Coffee Break: Belle Vivier Patent Leather Pumps

These patent leather pumps have a great vintage vibe — if someone found them in her grandmother’s closet, perfectly preserved, you would be totally jealous. But no, they’re from Roger Vivier (and they’re sporting the iconic buckle), and they’re available at Net-a-Porter for $695. Note that the heels are angled slightly inward — it’s a bit hard to tell from the images online. Sizes are 34–41 and are selling out, so don’t wait too long if these catch your eye. Belle Vivier Patent Leather Pumps

If you’re a fan of buckles as the focal point of a shoe but want something more affordable, try these options from Trotters and Naturalizer.

Coffee Break: Grosvenor Place Shoulder Bag

Knomo tote bags are always a favorite, and this one look fabulous as well. It’s nylon and water-resistant, the front pockets are RFID secure, and it can protect up to a 15″ laptop. I also love that it’s expandable so that you can make it as wide as you need — and I like the signature bright red lining. It just looks like a great bag. It’s $199 at Amazon and eligible for Prime and free returns. Knomo Grosvenor Place Shoulder Bag

Coffee Break: Hematite Leverback Stone Drop Earrings

These $16 stone drop earrings from Anne Klein look lovely, particularly if you’re looking for something fun and affordable to add a pop of color. They’re nice in that they’re not too blingy or distracting, and they add a bit of sparkle near your face. They’re available at Amazon with Prime and free returns. Hematite Leverback Stone Drop Earrings

Coffee Break: Trooper Nomad Nylon Saddle Bag

This nylon saddle bag from Marc Jacobs is very popular and seems like a great option if you prefer a very easy, clean bag to carry to work, or to use while running around doing errands on the weekend or as something to put into a bigger tote. Unlike a lot of crossbody bags, this one actually has some depth to it, which mean you can stuff more things in there. It just seems like a nice, lightweight nylon bag. It’s $295 at Nordstrom. Trooper Nomad Nylon Saddle Bag

Two more affordable options are at Amazon and Zappos.

Coffee Break: Emilia Pump

I’m always a fan of witty, colorful pumps like this — they can really make an outfit entirely by themselves. I love the low heel and classic almond toe shape — and note that if the pink/brown/black color scheme isn’t for you, the pump also comes in a light beige and a black. The shoe is $180 at Zappos, available in sizes 5-11. Amazon also has it in black and beige, as does Nordstrom — whoa, Nordstrom also has a teal/yellow version that’s definitely a statement.

Admin Update 2: I’m still emailing with my ad company regarding the bottom “Report” button not working, and I’ve seen at least one ad that didn’t even have a Report button. For the sidebar ads, though, note that the “Report ad” button is below the ad, as pictured here. If anyone ISN’T seeing that “Report ad” text, please send me a screenshot. (Also, if anyone can pretty please send me a screenshot of the CW ad, that would be greatly appreciated — I’m trying to bring it up by toggling between CWtv.net and Corporette but I’m not getting any ads regarding CW.) Thank you for your patience!

Coffee Break: Multistrand Imitation Pearl Necklace

Here’s a question we haven’t discussed in a while: What are your favorite brands for faux pearls? I’ve had good luck with Majorca, but readers have also raved about the Nadri brand in general — this triple strand pearl necklace is Nadri for $125. For my money (and energy and patience!) if ordering online I’d rather spend a little bit more to get a fake strand from a reputable brand that’s more likely to be good — but I also have a lot of friends who’ve rolled the die with a $25 Amazon purchase. Do you have faux pearls, readers? Which brands are your favorite — and what are deal breakers for you as far as faux pearls go (i.e., cheap clasp, lack of gold plating, uneven pearls, comically large pearls, etc.)?
