Coffee Break: Lendra Pump

Rockport Lendra Pump | Corporette

Yes, yes: we all know I love a good purple pump. I like the sleek look and the mix of suede and leather (to say nothing of the adidas technology) in these nice Rockport pumps. They’re on a great sale, too — they were $110, but are now marked to $55 at (There’s a very similar peep-toe purple heel for around the same price. As always, though, know your office — peep toes aren’t appropriate at every workplace.) The pictured pump is $55. Rockport Lendra Pump


Coffee Break: BII Flats

Pour la Victoire BII | CorporetteI always love a good flat with cutouts, and these are on a great deal at 6pm. I like the mesh and the scalloped, decorative cutouts, along with the beige and black patent neutrals. The flat was $225 but is now $112. Pour la Victoire BII


Coffee Break: Tate Grainy Duffel Satchel Bag

Deux Lux Tate Grainy Duffel Satchel Bag | CorporetteI’m unfamiliar with the brand Deux Lux, but I’ve seen a TON of great looking bags for very budget-friendly prices of late. Today I’m swooning over this emerald green satchel (also available in olive, merlot, and camel). For my $.02, a bright green bag is a great pop of color with most outfits — and in my humble opinion it’s easiest to wear the color as a bag (rather than as a shoe, or dress, or scarf, etc). The bag was $135, but is currently marked to $40 at LastCall. Deux Lux Tate Grainy Duffel Satchel Bag


Coffee Break: Sergio Rossi Pumps

Sergio Rossi A62430 MCAZX01Hello, sailor. I randomly came across these Sergio Rossi heels while doing the low heel roundup (these are 2.25″) but wanted to save these for a coffee break to be drooled over on their own accord. I love that dark purple suede, and I’ve never seen a gold detail quite like that on the back of the heel — it’s interesting but classic all at the same time. The shoes are $785.

Coffee Break: Orchard Enamel Watch

RumbaTime Orchard Enamel WatchI was going to write a whole thing about how yes, it is obvious that I am obsessed with the cobalt version of this watch. But you know what? For once I am MORE obsessed with this “rose smoke” color, which reminds me of a watch that Audrey Hepburn wore in How to Steal a Million — I hunted for something similar for years without success. And while I am sure hers was leather and this is silicone, this one is also a mere $45, so there’s that.  The watch is available in a number of colors — fuchsia! violet! white! black! — and there exists another version of the watch face (sold separately) that looks like a big gemstone.  What fun! And the best part: all of the watches are only $45, all at Shopbop. RumbaTime Orchard Enamel Watch


Coffee Break: H574175 Pumps

Cesare Paciotti H574175I hate when retailers don’t “name” their products, even though I know intellectually there’s no real difference than if these shoes were named “Molly” versus H574175. That aside, I like the sexy but professional vibe to these 3″ heels by Cesare Paciotti — and I love (love!) the red and black print on the bottom of the shoes, even though I’d probably ask a cobbler to cover the very bottom of the shoe (just beneath the ball of your foot) with a rubber tread so I wouldn’t slip. These are on a great sale: they were $472, but are on sale today for $236. Cesare Paciotti H574175
