Rebecca Minkoff’s black leather backpack is super cute for BACK TO SCHOOL. Even if it is your kids who are going back to school or if it is you who is going back to school or just back to regular work hours after a long summer, this is the perfect black leather backpack to wear on the train or just sling over your shoulder so you are hands free for those daily commuting to work tasks. I love it because the hardware is all black and gives the back the perfect neutral palette for you to match your everyday wardrobe from work to drinks to weekends going to Soul Cycle.
UNIF Soft American Commence Cardigan – if you are looking for a prepster summer tennis country club look to go over your bathing suit or your on the Lake outfit for the last few days of summer, this is the perfect sweater. It is made of a fluffy fun fabric and fashioned in that tennis cardigan oversized boyfriend jacket look. You can wear this cardigan with your ripped t shirts and white Golden Goose tennis shoes, or make it really a classic and throw it over your tennis dress. However you wear it, wear it often because it will become a favorite in your closet.
Anniel Winter Hiker Boots with Faux Fur – you may be asking why I would want to even talk about these faux Fur winter hiker boots as it is 102 degrees outside in all of California. Well, it is mid August and all the college kids are going back to school and in about 2 weeks all the elementary school children are back at school and then it will be Labor Day and suddenly there will be a chill in the air on the East Coast and these will be gone because they look so much like the Isabel Marant shearling boots that everyone coveted last season that are back for fall for double the price. That is why I am telling you about these for $335.
Get these now before they are gone here.
Buscemi Black Leather Backpack – if you have not seen the Buscemi black leather backpack or the Buscemi black leather high top sneakers then you may have been under a social media rock. Buscemi and the Greats Brand guys have been taking social media by storm and their well made Italian leather products may have something to do with it. Up until now I have sort of been a bystander when it came to checking out the Buscemi products on social media, but this new PhD backpack by Buscemi is something that had me jump to my feet and take notice. I love this bag because it evokes the feel of a Hermes birkin bag in its front pouch and on the detail of the lock on the side pockets. The backpack by Buscemi is their original design with just a few details that remind me of H. I think that is ok considering most companies will copy a font from a company they like so that consumers will get a subliminal message that they are shopping at the same type of store when they see that same font. Even with this slight similarity I have to say there are so many other differences that make this backpack so unique that it is definitely its own unique style. Bottom line is – I want one. I am sure you do. I want my birkin style backpack. The question is what color?
Topshop Motorcycle Black Leather Jacket for Fall – if you are looking for a great looking leather jacket for fall look no further than the motorcycle leather jacket from Topshop exclusive to Nordstrom. The leather on this jacket is hefty like the motorcycle leather jackets you see on supermodels like Kate Moss or as seen from the first version of the Balenciaga leather jacket except the price is about 1/4 what you would pay for the Balenciaga leather jacket. There are not too many zippers so you won’t feel like you on our stage. You can just throw this jacket over anything this fall and know that it will go with everything in your closet.

Saint Laurent Star Court Sneakers are the coolest sneakers around at the moment. If you are among the people in the know and love the very subtle elegance of anything Saint Laurent as made famous by celebrities like Angelina Jolie, then you should buy this pair of Saint Lauren star court sneakers in the white with the silver stars before they are gone for the season. They have them in the white with the black stars, but I like the subtle look of the silver stars because you can wear it with your casual activewear or you can wear it with your long skirts and a blazer this fall. The comfort is what is key for me and if you can look stylish and run around in a pair of sneakers that is a winner.

Aquazzura Belgravia Suede Esparilles are all the rage in black, mondrian blue, and brown this season because all your favorite bloggers have gone from wearing the Chanel espadrilles to the ankle lace up Aquazurra espadrilles. The ones that everyone have been coveting since spring are now finally in stock and going pretty quickly. I personally love the black suede lace up espadrilles because they can go with shorts, dressses, skirts, and leggings for a year round shoe. These shoes are totally versatile and totally gorgeous.
Wildfox 80’s Star Swimsuit for July 4th – Just because you are already sitting down eating your BBQ for July 4th before you head out to the pool or beach for the rest of the July 4th weekend to watch more fireworks doesn’t mean it is too late to get this 80’s style one piece star swimsuit. I love the look of it because I just love stars on clothing. This blue and white one piece is perfect for July 4th but also perfect for the rest of the summer when you want to try out paddleboarding and wakeboarding. A one piece is a great way to keep you covered and looking great at the same time. This way there is no chance of a wave taking away your top or bottom while you are concentrating on paddling.
