Coffee Break: Washed Up Billy

Marc by Marc Jacobs Washed Up Billy | Corporette

Teal is one of the only colors I don’t have in my bag collection, and I’m not sure why — it looks bright but versatile, and would be a fun pop of color against outfits with purple, red, blue, and more. This bag was $458, but is currently marked down to $275 at 6pm. Marc by Marc Jacobs Washed Up Billy

Update: Looks like the bag is now sold out at 6pm, but try Nordstrom.


Coffee Break: Verona Seam Detail Jacket

Reiss Verona Seam Detail JacketThis looks more like an outdoor than an indoor jacket to me — but I’d probably wear it as both, truth be told. I like the bright blue and the seam details, and the high funnel neck. It was $395 (and the black still is), but this happy bright blue is marked down to $180. It’s available in sizes XS-L.

Coffee Break: Gardner Pump

Joan & David Gardner Pump | Corporette

These Joan & David pumps look very similar to old reader favorite the Gila pump, but with a bit fancier of a cutout. These lipstick red patent pumps look absolutely gorgeous, although the light brown, navy, bronze, or black (all patent) are also all good. There’s a blue suede that is also calling my name (of course). They’re $66-$91 at (were $190). Joan & David Gardner Pump


Coffee Break: Ruby Mini Hoop Earrings

Ileana Makri Ruby Mini Hoop Earrings | CorporetteI always love me a good huggy earring, and this mini hoop from Ileana Makri looks like it fits the bill. I like the hinge back with the super teeny hoop (10mm), and I think the ruby color would look gorgeous against most, if not all, skin tones. The earrings are $1,050 at Barneys (also available in green tsavorite). Ileana Makri Ruby Mini Hoop Earrings


Coffee Break: Madison Leather Small Phoebe Shoulder Bag

Coach Madison Leather Small Phoebe Shoulder Bag | CorporetteThis Coach bag is one of Zappos’ best sellers, and it’s easy to see why — it’s available in 12 bright colors and has none of the logo madness that Coach has been known for in recent years. The 52 glowing reviews speak of sumptuous leather and intelligent organization — lovely. The light pink ruby (pictured) is on sale for $286.40, as is a fun orange “mandarin” color; the rest are full price at $358. (6pm also has a beige snakeskin print on sale for $238, and Amazon has a zillion colors for $150-$528.) Nordstrom also has several colors (and another 53 glowing reviews). Coach Madison Leather Small Phoebe Shoulder Bag


Coffee Break: “Wicked” Head Wrap

Sweaty Bands | CorporetteThese highly-rated headbands are apparently perfect for a workout — I could see them being particularly great when you’re working out at a company gym or a gym near the office and actually care what you look like. They come in a zillion colors and are marked $15 (2 for $25). Sweaty Bands “Wicked” Head Wrap
