What Our Editors Really Want This Season

Always on the lookout for a little pick-me-up? Us, too. In fact, we're of the belief that money can sometimes buy you happiness, especially when it comes in the form of a beautiful pair of trousers that makes you feel a million feet tall, a cheeky bracelet that makes you smile everytime you look at it, or a pair of heels that you bet Cinderella would be jealous of. Check out what we editors are obsessed with this fall… Just be nice at checkout—we call first dibs!

Christene Barberich, Editor-in-Chief

Suno Wide-Leg Trousers—"All my people know how much I positively ache for dreamy, flowy trousers, and these are like the motherlode. It'd be so cute with a shrunken cable-knit sweater and some high-heeled loafers."
$702, available at Suno.

Marni Braided Belt—"Granted, this is pretty pricey for a belt, but when you consider you'll literally be wearing it FOREVER, that's a pretty good return on your dollar."
$195, available at Net-a-Porter.

Warby Parker Tortoise Sunglasses—"These shades are such an awesome deal. The only issue is choosing between the black and the tortoise, which I find infinitely chic."
$95, available at Warby Parker.

Laura Mercier Tinted Illuminating Moisturizer—"I was recently on a shoot for the Outnet.com, and the writer for their site had the most amazingly glowy skin I'd ever seen. She told me this was the cause....and I immediately ordered it online!"
$42, available at Sephora.

Apple MacBook Air—"I finally broke down and retired my 5-year old laptop for this gorgeous slip of a laptop. And man, with the amount of traveling I do, it's already changed my life...sometimes I forget it's even in my purse!"
$999, available at Apple.

Ellis Faas Glazed Lips—"I am newly in love with this lipstick by Ellis Faas. It doesn't have a name, just a number, L101, but it's the prettiest and most long-lasting fresh shade of red. The pen also looks deceptively dangerous, which I kind of like."
$35, available at Sephora.

Loeffler Randall Velvet Lace-Up Sandals—"I have a very long list of velvet shoes I'm considering this fall, and these divine little lace-ups from Loeffler Randall are at the tippy-top. These could make practically anything in my closet seem extra expensive."
$595, available at Loeffler Randall.

ASOS Gold Stud Earrings—"For next to nothing, these simple studs ooze oodles of sophistication."
$13.97, available at ASOS.

Zara Cashmere Sweater—"I just bought one of these for fall, but now I'm thinking I will buy another...the quality is seriously off the charts, and I love how simple and elegant the shape and weight is."
$129, available at Zara.

Piera Gelardi, Creative Director

Cobra Society Hand-Woven Boots—"These are on my fantasy dream wish list. The hand-woven Moroccan patterns are just too fantastic and I bet they'd look even better broken in."
$795, available at Net-A-Porter.

Arnsdorf Crystal Pattern iPhone Case—"I loved this cool crystal pattern on the runway, and now I can have it on my iPhone!"
$35, available at Society6.

Lulu Organics Hair Powder—"I have the mini-sized version in my bag for hair emergencies. I recently cut my hair short, and if I wash it too much, it turns into a puff ball. I use this delicious-smelling powder in-between washes for a slept-in look minus the grease."
$30, available at Catbird.

Nektar De Stagni Beaded Bracelets—"I love these playful-pretty bracelets! Smiley faces + pearls = brilliant."
from $69, available at Nektar De Stagni.

Rachel Comey Halstead Blouse—"Printed blouses are a closet staple of mine. This one has such a beautiful shape and would look amazing with a floaty skirt."
$403, available at La Garconne.

Steven Alan Randall Coat—"Blanket coat, come to mama! This has a nice, simple shape with the fun addition of some blanket stripes."

$498, available at Steven Alan.

Graf Picture Show iPhone App—"I'm a photo app obsessee! This is my latest love—it does beautiful light leak effects and allows you to alter photos à la carte and add your own borders."
$1.99, available at iTunes.

Topshop Geometric Tulip Dress—"Fall florals and I get along really well. This sheer geometric tulip-print dress would go really awesomely with a nubby cardigan, a wool hat, ankle boots, and thick socks."
$130, available at Topshop.

Helmut Newton 'Polaroids' Book—"The cover photo is just so fricking awesome, and who doesn't love an amazing Polaroid? These are all test shots from some of Helmut Newton's most iconic set ups."
$59.99, available at Taschen.

Forzieri Yellow Leather Gloves—"I'm on the hunt for bright-colored leather gloves on eBay at the moment. Nothing like a flash of color to brighten up a winter day."

$87, available at Forzieri.

