Weekend Open Thread (and: Please Take the Corporette Survey!)

Cole Haan - Shayna Air High Sandal (Peacock) - FootwearSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Yowza — I love, love, love these sandals from Cole Haan.  Love the Nike Air technology, the way the straps dip in the front rather than going straight across the ankle (so much more flattering) and I love the fun colors: peacock (pictured), a beigy maple sugar, a darker brown “Woodbury,” and black.  Today, they’re on sale for $163-$208; they originally were $298.

Dean Harris Druzy Agate EarringsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’ve been taken with the look of druzy agate lately — I feel like I’ve seen it in a million “flash” sales and the like. I haven’t seen the perfect piece of jewelry with it yet — but these earrings are a strong contender. I’m a huge fan of Dean Harris jewelry anyway, and these white gold oval drop earrings with a slight leaf detail are lovely. They’re $920 at Barney’s New York. Dean Harris Druzy Agate Earrings

P.S. If you haven’t taken the Corporette Survey (or entered the giveaway), please do so — I will be forever grateful!

Noir Jewelry - When Pigs Fly Ring (Pink) - Jewelry Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

After last weekend’s flamingo clutch, reader J passed along this hilarious ring, noting “this happy-go-lucky ring will definitely be added to my weekend wardrobe in the near future.” I like it, although I worry that those wings will be snag-o-rific when it comes to pretty much anything. The ring is $150 at Zappos. Noir Jewelry – When Pigs Fly Ring (Pink) – Jewelry Bony Levy Black Diamond Ring (Nordstrom Exclusive)For my own $.02, I was drooling (drooling!) over this black diamond cocktail ring form the Nordstrom Anniversary sale — $1445 marked down to $998. I do love a sale… Bony Levy Black Diamond Ring (Nordstrom Exclusive)icon

Kate Spade New York - Jocelyn (Cream) - Bags and LuggageSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Zappos currently has a number of Kate Spade items marked down 25-30%, and for the weekend, I’m loving this comical clutch that I’ve been ogling for a while. Love the pink flamingo detail, and I think the bright white and pink would be a lot more versatile than you might expect. It’s also nice that the bag expands to something a lot bigger — it strikes me as the perfect way to switch into flip flops and stash your heels as the night wears on. It was $325, now marked to $243.75. Kate Spade New York – Jocelyn (Cream) – Bags and Luggage

As noted earlier, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is on! For he weekend, I like this relaxed split neck top in a black and white floral — it’s classic, comfy, and looks super chic. After the sale ends on August 1 it’ll be $88, but for the moment it’s $59.90. Bellatrix Split Neck Woven Top

Stuart Weitzman - Vigorous (Black Nappa) - FootwearSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Zappos seems to have a ton of Stuart Weitzman shoes on sale today, some for truly great discounts. Take these boots, for example — I was hesitant about the “over the knee” trend at first, but I’ve finally come around to the opinion that the look really can be cute, particularly with leggings and a fabulous, big sweater. These boots were originally $595 — now marked to $285, and lots of sizes left in both the black and the brown. Nice! Stuart Weitzman – Vigorous (Black Nappa) – Footwear
