Monday, May, 19, 2008 We like to think of accessories as the adjectives in the story of an outfit. A pair of jeans and a white t-shirt might not communicate much, but just add an intricate pair of sandals or an armful of bangles and suddenly you can see an entire point of view. It┬'s no wonder why we┬'re obsessed with accessories of all shapes and sizes; their transformative power is truly amazing. On that note, we┬'re delighted to give you an additional dose of bags, baubles, and beautiful sandals in today┬'s Accessory Report.

1. Heech ($89)
Shoe lovers, it┬'s time to rejoice, because your search for a must-have pair of gladiator sandals is finally over. Follow Nicky Hilton┬'s lead (she has them in black) and get a pair of Heech wedges to wear with your floral maxi dresses.

2. Patent Leather Large Tote ($200)
This gorgeous roomy tote is sophisticated and practical┬--you could easily stash your laptop inside┬--two qualities we enjoy in a bag. The cherry red patent is beautifully bright, but the tote also comes in black and white if you┬'d prefer a basic color.

3. Jewellite ($69.99-$89)
Summer calls for festive shoes and these strappy, high-heeled sandals satisfy that requirement. Balance the shoe┬'s bold shades with a pair of navy cropped pants and a crisp white tank for seasonally spirited look.

4. Raven ($69)
These flat thong sandals are super versatile thanks to the simple silhouette. Wear them with a pair of cutoffs for a casual day outfit or pair them with a skirt and some bold accessories for a dressier look. Shown above in bark, they┬'re also available in black, emerald, and fuchsia.

5. Hammer ($79)
If you┬'ve been wondering what to wear with your safari-inspired styles and neutral outfits, these sandals might be your solution. These croc-embossed leather t-strap heels would look sharp with anything khaki.

6. Block Party Bracelet ($95)
This bright multi-colored bangle is almost as much fun as the similarly named band. The wide cuff makes a statement and reminds us of some similarly shaped bracelets on the Chanel and Cavalli spring runways.

7. Over and Out Clutch ($59)
It┬'s time to diversify your bag wardrobe by picking up this mushroom-colored clutch with gathered detailing. Wear the neutral bag with a simple black sheath dress for a Calvin Klein-inspired, chic minimalist vibe.

8. Rossinis ($79)
Whether you go for the metallic version in gold reptile or prefer the brown multicolor option, these embellished sandals will add a touch of boho style to any outfit.

9. Honeypie ($79)
Everyone needs a great pair of wedges to wear with their wide leg pants. While wedges can look clunky, the skinny straps on this pair give the shoe a feminine touch. Plus, the pale gold leather is softly neutral, so they┬'ll work with anything.
