Rag & Bone Leather Skirt Shorts – LOVE OR HATE?Â I was not sure about leather shorts when they came out this summer because they were the short short gym looking shorts that designers designed into leather shorts for very tall model legged women. Unless you are 5 feet 8 inches and 120 pounds or below then you could wear those leather gym shorts, however if you are like the rest of us with non gazelle like limbs, check out an alternative that is great and new for Fall 2013.
Rag & Bone brought out a great option for those of us non gazelle like people who also want to participate in this leather shorts trend. Check out these just above the knee skort skirt like shorts from Rag & Bone called the Dakar shorts that are perfect for work or play. You can wear these shorts with a white tee and a pair of flats or a pair of pumps and a jacket for work. These are so versatile and comfortable you will be able to wear these all Fall into Winter and Spring and next summer. I think these are a great addition to any wardrobe for fall. What do you think?
Rag & Bone Baylor Espadrilles Perfect for TRAVEL on SALE – I wish I had these shoes when I was walking around in New York City last week. I tried these on when they were on sale for $190 in New York City, but now that they are $119 from $290 they are really a must buy. If you look at the shoes you may want to know what is so special about these shoes? Well for one thing they are very slouchy good looking shoes that resemble your most favorite pair of sneakers in suede, they are leather lined so you can wear them as if you wear a pair of flats, and they are espadrilles so they are super comfortable for your feet. I think Rag & Bone really thought of everything when they made these great looking shoes. I can see myself wearing these with linen pants or a dress. They are definitely a great versatile travel shoe for summer and now that they are 70% off, they are a great deal.
If there is one way to show some of my favorite items for Winter 2012 it is to show you a visual collage of how I like to put things together. Since it is early Winter 2012 and it is cold everywhere or rainy, we have our jackets and ankle boots ready to go. One of my go to looks is the boyfriend blazer, ankle boots, tunic, coated denim jeans, and a great bangle and turquoise necklace. It is just the right pop of color without overwhelming worn with a great functional size bag made with the most sumptuous leather. Take a look at my picks from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Joie, DL1961, and Rag & Bone.
Get the Rag & Bone black motorcycle boots for $595.
The 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 hour bag is gorgeous and functional for $795.

Check out the Nessa Peacock Turquoise Tourmaline necklace for $1,565.Â And do not forget the arm party. Add theÂ Marni Coal Vertical Band Bangle Bracelet for $345 to complete your Spring 2012 look.
If there ever was a pair of leather pants that were fabulous in every way they would be the Rag & Bone RBW 23 Leather pants with the ankle zips. Really great pair of pants for lots of different reasons. First the ankle zip on the leather pants are very long, second the leather pants are a different take on the soft lambskin leather pull on Vince pair (which is fabulous in a different way) because it has a matte suede like texture, and third it has a shorter inseam of 28 inches so you will not need to hem the pants even if you are 5 feet 2 inches tall. They will still fit without being too long. Pair them with the Rag & Bone ankle boots and you are all set for the winter holidays.

For those of you who want something similar, but want to spend a little less, check out the Monika Chiang leather ankle zip motorcycle pants available in a 28 on Ebay.com. They are $279 and look very similar. They are on the Monika Chiang site for $895 currently so you can get an idea of the look on a model.
Whatever pair you choose, they are a fabulous look. Definitely a must have for the holidays. You can easily wear them for a holiday party or out at night.
It is that holiday gift giving time of year again and you are probably getting invitations to parties and booking trips to go see your families. Gift giving is always a stressful time of the year and you will need to figure out what to get your husband’s brother’s wife or your mother in law’s boyfriend for holiday gifts, but while doing that why not take a little time and give yourself something special for this time of year. You work hard you deserve it. What is it that you have wanted all year? Is it a Hermes birkin bag? A pair of Prada shoes? a Rag & Bone jacket?
This year we thought we would make gift giving even more rewarding for you to shop designers for yourself for the holidays by thinking Green. Why not look at items that may have been pre loved? When you buy something preowned you can get quite a great deal. You can also find items that are very hard to find or no longer being made. So many great finds can be found when you are not looking to shop for your favorite designers in the same place where everyone else is shopping. You may end up with a highly coveted piece that the designer no longer makes. Also you may find something for a loved one to fill your gift giving quota.
Case in point – the following items were rare finds on Ebay.com that I thought you may be interested in. They are all designers and in great condition. Think GREEN this holiday and save.

A bonus turquoise item that I love for this season is the Rag & Bone Silver Tuxedo blazer jacket in turquoise as seen on Divya on the USA Network show Royal Pains this past week. The color is just the right shade of turquoise and ranks among my favorites from this season along with the Stella McCartney pink blazer seen on Charlize Theron a few weeks back. You can buy this blazer on sale at Les Nouvelles for $315 plus an additional 10% off with coupon code SHOPLN10 at checkout.Â
Black ankle booties always scream chic, but some can start to look like all the other ones if youâ€™re not careful. Here are my top 3 picks of black ankle booties that will be sure to set you apart from the crowd.
First, I love the Acne Pistol Short BootiesÂ for $570. The natural tan heel and detailing provide a cool contrast with the matte black leather and the tassel zipper makes a stylish adornment. You can rock these over jeans or alone for a great look.
These Maison Martin Margiela Open Toe BootiesÂ for $955Â are super sexy and sleek. The soft nubuck, open-toe front, and dainty button on the exaggerated strap give this bootie a unique appearance while still remaining elegantly classy.
My third choice is the Rag & Bone Moto Boots IIÂ for $595.Â These motorcycle-style booties add an edge to the typical black ankle booties. The tough exterior of these booties looks amazing when paired with a feminine dress or flowy blouse, creating the perfect contrast.
