Gs_h035_250Rarely do we find a product that works well on red or irritated skin, but one of our editors swears by this moisturizer. It cushions and calms sensitive skin with a slight cooling feeling and a non-oily consistency. Great packaging is an added bonus.

Rckittyhealtoilepinklg_1With all the rain we've been getting in New York lately, we were inspired to seek out a chic new pair of rain boots. Tamara Henriques, designer of possibly the cutest Wellies around, has retooled the classic rubber boot into one of the prettiest boots you'll wear rain or shine. The typically roomy front end has been updated into a sleek point and a kitten heel replaces the traditional chunky heel. The best part is the 3/4 height which allows you the versatility of wearing them under or over your pants. Fabulous!

StorkivoryOriginally published in 1904 and just re-released, this oversized hardbound keepsake makes the perfect gift for new moms. Reminiscent of simpler days, this heirloom book is the perfect way to record baby's firsts, from "baby's first photograph" to "baby's first playmates".

Throughout the book are classic poems by Lewis Carroll, Robert Lewis Stevenson, and Eugene Field and drawings by Albertine Randall Wheelan, one of the country's first female illustrators. Packaged with acid-free photo corners and a black gel pen in a custom-made box tied with a grosgrain ribbon, this is truly a memorable gift.

ThelipkitHere in New York, the long winter weather often leaves our lips chapped, flaky and peeling. If your lips need first aid beyond the basic balm, you'll love the LipKit, a portable package of five products that will save your kisser in no time.

Created by a cosmetic dentist, the kit includes Lip Renew exfoliator to smooth,  Lip Dew to moisturize, Lip Fill to prevent feathering and condition, Lip Plump for sensual lips and finally Lip Keep to apply over lipstick for all-day wear. All five steps come packed in a tiny mesh bag.

1575_croppedDid you know that 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra?

One of our "style chefs" (and we won't say who) learned this fact the hard way during a recent bra fitting with the Chantelle experts at Saks. After years of wearing a 36C, our editor (who again, will remain anonymous) was dismayed to learn she's actually a 34D. Of course, armed with this new information, the bra fitter swiftly selected the perfect bra which, amazingly, did not ride up in the back or slip off the shoulders.

If you haven't been properly fit for a bra recently, click here for tips on how to determine your size at home. Or, you can always visit Liliana in the Chantelle department at Saks in NYC - and tell her an anonymous StyleBakery editor sent you.

Chantelle Lingerie is a proud supporter of Dress for Success, which provides interview suits, confidence boosts and career development services to economically challenged women making the transition into the workforce. Purchase one of four top-selling Chantelle bras through May 31, 2005 and they will donate $2 to the program.
