i want…

I’ve mentioned Sergio Rossi on the site before. I don’t understand why I didn’t look at the website further. I was missing the shoe gold mine!

It started at Red Apple. Mocha over the knee riding boots. I could faint!

And the similar red leather boot with a turned down cuff.

These two beautiful boots are all from Fall/Winter 2005. I wonder what Spring Summer 2006 brings, stay tuned.

i want: Fall 2005 Handbags

I’ve come across some very cool handbags in the last few days.

Missoni Velvet Satchel

This bag is beautiful. I love everything about this bag. I love the colour scheme and pattern; the unusual shape and the hardware used for the clasp. This luxurious bag is made of black leather and velvet.

Oscar de la Renta Embellished Suede Hobo

This beauty is made of chocolate suede and has golden hardware. My favourite part of this bag is the engraved coins placed all over the body of the bag. It’s also big and slouchy, I love that.

Carlos Falchi Nubuck Tall Hobo

Moss green nubuck with braided leather strap and top flap.

Be & D Crawford Cruise Bag

Here’s another slouchy hobo bag in cognac. I love the riveting on the leather shoulder strap. This bag comes in other colours like Chocolate, Oz Emerald/Lime, Plum/Cognac (next favorite colour) and Washed Apple Green Python.