Club Monaco Dora Bag—"I'm a big fan of no-frills vintage bags and these are an A in my book."
$189, available at Shopbop

Connie Wang, Global Editor

Zara Peep Toe Ankle Boot—"There's something so perverse about a white shoe. I guarantee that they'd get dirty within five minutes of me wearing them, but I can't help but love the guys."
$159, available at Zara.

Fallon Mixed Earring Set—"I've been wanting to pierce one of my ears in a triangle formation (I've got big earlobes, so it'll fit!), and then wear mismatched earrings. These would be an awesome starter kit."
$75, available at Ssense.

Wu Shirt Club Rick Ross Tee—"I go through T-shirts like serviettes. I'm into Wu Shirt's subscription-like service, especially because it features hand-drawn tees like this. Check out Rick's cute boobies!"
$200 for a 1-year membership, available at WuShirtClub.

Topshop Velvet Metal Frame—"This bag could easily replace all my other 'going-out' clutches for fall."

Carven Gargoyle Print Pullover—"Some people have dream bags. Others have dream dresses. I have dream ugly sweaters."
$798, available at My Theresa

$36, available at AreaWare.

Oak St. Marks Candle—"I live on St. Marks and 1st, so I technically could just open my window. I hate candles that smell like flowers and candy and other frou-frou things. I'd much rather my apartment smell like 'deep redwood, suede leather, aromatic incense, and a fresh pear liquor scent.'"
$68, available at Oak.

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour—"Me and lip products do not get along. These have been the only ones that don't make me look like I have Kool-Aid mouth at the end of the day."
$15, available at Clinique.

Kristian Laliberte, Senior Editor

The Blackberry Bold 9900—"I've already made my commitment to Blackberry clear, which is why I am sweating the new super-skinny Bold, which is actually the thinnest Blackberry, ever. My friend got one when it launched in the end of August, and I've been jealous watching him use the touchscreen and the bigger keyboard. I don't like being jealous."
$299.99, available at T Mobile.

SWIMS Charles Full Brogue—"I have a feeling it's going to be a rainy fall, but I hate wearing those big-ass rubber boots. Here's where this totally water-repellent brogue comes in. It's classic, but that strip of orange adds some style to any storm. Bring it on, Mother Nature."

Polaroid "Lady Gaga" Photographer Printer—"All you iPhone users can suck it. Even if you think BBM is overrated (which it isn't), you can't deny the dopeness that is this Polaroid printer. I am not sure how much Lady Gaga had to do with it, but regardless, even the most hardcore Luddite could figure it out. It prints out your Blackberry photos using Bluetooth (look Ma, no wires!) in a cool, vintage-looking Polaroid print."
$169.99, available at Bloomingdale's.

Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm SPF 45—"Clean skin. Period. This M.D. has put it all into one quick tube, meaning my medicine closet is looking very zen. It's a one-step balm that's part moisturizer, part heavy duty sunscreen, part serum. No synthetics, either. Easy, breezy….you know what comes next."
$39 for 1.4 oz, available at Sephora.

Preppy: Cultivating Ivy Style—"I'm from a town in Massachusetts that's preppy with a capital P, and I'm constantly getting friendly ribbing at work about my love of sweaters around the shoulders, rolled-up pants, and yes, occasionally, popped collars. This book really explores "Ivy style," with a surprising amount of historical insight, plus glossy pictures of everything from Michael Bastian's stunning models to vintage Brooks Brothers' advertising."
$45, available at Rizzoli.

Linnea's Lights Fireside Candle—"I'm a sucker for a good candle, and I've recently discovered this line—it's all-natural, hand-poured soy wax, with cool, recycled packaging (and matches included!). For autumn, the Fireside scent makes your whole apartment feel cozy and warm, plus it lasts 60 hours."
$30, available at Candles Off Main.
16 of 16
Balenciaga L'Essence Eau de Parfum—"While this might not be billed for guys, I love the way Balenciaga's second fragrance smells for going out at night—it's not too heavy, with notes of leathery violet that really stay with you. Mixed with something a bit more masculine—Odin, say, or Creed—it's very fall, and very sexy. The bottle, too, is sophisticated, and has a nice amount of weight to it." 
$130 for 2.5 oz., available at Neiman Marcus.

Creep by Hiroshi Awai Cotton Moleskin Railroad—"The temperature dropped so quickly, I'm already popping the preventative Dayquil. Because I'm too lazy to pick up my dry-cleaning (or I just want an excuse to shop), this faux-moleskin coat is making my must-have-list. I'm pretty much obsessed with everything Hiroshi Awai makes—it's a cool mix of classic Americana with Japanese eccentricities—and this coat is a lot of bang for your buck, with a ton of pockets, and a cool plaid flannel lining."  $275, available at NeedSupply.
