Coffee Break: Portrait Pump

Seychelles Portrait Pump | CorporetteI mentioned these briefly in the strappy heels roundup last week, but I thought they deserved a highlight of their own. Look how purty! I think all of the iterations here are great — of course I love the purple on purple, but there’s a lovely teal version, as well as silver and black. I like the slightly pointed almond toe, as well as the 3.25″ heel. Love. (For tights weather, either try it with a tightly woven nude-for-you fishnet (know your office!!) or navy tights. The shoe is $110 at Zappos. Seychelles Portrait Pumps

Coffee Break: The Collector’s Box

Bonlook's The Collector's Box | CorporetteIf you’re like me (and having fun with ordering inexpensive eyeglasses online), this box seems like a clever, lovely way to store them (and, ha, much better than my tactic of throwing them all in a drawer).  I think it would look lovely sitting on a dresser or vanity, or even sitting out of the way on your desk at work.  It’s $39 at BonLook.  The Collector’s Box

Coffee Break: Rocco Heat-Sensitive Color-Changing Satchel Duffel Bag

Alexander Wang Rocco Heat-Sensitive Color-Changing Satchel Duffel Bag | CorporetteYou know, I always did like mood rings. So when I saw this much (much) more expensive version — in a bag that has serious staying power — in one of my favorite colors anyway — well. Now I’m tempted. The duffel bag is $1,150 at Neiman Marcus. Alexander Wang Rocco Heat-Sensitive Color-Changing Stud-Bottom Satchel Duffel Bag

Coffee Break: Ruffle Wrap

Nordstrom Ruffle Wrap | CorporetteA wool wrap is great for weather like this where you’re not quite sure how many layers you’re going to need — especially if you’re going out in the evening when temperatures may dip drastically. I like the ruffle on this one and the fact that it’s 100% wool — it’s going to be much more substantial than a poly blend like the ones you buy on the street. It’s available in black, gray, and a dark and light beige, all for $98. Nordstrom Ruffle Wrap

P.S. We’ve just installed a plugin that will allegedly fix the “posting too quickly” problem. Please let us know how it goes (or if you notice any new problems crop up). Thank you for your patience!

Coffee Break: Penelope Flat

Footzyfolds Penelope Flat | CorporetteWe’ve covered foldable flats a few times in the past, so I don’t write about them often, but I definitely use the few pairs I have pretty frequently — I even took some with me to my cousin’s wedding a few months ago as a back-up option. I love the little mesh details and fun colors on these Penelope flats. They’re available in sizes 6-11, for $54.95, at Nordstrom. Footzyfolds Penelope Flat

Coffee Break: Yves Crocodile Embossed Leather Tote Bag

Pour la Victoire Yves Crocodile Embossed Leather Tote Bag | CorporetteOoh la la — I love this teal and black tote bag from Pour la Victoire. The deep colors and zipper/croc details are all right up my alley. This is also available in a butter yellow (limited stock), which is less up my alley, but may be up yours. The bag was $395 but is now marked to $206 at Last Call. Pour la Victoire Yves Crocodile Embossed Leather Tote Bag
