Face it, we're all suckers for fancy packaging. If faced with a beautifully packaged gift versus a equally thoughtful gift wrapped in the Sunday funny pages, I'd most likely look forward to unwrapping the former first. So whenever Valentine's Day rolls around, I always look to Juicy Couture for their totally covetable gifts. Whether it's their cute handbags or flirty dresses, there's always something for everyone. I say, who needs a beau when you've got Juicy? Their latest jewelry collection for Valentine's Day is romantic yet wearable throughout the year. The Juicy Couture Multi Keys Necklace comes with 3 silver vintage inspired skeleton keys and a padlock heart on a long chain necklace. Wear it with jeans and a t-shirt to add some pizazz, or with a cocktail dress on a night out. So definitely drop some hints to your special someone or go ahead and treat yourself!

If you can imagine model Erin Wasson going on a military tour in the Middle East and then stopping in Paris on her way back, you might get an idea of what IRO's Spring 2010 collection is like. Launched in 2004 by French brothers Laurent and Arik Britton, their initial concept was to establish a simple yet bold pieces that could easily transition from day to night. IRO is just one of those lines that can only be described as instantly, effortlessly chic. And I really don't mean that in that overused cliched way. Come on, just look at the clothes! Whether it's the distressed denim shorts or leather motorcycle jacket, all the essential basics are there and done totally right. The collection revolves around mostly separates so mixing and matching is easy. After amassing a cult following, IRO is now easier to find in the US and online. I haven't seen the spring collection in stores or online yet, but Shopbop has a great selection of their Fall 2009 line right now. Take a look at my slideshow for a look at their upcoming collection.
