Sac du jour

August 12, 2010

That's right- the sales are on, people, and we were there to pick up. We did good.

Today on Sac du jour we play a little game of show and tell.

That is, I show you what I picked up for $39.99 at Nine West shoes and then I post a few handbag and clutch matches. Sound fun? Let’s kick it!

Sale item #1: lace-up satin platform sandals.

I fell for these when I saw someone else trying them on (more about this later). It’s very possible that they’re the sexiest shoes I’ve ever seen. I took a spin in them around the Nine West store and a nice man waiting for his wife to make her own footwear selections looked at me wide-eyed and said, “You need to get these shoes.” Done.

Day look: Lumina mixed materials bag, $79.99 on sale

Evening look: the Raquel clutch, $37.50 on sale

Sale item #2: strappy sandals with silver python-textured strap (silver strap not shown, although I assure you it’s there).

These shoes speak for themselves: they’re a little less sex-on-heels then the lace-ups (above) and with the silver detail in the mix, they’re a perfect match to many a mini or cigarette pant.

The sac match:

Day look: Clio shopper bag, $69.99 on sale

Evening look: Detailed clutch, $39.99 on sale

Special thanks to Jenna Wakani (Toronto-based fashion photographer and my new shopping BFF) who was trying these shoes on and convinced me that I could pull these off any day. “I’ve pulled off worse. Besides, they’re black; who doesn’t need black shoes?” Jenna, you’re so right.

Notable mention: nice man and his wife shopping at the store. One look at me in the lace-up heels and a few slow nods later, I figure I can stop traffic in these if I need to.
