ASOS: Studded Punchout Pocket Satchel

Never is a day brighter than the day a bag you’re lusting over goes on sale. And that day, my friends, is here. Once upon a time, I spotted this ASOS suede studded Punchout pocket satchel. And I fell in love. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what it is that makes me die over this beauteous bag. But okay, here I go. It’s got to be the perforated detailing, adjustable strap for crossbody perfection, multiple compartments and, simply, the on-trend gray that undoubtedly goes with any outfit. So, off my wish list and into my shopping cart you go.

United Nude: Laser Pump

Talk about a shoe with serious attitude. This snazzy heel is called the Laser Pump Break Hi. One more time: Laser Pump Break Hi.

Created by the United Nude Team, this heel was designed using technological innovation—or, in plain English, with the purpose of tending to both trend and comfort concerns. But to be honest, this four-inch, lilac beauty with detailed laser patterns would sell me with or without the comfort assurance. What about you?

NARS: A Perfect Berry Lipstick

Anyone who knows me is aware of my lipstick addiction. And I’m not just talking a dab or hint of color. No. The darker the better. I don't apply the smokin’ red shade either, I stick to deep purples - (before the berry phase hit magazines, thank you). I would like to owe it all to my fab sense of style, but this I must credit to miss J.P. (That’s Joey Potter, people. You know, of Dawson’s Creek. Sheesh!)

Anyway, I was recently gifted the most perfect shade: NARS Scarlet Empress. Not only does it brighten your face and add a true POP, but also isn’t as matte as most grandma-esque lipsticks. Because it boasts a semi-sheer glaze, you don’t even need a mirror – so, if you’re anything like me, you’ll have no issues applying in any place, at any time.

Kate Spade Cat-Eye Sunglasses

Who says sunglasses are only for sunny days? I certainly do NOT. In fact, it's the only time of year when unfortunate face tan lines are never an issue. And though the snow may be falling, when you’re sporting a solid cat-eye pair, like this navy and red Kate Spade Soliel style, the clouds are never a question. These lightweight, oversized sunglasses have a great shape for every face, plus the colors are a refreshing alternative to typical tortoise or black frames. What d’ya say? Would you rock winter eyewear?
