Sale PSA: Great summer wedge sandals in cork, now just $53 (nude and black patent are also on sale), Ray-Ban “Icon” sunglasses (these are likely my next sunnies purchase as they’re so light), now 25% off, a mini envelope crossbody bag from Sophie Hulme in fun summer shades of yellow and tan, now under $180, and an excellent pair of white platform sandals from Vince, now 30% off (the camel are 25% off here) – I’ve been eyeing both colors and can’t decide!
If you’re interested in my Gucci Marmonts (or any other Gucci shoes, like these classic loafers) – Saks has a great deal right now, for up to $275 off your purchase with code SPEND2GET. My Marmonts are $575 after the code, the lowest I’ve seen them.
I recently bought this beautiful floral Fendi Strap from the “Strap You” line (tan still available here – act fast if you’re interested), and it’s been one of my favorite spring purchases. When I first saw these straps, I have to admit that I never thought I’d be buying one – they’re quite expensive! When my friend got one, I admired it quite a bit, but the clincher was hearing that the wide strap was light and comfortable. Poof – I was done. Take my money, Fendi!
Most of the Fendi “Strap You” line is reversible, and on the plain calfskin versions (like this great blue/red one), I think you can totally take advantage of both sides equally. The floral one I have is also reversible in theory, but its clearly meant to be used flower side out.
I love my Hermes bags, but to be honest I don’t always love the straps. The Bolide and Kelly – two of my favorite bags – both have straps that I sometimes wish were a little wider (for comfort) and shorter (because duh, I’m short). The Fendi “Strap You” straps however, are perfect as shoulder straps. They run about 35 inches total, or about 15 inches as a drop from the shoulder. The straps are all quite light too, even on embellished versions like mine.
My Black Bolide is quite a serious bag – and at first I didn’t know if the bright florals would go with the bag. But it did, and makes the bag so fun! I’d been having some trouble using this Bolide in warm weather since its such a dark, heavy looking bag – but the strap lightens it right up.
