Rue's Most Coveted 6.23

  1. Ray-Ban Clubmaster Sunglasses. A staple since the 50s, these retro shades will lend an all-American touch to any outfit.
  2. Prada Vitello Satchel. Accessories are an easy way to add a pop of color. Look to happy-hued extras, like this yellow bag, for high impact.
  3. Pour La Victoire Selena Sandal. Navy is the new neutral, so let these perforated pumps take you from desk to dinner and beyond.
  4. Tory Burch Lucienne Dress. For a no-fail approach, grab this easy drawstring-waist dress. The subtle print will give you endless pairing options.

1. Sondra Roberts bag. Hello, dreamweaver. (See what I did there?) Our The Final Dash: Handbags & Little Leather Treats Boutique opens Tuesday, December 18, at 11AM ET.

2. Ray-Ban sunglasses. While I’ve always wavered on whether this shape will fit my face, you know what? I’m over it. There’s no way these wouldn’t look totally cool on anyone. Our Ray-Ban Boutique opens Monday, December 17, at 11AM ET.

3. alice + olivia dress. I learned very early on that the best way to party is in an unrestricting (read: eating-friendly) dress. So bring on the passed hors d’oeuvres. Our alice + olivia Boutique opens Tuesday, December 18, at 11AM ET.

4. luxury rebel boots. Chalk it up to the holidays, but glittery gold’s become my newest favorite neutral. Our luxury rebel Boutique opens Monday, December 17, at 11AM ET.
