Coffee Break: Gaige Pumps

Sofft - Gaige (Black Cracked Suede)We are loving these shoes from Sofft as a vintagey alternative to a regular pump. The super high vamp makes them very walkable, but we think the way the vamp dips down will be more attractive than, say, a Mary Jane or t-strap shoe. For some reason, we’re seeing them with a swingy A-line skirt. They’re $109 at Zappos in “cracked suede” (pictured) and regular black leather (Sofft – Gaige (Black Cracked Suede) – Footwear); while Macy’s has the same shoe in a red and gray suede (Sofft Shoes, Gaige Pumps Women’s Shoes).

Coffee Break: Damisi Patchwork Leola Satchel

Marc by Marc Jacobs Damisi Patchwork Leola SatchelI’m always a fan of Marc by Marc Jacobs bags, and this lovely satchel is no different — LOVE the print on the inside, the numerous pockets, and the size.  I’m normally not a brown-purse kind of gal, but the caramel color strikes me as just right.  It’s $369 (was $528) at ShopBop.  Marc by Marc Jacobs Damisi Patchwork Leola Satchel

Coffee Break: Stevie Flap Shoulder Bag

Antonio Melani "Stevie" Flap Shoulder BagWe’re digging this “whiskey” colored bag from Antonio Melani — love the geometric look to the seaming, the flip-lock closure, and the comfortable strap-drop length.  It’s $179, only at Antonio Melani “Stevie” Flap Shoulder Bag

Coffee Break: Dr. Scholl’s Graduate

Dr. Scholl's - Graduate (Bronze Pulled PU) - FootwearWe’re liking these comfortable flats from Dr. Scholl — heralded by a number of readers in this post as being super comfortable.  We like the slight point to the toe, the circular buckle, and the number of different colors available — our favorites are these bronze ones (on sale for $56.70), but Zappos also has them in gunmetal, grey plaid, gold foil, and beige (Dr. Scholl’s – Graduate (Bronze Pulled PU) – Footwear).  Endless also has them in a number of pastels, a red, and a few animal prints; in limited sizes they also have two black pairs (prices range from $38.47 to $69.95), and Shoebuy has much more sizes of the plain black ones available for $68.


Coffee Break: Indo Tracolla Large Crossbody

Furla Handbags - Indo Tracolla Large Crossbody (Onyx) - Bags and LuggageZappos seems to have a ton of designer totes on 25-30% discount today, including this lovely crossbody tote, which strikes us as a very rich looking, and functional bag for toting work papers. It’s 17.25″ wide, 5″ deep, and 12.5″ high — love the dotted lining and the chain detail on the detachable shoulder strap. It’s $395 (was $529) at Zappos Couture.

Coffee Break: Vintage Waist Belt

After today’s earlier post re: accessories, we went off in search of great belts — and found a ton of them at ShopBop. Today we’re particularly liking this vintage waist belt from Linea Pelle — great color and great loop/button details. Love the idea of it belted over a long black cardigan, light gray pants, and perhaps a few strands of white or gray pearls at the neckline, and perhaps a silver cuff, worn on top of the sweater sleeve. It’s $84 at ShopBop. Linea Pelle Vintage Waist Belt
