5 Best Bets from the Rag & Bone Clearance Sale

Thursday, October 30, 2014 • Permalink • 

Rag & Bone is one of those labels I’d wear a lot more of, if I could just find it on sale more often. It doesn’t pop up at the designer outlets nearly as much as I’d like. But, they do have pretty good sales at their online store, and the fall clearance sale is in full swing right now.

I waded through the Rag & Bone sale selection to pull out my favorite finds. You really can’t go wrong with any of these five options…

The most unique of my finds is this zip top. It strikes me as a cross between a bomber jacket and a proper blouse, in a gorgeously warm almond color. It’s perfect for a creative office, or a night out.

Red Wine Colored Fashion Finds for Fall

--By Kim Moshtaghi

As the season changes, shades of red wine will begin to dominate both the outdoor and fashion landscapes. Shades of red wine are mysterious and glamorous, and will beautifully mix with the colder season’s gloomy backdrops. Although we may see shades of grey all around us, I promise you will stand out from the gloomy weather when you wear red. Give yourself some hope and direction during the gloomy season.

This first feature is striking. This burgundy skinny pant will keep you warm and sexy. Pair with patent skinny heels, or accentuate its edgy potential and pair with boots.

5 Must-Have Shoes from the & Other Stories US Launch

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 • Permalink • 

In case you missed the big online shopping news last week, much-loved Swedish retailer & Other Stories finally launched their US online store. Fashionistas coast-to-coast rejoiced. This store is a treasure trove of mid-priced style finds that look super high-fashion.

Honestly, I’d have zero problem replacing my entire wardrobe with finds from & Other Stories. Their selection is that fabulous. But, in the interest of creating useful post, I narrowed my focus to shoes. Gorgeous, wonderful shoes. I carefully reviewed the 150+ pair currently available on the new US-facing site. Here are my top picks…

The reptile texture on these leather flats is heavy on the white detail, which is fairly unique among faux reptile finishes. I like that. If you are going to emboss leather, go for a reptile that doesn’t exist in real life.

Loving This Week: Designer Bag Deals + Clinique Free GWP

Monday, October 20, 2014 • Permalink • 

Marc by Marc Jacobs Handbag - Rebecca Taylor Blouse - Prada Handbag - Clinique Free GWP - Hayden Cashmere Sweater

The Saks Fifth Avenue online outlet just got a fresh shipment of handbags from the Saks stores, resulting in some pretty great deals on high end bags. I found two classic shapes that turned my head.

In other department store news, it’s Clinique free gift with purchase time at Macy’s. I’m not a huge Clinique fan, but their free gifts are some of the best in the business thanks to generous use of full-size products. I can usually find something I need that will net me the gift, which means brand new free eyeshadow, blush, mascara, and more.

Here’s what’s floating around in my online shopping cart this week…

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs Globetrotter Calamity Satchel, $265.99 (was $498.00)
This pebbled leather satchel is one of my favorite sale finds this week. It’s a roomy black leather bag, in a classic shape, with nicely restrained use of gold hardware. Everything about this handbag screams “your new favorite workday bag.”

New Label Love: PB 0110 Does Luxe Ultra-Minimalist Handbags

Tuesday, October 14, 2014 • Permalink • 

While I often discover new clothing labels by floating around my favorite indie-friendly sites, it’s rare that I discover new handbag labels. But, this week I learned about PB 0110, a line of luxurious handbags and accessories crafted in an ultra-minimalist style. No obvious branding or superfluous detail here – just gorgeous design.

PB 0110, first presented in 2013, is the work of designer Philipp Bree. The Bree name may sound familiar to world travelers. Philipp Bree’s family brand – Bree – is a prominent maker of handbags, luggage, and leather goods in Germany. Philipp left day-to-day involvement in the company in 2012 to focus on his own label.

In creating the PB 0110 brand, Philipp Bree chose to focus on natural, vegetable-tanned leather, pure linen, and brass. The idea is that these particular materials become even more beautiful over time. The bags and accessories are then crafted by European manufacturers selected for their skill in processing high quality materials. The result? Truly timeless bags that just keep getting better.

Check out some of my favorite PB 0110 finds…

This structured tote is the absolute ideal bag to complement a minimalist wardrobe. I love that it’s a mere 3.25” deep – the proportion sets off the 15.5” height perfectly – and that the adjustable strap becomes part of the design detail. Stunning.
