There's something about Christmas in New York. Habitually Chic's Heather Clawson's Instagram has been filled with chic photos of garland and townhomes in the city and I can't get enough of them.
I first blogged about Clare Vivier in 2010 (here) and I'm still lusting over her bags. I've moved on from wanting the messenger bag to the foldover clutch. A friend gifted me a Christmas package with a cut out picture of a clutch and cash to buy one (so I could pick out the color) but I somehow never got around to ordering one.
Foldover Clutch in Caramel with a black and white stripe
This one is definitely on my wish list for 2015. I can't believe I've wanted one of her bags for 5 years now!
One of my favorite purchases from our Italy trip this past spring was my Coccinelle bag. We stumbled across a store in Lucca and I fell in love.
Here are a few of my favorites from their Fall/Winter 2016 collection.
As soon as I saw these Yosuzi hats I imagined Carrie Bradshaw wearing one as she traipsed around the West Village. Beautifully colored and handmade in Venezuela, these hats are not only a statement piece but charitable. A portion of each sale goes to a non-profit dedicated to the health, clothing and education of Indian children.
From the Yosuzi site:
The hats are made of 100% Iraka Palm Straw, harvested from the Iraka Palm, and finished with whimsical, handwoven trimmings. Each hat takes about eight hours to weave. Made with a diagonal weaving technique unique to the tribe, the hats’ patterns and symbols represent the spiritual wisdom of Yosuzi’s ancestors.
