We thought the nude pump couldn’t get any better. We were so, so wrong. Ann Taylor showed us when they busted out this to die for Calla Sequin Peeptoe Platform . We might have to cut off all of our toes to fit into the size 7s that are left, but we’re pretty sure it’s worth it! Get this at Anntaylor.com for only $140 on sale.

When we think of Kate Spade, we think refined and preppy. We don’t think of the Beastie Boys. Despite the fact that the two icons don’t seem to mesh, this No Sleep Till Brooklyn Bangle  is pretty fantastic. Literally, it’s pretty and fantastic. It’s the one piece of jewelry we wish we’d had when we were 15 and were trying to impress the first guy we had a crush on while still staying true to the preppy girl we are at heart. Available at katespade.com ($88)

A few great soapstone workers in Perkinsville, Vermont have created Whiskey Stones. These little ice-imitators are specially designed to put a slight chill in your Whiskey.

All you do is put them in the freezer for a few hours and then pop a couple into a glass of single malt. Once you’re done, rinse, dry and do it all over again! And no need to worry about a watery drink, because these stones don’t dilute (that’s the best part). Dylan Thomas would’ve loved these things. We hope you will too, available at Think Geek at $14.99 only.

The DIY Juice to Alcohol Kit is a simple little kit. First, you just have to get yourself a 64oz bottle of juice. Then pour in a packet of the DIY Juice to Alcohol Kit‘s yeast and pop the airlock top on.

Inside the juice, the yeast will begin its sweet, sweet science – it will convert the fructose of the juice into alcohol and carbonation. Within 48 hours (you can start tasting after 24), you’ll have your very own alcoholic beverage. Available at Think geek at $9.99

The otaku in us emerges from a haze of video games and ramen to wonder why this Tadashi dress wasn’t named shibari, but maybe that’s because of the NSFW-ness of it all

This fitted sheath from Tadashi Shoji features crisscrossing contrast stripes for a strikingly modern design. Available at www1.bloomingdales.com for $410

These designs aren’t charting any new fashion territory, but like Diane von Furstenberg’s Lytton Minaudieres, they’re filling an important void in the market – non-formal evening bags at a contemporary price point.

You don’t have to wait for a gala to carry these designs, just your next night out, but they’re a slightly more streamlined option than your average clutch. That also means you have to be careful what you pack, but at seven inches wide, these box clutches are bigger in person than you’d expect.

These are available at ShopBop

With a corset-style top and lace overlay, Camilla and Marc’s black ponte mini dress is the perfect party choice.

Plain and simple. Sexiest little black dress. Ever. Honestly, how hot can one dress possibly get? Available on  www.net-a-porter.com at 790$
