Bloggers rule the world these days, and when it comes to gift giving? It’s safe to say they’re kind of the experts. So, this year, we asked a few of the blogger elite to curate their very own Rue La La wish lists – that you can actually shop. Here’s a peek at two of them.

How to Wear Emerald

Jewel-tone hues are making a comeback – in a big way. Pantone, the leading authority on color trends, has ruled emerald as the color of the year for 2013, and we can’t wait to start incorporating it into our closets. Here’s how:

Start small. Try mixing the color into your accessories first. A pair of teardrop earrings, a statement necklace, or an eye-catching bracelet (like the one above) boasting the shade will automatically boost your day-to-day wardrobe.

Contrast. Pair this tone with different textures (think wool and silk or chiffon and leather) and other complementary shades, like navy, for a look that makes a statement – but not too loudly.

Make it your basic. Opt for this rich color instead of reaching for your go-to white V-neck the next time you feel like dressing down.

Dress it up. Say goodbye to your favorite LBD and show up to your next cocktail party draped in this lush tone.

Switch up your shoes. Now would be the perfect time to swap your standard black pumps for a pair of emerald suede heels (sky-high encouraged).

Clutch it. Nothing inserts a pop of color into an outfit like a unique bag. A metallic leather clutch in this rich shade will add an unexpected touch to an otherwise toned-down blazer-and-heels ensemble.

No one’s ever said too much sparkle is a bad thing, and we’re proving that point with today’s #RueSprint. For just $19, this glittering Betsey Johnson clutch has enough room to store the essentials as you tear it up on the dance floor (or just look good at the grocery store).

But act fast – these clutches are only available through this link for 24 hours (or until they sell out).

From getting a headstart on sweets season to embracing the ultimate rubber clog, here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

1) Seiko watch. Sure, this is a men’s watch. But the way an oversized gold ticker nestles into the rest of the bracelet party is, simply put, irresistible. Our SEIKO Men Boutique opens Sunday, October 28 at 11AM ET.

2) French Sole New York flat. My beloved black skimmers? They’re sporting holes in their respective toes as we speak. The quest for a replacement has been a long and desperate road, but I’m more than confident that this ballet flat czar has it finally coming to an end. Our French Sole New York Boutique opens Tuesday, October 30, at 11AM ET.

3) Brooklyn Cheesecake treats. The season of indulgence is rapidly approaching (YES), so I may as well start conditioning for it. Our Brooklyn Cheesecake & Bittersweet Pastries Boutique opens Wednesday, October 31, at 11AM ET.

4) W.H. Petronela clutch. There’s no two ways about it – I absolutely have to wean myself off lugging an extra-large purse (in which I can stash my shoes and jacket) to parties. Hitting people with it gets awkward, and dancing just isn’t the same. With this killer clutch, though, my phone, ID, cash, and lip gloss are about to become all that I need. (Let the party resume.) Our W.H. Petronela Boutique opens Monday, October 29, at 11AM ET.

5) Crocs clogs. If a shoe is navy, slip-on, waterproof, ankle-skinnifying, and weighs pretty much nothing, guess what – I’ll always have a soft spot for it. Our Crocs Men Boutique opens Wednesday, October 31, at 11AM ET.
