A friend of mine just got this bag, and I have to say, I’m pretty impressed for a $30 bag. The brand has a ton of nice looking, well-reviewed, stylish bags, and many of them have intelligent little details, like colored linings, interior pockets, and more. For today’s Coffee Break, I liked the look of this 15″x5″x11″ tote, with handles as well as a cross strap — the bright red color looks lovely, and if you’re on the fence about such a bright color, the price will certainly help you take the plunge: it’s $27 at Amazon (eligible for Prime — and also available in brown).

Hmmn. Azure? Or electric blue? Azure? Or electric blue? Phillip Lim’s very popular 3.1 satchel hasn’t been my favorite in the past — I just wish it were big enough for, say, a legal-sized notepad — but these two (two!) new blue colors are both calling my name. So: azure? Electric blue? Azure? Electric blue? Hmmmmmmn. The bags are $895-$1095. 3.1 Phillip Lim ‘Medium Pashli’ Leather Satchel
Here’s a lower-priced option.
It’s finally starting to feel like spring, including warmer temperatures — but not so warm you can’t go out without a coat. I’ve always like a bright rain coat for the days when I’m not wearing a blazer; this happy yellow one from Steve Madden looks great. (Personally I hate the double-breasted trench, but if you prefer that look, check here or here.) The pictured one is $98 at Nordstrom. Steve Madden Single Breasted Hooded Trench Coat
Here’s a plus-size version.
I would definitely end up tripping if I tried to wear these shoes, but if you can wear shoes like these, these flats from Dr. Scholl’s look great — fashion forward, flattering, versatile, and, according to reviewers, comfortable. They’re well priced, too: $88, full price (also available in a gold). Dr. Scholl’s Tivoli – Original Collection
Here is a similar pony hair flat with a lower price tag.
We’ve featured Fossil’s classic tote bag, the Sydney Shopper, several times here on the blog — but this bright, happy pink just makes my day. It’s one of 16 colors the bag comes in, all available at Zappos for $168. Sydney Shopper
6pm.com has several older colors of the bag on sale for as low as $99.
Update: Zappos seems to have low stock on the fuchsia; Amazon also has the color.
