Coffee Break – “Modern Metallic” Gold Resin Geometric Frontal Necklace

Kenneth Cole New York "Modern Metallic" Gold Resin Geometric Frontal NecklaceOooh: Love the geometric look to this necklace from Kenneth Cole New York. I’d wear it to jazz up a ton of simple shapes — the black turtleneck, a solid colored cardigan or boatneck sweater — and even as part of a more layered look, such as with a crisp button front blouse, open to mid-chest, with a meant-to-be-seen tank top or camisole beneath it. The necklace is $98 at Endless. Kenneth Cole New York “Modern Metallic” Gold Resin Geometric Frontal Necklace


Coffee Break – Studded Lambskin Tote

Lauren Merkin Bella Studded Lambskin ToteWow: I’ve admired Lauren Merkin’s clutches and smaller bags for years, but I did not know the line now has totes. (And iPad cases!! Awesome!)  I like this tote (pictured here in burgundy, but also available in navy and olive).  Knowing her products, I’m sure the lambskin leather is ridiculously soft, and 11″x16″x3″ size is perfect for smaller papers and general commutes.  The studs are a nice touch to give it some interest, but honestly I’d prefer a plainer bag.  If they’re your thing, though, you’re in luck:  the bag was $575, now marked to $230 at Endless.  Lauren Merkin Bella Studded Lambskin Tote

Coffee Break – DKNY Burnished Pleated Flower Large Hobo

DKNY Burnished Pleated Flower Large HoboI love the look of this burnished leather hobo from DKNY, available in burgundy (pictured, available at Zappos for $206.50), gray (also available at Zappos, for $221.25), green (available at Endless for $228.27 and Amazon for $202) and dark blue (available at Amazon for $177.) I like the pleats on the bag, the general size, the removable chain detailing as well as the “rosette charm.” Looks like a nice size in general, too. Note that most colors (except the gray) seem to be on the brink of selling out, so you may want to move quickly if you love it…


Coffee Break: Wanda Flat

Delman Wanda Flat Endless has a bunch of great sales right now — lots of great brands on sale including Kate Spade, L.A.M.B., Cole Haan, and more.  Today I’m liking these simple geometric flats from Delman.  The red patent is cheerful and bright, and the closed toe helps make the other cut-outs more appropriate for a conservative office.  The flats were $250, now marked to $137.50 at Endless.  Delman Women’s Wanda Flat

Coffee Break: Barbarella Pump Wave

Rockport Women's Barbarella Pump WaveI saw this shoe mentioned somewhere recently as one of the highest-rated heels for comfort, and have had my eye on it. The “smokey teal” color, pictured,  is particularly fun — but it also comes in the more sedate black, brown, and “camel.” The shoe is normally $130, but with the Cyber-Monday deals going on at Endless (spend $100 save $30, spend $200 save $60, spend $300 save $100) the price drops to a reasonable $104.92 (with free shipping).
