Let's see what you came up with!
When in doubt and in need of fun, don a pair of shimmering silver shoes. This futuristic metallic is the perfect pizazz to lighten up your Winter garb. Take inspiration from Vanessa Hudgens and pair your sexy LBD with some silver heels. If frocks aren't your thing, try these out with a svelte pair of skinny black pants and a festive top. Perfect for a holiday party — is it that time already?!

If you want an up close and personal look at what is going to be hot in handbags for Spring 2009 then Sole Commerce, Coterie's sister at the Javitt's Center, is a great place to start. LAI, Badgley Mischka, Rafe, Lauren Merkin, and Dusica and Dusica were some of our favorites. Jewel tones, exotics, patents and hardware all clearly remain big sellers but our personal favorites were the nudes at Dusica and Dusica!
Bag fiends, listen up. Luna Boston's sale section is stuffed with purses, from metallics to patents, evening bags to oversize styles.
Take a lookie at this Rafe Coco Large Tote ($275, originally $550). What appeals to me are the subtle floral perforations. Styles from Lauren Merkin, Foley + Corinna, Badgley Mischka Platinum, and Cynthia Rowley are also up for grabs, so start grabbing.
All this time I've been trying to focus on acquiring classic handbags for my collection. But after visiting the bag bazaar I am drawn to the colors, prints and funkiness of the newest crop of bags. I still think having an everyday Prada or a coveted Chanel is a Fab idea, but so is mixing it up with an interesting tote that causes your pupils to dilate upon first look. With all the fresh options for Spring, get lost at the bag bazaar.
Colorblock is no new kid on the block. Don't get me wrong — I'm not dissing the geometric pattern, but I am happy to see the boldness translate onto accessories. This is a heaven sent for those with a closet full of LBDs — throw on a colorblock accessory and your look is far from ordinary. The power of colorblock is in your hands, and feet.
The Lucky Shops event over the weekend brought out a limited edition, anthracite snakeskin clutch, wallet, and card case by Rafe. The designer partnered with Chevrolet (yes, the car company) to create the three-piece collection in honor of the new Chevy Malibu.
Now that the event is over, you'll be able to purchase one, two, or all pieces at Bluefly and Luckyshops.com. The collection, retailing from $75 to $150, is coming soon to a computer near you. It'll go great with your Fall wardrobe. Check back to the aforementioned sites to see when they arrive.
I bet you Kate Hudson's character in Almost Famous, Penny Lane, had a favorite style handbag. And I bet you it was the hippie classic hobo. While the hobo has a reputation for being the stoner of handbags, there is no denying the slouchy, laid-back shape is groovy, man. Enter hobo redux...meet some modern day hobos.
So Balenciaga's intense tank shoe may have been a bit dramatic for some of you, but nonetheless it gave us a glimpse into the new must have metallic: coppertone. I'm pretty stoked about this because I bought my first pair of Christian Dior sandals that were from their Resort collection and they are bronze. I can't wait to whip them out, but my feet need some color first. Here are some bronzed items to get you in the mood for summer:
Gucci Peggy Large Top Handle Bag, $3,190.
