Normally, I wouldn't go out of my way to direct your attention to a store in Houston, even if it's in the lovely shopping mecca that is Rice Village. But Lily Rain, a new boutique there, may just have cornered the market on stylish yet eclectic accessories, clothing and home goods. The 3,000-square-foot store offers a well-edited collection of jeans, NEST candles and lotions...you know the drill. But I recently couldn't take my eyes off the Midnight Knuckle Snake Ring clutch ($64), made of soft snake-embossed leather with a silver frame, a silver drop-in chain and a crystal snake shaped charm on top of four silver rings. Add a few crystals on top, and it's event-ready. What more can you say about one accessory that does double duty?
