All the bells and whistles of modern watches are great, but sometimes you just want a nice, crisp classic watch.

It doesn't get much more classic than Vacheron Constantin's "Patrimony" watch with a solid platinum dial and case, and a blue alligator strap.

Part of the appeal of this watch is the brand. Vacheron has been making luxury Swiss watches for more than 250 years and has earned an admirable reputation among timepiece collectors.

Suggested retail price is $26,000.

I saw someone wearing these "Myrna Bee" hoops this week, and I instantly fell in love.

Hoops never go out of style, but the forward-facing, post hoops appear particularly fashion-forward. The adorable bees that hide the posts make the earrings a perfect summer staple and add a touch of whimsy and artistry to the basic orb.

Suggested retail price is $1,295.
