Month: September 2009

Puckered Canvas Bag from Anthro

For some reason I always feel like I need to have a unique bag for the summer. During hot months leather seems so heavy and oppressive, and I want to carry something lightweight and slightly beachy. For the past too summers I’ve been happily using my JCrew straw tote, but this summer it just wasn’t doing it for me.

A few weeks ago I stopped by the Rockefeller Center Anthro to check out the sale section and found the beautiful Puckered Canvas Bag and it is the best summer bag I’ve found yet. Perfect size and it looks good with all my summer outfits. I’m not to fond of the name thought, so from now on I will be calling it my “Last Days of Summer Bag”.

Christian Siriano for Payless

I was going to write whole blog review about the Christian Siriano line for Payless…but then my favorite Fashion Herald went and did all the work for me..MWAAHAHAHA…so I’m going to be lazy and just link.

My takeaway for this line is that it is super fun & fierce and SUPER impractical, which I assume is exactly what Christian set out to do.   I already have a closet full of insane high heels that are beautiful but I never wear since I can’t walk more than one block in them, so why add to the pile?

Lots of shoes at the 34th Street & Broadway store. The will be showing up on Sept 8th for all the non-Manhattan folk.

Beautiful attention to detail, especially for a Payless shoes. But where would I wear it?

I also checked out some of the other designer shoes and I am one again linking to Fashion Herald’s review. My verdict? I am waiting for the Dauphin to show up. Now there is an impractical shoe I would take a chance on!
