A no-hassle tassel

I'm generally not a fan of tassels or fringe -- I immediately think of a western theme gone wild in a bad way. Even the famed Balenciaga bags are sometimes too much for me. Ralph Lauren can be the same with his fringed pieces. If you add a great deep purple into the mix, though, I can be swayed. Case in point: the fabulous Coach Brynne. It's similar to a Gucci Boston or Louis Vuitton Speedy, but the leather is divine and the colors rich. The website shot of the purple doesn't do it justice -- it's much better looking in person. So of course you're not surprised that I added one to my collection.

Bootie fall fever

Fall is almost here, and all the new boots in stores are looking great. I love to start off fall with new basics.

On my immediate wishlist is a pair of Gucci brown suede boots on the DSW site and a pair of black suede Christian Louboutin boots that I saw at my local Saks.
