Country Club Covet

Looking fabulous while lounging poolside is a summer necessity, just like SPF, an Hermes towel and a handsome attentive cabana boy. Roberto Cavalli's "Giraffe Clasp Maillot" with ruching detail and a deadly sexy plunging V will have those in your midst diving for the deep end to cool off.

Beauty Covet

It's those rare but fortuitous occasions when you meet a designer who brings forth a product that you just fall in love with. This happened to me yesterday at Bergdorf Goodman's: Mecca for all who love fashion, design and decadence, Bergdorf's is a bastion, a retreat into luxury. I'd like to introduce you to a new luxury at Bergdorf's, Edward Bess - eye and lip color savant who's new collection left me a little weak in the knees. He has an intution when it comes to color and can pick perfection for you. He showed me several choices, but we decided upon his Deep Shine Lip Gloss in "Dark Blossom" after he confided for me to always wear a dark lip. I completely agree and am heading back to BG tomorrow for more.

A mere 22 years old but with the sophistication, style and determination of someone who's been in the business for years, Edward Bess is someone to watch.

A decadent and deserving treat would be his "Lip Wardrobe Collection", the sleek black lacquer case which chicly houses 5 of his lip glosses and 10 of his lipsticks.

Available at or at Bergdorf Goodman in New York.

Retro Glamour Covet

There's nothing quite like recalling the glamour of past decades when selecting a perfect new piece to add to your wardrobe. J. Crew has nearly perfected the art of recalling that past with their jeweled tunics, skinny capri's, cashmere twin-sets, and bold patterned pairings. Not to disapppoint, their Double-Strand Jeweled-Flower Bracelet brings to mind chic poolside cocktail parties of the 60's.

While I'm partial to the bracelet in 'fresh guava', I can also see wearing it in the 'bleached aqua' - either would be a sublime choice.

Summer Sandal Covet

Sometimes a girl can't always spend several hundred on a trendy little slide - that's where this chic and super affordable Steve Madden "Blosommm" sandal comes in. Effortlessly moving from day to evening, this t-strap thong in black satin is a summer wardrobe must-have.

Already on sale makes this purchase even sweeter.
