With all those deals you snagged on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, today is your chance to give back to those in need with #GivingTuesday. With the help of some of Hollywood’s boldface names, including the late Paul Walker, we compiled a list of four organizations to help get you started on where you can send donations. Happy giving!
Oversized, gem-encrusted statement necklaces and arm-party baubles made us fall in love with jewelry line Dannijo, but now the brand is trying something a bit more dainty. Actress Rashida Jones (who is old friends with Danielle and Jodie Snyder, the sisters behind the New York-based jewelry label) has collaborated with the brand on a capsule collection called Fine by Dannijones. Last week the trio hosted a dinner at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of the capsule, attended by Anne Hathaway, Amy Poehler, Aubrey Plaza, Maya Rudolph, Angela Lindvall, and more — all who marveled over the charming adornments. The 18-piece line consists of delicate gold jewels meant to be worn everyday, and includes ears cuffs, stackable rings, bracelets, and chain necklaces featuring tiny charms like pineapples, arrows, palm trees, and unicorns. The Dannijo x Rashida Jones collection reflects the ease of Rashida’s California upbringing combined with the sophistication of Dannijo’s urban girl. The main idea behind the line? To create jewelry you never have to take off. Out today, Fine by Dannijones ranges from $98 to $598, and you can pick it up at dannijo.com.

Celebrities have wish lists, too! Moments after the Tory Burch spring/summer 2014 show, we overheard stylist to the stars Brad Goreski tell actress Emmy Rossum two major trends to take away from the collection that will be big for the season: Green and backpacks. “I love her aesthetic,” Rossum (in head-to-toe Tory Burch) told InStyle.com minutes before the show. “I love her ready-to-wear for my street style and day wear. I’m really looking forward to pieces that I will be buying.” Probably on her shopping list? We’re positive this backpack and one of the designer’s pretty green garden-print looks are at the very top— they’re on ours!

Designer: Tory Burch
Location: David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center
What was it like: The theater proved to be the perfect set for Tory Burch’s spring/summer 2014 collection, with its dramatic spiral staircase, 40-foot gold leaf ceilings and overall grandeur. And combined with the runway’s oceanic blue, the collection’s message of “easy glamour of the French Riviera” was loud and clear.
Why we love this collection: The inspiration was: “The French Riviera in the late 1960s, Romy Scheider’s character in La Piscine and mixed with garden elements.” The result? A collection that was like a breath of fresh air: Models walked down in structured silhouettes in a fresh color palette of green, white and coral, which complemented lattice detailing and garden prints seamlessly. Jewels, Queen Anne’s lace prints (in organza and dupioni fabrics) and beaded embroidery delivered a generous (and dreamy) dose of glamour.
What it was like: The venue had a relaxed, minimalist vibe.
Why we love this collection: Thakoon’s pretty spring collection was primarily black and white with feminine details, such as laser cutouts, lace appliqué and crystal-bead trim. At times, the accessories—ivory lace boots and pearl-covered shoulder bags—distracted. Slouchy trousers helped to offset the sweetness.

Rashida Jones epitomized casual cool when she showed up to the City Year event in Los Angeles this week in a crisp white blazer, pleated cropped pants to match, and a soft gray cotton tee. “This is Zara actually,” the Parks and Recreation star revealed to InStyle.com. “Zara is literally my favorite place. I love it.” Jones paired the brand’s linen blazer ($90) with the faux leather-topped trousers ($60), and then layered a basic ribbed T-shirt underneath ($20). Rashida’s style stayed true to her love for “architectural clothes and menswear” without being overly masculine. Head to zara.com to start shopping her look now.
