Don't let the vintage look fool you. The Little Dictionary of Fashion ($20) offers advice on style that is truly timeless, given by one of the foremost fashion experts in the world. Christian Dior shares his insight into the fundamentals of looking good, from walking the right walk to proper grooming and the art of keeping things simple. It might not cover such hot fashion topics as how to wear boyfriend jeans with ankle boots, but we're betting you'll find it indispensable.

Don't be fooled by the name - this product ($45) is so much more than a cleanser. In fact, it's a makeup remover, mask, scrub, and toner in one little bottle. Use the included cleansing cloth to easily remove even your darkest waterproof mascara while enriching your skin with vitamins and botanical extracts from around the world. The only thing it doesn't include is moisturizer, so make sure to finish up with your favorite hydrating cream!

We mostly base our lip gloss choices on color, but it's always a bonus when we find a product that contains extra ingredients to make our lips feel good as well as look good. Josie Maran's Coconut Watercolor Lip Stain + Shine ($22) is one of those products. Infusions of coconut water and argan leave our lips soft and smooth for hours, and it comes in six super pretty shades. (We also love that the color lasts for up to 14 hours!)

What's that noise? It's probably the ozone layer crying because you forgot to shut your fridge door again. Install one of these Fridgeezoo Fridge Pets ($24) between the butter and the orange juice, and they'll be sure to let you know if you make the same mistake again. They'll also give you a cheerful Japanese greeting whenever you open the door in search of a snack. How fun is that?

We love the look of statement earrings, but whenever we put them on they wind up in our purse two hours later because our earlobes are aching. That's why we love these minimalist earrings ($35). The simple, unique design is what makes the statement - and they're so lightweight that you can wear them all day long pain-free. Want the dangling end longer or shorter? Make a note to the seller - they're completely customizable!

Why be limited to rounds and ovals when your casseroles can be so much more geometrically adventurous? Le Creuset offers their signature enameled cast iron bakeware in a range of shapes, including an adorable pumpkin. But this Flower Cocotte ($200) looks just as fun, and can be used even during months that don't end in "-ber".

Oh, uh... you're putting out bowls of candy corn at your Halloween party? That's... nice. Are you sure you don't want to upgrade to something more edible? Because this Spooky Bonbon Collection ($13-46) from EHChocolatier is more expensive than the cheap stuff, but each bonbon tastes like a dream, boasting flavors like pumpkin, pinenut cinnamon, hazelnut, maple, and more. And those darling spooks on the tops are worthy of every party guest's admiration!

If there are two things we love, they are infectious pop tunes and knowing about something before it gets huge. That's why we're getting behind "Tongue Tied" ($1), the new single from Andy Allo - it has an earworm quality we haven't heard since "Call Me Maybe" took over our brains a few years ago. And she has way more cred than having Justin Bieber tweet about her; Allo has toured with Prince and even appears on his latest album. So go, have a listen - and you can totally blame us later when you can't get it out of your head.

Wearing socks to bed? Not in a million years. But when it comes to lounging around the house, cozy socks are an absolute necessity. Not only will these tall striped socks ($14) keep your feet and lower legs nice and toasty, they're so much cuter than the 20 pairs of ratty gym socks currently cluttering up your drawers.

Smartphones are ever so convenient - until you actually have to write something on one of them. Then they become pocket-sized torture devices, forcing you to awkwardly peck your way through every painstaking sentence. At last, there's a way to escape from this fat fingered hell. The myType Bluetooth Keyboard ($70) syncs easily with your phone, giving you a spacious and comfortable way to input text. When you're not using it, it folds up into a petite, purse friendly package.

Forget something? If the idea has you waking up in a cold sweat, maybe it's time to invest in this Smythson Wedding Planner Panama Notebook ($80). It comes divided into handy sections that prompt you to get organized about everything from your wardrobe to guest gifts and flower arrangements. And since it's perfectly pocket-sized, you can easily keep it handy throughout the logistical nightmare to come.

Think you'll meet that savings goal when pigs fly? Well, this Golden Flying Piggy Bank ($28) might get you a little closer. Put this sweet little guy someplace prominent to remind you to stash that spare change, and you'll be on the road to financially responsible indulgence before you know it.

Getting stuck in the rain is bad enough, but getting stuck in the rain on an insanely windy day is far worse. But now you can bid farewell forever to that sensation of being unable to move because your the wind has gone and turned your umbrella inside out. The Senz Automatic Dazz Buzz Umbrella ($79) may look funny, but its shape is designed to withstand winds up to 50 mph! Now you can walk confidently through the storm - with gusto!

Glam up your mani by adding a golden glitter top coat ($28) to it. We bet a matte black for Halloween would look totally cosmic with a bit of shimmer, or sparkle up an awesome orange polish to match the fall foliage.

A true Dinner Hostess Top ($45) would be impervious to wine and tomato stains. Hell, the ideal one would make dinner for you, all the while suggesting witty anecdotes to use to delight your guests. But we're pretty sure those are called party planners, and they cost a bit more than this lace-accented semi-sheer blouse.
