The Shopbop sale is back! I love using this as an opportunity to pick up the one (or two, or three) items I’ve had on my list for some time but haven’t managed to bite the bullet.

Below I’ve picked out a few items that caught my eye because I believe in sharing.

Recently I was invited (last minute) to a pretty fancy party and I was left without a dress. How do I not own at least one fancy party dress, I do not know. Luckily Rent the Runway came through but it got me thinking that a gal should have at minimum one festive dress. Don’t get caught slipping once holiday season comes around.

Autumn is all about cozy clothes for me. Sweater dress, oversized sweaters,

I almost always use the Shop sale as an opportunity to pick up a new bag. I may not spend a lot of money on clothes but bags and shoes? Yes, please. You already know of my love of the Pashli tote and my Alexander Wang Emile and Rockie. Contemplating the mini Rockie, because, why not?!

Every season I contemplate getting a new coat. Maybe this time I go for it.

If fall rolls around and you don’t wear booties, did fall even exist?

I love the look of a sleek over the knee boot. It’s casual yet chic at the same damn time.

Use code MAINEVENT16 at checkout. Some exclusions apply. The sale ends October 14, 2016, at 11:59 pm PT so get to it!

Hey guys! Today’s video is a bag reveal of my new Alexander Wang Small Emile tote in Pebbled Latte with Rose Gold hardware. Shop or see it here

I don’t know why I tried to build suspense in the video when the title gives it away 😒. I’m so happy to have bought this bag since I’ve had my eye on it for some time. I have the original (large) Emile tote and did a brief comparison in case you’re looking for a frame of reference.

The Alexander Wang Small Emile measures at 14.5″L x 11″H x 6″W with a 5″ handle drop and 17″ shoulder strap drop according to the Alexander Wang website. On Barneys they listed it as 11.0″ height x 9.5″ length x 6.0″ depth (approximately). The large Alexander Wang Emile that I have is 13″ H x 16″W x 6 1/2″ D. I bought this bag in 2011 (!!!) so the sizes could have been tweaked over the years.

If you’re thinking about buying a pricey handbag, definitely wait until a sale or friends and family like I did. I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a bag full price simply because I KNOW there will come a time when you can get some money off of it. I you prefer buying bags full price, more power to you.

It seems I’m going to be doing a bit of traveling this year and while I love my current carry on, I’m itching for one that has swivel wheels. It’s truly the little things! It’s a lot easier to go through the airport and you won’t have to deal with your carry on tumbling over. I’ve got my eye on this Herschel Supply Co. Trade Suitcase as it’s affordable but there’s also the sleek options by Tumi (here and here).

On the accessories front, I’ll always recommend the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Medium Satchel and I’d be a liar if I didn’t tell you I’m considering getting it in black 🙈. This Miansai Screw Cuff has been in my cart for a long time and I think it’s time to bite the bullet. So chic, no?

Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats are so cute! I’m not even a cat person. I live for a good Moschino iPhone Cover and how dope are these?? Lastly, I’m in the springtime mood and these floral Kate Spade New York Licorice Pumps are so seasonally appropriate.

With spring right around the corner, now’s the perfect time to snap up some light weather wears during the Shopbop spring sale.
