Coffee Break: Crystal Two-Tier Necklace

Ann Taylor  Crystal Two-Tier NecklaceWe’ve been loving Ann Taylor’s accessories as of late, including this two-tier crystal necklace.  We’d wear it in place of pearls with a simple boatneck — particularly against a richly-hued blouse like this one from Gap.  It’s $58 at Ann Taylor.   Crystal Two-Tier Necklace

Coffee Break: Banana Republic’s Leather Knotted Belt

banana Republic leather knotted beltBanana Republic is having yet another online-only sale today (20% off orders of $75+ with code BRSAVE20), and we’re digging this wide belt that has some leather, and some cloth. We like that the reviewers all rave about the amount of stretch in the belt and the way it lays properly; we think it would be a great way to add some shape and spunk to a sweater dress or cardigan. It’s $38 at Banana Republic in sizes XS/S and M/L.  Leather knotted belt

Coffee Break

Weitzman Swoon Platform PumpOur post on comfortable heels last week generated a number of votes for Stuart Weitzman and Ferragamo, so when we saw these lovely heels on sale (in numerous spots) we had to pass on the news. It’s a 3.5″ heel, but it looks to have a subtle platform, which should be easier for standing. Zappos has them in black patent and a fun electric blue patent (we’d wear with gray or navy bottoms, but otherwise keep for weekend fun) for $196, and Endless has them in a slew of colors (including the “cashew” suede, pictured) for anywhere from $163-$202.  (The shoes were originally $298.)   The cashew suede — a great indoor shoe — is on sale for $168, still available in sizes 6-10.

Coffee Break: Satya Hoop Earrings

Satya Hoop earrings.indexedWe love these small hoop earrings — we like that they’re small (.75″), delicate,  and pure silver.  They also strike us as something you can answer the phone in, which is always a plus with earrings.  The small ones are $38 at Momastore.org.   Satya Hoop Earrings

Coffee Break: Roselena Tote

Biasia Roselena ToteIf you’ve been on the hunt for a basic black leather tote bag, we think this bag nails it — big enough for most size docs, helpful zippers and pockets — and on sale.  Nice.  Was $398, now down to $290.  Francesco Biasia Roselena Tote (Note that Zappos has it in blue, also, albeit at a higher price.)

Coffee Break: Feather Print Cashmere Scarf

La Fiorentina Feather Print Cashmere ScarfOur “Coffee Break” feature suggests a work-appropriate accessory in a range of prices.

For today’s accessory, we like this feather printed cashmere scarf.  We actually lurve it in the green, but it comes in brown, grey, and gold as well.  At 28″ by 72″ it’s the perfect size for a wrap to keep you warm in winter months — particularly if you have a crazy radiator that shuts on and off at will — or to use as a travel blanket/pillow, as readers suggested.  It’s $78 at Nordstrom.  La Fiorentina Feather Print Cashmere Scarf
