She She Me Sponsors Macy's and Zappos
Best Handbags for the Season
Happy Halloween! Oh, I just love Halloween. And it’s not because I just picked up these gorgeous Kate Spades at a Halloween boutique sale. It’s because of the candy. That’s why I love it. I don’t care if I’m in my twirties, I will always love free candy. Even when I have to wear dentures to eat it.
This year I am visiting family (aka: She She Me) and will not be attending any parties to fulfill my much-needed candy fix, but I have alerted She She to my need for said free candy and I’m hoping she will indulge me. I’m seeing Reese’s in my near future. And Twix. And Snickers. And a myriad of other scrumptious bites.
Enough about my candy-obsession; I’ll be better off if I don’t dwell on it. Honestly, there are a lot of things I’d rather not think of at the moment. One of those things is the possibility of She She ignoring my blatant request for candy upon arrival this evening. Another is winter. I am so enjoying the gorgeous fall conditions (and would rather not consider the upcoming rain, snow, sleet and altogether cold weather.) Although I guess the best thing for me to do is to look on the bright side: I can finally unwrap my gorgeous new wrap collar coat (which has been sitting in its box on a shelf in my closet for four months — except for that one time in August when I cranked up the air conditioning just so I could wear it). And I can wear sweater dresses and tights (which means I can also give the old shaver a rest!) and my scrumptuous new red suede boots! Note to self: Have boots waterproofed before jumping in puddles this year.
Unfortunately, winter will come whether I like it or not and it’s always best to be prepared for a change in season. It’s also easier to be prepared when you set your focus on things like handbags, so that’s exactly what I’ve decided to do.
Winter 2008 has plenty of great options to choose from on the handbag front.
Best Handbags for Winter:
Croc, Python and Ostrich—Oh, My! Texture is in this winter. Keep your eyes peeled for great bags of reptilian nature, as well as great ostrich-inspired pieces. Popular colors fall in the natural, more subtle tones. Of course, rich red is always a winter favorite and an exception to that rule.
Hey There, Stud. As much as I’d love to announce the option to shop for your perfect man at the nearest department store, the “stud” I am referring to merely adorns your handbag. There are tons of funky, fabulous options to choose from! Bring out the rocker within!
Patent Leather Beauties. Something about that shine of patent leather makes a girl wanna shop! But first you’ll have to shop for the perfect patent leather purse to inspire such future shopping excursions. I happen to love this gorgeous eggplant hobo by Olivia Harris—great punch of color for those dreary days ahead.
Big Bows. Designers aren’t going for subtle when it comes to bow accents this winter. They are keeping it fabulously chic, however. I love this great Juicy tote for weekend shopping with the girls.
So there you have it: the best bag trends for winter. My next focus will be shoes. Yes, that sounds like a great plan. Happy Halloween! Enjoy your free candy (even if you have to steal it from your kids)! I know I will.
