Coffee Break: Stevie Flap Shoulder Bag

Antonio Melani "Stevie" Flap Shoulder BagWe’re digging this “whiskey” colored bag from Antonio Melani — love the geometric look to the seaming, the flip-lock closure, and the comfortable strap-drop length.  It’s $179, only at Antonio Melani “Stevie” Flap Shoulder Bag

Coffee Break: Dr. Scholl’s Graduate

Dr. Scholl's - Graduate (Bronze Pulled PU) - FootwearWe’re liking these comfortable flats from Dr. Scholl — heralded by a number of readers in this post as being super comfortable.  We like the slight point to the toe, the circular buckle, and the number of different colors available — our favorites are these bronze ones (on sale for $56.70), but Zappos also has them in gunmetal, grey plaid, gold foil, and beige (Dr. Scholl’s – Graduate (Bronze Pulled PU) – Footwear).  Endless also has them in a number of pastels, a red, and a few animal prints; in limited sizes they also have two black pairs (prices range from $38.47 to $69.95), and Shoebuy has much more sizes of the plain black ones available for $68.


Coffee Break: Indo Tracolla Large Crossbody

Furla Handbags - Indo Tracolla Large Crossbody (Onyx) - Bags and LuggageZappos seems to have a ton of designer totes on 25-30% discount today, including this lovely crossbody tote, which strikes us as a very rich looking, and functional bag for toting work papers. It’s 17.25″ wide, 5″ deep, and 12.5″ high — love the dotted lining and the chain detail on the detachable shoulder strap. It’s $395 (was $529) at Zappos Couture.

Coffee Break: Vintage Waist Belt

After today’s earlier post re: accessories, we went off in search of great belts — and found a ton of them at ShopBop. Today we’re particularly liking this vintage waist belt from Linea Pelle — great color and great loop/button details. Love the idea of it belted over a long black cardigan, light gray pants, and perhaps a few strands of white or gray pearls at the neckline, and perhaps a silver cuff, worn on top of the sweater sleeve. It’s $84 at ShopBop. Linea Pelle Vintage Waist Belt

Coffee Break: Naturalizer’s Lockhart

It’s time for end-of-season clearance at Naturalizer — including markdowns on these fabulous zebra-striped shoes.  Love the walkable two-inch heel, the conservative buckle paired with the zebra print, and the great padding inside the shoe.  It’s also available in black leather and a great “saddle tan” leather.  Was $79, now $39.99.  Naturalizer Lockhart

(Pssst – if you’re a fan of Naturalizer, check out the sale going on today at, as well — this shoe isn’t among the sale items, but lots of other fun things.  The sale ends 8/6.)


Coffee Break: High Fashion Tote

High Fashion 3023 Drawstring ToteOK, so we’re not sold on the name (they couldn’t come up with anything better than “3023 Drawstring Tote”?) but we like the look of this product.  Love the vertical stripes of alternating leathers, as well as the nice size — it’s 15.25″ high, 14.25″ wide, and 3″ deep, with an 8″ shoulder drop.  Also love the different colors it comes in:  purple (pictured), mud/taupe, grey, and black.  It’s $238 at High Fashion 3023 Drawstring Tote,Purple,one size
