Blanket Boot

They..

did it again. No. 6, and their infamous clog boots have come back with some great additions to the collection for the upcoming season. I was at the shop a few weeks ago and saw samples of the blanket boot. Needless to say, I’ve been minorly obsessed ever since. It’s pretty much their classic buckle boot with a panel of Navajo-inspired wool fabric. The fabric’s from Italy, they’re handmade, super comfortable, practical, and oh-so cool. I lived in my shearling ones last season and I’m thinking these could be a great addition to the closet. Thrilled to see them online, I bet my credit card company is too.

from Veja seems like it would keep everything perfectly tucked away, and kept in its proper place. The brown suede with the contrast elastic band makes a great color combo and has an organic cotton lining. Veja always practices fair trade when producing their environmentally friendly products like shoes, bags and accessories. Nice looking pieces that probably only get better with age, makes it worth every penny.

Nico Drawstring Shoulder Bag

Thinking..

Benah Nico Drawstring Shoulder Bag, $395

Benah Nico Drawstring Shoulder Bag, $395

the Nico Drawstring Shoulder Bag by Benah may be a must-have for fall. It’s available for Pre-Order on MYCHAMELEON, an online store that’s got a well-curated assortment of contemporary goods as well as emerging designers from around the world.  Since being introduced to the Australian site a few months ago, it’s become a regular when I’m browsing online shops and it’s hard to leave without finding something to add to my wishlist.  This well-constructed shoulder bag is made of  suede and leather – the color is absolutely stunning and something tells me it might just get better with wear.. if that’s even possible.  In addition to a drawstring closure and the strap that looks perfect for over the shoulder or wearing cross-body, it has a cotton lining and pockets on the inside and outside. It seems totally functional, really great looking and something that’s going to last for a long time. I want!

Barker Black

Even though..

Barker Black Spectator Shoes

Barker Black Spectator Shoes

I love my guy in sneakers, its nice to see him wear something a little more dapper every now and then. The Barker Black Spectator Shoes are a bit more aspirational than affordable, but it’s a brand that I really admire for their craftsmanship. The company has been around for 130 years and is surely only getting better with age. Barker Black designs with subtle details (look closely at the toe for the crowned skull and crossbones),  and every shoes is finished by hand using “good year welted construction.” So basically what this means is these shoes will stick with you, as long as you stick with them.

Anniel Sport Shoes

Kind of loving..

Anniel Sport Shoes

Anniel Sport Shoes

Anniel Sport shoes from Italy. Another brand I was introduced to during market (I have to say, learning about brands/designers makes long days and running around the city a bit more worthwhile). Annie Sport was created in 1976 for ballerinas. Recently, it gained popularity on the streets of Japan, which sparked the expansion of the collection. The silhouette has characteristics of a ballet slipper, but it’s offered in a ton of colors & styles – all with rubber-soles and suede or super-soft leather. Yes, please!

Living in..

Leather Shearling Clog Boots

5" Leather Shearling Clog Boots $360

my No. 6 shearling boots.  Everyone said I would. I know I’m late to it, but can’t not mention how happy I am with this purchase. I’ve been wearing them pretty much none stop since I bought them last month. They are comfy, warm and good in the snowy, slushy NY weather. Worth it!

*AW11 is now available! Check out No. 6’s update to their classic buckle style – the blanket boot!
