Patently Gorgeous

I must confess that in general patent leather doesn’t do much for me. It really never has. Most of the time I prefer my leather with a more matte finish. Every once in a while, though, a piece comes along that reminds me that patent leather can be utterly fabulous, even in my book when used correctly.

Michael Kors Redding Patent Clutch This utter delight in clutch purse form is the Redding by Michael Kors, and it makes me love patent leather. Just look at the flirty styling with its double buckle detail and try to tell you don’t find it swoonworthy!

What more could you possibly want to know? Okay, maybe you want to know that it’s on sale at Bloomingdale’s (regularly priced at $198.00, it’s been marked down to just $138.60), and that it’s also available in basic black.

But really, it’s all about those buckles.

Hey Stud!

One of my favorite scenes in a sitcom ever comes from the British show Coupling. Steve and Susan are going to move in together and are shopping for a new sofa for their home. When Susan asks Steve what he thinks of a throw pillow, he throws a fit and gives an impassioned speech on the uselessness of throw pillows and his utter contempt for the species that never fails to leave me in stitches.

As it happens, while I find the speech hilarious, I do like pillows. I like how they look and I do tend to cuddle up with them on chilly evenings. Today I found one not even Steve could object to too horribly. Here it is.

Michael Kors Studded Suede Pillow This suede throw pillow by Michael Kors means business, but it’s not afraid to let its softer side show, too. If you’re in the market for something cuddly enough to make her happy and masculine enough not to make him throw a fit, this could be your answer.

Oh, and don’t let price worry you, either. The retail value may be $190.00, but Bluefly has it at 40% off for a quite believable $114.00. And can you really put a price on something classic and classy that allows both side to win in the battle of the decorating sexes? I think not.
