Skulls Raise the Bar - NBC New York

Skulls Raise the Bar a mixology must-have. Plus, the Chloe & Reese sample sale and more



    Skulls Raise the Bar
    Two's Company
    An elegantly macabre bottle topper.

    HEAD TRIP: It’s generally agreed that skulls, as a design motif, are over. But we think that only applies to the gratuitous use thereof, like when they show up in rhinestones on some piece of Juicy-wear. When they’re a subtle home accessory – like this Skellington bottle stopper here – they one again become deliciously eeevil. Cork your Hallows Eve Cognac with this glass number, $12.50, Two’s Company via Global Table, 109 Sullivan Street; 212-431-5839.

    DRESS DOWN: It’s sample sale city over at Chloe & Reese, and that means a ton of frocks -- slinky or bubbly, casual or party -- that used to hover around $400-500 now start at less than a C note. Huzzah! Through September 19, 313 West 37th Street near Eighth Avenue, 6th floor; 888-317-1695.

    WHITE HOT: Loving this drapey, plush Timo white collar made of perforated white leather – it gathers and scrunches in just the right places. The simple black tops in your closet are crying out for this. $396 from Pixie Market.
