These boots were made for giving.
What: The wildest kicks ($175) this side of the Sahara. Feel good about African-made slip-ons, oxfords, and desert boots made from hair-on-hide leather (no pair is the same) in eight colors.
Why: Proceeds support Empower African Children, which gives scholarship money to orphaned and at-risk kids.

Foe and Dear Jewelry
What: O, Canada. We pledge allegiance to our northern neighbors in honor of modern necklaces, earrings, and bracelets accented with spikes, crystals, charms, and more.
Why: Bring the Momma’s Pearl ring (gold plated and wire wrapped, $30) and the Light necklace (miniature lightbulb on a vintage chain, $50) to our fair shores.

Revlon ColorStay Polish
What: We would never lie about lasting power, so believe us when we say the lacquer ($8) stays put for eleven days (use the base and top coat) and withstands even cleaning frenzies without chipping.
Why: It’s shiny like a gel manicure, comes in 30 colors (we like Delicious and Coastal Surf), and comes off easily.

Hayden-Harnett Bespoke Scarves
What: Upload your most Hipstamatic photo, select your size and fabric (chiffon or sandwashed silk), and — voila! — wearable art.
Why: Finally get your man friend that mustache portrait scarf he pines for.

She Hit Pause Collage
What: One of our favorite photographers lets you mold four of his dreamy, nostalgic Polaroids from categories (Surfing, Coney Island, Flowers) into your own creation.
Why: We browsed the Girls & Dreams section to group together In Between Days, Legs + Fire, Stained Glass, and Blowing Bubbles for a sexy collage that rang true to its name.
