Valentino Rivet Color-Block Leather Shoulder Bag

Valentino Rivet Color-Block Leather Shoulder Bag: Revved to Rivet

From rock studs to rivets: Valentino is currently easing up on their trademark (to the point of ubiquity) hardware and going for a lighter look with a smattering of delicate rivets. The level of metal might be turned down a few notches, but this bag manages to still pack a punch when it comes to covetability.

BOYY Samuel Leather Clutch Bag

BOYY Samuel Leather Clutch Bag: Winter of Sam

A clutch for evening, a pouch for day, and an organizer for your tote when you need a larger bag: these types of bags are the ones that always land at the top of my list. And once I start using them, I can’t stop. BOYY’s Samuel bag is on the larger size, bigger than wallet scale, which makes it an ideal daytime clutch.

Siaomimi Red Riding Hood Cape

Siaomimi Red Riding Hood Cape: Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

Cold weather is coming, and while you and I love shopping for cute outerwear, tots are not at all excited about bundling up. With this Siaomimi Red Riding Hood cape, there’ll be no more fighting over getting that coat on, though! She’ll be more than happy to wear this to grandma’s or anywhere else.

Myriam Schaefer Dino Leather Bucket Bag: Buckle Up Your Bucket

The genius of Myriam Schaefer lies in the fact that both her appeal and aesthetic are underestimated, but it’s possible this bucket bag will change that.

Feather Shoes

Feather Shoes: Tickled by Feathers

When you think of feathers and shoes, you think of boudoir house slippers like these frilly Sophia Webster mules. There are so many more options than those, though. Feathers had a big showing at couture (most memorably at Chanel) so you can expect the trend to trickle down.

Ralph Lauren Collection

Ralph Lauren Collection Equestrian Crossbody Bag: Ride With Me

Don’t underestimate the bare looks of this saddle bag. Its streamlined simplicity is most deceiving. I have a Ralph Lauren Collection saddle bag and while I love it, this updated, improved version includes all the details mine lacks, keeping it from reaching perfection.

McQ Alexander McQueen YT Textured Leather Tote

McQ Alexander McQueen YT Textured Leather Tote: Turning the Hardware on Its Head

While it’s not at all unusual for brands to use hardware to identify their work, McQ does this with more than the average buckle or stud. The razor blade is the company signature, and here it’s been inverted so that the negative space in the center (see below to get a better idea) becomes the YT’s simple key-shaped accent.

Fall Essentials

Fall Essentials: The Five Shoes You Must Have

Each season, I try to prioritize essentials for the upcoming months (so as not to go wild and get five of each!). For fall, it’s all about flash and function – a burst of metallic via party-ready sandals, as well as flats and galoshes for those cold, rainy days when a black and white calf hair pump wouldn’t be able to hack it.
