Something's happened to me—I was never a fan of fashion sneakers. Until I went to Europe last month. I had to buy some comfy shoes in a hurry and I was happy with their performance, but not necessarily with their style appeal, especially when I scoured the feet of all the Parisians everywhere—they wear legit fashion sneakers. And so I vowed after my trip to snap up a pair of perfectly stylish and practical fashion sneakers for myself. I think these might be them. This charming peach, perforated leather pair from Veja caught my eye at Cameron Marks. For $180, it's an investment, sure, but one that's well worth the price.
Pretty soon, it's going to be coat season. I have several long coats that I've had in circulation for the last few years, but I've always got my eye out for something new and beautiful. This gorgeous grey beauty from Sézane certainly caught my eye. At $380, it's certainly an investment piece, but it's one you won't regret.

When I was in Paris recently, I missed the opening of the Sézane L'Appartement by just a week. I didn't realize the store was closed for a remodel and I made the long walk there to check it out, but alas, the doors were locked and just reopened recently both in Paris and for the first time in New York.
This beloved French line is all about timeless beauty and pretty things, including the bag seen above. I guess it's a good thing the store was closed as I would have been tempted to snap up this $365 Terracotta colored Tiger bag.
Take a look at it here and see if you can walk away from it.
After spending a little over two weeks in Europe, I discovered that a necessary item to bring is a stylish backpack or cross body bag. I had both...and neither. I had a backpack that wasn't all that stylish, and a cross body bag that was equally unstylish. I used the backpack to lug my stuff onto the airplane, and then used the cross body bag when traipsing around Paris. It was a functional approach, but I could have saved some time and luggage space if I'd had one all-purpose bag. And this one from COS might have just been the kind of bag that could have taken care of all my needs. Grey, suede, big enough for a water bottle and iPad, and small enough to still be "cool,” my eye is on this backpack for my next adventure.
