Coffee Break: Miss Havisham Crystal Encrusted Snake Chain Collar Necklace

Alexis Bittar Miss Havisham Crystal Encrusted Snake Chain Collar Necklace | CorporetteThe Nordstrom Anniversary Sale may be over for the year, but Bloomingdale’s has a huge sale going on right now — save an extra 50%, for a total savings of 60-80% off. I’m a fan of all things Bittar, and this crystal-encrusted snake necklace is no different. I think it’s a great necklace that is delicate but still makes an impact — a new kind of statement necklace. It was $195, but is now marked to $109.69. Alexis Bittar Miss Havisham Crystal Encrusted Snake Chain Collar Necklace


Coffee Break: Sidekick Shoulder Bag

The Row Sidekick Shoulder Bag | CorporetteThe Row kills it again with this gorgeous yellow suede shoulder bag. Love the goldtone hardware (so chic with yellow!) and all of the pockets. Gorrrrgeous. It’s $2,700 at Barney’s New York. The Row Sidekick Shoulder Bag

Coffee Break: ‘Bonnie’ Shawl Collar Skirted Coat

Trina Turk 'Bonnie' Shawl Collar Skirted Coat | CorporetteHmmmn. I had been obsessing over this blue coat when the sale first hit — it’s now almost sold out, but I am now obsessing over this dark green one instead. Call me silly, but I always prefer a button to a loose belt with a coat — something about the belt feels so bathrobe-like to me with the heavy wool. I love the saturated, vibrant green color, but it’s also available in a muted beige and black. (It was available in petites, but is now almost entirely sold out — call your local store if you love it; maybe they can find one among the recent returns for you.) It’s $364 during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; after that it goes up to $545. Trina Turk ‘Bonnie’ Shawl Collar Skirted Coat

Here’s a lower-priced option and a plus-size alternative.


Coffee Break: Wide Stamped Leather and Suede Belt

White House | Black Market Wide Stamped Leather and Suede Belt | CorporetteOooh, pretty. This dark blue leather belt from White House | Black Market looks like just the thing for wearing with cardigans both long and short– I even like the idea of it with some of the high-waisted flared skirts coming out now. It’s $58 at WHBM, available in sizes XXS-XXL. White House | Black Market Wide Stamped Leather and Suede Belt


Coffee Break: ‘Tenice’ Pointy Toe Pump

Ivanka Trump 'Tenice' Pointy Toe Pump | CorporetteHello, gorgeous. I’m not sure how I missed this well-reviewed pump from my roundups of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I’m in love with it and kind of having a hard time picking a color — I like the gray the best, I think, but the black, cobalt, and beige are all fab as well. (And, for those of you with wide feet: The black also comes in wide widths.) I particularly like the back-zip closure so you don’t have to fuss with the straps, and the 3″ height is lovely. The shoes are currently marked down to $89, but once the sale ends on August 3 they’ll be $129. Ivanka Trump ‘Tenice’ Pointy Toe Pump

Here’s a slightly lower-priced option.


Coffee Break: ‘Mariella’ Satchel

Hobo Mariella | CorporetteI feel like the red bag is almost a workwear classic — wear it with black, navy, gray, white, beige, as well as colors like purple, blues (particularly light blue), oranges, and pinks. This Hobo satchel looks fabulous (it also comes in a black bag with brown accents, perfect for those of you who hate wearing black bags with brown clothes), and at 12″ x 9″ x 3″ it should even be big enough for a pad of paper or iPad. It’s $198 at Zappos. Hobo Mariella
