped air and lasts all day in four blend-able skin tones. Buy at exclusive retailer Henri Bendel, or Online.
