Dome You Want One?

Sometimes in life it’s important to ditch the big purse and take something that will hold only the absolute essentials: ID, lipstick, and cash for a taxi, if needed. When that’s all you want, this is all the purse you’ll need:

Cole Haan Genevieve Woven Dome Wristlet Meet the Cole Haan Genevieve woven dome wristlet. It’s got enough room to hold the minimum requirements for an evening of clubbing or a great party without getting in your way.

It’s also so pretty you’ll want to keep an eye out lest some lady with equally good taste and a too bulky bag is tempted to make off with it!

If someone tries it, defend your property…then let her know where to get it at a legal steal. The retail value may be $225.00, but right now it’s on sale at Bloomingdale’s for just $157.50.

Go For the Bronze!

When metallics are popular, sometimes it’s easy to forget that gold, silver, and glittery grass green aren’t the only options. My personal favorites are the subtler shades…things like copper and bronze.

Cole Haan bronze leather 'Village Soft' continental walletThis Cole Haan bronze leather wallet wins first prize in my book. Just look at the bold decorative stitching and handsome brass buckle. On the inside, there are a zipped pocket, two slit pockets, six card slits and an ID window. That’s about as practical as you could like, as well as beautiful.

And speaking of beautiful, there’s the question of the price. The retail value of this handsome wallet is $195.00, but you wouldn’t want to pay that much if you can help it. The good news is that Bluefly carries it for $117.00. The even better news is that right now, they’re having a huge spring sale. That means you can get this wonderful wallet for just $99.45!

Now that’s what I call a winning price.

Penny From Heaven…or at Least Bloomies

It’s certainly a heavenly deal. This is the Penny small clutch by Cole Haan.

Cole Haan Penny Clutch PurseJust look at how pretty it is! It’s made of black satin with a charming patent flap and a pretty silver button detail. Imagine what a perfect finishing touch this would be to any evening look.

And then imagine that you can save a lot of money while getting this gorgeous clutch.

Guess what! That dream can come true!

All you need to do is head over to Bloomingdale’s and order it there. You see, they used to sell the purse for $225.00, but right now it’s just $157.50!

Ah, a dream come true, indeed.

Some Enchanted Evening Coat

We’ve all seen the sad sight of a gorgeous woman in a beautiful evening gown wearing a utilitarian day coat because she doesn’t have something as fabulous and frothy as the dress to keep away the evening chill. Every woman should have a great evening coat or wrap so that she isn’t the woman wearing a dull day coat over her diaphanous gown.

As it happens, I saw a great option for evening over at Bluefly.

Cole Haan gold sateen belted puff sleeve coat This lustrous gold sateen puff sleeved coat from Cole Haan will look every bit as elegant as what’s underneath without attempting to take center stage for itself. The 3/4 sleeves and self belt are elegant and on trend while the notched collar is a timeless classic element. There’s a hidden button placket and a back kick pleat, too. The length also makes it appropriate for the cocktail hour and more formal daytime events.

Of course one reason so many women never get an evening coat is the pricetag so often attached. Well, as luck would have it, Bluefly has just taken an extra discount on this superfantastic piece. The original retail price was $595.00. Bluefly’s original price was $299.99. But right now it’s been marked down to $269.99! That’s 55% off the retail price!

At a price like that, a lot more of us can afford to make the best possible entrance.

Quite the Feather in Your Purse

If you’ve been looking at your old wallet thinking it’s seen considerably better days, now might be a good time to head on over to Bluefly.com and take a look at this handsome, practical, yet fun Cole Haan travel wallet.

Cole Haan Embossed Travel Wallet The Nude (beige) coloring is always tasteful, and that embroidered feather will bring a smile to many a face.

The bi-fold interior includes room for all your necessities with its double billfold, snap coin pocket, two card slots and an ID window for when you need to flash your face at Security…or a store clerk asks for photo ID to make sure it’s really you using your credit card. And when you’re done with your shopping, it zips securely and slips easily into even quite a compact handbag, seeing as it measures just 5″ x 4″ when closed.

So how much is this baby? Well, the retail value is $135.00. Bluefly usually carries it for $81.00, which is quite good. Right now, though, they’ve got it on a further sale so you pay just $67.99! Just stick your savings in the double billfold and the snap coin purse and go. Oh, and send me a postcard when you get there. You can afford it.
