If you are obsessed with the ballerina look like I am, you will want these lace up leather pumps from Miu Miu. What I find amazing about them as opposed to the Miu Miu ballet flats is the 3.5 inches of heel on them. Since I am petite, I like a little help in the height department and these Miu Miu pumps are just what I need. Also, these are a great classic style that you can wear without the lace with any black suit jacket for a work event or lace them up to wear with a pair of boyfriend jeans for a night out. The gingham black and white ribbon will give you a more casual look and the black ribbon will help you lace up a more glamorous look for a dressier occasion this holiday season. Either way, this Miu Miu lace up pump is a classic for your closet. Get them at Net a Porter.
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.
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.

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.
