Coffee Break: Sidekick Shoulder Bag

The Row Sidekick Shoulder Bag | CorporetteThe Row kills it again with this gorgeous yellow suede shoulder bag. Love the goldtone hardware (so chic with yellow!) and all of the pockets. Gorrrrgeous. It’s $2,700 at Barney’s New York. The Row Sidekick Shoulder Bag

Coffee Break: ‘Bonnie’ Shawl Collar Skirted Coat

Trina Turk 'Bonnie' Shawl Collar Skirted Coat | CorporetteHmmmn. I had been obsessing over this blue coat when the sale first hit — it’s now almost sold out, but I am now obsessing over this dark green one instead. Call me silly, but I always prefer a button to a loose belt with a coat — something about the belt feels so bathrobe-like to me with the heavy wool. I love the saturated, vibrant green color, but it’s also available in a muted beige and black. (It was available in petites, but is now almost entirely sold out — call your local store if you love it; maybe they can find one among the recent returns for you.) It’s $364 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; after that it goes up to $545. Trina Turk ‘Bonnie’ Shawl Collar Skirted Coat

Here’s a lower-priced option and a plus-size alternative.


Coffee Break: Wide Stamped Leather and Suede Belt

White House | Black Market Wide Stamped Leather and Suede Belt | CorporetteOooh, pretty. This dark blue leather belt from White House | Black Market looks like just the thing for wearing with cardigans both long and short– I even like the idea of it with some of the high-waisted flared skirts coming out now. It’s $58 at WHBM, available in sizes XXS-XXL. White House | Black Market Wide Stamped Leather and Suede Belt


Coffee Break: ‘Tenice’ Pointy Toe Pump

Ivanka Trump 'Tenice' Pointy Toe Pump | CorporetteHello, gorgeous. I’m not sure how I missed this well-reviewed pump from my roundups of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I’m in love with it and kind of having a hard time picking a color — I like the gray the best, I think, but the black, cobalt, and beige are all fab as well. (And, for those of you with wide feet: The black also comes in wide widths.) I particularly like the back-zip closure so you don’t have to fuss with the straps, and the 3″ height is lovely. The shoes are currently marked down to $89, but once the sale ends on August 3 they’ll be $129. Ivanka Trump ‘Tenice’ Pointy Toe Pump

Here’s a slightly lower-priced option.


Coffee Break: ‘Mariella’ Satchel

Hobo Mariella | CorporetteI feel like the red bag is almost a workwear classic — wear it with black, navy, gray, white, beige, as well as colors like purple, blues (particularly light blue), oranges, and pinks. This Hobo satchel looks fabulous (it also comes in a black bag with brown accents, perfect for those of you who hate wearing black bags with brown clothes), and at 12″ x 9″ x 3″ it should even be big enough for a pad of paper or iPad. It’s $198 at Zappos. Hobo Mariella

Two lower-priced alternatives are here and here.


Coffee Break: Lizard V3 Card Case

Vianel Lizard V3 Card Case | CorporetteWe talk a lot about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this time of the year, but the truth is that there are a TON of sales going on, everywhere — albeit on last season’s merchandise. Sometimes that doesn’t matter, though, like with these gorgeous little card cases from Vianel, saturated with colors like green, red, and cobalt, as well as more neutral colors like black or navy. (Go for a color, though — you’ll always find it in your bag!) It was $290, but is now $119 — nice. Vianel Lizard V3 Card Case

Here’s a lower-priced option.

Psst: Should you be in the market for a 13″ laptop case, check out the steep discounts on these Smythson cases. Lovely.
