Some Favorites from the Coffee Break

As with my round-up of my favorite items from our TPS reports, I thought I’d round up my favorite accessory recommendations from 2010.  Readers, which are your favorites?  Any from the commenting threads?

Coffee Break

Samsonite - xSpace 21.5" Exp. Spinner One of the smartest things I did unwittingly a few years ago was to buy a blue carry-on — and now I always know exactly which one is mine when I have to gate check it or really check it. eBags has a number of great bags on sale right now, and I like the look of this dark purple carry-on from Samsonite — was $360, now $161 (with free shipping and guaranteed delivery by December 25!).

Readers, which is your favorite carry-on?  Any fun travel tales to tell?

Coffee Break: Beirn Tote

Jenna woven snakeskin toteMaybe my memory is off, but I remember passing up the opportunity to get a Beirn bag for just over $100 — and I regret it every time I see some fashionable New Yorker carrying the bag. They’re truly lovely. The Outnet has a number at 65% off, though — this one is a blue snakeskin with a woven effect. Was $580, now $203. Jenna woven snakeskin tote

Coffee Break: Enamel Oval Necklace

Kenneth Jay Lane Enamel Oval NecklaceThe Saks sale is now up to 40% off, with new items added — and I’m liking this simple black necklace. I think it would be a great addition to a really colorful top — even a print — and think that it’s large and distinctive enough to make it a statement necklace. Lovely. Was $275, now $192 at Enamel Oval Necklace

Coffee Break: Myka Suede Wedge Shoes

Women's Merona® Myka Suede Wedge Shoes - PlumCorporette commenters have sung the praises of these $30 wedges for a while (including today), but I don’t think we’ve ever featured them properly on the site. To hear the commenters tell it: They’re comfortable. They’re versatile. (And they come in purple suede, which you know I love.) They’re $30 at Women’s Merona® Myka Suede Wedge Shoes – Plum

Coffee Break: Air Swan Oxford Pump

Maria Sharapova Collection by Cole Haan Women's Air Swan Oxford Pump The one shoe I find myself wearing a ton of this season is my heeled oxford pumps — they work with tights, they work with trousers. I’m loving the look of these Cole Haan pumps — they have the “Air” cushioning, they have a platform, and they’re part of the Maria Sharapova collection, all of which seem to bode really well for comfort. They’re even on sale at Endless — the pinot noir (pictured) and black are both $170; the gray “Ironstone” is down to $114 (all originally $228). There’s a lot of sizes left, also… Maria Sharapova Collection by Cole Haan Women’s Air Swan Oxford Pump
