December isn’t over yet, but I feel confident enough at this point that I can start to list out some of my favorite purchases of the year. Enjoy!
1. Black Hermes Bolide, size 35cm: I added this bag early on in the year, since my mom took possession of my 31cm size (I did a comparison of the two sizes, here). I love it and it is the perfect size for travel and for cramming all of my daily work items. I think this bag has had more random pieces of fruit and water bottles rolling around in it than any others. I also love its Fjord leather – I wish I could get more bags in this hardy leather!
2. Barton Perreira Ronette sunglasses: I am a sunglasses fiend and continually subject my shopping partners to long try outs at the glasses counters. My favorite brand currently is Barton Perreira – I love their styles, they’re quite wearable and the quality is really good too. The style I own from them is called the “Ronette” – a soft cat eye and it comes in the coolest colors – all neutrals, but with something special about each. The only problem is the price, of course…much more than some competitors, more in the Chanel range.
