Coffee Break: Jewelry Pave Diamond Huggie Earrings

Ariel Gordon Jewelry Pave Diamond Huggie Earrings | CorporetteI love a good huggie earring, but the teenier, the better. This teensy tiny gold diamond hoop looks adorable, comfortable, classy — love, love, love. It’s $693 (an oddly specific price) at ShopBop. Ariel Gordon Jewelry Pave Diamond Huggie Earrings

Two slightly lower-priced options are here and here; here is a much lower-priced option.


Coffee Break: Crinkle Heels

Kate Spade New York CristieOoh: I think I found these heels when I was sorting through various wine-colored heels for our recent purple heels roundup.  While I do generally prefer the purply wine colored heels for maximum versatility, these dark red heels from Kate Spade are also droolworthy.  Something about the mixture of feminine details like a crinkle patent and a bow, juxtaposed with burgundy, which can be a sedate color, is a fun mix to me. It’s a 3″ heel, and also available in black patent, as well as an ivory and cream satin in sizes 5-11; all shoes are $328.   Kate Spade New York Cristie

Here’s a more affordable version in a similarly dark red patent.


Coffee Break: Le Pliage Briefcase

Longchamp Le Pliage BriefcaseInteresting: the Le Pliage now comes as a briefcase.  I’m interested to hear what you ladies think about this — on the one hand, it is a sleek look (and one that, I think, has become associated with quality), and it’s very lightweight, just like all of the other Longchamp nylon bags.  On the other hand — I’m not sure I want my important papers in a nylon briefcase.  Still, I think it’s a great option to keep in your bottom drawer at work (or even at the bottom of a larger tote) for those days when you just need to bring home a few papers that won’t fit in your regular bag.  The briefcase is $95, and available in six colors. Le Pliage Briefcase

Note that the regular Pliage bag is in our Hall of Fame. (One day I hope to make it its own page on the site, but for the time being it’s a growing category.)


Coffee Break: ‘Soho’ Leather Tote

Ivanka Trump 'Soho' Leather Tote | CorporetteI was intrigued to read about the new work tote that Team Ivanka has developed — and it looks pretty solid. I like all of the pockets, zippers, and organization, the fact that it isn’t too huge, and the fact that it comes in black and brown. (One note, though: no feet?!) The bag is $350 at Nordstrom.

Here’s a lower-priced alternative.


Coffee Break: Strato Loafers

Mgemi-StratoDriving moccasins have been around for eons but are now trending, and these brand new suede ones from M.Gemi look great for commuting and casual days at the office. (As you may recall, M.Gemi introduces new shoes every Monday, and retires older styles as they sell out — they currently have a ton of great pumps and flats for the office, many of which we’ve mentioned before.) I’m loving the grape and royal colors (the red and blue ones pictured), as well as the fact that they’re designed to mold to your foot — and I also like that you can learn more about the Italian factories and craftsmanship behind each shoe. Lovely. The Strato loafers are $198, available in sizes 35-42. Strato Loafers

Coffee Break: Carola Pump

Via Spiga Carola Pump | CorporetteOoh: love the muted red and texture on these 3.5″ heels — classic yet fun. I also like the fact that they come in nine colors, three widths, and sizes 5-12. They’re $195 at Zappos. Via Spiga Carola Pump

Psst: Amazon has a few colors on sale starting at $82, with some Prime-eligible.

Here’s a lower-priced option.
