HERO

After nailing the art of killer kicks (what city girl doesn’t drool over a pair of Loeffler Randall heels?), Loeffler Randall’s savvy creative director, Jessie Randall, branched out in 2012 with a heart-fluttering lineup of must-buy bags. Loeffler addicts everywhere suddenly had to make room in their closets (and budgets) for another fixation. Of course, no one’s been complaining—Loeffler Randall’s distinctive handbags are gob-smackingly chic, but also lie on the affordable end of the designer handbag spectrum with clutches starting at $295.

We recently asked Jessie Randall to dish a little on her brand and the Mini Rider Crossbody we’re featuring in our ‘It’ Bags for the Street Set campaign this month.

“I think this bag is perfect for [the Nordstrom] customer because she is savvy. She’s very fashionable. She’s extremely conscious of comfort.” —Rebecca Minkoff

Marni + Romina Quirós

The latest brand/artist collaboration puts the spotlight on Romina Quirós, an Argentine illustrator whose elegant, minimal drawings appear on fall accessories from Marni. To celebrate the partnership, creative director Consuelo Castiglioni had panels featuring Quirós’s drawings installed in the company’s Milan showroom.

 

Quirós’s creative process is as simple as her artwork: she begins with a black blot on the page, and from there, playful characters emerge. Check out her work on this leather-trimmed iPad sleeve.

Sarah, our Personal Stylist Manager at South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa, CA), took time during our busy Anniversary Sale to throw out her most-wanted Anniversary items.

1.
Pour la Victoire ‘Prado’ Tote. This is a great bag for fall! It offers function and fashion at a fabulous price.

2.
Stuart Weitzman ‘Accumulate’ Boot. The perfect blend of classic and tough makes this boot extremely versatile.

3.
Zella ‘Live-In Leggings’. Every girl should own these. I wear mine with oversized sweaters and boots. The best part is, you can lose the boots, put on a Zella tee and head to yoga.

4.
Truth & Pride Perforated Leather Biker Jacket. I am crazy about this leather jacket! It works so easily with other pieces, and its biker cut will rev up your fall wardrobe in an instant!

5.
Paige ‘Skyline Skinny’ Jeans. I love the color of the denim and fit of these jeans. The soft grey is a fantastic neutral that will become your go-to bottom for fall.

6.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Oversized Sunglasses. New sunnies are not a summer-only necessity; as the seasons change, so should your shades. This style pictured is the perfect way to break into a larger frame. Go for it!

7.
Joan & David ‘Quimberly’ Pump. A playful-yet-chic pump is the perfect balance to fall’s knits and leather. Wear it to work with a pencil skirt for a sophisticated look, or rock skinny jeans and a leather jacket for a night out.

8.
Vince Boatneck Tee. Premium basics are a wise choice. You need to have cozy, yet stylish, layering pieces to be ready for any kind of weather. Throw it on under a knit or a leather jacket—this tee can do it all!

9.
Clarisonic Mia 2. This is my number-one beauty must-have! Your skin will glow, and you’ll get the most out of your products. This is a game-changer for your skin.

10.
Rebecca Minkoff ‘M.A.C.’ Python-Embossed Crossbody Clutch. Python is a playful way to keep things neutral while adding texture.
