Soladite Torsade Beaded BraceletSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Brooks Brothers is having a sick clearance sale, with lots of items marked up to 70% off. I always like Brooks Brothers jewelry for a classy vibe to “going out,” and that includes this soladite torsade bracelet (also available in onyx and rose quartz). I think it’s way too much for the workday (too big, too noisy, too cumbersome to type in) but for a night out… well, that’s another story. It was $128, now marked to $51.20 at the sale.

Dana Kellin Black Spinel, Black Cubic Zirconia Jeweled HoopsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Wowza: stunning earrings from Dana Kellin’s higher end line. She has a number of pieces where the stones are on the inside of an open frame, like this; I like this particular earring because the frame with the stones is separate from the part that loops through the ear — meaning they will have a bit of movement and twirl. They’re the perfect statement for an evening out, whether they’re accessorizing a simple pair of jeans or a great “hot mama” dress. The earrings are $440 at Endless.

There are all sorts of reasons I shouldn’t like this jean — it’s a skinny pant, it’s ankle length, it’s bright royal blue, and it’s expensiveish — but I can’t help it: I really want a pair.  I think they’d look as cute with motorcycle boots and a big comfy sweater as they would with a more polished casual look, such as ballet flats, a crisp white blouse, and a neutral blazer.  The jeans are $175 at Net a Porter. 511 mid-rise corduroy skinny jeans

Cleobella Mexicana ClutchSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I am new to the magic that is Cleobella, apparently — but the designer’s line of wallets and clutches all have the same intricate, artistic look to them. I like this vibrant “aqua” clutch and the slightly bookish shape to it. It’s $160 at Endless (also available in fuschia, lime, royal blue, and silver). Cleobella Mexicana Clutch

UPDATE RE: TECH WOES, 8:48 ET: I’ve turned comments off, momentarily, again while we try to get the past day and a half of the website back.  Stay tuned…

UPDATE 3:20 PM ET SATURDAY: Sigh. And we’re back up and running… again. I really apologize for the disruption, ladies — hope everyone’s having a great weekend regardless. (And yes, all comments basically from Thursday mid-afternoon to Friday evening are now gone… so if you had something important in there, please re-comment.)

Alexa Chung for Madewell It's All Happening Denim TrousersSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I am drooling over a lot of the denim at Madewell, and particularly these wide leg trousers by Alexa Chung for Madewell. They have just the right amount of ’70s vibe to them — you get the laidback feeling without having to set your entire weekend to a Cat Stevens soundtrack. These are $145 at Madewell.

Nanette Lepore Trapunto Flap SatchelSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Great simple satchel from Nanette Lepore — and it’s on sale! The bag was originally $495, but Amazon has limited sizes and colors available for as low as $198, while Zappos and Endless are a bit higher (sigh). Nanette Lepore Trapunto Flap Satchel
