See our picks for the items our editors want to blow our tax refunds on this year—from a fancy blowdryer to a statement bag, and even an exotic vacay thrown in the mix .

Minimal Bag

Navy Tsatsas bag

"I'd feed my purse collection with my refund. I love this small, luxury line from Germany exclusively carried at Roztayger, which sells a tightly curated selection of bags from around the world. The limited-edition design from Tsatsas is part insouciance, part high fashion elegance. I love that it's a deep blue and that it always looks slightly askew/open, even though it's actually snapped shut. The conscious consumerist in me also appreciates that the hide is sourced from animals reared for meat production and that the manufacturing meets the highest ecological standards. " —Isabel Gonzalez-Whitaker, Fashion Features Editor

The Fluke Bag: Tsatsas, $1,050;

Miracle Hair Tool

Harry Josh Mint blow dryer

"This Harry Josh hair dryer sounds like magic. Energy efficient and powerful, this pint-size dryer is said to cut drying time in half. How can I not trust the man in charge of Gisele's hair?" —Violet Gaynor, Senior Fashion Editor

Statement Coat

No. 21 floral jacket

"My aesthetic is pretty minimal, but when it comes to tax refund money, I like to splurge on something completely against type like this No. 21 coat. The beautiful floral details are feminine so you'd expect it to be worn with a dress. I'd dress it down with frayed jeans and my trusty white Adidas Stan Smiths as an every day piece." —Diana Tsui, Senior Editor

Fantasia Floral-Print Cocoon Coat: No. 21, $2,374;

Colorful painting

"I'm obsessed with these gorgeous paintings by Jenny Prinn, an artist and fellow mother of small children living in Maine. The colors are so bright you can't help but feel happy when you look at them. I recently bought one ( 1970) and I'm already craving another." —Selene Milano-Angel, Senior Beauty Editor

Single Luxe Earring

Pearl Earring

"I would buy these Delfina Delettrez earrings. I've been eyeing them since last fall when I saw the photos come back from the Paris press days. This one is my favorite; of course diamonds! Pearls are a a classic, but done in this way it makes them super cool and unlike anything else." —Ali Pew, Fashion Editor

Saint Laurent black leather bag

"I've been eyeing Saint Laurent's tote bags since Fashion Director Melissa Rubini raved about them last fall. These bags are beautiful, classic and practical. If it's something you'll be carrying every day, for years, it is worth the investment—right?" —Angela Matusik, Executive Editor
