From a gown fit for bouts of snowfall and sunshine to putting off mopping for just a bit longer, here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

1. TUMI rolling duffel. Sure, I’ll miss my old, worn-in duffel bag. What I won’t miss though? The muscle aches that came from lugging said bag around – making this slick little wheeled number a travel dream come true. Our Tumi Luggage & Outerwear Boutique opens Monday, December 3, at 11AM ET. 

2. Andrew Marc coat. Sheen + texture = one sophisticated parka. (How many puffy numbers can make that claim?) Our Andrew Marc Women’s Dresses & Outerwear Boutique opens Monday, December 3, at 11AM ET.

3. Carmen Marc Valvo gown. It’s not often that a super-glam silk gown can hold its own winter through summer. When you stumble across one that does, though, three words: Snap. It. Up. Our Carmen Marc Valvo Boutique opens Sunday, December 2, at 11AM ET.

4. Entryways doormat. Mopping? Admittedly, not one of my strongest suits. With this tough doormat at the threshold of my abode, though, a winter of salty boots will have nothing on the floors. Our A Warm Welcome: Mats for the Front Door Boutique opens Monday, December 3, at 11AM ET.

From boots fit for a good old fashioned New England snowdrift to an “heirloom” watch (for girls who don’t like waiting around), here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

From left to right:

Rotary men’s watch. The heirloom-watch look? With a classic leather band and old-school Roman numerals, this timeless ticker is how I plan to achieve it (and without that whole waiting-around-to-inherit part). Our Arm Candy: Stackable Bracelets & Watches Boutique opens Tuesday, November 27, at 11AM ET.

French Connection dress. Hello, holiday party (or New Years party… or any party) no-brainer. Our French Connection Women Boutique opens Tuesday, November 27, at 11AM ET.

Sorel boot. A New England snowdrift? In these take-no-prisoners lace-ups, bring it on. Our Sorel Men & Women Boutique opens Monday, November 26, at 11AM ET.

From copying a girl at work to immortalizing the family bulldog (by way of Warhol), here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

1. Mirror ball ornaments. Since I was at least age five, my mom’s go-to holiday décor has been these little mirror balls – so here’s to continuing tradition in my own teeny apartment. The best part? They totally pass as year-round details (and year-round reason to get dancing). Our The 12 Days of Merry: Time to Trim the Tree Boutique opens Sunday, November 11, at 11AM ET.

2. AllPopArt Custom Classic Pop Warhol Portrait. No – I am not a cat lady. This pop print is merely a prime example of AllPopArt’s unrivaled handiwork. There’s a very adorable English bulldog I know (ahem, Maddie Stanley) who deserves to be immortalized by way of Warhol. Our AllPopArt Boutique opens Monday, November 13, at 11AM ET.

3. Kelsi Dagger boot. A girl in the office has a pair of boots like these and looks so, so cool in them. I’ve been aggressively coveting them ever since their debut – and now they’re finally about to become mine. Our Long Live Boots: Wear Now, Love Forever Styles Boutique opens Tuesday, November 12, at 11AM ET.

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.
